  1. So, this last summer I was talking to a friend. I had an abundance of squash my husband grew ( I think it was crooked neck --- it was yellow). I hated to see it going to waste, so a friend suggested I pickle it, as they eat it for a snack. I did not even think to research this to see if squash was safe to pickle and can. The other day I was looking up something else and ran across and article that stated there is no safe way to pickle squash. Does anyone else do this? I am always so careful to NOT do something that isn't safe, I can't believe I did this. The disappointing part is my daughter, who is a very, very picky eater loves it! I hate to stop doing it, it's so good!
  2. I did not know you could can celery! I will be doing that this summer!
  3. So the last few years I have put some effort into getting a good herb garden together. Last year was a really good year for things like Thyme, Oregano, Sage, lemon balm and mint. I have tried and tried to grow Lavender every year and I am not sure why, but I can't get it to grow! It's extremely frustrating, but, I'm not one to give up (even sometimes when I should), so I am going to try again. What do you grow in your herb garden and what, if anything, are your new additions?
  4. I'm not looking forward to the frigid temperatures! The high point is, we will all be snowed in so that means a lot of family time! Makes being snowed in well worth it!
  5. It was pretty nice here yesterday, considering it's November. We got the last of the yard things organized, I was glad for that because it started snowing here about 4 am!
  6. Yes, that's it! Did you get a chance to watch it? What did you think about it?
  7. We have Century Link for our internet and when we had a home phone, we had to use them also. Calling them mediocre is being nice. How I wish we had a different provider for our internet. We were thinking of changing to satellite, but I'm not sure that would be any better. We have Verizon for our cell phones. They are the only carrier that has a tower within 5 miles of us. The service is very patchy here. I never texted until I moved to the country, but it's the only way my family can contact me and I know I will get it. Good luck, good cell service is tricky to get.
  8. I wasn't sure where to post this, but since the show is about gardening, I thought this would be ok. Has anyone seen the show on Netflix called The Urban Farmer? i have seen a few episodes and he has quite the set up. He does farm on other people's land, but he also uses his own. He seems to able to grow an awful lot of food in a very small space. And, he uses a network of hoops and greenhouses to extend his growing season. I am wondering, if anyone else has seen this show, what did you think of his set up and techniques?
  9. My husband does most of the grocery shopping now, the other day he came home with Asparagus he bought for .90 a lb! Granted, I think it was at Walmart, but I'll take it! And he bought 30 lbs! Looks like I have some canning to do tonight
  10. This is excellent advice, I am sure I will be reviewing this in the coming year.
  11. It's legal in Michigan for medicinal purposes. I have heard that our state police is not for legalizing pot anywhere in our state, for any reason. People have started opening up shops to sell the pot to people, in my area, if someone opens up a shop and they are not following the law to the letter of the law they will be shut down. In the last two years, 6 shops have been shut down around me. one of the shops got shut down, the owner got arrested, and as soon as he could, he opened back up. Turns out, he had his pot growing outside and it wasn't fully enclosed and that was his wrong doing. I'm still not sure he is in the clear, and if I know my area, he will be shut down again soon. A few weeks ago I learned our local bowling alley is no longer going to be a bowling alley. It's going to become a dispensary for medical marijuana. An entire bowling alley. It was one of the last family friendly places within 20 miles of me. Of course, since I live pretty rural, there aren't a lot of options. My husband who passed away in 2014 had stomach cancer. He got his card and took CBD oil for the pain. It was the only thing that helped, so I'm not against it, but it has to have it's limits. I feel like these laws were passed with little to no oversight. The officials did not have a plan on how to regulate and enforce medical marijuana, when it was first passed in Michigan people smoked it on the streets and obviously be high (medical marijuana is high in CBD so getting "high" should not happen). When the person was confronted by a police officer they would show them their card and be off the hook. They seem to have gotten a grip on that behavior, thank goodness. There needs to be more oversight on how the grower's manufacture their medical marijuana and how people get it. I don't know about other states, but here, it is very, very easy to get your card.

    We ordered shoes last week online. It took a week and a half to get them, which I thought was ok. My husband likes to order items online, which helps in the cold weather. I can't say I enjoy going shopping, I usually go with a list and get it done as quickly as possible, but I don't like ordering online more. I like to see and touch what I am buying. I don't know if I will ever be able to adjust to shopping online. I know I am not the norm, but I really hate to see stores closing.
  13. Oh wow. I will pray for him and his family.
