Hi Jenna!
Loved this vlog. I totally get what you're saying about being dependent on "services" versus being interconnected in a rural community. I want more of the second option - inspired by your blog. Loved hearing about how everything came together for you during your storm preparation, thanks to good friends and neighbors. But you do a lot for everyone else (you do a lot for me, anyway), so right back atcha. By the way, my goats look like beach balls right now!

I'm so glad you have others around to help you, and they have you to help them, as well.

I've noticed more ads at the beginning of your vlogs (yay). Do you get extra money if I actually watch the videos? I could martyr myself for 2 minutes to pretend to watch an inane advertisement if it adds to your income.

SO thanks all for the kind words, neighbors and friends ARE cold antler farm, as much as you guys are. And while right now I was the one being helped, it all pays in a circle. This year I have loaded hay in Patty's barn, helped with her animals and chores, butchered chickens with her, etc. The Hoffs have a lifetime pass to any CAF event. I adore them! Their son helps with chores too!

Karen, those ads do help the farm! Last month youtube made this farm 17 bucks. Not a huge amount, but gas for the truck for sure! It can only help to click ads on youtube from my videos or the big google adsense link at the top of this blog.

You speak of something which I discovered after my homesteading journey began-self-reliance. I came to realize that interdependence is much more powerful than independence. So grateful that you have folks around you who speak with good deeds. It's all about the karma, farmer. Be well.

First Vlog watched since coming back to your blog. Good format. What I liked was the timing. Super Bowl Sunday with millions of people focusing their whole day on how to party the hardest. Then there are folks like yourself just out taking care of life and feeling very good with it at the end of the day.

I hope you start stacking wood against the wall behind the stove. Stack it one row deep, angle it towards the wall (so it doesn't fall over) and get that wood drying out.

Isn't community great? I grew up rural and now live (intentionally) urban and I observe that knowing and depending upon your neighbors is a choice you must make and pursue, no matter the location. My community is considered blighted, yet we are involved in each other's lives for food, safety, help with everyday needs, as well as fun and love. It even includes some farming and animal husbandry!
