Muscadine; The foraging Series
I have this plant cultivated on my little homestead. Great eating fresh, makes excellent jelly and jam as well as a traditional southern wine.

Muscadine is without any doubt my favorite wild berry. A member of the grape family and a wonderful addition to any homestead. This is an earlier video, I hope I have improved, but there is still good information. 

I hope you enjoy. Consider subscribing to the YouTube channel.

Homestead Tips: Firewood.

Believe it or not it is never too early to be thinking about how you will be staying warm when winter comes. Most people, depending on where you are, should have a heating source that you have control over. In our case we have wood as a backup heat source. When I was growing up heat was our primary source of heat during the winter. As a result, I have cut my fair share of trees and split a lot of stove wood.

The best way to make sure you have plenty of wood for winter is to take advantage of every opportunity to collect your stove wood. In this episode we talk about procuring , seasoning, and heat ratings of wood for your home.

If used correctly and harvested in a managed fashion, firewood is extremely sustainable. I hope you enjoyed the video. 
Well there you have it. I hope you enjoyed this post. Many more to come. Consider subscribing to the YouTube channel and as always any shares and comments are appreciated.
