Today is a Friday so we have an interview and this interview is great. Local farmer and listener Jason Smith of Smith Family Farm joins me today to talk about how they built their 10 acre paradise into something that both brings them high quality food and supplies locals and restaurants with awesome produce. You also get a booze whisperer segment today.

Today, I talk through something kind of personal – the thought process on whether to push through the hard time in my business or to pull the plug. This is a place everyone seems to come to when starting a micro business (under 5 employees) and I am right there. But more on that in the main section of today’s show.

Today, we have a thought of the walk for Friday about Doers versus Takers. It really is amazing what happens when you gather a group of doers together and the become friends. Perhaps this is why the communities that work the best are based on doers, not takers. More on that in the show today.

Today, I talk about how to begin implementing a permaculture approach to your homestead. This has been at the front of my mind this year as I started taking a PDC. I will share with you how I stumble across permaculture, what it is, and some steps we have taken here to begin adjusting our homestead to be more functional through permaculture design. Don’t get me wrong: I am a student of permaculture sharing my journey with you, not an expert.

It is so easy to get hurt by what people say and do to you – even when those same people meant something completely different. Today, I have a reminder for all of us to not take things so personally. It is not about you and it is not about me most of the time – but we perceive the world through our view – and everything can seem personally targeted to us, even when it isn’t. We will discuss that and some ways to reframe your view right after our regular segments.

Today we will talk about the annual process of preparing for summer in the pantry. You see, we are moving from eating what we have stored in large part to eating fresh foods and storing the excess and with that comes the need to audit, reorganize and plan for the coming year.
