The Secret to Homesteading.

The secret to homesteading is really very simple. Start small and start where you are. Don’t try to do everything at once or you will become overwhelmed and give up because you think it’s too hard. So start small. Start with a few plants and once you are comfortable with that get a few more going. Before you know it you will have a garden.

Start with a few chickens. Get them figured out before moving on to something else like goats or turkeys. It’s all about doing one thing first until you are comfortable with that one thing before you move on to the next. This doesn’t matter what you are doing. If you want to learn to preserve your food, learn one food at a time and learn all the ways that you can preserve that one food, then move to the next.

Start where you are. If you are in an apartment, animals really aren’t going to work so start with a few container plants that you can learn to grow them. Start slowly by providing herbs or a couple vegetables for you and your family. Once you are ready and able to get land, then you can begin to learn how to grow those vegetables or herbs in the ground.

If you try to do everything at once, it will end in a disaster and you won’t want to continue. If you start small and start where you are, you can learn as you go without losing everything all at the same time. Because believe me, when something goes wrong everything goes wrong at once.

Have a great day!
