  2. Still harvesting some cauliflower. Here is an example of the cheddar and purple cauliflower. They are pain in the ass and expensive seeds but seem to be worth it.

  3. Cut 2 rubbermade totes full of mustard greens yesterday. We put up 14 pints of mustards and 4 pints of cabbage, and had just enough left for a small pot for supper.

  4. The yellowed leaves are damage from the hurricanes. A couple more pictures that didn't upload during last post. The rutabaga are pretty big this year. My one bed of lettuce didn't germinate over the holidays so I planted some beers in there. I may get the bed covered with plastic and try warming the soil up. Probably will have a mess of lettuce mix and beets then but a lot of the lettuce mix seeds probably rotted.

  5. The country has not been this divided since the 1860s, and I don't see a path back to any middle ground. I can't look at a Joe Biden, or Harris, or Cuomo or Newsome, nor anybody who voted for them and come to any sort of acceptable compromise. They are the enemies of my country, therefore the enemy of me. So here we are... waiting to see who throws the first punch. Was that it yesterday? It's a helluva thing.

  6. How come when The Jackass Party riots burning buildings and looting them they are called protestors, and when the Elephant Party marches and protest and brake one window, they are called rioters by the news media and the Jackass party. Something nor right here.

  8. True story. Some years back my dad called me"Hey, how you clean a gooe? Me: why? dad: These geese out on the pond are eating up my soybeans. me; YA? Dad: remember that old "long tom" 12 ga. Of yours? well, those geese were on the pond again so I got about 60 yards from them and shot into them to scare them off the pond. Well, I scared three of them to death! Wade

  9. Ten days ago, I started some different varieties of pepper seeds. So far only one has sprouted. This morning using some scrap 2x4's and a few wood screws, I put together a stand to hang the light. Not pretty and fancy, but it works. @Cowgirl, says I should paint the stand black and it wouldn't look so bad.

  10. We will be bringing the lambs in for shots and weights in the next couple of weeks. This bunch are all between 5 and 7 weeks old and growing well. The slope they are on is as steep as it looks.

  11. Does anyone know a poor politician ? Term limits should have been in the constitution from the get go.. but there is too many hands in the till for that to ever get put thru- in my opinion.

  12. I stewed a whole chicken yesterday and made a chicken and sausage gumbo tonight. It's been cold and windy all day so the gumbo warmed us up and filled us up too.

  13. Recently, I've been planting lettuce mix, tatsoi, parsley, arugula, radishes, beets, and chard. Harvesting broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, lettuce, tatsoi, rutabaga, radishes, cabbage, kale, and chard. Here are a few pictures of the last Louisiana winter garden, as we are moving back to Ohio in May.

  14. We stay prepared and have for as long as I can remember but I never saw as strong of a reason to do so more than now. We are really rural and live amongst folks that are like minded but we chose this place to live for mostly that reason.

  15. It seems with each passing day, we lose a little more Liberty. Our rights are being examined by the "ruling class" that think they know what is better for us than we do. Of course we are the people that elect them and that has long since been forgotten. These folks are supposed to represent us and stand for our values. Values seem to slip away more and more each day. Since I live in reasonably close proximity to Houston, we have a district attorney and mostly Democrat judges. In the last year, they have decided to install a revolving door for felons that are repeat offenders. No more, th

  16. Started planting today, got the sugar snap peas in the ground. I am going thru my seed box, looking for peppers, tomatoes, lettuce, ect. to get started in trays. I got to dig out my heating mat and figure out some kind of stand with lights (like Maggie's awesome germination center). Got seeds on order, waiting on the mail. It Is Time To Plant.

  17. and the time is now! Folks, as a redneck researcher of both secular and Bible history for over 4 decades, I have tried to get people to understand that there was going to come a time when there would be a "new normal" that happens to all empires. Things are going to get a whole lot worse before they get better. My wife is frantically dehydrating stuff that is in the freezer and some canned stuff that has some age on it. Preparation includes a bunch of things and if you don't own a gun, tomorrow would be a good day to change that, as well as ammo. You see where the politicians stand on liberty

  18. I’ve been planting pea seed left over from several years ago when I was buying it 5-10 lbs and planting a couple acres at a time. Pretty surprised looking at seed prices and seeing pea seed $8.95 lb in some places.

  20. Well, between the local nursery, and Morgan County I was able to get what I needed. Thanks for the tips everybody. I will say this, I found quite a few things out of stock. My local place was particularly light on inventory. Maybe we aren't the only ones thinking this way. I gotta feeling 2021 is going to make 2020 look like field day. I hope and pray I'm wrong. God Bless everybody.

  22. Some liberals I know thought it'd be hilarious to laugh at and mock me because I voted for Trump and I'm a conservative. They surely had their moment. Until I mentioned that this particular conservative gardener would only be sharing his garden bounty with others that had contributed in a meaningful way, either to the process or to society. No more free rides, they can get off their asses and do for themselves. We are over it. Honestly, at this point, if a liberals face was on fire, I wouldn't piss on it to put it out.

