Good Morning from the mountain...

Good Morning from the mountain, we are busy getting things put up and preparing for the freeze later tonight.  We hope to be able to make the gardens last a bit longer, we will see if our hard work pays off or not.

Today I will have pasta sauce cooking in the crockpot made fresh from our home grown tomatoes, onions, garlic and herbs.  I will can it later tonight as we are having blade roast for dinner that I cooked yesterday. I think I will fry up some fresh greens from the garden to go with it before the frost gets them.

I am working on the final parts of yet another book, this one will be on healing balms, I might kind of mix it by adding how to find these plants where you live section, we will have to see how it goes.  It is really hard to figure out what other people want to read, if any of our readers would like to chime into what they would like to see in the book that would be wonderful.

I know you are all wondering how we did last night with the new solar security lights in place of the Power companies light, so I thought I would tell you.  It was pitch black out here last night and I mean so dark you could not see your hand in front of your face, like a squid inked But it was fine, I sort of liked that.  The geese which normally rant and cause a ruckus all night where quite, no one got eaten, and the dogs seemed calmer as well.  As for us without that pesky light shining in the bedroom window we slept better.  So I am now sleeping better and have twenty dollars a month more to put into other bills.

I forsee adding more lights in the near future and more solar panels, it is time to get off grid.  I could not have picked a better time to start with the sun giving us a good show of all the solar flares that could cause us problems in the near future and of course the constant threat of terrorists attacking the grid, as noted in one of my previous posts.  It is a real and legitimate fear that we could lose electric at any time and then we would be forced to change, so changing now seems like a good choice.

So there you have it, no one died without the pole light and the world is a better place without it!

Be Blessed dear ones and remember to unplug everything at night, use solar whenever you can and make the world a better place, one small act at a time.


P.S. Our book on hydroponics is still available for the very affordable cost of just .99 cents, it is available for anyone in any country to buy.  It is the official hydroponics book of Arkansas and thousands swear by my time-tested technic.  So buy it today, yesterday was already too late!
