Introducing chicks to the mix

Alright so I haven’t been able to post for a little while because I’ve been busy with super fun work and real life. However, the best part about it is in between I am growing a ton of plants indoors getting them ready for outside and we have baby chickens!

There’s a link to let you take a good look at what we have been so busy with. Besides the grow room and the chickens we are busy building the chicken pen and Coop.

It takes a lot to be somewhat self-sufficient but the rewards are awesome. The calories lost are great. And the positive mood that you get from working on something that will help your entire family well that has an unknown price tag.

Killing boredom with productivity 

Growing indoors is so easy – even I have done it!

Not to gloat, but I have done the best with what little time I have in between work.

If you feel like winter is the destroyer of all hope for gardening and doing something positive with your time, then I am here to tell you that there are a few things that you can do to stop that feeling

Forgive the voice to text but I needed to get this out there. I have 27 plants growing in downstairs office room. It took two extra tables that cost 30 bucks and to grow lights that are just CFLs which cost $15 a piece plus shipping.

 a lot of these plants are now six inches tall, two of them are trying to flower, one of the plants is three foot tall and is a Survivor from last year’s  pepper crops.

I will be doing a lot more of exploring the indoor growing with some of them staying here around inside the room and not being transferred out into the garden. Of course for longer-term growth some plants need to be indeterminate and this also gives you an opportunity to stagger your plant growth for the determinant such as most large tomatoes.

We want to know….

Homesteading covers a broad range of subjects that we want to discuss with you.

  • Family
  • History
  • DIY
  • Gardening
  • Water Storage
  • General Psychology
  • Awareness
  • Finances and saving money

You control what comes in and out of your home.

You are responsible for protecting your land, rights, and that home you call yours.

You can change how you spend money and time in a more effective way.

We can help!

We can also grow together. Nobody is the queen or king of knowledge in these subjects – if they were, they’d probably be teaching it somewhere for way too much money! Hah.

So, let’s share ideas that’ll help save money and time. Let’s find more ways to keep positive in an at times, dreary landscape. Let’s be the best we can with what little time we have here.
