My absence from blogging....and a few other things

Just wanted to post a quick note that I hope to have some time to start posting again soon.  I started a new part time job on December 2nd & the last few months have flown by for me and The Fam.

I've still been trying out new recipes with the Thrive & have discovered that the freeze dried fruit makes some really tasty jam.  I just bought some instant fruit pectin from the store and am going to try using it next time. Stay tuned for some more pics & reviews out of the Thrive Cookbook.

I don't know how many of you have seasonal allergies but I know this time of year affects alot of people.  I've been doing some research on herbal remedies for tree pollen and there's not much out there.  I did find a website that listed some herbs that had antihistamine affects.  Check out for a list of herbs that could help.  I plan on adding them to my shelf since they also have other health benefits.

Dad, with the help of Frank T., started on the aquaponics greenhouse dome a few weeks ago. They finished the frame & will be working on putting the cover on it soon.  I've posted pics of the progress below.


Well, it's now 1:42 a.m. & I have to be back at work in the a.m., so I better get some rest.  I promise to be back soon with more recipe reviews and pics.

Have a great Monday! Happy Prepping,
