This'll be our first year trying to grow potatoes this way. Since we are building up raised beds at the moment and prefer to disturb the soil as little as possible, we thought that this would be a good method to attempt.

Rather than digging into the earth and planting the seed potatoes there, we just placed them on top of the soil and then burried them with some straw mulch and compost. We'll see how this works, but we are certainly optimistic. Enjoy the video!

#PlantingPotatoes #Gardening #PapaPepper

With free mulch and lots of rocks available, the possibilities that arise around here work out rather well for us. Since our garden area consists of narrow raised beds and pathways, it's not an ideal place to grow sprawling, vining plants like Watermelons, Pumpkins, and some Winter Squash.

Since we have an area on our land cleared in case we ever build a house, it's important to keep that area "tamed," or it'll just grow back into a forest. Recently, I decided to mulch that area to suppress the growth and build soil, and I'll be adding some small raised beds in it too.

The small raised beds can be planted with things like watermelons, and then they can sprawl out over the mulch and cover the area. Eventually, if we do end up building there, the rocks can be gathered and used elsewhere and the mulch will have broken down a bit by then and can be used in a soil building project someone else on the property

We also plan on growing some Okra and Corn in this area, so we'll be getting two levels of food out of the space. In this video, I get the project started.

#gardening #garden #mulch

When we first moved to the Ozarks, we were excited about finding a way to put our family into a debt free home. One idea that we had was to use old grain bins as part of the structure.

With a lot of excitement and very little research, I ended up purchasing two grain bins that were located over three hours away. Sad to say, I bit off more that I could chew, and at the moment I have neither grain bins nor the money I paid for them.

Learn from my mistakes people. I did an absolutely horrible job on this one.

This was not what we expected. While I was moving some rocks, I saw the head of a Rough Green Snake back itself down a hole. After further investigation, we found a clutch of eggshells that hatched last year, and managed to locate the serpent as well.

This species is one of our favorite snakes, and we really enjoy having them on our property. Hopefully we'll have a stable population here on the homestead for many years to come.

Soon, we'll be having another little one of our own, Lord willing, and Mama-Pepper's body is already preparing for the birth. Yesterday she had a pretty good round of warm-up contractions, so sometime within the next two weeks we should be having a delivery. We are thinking it'll more likely be sooner, rather than later.

Anyway, after a wonderful meal and fellowship with some friends, we returned late to find another baby lamb. This time it was one of Shetland/Finnsheep that gave birth, rather than one of Jacob's Sheep. There sure are a lot of new additions around here lately!

Recently, I broke the fiberglass handle on my extension pruner. Back in the day, I would have just bought a new one, but these days, I try to be wiser than that.

It took a bit of thinking, and less than $3 USD, but I pulled it off. Check out the video to find out how.

We figured that this one was pregnant with two lambs. Unfortunately, I had to leave after finding the first one, so we hoped for the best. sure enough, the little ram had a sister born later that day!!!

We've got plenty of useful things on the property here, but in order to put them to the best use, we've got to move some of them around. This time we were working on a rather large raised bed, and thankfully the resources we needed were already on our land, we just had to relocate them.

Big thanks to SweetIrisFarm and Farmer G for putting this one together.

Goats are among the homesteading animals that are well known for being escape artists. In this collaboration, different channels share about what techniques they use to keep their goats at home rather than allowing them to free-range around the neighborhood or countryside.

With a comical little intro and outro, we offer up our own story about trying to keep the goats at home. Enjoy!

In preparation for our new growing season, each of the Little-Peppers have chosen a growing project this year. They each picked something out of the Baker Creek Heirloom Seed Company catalogue and now we are getting ready.

"Monster Truck," our oldest son who just turned six years old, is planning on attempting to grow the "Snake Bean Gourds" from Baker Creek. We decided to transform an old, simple bamboo trellis a sturdier structure with the hopes that it'll be able to handle this child's crop this year. Enjoy the video!

This has been years in the making, and I'm so excited to finally have my first book ever in print. This one is a 50 day daily devotional about the end-times as revealed in the Bible, and in it I attempt to make an intimidating and often confusing subject digestible and easy to comprehend.

By selling it from our store, I can actually charge less than amazon for the book and even save purchasers some more on shipping charges too, while actually ending up with a larger portion of the sale price for my family, so this option should work out better for everyone.

I've listed two different options, just in case anyone wants to obtain an autographed copy of the book. For just one dollar more, I can sign the book and even include a personalized message for those who desire it.

A special thanks to everyone who has encouraged and supported us along our journey. Y'all mean the world to us!

Soon I plan on releasing a few more books too, so stay tuned!

#BookRelease #MyFirstBook #PapaPepper

I thought it would be fun to have a friendly contest and also encourage some different channels to try a new food. Our first year growing these snake gourds was last year, and we were blown away. Right now, they are one of my top three garden plants of all time, and they are super productive and delicious.

