Re: Garden like it counts (cuz it might) 2020

Luckily... we have a well with good water level and quality. Also, surrounded by wood. so don't have that to deal with. Yes, I too had too much water and just catching up with sun and heat. Nothing fancy neither...well melons, and all the regulars-but thats it. I finally planted a nice bee and medic...

Re: Garden like it counts (cuz it might) 2020

I thought the same way this year...maybe I should use up my older seed, but new seed, add soil to more boxes... Glad I did! Everything’s coming up well. Need a little less rain and a little more sun but I’m sure July will provide. Garden look good! Hope everyone’s saying healthy and getting their pr...

Re: Farming/livestock etc

Another thing I forgot to mention to folk...already-we have been noticing folk are starting to hoard small livestock, as well as garden seed. Interesting when you have trouble finding day olds heritage birds and your seed catalogue says (sold out/sold/out) Glad I harvest seed and I already ordered n...

Re: Laundry Question

The plungers are the best. Or by hand in the tub and just buy a hand crank wringer/hang to dry. Those are easy to find and can clamp to pretty much anything. I also have antique scrub boards. They are, at present, simply decoration in my laundry room. I even have a small one for delicates... :shock:...

Re: Farming/livestock etc

My girls wintered well even with the $&@? cold winter! The roo (Cluck Norris) unfortunately had some frostbite on his comb this year- tried everything I could to avoid that. Now most of the blackened skin has died off so doesn't look as bad -poor dude. Eggs are coming in from both chickens and ducks...

Re: Toilet Paper!!!

I remember getting several bundles of toilet paper years ago- replacing, rotating the TP supply and the cashier saying
"wow! Thats a lot of toilet paper!!!!" To which I said....yup-I'm thinking of opening up a camp ground.
It did the trick in stopping the convo.

Re: Garden like it counts (cuz it might) 2020

First batch of seedlings sitting under light! Still in the house though. Greenhouse all cleaned up and ready to be used! We may try (with extra potatoes) a few long rows on crown land behind our place to test if the potatoes will thrive as well as in our boxes. Grow more potatoes and free up boxes f...
