My husband and I both come from backgrounds of DIY everything. The longer we have been married, the more we have moved toward making as many things as possible from “scratch,” including making our own food, growing a garden, canning, freezing and dehydrating food, making soap, sewing, knitting and more. We have begun to teach our four children this lifestyle as well, getting them involved in the hopes it will carry forward into future generations, just as we learned from our parents and grandparents. As I learn new things and rediscover old things, I hope to share what I learn, what to do – or in some cases what NOT to do – in the journey toward a more self-sufficient lifestyle in a somewhat rural setting. We are hoping to eventually go to a completely rural setting where we can realize our dream of a mini farm and business for the future.
