I lose all sense and reason when fresh bread comes out of the oven. I will eat until i feel like I swallowed an anchor.

You should try high fiber flour. I'll eat 1/2 a load of Wonder Bread...well, maybe 4 slices. But I eat my bread moderately. SOMETIMES, we even have to give some leftovers to the chickens!

Shoot! i haven't had a bite of Wonder bread in something like 35 years. I do make high fiber bread, with flax meal and someties almond meal, corn meal, oat floar, wheat bran/germ, graham flout, spelt flour.

YUM!

Corporal and Tiny, ya’ll make me tired!

Lockwood’s Amazing Bread in 4 easy steps-

1. Open bread machine.
2. Dump in ingredients.
3. Press the “On” button.... and back away.
4. Pounce on bread the second it’s done. Eat while still hot enough to burn fingers.. sans butter!

Whew! *wipes brow* That was hard work!

Seriously, ya’ll work too hard at it. The machine mixes, kneads, rises, and even sings it a lullaby before baking it. Tastes every bit as good as when fresh from a regular oven, no matter the kind. Promise.
I will NEVER be without one and it’s the reason I shelled out major bucks for the Zorjirushi Supreme.

(Note the number and rating of the reviews- )

Fly- Love the canning and baking thread idea! I can torture all you normal folks with my weird flours!

The processing one? Well…. I’m a ninny these days so not sure how often I’ll hang out there. I pay the Mennonites a buck eighty-five to do the dirty deed for me.
Also sounds like it’s high time I try edamame.

As far as alternatives to tilling.... we don't have dirt. I'm not sure what the heck it is but it's awful, awful stuff. A mixture of clay and sand basically...

I can't afford to bring in semi-loads of actual dirt so I am doing this the labor intensive way and tilling in loads of compost, goat manure and so on. I let the plants die off in the garden last year (sudden freeze + 2 feet of snow I was not expecting) so what is left that the goats didn't munch I still need to till in. I;d eventually like to move to no-till but that's just not feasible yet.

I'd love to know more about processing. We've did our own turkeys last year. Haven't tried chickens yet and I prefer an actual butcher does the cows and pigs.

The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago, the second best time is today.

knocked the rust off the plow today. Worked neighbor lady's garden up. I'll go back and till it, or disc it depending how it looks.

I'm an avid gardener and may take pics of my slowly emerging garden tomorrow.....but coming from NZ to AB I've had to learn to garden the Canadian way!!! It's a bit frustrating I must say.....in NZ virtually anything will grow all year around.....I have one question for the AB gardeners here, I planted daffodil bulbs out last fall, shouldn't they be coming up now???? The hollyhocks are, the tulips are poking through, even the ferns have a little new growth....,where are my daffs!!!!!! ????????
