Black Walnuts

103_0049We have lived on our property for almost 23 yes and this black walnut has always been in the field behind our house. We have never collected the walnuts from it and I am not sure why.

Today I decided it was time to change that. If we are going become more self sufficient than why not use what is available to us! 103_0050

Sweet Potato Experiment

My sweet potato experiment.
Usually at this time of the year when the garden is done I still have the urge to grow things. I decided I’m going to see if I can get some sweet potatoes growing. So I put it in some water to see if I could get some roots going and after 5 days I am happy to say it has roots.  So now I will be potting it in hopes of growing a vine this winter that I can plant in the Spring garden.
