Hi Jill. Thanks for a great podcast. I really do enjoy you show.

Inspiration and fun

I just love listening to Jill. She is inspiring, funny but most of all real! She doesn’t pretend to know it all and it feels like she takes me on a journey of discovering and learning. I just moved to a cold climate 10
Acres property in Alberta looking for a new lifestyle. I don’t know how far I’m going to go into the home steading adventure but with Jill I feel that that doesn’t matter, she doesn’t judge or push, when I listen to a podcast I sometimes think maybe someday, maybe tomorrow or probably never and it’s all good ! We are building our own garden beds and I got her cookbook for my birthday! Jill B

So much info!

I found Jill on social media when I was researching growing veggies. I then participated in her 5 day challenge she just had and am now listening to her podcasts one after the other. She has so much info on simple things to do with homesteading, whether it is on a big or small scale! Thank you jill for sharing your knowledge be it food or bad!!
