I was born and raised 20 minutes from Boston, MA. At the age of 17, I was diagnosed with Anxiety. My personal experience with the prescribed medication was NOT POSITIVE. So I decided to find better way. I didn't know it at the time but, that was the BEGINNING for me! I have been “FINDING A BETTER WAY” in all areas in my life ever since. Better ways of how to create a modern homestead affordably, and a better way to provide my family with healthy foods, and so….. much MORE!

At Lumnah Acres we hope our experiences can help guide you to find YOUR BETTER WAY! Please join us in sharing our journey with you, let us be a guide to Modern Homesteading, Self-Sufficiency, and FREEDOM for you!

    I recommend getting the gravel shipped before it snows. Which will be sooner than you think.

  • Jim Halliwell

    So pleased we are back to building.

  • Tori Mills

    I was telling my boyfriend about your nailing incident and how you were trying to come up with a shirt idea! Since you technically nailed yourself through your shirt, he suggested to put some sort of design that looks like a nail coming out of the corner of the shirt where you hit yourself, and then something on it about how you ‘nailed it’. Just a thought for ya!

  • Sharon LaRochelle

    Your broth with have a richer color if you leave the onion skins on.

  • Maryclaire Kalamafoni

  • larry tait

    I’m doing the trim today too! I finished the tin on the overhang yesterday, so today is trim. Garage Doors and windows after that.

  • Jim Purl

    Seeing your snow plow this morning reminded me that when I first started watching you it was 6 months of snow related items with Gina going to work and Olivia going to school—it is all so much better now.. Thank you for allowing me to be a daily part of it. Jim from Texas

    • Sam Val

      Nicely put. I feel the same way. The Lumnahs are a part of my daily routine. Al, Gina and Olivia take us along on their days activities and we feel like we’re there with them, looking over their collective shoulders, so to say. Much respect here!

  • coryart

    The outside (paper) layer of onions is good for broth. It adds color.

  • Christopher Cooper

    Did you get your drone fixed or did you have to replace it.

  • larry tait

    Al, “Looks good.”
    No Al! “Looks great!” ❤️
    Love the Dinosaur on the InstaPot Gina. Where did you get it?

    I bought a bay tree 11 years ago and oh boy fresh bay leaves are so much nicer, now because I have to trim the tree a lot more now it’s older I put the branches I trim off into the freezer with the leaves still attached and pull one off as needed I did dry them once but I have found that freezing them keeps their flavour better 😊😊😊 as for the rosemary I bought one bush and spent 2 years doing cuttings to build a full front hedge across the front of the yard. 😊😊

    • Kirsten Whitworth

      That all sounds wonderful! My bay tree is 3 years old and is getting bigger and bigger – even though I now have to cage it to keep the deer from eating it.
      The rosemary I planted 5 years ago isn’t getting enough sun. Instead of moving it, though, I got a small one last week. The new one is called Barbecue; it has nice straight stems that I think can be used as skewers.
      My favorite herb, though is parsley.

    • Angela Herremans

      @Kirsten Whitworth 😹yes that’s the rosemary bush I have growing I cut the long branches off it for the BBQ they make great skewers for lamb and veggie kebabs that was one of the reasons for propagating it to build a hedgerow in the first place 😻😻😻you need to use a mettle skewer to make the holes in the meat and veggies as the branches are not strong enough to do that and it’s best to take the leaves of as well which I have taken to putting in the freeze as well until needed 😹😹😹i now grow a veggie called “Parsley Parsnip” I love parsnip and when I for the parsley parsnip at the Diggers club here in Australia I just had to try well they are the best veggies in the garden and because of where I live I can grow them all year around 😹😹😹 I have taken to growing what is called heritage veggies now as I have found they have better colours and flavour and having purple, yellow, white, red as well as orange carrots is fun in the stews today 😹
      I am lucky the deer around here only go in the front yard and not in my veggie yard or back yard I stopped planting nice plants in the front and I let them eat wats left in the front 😹😹they leave the banksia rose, tea rose and rosemary alone but the rest they trim down once in a while 😹😹😹i also get the wallabies smaller version of the kangaroo 😹😹 they eat the grass and the native pea i grow for them all around the gardens and yards so they leave the rest alone 😻 and the possums don’t eat much but they have never gone into the veggie garden in the past 11 years even though I have seen them in the garden I have taken to leaving out fruit once in a while for them and the cockatoos in the bird feeder as that’s where the possums spend most of the time at night 😹😹😹
      On the bay tree you can also use the branches for skewers as well they are thicker and stronger but go well with beef kababs 😹😹😹

    • paintedpilgrim

      @Kirsten Whitworth I’ve grown that variety, it can be used as skewers BUT it needs to dry a little….

    • Kirsten Whitworth

      @Angela Herremans Awesome!

    • Kirsten Whitworth

      @paintedpilgrim That’s OK. I dry many things and have a wonderful passive energy dehydrator that keeps out the bugs.

    Gina try leaving your skins on the onions when making broth, it adds such a lovely color to it and then add a tablespoon of turmeric in it. Very very good antioxidant and also leaves a nice color. Not a whole lot of taste to it. Someone you may enjoy watching would be Heather @ The Kneady Homesteader.
