Storage area cleanup, planning the upcoming garden harvests, and making more Youtube videos around the urban homestead

Hi Everyone, this is going to be a slightly shorter blog update. This weekend Paula and I were busy cleaning up the storage area under our house and getting rid of a bunch of stuff that wasn’t being used anymore. We donated a bunch and recycled the rest.

Besides this we made a bunch of videos around the urban homestead featuring Paula and Sasquatch (me/Brian). As part of these walks around the homestead we started planning this weeks harvest plans…it’s tomato/tomatillo dehydrating time! 🙂

Here’s the list of our new Youtube videos:

  • Video: Tomatoes in a bag update week 13
  • Video: Layered garden beds update
  • Video: Garden box tomato update
  • Video: Peach tree almost ready for harvest
  • Video: Plant propagation bed update moving toward end of summer
  • Video: Grow tent update for large LED tent with tomatoes, basil, and our happy little poinsettia
  • Video: Grow tent update for mid-size LED tent with salad greens
  • Video: LED grow bench our chard and beta salad mix are ready for first harvest
