Well it’s good to be back. In this episode I discuss what’s been going on here at the homestead in the absence of the podcast.
*The fun times I’ve had with the rabbits and why I’m looking at raising livestock as more than just a way to provide meat.
*The garden and why building good soil is the most important element if you want to avoid watering even during a class 4 drought and 110 degree heat.
*The amazing production of just a two year old food forest.
*Why can’t I attract birds? The one disappointing spot in the garden.
*Chickens – where reality and theory clash really hard. It sounds romantic to free range them until you realize we’ve spent millenia breeding the wildness out of them. But I’m going to try something that I think will help.
*What is life like at 700 square feet? And why building your own home is not easy at all but it sure is worth it!
