    the funny farm our real farm name...

    We did too- saved up money for 3 years to do it, but now we have a 6 foot chainlink fence around our place (remember, it's only 1/2 acre). We have 3 gates- the front one for the driveway, and 2 "man-gates" on 2 sides to enable us to go forage the empty meadows on either side. Since the...

    my attempt at oven canning

    My M-I-L did walnut halves. She couldn't remember much about it, because the jars I found in her pantry were dated from 10 years before. Fearing the worst, I broke open the seal and tried them. They were NOT rancid, they were kind of brown and crunchy- I think she must have inadvertently...

    Coronavirus Concern Up

    Well, I'm going by what my dog tag said when I was in the Navy. I know I can't donate blood even though I have the "universal" blood type, because I had hepatitis as a child.

    Frustratedearthmother's Journaling Journey

    I think something was wrong with our weather reports today... It's been reading 46 on my phone most of the day, but the thermometer on our front porch is reading 87 right now.... At first I was wondering if they'd gotten Celsius mixed up with Fahrenheit, but that would have put us at something...

    Coronavirus Concern Up

    Well, I'm type O which is good for this, but type O is more likely to have problems with bacterial infections. For instance, Native Americans are much more likely to have type O, and they were more susceptible to smallpox than Europeans, who have a higher preponderance of A and AB (type B is...

    hqueen's collection of Far From the Usual stuff.

    I've read that if you want good storage onions, you need to remove any blooms as soon as they happen. Of course, if you want seed to plant next year, you would leave the blooms and write those particular bulbs off.

    Coronavirus Concern Up

    I have also read that if you test positive, in some areas every member of your household is assumed to have covid also, Without Testing. I have also read that if you get tested a second or third time (which might happen if you are hospitalized) your positive, as well as the assumed positives of...

    Brown Recluse Spider Bite

    bug bombs don't usually work on spiders. First, the commonest poisons used in "bug bombs" don't work on arachnids. Second, the fogger types don't usually manage to penetrate a lot of the cracks that spiders hide in. Thirdly, a lot of spider-specific ones are actually just repellants, which...

    My dog ate a squeaker toy... :/

    I also highly recommend a book: How To Speak Dog by Stanley Coren.

    Frustratedearthmother's Journaling Journey

    I remember slipping in a bunch of duck poop and falling kerplop in the middle of it.... I had been rushing to let them out of the coop before going to church. I was late to church that day.

    Wow. Maybe we're luckier than we thought that DH's family, as well as mine, have ostracized us. No drama, no horrendous holiday get-togethers, no pretending we're a big happy family.

    Organizing and decluttering the homestead

    I haven't shopped at Goodwill since I found out they are NOT a charitable organization, but a For Profit corporation that managed to get special treatment because they promised to hire the handicapped. They may be hiring a certain class of handicapped, but I personally have never seen anyone...
