Taking Back the USA

 

There's a lot of political conversation about taking back the USA and that's great. I think one of the most pleasurable ways to take back the USA is through homesteading, crafting and wildcrafting. What better way to live independent lives than to be independent or at the very least be able to live an independent natural lifestyle if the need arises. I also find it relaxing to learn new ways to self reliant sustainable self sufficiency.

 

That's why my new Homestead Independence means so much to me. After a few years of talking to my daughter about the fact that even living in an apartment in San Francisco California she and her husband could grow tomatoes, basil, lettuce and other vegetables in planter containers. They did it a few years ago and they love it as well as enjoy reaching out on their front stoop and getting a vine ripened tomato and some lettuce too!

 

There's a lot of talk about the good ole days of the USA. One easy way to recapture some of that bygone era is to engage in garden [even in planters], small backyard animals such as geese, and wildcrafting.

 

We even have a local farmer that we contract to grow a pig for us which we then have butchered at a local butchery for our meat. It's great to get out of the Agribusiness loop as much as possible.

 

I look forward to sharing ideas and suggestions. Let's take back some our of our independence.
