ID'ing Bird Feathers

If you are a birder then you are constantly noticing loss bird feathers. I can ID many feathers but every once in a Blue Moon....I come upon one that stumps me. 

 I thought this was a Hawk Feather but was unsure. My dear niece who is also a bird lover sent me this helpful link: The Feather Atlas

Thanks to this helpful site...my feather is a wing feather from a Cooper's Hawk.

This site is very user friendly.

Cartersville Farmer's Market...Success!

I didn't know what to expect. I barely made it in time to set-up at 7:00 am.  Customers slowly came. 

Ended up selling out of my quart jars of Homemade Clothes Soap! Also sold one 1 gallon and one waxed clothed. 

All in All a super good day!  

I need a sign. Duh!


Waxed Clothes are hanging to dry. They are a good replacement for plastic wrap and wax paper. You can wash them in lukewarm water and dish wash. Save the Planet by using these items.

Cartersville, Georgia Farmer's Market 2015

Saturday May 30th is the kick-off day for the Cartersville Farmer's Market. I have been a happy customer for years. This year I will be a seller and I am excited to be a part of this local market!

I have been making Homemade Clothes Soap for years. It cleans just as good if not better than all  store brands and is very, very kind to our environment. I do this for my grandchildren and their grandchildren...so do it for yours. Hope there will be birds still living in the future. 



If you live near Cartersville....hope to see you Saturday May 30th.  There will be a great plant sell too!

Wishing Love, Peace, Health, and Wealth to all!

Happy Earth Day...April 22, 2015!

Happy Earth Day!



Keeping the love inside until the temps stay warm. 

Update: Earth Day's weather was perfect! Started my Straw Bale Garden. I will be documenting my experience with this very neat way to garden. Especially for someone like me who has a bad back and not the greatest soil. This is a simple way to have a raised bed. 

I set up 3 bales cut sides up on cardboard in a sunny spot and watered them well. 

My Organic fertilizer should arrive just in time to apply and water in. Should be able to plant in a couple of weeks. I can't wait!

Have you any advice on gardening with straw bales? Please share! 

What are you doing for Earth Day?

Wishing Love, Peace, Health, and Wealth to ALL!

Forever Celery Plant

I like celery and buy it often. Did you know that you can easily regrow one from the root end of that bunch you just brought? I didn't either. I decided to give this a try since it sounded simple and easy. Started my celery the last week in March. This plant grows fast!

First you take the bottom end and put it in a bowl of water. I used a wine glass. 

In a couple of days you will see some tiny green leaves starting to emerged.

The outer edges will start to dry. That's OK. 

When it has a nice group of leaves it is ready to plant in a pot.

Just plant the whole plant and watch it really take off. 

I punched holes in the bottom of a coffee can for my pot. I keep this pot in a sunny window. However I may move it outside. There are 3 stalks up with another tiny one appearing in the middle. You can harvest the outer stalks as needed and it will continue to produce. 

 I call this my Forever Celery. There are other veggies that you can re-grow. I think I will try onions and lettuce next.   

Wishing Love, Peace, Health, and Wealth to ALL!
