About OFF GRID with DOUG and STACY:
We moved to our 11 acres in 2011 from a large city in the Midwest with zero carpentry and farming skills. We live with no solar / wind power / public water or well. We share our adventure to a sustainable life, growing our own food from vegetables to meat. We post videos DAILY and they range from HOW TO to EVERYDAY LIFE and NUTRITION on the off grid homestead. We were city folks just like you probably and wanted to enjoy life and have more control over our food. We share food recipes as well as natural remedies.

    I use the same watering system and my stinking hose does the same thing….I feel your pain. Will be sitting the hubby down to watch this.

  • Lisa Lowe

    Those zinnias in the background are beautiful.

  • Jan Hatchett

    The best couples are responsive to each other’s needs! Great solution.

    • Teeko Train

      It’s such a relief to finally find a relationship like that. Only bad part is you compliment each other SO well you become like one entity and when you lose someone that close you really do lose part of yourself

    • Jan Hatchett

      Teeko Train you are so right. My parents were close like that. Dad suffers since Mom has passed earlier this year. But he will tell you he wouldn’t trade his life with her for anything!

  • Crystal

    It’s true my dad coddled my mom for years and always babied her and now that he is older and needs more support all she does is complain.

    My husband treats me with respect but doesn’t baby me and for that I am grateful! I like being slightly independent 💗

  • grammy 777

    Doug I think if I was you i would stop talking about how it would make her stronger to wait, UUH I think you might be getting in more hot water. LMBO

    • Just Nicole

      My husbands the same way..just look at her face it says it all…I’ve been there🙄. They have the best intentions but the delivery…

    • Christine My Tiny Retirement

      I was thinking the same thing, hahahahaha.

    • Ellen McIntyre

      I was thinking….ohhhh, if Stacy had a cast iron skillet in her hand at that moment…. as my sister would say to her husband when he would stick his foot in his mouth, you got to sleep sometime…!

  • daughter of patriots

    You two are so cute. Enjoying living vicariously through you at the moment. ❤️

  • Jennifer R Jaeger

    Y’all crack me up. And it’s encouraging: this homesteading/farmsteading is hard work and I feel stupid so often… BUT your sharing what you try and learn helps me see it’s just a process. And worthwhile work.

    • Oz B

      farming doesn’t have to be hard or expensive, we live in the 21 century, we have technology that can make everything easy, just need knowledge!
      and with the power of the internet you can get basic knowledge in minutes, and extensive in a few day’s

  • chele michele

    Dang 2 years.. umm yeah no..Stacy that is sainthood..
    Have a good evening 🌻🌻🌻

  • Jim Griffiths

    Stacy! Amazing arms! Watering by hand is terrible, but boy! What muscles! 💪

  • Mary Tatman

    Stacy your garden is AWESOME. Doug you need to pay more attention to her work. Look at all the wood machinery you got to help yourself. I bow down to you Stacy for lasting two years. 🤗

  • Lynn Younger

    Thank God Stacy never made you wait for dinner until she finish watering lol Love you guys!

  • Steve Pailet

    am lazier I like drip irrigation. no hoses to drag no pumps

  • DataSeeker

    Considering the amount of labor and time that the 300 dollar investment saved, I would say that was one of the better expenditures you have made.

  • AZ Artist

    I cannot believe that you watered your gardens like that for SO long! You are a SAINT and Doug has no idea! Bless your heart🙏🏻💕🙏🏻

    • Debby Loving

      Doug seems to be more concerned with himself than his wife

    • GrowYour Garden 007

      Don’t listen to these jealous people team work is a mean thing and more persious then rubies.

    • Ambil Aevus

      My thought too.

    • Kris Gangwer

      All this summer, we collected the rain water and my husband and I and our son went out to water plants. Yeah, it takes a good while. But if we hadn’t done this, many plants would have died in the heat and we would not have had the amount of produce that we did. We are not totally off grid…but if we were in our 20’s or even 30s, and had to start over, we would do as Doug and Stacey have done. Hindsight is 20/20 folks. If you are young, and want to get started in this lifestyle…do you homework and then get going! Learn from those who have gone before you and created their homesteads. Its a lot of work and I know that Doug and Stacey will agree….but in the end, it is so worth it. Even small steps toward being more self-sufficient is great. Do what you can do. Homesteads are not built overnight…. Bit by bit we work toward our goals. Do what is right for you and what fits into your dreams.

