Cold Antler Farm

If you've never heard of Cold Antler Farm or Jenna Woginrich nows a good time to learn about this fiesty farmer doing the homegrown boogey. Check out her blog @ http://coldantlerfarm.blogspot.com.

I personally find her story inspiring - she's the reason I've given over to my… Continue

(for the version with links and pictures, click here)



Every homestead needs its Jack, the brindle bull dog that in one chapter of Little House you think drowns while they're fording the river in the covered wagon and you cry, maybe as recently as age 23, only to -spoiler alert-! get to the part where they hear a noise outside and it's Jack, he hasn't died, and he… Continue

Oh, Hi. I Didn't See You There.

So about two months ago I started a blog because I was (still am!) funemployed and crawling the fuck out of my skin. And, hey, do I understand machines and technology enough to get an RSS feed cooking on my page sans errors and a mess of struggle? No. Just, decidedly no. Hence, I'm going to try to do some hoodrat copy and paste business, and maybe dreams will happen. My blog is fairly tranny, but it's my attempt to… Continue

Recycling black plastic barrels - compost tumblers, rain barrels, etc.

Grow and Share has a supply of large plastic barrels we are recycling... These are a great size for rain barrels, just a little smaller than 55 gallon drums. If you don't need a rain barrel, they can be cut into halves and used as large planters. Or made into compost tumblers.



We are asking for a donation to help cover barrel/accessories/paint costs and to raise funds for next year's Grow And Share projects. All money raised will go directly to Grow And Share. Whatever amount you… Continue

Can I grow a vegetable garden in SW Florida?





I guess I have set myself up for failure one more time. This week I was very productive planning, gathering, building, and even putting seeds into earth. I have sewn parsley (grown mostly for the butterflies), beans (I love home grown string beans), endive and a mixture of lettuce.

Girls vs. Boys? Urban Homesteading is about the economy, community, and connecting to the land

GOOD Magazine has a fantastic article with a misleading headline: "Is Urban Homesteading Keeping Women Down?" Puhleez say those interviewed - including Kelly Coyne and Erik Knudsen from Homegrown Evolution - the gold standard of urban homesteaders.
