flourHere is a list of what I am adding to the pantry. I have decided not to include items already in the pantry or items I add from the grocery store. I shop the sales all the time and am constantly adding that stuff. I want a list of stores that came from other sources.

  1. Just found your blog today & I love it!!
    I wanted to know how you dried clover for your chickens & where did you find it? That is such a great idea! Also, do you give it to them everyday during the winter?

  2. Hi Debbie,

    I pick them stems, leaves and blossoms mid morning once they have had a chance to dry out. I have several old window screens set up on saw horses and simply lay them out in a single layer, mid afternoon I will turn them and by dark they usually are dry on a sunny day. I put them in 5 gal plastic buckets with a lid. Yes, I had plans on doing that had the neighbors dog not killed all of them here, so my greens went down the road and the chickens there are enjoying them daily.


  3. I would love to have your rosehip jelly recipe, I can’t seem to find one that doesn’t require taking all of the seeds out, which is TEDIOUS! Thanks!!

  4. I’ve three hens that are a year old. I also have 10 chicks that are a couple of months old. We’re out of chicken food and feeding them whatever and letting them free range. I’d not thought about trying to dry anything for them.
