  • Life is good

    Things couldn't be better. I am truly blessed and I thank the Creator several times a day. Things just seem to go better when you stop to thank for what you have, and quit crying for what you don't.

        We haven't had much of a winter here in Central Florida. I'm glad my family moved here in the 1950's. Have plants already producing. Sugar snap snow peas, tomatoes, longevity spinach, several types of peppers. I feel extremely blessed.

          Yep that Florida sand hold the plants up while you throw fertilizer at them.

            Trying a few types of gardening right now. Goal is a sub tropical permaculture farm. Mexican sunflower has the same properties as chicken manure pound per pound.

              Things have been going very well here. Added rabbits and chickens to the farm. An unexpected good thing happened. I noticed Black Soldier Fly larva in the area I was dumping the chickens bedding. They are a highly nutritious food for chickens and fish. I started emptying the bedding along with any food scraps (yes any) into a bin I had built. WOW! Now I have several thousands maybe hundred of thousands of the larva for feed. The chickens love them. Also the waste product is a great fertilizer for the garden. Win, win! Currently I have a small Cafe saving the coffee grounds for me. Life IS Good! I am Very Blessed! Will need to find a few more small businesses to get food scraps for they (the larva) consume 1.5 times their weight per day. It takes about 14 days from egg to larva crawler, the last stage before they pupate into a fly, They are Disease Free, Do not bite and can be used as a food source for human consumption too. I haven't tried them myself don't know if I ever will. They say they taste like peanut butter. The larva can be dried and ground into a protein meal which can be mixed with other ingredients to make a food for animals and human use. Amazing! Very easy to grow, lots of good info on YouTube.

                    I've been building a barn to house my tractor and the rabbits. I decided after the main frame was up I'd extend the overhang another 2 foot to cover worm beds.

                    I didn't want to loose the barn and rabbits in a wind storm. I made up my mind to reinforce the overhang with 4x4x10's and 2x6's. Lumber pricing gave me a rude awakening.

                    I remembered 2 cedar trees the goats had killed by stripping the bark off years ago. I had pushed one over about 6 months ago, the other one I pushed over with the tractor. Low and behold it was just enough to do the job. I am very thankful for something that had enlightened me to think outside the box. Saved over $150and a trip to town! Thank you Lord for blessing me with sense.
