Homesteading in Maine is great fun, but can be very challenging. Our weather dictates most of what we do. Since we live off the grid, our days are ruled by the sun, and most days require careful planning. Things don't always go according to schedule, and emergencies can pop up anytime. A friend of ours has a saying "which emergency shall I deal with first," and sometimes this is how we live our life. But each day is different, rewarding, and getting us closer to our goal of becoming more self-sufficient.
This blog will be a journal of what we do day to day, information about living with solar, raising our Dexter cows, and some of our crazy ideas that work, and some that don't.
We hope you will join us in learning about homesteading (even urban homesteaders...lots of what we do is great for city living as well) and share some of what you do with us.
