cutting carrots and looking up tax maps while curing onions and pulling up lame tomatoes

Looking up tax maps, cutting carrots, and deleting an insipid tomato plant from the garden are just a few of the things we've been up to this past week.

Its been a good year for cucumbers and an even better year for onions

We tested a new kind of low tech chicken plucker. This innovative solution is a drill powered plucker that only cost 30 dollars and is easy to operate. Anna was surprised at how effective it was at getting the pin feathers and I was impressed with its sturdy construction. The savings add up pretty quick when you figure a few minutes multiplied by 20 equals a precious hour.

Anna Hess and Mark Hamilton like to share most of their homesteading adventures at their blog called Walden Effect. They make and sell a new kind of chicken waterer that brings an industrial solution to the backyard chicken keeper.
