For the Yard/Garden:

Herbs – medicinal or culinary.  Currently seeking Cilantro, Dill, Parsley & Chives or . . .?  We have Greek Oregano (perennial) to offer, BTW.

 Vegetable plants:  Pretty well set at this time but wouldn’t mind finding some garlic, more onion sets & more seed potatoes – long-storing varieties.  Blueberry bushes; Strawberry plants; Asparagus starts are some others we’d like to grow , eventually.

Fruit Trees: apple, peach, pear, apricot . . . will consider others;

Tools: Lawn Sweep/Grass catcher; Reel Mower; Rakes; Shovels; small gardening/hand tools; hoses & attachments; Extension ladder  

 

For the Kitchen:

Appliances: Kerosene Cookstove (appropiate for everyday, household use versus the teensy, little camping ones); Stand mixer w/ attachments; Food processor w/ attachments; Electric Smoker; Electric Meat Grinder (heavy duty); Electric skillet; Blender; Grain mill; Weck Electric Canner or Turkey Fryer (that can pasteurize several gallons of milk at once).

Canning Supplies: Newer/good quality model pressure cooker/canner; Jars & lids are always winners; canning funnel; jar lifter; 

Home-grown/homemade goodies for our freezer & pantry (canned, frozen, dehydrated . . .)  Produce/herbs, homemade salsa, jam/preserves, maple syrup, breads, pastries, freezer meat (currently all set on beef & pork, but would be particularly interested in chicken or rabbit at this time), etc.

Portable-type housing: Quonsets, calf hutches; pickup truck caps (a/k/a: "toppers", "camper-tops", "camper shells", etc.) - don't have to be pretty or perfect - just "functional" enough to serve as the roof for moveable livestock shelters, etc.!
