You know you’re a homesteader when:

 

 

You have more work clothes than dress clothes

~

You’re more excited about seed catalogs than current event magazines

You’d rather be doing yard work than sitting inside all day 

~

ANIMALS decide how early you get up

30 minutes to the nearest store is nothing for you

Planning your gardens takes many days, multiple books, and a lot of time on Pinterest

Your therapy involves talking to animals or weeding the gardens

~

When someone asks what you want for your birthday/Christmas and you bring out farming/homesteading magazines to show them

~

Every animal on your property has a name (birds, squirrels, rabbits, stray cats, raccoons, etc.)

You spend more time outside than inside

You can name more types of chickens than Kardashians

  1. Love this!!!! I would just adjust the rain one to “you love when it rains because it reveals your rain tanks!” and here in Northwest Oregon, “your entire existence is dictated by when the sun comes out (outdoor projects rule, everything else gets put aside)” and I’d probably also add “you don’t schedule any vacations in late summer or fall because you know that’s harvest and canning season!” 😁😁😁

    1. Those are perfect additions! Outdoor projects are definitely better! And I can’t imagine anyone crazy enough to plan a vacation around late summer and early fall! Way to much to harvest and do, along with getting ready for winter! 😂 Thanks for the additions! 😁