This year, I'll be sending out some seeds that I saved and encouraging other channels to try growing some Snake Gourds of their own. The actual contest will be to grow the biggest one, but contestants are free to eat and enjoy as many of the other ones as they want.

I'll try to get out some seeds to whoever is interested, and all you have to do to enter the contest is grow them this year and try to get a big one to measure and enter. We'll need a video of the final measurement, but you can document the journey of growing these as much or as little as you want. Also, these seeds are the same kind that Baker Creek Heirloom Seed Company sells - https://www.rareseeds.com/kikinda-competition-strain-edible-gourd/

If you are a YouTube channel in the United States that wants to enter, you can shoot me an email at [email protected] expressing your interest with a valid US shipping address and I'll try to get you some seeds as quickly as I can.

For a short season, edible pod pea that can also be used for canning, Alaska peas can be a good choice. We plan on trying several varieties of peas this year to see which does best for us down here, and the Alaska peas were the first ones to get planted.

Since they can grow to about 2.5 or 3 feet in height, I did provide some support. If all goes according to plan, we should be able to start harvesting by mid-April.

Marking which plants you planted where can be rather important. A variety of gardeners have a variety of options that they prefer on how to do this, from labels to popsicle sticks to making a map. For me, I figured that I might as well go extreme and a little overboard, but only because it made sense at the time and I had the opportunity.

I've got some new wood-burning tools, plus I've got really slow internet. Basically, while photos or videos upload, or while I wait for a page to load, I kind of need something to do so it doesn't feel like I'm wasting my time. Therefore, woodburning some custom garden signs is a good option.

This just in!!! One of our Jacob's Sheep ewes has the "lavender" colored wool instead of brown, so we named her Lavender. Last year, she blessed us with a little white ram and a little white ewe. This year, it looks like she only had one, and it was a little ewe that the little-peppers named Winter. Interestingly enough, we had a small hail storm a while after her birth. I had to take this video later in the day after sundown, so it is a little grainy, but I'll get some better footage later. Enjoy checking out the new one!

After a quick trip up to bless The Citystead in MIchigan, the Box of Blessings is back, and more and more channels are adding to it. It's quite an impressive list so far, and from the sounds of things, those pitching in is only growing.

Basically, it's a travelling seed box of sorts that is making its way around the country from different homesteads and gardens, with people taking out what they want and adding in what they've got extra of. Moreover, plenty of others are tossing in extra seeds to bless others as well.

This time, I check out what The Citystead sent me back, and I announce the next destination, "Clueless Homesteaders!" For your chance to get the box next, you'll have to comment on the unboxing video from Clueless Homesteaders, but first I'll have to reload this and get it sent up there.

A lot of people are getting involved in that, as this list here will show.

I really do try to make the most of my runs to town, and with free mulch plus the need to pick up animal feed and hay, often I bring my trailer with me to. In this video I share a bit about cheap food, free pallets, desiring things that are more nutritious and wholesome, and then the Little-Peppers jump to work to help get things done. (We like to work together and make it fun, so things get done while we have a good time.)

#ChannelHijack #BabyGoat #PapaPepper

VIEWER DISCRETION ADVISED.

While some people have a whole handful of baby kids each year, we only have two pregnant does, so one giving birth is half of what we have to look forward to.

Today, Mama-Pepper heard Daisy, our Alpine-Nubian Milk Goat Doe, crying out in an unusual manner. Figuring that she may be going into labor, she quickly sent the Little-Peppers to check. Sure enough, her contractions had begun. Sometimes, goats seem to want their owners present for the birth, and that may have been the case this time.

When I arrived on the scene, her contractions we underway, and soon, she began to puch with them. The first thing that we saw protrude was one tiny, little hoof, which isn't the best sign. Ideally, both hooves of the unborn kid were be tucked up under its chin, but this little guy only had one.

Soon, she managed to push the head out, but without the second front leg being in position, the baby was not fully born. At this point Daisy laid down, and I decided to help out a bit. Monster Truck (our oldest son) had gotten some oil, so I lubricated Daisy a bit and got a grip while I waited for her to push with the next contraction.

When things seemed right, I slowly gave a pull, and "Pocket" finally came the rest of the way out. Ideally we like everything to happen naturally without intervention, but when a shoulder is caught up like that, I felt it was best to assist.

They are both doing amazingly well right now, and as I suspected due to her size, she only had a single kid this time. We'll have an update up soon enough.

This was some of the best money I've spent this year. To keep my seedlings and propagated plants covered and prevent them from drying out, I needed some taller covers. I chose to order some 4" tall ones for abour $2.50 USD each, which proved to be a good idea!

When I picked them up at the PO Box, a couple other packages were waiting for me from "Vegetable Man" and "The Chookstead." They had each wanted to bless us with some great stuff, and to add to the Box of Blessings when it comes back this way!

A lot of people are getting involved in that, as this list here will show.
