By Kerry Audisho. As you probably already know, I am a huge advocate for growing your own and especially for buying food from local growers. With a network of small local growers, we will be able to build a sustainable, local food ecosystem right in our own backyards. But, it can only work if there are enough food growers.
By Anne-Marie Miller. Nothing says spring like getting baby chicks! Our wee puffs of fluff are chirping happily in the garage, toasty warm under a heat lamp. There is just nothing like that sweet sound they make. I am excited to report that I was able to get one of breeds I have been wanting for years: Silver Laced Wyandotte. New chicks mean more fresh eggs in our future.
Canning food is a favorite topic of Greg’s so of course he was excited to talk to Master Food Preserver Allison about her experiences and get some tips from her as well. As a bonus, they also chatted about her ‘too big’ garden and how this homestead is so rewarding for her family.
