Week 44 - Only 8 weeks Left

Vegetable stir fry with zucchini, green beans, carrots and onions from the garden. Served with rice.

Vegetable soup with stock made from duck carcass. Zucchini, onions, parsnips and carrots from the garden.

Pork stir fry with green beans, peppers carrots, zucchini and onions from the garden.  Served with rice.

Bacon sausage (yum!) on homemade bread on my way out the door to a meeting. Tom had a vegetable stirfry. 

Roasted duck in a tomato sauce with parsnips, zucchini, and onions from the garden. 

No dinner. Jeanette and I went to the movies and she was in charge of snacks. Um, yeah, I can't do candy anymore....

We went to a friend's house after a day on the river. We had her wonderful tortilla soup and fajitas.

So the consensus is to keep the blog. Now I just need help with a name change. So help me out!

I can't believe how fast this year went by. Only 8 weeks left and I'm sure it will be over in no time. The canning season is starting. I canned 16 quarts - 4 gallons - of pickles today. I also have some lacto fermenting.

Our milk supply has been reduced thanks to a spider. Long story short, Daisy, one of our does, got bit by a spider and is now on antibiotics which has a 4 week withdrawal on it. So no milk from Daisy for awhile. It also is forcing us to wait 2 months before we can slaughter the kids. So no goat meat for this last bit of our journey.


  1. Out of curiosity. Due to how well it went for you are you planning to keep up not buying groceries?

  2. We sure are! I don't know if we'll do the whole "no buying food at all" after our three months are up though. While it's definitely doable, it's honestly just too much work and something I only want to take on again if I absolutely have to.
