That smell is in the Its also getting colder, bacteria, flies and the like are getting slower and less prolific. On the East coast Fall is an incredible time of the year with apples to be picked, cider to be had and horror flicks to be watched. Who could ask for anything more, not to mention archery season opens up! There are some standard preparations that should be taken at this time of the year Continue reading Fall Food Preservation!→
Katzcradul had so many great comments about last weeks show…listeners wishing she would share more. She heard you, and she going to do a second installment. This week on the Homestead Honey Hour, she will continue her look back on last years’ growing season, acknowledging both the defeats and the victories. Every year, the garden has its challenges, but last year they abounded. She will discuss what she learned, and the changes she’ll be making this year, based on her experiences and observations. Listeners are invited to call in and share what they learned last year and to discuss how that will impact their own gardens this year. Katzcradul will also discuss keeping a gardening journal and a food preservation log. (Which she didn’t have time to get to last week.) Join her for what promises to be a show full of helpful ideas for the upcoming gardening season. “How does your garden grow” first show click here!

For much of the country, it’s the END of gardening and canning season. And many of us are ready for a break from the endless gardening, (watering!) harvesting, and preserving we’ve been doing these last few months. But it’s never too early to start thinking about, and planning next year’s harvest. I have a few ideas to share with you on how to better face the future challenges coming our way in regards to continuing to produce quality, healthy nutritionally sound food for our families. We are all going to have to become more efficient with, and better stewards of, our resources as the perfect storm of weather, rising food prices, and economic “stresses” loom ahead.
So join me, Renée (aka Michigansnowpony) and my co-host Katzkradul this Thursday night, October 25th on the “Homestead Honey Hour” as we talk about not only streamlining our gardens for optimal results and nutrition, but also introduce to you the idea of “rotational canning” (and dehydrating) to help fill your pantry without the stress of trying to get it ALL done every year.
Whether you garden in the ‘burbs, on a country homestead, or get your produce from the local farmers’ markets to can and preserve, tune in and together, we can help make next season even more “fruitful”!

Join Noreen and Katzcradul on this Homestead Honey Hour the topic is all about books and information resources! As preppers and homesteaders we rely on good books to get our information. I know that I have personally amassed a huge reference library. Not to mention the myriad of websites and printed information that I have collected over the years in folders and binders and notebooks.
How do you save information for yourself to look back on? What are some of your favorite books that you just could not live without. What do you find yourself returning to over and over again when you need to find answers to your questions about gardening, cooking, food preservation and animal husbandry? It was a fun filled and informative hour of sharing and information that we all can use! Listen to this show in player below!
