Wow, 100 years ago you paid for your medical treatment by trading goods with your doctor. Now you know what happens when the government gets involved in medical treatment.
I bring my doctor veggies and eggs all the time. OHIP pays for her services. She hasn't said that she cannot accept them. I know my grandfather (who was a pharmacist in a remote, rural area in northern MN) received payment in goods during the '30s and '40s. His family would not have eaten as well as they did if he had had to carry all those accounts on credit.

I give my doctors Christmas presents. They have never indicated it was a problem.

And if it was an ethics issue, it would have nothing to do with the government, which doesn't establish medical ethics.

I decided to give this recipe for zucchini fritters a try since the claim is that they freeze well. I am adding a bit of smoked paprika and lemon zest and juice, subbing chickpea flour for the regular flour.

If it was me and DH kept planting more than we could reasonably use, it would go into the compost pile.

I would set up a road side stand!

I have seen some various recipes for stuffed zucchini. In some of them you just scrape out the seeds leaving the pulp intact, add prepared filling and bake. Others, you scoop out the pulp leaving just a shell, add the pulp to the filling, fill and bake. Do you eat the shell, or just the filling. I thought with the ones that you add the pulp to the filling you would eat just the filling, but then there's the ones that the pulp is left intact in the shell. I'm confused.

Professional medical societies establish medical ethics for their members. My doctor is just probably more cautious than most. That's a lot better than being not cautious enough.

We've done the Farmer's Market and the Roadside stand. Not worth the time it takes to get ready (FM) in the wee hours of the morning, the regs about cutting off tops of carrots, etc., and then when you're done at the end of the day, you have to do s/thing with everything left. Same thing about roadside stand.

And if you want to follow strict laws you have to get a business license, pay city/county taxes on your proceeds, then pay federal income tax on the profits.

We really screwed up in some ways when we went from a barter economy to a currency economy (and taxes and government and all that stuff.)

When you think of it, the government really kills a lot of the economy by either making it too complicated and expensive to deal with it and satisfy all the regulations, or you just wildcat it and ignore the gummint and sell your veggies or trade them (barter) for other stuff.

I like it just fine when I grow stuff and my friends grow stuff and we just give each other our excess. Let the gummint tax giving excess vegetables/fruit to friends, yeah, that won't ever happen.

My friends love the eggs the girls produce (I charge a fee for the carton or, if I deliver, a delivery fee--the eggs are free <g>). I love it that a friend barters her curry powder for eggs and another barters her floral arrangements--I love fresh-cut flowers. Now if I could find s/one to barter seafood...

A friend shared this photo/recipe on Facebook. No, it's not the friend who made it. But, I thought of zucchini haters right away. It's low carb and gluten free 'cause there is no grain.
