Do not lift the lid while they are cooking.
1 ½ cup flour
4 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
2 tablespoon butter
1 egg
½ cup milk
Mix flour, baking powder, and salt. Then cream butter and egg together and add to flour mixture. Add milk, mix. Drop by Tablespoons into a pot of boiling water or the liquid your meat is cooking in. Cover pot and boil over med. heat for 12 to 15 minutes.

Water: don’t forget water storage.

1 drop of bleach in a 2-liter bottle will keep for a year in a darkened room or under something. Light is not your friend.
Already bottled water works also but is more spendy. Some have room for small to large barrels or 5 to 7 gallon water containers. Quite a few 5-gallon containers have a spigot that can be bought for them and screwed into them at the bottom.

It is raining today but we did manage to get the raised strawberry beds made before the bad storm hit. We did the herb beds yesterday. 

We had the high of 48 degrees today.

Here are pictures of some of the work from the last few days.
