Beekeeper Trained His Bees To Make Honey From Weed

Now here’s a cool idea! Weed-infused honey. This beekeeper apparently trained his bees to make honey from marijuana. Apparently it’s possible to have natural made THC honey. Now I don’t know about you, but if true, this is really a novel idea. Homesteaders who love bees and weed might do well learning this technique. Honey is a natural antibiotic anyway, as well as a natural sweetener, and it’s great on fresh home baked biscuits! THC and cannabinoids are said to have medicinal value and is purported to treat cancer and many other illnesses.

So, if this is for real, and bees will make honey from weed, and the cannabinoids and THC are transferred to the honey, then this could be a medical breakthrough. As well as provide a great sweet treat while giving … Read More »

DIY Rainbow Scout Vests

Have you ever heard of the Campfire Girls? I love looking at vintage Girl and Boy Scout items online, and stumbled upon the Campfire Girls while browsing. If you do a quick image search for “campfire girls vests”, you’ll see that their vests are decorated with different badges, shapes, and beads and the layout varies a lot from vest to vest. As the girls received badges and beads, they would attach them onto their vests into whatever designs they chose. This is what sparked the idea for these playful paper vests!

This summer, make crepe paper vests with your kids and reward good behavior with simple paper badges! The perfect activity to start on a rainy day, make the vest and a few decorative badges to start. Make extra paper badges to keep on hand for little treats … Read More »

Lessons From History – Eating Well Off Home Food Preservation

Lessons From History – Eating Well Off Home Food Preservation

Growing and storing foods is commonly a goal we strive for as we seek self-sufficiency. The easiest and fastest way to store foods is, of course, just dumping it into a root cellar or grain bin or barn, although not everything does so hot with that treatment. Hanging things like corn or onion braids from rafters or digging a pit to keep carrots or potatoes in is pretty close. We’ve been drying slivers and chunks of foods in the air for millennia now.
