The Latest Issue of From Scratch Magazine


Aren’t the trees just beautiful? The crisp fall air that welcomes warm drinks and chunky sweaters has arrived.

We take this time of year to communicate our gratitude. Even though life isn’t always easy – we look around at all of the blessings in our life and we enter a time of Thankfulness.

We eat loads of delicious foods with family and friends. We take walks and hikes through brisk air. We yell at the kids to make sure they have a jacket on before they go outside.

The days are shorter and the livestock still need feeding (even if it is dark and oh sooo cold). There are some serious preparations required in the garden to get it ready for next spring’s planting. And for some there are even some fall and winter crops that need to be planted.

We are so thankful for you and the opportunity to share our love of homesteading and living from scratch with all of our fellow homesteaders. Our hearts are full of gratitude and we was that you please enjoy this latest issue of From Scratch Magazine.
