    DH constructed this little greenhouse while I was away visiting my grandchildren. He used both new and old supplies. It’s really warm in here.

    SHTF Waste Management

    Exactly. After Hurricane Ida, so many people donated laundry detergent, shampoo and dishwashing liquid in plastic bottles that some stuff will last me a long time but I am anxious to start making soap again and I do wanna have laundry, shampoo and dish bars and maybe offer some as gifts to help...

    Frustratedearthmother's Journaling Journey

    Yes we pretty much always have pork to add to venison or goats meat. I find the taste similar. I don’t have a recipe. DH and his friends just mix the meats together according to whatever is available and they buy a special package of seasoning from one of our local grocery stores for green onion...

    Coffee's Ready, Come and Sit on the Porch

    Oh man…. I don’t think I could handle not having complete freedom to farm. At least a chicken tractor with outside nesting box to drag around and cut grass.

    Frustratedearthmother's Journaling Journey

    I suppose there might be some benefits to having hornless goats but tell you the truth when I need to grab a goat, a set of horns is what I aim for. I believe we have a few pregnant does but we have two extra bucks 😔. We might as well make sausage.

    free pigs

    Our current free pig. We just give him our table scraps and if we don’t have anything else he gets a little corn but the neighbors also been walking over with scraps.

    free pigs

    John Seymour claims that pigs are noble, smart animals and have a place on all small holdings because they are useful at converting all kitchen scraps and garden wastes into fertile soil or methane in a digester and for tilling the ground before you plant the potatoes. As for potbellies, DH...

    SHTF Waste Management

    John Seymour said that the garbage truck should seldom need to pass on a self-sufficient holding. What I think more people should strive for is to not create garbage to begin with. I think maybe go with stocking up stuff in mason jars instead of just buying everything in in cans is a start...

    Are we living our dream?

    I am sure I will eventually turn them in for recycling but if I can get a few meals out of them, I might as well. I really gotta go in the backyard and take a few pictures of what DH has put together. He said he made a hoop house greenhouse in one day. I hung a batch of clothes and went to it...

    Are we living our dream?

    Well after a week at the fort I am back home. I wasn’t feeling well so I tested and it was then negative. I had chills and DIL checked my temperature which was only 98.2 but I don’t know because I was tired and freezing cold. I forced myself to do anything I thought needed to be done. I went to...

    Are we living our dream?

    2nd night at Fort Polk. Trying to spend as much time with the kids as possible. DIL is feeling better and getting around and I gotta hand it to her...she is trying hard to make sure she doesn’t get the kids sick. KN95 and hand sanitizer all the time. I just took my first tub bath since before...

    Are we living our dream?

    Do much easier said than done!! Yesterday was torture. So we went to my old house and DH found a few things inside to bring home. I located my sewing patterns and a few other treasures. We bought 2 big rabbits for meat which DH paid enough money that we should have almost been able to call them...

    Are we living our dream?

    I always feel like I earned an A+ after I manage to put fresh sheets on the bed. Had trouble sleeping last night and I know it’s getting late but I think the sheets will help me relax. I was just reading to settle down a bit and wait for the feet to stop grieving me. I can dream of bantams and...

    Are we living our dream?

    Hi. I don’t try to be so depressing. I have good days and then trying days and just hope more for one more than the other 🤷‍♀️ My sleeping pattern has been really messed up lately. Last night I got really sleepy fast and I was out early...maybe too early because I got up at 1:30AM. I started...

    Are we living our dream?

    DH is creating an addition to the house. He is working alone. He says it’s gonna be an art studio. Yeah....he is talented. Some of his art hurts my brain and I can’t look at it. When he is in pain he just draws stuff and from far it looks like one thing but looking closely you see he had to draw...
