I got some mushrooms from the grocery store the other day and it turned out that the ones in the bottom of the container were too far gone to cook so it threw them in my compost bin. Will the spores survive the temperatures generated in the composting process? Will it be possible to have mushrooms in my raised bed garden next year after I add the compost? I know that there other factors that come into play when it comes to whether mushrooms will grow in an area ..read more

We have always grown a garden, but the way food prices have been going up, I'm getting a lot more serious about growing most of the food we eat. Potatoes are our #1 crop. Here's how we plant and grow 300 lbs. of spuds every year. Growing Potatoes Like a Pioneer Every year we grow a big crop of spuds. Potatoes are the lifeblood of our pantry, since they are nutritious and pair well with our other harvests. #homeste... youtu.be ..read more

Greetings all! Furniture styles are definitely not my milieu, but I just garbage-picked this from the curbside in front of an 1870s farmhouse. It’s oak (weighs a ton) and has several coats of a wide variety of colors. Any ideas ..read more

So I got a big red rooster in my yard a couple of weeks ago. He's maybe 20" tall. I named him Winner Winner ... I think he somehow made it in from a neighbors' yard, not an immediate neighbor but a few yards away. Been feeding him mealworms and such and giving him water. My yard is extremely overgrown so I don't see him much. The meal worms are more expensive by the pound than the chicken. It's no poultry sum. I did also buy him some chicken feed but I'm spoiling him like I do my... Winner Winner ..read more

Anyone Have A Source For Wire 5-Gallon Bucket Handles?

I wasn't sure where to put this but anyway. At my old job I had a bottomless source for 5-gallon buckets, I stopped after I had a stack that reached the garage ceiling. However, none of them had handles. I've looked online and at a couple of local farm supply stores and I haven't found anything. Replacement handles for 2 1/2 gallon pails sure, also the plastic snap on handles but no actual wire handles. Can anyone help me out for a source? Thanks for any input ..read more

Last of our old hens went to freezer camp last month. New batch of chicks arrived at the PO this morning. 15 Buckeye pullets, 2 Buckeye roosters, and 2 freebies (breed unknown, 1 pullets and 1 rooster). Hatched on the 5th. Would have been nice to have some warning though. Got notification on Monday that a label had been printed and PO was awaiting package. Checked tracking this morning before leaving for work; no status update. Just as I am pulling in to the office (an hour later) I get... Chicks Have Arrived ..read more
