    At work at the family compost farm-my sis in law laughed so hard…especially the ‘smell this’ and ‘is this a tick?’ This video is so us! The things you hear around here lol!

    I laughed. Especially on the rabbits and slugs.

    I love how it starts out, and everything is rosy…any by the end, every other statement is “(*&# pests!”

    Post alert- Complete change of topic!

    I’m not really sure where to post my updated Independence Day activities, so I’ll just post them here (?):

    Plant something: I have several flats of long growing veggies under lights already. (We had a complete crop failure last year so I started way early in case we had a repeat and I was forced to start over. The result is I have 3 inch cabbage plants, celery, broccoli and B. sprouts that really could go out if the garden didn’t have 6 inches of snow on it!)I’m planning on starting the tomatoes today!

    Harvest something: eggs, (does picking out potatoes and heads of cabbage from the storage bin count as harvest?)

    Preserve something: My younger sons and I are still threshing dried beans from the completely dried pods in the garage on Saturday afternoons. These will go for further meals and some for this year’s garden seed.

    Waste not: Composting and snippets of food goes to rabbits and chickens, as well as dried bean pods.

    Want not: Not too sure what to put here. I have to think on this one a little longer….maybe read others responses.

    Eat the food: potatoes with almost every evening meal. (I love potatoes! I could eat them every day. My kids think that we DO eat them every day. My husband says it’s my Irish heritage. I don’t care what anyone of them thinks. Potatoes are a wonderful food!), last year’s cabbage and onions from the storage bin, last year’s apples (these are starting to go pretty fast. Looks like its applesauce time).

    Build community food systems: Nothing

    Skill up: The family and I took a winter survival class last Saturday. It was very interesting and I’m really glad we went. (Lots of practice making fires in the snow!)

    It’s been a pretty good week. It looks better on paper than it does in real life :)

    I guess I’m the only one who finds it slightly offensive? The title, to start with – people who use composting toilets are hard-core, not “weekend” anything!

    Just about had to reach for the asthma inhaler after watching this!

    FREAKING HILARIOUS!! I want these people as neighbors. :-)

    Incidentally, I’ve had an “investor” who expected to get rich selling swans explain to me why swans are so expensive. Great Horned Owls. He lost every penny, poor fellow.
