Episode-1396- All About Keeping Chickens

Our Rooster Upgrayedd More than Earns His Keep

Our Rooster Upgrayedd More than Earns His Keep

I think perhaps the hottest thing in the modern homesteading trend right now is keeping chickens for both meat and eggs.  It isn’t hard to understand why!  The chicken and mankind go back thousands of years as allies.  I figure the natural fit is mostly that chickens will eat almost anything people will eat and many things we won’t.

Hence you have a bird that lays eggs almost year round that in many places can make its living off your scraps and the surrounding land.  Once trained to a coop, which takes about a day on average it will put itself to bed at night and always come home unless something eats it.

If you want more of them you let a hen do all the work and hatch and raise the babies.  You take older birds and excess males and turn them into surplus meat.  At least that is the philosophy that chickens were raised under for most of history.  Today things are not as simple, in some cases they could be and in others modern reality conflicts with what would be easiest or cheapest.

Episode-1383- The Forest Market Garden Concept

Last week I did Episode 1379- The Profitable Small Acre Homestead and it seemed to be a pretty big hit.  Today’s show continues on that theme.  The reason I bring this up is 1379 has some business components that apply here and I will not be rehashing many of them, so to get the most from today’s show you may wish to listen to 1379 first if you have not already done so.

With 1379 fresh in my mind I was turned on to a book called, The Market Gardner by Jean-Martin Fortier.  I am currently reading it but one thing that struck me was the constant need for bed prep, soil amendments, seed and plant starting, heavy irrigation, etc.  And this is a book that promises to reduce work by “going small and focusing on intensive production and quality”.  Frankly it still sounds like a ton of work to me.

My view is a perennial style system while taking longer to yield is a lot less ongoing work and requires a lot less ongoing expense and inputs.  So today I am examining this concept in a live thought expirment.  Many of the concepts you have seen developed at TSP came via this type of thinking and planning and many other ideas never made it though the tunnel to the other side.

Hence, today’s show is not a statement of what will work, or even well planned.  It is just what I claim a thought experiment with a lot of work left to be done, but it is one I believe is highly valid and may in fact empower many homesteaders in the future to become profitable on small blocks of land ranging between 2-5 acres.  Perhaps even less.

Join Me Today to Discuss…

  • Why this approach
  • What is the downside
  • What are some of the biggest challenges
  • How might you reduce establishment costs
    • Establish a “beach head” with most planned varieties
    • Propagate and expand over time
    • Develop solid earthworks to reduce irrigation requirements
    • Use irrigation trays like IrriPan to establish, then expand with reuse
    • Thoughts on grafting including patented varieties
  • Thoughts on staggering harvest with fruit tree varieties
    • Apples (mid July to late Oct.)

Episode-1379- The Profitable Small Acre Homestead

Homesteading is a dream for a lot of people, a some day idea.  Generally it is usually this way.  I need a job, so I need to be close to work, so we can’t afford a  huge place close enough, so ONE DAY I will have enough saved to make the move.

This can and does work, but one day has a way of becoming a moving target, a carrot before the horse that keeps the cart moving yet never is tasted for many.  So my view is for some at least, the homestead can at least in time become a significant income source.

Episode-1325- Taking the TSP Homestead Forward in 2014

Charlie and Ralph Nap after a Long Day on the Homestead

Time for a simple old school style TSP that is basically a chat with Jack.  Today we take a look a what 2014 has in store for life at the TSP homestead.  The first year here was mostly an infrastructure establishment phase.  We installed swales and hugul beds.  We also built facilities for our livestock, systems to move they though the land, etc.  We installed garden ponds and many other systems.

The entire first year of establishment is actually available in a 90 minute video we filmed that you can find here.  The key is the first year was like building the roads and bridges, 2014 is going to be more like when the houses, buildings and shops go in, metaphorically of course.

This year is going to be awesome, Josiah will be off building the flagship PermaEthos farm which will require at least one trip by me up there for a major earthworks course and installation.  Other than that though Dorothy and I will be back to it just being the two of us and frankly even though we love Joe like family we are looking forward to it.

We are moving into a new phase, one of tweaking, edge expansion and management.  Shifting from changing the landscape to working with it.  Dorothy is even considering starting a small homestead business or businesses of her own.

Join Me Today As We Discuss…

  • Once we plant 300 plus trees this week then what
  • Plans for more mobile chicken fencing and a mobile coops
  • Charly’s progress and the BS that a dog that kills a chicken must be beaten, etc.
  • The geese “herd” is being expanded
  • Ducks into the system
  • A new “pond” near the big hen house how it will add to our system
  • A new crop in the garden ponds, Chinese water chestnut
  • This year we go big on perennial medicinal herbs
  • Bees are coming, I have no idea what to do with them but I will figure it out
  • Dorothy is considering an egg business, perhaps a plant business too
  • Pasture restoration 2.0, one horse equals a LOT of poop and hay
  • Final decision on the west pasture has yet to be made
  • Plans for our future abundance

We also discuss the physical, spiritual, and physical benefits of a country life style, along with the mental attitude a family must take to make the transition.  We delve quite deeply into many of the things that are just wrong in modern society and how taking things back a step or two is one way that solutions can be found.

We also discuss how it isn’t all sunshine and roses out in the country but how many of the sacrifices and hardships are well worth the rewards of a free life.

