I think apple is my all time favorite. It's a staple in our house. The apples this year are tasty and delicious. Ithaca has a lot of talented apple growers.

Clean up after pets

As the sun sets earlier, my chickens are spending more time in the coop at night, with means a little bit more cleanup in the mornings every day.

My cats are beginning to stay indoors a little bit more, too.

One bag of Instant Liquid Soap, diluted to 2 gallons is an excellent soap to clean up after pets and/or livestock.



How to clean your stovetop using zero waste methods

When the weather is hot and steamy, like Us Northeast Summers can be, I make more raw foods, and live on salads. As temperatures drop, I cook more and plan my baking to make the house toasty warm and cozy.

This means my stove gets really dirty. Instant Liquid Soap easily cleans a greasy stovetop, using zero waste methods.

My bees worked hard this summer dealing with drought and high temperatures. They only made 1 round of honey instead of the usual 2. They've been slowing down these past few weeks, looking for those last bits of pollen and going back to the hives early.

Be nice to your bees. They take care of your food supply. bees.html
