Lessons Learned in Homesteading: I

Got plenty of the first two.....
I wanted to make sure to document our lessons learned as they're happening rather than trying to remember everything next spring. So, in no particular order:

Tomatoes, okra, and peppers are best left to closely-spaced rows 
Pick veggies while they're young and tender (great big okra just doesn't taste as good)
Get cages for tomatoes set out before they grow too big 
When building a chicken coop, make sure the sheep can't get in BEFORE you fill the chicken feeder
Stay on top of weeding early!
Cut hay early, before it grows shoulder-high

That's it for now. There are more, and I'll get them down as they come to mind.
