I’m planting in the garden — finally! — 4 Comments

  1. Julie, you have to ask your questions thru the blog; sorry…it’s the rules. But yes, I’ve tossed the idea around about doing a seminar or something on self reliant living, but right now I’m so busy I barely am getting done what I have to. Caretaking a 92 year old wheelchair bound Mom is sometimes exhausting, let alone all the day to day homestead stuff.


  2. i am new at canning and was wanting to cut down on the amout of refinded white sugar used. is it possible to use honey or raw sugar. i have just stared bee keeping and would prefer to use honey.
    also we have very hard water in our area so when i can i always get a nasty flim on my jars is there a way to prevent this?

    Have you ever thought of having a survival camp for dummies. I have learned so much from your magazine keep up the good work.

  3. My oh my, what an absolute drop-dead gorgeous sunset. Kinda makes it all worth while at the end of the day, doesn’t it?

  4. Hello Jackie, I love to read your blog and the articles in the Magazine. We also planted some all red or purple potatoes this year . Save all your articles on the bookshelf and lots of Ideas from you in my head. Just have to get more energie to do what i would like to do with canning and raising our own animals. My Husband, two boys and my son in law all go hunting, white tail deer and turkeys. So i can’t complain of not having enough meat. One of my boys started to go fishing in the Bay this year, so we will have at least once a week fresh fish (hopefully). Today he brought home a 32″ Striper, that will be our dinner tommorrow. It is just so nice to know that there are other people out there who do not care to much for going out to eat or buying their meat and vegtables at the store, where you never know where it comes from. Hope I didn’t bore you to much Kerstin
