The internet is a tremendous place for connecting rabid information consumers with useful information products like German a capella, groundhog videos, and even homesteading information. We try to do a little of both rabidly consuming and usefully producing, but our brains are becoming full and we need a place to keep track of homesteading info we want to refer back to later on. Hence, a new monthly collection of links we love. Here's links we love that we found in January. Hope you like them as much as we did!
