Homesteading mistakes can be extremely costly and a waste of time. Living on a homestead means a virtually endless amount of things that need to be done. Wood to be chopped, crops to be planted and harvested, food to preserve, animals to be tended to, laundry to be washed and hung, soap to be made… It’s a fulfilling life, but a busy one as well. Do your research before you jump into a new skill, and get your homestead off to the best start possible!
