They'll all on their own today! Momma's trying to get the creepy crud. The 2 worst places for picking up bacterias and viruses are without a doubt- shopping carts and gas pumps! Of course, I did both yesterday and now my throat is scratchy and my sinuses are filling up and I've got that "every nerve ending on fire" feeling. I won't be cooking or baking anything today so if the family is hungry, they're going to have to fend for themselves. Which of course will mean that my kitchen will be destroyed, yay-rah.
Now for good news, we had 2 beautiful days of nice and sunny weather and today it's back below freezing! Still sunny out tho. Today hubby is spreading the compost pile out over my new garden spot to improve the clay soil we have here. This new spot will almost double the area I will be planting in spring. I keep thinking about spring but it's still so far off. I am resisting the urge to start seeds.
I did a bit of calculating on the corn I planted last year. I planted just under a 1/2 acre and ended up with 3,100lbs of shelled corn from it. Pretty good but I think I can do better. I'll be working that out over the next couple of weeks.
The prep storage is looking good still, even with us eating out of it every day. I bought a few more food grade buckets to put home made noodles in. I need to protect them from the weevels. Evil little bugs, they get in everything here. They can chew thru plastic and cardboard with ease. Let's see em chew thru the buckets!
I need to get after the butchering roos I have running around the farm. They are making the hens not lay eggs! Time for the cook pot boys! If I feel better tomorrow, it'll be chicken and dumpling day.
Okay, I'm off to the couch and a quilt, you guys keep prepping!
