From growing calendula and other flowers and herbs in my garden every year to foraging for dandelions and other potential flowers with medicinal uses, I am sharing some of the homemade salves and lotions I make throughout the year in this video.

I also have my handy-dandy notebook that I keep all the information for each salves, lotion and even the tinctures I make in my homestead kitchen listed in this notebook for easy-at-a-glance knowledge.

Just a super short video introducing who I am to the platform.

I have plans to post anywhere from two to five times per week. Topics will be what's going on around the homestead; from making soap to new recipes, cheap and frugal ideas as well as making the next batch of wine, tincture or even my cannabis harvest!

We're just two "empty nesters" moving closer and closer to our retirement years and still trying to make a "go at it" on our homestead.

A little background about us...
He is a city boy and I'm a country girl.
We actually went to the same high school... but never knew each other until years later.

I've always had the dream of being a homesteader, learning more about gardening and preserving and my husband is looking for more land to have the freedom to hunt and enjoy the outdoors.

We live on a very small parcel of land (about 1/3 of an acre) which pushes me to learn more about gardening in more unique ways to produce a harvest to feed us throughout the year.

I cook from scratch, make my own soaps, lotions and a variety of concoctions as well as grow cannabis.
You can find me blogging on steemit, and Weku.

Come along as I start my BitChute channel and share some daily life from this little piece of Heaven we own
