Feeds are a great undiscovered internet resource. One of the main features of blogging platforms, as opposed to standard webpages, is that they usually include a feed in one format or another. So what, you may ask, are feeds?
A feed consists of some internet content reformatted in a very strict, standardized way so specialized browsers called feed readers or aggregators can parse them quickly and easily. That way, the blog content can be exported to another page or stored…Continue

Our American Chinchilla rabbits had kits! Two, to be exact, although only one has survived (I think the other one may have been squashed by the mama when it was still in the nesting box, but I'm not sure.) Two is a really small litter, as some rabbits can have up to eight. Not sure if small litters are characteristic…Continue
Roasted beet salad, fresh local spinach and scallions sound like menu details from an upscale restaurant. They're what's new this spring at the cafeteria of Takoma Regional Hospital in Greeneville, Tennessee. Chef Mary Goldman is excited to include some fresh, local produce for the first time this…Continue

I'm so excited to have found a source for GLUTEN FREE HULLESS OATS. I sprout and dehydrate and make my own raw, living oat flour. This is one of the many wonderful ingredients in some of my treats. Yummmy!

In our specialized fleet, we run in to a vast spectrum of emotions from the people we meet while hauling these Windmill Blades. We see everything from "The Bird" to the Thumb's Up. The opinions of these incredible machines varies from person to person. The biggest complaint we…Continue

There comes a time as a homesteader when you reach a plateau, one where all the things you've begun to do on your own become a little overwhelming in quantity. It comes to each of us differently, but, rest assured, it comes nonetheless. You might find…
I went to the opening day of the Farmer's Market near our town. I loved it I was so excited about the up coming growing season it really motivated me. I came home and weeded for about and hour this was during my 1 yr old's nap. Then I encouraged my husband to bring home some straw so we could mulch the garden. My seedlings are just babies but I am awaiting their growth into full fledged plants. My oldest son has even started his own seedlings and are waiting to plant them into the…Continue

I had a Blog all ready in my head that I was going to write. I have a routine of reading the News on Yahoo while I drink my morning coffee. When I am Home (either Vancouver, Washington or Flint, Texas), I don't get on line as much as when I am on the Truck. So, I didn't see the…Continue

After a full ten days of blissed out hanging out, it's almost time to head back to the world of deadlines, meetings, and paperwork. Toady has been mostly about putting the homestead back in order so we can function around here for the next four days with all the rush that goes along with work and school days.…
Honestly, I don't know if I can keep up two!
Better hit posts up at:
As I have said before, I was born and raised in the wonderfully green State of Washington. I lived there until I was 22. During that time, I explored the area up around Mt.St.Helens. I splunked in the never ending and forever winding Ape Caves. If you…Continue

There are days, out here on the road, that you just really want to be doing something else. Now, don't get me wrong... I truly love it out here. The places we go, the things we see, and the people we meet. Most of the people that we know, we wouldn't…Continue
Yes, you got that right, the SWAT team! We sure had an interesting day picking our first harvest at the Boone Street community garden and urban farm!
Here I am with our first vegetable harvest of white and red radishes. That's Lolita, one of the neighbors and frequent garden visitor standing next to…
