I thought I would chime in on the commune discussion if no one minds. We do not live on a commune by any stretch of the imagination, but we live in a small community where almost all of our neighbors are relatives (pretty much for miles). My dh's family has owned the land for over 200 years, and we have a family/community farm that we all work. I say all... most of us work - but that's a later discussion!

It really is nice, and I am glad to be here, but it was a REALLY hard adjustment for me. I was raised in a big city, and when we moved here it was culture shock to say the least. I love it now! For one, our mortgage is half what our rent was!

There are definitely disadvantages, everyone knows everything about you, your kids, your dogs..... and they all have an opinion. But maybe that is just family! Good luck with your decision. That's a tough one.

Thanks for letting me "butt-in"!

Oh and Tabrizia, just so you know you're not the worst mother ever - when I was 7 months prego with dd I fell down the stairs while getting on to ds for running down them!!!
i like the sounds of where you live...i'd love a situation like that! what kind of farming do you do?

(i tried to quote but erased it--oops!)
stmarg--cute pictures! she has beautiful eyes! and her and zenon have very similar hair. sounds like a fun trip.

We're gluten/seitan maniacs around here but my neighbour makes cornbread with no wheat. He also uses coconut milk in it :. Annie's now has cereal made with corn and oat flour.

yea- luckily kaylo loves cornbread and i've been making it without wheat. i'll have to look for cereal.... oh wait. but we can't do oats right now either. i'm hoping he'll be ok with spelt and oats when we reintroduce it. then i can make good bread/etc for him.

I know a friend of mine who has celiac disease and she makes really good cookies/pancakes/cakes with a mix of 1/2 corn flour and 1/2 any other type of flour (she uses rice flour, potato flour and some other kind, I forget). It was hard at first to find the winning combination. She uses a lot of pre-mixed flour as well... Have a look here: http://glutenfreegoddess.blogspot.co...-tips-for.html

Thanks for all the welcomes ladies!

On the family farm, our major crops are potatoes and corn, but we do a lot of other things too. In our own garden (about an acre) we have a little of everything. This year we planted, sweet taters, tomatoes, chili, bell, sweet and cayenne peppers, cucumbers, squash, zuchinni, eggplant, sweet corn, purple hull peas, green beans, okra, cantaloupe, watermelon and cabbage!

I can't wait for fresh vegetables!

I know that some of you ladies use cloth diapers, anyone know of a diaper cover that has a high rise? We have a little bit of a unique situation, Lizzie has a vesicostomy (urinary diversion through her belly), sounds weird I know, but basically I need a tall diaper cover. Any suggestions?

This would be a challenge for me. Can you do smoothies in the morning to fill him up? Polenta might be a good option, too. Mmmm, polenta :

Welcome, workjw! I'm doing some container gardening this year and just built my own little patio out back. DH will make me some raised beds, too. Can't wait to have my own veggies, too!

I found mother ease to have a very high rise. I'll try to think of others.

I have celiac disease and a wheat allergy. Needless to say, our home is GF.

Ronan eats whatever he wants for breakfast. Freeze dried blueberries, bites of my eggs (rarely, he doesn't seem to care for them), pieces of GF toast . . .

Keep trying muffins. There are some tasty coconut flour ones.
