PEAK OIL

We love this used oil delivery set up!

The other day one of our clients dropped off 21 of these containers full of used cooking oil.  That’s A LOT of GREASE!

They pulled up and left the oil on our driveway.  Justin took a photo and said “Look – Peak Oil.”  Very funny, very funny.  Think he’s a funny guy, huh?

This oil should last us about 4 months.  Though we use biodiesel to fuel our car, we aren’t what you might call biodiesel advocates.  We feel that biodiesel is a temporary (“band-aid”) solution to the world’s fuel addiction.

Back to the used veg oil, now we have to find some room in the garage – which is turning more and more into a “barn” these days.  Yep, we have some additional “homesteady” plans for our garage. 

Right now our garage is a biodiesel plant/seed storage/beekeeping storage/ bicycle parking/Peddlers Wagon boxes and everything else storage.

But that could change, very soon.

    Hi there, I know you are quite busy but I believe in sharing knowledge– Do you know about the rain gutter gardening system. Its on Youtube, you can type it in the search engine or the name of the inventor, Larry Hall Basically you are watering your plants from underneath in a 5 gallon bucket. I know how small your space is but take a look at the videos, many people are talking about and trying it. I will be one of them this spring.
