I love spring, the cows went out this morning in their small hold spots to graze while we wait for the pastured area to dry so we can put the fencing back up. Now that my animals are all tended to I have come in to have breakfast, then we'll move our chickens out to their s…

Hello Everyone, 

Things on the homestead are moving in the forward direction, our piglets are growing, the chickens continue to lay more eggs than we need and we are enjoying give some out to folks that can use some help. I bumped the cow yesterday and felt a little one in there, so we are antic…

WHAT WE EAT COULD BE KILLING US.

To many of us are eating ourselves to death and don't even know it. Every day the food  we eat could very well be killing us at a slow pace, little by little without us even knowing we are doing it.

SAVING AND EARNING ON THE HOMESTEAD.

We can always be assured that spring will come, and we need to be ready. One thing I have learned in the past couple of years to help me stay focused is to keep a running To Do list. My wife bought me one for a couple of dollars last year and I leave it on my desk in sight so I don't forget to use i…

TIME TO PLAN THE GARDEN AND RAMBLE.

 Something I have learned over the years is spring comes at a different time for everyone. For me to tell anyone when to plant isn’t something for me to do. What I prefer to do is encourage people to look at the seed catalogs they are getting by the dozens in the mail right now and think as big as y…
