    Question about Calcium Hydroxide

    DH was getting rid of some old eggs that we had stored in pickling lime. Somehow, he managed to spill some of the liquid, when some of the eggs broke in the jar. Some of the chickens moved in and started pecking at the egg mixture that was mixed with the lime. Am I gonna have a bunch of dead...

    Planting Corn

    I have a wide row I was thinking of planting to the Painted Mountain corn. It is approximately 24 feet long and 3-4 feet wide, oriented so the prevailing winds would blow through the long side, rather than across it. I was thinking of planting them a foot apart in every direction. Does this...

    The Freeze-Drying Thread

    Ok, I never got around to taking pictures this weekend, but I'm going to start this thread anyway. The first thing I'll do is describe how freeze-drying works. The food gets taken down to a super cold environment in a vacuum. Then the chamber warms up a bit. Since water cannot be liquid in a...

    Jellies, Jams and Conserves, Oh My!

    Here is the recipe I found for Rose Petal Jelly (Martha Stewart Living- yes, The Woman Who Does Everything More Beautifully Than You!). It differs from my old recipe only in the addition of rose water, which I suspect just kicks the rose flavor up a notch. Ingredients 2 cups water 3 cups...
