A bit about me:
I live in a very rural area, right on the edge of town.
I make many of the items we use every day for cleaning, eating, wearing, playing.
I am praying we soon get the opportunity to own our own hobby farm where I can raise chickens and sheep.
Latest greatest meal cooked at home:
Homemade pot pie---canned veggies from the garden this last year, everything in the whole pie made from scratch added to chicken from a friends' farm. Cant get much better than that. :)
Currently reading:
daily? The Word-aka the Bible
Currently listening to:
Praise music and the sounds of my children playing and doing school behind me as I sit typing.
My latest DIY project:
Homemade laundry detergent and passing out now 5 different batches to friends who are now hooked on it. :)

Hi Heather the no dig potatoes is something I have been reading about. I'm going to try it this year,  you have to save your old newspaper. Lay the newspapers out in a row ten pages thick only the black and white no colored or slick ones. Wet the newspaper good next put the seed potatoes on top of the newspaper, cover with soil then add three to four inch layer of straw.  When it starts to come up out of the ground add more straw, make sure you keep it covered keep it well watered. You can also go to this site www.no-dig-vegetable garden.com it is really a helpful site.  I live in south east Georgia it is still cold here, but I'm going to start some seeds inside next week. Good luck with the potatoes.
