Most of us do this because we want to encourage you to take steps to be more self reliant. A few of us were talking about what would it be like to share the truth. The real side of homesteading, growing crops so we have food all year, raising animals for the table and for eggs. Picking up the remains of a garden after a strong storm, watching your fields turn to dust during a drought. How does it affect our every day life. Just how many showers do we need to take in one day? Are you ready to hear my Homestead Truths?
