Welcome to The Part-time Green Prepper!

I read a variety of blogs of stay-at-home moms who home school their children, prepare every food item from scratch, prepare for emergencies, have removed all dangerous chemicals from their homes, recycle and compost nearly everything they use, live frugally and are nearly self-sustaining due to their large gardens and farm animals. I would love to do all of those things. However, that is just not possible with the place I am in life right now. My husband and I both work full time. I am trying to figure out how much I can reasonably do with the time I have available. This blog will describe some of my attempts at prepping, preparing home-made natural foods for my family, growing our own food and going green. I know many of you will do all of these things better than I do, but I am trying and that's the best I can do!

Warmer weather is here!

I have a guy who promised to drop some pallets off at my house soon. I hope he does--they will be for my compost bin! I am going to build it right next to the garden so it will be convenient. I am also going to get some manure from the neighbor who has alpacas and horses on Friday. I got started on the this weekend and plan to work on it some more today since I took a day off from work. I also have to take Hunter in to the vet and go pick up our beef order from the processing plant-an hour away. That should take up my whole day off. I cannot wait until summer vacation! It's really too bad teachers can't work from home! :)
