    What a great video. I always love seeing you guys in action. It was nice to see Justin getting in on this one too. As a man, it seems that I am fairly well in the minority amongst the blogs dealing with growing food, and homestead related things so I always enjoy seeing him in the spotlight a little to make me not feel so lonely:)
    As always, you’re ever the inspiration.

    Hello P~

    Thanks for the positive comments. Glad you enjoyed the piece. You, too, spotted the absence of Justin in previous video bits. Justin is a little shy (yeah, if you can believe that!) We, too were happy to finally see Justin “get some air time.”

    See Justin that wasn’t sooo bad was it? 😉

    It’s great to see Justin following in our father’s footsteps – having the same passion and commitment.

    Hi, my husband and I live in N. Florida on 5 acres of sand – but we have plenty of good well water! Have some chickens and “organic” vegetable plots but am getting excited about fruit trees, top-bar beekeeping, sustainable gardening and basically creating a productive homestead. Your website is a total delight and inspiration, I’m sharing it with friends in town (Tallahassee). This is the most positive revolutionary idea I’ve seen yet – something that really could make a difference! vicki in Wakulla

    My kids and I enjoy every little peak we get into your world. Thank you for taking the time to share with us! You are a blessing!

    Thanks for sharing and giving us some insights to moving beyond the consumer life into a life of productivity and self reliance. Our family lives in the San Fernando Valley not too far from you, and in a similar resource limited environment. We built some raised beds and are starting to convert our landscape into edible resources.

    We really appreciate your great example. Seeing the family work together is such an inspiration. The tough part will be the front yard, but as water prices go up, I think that lawns may soon be outlawed in many parts of Southern California-the water will be too precious!

    Great video.

    Do all 4 of you live at the urban homestead?

    Will there come a day where you will move away and if you do, will you still be coming back to the urban homestead to make it run still?
