We have learned many lessons over the last 2 years about homesteading. My husband Frank has a saying he uses ALOT. He says there are taught lessons and bought lessons. Taught lessons are ones that people share their wisdom with you and you learn through their experiences. Bought lessons are ones that you actually have to make the mistake to learn what not to do next time.
Let me share 5 of our bought lessons and give you an opportunity to make them taught lessons.
