The Homestead Life:
A segment where each episode I share something that’s better in my life because of homesteading.
Enjoying chores around the homestead with my grandson the other day. Feeding animals, seed starting in the greenhouse, adding compost and soil to the raised beds, whatever I was doing he was right there beside me convinced he was helping.
Being able to pass on homesteading skills, work ethic and a love of the lifestyle to my grandchildren is a great part of the homestead life.
