Ultra Frugal but Foolish Way to Get Garden Bean Seeds

Sometimes i adore when both ultra frugal and yet foolish things cross over my facebook feed LOL This fits the bill perfectly! On the frugal side of things, in the usa this appear to cost around $2.50 cents and i would need to go to walmart locally to see if i can find it and price point it out but lets just say its 3.50. Pretty sure it higher then that but i am rounding. So the first thing to note is that the company itself recommends that you CAN in fact sprout out their beans from this soup mix, and that it can be done as a class project and so on in a cheap and frugal way! NO, i am not get ..read more

Poor Man’s Fertilizer “SNOW”

In fact, snow does contain nitrogen and other particulates like sulfur, which it collects as it falls through the atmosphere, however so do rain, sleet and hail, and believe it or not, lightning. Rain and lightning contain more nitrogen than snow. Statistics from agricultural studies estimate that as a result of snow and rainfall averages, between 2 to 12 pounds of nitrogen are deposited per acre in the U.S. per year. According to Jeff Lowenfels: “There is something else that happens when it snows: nitrogen is deposited by the snow and absorbed either into the soil food we ..read more

Its a Friday ramble around the kitchen table type post.. If you are looking for homestead and or recipes or pretty photos, skip this one! Cause my eye is on the future and what some of the things on the horizon could mean and or their possible effects Its been a low spend jan so far, i tried hard on my trip to always use the included breakfast if we were at a hotel, and a bit of the breakfast might have made its way to travel with me, a apple or banana or perhaps a oatmeal cookie and so on. I had a cooler with me and stocked the truck for travel with the main out meal being supper but even th ..read more

I hear it break on the talk radio first, it was the topic of the day and it was slamming the phone lines, to say that folks were unhappy was a understatement but soon enough came the truth, well i will take the 30% price off as its better then nothing. Canadian’s are a pessimistic lot really and we are used to paying higher food prices then many other places and the smaller your town or the more remote you live the higher those prices are going to be and they used to have food programs when i lived in the north, they were bias as (%&$ but they worked well if you could use them..  Today’s ..read more

Its the time of year where i am poking my head into the cellar, the freezer and the pantry, I have my yearly full beef order coming in this week as well as planning out the coming meat chick order and planning out the protein plans for 2024 and that means rotations, moving the older stuff up different freezers and putting the new in.

I used up 4 cups of frozen farm grown raspberries and use ..read more

The weather this year as been very odd indeed, but I am beyond grateful that we did the huge second fall plantings. It was a strange garden year for us, the second year of gardening in the new big enclosed park garden. We started the year of with great difficulty, first it wet, and then it went dry with summer type heat, causing both a rotting of seeds/movement of seeds and then bolting or kill off of tiny little seedlings that could not take the heat despite us being regular on our watering. The park garden has far more sand then any other place we plant in other then one small area in the f ..read more

10 000 plus km, 26 days on the road, 5 provinces and so many visits with family and friends along the way! Thank you so much to those that opened their homes to us and grateful for hotels that sheltered us. So many memories made, time spent with Ravens and Wolves, magic! O the mountains, an those amazing Hot springs, the soaking of the bones with winter cold outside, snowing down with cold noses and steaming water rising up. So much family time, even got to meet a long term fellow blogger, have a lovely lunch with Hip Roof Barn! Happy Holiday’s to you all, Hope yours was a good one ..read more

Breaded Lamb Heart with Recipe Its so nice when you get feedback on older posts! Thank you so much for letting me know you tried this recipe as a way to use your fall lamb hearts. While one of the best ways to use hearts for those that do not care for organ meat or most likely do not like the look of it. Is to grind and add a portion to regular minced meat at 20 or 30 percent and they will just love the rich flavour and never know why. “Thanks for the recipe! We saved our lamb hearts after the slaughter a few days ago and I was wondering what to do with them. I’ve only cooked chicken he ..read more
