As to how you can win, leave a comment to this post telling 5 of you goals/resolutions for 2010. Which must pertain to Homesteading and or Self sufficiency.
Are beginning a garden or enlarging the one you have? Are you adding chickens or rabbits? Do you plan to learn a "new to you" skill or improve on one? Maybe you will start that compost pile or bin you keep thinking of.Or introduce Medicinal Herbs into your family health and care. How about learning to save seed or starting your garden this year with Heirloom/Open Pollinated varieties?What ever it may be, no matter how small or large. We would love to know what you have in mind.
I wish all of you the best of luck and hope we are able to fill Frog's Bean pot with many more names this time around.
I will begin a new series of posts pertaining to Suburban Self sufficiency/Homesteading after the New year. There are many who only have a small lot which they can adventure with. I would rather have a yard full of edibles then grass to mow. One should never be ignorant of potential disaster or hard times. There are so many examples in this economy of families going broke like the Trucking company out West which called all their drivers on Christmas eve to drop off their trucks at certain locations due to the company closing. (Thank you Chris for that tidbit. It is a perfect example to share here.)Just like that. No other notice.
So think hard on what you will do to improve your Self Sufficiency for 2010 and be sure to leave you comment here before January 15th, 2010. Plenty of time to get those lists going.
Wishing all a prosperous, healthy & Happy New Year! Salute!
