Granny Fisher's Homestead

A short video to let you know what's happening on the homestead -- garden wrap-up and a few things I have growing for the fall, plus breeding season for the dairy goats. And I share my opinions on the upcoming presidential election in the U.S.

These are the four plants I've found easy to grow for me here in Zone 7. I confess I am not a good gardener, but these are plants I can grow, and I believe you can, too. These include a tomato, an herb, a pea, and a medicinal.

Ten days ago, I filmed my corn, which was blown down in a storm, and explained that the corn would stand itself back up all by itself. Here's what that same corn looks like 10 days later.
NOTE: This was initially going to be the intro to a longer video about what you should feed a goat, but the longer video did not work out, so look for a goat video in another day or two.

What should you do when a storm blows your corn down?

So last week my husband and I celebrated our anniversary by spending a day cruising the World's Longest Yard Sale. Extending over 600 miles, from Alabama to Michigan, the annual event features thousands of individual yard sales all along the route. Except for one item, everything we bought was $5 or less. Here's what we brought home.

As a retired journalist that was trained “old school,” I do not consider most of the mainstream media sources to be reliable. In this video, I share some of the places I go online to find information.

In this video, I offer a few words of encouragwement to fledgling home educators. I homeschooled my four kids for 19 years, and I can tell you from experience -- you can teach your kids...and do a better job than the government schools do.

This is a re-post, because the first video had a blank spot in it.
Updating you on what's going on at the Homestead, and the upcoming 127 Yard Sale.

By request, I re-recorded a video I took down right after posting a few days ago. In it, I look at what happened with the Wagner Group in Russia, and how it could impact us in the United States.

The blackberries are starting to ripen in east Tennessee, and today I was out picking some to use in making jelly.

Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.
The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.
She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.
She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.
She is like the merchants' ships; she bringeth her food from afar.
She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens.
She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.
She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms.
She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night.
She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff.
She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.
She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet.
She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple.
Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land.
She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant.
Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.
She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.
She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.
Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.
Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.
Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised.
Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.
~ Proverbs 31:10-31

These are the top 11 wild plants that can be foraged in Tennessee right now or in the next few months, most for food, but some for other uses.

The four levels of community you need for an emergency.

Drawing on a passage of scripture in Isaiah, and what Jesus said in the Gospel of John, I talk about how God's people should respond to the destruction of the nation.

Hundreds of thousands of immigrants from many nations are assembling at the U.S.-Mexico border, waiting for entry into the United States when Title 42 expires at midnight (Eastern Time) Thursday night. What can you do to protect you and yours when someone you don't know comes to your home?

This is a short video on how to properly dry your laundry on a clothesline.

On a recent trip to the store, I was stunned by how much the price of everything has increased in three years. And that put me to thinking....

Just an update on what I see going on: Nations abandoning the dollar as reserve currency and what it means for Americans, thoughts on Donald Trump . . . and Resurrection Day!

A short update on what's going on, on our homestead, plus my views on the banking crisis, Putin's meeting with Xi, and the border crisis. Is the U.S. in decline?

Luke 2:52 contains the key to homeschooling -- or simply raising a healthy child. In this short video, I go over what the Lord showed me from this verse.

Here's what's been happening on the Fisher homestead, with a couple of new goat kids, and another puppy. And today I show how (and why) I vaccinate my own dogs.

I made this video to point out what I consider the three greatest physical threats we face as a people. But today the U.S. government spokesman stated that the U.S. Air Force had shot down an unknown object over Alaska, so I have attached the information we have available on that to the end of this video (starting at 11:35).

We have a new puppy on the homestead. Frances is a livestock guardian dog.
Some of the foremost LGD's in the United States are: Great Pyrenees, Anatolian Shepherd, Akbash, Maremma, Kangal, and Komondor.

It's a new year! Locals here in Tennessee rang it in at midnight Saturday in a special way. And now I'm looking at first steps in the garden.

How we fared in the Christmas Storm of 2022.
