Milk Carrier

One of my milk customers brought over some of his nifty, homemade milk jar carriers. 

If you have ever tried to keep large jars of milk upright in a vehicle, you will understand why a carrier is needed.

When not in use, I keep it out where we can enjoy it's worn, rustic look.
I would love to have one to accommodate 4 half gallon jars.

 "A weed is just a plant growing in the wrong place, at the wrong time."

They get a bad rep, those poor weeds.  They are sprayed, pulled, smothered and burned.  Every gardener works hard towards a weed free garden.  I know there has been many discussions in our home about how to deal with weeds in the pasture.  But surely they are there for a reason...right?  Why would God put something on this Earth just to cause us aggravation?

The more research I do, the more I realize that I am overlooking a gardening resource.  Weeds can tell us about the condition of our soil.  They can prevent erosion, bring up nutrients, and conserve moisture.  I would love to share an article that I came across that I actually printed out.

Weeds: Don't Shoot the Messenger

Fantastic reading.  I hope that you get as much useful information out of it as I did.
