We've had the Queen of Homesteading Melissa K. Norris on the podcast last spring talking about getting your garden ready, seed selection, and feeding the family. This time we visited Melissa at her homestead outside of Rockport, WA , about an hour 1/2 drive from our house. We shared a meal and got a little more personal on her success and making a healthier lifestyle a way of life.

Today's podcast is all about our busiest time of the year: Harvest season. Whether it's food from the garden, forest, or an animal that Ryan takes, preserving and getting these foods ready for the winteris a lot of work.
Ryan and Hillary share their stores about harvest season, some of their recommendations on dehydration and canning, and they share a few stories from years gone by.
Ryan spent most of his young life in nature hiking, scouting, and hunting. Skills learned from his father shaped his love for the outdoors and the a healthy respect for the balance of life. In today's podcast, Ryan takes his oldest daughter Pailey Belle hiking and possibly bear hunting for the 1st time. Even though she is only 8, not old enough to hunt by herself, she is very excited to be on the hunt with her Dad.
Today's podcast is inspired by the many jars of beets we have pickled in the last few weeks. Months ago I got a question about cooking beets, and I thought I'd finally give some help! Besides it being harvest season, and without a real kitchen for two months, Ryan and I were able to get a few beet recipes on board, as well as BUNCH pickled for the winter. (Look for the canning/preservation recipe in our upcoming The StHealthy Preservation Guide and Healing Foods Library )

If you haven't heard of Kombucha these days you must be living under a rock way....OK well that may be a little extreme- but Kombucha seems to be everywhere. Perhaps you don't know why it's so popular, but it has to do with fermentation and the benefits these foods have on our health. In this podcast we are joined again by Dr. Jillian Teta, where she fills us in on all the benefits of fermented foods.
