    ‘Tis the season for dirty hands around here. Usually the fingernails are the worst. We keep a scrub brush handy, but we don’t worry about being spotless. It is a sign of what occupies our time. πŸ˜€

    At our little home here ,dirty hands are what we have this time of year and it doesn’t bother us a bit. A person sure cannot get bored when you have so much to do and being out and about in the fresh air, what more can you ask for. We got a new male duck today at our local poultry show…now just need to find him a mate. Poor thing looks so lonely by himself. And to boot we are having just heavenly weather. Thanks guys for what you are doing it really gives encouragement to all of us.

    I was intrigued by your use of EM-1, so I got a bottle of the stuff. I have started some bokashi, and have some activated EM-1 cooking.

    Do you have a PDF run down on how you use the stuff? I collect rainwater as well, can I put EM-1 in there to keep it from going south? What about putting EM-1 in your Ollas? Any benefit or do the pores filter out the microbes?

    I have done a ton of research and EM-1 really seems quite mysterious as well. Plus, the stuff is NOT cheap, got any low cost tricks to make it last longer?
