OK. It’s the holiday season — with all that entails, which is almost every minute of your waking life. But if you're feeling like time stands still and is just one big red bow, you might want to take some time out and peruse all of the Modern Homesteading articles on the MOTHER EARTH NEWS website.
There are hundreds of articles — in chronological order — on all things related to homesteading: personal blogs, all about chickens, fencing, Country Lore tips, tools, machines and so much more. Make note of the ones you find the most compelling. Then, when you need a few minutes to be transported into the future, just read a few. You might discover a new winter game to play with your family, the perfect design for a garden tool shed or better ways to tend the woodstove. It would take you months to read them all. Enjoy!
