  1. I am looking forward to recieving your magazine. Being raised on a dairy farm to a very self sufficient family. We raised all of our own food,canned, butchered, made cheese, wine, sewed our own clothes, on and on. I became a “gord-a-holic” several years ago, fell in love with gourds, I paint them. I still do can, sew etc. I will be 73 years old in June, love life!

    • I have a big box of gourds, unfinished and still dirty…I have had them for over ten years! How hard is it to prepare them to paint? I would love to paint them! We have sheep, goats, chickens, I bake my own bread, can, garden and love the country life!!

      • Wash them with a mild soap and let dry, then start painting them. After done painting spray with a clear coat sealer. To drill a hole in them first drill a small hole then go bigger, you might want to tape around where you are drilling to prevent it from splintering. They are easy to work with and a lot of fun. I am getting ready to bushel gourds as I write this. Good luck and have fun.

  8. Greetings and congratulations on your magazine. Look forward to receiving it. I sew a little a fair cook although plenty to learn yet. My dear husband Sparky plays the keyboard for our enjoyment we garden a little…well Sparky gardens a lot. In the past we have resorted to waiting for our neighbors to go to work or church and leaving bags or buckets of produce near an entry way. We have since found local food pantry that is able to receive our excess. We are a couple of elder’s who were city kids, as children played in the dirt and pretended to live in the country. We did not know each other as children, but met later in life and we try to have fun daily. That is a little about us thank you for your magazine. Oh one more thing. What is the name of the song and artist on your video? I really like the music. Thank you.

    • Oupsie! I now see the name of the artist I inquired about, just below the video. No need to answer the above question.

  10. looking forward to your magazine! It’s great to know that i’m not the only “weird old lady” out there!! I meet with a group of ladies every Tues. night to spin, knit, quilt, just whatever we want to work on that night. It’s great to be able to share my love of self sufficiency with my grand kids now. Best of luck with your magazine.

  12. This is exciting! I really like the term modern homesteader. Despite being a city girl I love pretending as much as possible that I am a homesteader. Bread bakes in the oven, sewing machine is parked on the dining room table and we are constantly planning the garden we don’t yet have. I think our first goal for 2013 is garlic.

  14. I can’t seem to find the registration form, so I really hope you will see this and sign me up. We just moved to the most wonderful house in the country, and both my husband and I come from homesteading families. Unfortunately for us, our parents wanted away from the lifestyle, so we really never learned anything. But we really are excited to start homesteading on our own :-) I can’t wait for your magazine.

I am trying to learn to hand sew though.Planning on getting milk goats this summer too. Sounds like your magazine would be perfect for us.

  18. Is this just going to be a digital magazine or are we going to be able to get a copy we can hold in our hand and read. You know us people who do things the ole timey way like to be able to set in a easy chair with a good magazine and drink a sweet tea or hot coffee.

  20. Cant wait to get your first issue. I’m a sr, living on a farm by my self here in Pa. My husand passed away from cancer 2 yrs ago, and this farm has been in his family since 1900. I love to can, bake bread, cookies and love to try new recipes. You can’t beat homemade! Life is so precious and I’m enjoying my life and I can’t wait to see what tomorrow will bring.It’s really the simple things in life!

  21. Hi. I am a 50 year old trying to start a farm in Northwest Alabama. We are planning to grow fruits, vegetables, and our own meat and have a couple of milk cows. I am raising three of my grandchildren with my second husband John. He is wonderful. I am truly looking forward to your magazine and would love to hear some stories from Estes Mills about the depression. And do not worry about the computer thing Estes, my kids tell me I am computer challenged and I work on this thing all day as a medical transcriptionist. Blessed be to all of you. KJD

  25. Great video…Love the song!
    Could you say what software was used to create the video? Looks like much more is possible with it than the basic Movie Maker software.
    Great job on the magazine!
