About Life at Yellow Banks

Starting in 1971 is where it all began with a marriage and home then the addition of babies!   4 Boys to be exact!    And as a stay at home mom I began searching new ways to help compensate  our income to feed and care for us.

I had always worked the gardens as a child and had a good teacher; but firm and old school!   Some of which I still use !

So from Gardening came Canning and lots of extra self-sustaining ways, That I accomplished through self-study, family, friends and church.

I  love photography, crafts and cooking so you will see some of those also !

Urban Homesteading a Little on our 1/2 acre urban setting in a little River town on the Great Mississippi!!   with gardening, canning, home-made foods and no more pre mixed box’s!  Wanting chickens soon!  shhhh…

I love making my own cleaning supplies , deodorant , Lotions, Soap, Scent Tarts just to mention a few!   So many of these store items are full of chemicals and cancer causing agents with so many affects to our body that I can’t make myself use them anymore!

Along the same line my husband and I are eating more healthy and exercising  and feeling better!  Yes at times he is my tester on new healthy recipes and I will share a few of these also!