I Also Ask Cody Questions Today Such as…

  • What made you decide to move out of the city

Episode-1238- Jenna Woginrich from The One Woman Farm

Jenna Woginrich - Of The One Woman Farm

Jenna Woginrich – Of The One Woman Farm

Jenna Woginrich is an author, homesteader, archer, and falconer-in-training. Two summers ago she left her corporate office gig to focus on the farm full-time and now runs a 6.5 acre homestead by herself south of the Adirondacks in Washington County, NY.

There she grows most of her own food; raises her own meat, dairy, veggies and eggs with the aid of animal power. Horses pull firewood from the forest, a sheepdog manages the livestock, hawks are trained to take small game, and carts and saddles are used as much as her dented pickup truck.

She’s passionate about self-reliance, martial arts, hunting, tracking, horses, and traditional and country skills. She’s also the business owner of Cold Antler Farm, an educational homestead where people travel from all over the world to take classes in everything from beginner fiddle to herbalism.

Her new book, One Woman Farm, has been described as follows by Joel Salatin, “Read this book to learn why farmsteads need to be loved.  Jenna’s One-Woman Farm is a jewel: small and lustrous.”

Episode-1236- Plans for the TSP Homestead and Upcoming Workshops

I am going to continue with some fun stuff that is informative and not so deep into the world of politics, economics, etc.  Today I am going to line out the planned projects for our 3 acre property and what they will be doing for us long term.

The first principle of permaculture in my mind is “observe and interact” and while interact is part of it, to me on a new property about a year of observation is really ideal for the planning process.  At this point I have been on my property for about 10 months.  I now know it intimately.  I know where the winds blow including when they don’t line up with the “official information” from the weather service.

I know where my soils are a foot deep and where they are only a few inches above the limestone reef that is under this part of north Texas.  I know where water flows and where it pools.  I know the species that do well here on their own in all seasons.  I  have seen the results of my work with my animals an I know it works.  Islands of deep green now exist in pastures that are tired and mostly brown.

I have had the great fortune to have my intern Josiah Wallingford of Bring of Freedom on property now for 3 months to aid in my planning.  We now have a much deeper understanding of many of our subtle contours.  Then we did an urban design workshop.  30 students received certification in Urban Design and we got amazing ideas for a small space design on the property.  Josiah and I have expanded these plans and it is all coming together.  Today I will do my best to explain our future plans and how this homestead is going to be transformed over the next year into a holistic system that is self supporting and will generate its own fertility.

Join Me Today As We Discuss…

  • The tactical greenhouse with a “climate battery”
  • 6000-7500 gallons of catchment tanks are going in, just for starters
  • Why we will use some pumps in our systems, yet we will not “need” them
  • Taking swales to an extreme level even on land anyone would call flat
  • Road catchment diversion, more water then we could ever need
  • Cell grazing of geese and chickens in our system, perhaps sheep next year
  • Building a 60,000 gallon pond where you can’t go below grade and making it self sustaining
  • Making hugul swales where we can only dig about 2 inches into the soil
  • Building top soil at a massive rate in the interswales
  • Berms, berms and more berms
  • A food forest going in this spring, 40 productive trees, 280 support trees
  • The contour beds are due to become a massive “micro food forest”
  • This is just the beginning!

Episode-1210- Lessons in Homesteading by Taking a Big Step Backwards

Last Year's Abundance Won't Be Repeated This Year

Last Year’s Abundance Won’t Be Repeated This Year

Last year at this time, the wife and I were cutting up so many jalapenos that it took 3 days just to get them all ready for dehydration.  We had taken bag after bag of produce to the local church all summer long as the abundance was more than the two of us could us.

Neighbors who had previously shook their heads in slight mockery at our initial set up now shook their heads in awe at an abundance none had ever seen.  Into a rocky, granite ridden ridge top we had done something no one ever thought could be done.

Over 1,000 peppers in one harvest from 24 plants, yea we did that.  25 water melons from one 4×10 foot bed, did that too.  Trees rated to only zones 2-5 surviving in rock and granite in zone 7 with 100 degree days, yep, made it happen.

Yet as most of you know my wife was happy and unhappy at the same time.  The place was wonderful and she loved it.  Yet the separation from her family was more then she wanted to deal with.  So we made a decision to come to Texas.  Today a new challenge is unfolding in front of us.  Lots of work has been done, the foundation is largely set for next year but this year, well, it has been tough.  Today is about what that has taught me.

Join Me Today As I Discuss…

  • From abundance to starting over, the hash reality is mostly psychological
  • Why it is good for those who have done well to start over, it is called remembering
  • The unique challenges of our property and what they are teaching us
    • Less rain
    • Less soil in some ways
    • Damaged land is harder to work with
    • Everything doesn’t work everywhere
    • Animals are more work then I remember but more productive as well
    • You often don’t know as much as you think you do
  • The plans moving forward
    • Get the food forest main frame established in Spring 2014
    • Urban garden design in Oct. primary implementation over 6 months
    • 1500 gallon water catchment, done, expand by 1500 more
    • Develop permanent fencing for paddock shift of livestock
    • Develop large scale hugul systems on road frontage
    • Begin classes with better planing on more than just permaculture
    • Increase composting activities on all levels
    • When abundance is reached, don’t forget the reset challenges
    • In the mean time worry less about initial results
