Spring is starting to spring and 2018 plans are being executed and results are already being seen, so I figured it was time for a homestead update show. Lot’s 0f things are new and different this year. Major expansion of all the aquaponics and aquatics systems, new plans for the food forest without the ducks involved and more.
It really has been an amazing journey that we have all been on together, this is our third property since we began TSP back in June of 2008, we are almost at a decade together at this point, so we will also do a little looking back and talk about how our past experiences are steering our future plans.
