The Modern Homesteading Podcast, Episode 124 – June 23, 2019 – Chatting About Elderberry (Mostly) With Guest John Moody.

Homestead Updates:

Quail, quail, and more quail.

More rabbit buns on the homestead but not without complications.

Rain, rain, and more rain.

It’s starting to really cause me some problems in the garden.

Should be closing this week on a property we are buying next door.

Chatting About Elderberry (Mostly) With Guest John Moody

John is a return guest who you can also hear on episode 112. He discovered more than a decade ago that his diet was killing him, with duodenal ulcers, seasonal allergies, and other health problems. So, the family began to transition to local foods and local food distribution. Eventually, he relocated his family to 35 acres of land to put his learning into practice. He is the founder of the Whole Life Buying Club, and also speaks at many local, regional, and national events on food, farming, and nutrition. Author of the Frugal Homesteader Handbook, he has three books forthcoming to help growers and gardeners, including one on weed control and one on elderberry.
