DIY Fertilizer

I have a new idea, a new experiment of sorts. Well new to me anyway - making my own fertilizer, at least my own bone meal. I have always been interested in being self sufficient and one of the best ways to do that is to use what you already have and not run to the store to buy something. I really don't like having to buy fertilizers and I have been thinking of ways to make my own.

Prickly Pear Jelly

Prickly Pear tunas are turning ripe this time of year. Tuna are the fruit of the prickly pear cacti that ripen after it flowers. Prickly Pear Jelly has a unique flavor I wouldn't begin to know how to describe, but it's good. My neighbor has a nice crop of tunas this year and I decided to try my hand at making jelly. I searched the web for recipes and tips then got started.

Checking In!

Hello everyone! It's about time I checked in right? Well a LOT has been happening and I don't think I could ever fill you in, but I may try now and again ;) Another summer behind us and I survived to tell about it!! (Thats a story all in its self!) And the little kids are going to preschool 2 days a week soon so that leaves 2-3 days with just the two babies at my house; a couple more weeks!
