    What do you do to cut expenses down?

    I have an 18 y/o TV. And one of those black boxes the gov't gave out years ago, plus a little indoor antenna. some days I get channels, some days I don't. since I watch it seldom, it's ok if just one new channel works. LOL If I move the antenna and rescan, things change. With the price of...

    Lazy Gardener's Little Town Farm

    Same here but, as customers told friends, the demand grew. In good season, they pay for their feed plus. It pretty much takes cares of the slow winter egg months. This year I was able to get some very nice pullets to "replace" the older layer slackening and the broody hens on nests. I...

    Yah for new egg layers! And colored, too. How nice. My weather is nothing like yours -- why I live here, LOL -- and older hens are laying sporadically right now but, laying! The younger pullets from 3 months ago are laying every day, strong layers. Ones I just added, are "starting" to...

    SS cafe

    We had about 3 days in a row where we barely got above freezing and so I wormed all my girls! We had 3 more days of mid 20 nights and upper 30 days, so I'm thinking any droppings got frozen. They were sure frozen in the darned feed troughs where they like to lay during he day! Should get...

    Love mine! Have used one for maybe 20 yrs and so nice to get into a warm bed. There is no issue with wires in the bed with you @flowerbug, they are just not there.

    SS cafe

    We had rain during the night -- with winds! Expected much earlier but, 4AM it woke me. Had stopped by 6:30 and not bad or much. Very warm, again. Of course, for 3rd year the plum tree is budding out too early. Guess no plums this year either. Phooey. Put 2 egg eater suspect hens...

    CreativeTwinsZoo's journal of self sufficancy

    I see "neighbors -- so I assume you are in a development setting Have you had any push back from a front yard garden? Or crop losses? At least it's close to tend and pick. :D Years ago, I lived in a condo and rented a small garden area nearby. One where you got a plot for the season, and...

    Plant starting....those of us in the Southern regions are chomping at the bit! Remember that some of the Fall crops can endure the cold when out late winter/early spring. I'm ready for a cold frame to start some of these soon. collecting up my "reuseables" now. Alas, need to till garden...

    What did you do in the garden today?

    In my area, there are a few backyard gardens with greens still very evident. Until last couple of days -- mid 20 nights -- we've had less cold than normal. In fact, we can often dig the snow back and get greens to eat! (when there's snow). Thankfully, no snow to date. Most gardens are...

    Second amendment

    Glad it was peaceful but, they did several arrests prior to this of what they described as "known Neo-Nazi" group members. With the amount of military we have here, I would expect decency and good training to prevail. However, the Charlottesville situation of recent past did add to the...

    Second amendment

    Hmmm...well, I won't be looking at that gun then. VA here. But I rarely use any I have. It is something I've been thinking I need to change up and do some practice. Then I will consider a new one, or not. Oh, I'm also concerned about how many firearms I may have here. Mostly just some...
