Bootstrap beginners homestead to triage food supply in a fragile world
All the “yeses” and “amens”. This is just so fundamentally spot on, focusing on the attainable. Aim small-miss small. Midway through reading I was thinking about how & where I’d share it, and quotable points to highlight...then got to the end and blushed a little. Thank you ☺️
A perfectly written piece of such necessary information! You take the overwhelmed staring at the wall I have no idea what I’m doing stuck mentality to common sense yes, I am capable. And not just producing yet barely surviving then giving up, but a practical way to thrive with your homestead tracking. It all goes back to thinking for yourself. This is another quality you absolutely shine! I am grateful to still be reading your words. Thank you for continuing to educate the masses. You have such a gift.
Perfectly timed piece for us!! One that I will go back to over and over as we grow! Always practical words and advice from you ❤️
Perfectly said Quinn- as always. The only thing I would add, is that here in central Texas, where many of us are on 10 or less acres with very little woods, guardian dogs or llamas or even a donkey can be very helpful from fending off the local wandering farm dogs. Our own “mutt” farm dogs would never touch our livestock, were great at protecting them, but didn’t mind picking off an animal or two of the neighbors, and vice versa 😮💨😮💨😮💨😮💨. However we’ve personally never had a neighbor guardian dog touch our animals even when they strolled over the fence line for a short visit. Just my 2 cents or maybe less🤷🏻♀️
This is a beautiful piece full of practical, realistic advice. Just found your blog and I love it.. especially the importance of recordkeeping! I have spreadsheets for EVERYTHING (garden notes, inventory, budget...).
