The House and Homestead

Hi Everyone!

I’d like to share a link to The House and Homestead. This is a blog and educational site run by a former city girl turned modern homesteader, living in Canada, named Anna.

Anna is a down to earth, thoughtful person with mad vegetable gardening and canning skills. She also does an incredible job of demonstrating effective ways to include young children in homesteading activities.

For example, check out this video on harvesting rhubarb and making fruit leather (a kid-friendly favorite).

What I admire most about Anna, though, is that you can tell from her approach to homestead blogging that she’s a professional with both a journalism and teaching degree. She also employs those skill sets, and her self-sufficiency know-how, to produce a high quality — FREE– monthly homesteading magazine.

I have to be honest… if Anna wasn’t such a cool person that I like so much, I’d be a little envious of her beautiful magazine. I’ve been dreaming of making my own Epicurean Homesteading magazine. But I haven’t quite got all my ideas formalized yet. (The green demon tempts us all at times).

As it is though, I am so glad Anna’s doing what she loves and sharing her expertise in journalism, education, and homesteading for us to enjoy. (And that I can be inspired by her work).

If you aren’t on Anna’s homesteading magazine email list, please go sign up! Trust me! You don’t want to miss an issue – especially not the October issue.

Shameless Self-Promotion

Full-disclosure — I also have a self-promotional reason for sharing this post today to make sure you are signed up for the October issue of The House & Homestead’s Modern Homesteading Magazine.

Since I’d been studying/admiring Anna’s work, I thought the decent thing to do would be to tell her I had a crush on her blog and magazine. So I did. Well… that interaction led to us collaborating on a few things including the October magazine.

Now, I don’t want to give away anything content related. Anna’s the one doing all the work, so she gets to be the first to share it. But since I have a book coming out called Grow your Own Spices, I think you can guess what the subject matter might be.

So, I’d like to say a big thank you to Anna for letting me be involved in the October issue. Also note, the images in this post (except my book cover) are from The House and Homestead home page and YouTube channel.

Please share this post, and Anna’s information, with everyone you think would be interested in a beautiful, useful, and free homesteading magazine!
