Blog Update!
For those of you not following me on Facebook, as of the Summer of 2019 I've moved to Central WA, to a tiny mountain town of less than 1,000 people.

I will be covering my exploits here in the Cascades, as I try to further reduce my impact on the environment. With the same attitude, just at a higher altitude!

What are your favorite things about homesteading?

These are a few of my favorite things!
As we move into the middle of summer and head into fall, I'm reminded of so many of the things I love about homesteading (urban, suburban or rural, it doesn't really matter, now does it?).

I spend the long, summer days working in the garden with my son, watering and harvesting food for my family. I spend the evenings knitting or sewing blankets and quilts or working on the next project to keep my family warm when the weather cools. I spend the weekends baking or cooking from foods, fresh out of the garden or preserved in the pantry. And, finally, I get to share my experiences with the community of friends I have online. That's you people!

As such, I wanted to find out what parts of homesteading you like the most. I know it's hard to choose, so I made this a multiple select poll. Try to keep it to your Top 5, if you can:

If you could only pick just one thing, what would it be?

if I had to pick one, it would be "being more self-sufficient."

My absolute favorite thing about homesteading is cooking creative meals with farm-fresh ingredients because home cooking is a radical activity that is already changing our food system—we have over 8,200 farmers' markets nationwide, which is a 76% increase since 2008!). Thanks for asking.
