As a child I loved to drink the juice when the pickles were all eaten. But that was the sweet kind of pickle juice. I still like pickles, but not that sweet.

Thank you Paul for reminding me (in your monthly-ish) of the Freebies. I see I missed many of them. Now I'll have to wait till next time they come along
I wanted one (I probably wrote that long ago), but I can never find them! Only on Amazon, but I do not want to order there ...

Here in the Netherlands rhubarb is (or was) often grown in backyard and alotment gardens. Mostly used to make a mush or jam. The ingredients were not only rhubarb stalks and sugar, but also a little chalk powder. (only very little!) The chalk somewhat neutralises the oxalic acid and therefore one doesn't need to use that much sugar. This is the way I my mother taught me and I still use her recipe. Only I add a little vanilla (the black seeds from the vanilla pods).

I don't know if your date palm would survive. I don't know if my fan palms will survive. I know someone who got a date palm to fruit in a really big pot on their porch in a climate that it would not survive the winter. I think that with enough microclimate and some little tricks you might be able to have a date palm, but you won't know until you try.

Then I'll keep this one indoors (put it outdoors during summer maybe), and put some other date pits in the garden. If they want to grow there, they'll grow there!

I don't have a toddler crawling around. I'm only by myself. My clean pee rags are in a sort of basket hanging on the wall next to the toilet and on the floor beneath is another basket standing for the used ones. I wash them together with the other laundry (like underwear and payamas)

Last time I visited the Bullocks Permaculture Homestead, they gave me a pile of fan palm seeds. I have moved twice since then and fortuitously, 5 of the seedlings ended up at Wheaton Labs with me. We will see how they like Abbey life :)

Hi Josiah. I've got a Date palm growing in a pot (from seed) that's now as large (small) as the palm you show in your video. Do you think it's possible to plant it outdoors, in a climate like yours (or a little less cold in winter)?

Wasn't there a topic about this before? Or was it somewhere else? Anyway: I heard or read about 'pee rags' and made them out of old (thin) towels. I am using them now for about a year. Like the name says: only for pee droplets.
For the other cleaning I have a jar of water, I use the 'left hand' and then some t.p. People in/from Asian countries use water for cleaning for ages, so why not we?
