Great looking garden WildE :)    We've had a couple of killing frosts here in the last 2 weeks, down to about 25F, so pretty much everything in our garden is dead now.   Got most of it harvested already, but still have carrots to get in before the ground freezes for winter.
 
Anyway, thanks for keeping up a great thread, keep rocking it lady :)


I've been thinking about you lately buddy I've subscribed to a few YouTube channels about Homesteading in Alaska and I've been thinking is my buddy doing this in his garden already... I think one just moved to Alaska maybe a couple years there.. I can't remember but I will post a couple videos maybe you can get chatting with them... Alaska is a totally different world, you need to find different ways to grow sometimes ;)

Nice stuff WildE.   Those folks from Willow have a very nice garden set up, and I also like their chicken run.  

 

Through I have to question why the guy feels it necessary to wear a glock in a combat holster while putting up fencing.  I actually see that kind of behavior quite a bit up here.  Some folks think they need to wear all the props to play the part of the rugged frontier homesteader.   I strongly support their right to own, and use firearms, but that doesn't mean you need to wear a hog-leg in the grocery store.  

 

(sorry about the rant :)

Lol no prob... Some out there when I was in North British Columbia they were scared of bears especially if they just moved there ;) I just used the buddy system many people walked with a dog I even do that if I walk alone here we only have black Bear but I do not want to surprise a bear...

There is a few other channels but I can't remember them all yet I will post when I can find out who lives where I added so many homesteading channels lately I have to get to know them all

Here is a family I adore down to earth people

LOL :) 

 

As much as the cold can get to my old bones, I'm pretty sure the heat and humidity of Florida in the summer would kill me outright!

 

I'll keep our long dark winters, and they can keep their hurricanes.  :)

This is getting to the end of my garden this year... We still have beets and carrots to pull out and some mallow seeds to put in but for the most part we are done... I have some pretty frosty photos to show you

OK there is still the hedge to finish mulching but the potatoes and garlic is planted.... It's more rabbit work to finish and the indoor garden to get cleaned up and my front porch needs a door.... Lots of garden work but not really in the garden.... Hopefully I can get cought up on all the work around here

I hear you WildE, lots of work this time of year.  Racing against old man winter :)

 

We are running that race here as well.  We spent yesterday processing tomatoes into tomato sauce,  smoking, and dehydrating peppers for chili powder, dehydrating apples,  and chopping peppers and onions for hot pepper relish.   We worked hard to grow the little bit of produce that we get, and you've got to work hard again to put it up so that its not wasted.

 

Today will be another load of peppers through the smoker, and cooking and canning the hot pepper relish.  Probably wont get more then that done today, as I have to go into town and get some things, but at least its still a day with some progress.  It seems the world moves forward with or without you, so standing still is actually loosing ground :)

I agree I will take getting small bit done than nothing... Waiting 4 the cold rains to stop so we can get the snow roof on the rabbits... Might have to wait a few days but we can get some garden work done maybe

Ya growing them and processing everything takes so much work but we are doing it the way we want to eat it... At least we know what goes into all of it...
