Do you love organic gardening and producing your own delicious food?
I always considered growing my own food a real luxury. Knowing where your food comes from is getting more important by the day.
We started on the grow your own and homesteading journey many years ago. Of course, we made lots of mistakes in the beginning but we now produce most of our own food. We grow fruit, vegetables and fresh herbs as well as producing eggs and meat all from a garden sized area. You can do the same! All organic and sustainable of course!
Gardening and homesteading is a never ending learning process...and it never gets boring. What we all learn needs to be shared so it can evolve. This was our main reason to create this website and our new digital magazine, the 'Homestead Gardener'.
This interactive digital magazine is optimized for mobile devices like android phones or iPhones, tablets, and iPads. The content is always readable and resizes to fit your screen so it always looks great and is easy to read without zooming in!
Once downloaded to your device you can read the magazine regardless whether you are on or offline.
I would like to invite you to contribute and share your gardening and homesteading adventures with us. We would love to publish your stories in the magazine. Contact me here for details!
The 'Homestead Gardener' magazine is available through a free app you can download from the Apple AppStore (for iPhones and Ipads) or from GooglePlay (for android phones and tablets). It couldn't be any easier!
Download the app (see instructions below) to your device. Open the app and download the magazines from within the app. The first magazine is available for free so you can find out if this is for you.
