*rubs temples* which reminds me.

Someone asked on a post a while ago who Donald’s sister is.

Short crash course if you don’t know anything about Disney Ducks;

She has different names depending on which country’s comics you are reading, but in english her name is usually ‘Della’ while in the Europe she’s generally called ‘Dumbella’. She and Donald are twins.

Della is Huey Dewey and Louis’ mom.

Long story short, she eventually couldn’t cope with the triplets any more after they set off a firecracker under their father’s chair and put him in hospital, so she effectively dumped them on Donald because “I can’t handle them any more. You take them for a while.”

If you think that’s messed up I’ll also add that Donald and his sister were not on speaking terms at this time (and remain so. Donald is also not on speaking terms with his parents).

After this, Della disappears from the picture. There’s been some problems by the comic writer’s trying to decide what to do but it is generally been decided not to elaborate on where Della is, because there is really only 2 answers. The first (and more likely) being that she just abandoned the triplets after leaving them with Donald. And the second is that she and her husband met with some accident which is why they never came back. The writers of most Disney comics decided both answers are too depressing to really explore when dealing with children, so they’ve never properly answered the question.

So that’s who Donald’s sister is.

What

Fucking Donald Duck lore, man.

Glass Gem is a unique strain of corn with kernels that look like pieces of rainbow-colored glass. Source

Carl Barnes, an Oklahoma farmer, started growing older corn varieties to connect with his Cherokee heritage. 

He isolated ancestral strains Native American tribes lost in the 1800s when they were relocated to Oklahoma.

Soon he began exchanging ancient corn seed with growers from all over the country, while simultaneously saving and replanting seeds from the most colorful cobs.

This eventually resulted in rainbow-colored corn.

When the rainbow corn mixed with the traditional varieties it created new strains, displaying more vibrant colors and patterns over time.

Glass Gem is a flint corn, so it isn’t really eaten off the cob. It’s usually ground into cornmeal and used in tortillas or grits, but it can also be used to make popcorn.

If you love corn and rainbows, seeds can be purchased online for about $7.95.

Self Sufficiency, 1970s

This is actually kind of like what I’m doing, except my animals aren’t for meat.

There’s actually a great book I found (of course you probably already either have it or know the material it covers) called The Backyard Homestead. It’s a good resource for anyone who wants to do this, regardless of the size plot of land you have. It covers planting seasons, canning, livestock, etc. but also has several plot layouts like the one above based on different yard sizes.

For example, if you have 1/10 acre:

I actually have several hundred acres to work with right now, but I would still be very interested in reading that. Thank you for the recommendation!

I have a few friends who have significantly less land but would be interested in doing some self sufficient farming. Also, I like to read everything I can on subjects, because you never know where you’re going to discover great advice.

 I will see if I can add it to my amazon wishlist for the next time I get a gift card!

I’ve read The Backyard Homestead and it’s great! Second the recommendation.

Also, this made me think of this, although it’s not entirely in the same vein: A Pattern Language is a book about architecture, mostly, but also building communities and increasing efficiency and self-sufficiency. I highly recommend it for anyone who is trying to build their own homestead, house, or intentional community. It’s pretty expensive, so I when I want to read it I borrow it from the local university library, but if you’ve got some spare funds it’s a truly incredible book. My father has worked in community-building & civic leagues (and lived on a farm) for most of his life and it’s one of his #1 recommendations as well. It’s just a really amazing and interesting book. @onlyashremains

I have The Backyard Homestead and I can’t recommend it enough. It’s been my top book for planning out my Garden these last couple of years and I’d probably be lost without it. If you’re seriously interested in this kind of stuff, I would also recommend 5 Acres and Independence, too… Even if you don’t have 5 acres to spare, I found the information invaluable, and the information in it is definitely adaptable to whatever sized plot you can spare. 

Getting more specifically into the Gardening and Farming aspects, I have a few more suggestions for reading material: 

  1. Pirating Plants is about Propagation, grafting, and Seed Saving; it’s old but it’s solid and I definitely recommend it if you want to Garden on the cheap- especially when it comes to “larger than average” farming. 
  2. The New Complete Guide to Gardening by Better Homes and Gardens. Despite focusing mostly on your typical garden flowers, it does have some great information in it about a few Herbs and Fruit varieties, and all around has a lot of valuable information in it. 
  3. The Complete Illustrated Book of Herbs by Reader’s Digest, as well- though this one is obviously about Herbs specifically. But it covers basic remedies, culinary uses, planting, harvesting and storing, and a lot of other information.

I also have The Backyard Homestead, as well as The Complete Illustrated Book of Herbs, and I’ve found both to be extremely useful in my gardening and in planning my future house’s yard plots. I’m also looking into picking up a number of books on forest gardening and building simple greenhouses.

Blow your MIND” Tomato Basil Pasta! - No Straining, just Stirring
Throw it all in the pot, INCLUDING the uncooked Pasta, and cook! - Bring it to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. The starch leaches out of the pasta and makes a rich, warm sauce for the noodles. The other ingredients cook right along with the pasta

Ingredients:
12 ounces pasta (Shown  Linguine)
1 can (15 ounces) diced tomatoes with liquid ( I used zesty red pepper flavor)
1 large sweet onion, cut in julienne strips
4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
2 teaspoons dried oregano leaves
2 large sprigs basil, chopped
4 1/2 cups vegetable broth (regular broth and NOT low sodium)
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Optional Parmesan cheese for garnish

Directions:
Place pasta, tomatoes, onion, garlic, basil, in a large stock pot. Pour in vegetable broth. Sprinkle on top the pepper flakes and oregano. Drizzle top with oil.
Cover pot and bring to a boil. Reduce to a low simmer and keep covered and cook for about 10 minutes, stirring every 2 minutes or so. Cook until almost all liquid has evaporated – I left about an inch of liquid in the bottom of the pot – but you can reduce as desired .
Season to taste with salt and pepper , stirring pasta several times to distribute the liquid in the bottom of the pot. Serve garnished with Parmesan cheese if desired.