      Last word: Don’t let the dreams of others ride up on you. People are going to interject their own ideas on what you should or should not do….You do what is right for you.

    • Kris Gangwer

      @Debby Loving Give me a break, really?

  • Pamela Benne

    As you get older those LUXURIES. BECOME NECCESSITIES

    • Peggy Smulligan

      Pamela, you said a mouthful!!

    • Yahuahs child

      @Uphill Homestead I have severe emphysema and I could never attempt to do what Stacey has been doing sure maybe back at her age but 56 is not aged yet and the way you women are coming on with this like Stacy should not have been mad at poor poor Doug?? Go read your bible and start at creation!!

    • Uphill Homestead

      @Yahuahs child not sure what the Bible has to do with this, and yes I know my Bible very well. I don’t have hot water, a fridge, an oven or a shower. The only heat I have is a wood stove. I have lupus , fibro and no husband to help me. Necessary is a matter of perspective.

    • UniversalDust

      @Uphill Homestead So you enjoy taking a cold bath in the winter?

    • Uphill Homestead

      @UniversalDust I can heat water on the propane stove or what I like to do is use the propane shower I have. Why do you think off grid means suffer?

  • Tom Grant

    Doug put her some soaker lines in where she just cuts the water on for a little while less water and work

  • Judy Robinson

    I cannot believe that you made her wait two years she had to do it all by hand 🖐🏻

  • Cynde Gruver

    Wow that was cheap compared to some of Doug’s toys to make his jobs easier around the homestead.Plus the savings on growing your food.Lol.Great idea Doug.

  • Art By Kathy Cappadona Jenkins

    I’m a 64 year old woman. I ran my own under ground pipes for my drip system in my small raised garden. You can set up an automatic gage for a few dollars each bed. I also built a pvc system to cover the garden when it’s cold, or too sunny, and to keep critters out when necessary. But something I learned years ago is time is money. And my time is valuable. So glad you found a way to make more time in your life. It’s good for the soul to work hard. But it’s really good to have options. You never know when you might have an injury or have to leave for a few days. An alternative way to water can be a life saver. I learned years ago to do some plumbing, some electric, fix fences, fix a leaky roof, hang doors etc. Never really had a reliable man so I did it myself. You two divide up the work beautifully. I often wonder how any one person could manage the entire Homestead. But finding timesavers is certainly a critical way to balance work with some relaxation so you can enjoy the fruits of your labor.

    • Nancy Thomas-Ward M.B.A

      so both enjoy the fruits of their labour…xxn
      i worked in a family business …i put up with not expecting people to respect my time….silly me. Got to recieve.and give..xxxn

    • Babz Z

      Kathy, I’m thinking about running some kind of irrigation in my raised beds. I’d love to see what you set up. Do you have pictures of what you did? I was thinking of using sections of drip hoses. Our beds are 4×8.

    • Kathy Jenkins

      Babz Z I don’t have photos of the system as it was under the mulch but you can buy systems that are expandable. They are available at Home Depot and other garden supply stores. One main outlet leading to a hose or a pipe You decide where to cap it off or extend it. You draw out your plan on paper. Depends how you want to do your garden. One way is to run your drip hose in the trenches and mound up the area you are planting in. That way your plant’s roots will go deep for the water and be stronger. And you can see your hoses and inspect for leaks or clogs.

    • Babz Z

      Kathy Jenkins Thanks so much for the advice!

    • Heidi Kluck

      I live off grid and do everything myself it’s not easy and sometimes too much for one person but my fiancee is handcaped and can’t help me so don’t have a nother choice. Love the way I live love eating from my own garden and love to see a project completed it can be done with determination and God’s will. Think you are an inspiration for what you have achieved. Way too go!

  • oddo pops

    Now that you have a water pump, You can install a irrigation system for stacy in the garden. 😊😊😊
