I frequently get the following comment, “I really want to homestead but we’re waiting until we can afford to buy an acreage.”
I usually respond with what a fellow homestead friend once said to me: “If you have a home, you have a homestead.”
I believe that house can come in any shape or size: a tent, a mobile home, a farmhouse, an apartment, or a home in a suburban neighborhood; and that land can be an acreage or simply a collection of terra cotta pots assembled on a back patio.
In my opinion, homesteading isn’t based on the resources you have as much as it is what you do with them. Homesteading is an attitude of the heart.
Last week I shared my thoughts and ideas about homesteading where you are at with the resources you have. You can read the post here. I hope you’ll pop over and share your experiences as well.
