We hope to start homesteading this year in a new home once we find a place to settle. I love hearing from folks who have been successful already.

You may want to can your crops, yet never make your own bread, etc.
Read this article bearing in mind there may one be a few suggestions relevant for you and your homestead endeavors, but those suggestions might make all the difference in the world.
