Hello from Northern Michigan.

Hello Everyone,

I'm not sure what to write about me. I live in Northern Michigan on a couple acres of land just outside of town. I work a ton (50+ hours a week) and I hate that during my free time my default is crashing on the couch with a glass of wine. I have always had a strong interest in homesteading (I raised a butchered my own chickens for a few years) but I don't have a clear idea where to start. I'd love suggestions for ways in which I can start small this winter. I have a full basement where I have been considering growing mushrooms. Does anyone else have any other recommendations or recommended reading I can start out with?

Thanks for reading! :)

Welcome to the forums! As to where to start, if you have experience doing chickens, it might be a good place to start. Once you have your own chicken manure you can start going some composting and composting will lead to a nice garden. It's interesting how all these cool activities lead to the next. Enjoy your time here.
