My garden, and my dad’s garden especially, EXPLODED with ripe tomatoes just this past week or two. He brought me this HUGE box of tomatoes! Finally! I have to say! But I have been so busy that I haven’t been able to can things like I normally would. So….I have turned to fermenting my produce recently. Here’s why: Fermented food is GREAT for you! It contains tons of healthy probiotics that heal and support your body. Also, it’s just a very natural process. Fermentation is caused by natural good bacteria and yeast found in our environments. Using any kind of extreme heat (as in canning) kills all the probiotic goodness. There is a time and place for canning, but why not consider fermentation?

It's been my dream to have a homestead for a LONG time. Finally, we bought a property about an hour out of Las Vegas, NV in the high mountain desert. It's small...but it's working. What I have realized is that you can homestead anywhere....even in an urban environment. When I look back now on my life in Las Vegas, I recognize I've been homesteading in various ways for years! We've just expanded, that's all! Our property is 3/4 acre of desert land, and we are making this work! It's so exciting! I'm dedicated to learning with and sharing with other like-minded people...all about being self-sufficient!
