🥦 Last January, we moved because we wanted to get more land to grow stuff. So this spring, my wife and I planted a few veggies as part of a test run. If everything goes well, we’ll expand the garden next year.

🐝 We’re also planning on getting a beehive, chicken and maybe a couple of Nigerian dwarf goats. What started out as a “should we really consider doing this” kind of idea has become a really exciting opportunity during this lockdown.

The more we think about the prospect of growing more of the food we eat, the more excited we get.

🛒 In particular, because I don’t enjoy our weekly trips to Whole Foods and Costco anymore. I used to, but, right now, I’m avoiding it because I have no interest in waiting in line in front of the store to get in while wearing a hazmat suit.

🌭 While both the extended veggie garden and livestock are still a year away, I will start making my own salami and sausages as soon as Amazon delivers my sausage stuffer — hopefully by this weekend. I’ll also begin curing my own ham using Redmond Real Salt.

💵 So stay tuned for more information and new videos documenting that journey. And who knows, maybe we’ll end up with an online store selling those hand-crafted products. If anyone is interested, let me know!

What’s New

In addition to all of the above, I’ve also been busy producing new content for my blog and YouTube channel. Check it out!

What Else I’ve Been Up To

I picked up a new book called Lifespan: Why We Age and Why We Don’t Have To.*

As the title already implies, the author (David Sinclair, a Harvard Medical School scientist), proposes that aging is a disease that can be cured. It sounds crazy but on a molecular level, aging follows the same processes as most of the metabolic diseases that often accompany it — such as heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s, etc.

We already know that our lifestyle is the main factor that influences the development of such ailments. Well, guess what, it looks like that we can significantly influence and delay aging too.

I’ll be doing a video that will summarize what I’ve learned, so stay tuned for that.

Wrap Up

That’s it for May! Stay healthy, eat well, sleep well, exercise and thanks so much for your continued loyalty!
