Drove my husbands redneck truck to town the other day. Believe me, you would never know I was born and raised in Seattle when I sit behind the wheel of this truck. Driving this truck makes me feel like I was born in the country. That I grew up on a dirt road miles from anywhere. When I say Redneck Truck I mean a truck with a rusty hood & wipers that don't turn off…

These are the options for food preservation. They could also be used PSHTF if you prepped the resources need such as propane or wood. We have used a few and hope to use others in the near future. Canning I started Water Bath two years ago and Pressure Canning last year. There was the proverbial simple strawberry jam. Which, for me, never sets, so not simple.

Goats on the Homestead

Aren't they the CUTEST! It is apparently easier to eat when standing IN your food. Fonz on the left, Hawk on the right. There has been some discussion as to our intentions with these cuties. We've named them. If they are meant for the freezer you aren't supposed to name them. Truth being, we can't breed them with their mother. Maybe, if Jazz has a 's due in June. The Goat Whisperer. Boy Child really…
