Today’s Questions:

Ellie asks – I really want to start raising pigs. Only one or two at a time. I just need some advice on what I need to get started, some tips on raising them to be healthy, and maybe some troubleshooting on any obstacles I might find in my way. Also what breed to look for being a first timer and where to get them.

 

Scott asks – I want to try to do a lot more planting in raised bed planters next year. I would love to hear what you have to say about getting off to a good start. What type of soil mixture / amendments to start off with? Depth of soil? Maintenance? Irrigation / drainage?

 

Jamie asks – A couple episodes ago you gave a definition of  modern homesteading that made a lot of sense to me, could you say a little more about what makes a person a homesteader? I don’t have a lot of land, I grow a garden and do some food preservation but I’m not sure I would call myself a homesteader.
