Hi there!

I’m slowly working towards some simplicity within the home, but hey! It’s a lot of hard work!

I love having a go at growing my own veges and always use herbs fresh from my garden. I try to plant from seed whenever I can and have learnt to save and share my own seed for the following year. I make Award Winning preserves and pickles; and my husband brews Award Winning boutique beers as well. I love to stockpile and try to limit quick trips to the shops. I dabble in bread making and enjoy making my own stocks too.

I enjoy feeding my family good hearty meals, nothing like those tiny restaurant stacks you have to look for on the plate. My husband maintains our vehicles and machinery and we both enjoy fabricating on a small scale mostly relying on metal & timber recyclers for any materials needed.

While I don’t always have time to reply to comments, I love reading them. I hope you enjoy your stay and I hope you learn something new because I love sharing what I learn, and I'm always looking for another new skill myself.

Preserving Lemons - Part 2

This photo comes a bit later than I had wished, but I have to tell you about the preserved lemons I did earlier. The jars I used were not the best.....For some reason, the lids kept popping off....I tried removing the top layer of lemons, I even tried taping the lids down with wide brown tape...and the tape stretched so the lids could still pop off.

I have now decanted the lemons into these clip-lock jars....which is a much better option. I have no problems with them now.

These jars are not recommended for preserving lemons.

Clip-lock jars are suitable.
