New Homesteading Blog Series Coming Soon!


Myself and 4 other bloggers will be taking part in a 5-part series titled "How We Homestead".  It's a look into the decision each of us has made to take part in this simple, self-sufficient lifestyle including a look at where we are now, what our daily life looks like, and our dreams and goals for the future.

Wikipedia defines homesteading as "a lifestyle of self-sufficiency".  It further states "homesteading is characterized by subsistence agriculture, home preservation of foodstuffs, and may or may not also involve the small scale production of textiles, clothing, and craftwork for household use or sale."  This is a nice, basic description of the type of lifestyle my husband and I strive for.

The bloggers joining me on this journey are Meg from Little Homestead, Daisy from Maple Hill 101, Tammy from Our Neck Of The Woods and Amber from Making A Home.  Starting next Wednesday we'll be posting every Wednesday for 5 weeks.  All will write on the same topic as a way to explore the many ways of adopting a homesteading lifestyle.  I'm excited about this series an hope you'll visit us and share your experiences as well!

This will be interesting! Many years ago when we had a few more acres, we raised our own meat and had a huge garden from which I canned and froze produce. We had a small apple orchard and strawberries. I cooked almost everything from scratch. Hung clothes on the line. Hubby had a full time job, but doing all these things and living simply enabled me to be a stay-at-home mom. This lifestyle is still near to my heart and I'll be watching for this series!
