Hello Everyone, I wanted to start a Homesteading Thread for us who have small properties. I currently have 5 chickens and several small gardens. I hang my clothes out on a line. I am an avid coupon clipper and thrift store shopper. I have about a half acre of property, but I have a major pipe line of natural gas running through my land that I can not build or plant within 20 ft of it. I also have a well and a septic system, which again can not be planted near. So it does make my half acre much smaller to work with. We are a military family and do not have much money, anything I do helps out a lot. Hopefully we all can share experiences, ideas and knowledge.
