Homesteading in Maine 101- tips please!
I have just recently started toying with the idea of homesteading and helping my family become more self sufficient. What I have found has truly been an overload of info! I'm hoping everyone here can help me wade through the info and get a better idea of where to start.
A bit about us and our situation- we are a family of 6 and after a recent involuntary change in our economical status (lol, hows that for saying it politely?!), I realized how dependant we are on the likes of walmart, hanaford, etc to survive. I really want to start making a push to become less dependent and more independent! We are not in a position to go out and buy land or livestock etc. But I am trying smaller things- working on a small vegetable garden, we have recently added 4 chickens to our family for eggs... We are doing what we can, and I would love to hear ideas and suggestions on what else we can do!
