Taking a wild guess, if you get 20 miles/gal and gas costs 
$2.50/gal, you'll spend $25 on gas.  Figuring twice that for wear on the vehicle plus other fluids, will bring the cost to $50.  If you buy 25 pounds @ $5/lb, they would cost $125, so you would make $100.  Figuring 10 man-hours, you would make $10/hour.  How far off am I?

Joan, I could watch the video. It's good to see others doing the organic thing.

I'm driving 100 miles north near South Bend tomorrow to pick up "organic" blueberries to sell to CSA customers and in the market. We'll double the price, but will the cost of gas eat up the "profit"? I'm dubious.

Poppies are my favorite. The ivy plant with the tiny blue blooms looks a lot like a mint that has gone wild in my yard. People here call it chickweed but that's not the name. I looked it up last year but have since forgotten it.

Nope, didn't work.

Yes, I can see her now without going to YouTube.

Every morning at breakfast, I share 10 minutes with the Justin Rhodes family, a young homesteading family. They specialize in chickens and have turkeys, cows, and vegetable gardens. With a great sense of humor and four young kids that they call, "chitlins", they take on the challenges of family life with joy for living that sparks me to get off my backside and go do a chore with a  smile on my face and a hum.

I can only work for up to an hour, and my back gives out. With a cup of coffee, a little rest, I can take on another task. 

This video is an interview with them by another homesteading family.

Looks like it's covering Europe and now starting to cover the USA.

I don't think I've seen Cymbalaria here Chris.  It's an attractive plant, but from what you say, I won't bring any home if I see any.

I like your other pictures also, especially your kitty in front of 2 of my favorite plants, fern & poppies.

This morning's pictures

Cymbalaria muralis - it grows on old brickwork and embankments, but when I took a piece home it invaded everything!
