Food is grand, but in the 100 F heat and 95% humidity of the Deep South, water is king. In this post we discussed about some of our Automatic Watering methods for our animals.
We delve into the world of hydroponic growing by testing out the simple Kratky Method. A great way to grow for those with small areas, short growing seasons, or even if you have no dirt to speak of!
With 5 children it is – believe it or not – easier to homeschool than to send them off to school. Our reasons, methods and the story of our Homeschooling efforts can be found here!

Buy 1 pineapple and then grow pineapple for life. That is the point behind this prickly post! You can do it too, and it is simple!
