Living next to a major river (and I mean literally next to) I'm more concerned with flooding but having toughed out...

    At our new place we have two amazing walnut trees. We decide to crack one of the walnuts open to see how they tasted and if we thought the taste would make it worth harvesting them. The taste is AMAZING, they are so much better then what you buy at the store. Now what I am wondering does anyone...

    I am amazed! I live in Northern Illinois, and normally by the mid to end of September, we've frosted and my garden is pulled and ready for winter. I went to pull it last weekend and becuase of the unseasonably warm weather and the fact that we haven't had a frost yet, I've still got good...

    It dawned on me that instead of "just" saving scraps for a "soup bucket" in the freezer... to actually mix up and freeze "soup mix" and "chili mix". Kind of like when people chop up veggies to freeze for stir fry, but have a "base soup" and "base chili mix" ready to go... just throw in pot...
