Today we discuss 12 bulletproof homesteading techniques that can transform the way you interact with your land. We’ll touch on wicking beds, a method that can revolutionize your approach to irrigation, and my simple adaptation Johnson Su-style composting, a game-changer for soil health and fertility with a lot less work involved.
We’ll also delve into the world of small livestock, from chickens and quail to rabbits and bees, and how these animals can contribute to a thriving homestead ecosystem. Fodder tree systems, another topic on our list, offer a sustainable way to feed these animals while improving soil quality.
In the realm of gardening, we’ll discuss why every gardener should develop their own ten core crops specific to their climate, needs and preferences. We’ll also explore worm beds and Black Soldier Fly larvae, both excellent ways to manage waste and improve soil health. Aquatic vegetation, often overlooked, can also play a crucial role in a balanced homestead.
Finally, we’ll look at some advanced techniques like biochar, automated irrigation, hydro and aquaponics. These methods can take your homesteading to the next level. And of course, we’ll cover food preservation techniques like lacto-fermentation and dehydration, as well as brewing compost teas, to ensure nothing goes to waste.
