It’s no secret that I’ve been working toward producing most of my family’s food for the past several years. And while I don’t even come close to qualifying as a real homesteader, I do seem to represent a rapidly growing segment of the gardening population: people who have become extremely conscientious about where and how they get their food. Think locavore on organic fertilizer. You know, those of us who’ve rediscovered the wisdom of the “Victory Garden” of yore and supplement the rest of our food needs with local shopping.
So imagine my delight at being asked to contribute to the first issue of New Homesteading magazine. You can check out my article, What’s the Difference Between Heirloom, Hybrid, and GMO Seeds?, on page 32 of the magazine.
If you have any interest in living closer to the land in a more sustainable and affordable way, I hope you’ll consider ordering yourself a subscription. They’re good folks providing good information. New Homesteading Magazine will help you learn how to make the move from the fast paced urban life, to the simple debt free self-sufficient lifestyle of homesteading.

Wow! What an honor! Congratulations!
I’ve been working on growing more and more food for my family too over the past several years. It’s May 1st and I still have potatoes in the basement, chicken stock and some vegetables in the freezer. And now here come the green onions, wild leeks and asparagus right in the back yard! Isn’t it a wonderful feeling?! It’s always nice to find others out there striving for the same goal. Thank you for sharing a bit of your experience, and I’ll look for your magazine article.
Thanks Hannah. I’m impressed that you still have potatoes! That would be a feat in this mostly Irish family. : )
