Do You Like Plants or Animals?

This is a tough question! I know most folks who read this are thinking, “I like them both!” OK, most homesteaders would say the same.

Remember, I was the kid who daydreamed about living out in the wilderness in my own log cabin, surrounded by all the friendly woodland creatures. But now that I’m older and an empty nester, I might choose plants.

Let’s consider the pros and cons of each.
