Greenhouse & Garden Tour May 2022

Greenhouse & Garden Tour May 2022

Check out what’s going on in the greenhouse and in the garden as of May 2022. Black fly season is upon us, so you’ll get to see several of them up close and personal throughout the video.

———————Welcome to Our Maine Homestead!

We moved onto 200 + acres of raw land in northern Maine in September of 2018. We’re building our off-grid homestead, literally, from the ground up with our own four hands.

Our goals are to share our simple, self-sufficient, and sustainable lifestyle using traditional, old fashioned on purpose, and natural methods the same way our grandparents, great grandparents, and those who came before them did.

Along the way we hope to pass on the best parts of this lifestyle to our daughters and to all of you. We want to share the experience of how we live and the challenges we face as we build our dream homestead, raising animals, growing our own food, and working on the many projects required to live this lifestyle.

We’ll show you, not necessarily how to do things, but how we do things. We’ll also share video series that go deeper into specific aspects of our lives and what it’s like to live the way we do in the 21st century.

There’s a saying, “There’s a first time for everything.” Here, there’s a first time for EVERYTHING, because almost everything we’re doing here, we’re doing for the first time.

While our life is simple, it’s not always easier. It’s a lot of hard work, but we were raised knowing that nothing worthwhile comes easy and as you’ll see there are way more positives than negatives.

Thanks for watching!

    The Moose Flies in Maine are no joke! Place looks good though! I’d recommend reading some of Dick Raymond’s garden books. He discusses planting crops like beans in wide rows for increased yields. He was a Vermont Gardener so allot of what he did would apply to Mainers. Good Luck!

    You are making me jealous! I should be home working on my own garden, but instead am stuck in a hotel in Florida for work. Still hoping to get that piece of heaven in Maine one day!
    I have hops in my Bavarian garden. Grows wild and doesn’t really need any tending at all. I had to move it away from the house when it started clogging the gutters, but it comes up each year and flowers/fruits.
    You probably have a lot of berries scattered around too. If you get a chance, try some Old English variety of sloe. Too bitter to eat, but use to make sloe gin, jelly, etc. Beware, will throw out roots everywhere if not kept under control.
    Great to see how your Homestead is coming along!
