Years ago, as I poured over Self Reliance books and Homestead catalogs I never dreamed that I would have the opportunity to be a homestead affiliate partner with the publisher of one of my favorites, Lehman’s.
If you’ve never visited Lehman’s website or perused one of their catalogs you, my friend, are missing out! Their physical store is located in Amish country in Ohio but you can learn all about their story at this LINK.
They offer all kinds of homestead supplies ranging from Birdhouses to Plows to Cast Iron Cookware and Homestead Books galore! You can visit them on the web or request a digital or paper copy of their catalog here.
So please, go check out their store. They have some unusual stuff and I’m sure you’ll enjoy the visit!

To make Venison Tenderloin Jalapeno Poppers you’ll need venison tenderloin. If you’re a deer hunter hopefully you’ve saved a tenderloin. If not you’ll have to find a hunter willing to share. Or you could become a hunter and harvest your own fresh tenderloin this fall. Refer to our Hunting Small and Large Game post for more information on getting started.
We received this AeroGarden as a Christmas gift last year and didn’t really think about putting it up until spring. So in March when we were getting the garden itch we got it out and set it up on the kitchen window sill. It was only about a week before the sprouts started. At first the Dill took off ahead of the pack and the Curly Parsley was the last to sprout. As you can see in the video everything is doing amazing and we are in desperate need of finding the time to cut and dry these herbs for later use.
