  While pondering what I will make with my left-over Arrowroot flour I found other birds-of-a-feather trying the same thing online. The following link has interesting perspectives on the differences between the nutrition of cornstarch vs. the use of arrowroot flour. It seems that you can use them both equally except that arrowroot breaks down […]

My 2014 garden and crops depended almost entirely on the amount of water I manually provided them for drink. That wasn’t much. I will do better in 2015. I need a good strawberry year again. I’ve got twice as many Raspberries as I need since I encouraged all my neighbors to grow their own (which […]

So now I want to sing the praises of Arrowroot. When I attempt to bake and cook without wheat (not that I think all wheat is bad, it’s just that my body is turned off by it…maybe I had too much gmo or sprayed wheat??) I find a number of alternative flours. What with the […]

Almost every excuse is gone now. Canning is over; Christmas is gone; The tax work and paper-work jungle is in order. If I don’t want to start the mending, then…it IS time to winnow and separate the seeds!

…out of house and home. They like the tantalizing tidbits in my garden that represent exotic treats to them. What’s not to like? I thought it odd that they didn’t pass by and nibble down the rows of lettuce and cabbage this spring. They’ve apparently changed their itinerary this year to late fall. Pruned carrots. […]

…and this year they are smarter than ever. I’ve been growing my own corn for a few years now, determined to grow as much of what I eat, as I can. This spring I didn’t have a chance to start more than one batch of seedlings. The first ones weren’t warm enough in the beginning […]

Yes! So… can we tell when winter is coming and how long it will be, etc…….without looking at the Farmer’s Almanac, and googling it? Hubby reminded me yesterday, while we peered out the window at the dusky white day that had arrived, about the year that winter had arrived and stayed so early, years ago. […]

The longest day of the year has arrived. I stayed up all night to see where the sun went… …then it dawned on me.

Babies add joy to my life. My 50 chicks are almost 2 weeks old and eating  over a gallon of ground up alfalfa, clovers, and dandelion greens….phew!…a lot of work for me and my blender. These young plants have about an 18% protein content which, if supplemented with a small portion of fishmeal or other […]

I had a few special privileges when I was growing up. Being in a Brownie pack was one. That sounds strange when I think of a brownie, now, as a sweet and gooey baked desert. Anyway, I obviously wasn’t that kind of brownie. I don’t think I had a uniform right off, so I would […]
