Fall gardening

 Its fall time and there's plenty of things to do to get ready for next years garden.  Never gardened before?  Follow me and do what I do.  I will post the activities I do as close to the time I do them so you can garden with me.  My gardening system is based off of ruth stout's ideas.  It requires very little weeding and no watering.

How to make lip balm

Making your own lip balm is pretty easy.  Just heat up some oil and melt some beeswax in it and you've got it.  Serously, that's all there is.  However you can spice things up by puttin in some quality ingredients.  Here's how I make my lip balms for Fitzpatrick Farm.  I'm also providing a resource list of where to get all this stuff at the bottom.  A list of my flavors and how to order my lip balm is down there too.
