Homesteading

There are many people who are choosing to live life more simply, and closer to what our ancestors did, and who share their joys, triumphs, lessons, and knowledge with others.

Here is a website where people have listed blogs or articles pertaining to living simply. I think it is worth some time poking around to see what might interest you!

Re: Homesteading

Thought this was interesting. Didn't think having a farm with lambs would bring up the need to address this issue. Interesting.

Yes, I didn't realize that there was a market like that out there for "lambs" either.

Re: Homesteading

I have two projects going on right now. I am making my own tallow - which is taking beef fat and melting it until it becomes soft, straining it, and then pouring it into glass jars which I will keep in the refrigerator. This fat can be used to fry meat or potatoes in, and is much more better and tasty for you than oil.

My second project that I am trying right now is preserving lemons. I have taken 5 lemons, sliced them, and placed them in a quart glass jar with some cinnamon sticks, salt, and cloves, covered with plastic wrap. These will sit for about 2 weeks fermenting, at which time I will be able to use the lemon juice in recipes that call for lemon juice or zest, or teas.

I have gotten ideas from the above websites, plus others.
