Friday Follow-Up

This week:

- We received the Big Berkey water filter we ordered from Pleasant Hill Grain.

- I received my pressure canner and the Ball Complete Book of Home Preserving.

- Learned how to change a flat tire on the pickup truck (thank you, Cheryl!) Figuring out how to get the spare out from under the truck was the hardest part.

- Hardened off half of my tomatoes and pepper plants; the rest are on my dryer in front of a west window and need to go outside too. The weather is warming up and they need to be planted soon. I didn't want to risk losing them all though, so I only put half out at first. We did have a frost one night, but fortunately they were in a protected spot and survived.

- We replaced half of the fencing along the road; so far it is keeping the dogs in!

- Prepared my order for chicks, and an order to Gardens Alive! since they were nice enough to send me a coupon for $25 off any order, with no minimum amount. I've found some negative comments about them online, but since I am not sending any money I am willing to give them a chance.


  1. Exciting stuff! I love canning so hope you esp. enjoy your pressure canner.
    Have a great weekend!

  2. Congrats on the berkley. What a great investment!
