  • Description for anything that is able to be broken down by living organisms such as bacteria or fungi. Some biodegradable materials can serve as the ingredients for compost. Items that take a long time to biodegrade will pile up in landfills.
  • capable of being decomposed by e.g. bacteria; "a biodegradable detergent"
  • Biodegradation is the chemical breakdown of materials by a physiological environment. The term is often used in relation to ecology, waste management and environmental remediation (bioremediation). Organic material can be degraded aerobically with oxygen, or anaerobically, without oxygen.
  • (of a substance or object) Capable of being decomposed by bacteria or other living organisms

02-19-09: Improving My Backpacking Meals, Take One
Yes, Yes, I know I said I would try to refrain from taking pictures of my dinner, and I know this looks like several other photos I've taken... But, in my defense, this wasn't my dinner.. No, no.. I didn't even eat much of it. It was a test. Tonight I went to the grocery store for at least an hour, looking for ideas on improving the food I take backpacking. I was in my kitchen for 2-3 hours trying to make some simple backpacking foods. What can I say; I have backpacking on the brain. I mean look, I've even used the word backpacking four times in this paragraph alone. On a trip on the Knobstone trail last year, I decided I was tired of my standard fare. So much so, that I just went hungry on the trip and fanaticized about cheeseburgers and burritos. (I think I lost about 5 lbs after 3 days and 46 miles.) I like the idea of freezer bag cooking. Put dry ingredients in a freezer bag at home. Then on the trail just add boiling water and eat right out of the bag. It’s simple, and there’s nothing to clean up. (If you think doing the dishes isn’t fun, try doing them outside with no sink or running water, with biodegradable soap that you have to bury 6-8 inches into the dirt.) I put some instant rice, dried cranberries, chicken bouillon, salt, a bit of dried minced garlic, sage, and dried minced onions in the bag, then shook it up to mix. I added about a half foil pack of chicken, and a cup of boiling water. Limiting myself with items I would have in my pack, I used my sock cap as a cozy, zipped up the Ziploc and waited about 7-12 minutes for it to cook. I tried two batches. I still need to tweak it. It tasted ok at home but my tastes are different on the trail. Certain flavors just don’t do well with me after hiking all day. This was my best attempt but not perfect. I think I need to adjust the onions and garlic a bit, or leave them out all together. Anyway, I think the sweetness of the cranberries and the foil packed (non-dehydrated) chicken will go well after a day of exhaustive hiking. Also, this was a third of the cost of similar prepackaged backpacking foods... another bonus.

Luna Trick F3 buds (plant 5)
Plant 5 in this batch, bearing a beautiful elegant pair of buds on long curvy stems. This picture also shows what I use to label my individual pea plants in breeding trials. The home-made tag is made from a scrap of polythene (from a Tesco bag) attached with a plastic coated tie that comes free with freezer bags. These tags are not biodegradable so they have to be removed at the end of the season, but they are very reliable. They stay where they are put and remain legible in all weathers, and can be re-used.
