privacy policy and disclosure



Gardening with fatsteve is a blog about homesteading and everything around it. I spend a considerable amount of my time researching and creating posts for this blog. In order to be able to continue doing so, I do have ads and affiliate links placed throughout the site.

About Affiliates and Ads

All affiliate links are clearly marked. Ads are throughout the posts and sidebars of this site. If I add a link or ad, it’s because I truly believe it will benefit you in some way.

This blog accepts forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions and other forms of compensation. The compensation received may influence the content selected to publish and the timing of that post. Compensated content, advertising space or posts will be identified via the guidelines set forth in FTC disclosure rules.

I DO NOT promote products and service I do not use or do not believe in. I want you to know that you can always rely on my true opinions and honest recommendations. However, you should always do your own research before making any purchases.
