  1. I've enjoyed watching some of your videos on You Tube! On one of the videos, you mentioned a mixture that you use to prevent blight. Could you please share the recipe you use? Thank you!

  2. I was watching a blog and wanted to share the name of the rooster with you. This rooster has 5 toes and it keeps him from hurting the ladies because he is gentle and gets a better hold. He is called a Salmon Faberol. I have no idea if the spelling is correct but I think you will be able to tell what I mean. He is a French rooster. Hope this helps.

  5. Love your program and just finished watching the one about your septic tank and it brought to mind something I've been doing for l5 years since I first bought my house and had the septic pumped...A good ole local guy who did the pumping told me that if I put a couple packages of fleischman's yeast down my toilet once a month that I would never have to pump again. l5 years later...no pumping :) Just thought I would pass along the tip. God bless...you remind me of me 50 years ago :)

  9. Hi Patara,
    I just watnted to say I love your youtube channel and everything you do. I am new to homesteading and have 4 hens I live in Idaho and this is the hens first winter and what a cold one. They are in a small coop with expansion pen and seem ok they are not laying much anymore.I did notice they have some frostebite on there combs some of them are white. What should I do?I have researched and hear so many different opinions.So I thought I'd ask you? Thanks do much and blessings to you and your family!

  11. Hi! My name is Tabitha I am 22 years old and I've loved gardening and the old fashioned life since infancy. Being raised by my grandparents and great grandparents it's not hard to understand why. I have instilled in me the knowledge of so so many generations. Lessens I will not soon forget. But out of all of this knowledge I lack education in the "art" of homesteading. By watching yours and Stary's videos I've gained so much. My boyfriend and I have been talking for the last 2 years about starting our own homestead. I would love to chat with you about what to expect and run some ideas by you to see if they sound logical for our situation. Seeing as my grandparents have all passed on, I really have had no guidance since I've become an adult (18). You've got no idea how much it would mean to me.
    Sincerely, Tabitha-Sue

  12. Hey! How about an old guy's point of view? I watch your channel all the time. Some of the things you talk about bring back very fond memories of growing up in the woods and some of the things you talk about are brand new to me! In either case, I seem to leave your channel with a smile more often than not. Outstanding work and thank you for letting us peek into your life. That alone takes great courage.

  13. Hi Patara just wanted to let you know that I love your videos and the fact that you not only speak the truth but also the fact that there is no pretense about you at all and that you are not afraid to put your self out there for us all to not only learn, be inspired by you, but also respect in that you are living what you believe in. You also bring a blessed mixed sense of humbleness, sincerity, quirkiness, and most of all gratitude which is not often seen anymore and I come away feeling blessed after watching your videos. I also wanted to let you know that I am working toward that route as well although I live in an apartment and right I am re-learning how to can (haven't canned since I was like 8 or 9 yrs old) and since I am saving any extra money towards my goal of buying a small homestead I am pinching pennies but have been able to build my food storage for pretty much free. Your followers may be interested to know that at Dollar General each Wednesday you can print or get a coupon for $3 off $15 and on Saturday a coupon for $5 dollars off $25 (sometimes $30) and combine that with coupons and you can get your beans, rice, baking soda for free and during canning season use that to go towards buying jars for canning and you save a whole lot of money. Also if anyone if fortunate enough to either know some or kin to someone who works in a restaurant they can get free 4 or 5 gal buckets (granted they might have been filled with pickles but that is nothing that baking soda can't fix).
