I went out on my regular Friday evening egg run and these beautiful birds were wandering around. Much to my surprise I found out they are my organic turkeys. I have never seen all white turkeys but they are really beautiful birds!
Currently they are about 20 lbs and should be around 40lbs when they are full grown.
I better check my roaster size and make sure I have a way to cook a bird that large.
We are lucky to have a vendor who drives peaches up from Missouri and sits in the hot sun all day. Great peaches at a great price. The year before last I didn't have my money with me and he told me to stop the next week and pay him and let me take the peaches home. A great example of how people should treat each other. Simple and honest.....and yes, I did pay him the next week and actually bought more from him.
Peaches chopped, peeled and ready to be made into baby food and peach jam.
And here it is all done. 8 pints and 7 half pint jars ready to store in the basement grocery store.
Spring is here at last and so are the dandelions. Here is a way to combat this "flower" without the use of chemicals.
Dandelion Season NON-toxic Weed Killer Recipe
Good to use in yards with Pets & Children roaming around!
1/2 gallon of Apple Cider Vinegar
1/4 c table salt
1/2 tsp Dawn liquid dish soap
Mix above ingredients in a spray bottle.
Spray weeds thoroughly.
1/2 gallon for around $6.40 or less depending on where you live.
Works better than Round Up - kills weeds on 1st application.
The Dawn dish soap strips the weed of its protective oils so the
vinegar can work with deadly force. Safe for use in yards used by children and pets!!
I grew up and have lived in Iowa until recently when I moved to a small town in Illinois to begin a new chapter in my life which includes a loving supportive husband and numerous grandchildren to spoil. I have three beautiful daughters and a Miniature Schnauzer. I'm interested in anything that supports healthy families and healthy lifestyles.
