I've been working furiously on quilts while the weather is cold. I've made 5 patchwork quilts from mostly scraps of material and old clothes. My husband asked me to make a patchwork quilt from our old jeans. It's coming along nicely, I think!

Time to plan the garden! I've received so many seed catalogues, I don't know what to do with them all. I have saved seeds in the past from my plants (from non-hybrid plants). I think with the way the world is going, I will start saving more this year. I wonder if the non-hybrid seeds will grow better plants. Will the non-hybrid seeds stored last a long time?

I looked out my window and saw my bee hive knocked over! I ran out but it was too late. All the bees were dead. I have no idea what knocked it over, there were no animal tracks or prints on the hive. It was not windy out. There had been times when it was very windy and it stayed up fine. So I don't know what happened. Now I have to start all over this Spring. I'm trying to figure out how to keep it from falling over again. Any ideas out there?

If we had to live off our pantry, canned goods, and 2 freezers, and chickens, how long could my family last? I haven't any idea on how to calculate the length of time. Does anyone know how to figure this out?
