Where is the 'like' button? The book is wonderful, and this blog is pure gold. Thanks so much, Anna. I used to comment on this blog a lot in 2010/2011 ... I did actually leave my day job and spent a summer as a farm intern (learned lots, mostly about challenges, expenses, barriers) but I kept on and now I have a modest but stable income from a business (I found a way to do my day job online) and I am putting in a ginormous garden and, well ... I'm on my way. So THANK YOU!! I wanted to say that the thing I LOVE about this blog is the unpretentious of it all. You are making it cool to be real, down to Earth, living enjoyably but simply, not wasting, re-using, etc. This is a realistic way (the only way?) for even young people to go for self-sufficiency. So ... thanks again!!!

Nestled in between John Seymour and Carla Emery, no less! Now you know you've made it :-).
