The first thing that you have to do is to find a space to build your homestead. It could be your backyard, front yard, garage, empty lot, window boxes or even your rooftop. You don't necessarily need a very large space for your mini-farm.

You could actually grow different types of plants in a small space. So the size of the space is not a major issue. As long as you have space then that's okay.

The next thing that you have to do is to buy your containers. If you're planting on a balcony or a garage then you will need pots or tubs. But if you're planting in your front yard or your backyard then you could just dig up the ground. You could also use pots or tubs though if you don't want to dig your lawn.

The next thing that you have to do is to acquire seeds. If you're a beginner it would be advisable to start with simple plants, that don’t require a lot of maintenance. Herbs, tomatoes, and chilis are great to start with. Once you have planted your seeds, all you have to do is to water and tend them every day until they grow.

Try to read books on farming and gardening also to know more about the fruits and vegetables in season and as well as how to maintain them.
