You may be wondering what exactly is homesteading. Well, homesteading is a broad term and is defined differently by different people. So I will give you my family’s definition since I’m writing this blog.
Homesteading means that we do things old school as much as possible. My husband hunts and fishes when he’s able to provide us with food. I enjoy knitting and sewing which allows me to decorate our home nicely without costing us a fortune.
My husband would love to be offgrid, but that’s not feasible for us at this time.
I do want to start cloth diapering again and eventually raise chickens for eggs. My family of five goes through five dozen eggs in about two weeks! I don’t bake so that’s fried, scrambled, and omelettes! My youngest is one and eats two eggs by himself multiple times a day! Okay, you get my point. We need chickens. Lol
So in summary, homesteading is living self-sustainably and making due with what you’ve got. It can be a lot of work, but it can be a lot of fun, too.
