    Cover crops and permanent rows~anyone doing them?

    Very nice. I need to get some of this white dutch clover since I'm getting bees early this spring. I have a nice big bee garden right now full of perennial bee loving flowers. However I can increase their food by using this method between my veggie rows. Thanks!

    Ideas for adding a few hundred $ in your pocket.

    Rules are pretty strict here re: selling home prepared food items in general. I do get my rabbit from the ranch where my daughter takes horseback riding lessons. It is only "word of mouth" marketing though. Lots of people sell eggs here however I don't think they are really supposed to.

    They are beautiful! I was wondering the same thing, are they raised up or is that an optical illusion?

    Ideas for adding a few hundred $ in your pocket.

    WBF, where do you get the scrap? I have a little booth that I rented and even though I sell handmade aprons, laundry soap and soap, people have been snatching up my other things like old clothes, saddles, house plants and even my daughter's used flute first.

    Any experience with LED Lanterns (long-lasting room light)?

    Well, we have used them indoors (lots of windy power outages here) and I still don't really like them. The light is blueish and not very bright, even though it has low med and high settings. I did like our large "spot light" led flash light though. The one we had (daughter lost it at a camp...

    Cannning JARS?????

    I store lots of food in canning jars in the freezer. They should be just fine. (Note if you store liquids in them make sure you have at least 2 inches of head room or they will break.) :)

    Any experience with LED Lanterns (long-lasting room light)?

    I have two of them. (One is battery operated one is hand crank operated). I do not like either one of them b/c they aren't very bright. It makes night time chores very difficult and even dangerous out here in the dark forest. (It gets almost pitch black by 5:00-30 up here this time of year.)

    Horse Slaugher Now Legal for Human Consumption

    I am also ok with it as long as it is done humanely...which it wasn't in the past. I was one of the protesters that got it outlawed in TX. I saw first hand horses loaded like cattle and sitting in traffic (Houston) in scorching heat. I also know the way they were killed was traumatic for...

    Bee, my friend from S. Africa says that was how they kept the rhinos(!) out of their gardens. Except I think it was lower to the ground.

    Sufficient Self Forum - Let's have a heart-to-heart

    About one year ago my daughter suffered a trauma in the ER--died and came back to life 10 minutes was horrible. Almost every single member of this site-- who was a member on or before Sept. 3, 2010 sent her a gift or a card. I can still tell you who sent what and how it touched us...

    Judge Judy says you can tell a teenager is lying when their mouth moves. :P Think of how much you are going to LOVE life after she turns 18, then you can thank her. :P

    Where did everyone go?

    It is rather difficult hearing my friends being called "culls" too. I can tell you those culls taught me everything I know about achieving my level of self sufficiency. I also know leaving was a difficult decision for them and it feels like they are being kicked when they are down. Low class.
