Happy Spring!

The best season of the year has officially sprung in our neck of the woods, the time for putting in gardens, ordering those baby chicks and dreaming about those summer and fall harvests. So I'm sending you a few extra tips to help you in your plans and dreams. So take a break from all that garden work, fix yourself a lemonade and read on!

But On a Personal Note...

I've been battling health problems and have not been able to work on this website, as well as other projects as much as I would have liked. I am starting to recover, however, and will soon be back up to full speed.

You Can Build a Chicken Tractor - The Book Will Soon Be Available!

This handy guide will take you step by step through the process of building your very own chicken tractor, with lots of great information, such as the tools youíll need, how to acquire free wood, how to get your chickens and brooder (almost) for free, and lots of tips on how to care for your flock.

Both the ebook and the print edition will be available in April, 2009.

Homesteading and Chickens

Like love and marriage, the two go together like a horse and carriage. Here are some reasons why acquiring a small flock should be one of the first things you do when you start homesteading.

So You'd Love to Homestead, But...

You donít have that acreage yet, you say? Well, never fear! You can pursue the self-reliant life anywhere, even if you live in an apartment complex. Homesteading is a state of mind just as much as it is a location. Here are some tips to get you started.

Gardening Back to Basics

Plants grow best in loose soil that isnít trampled down. Adding raised beds to your garden are an investment that ensure your plants have the best possible growing environment. Here are some tips.

Would you like to have a more productive and bountiful harvest? Feeding your plants with the best, possible soil is the most important thing you can do. Here are some tips on composting to give your garden a powerful boost.

And finally, mulching your plants will ensure they stay warm and protected from the elements.

And as always, happy homesteading!
