A New Start for an Old Blog Update

11/17 Update

First I'd like to thank you all for visiting the blog. Additional thanks go out to those of you who posted or tried to. We have first and foremost been made aware of some conflicts and difficulties with posting comments. We are working on resolving these issues, as well as updating the page and adding a ‘subscribe via email’ button. I did receive the following comments and suggestions via Kaya on Facebook.

From the Kaya Group on Facebook suggested future topics are
1. Making your own stuff--soda, snacks, deodorant, laundry soap and soaps in general,  canning, dehydrating, and solar cooking
2. How is the rabbit raising going?
And From the Kaya page on Facebook we received the following...
3. Favorite homesteading books, especially livestock, gardening, preserving and cooking and all that jazz.

I hope to cover our adventures in snack making, cooking, canning, and dehydrating in our monthly cooking and recipe article. We do not make our own soda as we don't generally drink much of it but we may possibly have been persuaded to post about making our own root beer in the future. I will also cover our favorite books on homesteading in the book review each month. You can find many of the books we enjoy on the Kaya website as well. I will be happy to post on our garden, the rabbit, and our ongoing projects on a regular basis, perhaps in a monthly update. Things we haven't yet tried but will be trying in the coming new year are soap making--laundry soap to crock pot bar soap, building and using a solar cooker and making our own deodorant. I cannot promise much information on livestock as we live in a small town on approximately half an acre and are not permitted to have livestock. We may however have a serious discussion about adding chickens to our homestead come spring.

Once again many thanks for your participation and suggestions. I look forward to covering some of these topics for you as we move ahead in our journey towards self sufficiency.

Sincerely Kaya

As always you can join the Facebook group, like the Facebook community page, and visit the website. All of these are conveniently called “Kaya Self Sufficiency”.
