Gardening with Marjory Wildcraft

Homesteading Basics With Marjory Wildcraft YouTube YouTube

If you know me at all, you know that I often worry about The End of the World and that I am obsessed with having adequate amounts of food.  Part of this is hoarding food and refusing to let my husband eat any, much to his annoyance… and part of this is me growing food.

Marjory Wildcraft has a homesteading channel with helpful gardening basics, and I love her enough that I bought her DVDs on how to garden and watched them.  Her farm is fascinating, and her techniques are self reliant and useful.  I also like how pragmatic and down to earth she is, so I really enjoy watching her videos.

Now, my garden is nowhere near as fancy or well done as hers, but I do try to put her advice to work.  She also covers raising various animals, and this is part of my frequent push to get chickens or quail.  (But eggs are so cheap that my husband just buys eggs and tells me no.  Also, he’s convinced that I would be unable to butcher the animals come time…. and he’s entirely right.  We would have a bajillion birds, all of them named pets!)

But so far as useful Youtube channels go, this is one of my favorites, and I would definitely recommend watching her videos if you are interested in gardening.

Do you have a garden?  How is that working for you?  Mine is a mixed bag of successes and outright failures, partly because I don’t have enough experience and knowledge to really know what I’m doing and partly because I frequently get sick and can’t care for the garden.  What advice would you have?  Inquiring minds want to know!  *smile*
