I look forward to reading Leigh's book. I am not managing a permaculture homestead and 166 year old house solo and reading other's stories keeps me in good spirits when I think I should just take the "easy" life.

Yes.... sharing the hardships as well as the blessings is one way communities can support each other.

Tell us a little more about your 6 acres.  Was it passed down from family?
Who is sharing the load with you ?
What are its greatest attributes/ qualities?  
And what do you have planned for improvement or future changes?

Welcome to the forum's by the way(it is showing you have 3 posts at this time)!

I began homesteading in 82.  I changed locations once, and I have had to step out of mode once to raise money.  While it is not easy, it is rewarding.   Keep the dream going.
 
You know it is dark times when the trees riot. I think this tiny ad is their leader:
