Homesteading:  A weekly account of our journey to becoming off grid homesteaders.  Our path will be long as we are only paying in cash and our funds are very limited.  Mike and I have no idea what we're doing so we'll be learning as we go.  I know we'll make mistakes and that's ok.  It's all part of the process.  

We would love to read about your homesteading experiences, so if you'd like to share your favorite resources, tips, funny stories, recipes, books, website or even just a photo from the week, please leave a link in the comments.

  1. I hope you all stayed warm - just beautiful photos.

    1. It was soooo cold Saturday night (29 F to be exact), but we managed! Lots of wool sweaters, wool blankets, wool socks.... We tried using a propane heater, but even with the windows cracked, we were feeling dizzy after a few minutes so we shut it off. I'm thinking our camping weekends are coming to an end.

  2. I am so happy that I found your blog. I was inspired & will definitely be back soon! ~ Carrie
