Kale close up

Kale close up

Our kale seems to stop growing at this time of year, but it makes up for it by getting a little bit sweeter with each cold snap.

Unrelated to kale -- Congratulations on making it to year 9! Discovered your blog a little over a year ago and have been wondering when you'd switch over to year 9 :) Thanks for sharing all your invaluable, practical insight into homesteading. From a beginner!

Marc --- Thanks for reading! As for the banner --- I really should have changed it at the beginning of September, but life got busy (and I wasn't quite sure which pictures I wanted to use). I hope you like the changes! :-)

As a reader from late year one maybe two, congrats on starting year 9. I don't comment much anymore but still follow you both here and on Fb. I continue to enjoy the window into your homestead. Glad that the waterer business has afforded you a few things. Wish the worm bin school cafeteria thing would have worked out better. Still waiting on the swinging bridge. Glad you saved the old barn. Was proud to see you change over from chicken tractors to free range. Even though you convinced me to build a couple that are still in use today only in an urban environment and not here (with your waterers built in). Said all that, just to say I have enjoyed the journey with you and Mark. Thank you for posting all your fails and triumphs with equal enthusiasm. I have learned so much from both. Thank you again Erich

One very unique homestead, $1,500 per acre, the opportunity of a lifetime
