What I am wondering now is how much land would we need to be self sufficient on? Not that we could be entirely self sufficient, but as much as would be possible. I have an amazing book called The Backyard Homestead. It has so much great information on maximizing your space, and producing as much as possible on a quarter of an acre. Which is awesome, since that is about the size of our lot. It has some intriguing ideas that I hope to put into practice this year.
But for now, I am mainly looking forward to cleaning up my garden spaces, and seeing how that goes, hopefully this week! What have you been up to lately? Is it looking like spring where you are? How much land do you think is really necessary to live on?
I am linking up to the Barn Hop again today. Such a great resource for information!
