In this episode of the Farmish Kind of Life podcast, I talk about my upcoming new project The Lifesteaders, how it’s the same as and different from A Farmish Kind of Life, and where we all go from here.
For those of you stressing out about how much you’re doing or how it all fits with “homesteading”, this piece is all the perspective you need. <3
Let’s dig into (and get real about) the fallacy of self-sufficiency and self-reliance. For all our talk about “we can do it ourselves, we don’t need anyone”… we actually need other people in ways we don’t even realize.
Let’s start the busy homestead season off right by making some big lists…and then letting them stare back at us to show what we’ve really got on our plates.
Today we’re learning how to grow a tasty treat for your chickens—sprouts! They’re easy to make and you probably already have all the materials in your house already.
Remember back in the days when big family get-togethers were a thing? Let’s talk about how (or if) we can go back to making those our normal. Spoiler alert: I don’t think the answer is as simple as we pretend it might be.
