Greetings, Fellow urban homesteaders! It's so great to know there are so many others nearby with similar interests. Looking forward to meeting you all.
Incorporating homesteading with modern life. Container gardening. Harvesting and preserving. Wholefood nutrition and cooking. Weston A. Price Foundation. Maintaining motivation in the face of Fast Food. Living with an HOA. Someday maybe chickens!
So far, freezing. I've tried warm water canning and drying, too.
Hi Holly! Welcome to Northern VA Homesteaders! I'm curious to hear what you're growing in containers. We've done eggplant, beans, and brussel sprouts in containers with success- and I'm always looking for other tips. Weston A Price is very interesting to me as well. I'm taking baby steps with it though as I totally echo your sentiment about trying to balance homesteading with the pace of modern life! We hope to meet you soon at one of the meetups!
