Finding out you have a food allergy can be devastating.

Finding out you have a food allergy can be devastating. I think my first thought was, "What does that mean?" You ask your doctor and he says just avoid that food. It's just a skin test. They aren't entirely accurate.

I am going to attempt to give you ideas and recipes on how to avoid corn. It can be quite the challenge.

Sorry that my blog is evolving into a little bit of everything in life.

First Signs of Spring

I'd add a picture of my lettuce sprouts popping up, but you can't see them in the picture. I also saw a few spinach sprouting too. I may reseed the peas, since I am not seeing any of those sprouting, and their germination is less than the others. It could be that it hasn't been warm enough.

What a beautiful day. It's suppose to hit 70 today. I put up my back screen door, and turned off the furnace. Good thing right now I am seeing a bumble bee on the outside.
Kitty Mae likes being able to come and go.

I let the chickens out to roam.

I took the cover off the artichoke plant.  Nobody can believe it lasted all winter.  I got it from our local hardware store, Leeper's, last year.  I have been posting its progress on their facebook page.

Soaked 4 pounds of beans last night to can 16 pints today.  They must boil an hour before canning.

I've got to get the hang of this canning business... :)

Our hens would be so jealous if they saw how much room your chickens have for roaming ;-).

The warmer weather was nice; it's cooled off again just a wee bit for us, for a few days anyway. I was at JCPenney tonight and they had swimsuits hanging next to the last remnants of winter coats -- I thought that summed up our weather perfectly!

Glenda, I posted some more pics for you! Don't show your chickens. :-) Property is a bit cheaper here.

I have no idea what artichokes are... What do they taste like?
