    Okay I just have to comment! Iโ€™m mostly vegetarian and to be totally honest I find many people who raise their own animals to be very meat focused... as in itโ€™s not a meal without meat. Iโ€™m okay with that not everybody needs to agree with me, but WOW how refreshing to hear someone say โ€œyou donโ€™t need a lot of meat.โ€ You donโ€™t! I have become even more in love with you guys just from that comment

    You are a big family on a homestead and risk confusing 161K of watchers. It is up to you if you want to change the name... but it might be easier to just make series on certain subjects. When you exhaust one subject you move onto another. I don't know... maybe you have a plan to make sure it doesn't confuse people. :) A wood slab vid would be great... I have to check and see if you did one already. The last few days have been bonkers, crazy and a little heavy.

    You can do variations and just have garlic and ginger in the honey, and or add things like cayenne pepper, apple cider vinegar, turmeric root and sage. Have you ever stored this a month or two in a cool dark place before using it? I bet it would super strong by then ~ but not necessary!

    silage is the word for you guys look it up but is there a place you could make it - around the world we put into a concrete pit under cover from rain and then cover with a tarp and weigh down with free tyres - it is fermented grass - or baleage or haylage depending where you are in the world and if someone close has a machine to make it that won't cost a arm and a leg - both of these are packed away green

    Just a thought. If itโ€™s possible could you do some โ€œnerd mathโ€ on cost of eg: eggs. How many chickens plus cost of feed for one year and average of eggs to feed the family for one year etc... They have totally taken all classes out of our schools on how to make ends meet and how to be self sufficient and how to budget to be able to raise pigs, beef, chickens and so on. And how to grow food. I hope this makes sense lol. Buying from store verses home grown.

    Thanks for your video, I heard about Moringa from a Jamaican friend who has sworn by it for years. This is a health staple in her country, they use it for every ailment you can thing of. After seeing your video and researching the benefits, I purchased mine from Amazon in the powder form. OMG, my arthritis pain and stiffness began to disappear after three days, I also noticed an increase in energy. It affects your appetite....after my third smoothie, I realized I wasn't hungry all day. Yes and Yes it WORKS! I am not paid to give my opinion, just want to share my success with this fantastic natural herb. Unless I suffer with side effects, I will be taking it forever. Go ahead and try it, you will be shocked! Best Regards

  • Maggie May Small

    I have tried some other homesteading sites and for one reason or another have left. Maybe didn't care for the people and their approach to people (1 example I felt like they though they had the way and I had no knowledge) I have been homesteading since later part of the 70's so have some skill and knowledge and was raised on one in the 60's. 2. One have have not un subbed from but watch depending on the subject = the one is a repeat of 1/4 of the content each day. I still watch several of them and you are part of that. So if I say there is something I am getting from it or just enjoyment. Right now I watch you and your name fits you so well, please consider not changing.

  • Roberta's Artistic Adventures

    I love your channel name and all content you put out, fluff included. You are a joy to watch, you teach about what you are learning, you are showing how to pull in resources via other homesteaders, and you are quite entertaining! Loved the footage of you in the vehicle with the door that doesn't open. Watching your process for ingress and egress was so funny! Learning about cutting a tree down and all those terms your friend taught was great too!

    I can't stand everything being digital now. I love having CD's and being able to listen to the whole album in order as they were arranged and meant to be listened to. A couple winters ago I had nearly every picture printed from my computer. I first transfer them off my phone regularly to have them backed up since phone go bad often and then have back up hard drives as well but it is hard to remember to do regular back ups of hard drives that are not connected to computer.
