Gardening can help older adults Improve their Physical and Mental Health

On average retirees between ages 65 and 74 have seven to eight hours of leisure time, according to data from the American Time Use Survey conducted by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. You spend your working years wishing you had more free time, and then get overwhelmed by the bucket loads of free time and space that is dumped on you during retirement. Some spend most of this leisure time watching television, but a number of older adults in Bucks County take up gardening.  A hobby like gardening is ideal because you can alter it to fit you evolving retirement lifestyle. It can also be a way to keep you physically and mentally fit.

Food Terms You Need to Know: Eggs

Cage Free Eggs:
"Cage-free" means that the chickens raised as poultry or the hens laying "cage-free" eggs are, quite simply, not kept in cages. They are free to walk around the hen house, to perch on roosts, and to lay eggs in nests.
"Cage-free" chickens are kept in poultry barns, often in cramped conditions, and may or may not have access to outdoors and pasture.

Free-Range Eggs:

The technical meaning of "Free-Range" as regulated by the USDA calls for poultry to be "allowed access to the outside."

As you might imagine, that phrase can be interpreted generously or quite narrowly. Some farmers let their free-range chickens roam on real fields and pastures. Larger producers, however, have been known to follow only the letter of the law, not its spirit, and put an open window or small door that leads to a paved patch of ground at one end of a large, crowded hen house.
