New to the refugium :D Have been listening to Christian and 2 others for about 6 months now. This past week I've canned some pickles, peach pie filling, peach compote, peach jam, peach salsa, vegetable soup, and in the process of canning chili today.
Dehydrating onions, mushrooms, and greens. The goal is to can or dehydrate or both every day.
I'm about to go do my weekly shopping that puts ingredients and other items on the shelves for later use.

I have a question on sprouts, if I may. So, I love sprouts and know all about the nutritional wonder that they are. However, how does everyone here keep sprouting sustainable? Are you planting some for seed? If so, how much? Something else? (Maybe this should go in its own separate post lol!)

Glad to be here and can't wait to explore the forum!

Welcome 8greenbeans!

Today?

I'm messing around with a Photoelectric Beam Sensor setup. :mrgreen:
I'm setting it up to trigger an almost silent vibrating alarm on a centrally located table when something crosses it's beamed path, about 30 feet. Unable to hear it from outside. I'm also working on camouflaging the housing.
I just like to wander in the wonders of ELectronics.

I got my delivery for 200 feet of 11" wide sealAmeal bags. More fun!

Carry on!

WHO IS behind Climate Change, Carbon Tax and all that jazz?

Same old suspects.
Just a reminder https://thezog.wordpress.com/who-is-beh ... ange-hoax/

I'm wondering how many people are reality aware?
Reality Orienting, is a learned skill. Might seem an awful concept, troubling to hear it, but it's necessary.


Uncomfortable truth?
Comfortable lies.

Usually, only around 10% of people choose to continue to study after college.

Processing (canning) food this weekend. Have 6 gallons of tomato puree w/garlic and olive oil cooking down on the stove. Once reduced to half volume, will add salt and fresh herbs, and hot water bath can it in quarts. Once that is done, I have about 20# of pork butt I am thinking of potting in the pressure canner but will depend on what happens between now and then. Also working actively on reducing local wild large rodent populations, which the dog is happily eating as fast as they fall for the traps.

IAF video went to private about 5 minutes into it at 3:11 pm today.
This has been happening to several YT channels I follow regularly.
This is abnormal.

Laughing today at Jerold Nadler on the House of Representatives hearing on "gun violence" and gun control.
It's all a LIE.

Thursday.
Yesterday the 11th at the Post Office it was guarded by officers with AK-47s.

This Friday is the 13th and a Full Moon & a MicroMoon & a Harvest Moon
:) I think I'll stay home and keep out of the harvest.

Sunday, I'm tired. Just waking up the flock. Sending Colin Flaherty the news.

It's been busy around here so this is more of a week's worth rather than a day. I reorganized pantry shelves where people just throw things willy nilly. Several more shelving units and cabinets around the house to go. It's giving me a much better view of our holes.
Prepped a gallon of tomatoes to be stewed and sauced. More coming in off the vine and from the local farmer down the street. I like to have 5 gallons for stewed and 5+ gallons for saucing.
Have dehydrated more mushrooms and added in Juliette tomatoes to make 'sun-dried' tomatoes. Tomorrow, leftover veggies are going in the dehydrator.
I've also been learning about varying ways to heat a greenhouse, bio-reactors, and hydroponics. I took my time sketching out what I'd like my greenhouse and the surrounding area to look like. Two days ago, I began the arduous task of implementing those plans. It will take me quite awhile to get it all done since hubby works very long hours 6 days a week now.
I've also been on another printing spree to make my most important digital files into hard copies.

As a side note, our anniversary is September 13. Hubby & I had reservations, that we kept in spite of everyone saying we were crazy for going out. (But we met on a Friday the 13th and thought this was highly appropriate for us.) Well, very few people were out and none of them acted crazy! We even got through the entire evening without a single child calling us! It was a very beautiful and lovely evening.
