One mother making ends meet and surviving today's recession by writing. One family learning to live off the land, cut back on expenses, and to live a simpler and a more self-sufficient lifestyle.

Seriously Mom!

"Did Mom just put lettuce in that pillow case?" screamed my oldest daughter in shock."Seriously Mom?"

Yes I did.  I just learned that an old pillow case works great for a "salad spinner."  It won't do well for fruit, but for our homegrown, freshly picked lettuce, swiss chard and spinach, it did.

If the kids thought I was nuts a long time ago, they are in few more shocks. Ha ha ha!
