The homestead setting is a hot bed of potential illness, on the other hand, we are building up our immunities. Somewhere there has to be a balance. Surprisingly, this is a topic not covered much in homesteading circles. Many articles are written about animal health and the various ailments that may befall our livestock but little is said about the human side. When one considers the ramifications of an illness or injury to someone who is self-sufficient on any level, it seems worth discussing. If myself or my husband were suddenly unable to care for things around our small farm for any length of time, everyone would definitely feel the impact. Self-sufficiency lends itself to an extra dose of care.
- The Accidental Country Girl
Growing up in the city, I have had a lot to learn as a country girl. We homestead about twenty acres and always find humor in what's happening around here! I love to share my adventures in gardening, canning, baking, raising a barnyard full as well as three great kids and a husband with some crazy interests.
