I live near and in the same climate as the couple, I know that they travelled about 250 miles to the coast to collect their sea salt. The deer meat was left where? Our winter was super mild when that was filmed. Deer meat, venison, is safer canned than cured or smoked. Tony and Amelia are very intelligent people, but gave in to the producers need to show "drama". I just wanted to blow off a little steam in regards to the " show"...
I have little doubt that Tony and Amelia know what they are doing and have some control of what is happening in the show. By this I mean they are barterers, and so likely are getting something for every silly drama thing they do for the show. My guess is they get some grace on pushing some information point that they want to share but the production thinks is too boring when ever they do some silly unreality show drama thing.

Permaculture is tonight's blackberry pie, made from berries that I grew, and it will follow a dinner of the fish that I caught. Mowing a lawn and planting herbs can be called Permaculture: chanting while tapping a bowl is not!!!
