Hello again, and welcome back to Ridin Out the Recession. We appreciate you stopping back by, so grab a chair and let’s talk awhile!
You know, we’ve met so many people through our site, and by doing the You Tube videos we’ve made even more. We’re sharing a few more of these in the hopes that they may inspire you to plant a garden, or if nothing else, maybe even just planting a “few hills” of different vegetables.
The taste, fresh outta the garden, is hands down much better than you could ever get out of the grocery store. For those who don’t garden, you don’t have to have 3-4 acres, but your own backyard can produce all kinds of goodies for you.
Better yet, it’s something the kids may end up loving to help you with. You’d be amazed at the number of those little guys who would show interest if you’d only spend a few minutes each day with them. They too, are intrigued by watching the little plants pop up outta the ground.
Then they can see how each plant produces their own vegetables. This just astounds are granddaughter Shelby Lynn, and once they start coming in, she HAS to help you pick them. That little girl loves to be out in the garden, and boy this sure allows Deb and I to spend some good, sound, quality time with her.
She’ll be one who will enjoy us passing down to her some of the things Deb and I do, like home canning, or even how you cook each meal. I’m telling you, that girl just loves being out like that. She’s attentive and it shows how well she likes to piddle in this way.
But again, let’s get back to some videos. These friends of ours all like to garden, and it’s obvious. They have some much to share, and the best part is…they want to share with you. Once again, Deb and I are so glad of the opportunity Judi, Brian, and the Canada Free Press provided for us! It’s been really enjoyable!
Our first three videos today come from a couple friends out in Texas. They have nice gardens always, and it’s obvious they love messin around in their garden.
They’ll be showing how to make green tomato relish. They picked their green tomatoes in front of a hard freeze they had coming, so…better safe than sorry! Also, it looks as if ole Tim just might be…Chef Tim!
Look out buddy! If your wife is anything like ole Deb, you just might not want to show her just how much you CAN DO around the dern kitchen! LOL!! Good job Tim! Plus…we love your background music!
Doesn’t the relish look great? I tell you, if you have some room, the home canning products look so good to us in the jars. The colors are beautiful! The ability to share is so tremendous anymore! It just amazes Deb and I the info that’s out there…right at your fingertips!
The second video from Tim and his wife is giving you a heads up. We all know what kind of tough economic times we’re going through. With this being the case, we all are looking for ways to pinch a penny.
Today Tim and the “Boss lady” are showing you how to make your own laundry soap. According to Tim the cost per load when doing your laundry is a staggering…1-1/2 cents, again, PER LOAD!
Check them out…
Doesn’t their shed with the Dr. Pepper sign look great? Those chairs on the porch were almost hollerin out…Dub, oh Dub, don’t you want to come and sit a while? LOL!
The next video from Tim today is from right before Thanksgiving. He’s sitting out by a small fire sharing some of the things he’s thankful for.
Tim’s a great guy, and I felt you’d all like to hear what he has to say! He too talks about the great opportunity that You Tube presents for us all. It is a tremendous sharing experience! He also shares what’s going on in their garden this fall.
They’re having good success with the fall garden, but as Tim mentions, this summer was disastrous on account of drought! We’re glad to see things are better now!
Great video, huh? We think a lot of Tim, and he does a good job in regards to his videos!
Let’s close out today with a few more. I was going to share a couple of more friends videos, but I believe I’ll finish it up with Tim.
This next one is picking and canning some Jalapenos. There’s a freeze coming so he’s picking as much as they can from their garden. They also make some Jalapeno, carrot, and onion relish.
This next video we’ll be putting up of Tim’s today is showing his chickens cleaning up his garden some. This too is something Deb and I have to do, is get some chickens. We’ve got our coop built, but have yet to put the fence up. Sometime in the near future…
The thing I like so much about the video sharing with all our friends is that it’s shown to you…via video. This to me makes it so much simpler to understand, and breaks it down for the simpler minded folks…meaning, ME!
I get so much more out of something if I can watch the process while someone explains it at the same time. Again, this is such a great way to share knowledge!
Our last video is of Tim is showing something that they lacked plenty of this year…RAIN! It had been 51 days since their previous rainfall! So, don’t you know those guys were ecstatic over this!
Well, we hoped you enjoyed Tim’s videos, and we’ll start sharing more of these as they come our way. We enjoy them and I believe you guys , like Deb and I, will find them very entertaining, and helpful too.
We’ll start putting up other’s videos as well, and dern if we might notall learn a thing or two before it’s over with!
Before closing out, our buddy Roger sent us another joke. He claims this to be the FIRST Christmas joke of 2011. Whether or not that’s really the case, Deb and I both got tickled over this one!
Three good ole boys died on Christmas Eve and were met by Saint Peter at the pearly gates.
‘In honor of this holy season’ Saint Peter said, ‘You must each possess something that symbolizes Christmas to get into heaven.’
The cowboy from Texas fumbled through his pockets and pulled out a lighter. He flicked it on. ‘It represents a candle’, he said.
‘You may pass through the pearly gates’ Saint Peter said.
The logger from Minnesota reached into his pocket and pulled out a set of keys. He shook them and said, ‘They’re bells.’
Saint Peter said ‘You may pass through the pearly gates’.
The old Nebraska farmer started searching desperately through his pockets and finally pulled out a pair of women’s panties.
St. Peter looked at the man with a raised eyebrow and asked, ‘And just what do those symbolize?’
The Husker replied, ‘These are Carols.’
You guys have a great day and God Bless! Also, as Deb advises…keep a smile on your face, and one in your heart!
Dub and Debbie
