It’s the first Friday of October so that means it’s a time for an update on what’s been going on around our homestead. 

In this episode, I share:

* How we’re processing our abundance of tomatoes and the race to get them inside as ripe as possible before the first frost

* Our success with winter squash like Musque De Provence and North Georgia Candyroaster

* Our hopes for a fall potato harvest

* Our plans for cover crops over winter

* Lessons learned from our first season of gardening on our homestead and our plans for using weed mat and drip irrigation next year

* The abundance of black walnuts that we’re currently harvesting and how we’re getting them out of the husk and ready for cracking

* The health of our flock of meat birds and the success of the recently built chicken tractor

* The experience of processing our first chickens on the homestead

* Our failed first attempt at breeding our New Zealand rabbits and how we’re trying again

* The very noticeable gains of our bottle calves after the blessing of rain in August
