One thing we hear a lot is that keeping up with weeding the garden can get too overwhelming and time-consuming.

We definitely understand as we’re just two years into our garden which was very neglected when we bought the property.

Getting control of the weeds and bringing them down to a manageable state can be tricky, but it’s definitely doable with a few simple tips.

Quitting my job to commit to homesteading was scary. It was a good paying job, but starting my modern homestead was more important to me than “working for the man!” Being debt free was a major step in getting to this point, but it’s still a complete leap of faith. God willing, and with His grace, I’ll succeed!

In this video, I sit down and share more about me and my story. Just a candid conversation about me, some of my fears about my journey, and what’s next.

Starting a farm, farmstead, modern homestead, garden, or even a permaculture food forest can be daunting. You know it’s going to take commitment and A LOT of hard work. Even then, you may still fail. No income, no insurance, and only myself to rely on; I talk candidly about how it feels to takes the leap of faith.
