Check Out the Have-More Plan

A photo of Shannon SaiaWe're up to our eyeballs around here in some remodeling and repurposing of spaces, primarily the kitchen. And having had a few unexpectedly spring-like days of late – with one day last week even touching 70 degrees for a few minutes – I've been thinking of where on earth I'm going to start seeds next month, and how best to reorganize the kitchen for storing, processing and just all-around enjoying this year's harvest. Thoughts along these lines reminded me of an e-book I discovered a year or so ago that I thought I would share. It's called "The Have-More Plan" by Ed and Carolyn Robinson and it was written in the 1940s. Among other things is a chapter about setting up a "harvest kitchen." It's free, if you sign up for the newsletter at Harvey's, an online store selling homesteading supplies.

Cindy, no e book reader required. It's just a pdf file that you can download and print out! That's what I did. I didn't have an e-reader when I discovered this either. Thanks for stopping by!

Alas, I don't have an e-book reader on which to read an e-book. Or is it a receive-in-your-email type of read? Regardless, looking forward to seeing the completed remodeled, repurposed kitchen space. We will get to see, yes? Because those of us (me) who dream of a remodeled, repurposed kitchen must have inspiration to keep us dreaming. Enjoy your day, Shannon.

Shannon, I checked out Harveys and downloaded the Have more plan. The table of contents looks quite interesting and I'll be skimming the full document for the weeks end. Thanks for the tip. From brrrr cold 1 degree Nebraska have a great 70 degree day.
