Our homestead is located in Northeast Texas. There are lots of native things growing all by themselves here that provide for us with no effort needed except the harvesting. Gotta love foraging for free food, right??
Recently in speaking with a friend about various things we’re foraging from our land, I thought it might be fun to share these with your too.
Do you wonder what a day on a Northeast Texas Homestead looks like? I’m sharing our day right here.
It’s true that there are many things we gave up when we left corporate employment. Guaranteed salary, a cushy climate-controlled workplace and paid days off for example. But all those perks just weren’t worth it to us.

These were the easiest steps for me when I first started on the path to Voluntary Simplicity. And if you’re just starting out I think they can help you too.
Times are uncertain. This COVID-19 scare has us all taking precautions. Our state and local authorities have advised that we stay away from public places. It’s recommended that we practice social distancing to flatten the curve of new cases.

I usually make plans for the day and work towards implementing them to keep things running smoothly. And then things change. Wanna see what a day on our Texas Homestead is like?
I’d already made all the preparations for my homemade Chicken & Dumplings supper. The cooked chicken was pulled from the freezer and the dumpling dough made in advance & stored in the fridge.
