Executive Function is a core set of cognitive skills that allow humans to focus attention, block out distractions, plan ahead, stay engaged, temper emotions, and think flexibly while creatively solving problems to fulfill personal and social goals. The prefrontal cortex region of the brain, which governs Executive Function, is often compared to an air traffic control system at a bu ...

Anyone can homestead anywhere, because it's really just about reconnecting to where our food comes from and the old fashioned skills and values of our grandparents. I'm here to teach you how to garden, preserve food, cook from scratch, minimize your stuff to maximize your life, and embrace a life of learning traditional homemaking arts.

On episode 92 of the podcast, I shared with you the fact that I am FINALLY able to grow zucchini after several years of not being able to. But, with great power, comes great responsibility. And I'm sure that I'm not the only one who wonders what to do with all of the abundance I am seeing. Now, I could turn it into eggs or bacon by feeding it to my…
 
On February 18, 1981, Mr. Rogers asked Jeffrey Erlinger a 10-year old quadriplegic with multiple challenges to show the television viewers how his wheelchair worked and by celebrating Jeffrey with warmth and amazement, Mr. Rogers helped crystalized the modern neurodiversity movement. For a long time, normal and abnormal have been the only two concr…
 
A couple of weeks ago I ran into a friend from church. I don't think I had seen him since before the pandemic and if I had, it hadn't been for long. As we stood there catching up, he was asking me about some of the the things we had been doing on the farm that he had seen on Facebook. And then he asked me this question; "Brian, how do you get it al…

In his 1890 seminal book, The Principles of Psychology, William James wrote, “There is no more miserable human being than one in whom nothing is habitual but indecision.” One such key form of indecision is procrastination; and research shows that procrastinators act as if there’s no future. There is a way however, to rein in the reckless disregard …
 
This week I spent camping with my son's Boy Scout troop. While there, I was able to dive into Cathy R. Payne's book, Saving the Guinea Hogs. As I was reading the book, I was struck by the fact that the policies that lead to the near extinction of the American Guinea Hog were also responsible for the near extinction of homestead community. These are…

Not now, later! These are three words we have come to value. The Marshmallow experiment from the 1960s popularized the idea of self-control and brought it into cultural consciousness; however, sometimes it has mislead us to think that kids who don’t wait for two marshmallows at the age of 4 might be destined to lead less fruitful lives. Instead of …
 
This week, leading up to the Fourth of July, I was thinking about perhaps the most famous words from our Declaration of Independence.

I thi…

Many people recommend artificial lighting to keep up egg production during the winter months, but this is hard on hens. Alternatively, I work with the seasons to allow the hens to produce eggs in their natural cycles. As a result, our homestead has high egg production in the spring, with low production in the winter. A critical homesteading skill i…
 
This week was absolutely a crazy week on the homestead.

Instead, I tried to be in the moment, spending as much time as I possibly could with them…
