    Denim Deb Hay, hay, hay. Thank the Lord!

    Long time (okay, not really, but it feels like it) no talk to! :hugs I haven't read further than this ^^^...that is the story of my life, since we've moved to our newish home. I know I'm doing, but it just doesn't ever seem to show. It's bound to snow or worse, in the past week I've been told...

    Dawn419 & doc's LSTA: Confounded Computer!!!

    I wish bunnies was on my list...still haven't found a local buck but the girls have been worth their weight/feed bill in "gold"! :lol: I've been robbing the families' yard of green goods that grow/stay green over the winter here and they are loving it (both the family and the buns). My favorite...

    Anyone make or use shampoo bars?

    Not a shampoo bar but I've switched to diluted castille soap for shampoo and diluted vinegar for conditioner in the last 2 months. Has it been easy? Heck no...where's the lather and squeeky "clean" noise I'm used to hearing? :lol: long hair appears to be handling it much better, even...

    Rabbits vs chickens

    If you can't tell, we're enablers here! :lol: Seriously though, have both chickens and rabbits and I'd be hard pressed to give either one of them up. If I had to give one or the other up, it would be the dumb guineas...but that's just how I do math here on my place! :lol:

    Does anyone do kitchen scrap gardening? Planting, not composting

    Well, had a major fail on the root cuttings from the ginger and horseradish. We had a bunch of rain after I potted them and the cuttings rotted instead of rooting!:rolleyes: Doc brought home another root of each about a week and a half ago. I was busy with other things and left them sitting...

    Dawn419 & doc's LSTA: Confounded Computer!!!

    You can blame it on my mom, she even said she was pretty sure the snow y'all got was mainly her fault because she cleaned her house, but, that I'm partially to blame since I did water changes in both of the fish tanks! :gig Had a good, short and sweet visit with Granny! Those are always the...

    Here's the thread that so lucky mentioned: Herbal Studies. True that, okra! I have been "dabbling" in herbals for many years...just basics like treating colds, upset stomachs, cuts, bruises, insect bites/stings. etc. My favorite book is The School of Natural Healing by Dr. John Christopher...

    Dawn419 & doc's LSTA: Confounded Computer!!!

    Deb, I just hang the cloves in a mesh bag and try and keep them in a cool/dark spot. Right now, the garlic bag hangs near the camper door, partially behind the curtain. I'd love to keep it in a cabinet under the sink but the mice get it there. :rolleyes: I'm wondering if we could drill holes in...
