Becky's Farm Life

The simple life, living off God's land, one day at a time.

A place to find out new ways to live and eat for less.

With the price of gas, food and loses of jobs and job lay offs: people have been asking me more often ,” How do you do this or that?” So I’m starting this so I can point people here. I welcome any ideas on making it through this days we are in.
I by no means have all the answers. But we have lived on one income for more than ten years now. I have found new ways of doing things for less. And finding ways to use what I already have before trying to buy. Now I have to use even more creativity than before. My husband has prostate cancer, and our income has taken a big fall. But my store house is full, we are clothed and housed. We are very blessed.
Here are a few things we are doing : I only buy food on sale, I plan meals with what is in the house. I make even more things from scratch: ice cream ( our milk , cream, eggs and sugar from store), I’m in the process of making sanitary pads( they went up in price too, but I don’t have to buy anything, just use what I already have around the house), I learned to can sharp cheddar cheese( when it goes on sale, I can buy a lot, We love cheese), I make mozzarella and ricotta from our cow’s milk, I am now making our homemade Cheese Whiz and canning it in jars.This is just a start. I am willing to help any one I can make it through this day and age( prices of everything up)

So please ask a way.
Together we will make it.
TIP for today: You can grow Bush green beans in a bucket, and get a lot of beans to can or freeze. And do not plant tomatoes near corn or potatoes.
