One night we forgot to close the coop, I heard sqwaking and all kinds of noises coming from the coop from our bedroom window so I ran out and was able to save our hen, she was sitting on eggs so she was the first one to be picked at, when we put her back in the coop the rooster was still on his perch didn’t even move a muscle, then tonight I went to close the coop and something got in there before I got a chance to lock up for the night and killed the same hen that had been grabbed prior, and the rooster didn’t alert, attack or do anything, he was just sat on his perch like always, I get at n ..read more

Let’s say I’m a family of 4 living in Colonial America. 1. What are average meals B/L/D 2. Ive heard one cow can feed a family for a year, so lets say we have that and a deer or something could be hunted when/if necessary 3. In total, how much meat, vegetables, milk, butter, flour, etc. would i need to fully sustain one year at a time for the average family of 4? I know there are plenty of other factors, I just want to know what you think the numbers would look like. submitted by /u/amshanks22 [visit reddit] [comments ..read more

Fruit trees in omaha nebraska

Does any on in nebraska or similar zone 5 climate have any experience with fruit trees? I am thinking about red haven or galaxy peaches, blenheim or harcott apricots, and burgundy plums. I have a lot of experience gardening but have never grown fruit trees. All of these say they are self fertile. How much fruit will we get if we only have 1 peach, 1 apricot, and 1 plum tree? Will there be enough for 5 people? I don't have much space and only want 3 trees. Or would I do better planting just 3 varieties of apricot or 3 varieties of peach instead to produce more fruit? But I would prefer 1 peach ..read more

I recently posted a pic of my suv full of frozen processed beef. I had some people ask where the steaks were. Tonight I got to grill some of it! So I wanted to share. I am not great at scoring beef, but I think it looks like Choice grade to me. I'd like to hear what everyone thinks! This is the end of the ribeye. This is a dairy breed, so the steaks are not as wide as a beef breed, but the flavor was AMAZING! submitted by /u/dremmle [visit reddit] [comments ..read more

Help with Deer Proofing

Hello all. Not sure if this is the right place to ask for help but ¯_(ツ)_/¯ This is my first year having a vegetable garden and we have a lot of deer in my neighborhood. They eat everything. I’ve managed to wrap my whole yard in deer netting but the entrance to my yard has this arch of ivy. I’m not sure how to close it off at night in a way that’s not annoying to put in place and then move out of the way every morning. So far I had the idea to attach some netting to the top of the arch with the bottom being attached to and weighed down by a stick of bamboo. Each morning I pick up the bam ..read more

Anyone successfully turn acres of sand into soil…?

Eyeballing 20 acre lots that are basically high desert / mountains. Earth is course sand, extremely low organic material... There are a few commercial fields and some very small private hobby orchards around. So it’s not impossible, and asking prices are manageable… I’m thinking I’ll aim to introduce as much organic material as I can manage, retain and pump as much water as I can (legally) to build a reserve for the dry summer and fall months. Ultimate plan is to setup a market-farm that could function as a retirement homestead (with a caretaking household). Anyhow, wondering if anyone has ad ..read more

Drip irrigation not working

I set up drip irrigation today. I set up the main line and then only put a few emitters in one bed to see if it worked before doing the whole garden. Turned the water on and it worked perfectly. Finished up setting up the rest of the garden and I’m getting just drizzles coming out of all the emitters compared to a pretty good flow on the initial try. I now have 30 emitters compared to 4 during the initial try. Could it just be to many emitters and I don’t have enough pressure for them all like I did when I only had 4 going? Anyway to fix this? Put a lot of work into this and am hopeful so ..read more
