FEATURED COMMENT

Thank you to online reader MARGARETB for your comment on How to Work: The Most Important Self-Reliance Skill Ever:

"You forgot one vital step: Prioritize - the leaky roof trumps a new vanity in the bath kind of thing. Which task is vital to be completed today. Animals must be fed and watered daily. The garden must be planted at the right season. Berries must be picked when ripe. Etc."

Do you have some knowledge to share about homesteading and self-reliance? Leave a follow-up comment.
