Hi everyone - hubby and I live on 10 acres in Louisiana. I am very interested in learning about homesteading, raising gardens, clearing property, raising chickens and everything else. Money is tight for us though. Do you have suggestions for someone just getting started? Are there any great books out there that are good to read that will teach some of the basics? I've been beggin hubby to build me a clothesline to start hanging out clothes and can't wait to start trying my hand at gardening and canning.
