Do you find as things change in this world, you want to start getting into baking your own bread and raising your own garden? Make it more wholesome for your family?
I try not to talk about it a lot, but I am big into organic, sustainable, environmental, etc.
I don't want to be pushy or preachy about it because it's an individual lifestyle choice.
I think it's in my genes a bit. My Hungarian grandmother was raised on a tenant farm in Fox Lake, and my Great-grandparents on the other side were Polish farmer's from Wisconsin all the way back to the 1880's before they became all city-fied and that.
I try to do my part ( except for that disposable diaper thing. Boy, did I fill the landfill on those.), but wanted to recognize a few of the ladies in blogland who are also doing a back to the basics with home baked bread, chickens and more, and introduce you to them incase you are interested.
Let me introduce you to.....
Manuela. She was one of the first blogs I read that lead a very similar lifestyle to mine. She is the preservation, no debt, reap the bounty queen~ ! The wonderful woman also generously coached me through my first season of potatoes!
Heather, who now is a certified chicken owner and bread baker. It's my dream coop! It's bigger that my house!
Anne Marie, super-sexy and sustabiable, runs a CSA and more.. what else could you ask for? This is her potager garden!
How about Jayme??? She bakes bread, reads my fave magazine, Mother Earth News and has her own flock plus more... Though the crazy lady did just get a rooster. :)
And one of my favorites, Homestead Revival. Everything you want to know about doing all of those home-steady things like keeping bees and keeping your harvest.
So what do you think about the new wave? Do you want me to post more about it? Are you working towards sustainable and down home living? Back to the basics? Put your link in the comments, we'd love to stop by for a visit.
