The Small

Most of the time when we homestead; when we farm: when we live sustainably, we see the big. 

The big picture of our place in the world and our role in it.  We see our homesteading plan as the overview of our hopes and dreams and all we hope to accomplish in the years before us. 

And yet, when we get down to the nitty-gritty of our plans and we actually get our hands dirty, it becomes strikingly apparent that it is the small, the insignificant and the simple that move us forward. 

May your day also be filled with the small wonders of homesteading.


  1. So very true! It is the small things we do each day that add up to our long-term successes in homesteading.
