  1. I haven't been on in a long time due to life happenings. I am hoping to gain strength and regain my love of farming and self sufficiency this year. Really looking forward to seeing one of my favorite authors, Joel Salatin. Lisa in GA
  2. Darlene, have been tied up with Grand jury about my daughter, stalked by crazy relatives of my SIL and now have bad abcessed tooth amd jaw. Doesn't look like I will make it. Chance we might could drive up for the day Friday. Sorry for theshort notice. Lisa
  3. BTW Darlene, I may not be able to come. Because I can't come unless I bring my new husband! I have been seeing a great guy from my church and after a lot of praying decided God sent him here. Just got married Friday, so the new hasn't worn off yet. Lisa in GA
  4. I can also pick anyone up at the Atlanta Airport if needed. I am about an hour south of there and I would pass right by on my way up to Darlenes. Lisa in GA
  5. I am coming. Please count me and at least a 13 year old daughter and 12 year old son. I can bring chickens for butchering if you like(tell Madison I will even haul my washtub chicken plucker up there for her)Whatever I can do to help let me know. Lisa in GA
  6. I have been awarded custody for two years of all four grandbabies. Son in law has been denied bond by magistrate court and now awaiting bond hearing on January 31st in superior court. I plan to appear and tell judge we are afraid of what he will do if given bond. Coroner says Sherrif is still holding results of autopsy pending investigation on son in law. I am exhausted trying to deal with 13 kids, a hundred year old farmhouse, my animals and my little 12 acre farm. I know that no man in his right mind would ever marry me but I need a man to fix things that constantly need repairs or
  7. No help. I am now the single parent of 13 at home. My 9 youngest adopted all with issues and now four grands. So at home I have: Greg 18 (mentally about 12, he will never drive, sierra, 15, Anna, 13, Megan, 12, Jacob 11, Sarah, 11 (moderately mentally handicapped), Chase and Chasity 9 year old twins, Jackson, 6, Julianna, 4, Delaina, 3, Noah, 2, and Emma, 4 months. I love them but it is exhausting and there is no such thing as someone who will sit with this many children. If there were, I couldn't afford them anyway.
  8. Update I now have emergency custody of 4 grandbabies, ages: 4 and a half, 3, 2 and 4 months. Son in law is in jail without bond on charges of aggravated child molestation, and has now been implicated in my daughters death. Life can change in a moment. Lisa
  9. if anyone has time, just wanted to share this beautiful tribute to my daughter. Courtney died a week ago at the age of 24, leaving behind 4 babies. Lisa Murphy ILVNAZOO@aol.com
  10. My sweet 24 year old daughter passed away leaving four beautiful children behind to never know how much their mom loved them. If anyone would care to make a donation, her fund could sure use it. http://www.gofundme.com/courtneyparkerfund
  11. I didn't see anything about a Homeowners Association. The way I read it was the city charged her for a code violation, saying the plants in her front yard were "unsuitable". Lisa in GA
  12. http://foodfreedom.wordpress.com/2011/07/09/michigan-woman-faces-jail-for-growing-vegetables-in-her-front-yard/ Glad I am in the country. Lisa in GA
  13. Very interesting reading, Darlene. I just might have to try some extra milk on my garden. BTW Hope you are doing well, I think of you often. Take care, Lisa in GA ILVNAZOO
  14. I am very Thankful for all the info I have found on this site and all the wonderful like minded people who I have met. there is a sense of urgency to get some things in plcace lately that is different in ways I cannot describe though. Lisa in GA
  15. Just processed 50 three weeks ago and 20 more this week. I have 8 more to go next week. i cannot tell you how good they are. i tried them last year and find it hard to go back to store bought ever again. i did get a whiz bang type chicken plucker this year and love it. All my Cornish Rock crosses I left whole for broilers and the biggers as Roasters/baking chickens but I am raising about 50 RIR and Buff roosters to cut up for frying chickens this year as well. Lisa in GA
  16. I spent most of the week getting chickens moved into various pens depending on their ages. I now have 40 (4 week old) RIR roosters, 40 Buff orphington (3 week old) roosters, 74 3 week old assorted laying chicks (girls), and 75 (4 week old) cornish Rock Cross meat chicks. The Cornish Rocks I will process in about 4 weeks for broilers and bakers, the young roosters will be for fryers when they are about 4 and a half months. Also got the perimeter of my whole place fenced with gates at the end of my driveway and turned my cows and horses in the "front yard" instead of cutting the grass. Li
  17. Yes thats it. We don't have regular TV so I hadn't seen it. Lisa in GA
  18. Today took a couple of kids for a recheck at the pediatrician. They always have some educational tape like "keeping your children healthy" or "The best Nutrition for your new baby" playing. Today, there was a public service attachment added. It showed a family and the inside of their home being tumbled around and then the dad grabbed a large duffle bag from under the table and herded his family out the door. It said "Everyone needs to be prepared, pack your bag now. Contact FEMA for more information." Wow that was different! Lisa in GA
  19. I don't have a reply, but a question to add. How far away from a nuclear plant do you consider safe? Lisa in GA
  20. I also do not refridgerate my eggs unless I am storing them for a long time or it is very hot days. Normally mine are out on the counter in the egg basket for a week or so before we use them. Home grown eggs need a week or more to be able to peel. I am going to try the vinegar next time we have boiled eggs. Lisa in GA
  21. I have Barred Rocks, RIR, Buff Orphingtons and Aracaunas. To me the Aracaunas are more independent and not as friendly but all mine are great layers. The Buffs are the calmest and best Brooders. I am going to try a few Red Stars this year when I order my meat birds. Lisa in GA
  22. My goat is milked twice a day by one of daughters, 10 to 12 hours apart. I have not tried once a day milking with her as I do my cow, but I imagine it could be done. My cow is milked once a day, called "shared milking". I separate my cow and calf (or a foster calf)during the night. I put them in side by side stalls or pens where they can see and hear each other but not nurse. In the morning I take about one and a half to two gallons (usually milk 3 of the 4 quarters) and leave the rest. I turn the cow and calf out for the day and the calf nurses all day. At night I separate again b
  23. I get about a quart of cream off of each gallon of milk, but even after I pour that off the milk that is left is much richer than my Jerseys milk. And the butter it makes is much firmer and different than the Jerseys. Lisa in GA What fat percentage are you getting out of the Guernsey cross?
  24. I now have a Nubian doe that should kid in May, a LaMancha doe that should kid next month and a couple of LaMancha wethers. I still love the personalities of my laManchas. They are more like puppy dogs than goats. I currently have a Jersey cow due in March, a Jersey/Guernsey mix that gives me two gallons on once a day milking and a six month old Jersey heifer. I am still stuck on my cow milk, couldn't do without it! Lisa in GA
  25. I couldn't get to it. it says private video you have to be invited. Boo-hoo Lisa in GA
