Time to start the garden

I want a different kind of garden this year with some new goodies to enjoy. I am trying to decide just what we should plant, though.

We really would love to do a bit more canning this year, so I want to plant vegetables that are prime for canning. This way they will last longer. That also means our garden will be significantly larger this year around. We will do our standard stuff that we like a lot, as well as the new veggies. I have a lot of research to do on the best crops to plant as well as care, planting and harvesting information that is necessary.

Fresh veggies go bad quickly if they are not either frozen or canned right away. I have decided to get a deep freezer so we can freeze veggies as well as canning them.  The garage is large enough to hold it successfully and I have already picked out the space for it. It will definitely come in handy this coming year when the garden begins producing. I don’t mind giving away some fresh veggies to family and friends but I would really like to be able to keep a bit more of it this time around.

Giant Fish Sales

The Japanese have been well known for their love of fish. This is especially true when it comes to the taste of tuna. They have proven their love of tuna when a Japanese businessman paid a record price of $ 750,000 dollars for a prized blue fin tuna. He plans to sell the fish to the customers at his restaurant.

The tuna weighed in at a weight of 592 pounds. The owner of the fish says it is perfect with just the right amount of fat and that the color is very good. I guess time will tell and we will see whether or not the tuna pays off.

Merry Christmas To All

It’s that wonderful time of the year again and I wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas. This years Christmas has been wonderful so far and I hope it has been for you too!

We had a great ham dinner and relatives galore. We had some great phone calls from far away family and cards and letters from old friends. All the presents are unwrapped and everyone got a treat. All in all it was a great time for all!

happy holidays

Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year!

TV and Christmas

It has hard put to find anything on the television that isn’t pertaining to the Holiday Season, that is in full swing as I type these holiday words, we just can’t seem to get away from this over abundance of Holiday Spirit.

At the Mall and ALL the other stores have been playing holiday music for the past several weeks and have gone the extra mile to decorate in the most elaborate decorating frenzy ever, it just seems that it is everywhere and it can be a bit over whelming when you are as strapped for cash as I seem to be lately.

One more week and it will all be a memory, hopefully a good one for each and all.

It’s That Time Of The Year

Besides watching football on Thanksgiving Day, my of my favorite things to watch is the news about those who wait for a store to open for days before Black Friday. I wonder of these people are really as crazy as they seem. Going through all that trouble just to shop??

I think I’ll do what I always do and that is to stay home and order my things on the internet. Why fight the crowds when I can have what I need delivered to my house. These people are just not thinking to clearly. They are fun to watch though.
