Real Homesteading, we are on our own [Splitting, stacking, planting, growing & canning]

This was the #1 reason we chose to pick up and move out of the city and move the the country where we purchased our 20 acre homestead. With the times being unknown what will happen next we are becoming real life homesteaders. We are cutting, splitting and stacking our firewood from trees on our homestead, growing plants that our daughters helped me start from seedlings and in the fall we will be canning our food that we are growing.

Katie and I (Jen) were lucky enough to receive not one but two Sensei Tools Hori Digging Knifes to try out in our garden. I saw the reviews, but sometimes you can’t always believe what the ratings are. I will vouch for these knives, they worked better than I ever expected. They are sharp and get into the ground really well and I love that one side is serrated so you can easily cut through big roots.

Things are coming full circle. If you enjoy this video, please give it a thumbs up and leave a comment below, we love reading what all of you have to say. Stay safe and healthy everyone!

You can purchase a Hori Knife here: or at their store at so that you can order from outside the US if you’d like to.
