Today, we talk about Business Startup and some of the things that most people do not think of before they leap in. Why? Because lots of you are well down the path of getting something going and right this moment is a great time to pause, think about some things that you may not have recently.
Today is a thought of the walk day and I take on what may be to some a sensitive issue: Privilege. My take may not be a new one, but this issue seems to get so bogged down in vocabulary, debate and this intellectual analysis and that intellectual analysis. As I was taking a hike through the forest, I realized that with all the academia, spin, politics and hysteria around the concept of privilege, it is not as complicated as we try to make it. But more on that in the main content of today’s show.
Today is Wednesday and that means we will talk about a homestead-specific topic. Last week, y’all were so interested in fermentation that I thought we would do a bit of a part two on the topic that outlines how to lacto ferment vegetables both with and without a brine, I will share a few recipes, and we will have some fun!
Today we will have a bit of a variety show for you, mostly based on questions and comments from y’all from the last week or so. So today we tackle a backlog of sous vide questions, most importantly my thoughts on the plastic bags leaching into our systems, a celebration of someone who made a major life accomplishment from our community – and she is a regular, when it is a good idea to find a change of scene on a big project, what to do with too many tortillas, and a review of the #my3things approach to planning, along with an update on how I am doing with it this year and feedback from a friend.
Spring Workshop Session: Rocket Mass Heater Build – remind of timeline for tickets (In a little over 3 weeks, we launch. 9am Feb 9).
So today, I will talk through several different kinds of fermentation – several of which you may already consume, benefits beyond homemaking and budget, and why you would even venture into a fermentation habit to begin with…
Also, It is Holler Hat Wednesday:

What do you put in your content plan? We will talk about that today. Also, we will hear from Shawn from Hack My Solar as he reviews his first power bill after changing jobs and moving to a house that is on the grid. And finally, in one of those things that happens where y’all are thinking the same thing at the same time, I will give thoughts on how to get your own podcast going. Nice that the question on that came in the same week as we are discussing content creation, right?

Today, I kick off a new show concept for some Fridays: Thought of the Walk. You see, going for a walk clears your head and often allows you to see things that you once thought were complex into a simpler light. So tune in today for my first “Thought of the Walk.” Wonder what it will be about….
It’s the first episode of 2019 and we had a wonderful week off. Today, I will talk through processing deer as well as share recipes along the way that we use.
My independence fund got a huge boost last week in the form of venison. 40 pounds to be more specific. Processing it cost me $38 in supplies, of which I only used ¼, so that works out to $.23 cents a pound spent for $120 in meat (conservatively). Add to that the 6-8 quarts of deer stock I will be canning and it was a pretty big score!
Closing out the series, we bring you two versions of The Night Before Christmas. One from an intellectual fellow and one set to music. Enjoy!
