Brussels sprouts and cabbage varieties we’re growing in 2023. We don’t need many Brussels sprouts but we eat a lot of cabbage. I’d like to have home-grown cabbage for fresh eating for as much of the year as possible. We’re growing old favorites and testing new-to-us varieties.
Broccoli and cauliflower! I’d like to be able to put enough of these in the freezer that we can stop buying them (except for raw eating out of season). With that in mind, I am trying to, personally, learn to grow them, and we’re testing out different kinds.
So, if you’re like most of us you’re setting some goals for the new year right now. But are those goals realistic? That is, do they actually match reality? Are they things that you can actually potentially achieve? Let’s look at some of the things we should be asking ourselves (note to self) to filter our wild dreams into potentially doable goals.

November is “comfort month” around here, at least this year. That’s because I’m running a Homemaker’s Club at my church and our “curriculum” (also known as monthly themes) is based on The 12 Principles of Home Management. We’re on principle #2 (Comfort) in November. Last month was Safety (so I’m still thinking about both). I figure I can accomplish more on the home front, the job front, and the church front if I’m not trying to focus on so many completely different things. So it’s comfort all around!
Here are a couple of ways you can improve both the safety and comfort of your home.
A home should be comfortable, a place you actually want to be. And not just you, as the homemaker, but every member of the household. Comfort involves things like creativity,beauty, flexibility, quality, cleanliness, and peacefulness. Perhaps most importantly, it’s the absence of discomfort and distress!
