Homesteading video: Fish from Man Made Pond


So I feel a bit like “I’ve been gone and now I’m back”…hello again!  🙂  It’s been such a busy several months.  Kids are in more and more activities, busy with church, new job, garden…the blog has taken a back seat.  I’m thankful for a Facebook friend who has refueled my love for homesteading…and I thought I’d share some videos that he has shared with me.

This one is cool…fishing in their man made pond.  I’m wondering if any readers have done this?  We have 10 acres near where we live, and I’d like to tackle this as a project one of these years.  We are surrounded by farmland though, and I’m speculating as to what ickiness would eventually work its way into the pond if we did such a thing.  If anyone has personal experience or input, I’d like to hear it.

Anyhow, this woman has many videos on You Tube…if you want more, look up “Misty Prepper.”


Off Grid/Homesteading Video


A friend told me about these videos – the daughter of Carla Emery of the “Encyclopedia of Country Living” fame has multiple informational videos on You Tube re:  off grid living and homesteading.  They were fun to watch…a girl can dream.  Thought I’d share.   I want their yurt. 🙂



“Back to Eden” Garden Tour


Almost mid-February….AND I’M ITCHING TO GARDEN.  We are looking into a couple of potential new gardening ventures, and I had the “Back to Eden” documentary recommended to me by a fellow Christian gardener.  I thought I had it on You Tube, but as it turns out, I only had the “Garden Tour”.

Any which way, it was so much fun to see Mr. Gautschi’s little bit of heaven. 🙂  It is amazing!  Especially when it’s cold and icy here.  So I thought I’d share:

He has a lot of wisdom about what I’d call Biblically-inspired gardening and homesteading, and makes some really great points that I had never given thought to before based on Creation.  He is also an advocate for no-till gardening, which has intrigued me for awhile, so I’ll be watching more of You Tube videos about him and his methods.

I haven’t checked it out yet myself, but if you’re interested I believe you can watch the original documentary on the website/link given at the top of this post.

The countdown begins to seed starting in the house…one more month!!!!!  Woot woot!
