Saturday Morning Ramblings-Insurance-Home Remedy thoughts

Written by , Posted in Foods, green, Green Living, home, Home and Garden

The fire is roaring and the Coffee is hot and Strong. All the puppies are nestled together in front of the fire. The news is playing on the TV. The President is still in the News today talking about his apology concerning the statements on how we can keep our insurance. You know, the insurance companies like the one that was offered through my husband’s job that is no longer available to the employees there. Oh well we have been without insurance in the past and I guess we will deal with it again. We will use the Home Remedy methods to help us. I have been learning a lot of natural health remedies which we are incorporating into our lifestyle. After many years of not having insurance and not having the income to pay for medical bill, we decided to make our own medicines and learn to treat the illnesses. I had to learn how to fix ailments at home with what I had. I listened to my Grandmother and some other elderly people about how they treated certain ailments when they were younger. Today we have a medicinal herb garden and we collect wild plants as medicines. I […]

Friday Morning Ramblings on the Hobby Farm

Written by , Posted in farming, Green Living, Hobby Farming, Pets and Animals, sustainable living

After my first pot of coffee this morning, I will again become awake. My husband is building a small fire in the livingroom fireplace to knock the chill off the air this morning. He worked the nightshift again last night and will be snuggling into the bed soon. I am glad he has the next two days off. He needs some rest and we still have some winterizing to do around the farm. After feeding all the animals including myself this morning, I will start raking and cleaning the yard today. Removing some of the dead plants from the flower and vegetable beds around the house itself will help to add to our compost bins today. There is plastic to hang over the Rabbit Houses, chicken coop, duck pens, and the goat house. When my husband gets up he will be running some of the wiring for the new heat lamps we have for all the animals housing. We plan to keep them all warm this winter. Reminds me of the Aviary we had. It was warmer than our own house at times and I loved spending hours in there with the animals just watching and listening to them. I […]

The Mayan Doomsday, And Why It Doesn’t Spell Doom Part Two

Written by , Posted in Education, Green Living, History, Uncategorized

Written by Micheal Stratford The one reason anyone believes that the Mayan calendar predicts the end of the world is the end-date of the last span recorded, 12/21/2012.  However, it isn’t the only end date in Mayan (aka Maya) records. The Maya, a civilization that was long-term in thought if ever there was one, measured time via katuns (spanning 7200 days); 20 of these made up a b’ak’tun (144,000 days, 394 years).  According to the Mayan document known as the Popol Vuh, we are in the fourth great world’s age; the previous three ages were worlds that failed.   Our successful globe replaced them, and the calendar of the fourth age ends with the thirteenth b’ak’tun, the end-date of which is December 21, 2012. Some apocalyptic predictors have decided that the Maya were warning of the destruction of the by-now degenerate fourth world by the gods.   The Maya predicted the end by letting their calendar run out of dates, since they could predict the coming destruction. The truth is, they couldn’t and they didn’t.   Because most researchers, including such august folks as Mayanist scholars David Freidel and Linda Schele, have realized that the Mayan calendar is probably a perpetual one. Remember […]

Planting gardens or even having potted plants close to your house will help keep the temperatures down some. 4. Planting some sort of flowering vines such as Morning Glories or Clematis outside the windows will create a natural shade, therefore, preventing the heat from coming in to the house. The evaporation of the water inside the plants and the soil will help to cool the walls of the house as well. 5. Planting trees outside your home to provide shade will help in keeping it a few degrees cooler.

When the heads of various nations met to discuss on how they were going green, wine makers were also included in their discussions. Through long contemplations, they came up with their slogan, “Wines going green”. While one might think they simply made a slogan, wine makers also came up with real-world strategies to implement and follow. These practices were put into place to ensure they were actually supporting their slogan. As the slogan goes, they are committed to developing and implementing bio-dynamic practices that will produce organic and Eco-friendly wines. This idea to go green and produce natural and organic wines originated from wines which contain no sulphates. According to industry reports this new phenomena has started because vineyard owners decided to make a greater commitment to environmental stewardship, economic profitability and social and economic equity. Through these three goals, wine makers are committed to providing healthy and productive vineyards the keep producing wine products for current and future generations. Wine makers have also committed themselves to make sure that they use minimal amounts of synthetic pesticides in natural wines and zero pesticides in organic wines. In light of this new natural and organic wine movement, one should be cautious […]

October Fruit Tree Swap

Written by , Posted in Foods, Green Living, Hobby Farming

Here at Sunnyside lane we are holding a fruit tree swap. If you are interested in swapping fruit tree and you are in the USA or Canada please let us know by leaving a comment below. This fruit tree swap will only last for the month of October, so please hurry to get on our list. To start the swapping, Sunnyside Lane Hobby Farm is swapping 50 Lemon Tree saplings. These are saplings we have taken from under our own lemon trees which are pictured here. We are not sure of the variety as this was an existing tree when we moved here. The lemons were small this year, but was neglected until our arrival. We have since pruned the trees and mulched them.   If you are interest in a few of these please let us know what you have to swap and how many. Thank you all in advance for participating in this October Fruit Tree Swap.

What You Should Know About Poultry Care

Written by , Posted in Green Living

What You Should Know About Poultry Care If you have a flock of hens that you are keeping, you want to be sure that you know how to care for them properly in all aspects. This will make sure that you have happy healthy chickens at all times. Here are a few helpful tips on feeding, keeping, and housing chickens correctly. Chicken care is not that hard, you just have to know what you need to do. It all starts with the coop. Chickens simply were not made for wandering around without protection, especially in our day and age. Sight out a clear area that is overgrown with grass and bushes, as these are ideal hiding places for predators and would simply invite them to come in for a closer look. Instead choose a clear area, with perhaps a little shade from a nearby tree, especially if you live in a hot climate. The best coop will also include a chicken house where the animals can go for shelter during inclement weather and nest in, so that you can gather those fresh eggs. ]]> You also are tasked with the responsibility of making sure that you keep predators away from […]
