a freind of mine gave me 12 half gallon mason jars that had pool shock stored in them. the lids where on tight and rusted through. pool shock when down the toilet as I live in the city. I have washed the jars thoughly with very hot water and a bottle brush but the stains will not come off even with heavy scrubbing.
Any ideas on what to use these jars for with rust stains?
Any ideas on how to remove the rust stains. I am curious what gasoline will do. my dad has a rust remover solovent.
I used to play a lot of video games,, No more. I have not owned a TV in more than 8 years now. sometimes I get sucked into youtube, but not so much any more. they only time I watch TV is when I go see my dad, and I watch/listen to it very breifly. I bacloy down watch/ read/listenm to the the news/ fear porn anymore.
when you drop the TV from your lifesyle, your productiity goes up a lot and causes you to value your time a lot more from what I found.
I have a half baked though. please help me hash it out.

On our family's ranch, customers buy a whole cow. a mobile butcher comes out and does the work. the left overs are the hide, head and a the insides. The rest goes to the meat locker to be processed for the customer. I like the cheeks and tongue, but have never cooked a whole head. we have a stainless steel pot that is maybe 15-20 gallons.
I am wondering what anyone's experiences has been cooking a whole cows head in a large pot. looking for cook times, prep times and how many pounds of meat you get. I would can this or freeze it.
curious what everyone's thoughts are on using black locust for a deck on an equipment trailer? a friend of mine wants to use oak but finding strait oak around California can be hard to come by. does anyone have any experience with this?
Spoke with a sales rep from Mission Clay in Oakland, CA. He is interested in alternative uses for clay pipe. Someone made a wine storage container out of a huge peice of their pipe and put it in The ground. They have factory seconds that I can look at.
Standard 5-gallon pails made by United States Plastic Corporation are 14.5 inches high, 11.91 inches in diameter at the top and 10.33 inches in diameter at the bottom. The buckets are slightly tapered for ease of stacking and separat
14.5 inches high. That’s the info I am looking for.
Look into rabbits with big ears. Also lock for ways to cool off your rabbits. I have 80% shade cloth around them and wool blanket to block out the sun completely. Going to plant sun flowers to block out more light and some trellising plants. Also look into misters.
First I got a wet/dry shop vac on Craigslist for about 80 bucks. Works ok but not great. Makes some noise but the rabbits tolerated it with the long hose. Hay got stuck where the hose meets the top. Became to much of a problem and that idea got scraped.
Second went to Home Depot to get a leaf blower sucker the ide was to suck it all up.Made to much racket and had to take it back.
Third I tried a little dewalt blower. Found it on Craigslist for 90 bucks brand new with no battery. Already have 3 batteries for it.used it on all 3 speeds at 100% and bunnies did not freak out. I can use this in many of the places around my house as well
Your friend has shared a link to a Home Depot product they think you would be interested in seeing.
Neighbor wanted to buy a rabbit from me, so I offered them One that I had just butchered, They declined. Seemed to not have an issue with me bucthing 40+ chickens a few days before and me giving them a whole chicken.
I have a fly problem and with all the bunny poop that had been accumulating. It got wet because of a water leak from their water feeder that has been fixed. Now I have this problem with what appears to be fruit flys. The neighbor is complaining and has not said anything to management yet.
Long story short is marjorty of the bunny poop, hay, urine, and water fall into a 100 gallon tote. This is for easy cleanup with a shovel. The structure that suspends my rabbit cages is made out of wood is propped up on PT 4x4 blocks that can be thrown away over time if they rot too much, they are free. Everything rests on a concrete slab.
I have a fly problem, but basically I have a manure problem. I don’t thing this the best way to manage my manure anymore. The worm bin is not too far away and can be put in with 1 or 2 stepsCurrently considering the following options
1. letting everything fall to the concrete then either vacuuming it up with a wet/dry shop vac then putting it a worm bin every day or every other day. I would buy this shop vac used on Craigslist.
2. Letting it all fall to the concert and getting a push broom and shoveling it up using a 4x4 as a back stop and putting that in the worm bin.
3. Collecting the manure and bagging it up.
Right now I am a fan of the vacuum idea. I could vacuum up flys too. Everything. Would be contained.
Can everyone else please give me your thoughts. Some pictures below. Let me k is if you need more information.
I had this exact same problem because I accidentally left the lid off my storage can. I keep my pellets in the bag. When I came out the next morning g only the bag was a little wet. I took the top layer off and tossed it in the worm bin. The rest where fine. It just depends on how much there is and how much h get wet. I would say if you keep them in The bag, check the bag for a mold smell before you feed them as you go through the bag and buy a new bag the same day just in case.
My bunny had babies about a week ago and I don’t have a grow out cage for them. What are the pros and cons of have it a rabbit tractor on the ground? I know that there is something going around which can kill rabbits which is why the farm that I bought them from would not let me go inside their rabbitry.
Some things that come to my head right now.
No poop to clean up
Can get diseases
Wild animals can get them
If not secured at the bottom can burrow.
This just what comes to the top of my head. Looking for more input on things I am leaving out.
I want a women that supports my career goal of being a firefighter, is on board with home schooling, living off the land as much as possible, wants to work from home. Seems hard to come by in California.
Today I moved my buck into a new cage. While doing some chores I noticed that he has was bleeding. The best way to describe this is that the wound is between 2 of his toes on his rear right foot. He is walking with a bit of a limp. Not sure what/ how to go about this. I have looked at the cage and have no idea how this happened.
I have 3 rabbits at my house. They are given water from a 5 gallon bucket that then feeds some small see through house that they drink from. The line has Alger growing in it. It has stopped but I water to clean it out in the most efficient way. I fill it up about once a week.
Right now the line and bucket are sitting in a bleach water solution. Anyone got any better ideas? Preferably leaving the watering system intacked
Found these traffic cones in a parking lot one day. Turned a traffic cone in to a kill cone. Going to try it on the next door or 2.
Put the chicken in the cone and measure by looking through the bottom and making a guess as to where to cut. You need a razor knife to cut the cone with. After cutting put the chicken back in to see if you need to cut some more.
My neighbor is a fencing contractor. He normally takes to the dump his old fence boards and 4x4s. Can I stake up the redwood fence boards 2 or 3 thick to use them as boarders for the garden. Is there something I am not thinking about.
Also there is a company down the street from me that bundles these boards and resells them.
My crossing cross chicks are about 14 days old now. Is there a rule for taking them off the light in regards to how old they are? This is the first time raising Cornish during the winter. Lows and highs are forecasted as 36/71 right now.
Today I found a 6 day old chick that would not open one eye and had an open sore on one foot. I decided to put it down with a hatchet and chopping block which took me a little while to do. Took me about 10 minutes to get over it
What is your process for coming to the conclusion that an animal won’t make it, and then having to put it down?
There was no waste. Chick went into a trap hoping to catch a raccoon that got 1 chicken that decided to roost too close to the wire.
I get my Cornish cross from metzer. I live kinda down the street from them. It does not take more than 18 hours for the birds to get from the Gonzalez post office to the Morgan hill post office. If they would let me pick them up it would be 2 hours of transport time.
Yes kill cones is what I was looking for. Wondering if I can use a traffic cone. What we found was that the somehow they break their wings because of the flapping when ushering a chopping block.
