Ward House

Along the lines of Gardening

     Gardening is great as long as one knows how to use what is grown and how to store it for later use.  Challenged in both areas, I am.  Sharon has some great information on storing food, how much, etc here.  I also need to send a request to WNDN to post about how to store broth for use later.

Along those same lines, another item on my list is to build a root cellar in the basement.  Now I have an old farm house and the current basement is 1/4 dug out by hand.  I found a great idea on the Mother Earth News site on how to build a root cellar in the basement.  I am sure there is a wealth of other sites on the web.

Oh, so the second bedroom is finished and Mariah decided to paint it LovelandLoveland.  There is the “L” window seat that is in need of a cushion – has not stopped the girls from sitting there though.  Ronnie has started work on the 3rd bedroom to discover that the walls and ceiling are tongue and groove! 

Other exciting news:  bought some cheap fabric from wallmart to make my first apron.  I wanted to practice on something cheap before cutting into the expensive stuff.  Also, looks like we will be picking up a Todd wood cook stove from the neighbor for $300 –  I cannot wait!
