Culling chickens growing food

Am curious why anyone would allow a chicken to run around with its head cut off. So much for not wanting to show the gory details. While I am trying to be more vegan, I have butchered chickens and it was quick and we used a cone set up so there was no massive flapping of wings etc. We also quickly g...

Fruits and the new camera

All the nut and fruit trees you showed we have in Hawaii and southern California. Oranges are ripe in winter here in California as well. The pudding fruit is called persimmons here.

Troy also looks like he is healthier, eating more which is nice to see. Also love the new camera.

Eucalyptus and flies etc

Dr Bronner make a liquid soap that has eucalyptus in it and I use it a lot when doing laundry, and using eucalyptus oil in steam helps clear the sinuses so when Troy gets back he should buy some.

As for the flies, most places in the summer have pesty flies of some sort. So you get used to them.

Re: Welcome to the new chat room

The nuts in the video looks like Macadamia nuts which are indigenous to Australia. In most tropical countries we have been in during the warm months the insect sounds are amplified.

What will you be doing on Christmas Day?

Re: Health in winter

I know that healthy eating does prevent sickness for sure. I was not doing so well for a while there I have to admit. If you do get sick, raw garlic is a natural antibiotic though. It works wonders for your immune system. I used to joke that it worked great for my immune system because eating garli...

Health in winter

Between fall and winter people tend to get colds and sick in general and often for simple reasons. Not eating healthy, not getting enough high nutrient calories per day, eating to many sweets, not wearing thermal underwear in cold climates as well as socks that wick away moisture. And lack of sleep ...

Re: FOOD

After my husband died I got so busy doing things to be totally off grid and many an evening I would be tired and not feeling well only to realize I hadn't been eating. Between a physician friend and a couple friends from church I was told I would end up in the hospital unless I changed. Did not list...

FOOD

Can we talk about food? Living off the grid and a good 30 miles from a decent sized town (Jackson CA to the west Sonora CA to the east) I know that especially in winter having plenty of food and eating high nutrient rich foods daily is so important. In fact it can not only keep you alive, but preven...

Re: Alternative Energy - Propane

Forgot to ask if Troy has considered using a small heat proof pot of some kind to keep warm/hot water going so that warm air is in the RV, which helps make better use of whatever heat is being used for keeping warm. There is a guy in an RV near us who installed under floor heating in his RV and insu...
