See how we installed a dryer vent in the middle of our house During our mobile home reno, figuring out how to install our dryer vent in the middle of our house proved to be a bit of a challenge. Before giving up and changing the house layout, again, I found a product that allows […]
We Started a Family Vlog We’ve started vlogging over on our YouTube channel. Yes, I know. How could we let this happen? Well, here’s the thing, we’re not turning our channel into a vlog, we are adding additional content for those who would like to watch it. We are stepping up our video production game […]
Our 4-year-old son shot this video while helping me on the homestead.

How to thin a peach tree
How many peaches can I grow on a 3-year-old Harvester Peach tree? I asked this question on the Homegrown Liberty Facebook Group a couple days ago. While I didn’t get an answer in the form of a number, I was given some direction and this video is the result of said direction, most of which revolved around aggressively thinning the peaches.
Last year the peach tree gave me one peach. This year, I dumped some leftover comfrey fertilizer on it I made last year. That’s some good stuff because I have over 37 peaches on the first branch I counted. I gave up counting at 120 peaches and was about half way through the tree.

Hey y’all. I wanted to give you a look at how the micro swale made it through the summer. It wasn’t until the end of summer that we got the water well up and running. The plants and trees did really good considering how little rain we received. The video’s a little longer than most so feel free to use the fast forward feature to get through it a little quicker.
East Texas Homestead Update (Mid 2015) Can you believe that this year is just about half way over? Me either! It this post, I’m going to give an overview of what’s been happening on the homestead. In some ways it feels like very little has happened in 2015 but when I start placing it all […]
