Re: AUGUST 2016 - What Did You Do To Prep This Week/Month?

Picked up a dozen pallets for some of our building projects. Also stared a batch of spaghetti sauce (it will take a couple of days to cook down before I can it) and sliced up 8 eggplant, then breaded and fried them. Used half to make eggplant parmesan for dinner, and the other half is going into the...

Re: Choosing suitable land size

It depends on your soil and climate conditions. Areas with sufficient rainfall, organic matter in the soil, and good soil chemistry will be much more productive than areas (like mine) that have inadequate rainfall, (or, conversely, too much) insufficient organic matter (it takes TIME, WORK, and work...

Dealer came out today for fix the hydraulic line...turned out there was a defective O-ring at the connection. He replaced it (and will send it on to the manufacturer) then tested to make sure everything was working properly. After that I finished weeding the last two beds.

Re: AUGUST 2016 - What Did You Do To Prep This Week/Month?

Well, the tractor was delivered yesterday. We (hubby took the day off, too) got a run-through on how to operate it. I operated it while the dealer was there. After he left, hubby used it a bit (moved the stupid engine that the previous occupants had left, pushed back one of the brush piles to make r...

Re: Humidity

I swear it's a lot cooler esp with a breeze. Wearing hot sticky clothes is not for me. My ample belly provides shade where needed. What I can't figure out is why the bugs bother me less this way. I just need to convince a few ladies to help me and be rid of those embarrassing bikini lines. I have p...

Re: AUGUST 2016 - What Did You Do To Prep This Week/Month?

Bit the bullet today and bought a tractor. 25 HP, and equipped with a Front-end loader and a back hoe. Eventually, I'll add some additional implements (such as brush mower, front forks, post-hole auger, etc.) It will be delivered next week, along with 3-4 hours of instruction time. It will enable me...

Re: Another reason to prep!

It's one of the reasons that I wanted to move WAY down to the far south end of the Southwest. Can't get much farther south and still be in this country. Just hope it's far enough south. NO WAY would I want to be up north when that happens.

Re: New SEC ruling affects Money Market Accounts

No 401K or IRA here...instead, I'm "investing" in the homestead, and hopefully soon, a tractor. (That way, I can do all the mesquite removal I want, WITHOUT having to pay someone ELSE to do it, not to mention hay/feed hauling, weed/grass cutting/removal, hauling stuff in general, etc.)

Re: Pots and pans

I use either stainless steel pots (some of them copper-bottomed), or cast iron. I've had them for decades. One of the cast iron skillets actually had belonged to my grandmother and one is an old Wagner small skillet. I even use one of my cast iron pots to cook acidic foods such as spaghetti sauce, c...
