Today I will share a Holler Homestead update and coffee progress, talk a bit about the health care bill that passed last week, and what I have been able to find out it, then walk you through project two of the Learn Canning in 8 Projects series.
Eating Seasonally and Tales from the Prepper Pantry This is where we share what we are eating as it comes to us - and talk about ways to use what we store.
Getting the Gardens Ready Where we share what we are doing to get our food growing operation up and running.
Healthcare WTF Late last week, the House passed a bill to “fix” The ACA, or Obamacare. Since that time there has been so much spin that it is difficult to stand up I am so dizzy.
What should I the homesteader do about this? Nothing. Basically this process is out of our hands. They are using this topic to control us. The divide us to pit us against one another. So consider not being a jerk about the whole thing. Personally, I am going to do my best to support our innovative medical providers directly, with my business. I am going to also plant poppies.

Garden is a mess - video tracking what can be done in a week a little at a time: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC-PX-bHfC3AEOUPWgJ5d40g
Coffee update - we are going to go for it: I found a roaster that will allow us to launch a subscription service and sell a ton more Holler Roast coffees - but we will need to add blends.
