If you’ve not yet taken steps to prepare for hurricane season, there’s no better time than the present. This year we’ve had 21 tropical cyclones, 20 tropical storms, 8 hurricanes and one major hurricane (as I write this), and there’s likely to be many more in the months to come. Being prepared is a smart idea, especially as this year has been the second most active hurricane season on record. It doesn’t take much now, and you’ll thank me when the next storm hits and you’re able to survive in style.  Clear the trees now When I was a kid...

I'm all about living sustainably, and as we welcomed our second kid into our family we were struck with the same question that most parents have asked themselves over the years. Should we be using cloth diapers? Or disposable ones? There's good arguments for both sides. But essentially it comes down to sustainability v. convenience. Now we're on our homestead, we try to reduce our waste as much as possible. There's no a garbage collector dropping by twice a week to get rid of our trash. We've got to bag it up and drop it off in bulk. For us,...
