Mother Earth News Fair 2017 Albany Oregon, seeding new grow tent, and video updates

Hi Everyone, Paula and I had a great time at the motherearthnews fair down in Albany Oregon this past weekend. It wasn’t as big an event as last year (read below for more details), but it was still a great event. We saw lots of presentations from people out on their homesteads & farms doing things or what I love to say as “getting s%&t done!”. These kinds of events are always so inspiring to Paula and myself. Without further adieu here’s what we got done on our limited homestead task weekend…sometimes we need a break to learn and relax. 🙂

Hey Hey Everyone! We’ll I’ve finished the work on the farm truck steering components replacement (on a 1 ton truck this can be quite the feat of wills muscling the parts in and out).
