We are thrilled to announce the launch of our brand new website and blog – www.MistyMeadowsHomestead.com
After many years of sharing our adventures in prepping, canning, gardening, wildcrafting, etc., on Facebook & Instagram, our friends and family suggested we start a blog to reach a broader audience.
And we did…
In 2016 we purchased a small homestead (10+ acres) in a need of a great deal of TLC – what a perfect time to share our progress and adventures. We started a free blog over at WordPress. While it was a great start, it limited how we could utilize our internet presence and the domain name was cumbersome and easy to forget.
This year we have decided to take the leap and start our own website and blog!
We hope our blog will be your first stop not only to learn more about gardening, canning etc., but also about community events and happenings in Mineral, WA and the surrounding areas.
So, welcome! Welcome to Misty Meadows… where the adventure begins! I hope you’ll join us!

50 plus years later, I doubt people are any better prepared for a catastrophe of this nature.
When the storm hits, will you be prepared?
