My dad gave me this mower that he’d been holding on to, which is just cool. It is human-powered, makes a clean cut, and is much easier to push around than a standard gas-powered push mower. I don’t have much need for it at the moment, but I was more than willing to take it.
I spent the better part of this morning plowing the garden with my new 16″ rear-tine Huskee tiller. It’s a little late in Alabama for the usual planting season to start, but we’ve had a late winter with wildly fluctuating weather. I’m excited about the months to come and the tasty homegrown food that awaits.
I tried my hand at making some tortillas tonight. My car battery died, which meant I couldn’t drive to town to get any pre-packaged ones. I had already made some bean/rice mix and guacamole on Sunday. So, I just threw them on my first ever homemade tortillas. They were not perfect, but they’ll beat store-bought ones any day.
One of my soon-to-be neighbors was kind enough to pass along about 6 lbs. of deer burger meat to me. Awesome guy.
Of course, I made some burger patties with it. I added a little cheese, some bacon slices, and a few tomato chunks. Then, I topped it off with some homemade mayo. Yum!
