What’s life like at my Casa. I thought I’d give you a glimpse.
So definitely read on.
I start my day off with a few cups of coffee
and of course maybe a few more throughout the day.
The dogs and cats like their breakfast, lunch and dinner of course.
And that includes the outdoor ferals I feed too.
Lately there are mulberries to pick in the morning and evening to make delicious jam and pie.
Sometimes the cast iron skillets need seasoned with a bit of shortening
to keep them in tip top shape and they cook a lot better
in my opinion if done regularly.
Life at my casa means daily caring for the garden and other plants as I grow my own food.
I discovered a few unwelcomed guests earlier as in white cabbage moths.
So I mixed up a concoction of water, onions, garlic and red pepper with a few
dashes of dish soap. It’s cooling as I type and will steep until tomorrow.
It will be strained and sprayed on all my beloved cabbage and
any other brassica plants such as squash and cucumbers among others.
I don’t currently have any hot peppers ready or they’d go in the
mix instead of red pepper.
I also add GSE which is a grapefruit extract to retard molding. Here
where it’s very humid I use it a lot to preserve things like this.
I always have lots of plants always going in the Grow room.
They will either be planted outside or continue to grow inside.
With the way things are happening in the world around us I’m doing every little
thing to prepare for food shortages and cover as many bases as possible.
On any given day you may find me making dog treats
for the dogs to enjoy now or to store for the future.
I first found this recipe and tweaked it to my liking at
I’ve mentioned making dog treats before in regard to prepping
for your animals. If you would like to read it you can find

Have You Considered Having Dog Treats in Your Preps
I regularly make homemade dog food for the dogs. I usually make enough ahead
to last several days. I’m hoping to get ahead of the game a little and start pressure
canning some ahead as well.
When finances are a bit tight I just do what I can.
I plan to share more on this in a coming post.
Both dogs at this Casa are getting older and not tolerating dry kibble at
all. That means for the time being I make all homemade dog food.
I regularly spend time putting food stores in Wallaby Mylar Bags with Oxygen absorbers.
The only thing I don’t put oxygen absorbers in is sugar and salt.
That is unless I want a huge block of sugar or salt lol
Well this is just a glimpse of my day at my Casa.
When it cools off below 90 degrees and the shade is on one part of the
yard where the gardens are, I’ll be spraying the cabbage and other brassica’s more
and weeding. No need to water since we’ve had our share of rain here.
Century Link also came this morning and cleared the lines from tree
branches and vines from the neighbor’s cutting trees down.
So that means I have more wood cutting and clean up to do as well.
Thanks for reading, have a great day, stay safe, stay aware, and
