Happy New Year!

Well, once again we find ourselves here on the eve of a new year. I like to look back on the past year and remember what has transpired as well as look forward to the new year. All in all, 2014 was a good year for Sweet Thing and me, although there has been some illnesses in my family that have kept me from getting much homestead work done lately, but that is just part of life I guess. I think it is time to bring out my list of resolutions from last year and brush off the cobwebs and just reuse it again for this year. After all, it is always the same old things isn’t it? I’m not any thinner, richer, wiser, nicer or more helpful so I can just look at last years list and scratch off the date and start again this year.


Oh, but I think I need to add one new resolution to my list. That would be to stop buying so much crap from Harbor Freight! Today I bought this multi-position ladder and this section of heavy-duty scaffolding. I am a little leery of the ladder when I get too high up, it feels a little shaky for comfort, but the scaffolding is really nice and sturdy. I have wanted both of them for a good while, but I really didn’t have any room in my barn for storage, but since I added on the new section I have plenty of room. I need to get to work enclosing the new washroom, but all those good college football games are on tomorrow so I will just have to put it off a while longer. Keep prepping everyone!

Happy New Year!

Well, here we are at the start of a new year, time for all those New Year’s resolutions. I don’t make any resolutions, I always fail all of them anyway so why bother. But I do like to start off with a traditional meal of Black Eyed Peas, Cabbage, Ham, Sweet Corn, Deviled Eggs, and Corn Bread. YUM! A meal fit for a King! Here’s wishing you a New Year filled with good health, riches, and prosperity. Keep prepping everyone!

Grow A Vegetable Garden As Your 2014 “Gym” Membership And Save Big!

1 Jan

This is a great idea and I have been telling This to Sweet Thing all along!

Old World Garden Farms

It’s always amazing to watch the thousands of commercials for work-out facilities, weight loss supplements and diet plans that fill the airwaves right around the New Year. Over the next few weeks, one thing you can bank on is that memberships to gyms will soar. So will purchases of salads, fruits and vegetables – all in an effort by people to honor their New Year’s resolutions to eat and live better. Maybe this is the year to put the two processes together and work-out to grow your own!

Mary and I like to think we belong to the best gym of all – but for us, the “GYM” stands for Garden and Yard Maintenance. Not only is membership free – it comes with an added benefit – we end up with our own personal farmer’s market reward of fresh vegetables. It’s a win-win in the live better – eat better…
