Hi All... Hope it's okay to post this.  After quite the journey including losing my partner about 5 years ago, I moved forward with our dream and left all I had and bought 30 acres in the Ozarks where I'm blessed enough to work from home and start my homestead.  I recently searched for blogs about other women homesteading alone and not only could I not find any, but I saw other people were looking for them as well.  So... I'm not sure of the interest and I hope it's okay to post, but I just started a blog of my journey.  I also have a Facebook page with links to the posts since a lot of people FB more than they seek out blogs.  If anyone would like to read, I'd love the company!

Nice looking New Holland, I hope the electrical spirit in yours is friendlier than the one in mine!

I will be following along with your blog! I'm a single female who will hopefully be able to buy land and start my own journey in 2019.

I'm also subscribed to this YouTube channel of a single mom homesteader:

I would certainly expect you'll be alright then, that's hardly any time for anyone before you to muck things up! Mine is coming up on 3k, nearly all of which was before me, and either I'm just lucky or it was a bit neglected. Really the thing is just too complicated for its own good...

Wonderful to operate though.

Thank you!  Glad you're interested.  I also have a Facebook page with the blog posts if that's more convenient.  I'll check out the YouTube link you sent.

Yeah, that's more hours for sure!  And, you're up there in real cold country.  Brrrr....  Enjoy and stay warm!

Sounds like a fun team!  What a gift to have your mom helping at that age.  Awesome!
