    ****** About Living Traditions Homestead ******

    Living Traditions Homestead is all about living a simple and sustainable way of life. We believe the world has gotten too “busy” and that people are missing out on many of the true blessings this world has to offer. We started as a small urban homestead in Gilbert, AZ and after the city grew up around us, decided it was time leave corporate America and take a big leap of faith by moving our family to the Missouri Ozarks.

    We put out 5 new videos every week! Tuesday through Saturday. We hope you will become part of our homestead family by subscribing to our channel and watching as we transition from city dwellers to full time homesteaders!

    Good thing pigs can't read. Wearing an "I heart bacon" tee shirt is kind of tempting fate.

    I like the weed barrier in your melons. What I do though is lay out cardboard to completely cover the sq footage that i designate. Then, I spread out straw, hay and leaves about 1 ft deep or deeper. I will then build my melon mounds with extra dirt, mulch and compost.

    Isn't it hard to make them bacon after you are all buddy-buddies with them? They seem to like you as much as you like bacon...

    Please, say you're not housing poultry under your house? Birds carry some bad respiratory bugs. I wouldn't sleep under the same roof with them....

    Baker Creek seeds 👍
    I planted the Tiger eye beans. They make great refried beans. I use salt and Olive oil instead of lard.

    I live in Fredericksburg, VA and have a bad problem with vine borers and cucumber beetles and squash bugs. Is there anything that can be added to the soil to keep them from my Zucchini, watermelons and cantaloupe?

    Just curious if you all are at a place with your homestead yet where you have thought about offering classes or an internship on varying topics? Thanks for the great videos from a fellow Mo boy about 200 miles north of you on Hwy 5.

    Every farm or ranch animal I've been around wants to be out and about just before sunup. Seems like you're letting them out way late. I like how that ground-cloth gives a clean surface to walk and sit on. I wouldn't be able to eat my pigs after being such good friends with them. Slaughtering hogs...once was enough for me, it's kinda mean. I got tired of killing chickens as a teen-ager, feeding a family of ten. Some realities of life are overwhelming. Looks like you're doing everything right and enjoying every bit of it.

    Hi, Neighbors! I'm on the AR side of the Ozarks. Raccoons were bad this year and took out my early garden. I'm re-thinking strategy, but electric fencing won't do; I'm in town. Happy for your good harvests. Best wishes!