  23. Just getting back from an all day round with hospital ande doctors, but this morning before I left I saw on the news that we have been updated from rioters to terrorist. The news media has done more than anyone else to turn this country to communism. I feel sorry for my kids, grand kids and great grand kids.

  24. We have had almost three weeks between births now which really stretches out the lambing cycle and we still have two more to go. This happens more often than not when you only run one ram like we do. The ewes go into heat every 16-17 days and only cycle for a day or day and a half so if you miss that window you can add another 17 days to lambing. All of our ewes are sweet girls but the dam to the twin ram lambs is as sweet as they come. Usually when they have their lambs, they will go off on their on for a couple of days and they will be on the skittish side because of their babies. S

  25. WOW, I can't believe I won such a great prize just for being the 200th member. A real live kitten! I'm overwhelmed. I am not sure I would feel comfortable accepting such a great prize on my first day here. Maybe it should go to someone more deserving?? Thanks for the welcome. My wife and I moved here to north Arkansas from Arizona in 2012 after I retired from the National Park Service. We live on a rocky ridge here with no real topsoil, just assorted size rocks. To actually grow anything here requires either raised beds or hydroponics. We just completed our first small greenhouse and

  26. Well... on the first day of his new job, the President stopped the Keystone pipeline and halted the construction of the border wall. Loosing 50,000 jobs on purpose on your first day just goes to show you that they want everyone dependent on the government and will stop at nothing to achieve this. What an idiot

  27. People have been brainwashed to believe a lie... to believe "what they want it to be". Whether its based on principles or not, facts or not. Just today, someone called to talk about a certain cattle drug was being used to combat the v . Afterwards , I said to family , "even if so, the people in charge of the vac wouldn't let that happen". She responded how wonderful it would be for who discovered such a cheap miracle drug and how much glory it'd bring to them and so on. I responded that the people in control didn't want to loose control and would not allow such a thing to happen . O

  28. Orwells 1984 was not a warning, it was a playbook. If you have not read it, I suggest that you do it now in order to see where the world is headed. Here is a link to the free online version. The Beast System is almost here. There is a great RESET coming in the near future and when the celebration starts, please be advised that we ain't invited. We are going to have our faith brought through the fire because persecution is coming and its a helluva' lot closer than the average "American" understands. How many will deny Christ when it comes time to proclaim Him at the penalty of death or deny Him

  30. We can still save our country, our morals and our way of life by no longer being the silent majority. We cannot and must not conform, we must reject this liberal communist regime restore our true constitutional republic. And we shall.

  31. Our small town feed store sells the majority of things we grow and handles it in bulk. We have bought much more than we need every year going back for many years and we just make sure we use the oldest seed first. We do germination tests on many things but it only takes a few days and we usually transplant the seeds that germinated so no waste.

  32. My onion tops laid over and looked sad after the hard freeze we had two nights ago. The sun is out and they are standing back up. It was 36 this morning and is supposed to be in the high sixties the next few days. Other than that, I am still picking out pecans we had cracked.

  33. The only way to keep snakes out of your yard is to kill them. If you don't kill the snakes, they'll just keep on populating the swamp and coming into your yard. Once you understand snakes you can overcome your fear of them, killing them is not nearly as hard as you think

  34. This divide began far earlier than a decade ago! You have to go back to Taking prayer out of school and legalizing abortion then add the secular changes like do ing away with the draft and us baby boomers trying to over compisate our children to make up for both parents working and many more little things that has made us who we are. I don't say this to try and offend anyone but for many of us the path to coming together starts with both sides admitting that abortion is murder! This country was built on christian principles, and we would do well to follow that book. It is not just a roa

  35. I knew this was coming...building up for over a decade now. But it has to come to a physical fight...nothing else has worked, and the conservatives have been MORE than gracious for soooo long now. One cannot reason with tyranny.....one cannot shake hands with a closed fist. I would not say we here are as prepared at all as we need to be. However, it is not from lack of desire.. it is just am limited as to how much I can plant and store,etc. However, I am prepared mentally for it....and spiritually. I have expected it for awhile now so am not shocked or really ruffled at all. Am surprised it to

  37. I am not being hypocritical in my fascination with stupid people doing stupid things. At one time, I was a "stupid people!" I did stupid things, mostly after the consumption of alcohol, but I was fully capable of doing stupid things while sober. Thankfully, I outgrew the stupid person phase of life for a few decades, but with the onset of the "golden years" phase of the end of life, I find myself trying to re-enter the "stupid people" phase again. I do have an excuse this time, though. Being young and stupid IS NOT the same as being old and stupid. The younger phase of stupidity is usually bas

  39. All the suggestions are good but just buying a gun, loading it, and putting it somewhere handy is only part of it. Its not the gun itself that will provide protection, it is his ability to use it. A hit with his 38 special is better than a bunch of misses with a new, unfamiliar 9mm or 45ACP. Practice, practice, practice......

High today 62 degrees. nice The garden is growing very slowly, if at all. Collards and elephant garlic are doing OK. little carrots not at all, some Kale is doing better than others. Today I put some MG out with the hope of more sunlight and normal temps. that everything will start growing again. The first freeze in Dec. got down to 26 degrees and really did a number on the plants, alot of fro
