I was given an old sewing machine, I am lost on figuring it out...I think it needs 'tuning' do you tune sewing machines? Don't you have to grease and oil them? It seems to work fine but sticks here and there and I think this is why...May need to schedule a personal sewing class with you - LMAO Sewing is one thing I have never been good at, and have always wanted to be able to accomplish - may just need to buy a new sewing machine and play around and teach myself.
Yeah theres a guy up the road who has a big field he grows a ton of sweet potatoes among other things, if I liked sweet potatoes I could get them dirt cheap from him.
Oh my goodness Beth, what are they? besides ducks I mean. lol
barn yard mix.
could be a mix of:
Golden 300 Layers
eta: and that box...........is now a soggy mess. I just washed and disinfected a rubber tote.
If I use sand in my coop, do I need certain quality sand?
When do mallards feather out and if I clip their wings could they still fly over a 6ft fence?
SOS - I know absolutely nothing about tuning a sewing machine...depending on the kind, it could be simply adding oil or something much more complicated. I can barely change a toilet seat, so machines are NOT my forte!! LOL. As for sewing, I maintain, if you can read a ruler, you can sew just fine...if you cannot read a ruler, well, measuring will be a challenge, but you'll still sew fine. LOL. My mother can't read a ruler to save her life, and yet she managed to make many many outfits for us as children (sadly, she had a brain aneurysm and that affected her memory so she no longer remembers how, but you see my point) so I will quote her and say, "if I can do it, anyone can do it!!" lol.
BHep - I will keep you posted. I always blame my machine...that's why my seams are NEVER straight. That is usually my second excuse, but I can't use being left handed as an excuse for sewing, so it has to be the machine's fault. So when in doubt...blame it!! LOL I won't tell!!
Thank you for the heads up on the sweet potatoes everyone!! My DD LOVES sweet potatoes and I thought I'd try growing them rather than always buying them. Now I know it's worth a shot!! I have a double project this weekend then...to make 2 small "tater" boxes...I guess I'd better label them so I know which is for her and which is for us!! LOL. Thanks again everyone!! Further proof BYC is THE place to go!!
They are adorable...
Probably not over a 6' fence. I clip one wing on my muscovies and they can't go over the fence unless up on the hill where they can get some lift but thats uaually only one of the girls.
