Weekend Homesteader box of books with porch insulation and chicken wing clipping along with a close up of a fig cutting starting to sprout

The big news on our farm this week is a box of Anna's new book showing up. The Weekend Homesteader-A Twelve Month Guide to Self-Sufficiency from Skyhorse Publishing.

We got a chance to taste test the Chicago hardy figs and they were awesome! We've also got some details on possible reasons why our attempt at propagating a hardwood cutting failed.

One of the building projects we got into was insulating the new porch roof, and we learned a few things about stopping a chicken from flying over a fence by clipping her wing.

Anna Hess and Mark Hamilton are full time homesteaders who have had a really good garden year and are happy to share their results on their blog they call WaldenEffect.org. They keep the whole operation going by making and selling a new kind of chicken waterer that has been bringing industrial poultry drinking technology to the backyard for several years now.
