The 2018 March Box has both tools to help around the homestead, as well as elements to help heal, relax and play after a hard days work! We love The Homestead Planner and Logbook because of the durable cover that contains tons of helpful information and lots of predesigned log books for tracking almost everything on the farm!
You can use this information to make critical decisions from year to year, and understand the workings of your environment and climate much better. Once you start using this on a daily basis this will be pure gold to your homestead.
We love American Made. You don’t get much more American Made than CASE Knives. This beautiful but basic EDC style yellow handle slimline trapper has served hard working men for at least 100 years. We are still finding uses for ours everyday as it fits comfortably in our pocket and is always sharp enough for just about any task! The yellow handle is a classic that allows for easy handle care (there is none required since it is synthetic!) , plus it has the added bonus in that it is easy to see when you drop it! Whether this is your first CASE or one of many, you can rest assure that this tool will be handed down to your grandkids one day.
This March box had something for the entire family! The lady of the house loved the Georgia Rain Soy Candle and The Georgia Bath Bomb as well as the Smith’s Rosebud Salve. These were used so quickly we were not able to get photos of all of them in use! The wonderful bath bomb was their fragrant Eucalyptus Spearmint Giant Bath Bomb + Soap. The aroma of the Georgia Rain Candle was wonderful and helped cover the smell of fresh cooked fish in the kitchen perfectly. Our dry skin was quickly remedied by the unique healing power contained within the Rosebud Salve.
For tea lovers we have discovered a wonderful new brand in organics, Davidson’s Classic Teas. Their breakfast blend was smooth and rich in flavor. We cant wait to try more of their selections.
It was perfect to mellow down with after a hard days work.
Their organic farming methods protect their farmers, who are helping all of us, while also taking care of the environment. They, their children, and own animals avoid exposure to chemicals which might harm them. Unlike in conventional tea gardens, the tea pluckers and their families are exposed to harmful chemicals when spraying the pest affected crop. Insecticides and pesticides sprayed on crops are toxic, banned from several countries and are seriously dangerous to the farmers’ health. These chemically treated conventional teas are then indirectly passed on to the end-consumer. Davidson’s is seriously committed to organic farming, not just for the benefit to our consumer, but to the well being of our farmers.
Our rain gauge has been busy recently measuring our early spring rains.
| Our box this month also included a durable metal thermometer, and rain gauge. We placed our thermometer near our chicken coop door to measure the variant temperatures that affect egg production.
