I don't care for cooked peppers so I've always just replaced them with carrots in recipes that seemed to be using them as a mirepoix. I am happy to confirm my assumption that peppers must replace carrots in Creole cooking.  I wonder if carrots just don't grow well in Louisiana or something?

I have made these several times.  The base is almond flour though I imagine other nut or seed flours would work as well.  https://www.genaw.com/lowcarb/almond_thins.html. I skip the sweetener and vary the seasonings.

I don't think this is the answer you are looking for but I  carry mine in a 5 gallon bucket with one of those bucket aprons on it for other bits and pieces I might need.

There is a story in my family that my great-grandmother used to have a truck come once a year to fill her pantry with canned vegetables.  I think this must have been a time saving move on her part because my great-grandparents lived on a farm!  This may also have been how people made the transition between growing/preserving/cooking all their own food, and the way supermarkets are in use today.

I have an apple tree that is north of a forest of deciduous trees.  Somehow it still produces apples.  It may get a little bit of filtered light in the afternoons.  It came with the property and only produces little 2 inch green apples so I will be grafting more productive varieties in the hopes for tasty apples in the future.

Oh my this is useful information!   I've inherited a couple of scythes but the wood is quite damaged on one of them.  I'm inspired to dig around a little bit more to see if I can refurbish them for use in the spring.

So I have been reading along in this thread because I hope to have chickens that will raise their own young.  Currently I have guineas who have never gone broody for me.  After the last couple of posts, I did a search on Backyard Chickens to see what people generally do with nesting boxes.  Within the first few hits of my search I was led to this article.  I thought it might appeal to us Permies due to the careful observations of the writer.  https://www.backyardchickens.com/articles/nest-boxes-why-do-we-make-a-sitting-hens-job-so-difficult.74389/

I propose this chowder recipe:  https://savorthebest.com/wild-alaskan-smoked-salmon-chowder/
I froze the rest of the slab I had to make this soup again later.

I grew up on a property that had once been part of a larger farm.  My house was built next to a kind of gully that was located about 300 to 400 yards from the farm house.  Guess where the farmers' dump was!  My mother spent years going down there and pulling out the dangerous rusted tin cans and broken glass bottles down there.  It was a favorite play area for my brother and I but we were admonished to stay on the path.  Luckily we tended to stay on the slope above where all the trash ended up.  It certainly was a life lesson about waste!
