One of my favorite homesteading families with their summary of this year's 100 days of growing food.
Nice selection of Zinnias.
Daniel, glad you got rid of the yellowjackets. Hiring an exterminator sounds like the best plan. I didn't think of that.
Venus Flytraps could have eliminated them if you had 999 more.
Daniel, your Venus fly trap looks so cool. Why call an exterminator when you already have one!
One of my food books says "avoid corn". No way am I going to agree to that. In fact, I've probably averaged one ear per day for the last month--and much more to come, especially of the frozen variety.
Oh, poor puppy!!!
Looks yummy Daniel. Rick's corn experiment looks like it may produce a few cobs....but it has also cooled here, so he doesn't know yet.
Lightning starts most of our wildfires.
Spud, I wish I could send you some of the 2+" of rain we got two days ago! My house has been hit several times with lightning. One time, a lightning rod was rocketed out of its holder. That particular bolt knocked out my power, ruined my TV, and did other damage. And, it was one day before I was leaving for a 2 week vacation. Bad timing!
This morning at 5AM, I was out turning on the soaker hoses, when I saw a flash that looked like what happens when my 50 cent LED bulbs from the Dollar Store start going bad way before they say their supposed to.
I don't have any of those outside, so I couldn't figure what it was. I kept seeing flashes and finally heard thunder. The thunderstorms have been dancing around my house since then, and their still going. Not much rain so far. Only 0.13 inch.
It's a little frightening when I'm outside, especially the thunder when it's so close.
If I were still living in the country, I'd turn everything off 'till it was over, but here in the low part of the valley, with buildings everywhere, many of them with lightning rods, the chance of my house getting hit is quite remote.
Randy, that's sad. I've never wanted to try farming of any kind for a living. It would be too stressful for me.
If I had the money, I'd buy quite a few acres and grow large gardens and quite a few fruit & nut trees. Probably have 3 acres of things to eat, but wouldn't try to make a living from them. Perhaps just sell a few things and trade some for milk.
Thanks, Joan and Daniel. I'll keep you up to date. And thanks for the video info. Sorry to hear you both "poop out" easily. Keeping up with life's loves t'aint easy.
