So, How to Start Homesteading Now?
Not everything you want daily, could be grown by you. Before you get into homesteading you need to decide what things you want to grow and how self-sufficient you want to be.
Some might limit themselves to growing only a few vegetables, while some grow pulses as well and other just raise and breed animals.
So, before you start, you will need to plan out everything. The land on which you will farm or the shelters in which your animals will stay, or even both.
Homesteader’s Build Everything
There is a certain set of skill every homesteader needs. One of them is knowing to build everything you will need on the farm.
Getting everything from the market or hiring an expert to do the job is not a homesteader’s way of working. Right from knowing how to make a pen for the chickens to making a fence for the crops, you’ll eventually need to learn everything.
It doesn’t need to look professional as long as homemade-rope-tied sticks could do the trick.
When you start out your homesteading adventure you won’t need a lot of equipment, a few logs or pallets, a hammer, and a few nails should do the trick. You’ll need more equipment when you grow.
Buying right from the start could help you a lot on your early adventures, but sometimes things won’t work as you planned.
You’ll change your plans on the way and know how things really work.
Choose Durability Over Shiny
The first and foremost priority is cutting down your expenses in homesteading. Buying what you set your eyes on is no longer a thing. Make everything as organic as you can.
You will have to change your attitude from luxury to necessity. Simplicity is what makes homestead a desire.
You are no longer the part of the rat race. Homestead is an art and artists create their own art.
There is nothing like throwing out old stuff and buying new things to replace it. Homesteading is all about utilizing everything and not wasting things.
We throw out stuff that we don’t need too quickly and without giving it a second thought.
Boots with holes are pots! Animal droppings are fertilizers. Old bottles work like sprinklers.
There are a lot of guides on the internet that share ideas on how to use farm remains into growing your homestead further.
Homesteading takes time but the end result is what makes the journey worth.
