Our New Helpers

Over the last couple of months we have indulged in purchasing some equipment to make our storing a little easier.

From top to bottom:

Presto Pressure Canner
Dutch Cheese Press
La.va Vacuum sealer

I can wait to put all of these goodies to good use :)

2017 Bucket List

Life has been so hectic lately that I haven't had a moment to spare for blogging!
I hope to change that!!

This year I have decided to attempt various things in an aim to become more self-sufficient.
Not only to become more self-sufficient, but also to try out things that I take for granted because I can fetch them off a shelf in the supermarket!

So as I progress through 2017 I will share my various attempts with you, and hopefully share my experiences, and perhaps tips and tricks with you along the way :)

Here is my Bucket List of things to achieve thus far:
