a half of cup of Parmesan,Romano, and Asiago cheese

1/4 cup cottage cheese

1/4 cup Ricotta cheese

Johnny’s seasoning salt


1 package of garlic herb sauce

1 and 1\2 cups of milk

First I boiled my

cut up the Broccoli

pasta for 9 minutes, as I cooked the bacon after I cut it up in to small bite size.

Now Take your leftover mozzarella and cheddar cheese and sprinkle the over the top.

The creamy garlic herb sauce that will be poured over the stuffed shells

This is what it looks like after you stuff the shells and before you put the sauce and cheese over it.

Place in preheated 350 degree oven and bake until the cheese is melty. Enjoy it is very yummy.

Food Freedom

By Farm Food Freedom Coalition and WAPF

February 24, 2012–Baraboo, WI—Food sovereignty activists from around North America will meet at this tiny town on March 2, 2012 to support Wisconsin dairy farmer Vernon Hershberger and food sovereignty. Hershberger, who has a court hearing that day, is charged with four criminal misdemeanors that could land him in prison for three years with fines of over $10,000. The Wisconsin Department of Agricultural Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) targeted Hershberger for supplying a private buying club with fresh milk and other farm products.

Rural Spin

Color me optimistic, but I’m calling “spring on its way.” If someone tells me it’s still winter, I’ll call them a stinkin’ liar. It’s spring and this means it’s time to start seeds in preparation for the growing season. It comes quicker than you think!

But along with being optimistic, I am also not rich enough to buy those pre-packaged seed starting kits I’ve seen in the store. I’d rather spend my money on other things like a really nice microbrew once in awhile. I also have a small house (about 800 sf total) and not much room to construct the seed-starting nursery to rival the Colosseum that I’ve seen other people manage. So my seed starting set up has to be cheap, productive, and take up little space.

Great Idea

A Sonoma Garden

Speaking of tomatoes, would you like to see how we set up our tomato patch? We’ve tried lots of different methods, from simply sticking the plants into the ground, to using that fancy red plastic mulch (which doesn’t work at all), but this is our absolute favorite method because it really gets water to the roots. It’s a method adapted to our needs from the book, How to Grow World Record Tomatoes (an excellent read). Grown this way we easily get 6 foot – 10 foot tomato plants each year, organically of course!

First we bought a few yards of drainage pipe (like PVC pipe with 1/2″ holes drilled into it) and cut it into 18″ lengths. Then after tilling the beds, we dig a hole with the post hole digger on either side of where the tomato plant will be planted.
Place a length of pipe into the hole.
