Hi Alex,

Sounds like you're my kind of person. I'm also pretty young, only 19, and I'm in the process of getting my B.S. in Food Science at the University of Minnesota. I'm also crazy about baking and making food. If you like having pets, have you heard of aquaponics? It is a closed-loop system wherein fish fertilize the water that feeds growing vegetables.
