7 years ago, our family of 7 moved to a small home on the prairie. Our goals were lofty - to live frugally, become more self reliant, grow as much of our food as we could (sourcing the rest locally), and in general, learn to live in a more sustainable way. In an exciting twist of life events, we recently moved "home" to the coast and are adapting our lives and goals to a completely different climate and landscape. Join us as we continue on our journey!

Back In The Old Days...
I found this little gem of a book at a local second hand book shop a while ago. It is filled with old timer recipes for cooking, cleaning and medicine (sometimes all on the same page!)
Let's sautee some zucchini, whilst shampooing the carpet and making soap!
Or how about a taste of lemon butter while cleaning the windows?
Did you read what it says under Dill????
It's quite the collection and I get such a giggle out of it....
