I have decided to reopen this blog but it will be more of a homestead journal than a rehash of my survival website material. Here I intend to relate my various actions, experiments and adventures in small acre self sufficiency. Within the next month or so we should be moving permanently to our country retreat and than the fun should begin. Winter will be over and spring right around the corner. I can't wait.
I've toyed with this idea for a long while now but wanted to hold off until we had something permanent to base our researches on. With our country relocation I look at this blog as a journal of our sum total activities relating to the homestead. I am retired so it affords me a lot of spare time to get things accomplished in the manner which my wife and I want it to be.
It's only a few acres but my goal is to show how effective a few acres can be when ones imagination is employed. During the months to come we can look forward to canning and dehydrating various foods, baking fresh bread and pastries along with raising our own crops and livestock. On occasion we will have some friendly get together meetings with like minded folks as well as various training classes.
So we invite you to visit us regularly and get an idea of what our life is becoming.
