I have been growing vegetable gardens in my backyard for several years, each year the gardens get a little bigger. I have installed 3 rain barrels and a few compost piles. I don’t have any alternate energy sources, or farm type animals (chickens or goats). But I like to think I am homesteading to the best of my ability. I canned some of my produce and some from farmers markets, and stored winter squashes and potatoes and carrots in a cold pantry. I make laundry detergent and live simply.
I would like to see more people practicing urban homesteading!
Urban homestead and urban homesteading, terms that should belong to all!
