Hey Guys

I've been following your blog for years now, but I spend a lot more time on YouTube these days and don't make it to your blog as much.

I'd love to see different parts of your days through VLogs. I realize adding editing video to the homestead tasks is probably a lot of extra work but we (your fans) don't need 20 hours of video each month. Might be cool to do a weekly roundup as a vlog 4-6 minutes. You could certainly pull YouTube viewers to your page.

Jimmy Diresta has been doing some interesting VLogs you might want to check out

I'd be interested to know, how your fuel consumption is working out with the Kubota? Is it fitting in with your budget, or are you finding you have to increase your income/decrease other expsenses to cover it?
