I came across this site the other day, and thought it would be of considerable interest. Not all the ideas are applicable today, but it is a gold-mine of information about how things used to be done. Enjoy!

That is a great site! I have an interest in homesteading/self-sufficiency but also I am an activity director at an assisted living facility. This will be a great resource for me to use with them. Thank you so much for sharing that.

Bumping this up, for anyone who may be new to this forum.

(I lost all my "favourites" recently when the computer crashed, so I was glad to be able to retrieve this one for myself.)

Thank you very much for bumping that up Maggie. I have shared it with all my homesteading friends. We all try to live selfsufficiently as much as possible. When we make mistakes,we wonder how they ever did it back in the day!!

I use to love the magazine Mother Earth, and the Farmers Almanac - also the foxfire books weren't bad. Are there any good books written by the Amish? One I read had some details about gardening, canning, plowing.These websites and books are very helpful keep them coming!!!

What a brilliant web site! And the lead from underground shelters to disastershelters.net is fascinating!!! Though somewhat grim . . . .

I read waltons homesteading site with interest, my interest peaked even more when it was suggested that those days are no more? well for the most part anyhow. I say this because I am in fact hand digging my water well just as our forefathers had done, yes its a lot of work and because I am 30 miles from town finding help is hard to find these days. I hope to be completed by the end of summer 2005.

I have been buying grains from them for home milling since 1997. Their quality & information is great.
