OUR LIFE ON THE WILD SIDE!!!!!

OUR LIFE ON THE WILD SIDE NOW– IS OUR GARDENING– & OUR YARD & ALL OF OUR WILD LIFE WE FEED & ENJOY!!!! (Praise God– as some of you probably remember Gary & I when we were younger &  that was NOT our wild side!!!! ) 🙂  hee hee

Everyone says– why do you have all that wild life in your yard– we DON’T HAVE ANY!!!!!!  Well we don’t use TOXIC KILLING CHEMICALS– INSIDE OF OUR HOME OR OUT SIDE OF OUR HOME or in our yard or on our plants!!!!!!!!!!!!! And we feed the wild life– chemical free– food!!!!!!!!! 

The Heirloom seed catalogs are arriving in the mail— We plant heirloom seeds— with NO GMO’S!!!!!! And we can seed save with heirloom seeds– & everything has better flavor– well there are about a million reasons to plant HEIRLOOM SEEDS!!!!!!!!!!!

Baker Creek Seeds is a favorite of ours!!!

And there are many  heirloom seeds companies we enjoy!!!!

 
And Landreth Seeds
 
Well there are many good Heirloom seeds companies– & as long as they sell HEIRLOOM SEEDS—-
 
Gary  & I love to garden– we both were Farm kids– & we know how to garden– & we totally enjoy gardening– and it is good therapy– & good excercise– & the best chemical free eating!!!!!!!!!!!!
 
We can’t raise everything we need– so we support LOCAL FARMER’S MARKETS– know your food source– & KNOW IF THEY USE CHEMICALS OR NOT!!!!!!!!!!!
 
buy fresh buy local
 
 
 
Gary & I have a small green house– & we have compose piles & composers– so we know what our soil has in it– when we plant our garden– when you compose– you can keep the chemicals & pesticides & other crap out of your soil!!!
 
We do a lot of container gardening!!! And we have lots of flowers &  we plant for our wild life & to attract bees & butter flies– & birds– etc– etc–  & the good bugs!!!
 
We live on Lake Taneycomo– & people say don’t you have skitters living on the lake–  NO WE DON’T!!!!!!!!!
But I also plant mint & rosemary all over in our yard– I have cho. mint– pineapple mint– apple mint– spear mint– & peppermint– all kinds of mint– & we have containers  of mint on all of our decks– & patios & porches– & the skitters hate mint!!! We are not bothered by the bad bugs– plus the birds keep away the  unwanted bugs!!
 
Gary & I are planning our flower beds for this next season– planning on doing a lot more in our back yard– & deciding what we want to replant this season– by way of flowers & also our veggies & container garden!!!
 
We also plant for our wild life that lives in our back yard & in the forest behind our home!!

About sondasmcschatter

I was encouraged to start a blog as I suffer from MCS /multi chemical sensitivities & other health problems & I have helped several hundred others who suffer from MCS set up "Safe Homes" & given them encouragement & HOPE & share information & lots of laughs along the way also. When you choose to use fragrances, chemicals, or pesticides, You are not simply making a choice for yourself, You are making a choice for everyone around you!!!! What makes me an expert on MCS-- not a darn thing-- BUT have lived with it for years-& years- & have learned lots the HARD WAY-- by experience!! And want to give others help & HOPE & encouragement -- as I know there are not many who understand what it is to live with this illness- & ALL THAT GOES WITH IT!!! Internet has been my way of communication with many who we are confined to their "safe homes" all over the USA & other countries!! I have communicated with many HUNDRED by e-mail-- phone & letters & internet forums-- I hope this blog will help in a better way to share laughter-- hope & information!!! As for many are not any longer able to even leave their homes-- & communication is sooo important & sharing & encouragement & GIVING HOPE!!!
