Different Way Of Life – Experiencing The Joys Of A Homestead Farm

Different Way Of Life – Experiencing The Joys Of A Homestead Farm
I lived on a homestead in Alaska, but it doesn’t really count. It was the homestead of someone else who was not able to make a go of it and sold the 100 acres to my father, who built our house on it. We never had any little farm animals, although I dreamed of sheep and baby cows. But it would have been pretty cold for them in winter. It was years later, when I moved to France, that I finally got the homestead experience. And the result was not what I expected. Living on LaRhune In France, my little house is up the slopes of a mighty mountain called LaRhune. Not all the way, but far enough up to require a four-by-four truck to get up. I have an old Toyota Landcruiser that carries everything from my dog, my daughter and me to firewood, the new refrigerator and –... Read More

Paving The Way For Homesteading A Backyard Today
Today, the term “homesteading” is generally used to describe a self-sufficient, sustainable lifestyle, which usually includes growing and preserving food, generally without benefit of chemicals. Modern-day homesteaders may have poultry or a small backyard farm, or they may keep bees. Some are able to generate electricity, allowing them to live entirely off the grid.

Living “off the earth” is a fact of life for many people in my rural community, three hours away from Portland. While homesteading a backyard today is a bit different than in the days of the Homesteading Act of long ago, it’s a great way to take advantage of simpler times and a quieter way of life.

Benefits Of Vegetable Garden Ducks

Benefits Of Vegetable Garden Ducks
My fondness for backyard ducks began when I was young. At that time, live ducklings were a popular Easter gift and many stores stocked these adorable fuzzballs the week preceding this egg-centric holiday. Once my Easter duckling would imprint on me, it would dutifully follow me wherever I went. As a child, I mistook this natural instinct for love. Vegetable Gardening with Ducks Nowadays, gardeners are rediscovering the benefits of having poultry in their vegetable gardens. Domestic birds, like chickens, geese and ducks, eat a variety of plant pests and do relatively little harm to the vegetable plants.

A look at some of Port 68’s new collaboration with Jill Seale. After 12 years of showing in InterHall’s temporary spaces, Port 68 has a new, permanent home in the curated space.
