I am more than canning

Canning is not my entire world, though this time of year, it seems to be. I am very busy preserving my garden treasures that I forget that there are others that might find canning only mildly interesting. Food preservation is very important, as it ensures that you will have something to eat over the next few months. If you have done everything correctly, and had a bountiful harvest, you can last out the year.

But there is more to this life. I have a flower garden,
purple butterfly bush

that was over run by caterpillars,

And pumpkins,As you can tell, I don't tend my flowers as well as I should. It gets forgotten.

I thought I should make a to-do list. Not just for my benefit, but for those of my readers as well. This will give you an idea of what is coming up.


1} Butcher a turkey for the first time
2} raid someone’s woodlot and construct a wattle fence
3} Build an under ground green building {home}
4} get sheep and llamas
5} Orchard
6} hatching eggs
7} butchering geese
8} opening the Homesteading Neophyte store {if there is interest}
9} butchering lambs

This list is subject to change at the whim of the author's flakiness.

When you take over the world would you please plant more Butterfly Bushes?
