Homesteading the Modern Way

It's never too late to grow into a modern homesteading lifestyle.

For decades, my husband and I struggled on and off to live a simpler life. When we were just youngsters, we thought it would be great to move to an abandoned farm, spruce it up, and eke out a subsistence living. But we never quite had the confidence to try to make that happen.

Then the other stuff of life got in the way.

Every now and again, we tried our hands at some other rendition of’ ‘simplicity’—growing a kitchen garden, foraging in our backyard and city parks for some of our food, giving only homemade Christmas and birthday presents, minimizing our belongings. Some practices stuck, but more fell by the wayside.
