This year, 2020 has been like no other.
We have operated with a mindset of modern homesteading for a number of years. For us, modern homesteading means to practice as many of the skills of our ancestors as possible while still using modern conveniences.
For example, even though most of the bread we eat is made right here at home, often it is a bread machine doing the work.
Through this pandemic, others are beginning to embrace these same skills. We support their efforts. Their new skills however are impacting our practice of self-sufficiency. There have been waves of flour shortages, yeast shortages, and now it is canning lids and freezer bags.
Now we are reaching into our skill of flexibility and finding work arounds.
In this episode you will also hear us discuss the benefits of our Gert’s Garden Turmeric balm. This is a story of personal experience with this product. If you would like to get your own, you can order online or request when you visit the farm on Fridays.
Thanks for listening.
Until next time…
Donna, Julia and the Felines
