I just want to say hello since I just joined a couple hours ago. I am a small time homesteader that is looking to become more self reliant. I currently have 1 beef cow, 3 chickens for eggs and 11.25 acres. I did not get my garden in this year but hoping to accomplish it next year as I want to start canning next year. The less $ I have to spend in stores the better and the more food I grow myself the healthier I can be! Any advice is greatly appreciated as I learn more on the endeavor and learning to use the new network. Not the best pictures but it is what it is. The cow is definitely not skinny, just the angle the picture was taken.
