I have been “homesteading” since the mid-1970’s. I have done this while living in a house on a farm, with a garden as large as an acre, in a city home with a 10′ x 20′ garden plot, and now in the suburbs with a 16′ x 25′ garden plot. I once dreamed of living a self-sufficient lifestyle on my own small farm, but that never came to pass. But, while you can take the man out of the dream, you can’t take the dream out of the man, so I continue to do the small things I can to live a life with a homesteading mindset.

I have been lost for quite some time, but I am gradually finding my way back. Getting older does not help, but no matter our age we all have limitations. We adjust and keep moving. The moving keeps us alive.
