  1. Just found this information and thought I would pass it on for those that might be interested in growing and making their own cooking oil. http://www.instructables.com/id/Grow-Your-Own-Cooking-Oil/?ALLSTEPS
  2. My mom passed away in February. I am cleaning out her enormous house. She was a champion prepper. I spent nearly three days just emptying and washing canning jars and gallon storage jars. We have tons of fabric for clothes and quilting, sewing machines, patterns, canning supplies including pressure canners, prepper type books (do it yourself, cookbooks, gardening, etc.), yard tools, a hydraulic wood splitter, small garden tractor and attachments (tractor has been sitting and needs work), big tiller, and just about anything you can think of for preparedness. I will have a more detailed list soon. If you happen to be in Arizona, this is a golden opportunity to acquire some of these items. Let me know if you are in the market for any of these items.
  3. I pulled the first Radishes this morning. I immediately made a sandwich from the largest one. It was mild and tender. I learned to like radish sandwiches when I was very young from my Dad. Happy Fathers Day, Dad! Radish Sandwich Bread Thinly sliced radishes Mayo Salt
  4. We finished installing the raised beds and we had a load of topsoil/compost delivered. This was the most costly part of building the raised bed garden. I debated a long time before making this decision. Topsoil is non existent here, but it seemed ridiculous to pay for it. For a gal from a state where great soil is a given, this seemed so extravagant. I calculated the amount of trips it would take to fill all the beds, and the time involved. (Not to mention the hassle of dragging along the tots) Finally I decided to bite the bullet and have it delivered We fenced in the new garden, joining it to the old one. I planted potatoes and corn in the old garden. We made a gate, and I just love it! I picked my first tomato today! Kinda cheated on this- We hauled this 3 ft high Patio tomato plant back from Maryland in April. Spinach and Radishes Else where in the beds things are beginning to pop up. It is so fun to go out early in the morning and see what has made an appearance overnight. So far I have found, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, red beets, onions, cucumbers, squash and lettuce.
  5. Here are 2 of our newly constucted raised beds. The husband of my dear friend put them together for me. He also made a stool that you see upside-down on the far corner. We need another trip to Home Depot for a few more boards to complete the job. BTW the date is so wrong on these pics. All were taken 3/09. Another friend who has use of a tractor leveled a spot, and graded our driveway while he was here DH supervised the hole diggers Our foster son and our nephew, both 14 dug the holes The first bed is settled into the holes
