    So many inspiring blogs, thank you for putting the list all in one place… and for allowing people to post their own in the comments – I read avidly in the hope of learning new tips for coping with homesteading in high heat temperatures – all you guys with green grass in summer do make me very envious.

    Love this post. What a great idea and I’m looking forward to getting stuck in to some reading on one of the wet days. We are just getting started on our own little journey over here in Ireland. I’ve started to record the progress in my own blog
    If you got a chance I’d love a bit of feedback.
    Many thanks!

    What a great list!! I definitely have some reading to do! Come check out my blog The Homestead Woman I’m reclaiming an old ranch house on an acre in the SF Bay Area. I’m harvesting vintage values to fuel self reliance. I’m just getting started and there’s so much to come! Cheers!

    This is a fun list! The number of homesteading blogs I subscribe to just got a little bigger. Thanks for posting!
