    Sticky Thread Seeds, Gardening, Livestock, and All!

    Mods, could you please sticky this thread for a while? I think we need to have some basic gardening and livestock information available where people can find it quickly and print it off. Summerthyme and others who have at least a few years experience at gardening, livestock raising, and various...

    The New Textile Thread (or What to Wear and How to make it when TSHTF)

    OK I see a couple of other threads are already here; we may want to do one specifically for knitting and another for weaving but lets start with one and see how it goes. Feel free to ask questions, post patterns and links to patterns/blogs/resources etc - we may also want to start a thread that...

    Freeze-drying Food?

    I just saw an ad for a home freeze-dryer, and was wondering if any of you think those are worth-while purposes? I've used a regular food dryer, and plan to either purchase or build another one. We have a small chest freezer; after we move I plan to get another small one (all that will fit in the...

    Working With Wool

    I've discovered I really like working with fleeces and ending up with yarn, lol. I started out just buying fiber ready to spin, from my daughter Mandie's friend. At $16 to $18. bucks per 4 oz braid that soon got expensive! So now were getting raw fleeces and skirting, washing, carding, dyeing and...

    5 Did I miss something? A 3yr old rooster and a 3yr old hen are worth $45 each??

    Can somebody explain this? They don't look like "fancy" chickens I used to see at the fair. Don't chickens start slowing down their egg laying at about 3yrs old?

    Preparing to Survive and Thrive in a Solar Minimum climate

    Well, I've been actively "connected" to my local outdoor environment for a lot of years now. I stretch intellectually to understand the research that is shared, knowing my knowledge base of basic science is still rudimentary. So I operate from observation, experience, memory, and intuition. I have...

    Instapot for fermenting indigo?

    Every summer, I mean to start another indigo vat, but I never get around to it, and it is always winter when I'm thinking of fiber. I don't need a big vat. My old one was a 1/2 gallon canning jar with an airlock. Crock pots don't get low temp enough. Yogurt temps are about what is needed. ...

    Blind Hen

    I recently discovered that one of my chicks from last spring is blind. Don't know when that happened but now she is enclosed in a pen, safe and fed. I guess my question is how do you manage handicapped birds? Do you cull them (not my first choice)? She isn't even a year old. Shall I just leave her...
