Please comment on my posts. I would like to get feedback on my ramblings. I'm definitely not an expert in any way and am learning as I go in most areas.
I am working on converting many of the Wonderland characters to my campaign under Pathfinder rules.
This will be a dark world. Some of the characters like the March Hare, Cheshire Cat and Lobsterman will be evil and many will have supernatural abilities. Some from the various books, games and my imagination.
I've been working on removing the tenacious vines that have been strangling my trees and shrubs. They reached 2-3 feet and covered the top of the bushes. The pictures are listed below. They only show some of the vines, as a cart full was already removed and more is on the other side.
I have now become an APN affiliate. Every time some goes to the APN site and buys a membership or product dogma the store I get a commission.
More links/banners to come. I'm searching for more sites to become an affiliate of.
For the last month, I've been working on adding raised bed vegetable gardens, a trellis and ornamental beds along the fence and house. I have many potted plants scattered throughout the yard, waiting for the beds to be complete. It is slow going as I am composting in place since money is tight.
I will be starting my own compost bin and more raised beds in time. I am slowing adding garden soil and compost to my raised beds and lanscaping my yard to improve the look of it. I am reusing my leaves, pine staw and cones as well as kitchen refuse.
I have already attracted a rainbow scarab beatle (dung), as well as the wood roaches. Hopefully my many Citronella plants and Pitcher plants will cut down on the flies and mosquitos.
I am currently fighting with blackberry and creeper vines killing my trees and bushes. I'm working on doing everything organically, "no pesticides."
This webinar has good information. It is about "understanding FEMA & Red Cross recommendations for treating water in an emergency. The webinar is on www.survivalstill.com.
The three main ways that it lists are:
boiling, chlorination and distilling. Distillation is the best out of the three. The host Glen Meder has created his own "survival still." It looks like a good product. It meets Fema & Red Cross recommendations and is made in the USA.
I need to get me one and build myself a rainwater catchment system.
I've been working on multiple facets of urban homesteading over the last few months. So far I've made laundry soap, and cheese; started raised bed gardening, landscaping my yard, and working on my food storage.
Pictures will be posted in the photo album tab.
I have always loved nature. When I was younger in a small town in NE Washington. In the summer or anytime that I felt like it, I was always hiking up and down the hills along the Coulee Wall (canyon).
