February 12th is the birthday of theologian and journalist Cotton Mather  (1663–1728).
I’d like to make mention of a new homesteading blog that has been launched by “Hazel” Williamson, the wife of SurvivalBlog’s Editor at Large Michael Z. Williamson. Hazel’s blog is written with great wit and candor. Therein, she describes the trials and triumphs of raising heritage commercial rabbits for meat. Her current breed of rabbit is the Silver Fox. She also raises poultry. The blog is titled “Hazel’s Bluff Farm & Rabbitry “, and subtitled “Microfarming for Sanity.” Be sure to check it out. I found one January post  is a good starting point.
