Family isn't always blood. It's the people in your life who want you in theirs. The ones who accept you for who you are. The ones who would do anything to see you smile, and who love you no matter what. - Unknown

Ginseng

This post may contain affiliate links. This means if you make a purchase, I will receive a small commission at no cost to you. I received this Ginseng for free or at a discount for my honest review. To see my full disclosure, click here.   

I've always had a hard time concentrating on things but I am hoping this will help with that.


I love that this can help to boost the immune system as well as the memory. Korean red ginseng is also supposed to help lower blood pressure. This supplement has been FDA approved for overall health support. It's good for the memory, for energy, for blood pressure, and for overall brain health.


I have been taking this for about a week so far and I can't say that I don't feel better, but I also can't say that it is effective. I do seem to have better concentration and I haven't been sick. So I would think that seems to say it does work, but only time will tell I guess. I will have to update this later to determine if it is actually effective.


So there is a month supply in this one bottle and then I will have to determine if it works or not. If you would like to try this supplement you can get it on Amazon here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01L1B16ZE  I would love to hear if you do try it and what it has done for you. Just leave me a comment below and let me know your experience with this product.

Have a great day!

Soil

One of the most important aspects of gardening is the soil. If you don't have good soil, your plants won't be healthy. Every plant needs nutrients that it will get from the soil so you have to make sure that each nutrient is in your soil to have healthy plants.


There are so many ways that one can make sure the soil has what you need, but my understanding is that sending your soil in for testing is the best way to know what amendments you are going to need. Your country health department should be able to tell you where to go to have this done. Most cities appear to have at least one place that can do these tests.



Once you get your results back, then you would add your amendments that are needed for you soil. If you are wanting to go without chemicals, there are many different things you can use in your garden to amend the soil and make sure your plants have everything they need. In our garden, we have used Epsom salts, eggs shells, lime, and DE for both amending the soil and for pest management. So far we have not used any chemicals in our garden.

This is best done before you plant anything. Otherwise, you will be like us and trying to figure out why certain plants are doing great and others are dying. The use of our compost has seemed to help a lot in this regard. However, the more you know before you start planting will help you in the long run to have healthy plants that provide much for your family.

Have a great day!

Cleaning Goat Pens

To keep your goats healthy you will need to make sure that the goat pens are kept clean. This is really an easy thing to do with just a few good tools to make the job easy.


A good hay rake will help to make the job easier. The hay rake is just a plastic rake that slides along the ground and picks up the hay. A hard rake will come in handy at times too to get all the harder stuff out of the pen.



To keep the pens clean we generally rake them out once a week. However, sometimes they will need to be done a couple times during the week. We use the hay rake first to get all the loose hay off the ground. If it needs more to come out we grab the hard rake and go to it. Shovel everything into the wheelbarrow and it's done.


We move everything out of the pens to our compost pile that will later be used in the garden. We keep it piled in the back with the chickens so that they will go through it every day and we just keep raking it into a pile and spraying it down with water to keep the chickens coming back to it to keep it turning. This will make the compost usable for the garden in about a month.

Have a great day!
