I’m going to highlight homesteading with chickens and some of the controversial issues that arise when keeping our feathered friends. These are some serious “hot-topic” issues in chicken keeping. They include winter keeping, incubating, bedding and feeding. Almost every aspect of chicken keeping. These are the things that really get poultry keepers hopping.
As any gardener knows, the harvest is the best part of gardening. When it is time to reap what you’ve sown, a basket will do, but a harvest apron is even better. Plus, it doubles as a gardening apron to keep those knees clean when you’re working in the soil.
Think about how much a roll of paper towels costs. Do you try to save a few buck by buying the cheap or store brand paper towels? For just a couple bucks you can make 30 unpaper towels. And the best part? It requires no fancy sewing machine and it takes almost no time at all.
Here is a do-it-yourself laundry detergent that is powerful and performs better than any commercial laundry detergent I’ve ever used. The best part? I know how to pronounce everything that goes into it and being powder, there is no melting, pouring, sitting or other obnoxious steps. Measure, mix and you’re good to go.
As much as I would love to wander through fields of corn and have meandering paths through plots of carrots, peas and potatoes, that just isn’t a reality where I live. Where I live is less than 1/4 acre. That is where container gardening comes into play. Container gardening is turning over a new and updated leaf now that people are going back to growing their own food.
