Episode 14: Homestead Living in the City and in the Country

Holler Homestead living is the topic of the day. Today is Monday, December 5, 2016 and this is episode 14 of Living Free in Tennessee. With the production of the Center Hill Sun absorbing the whole weekend, I thought it would be a good day to talk about what day to day life is looking like in December.

Three things you can do to start taking control of your food

  1. Establish a regular family meal 
  2. Build your pantry
