Free Energy and fresh mangos

Filed under: Uncategorized — urbandumpsterdiver @ 11:55 am

My frugal husband set up a  75 foot clothesline in our backyard this morning. Have done 2 loads of wash and they’re almost dry. Fresh from the sun. We both wish we would have done this months ago. With the hot Florida sun (and if you hang out clothes during the mid-day) your clothes will be ready in about an hour.

Saves electricity and keeps money out of the system. That means more money saved to be spent in the local community.

We have a mango tree that produces SUCCULENT mangos. We have so many we’re freezing them. Can be used later for mango as a dessert or even better mango margaritas! Yee haw. Some seeds have dropped on the ground. We will save those and gave those away to a local organic farmer. These are non-hybrid seeds that will produce many a harvest for a local person like myself.

  2. Oh Tammy, I wish I could send you some! This tree is about 15 years old. My hubby told me that the mangos get sweeter each and every year.
