D-I-Why Not homestead thinking big

“You do what you can”: Lloyd Kahn & Lesley Creed

In the 60s, a lot of people, a lot of hippies got really carried away with y’know, doing things the old way, and it typically didn’t last. To do everything yourself, try to raise all your own food, and then they just got tired of it.

When I planted wheat, and went through the whole process, planting the seed to getting flour, it was just really complicated and I realized well you gotta do nothing but wheat if you’re going to do that and so I can’t be self-sufficient in wheat…

It’s a direction, self-sufficiency. … You do what you can do, as much of it as you can.
