This page is a lovely chaotic journal about my ongoing trials and victories in life on a wanna-be homestead. Nothing is perfect here and I'm generally learning through failing (over and over and over).
So far, we have raised 14 chicks (5 easter egg chickens, 2 silky banthams, 2 turkeys, 5 guineas) and inherited about the same amount of all different breeds. We also have ducks (anconas and various mixed breeds), three goats, a pig, and two dogs. It sure is a crazy place, but so far we're doing alright.
Needless to say, Hubby and I are sure blessed to have so many resources!
Unlike last year, I will not be planning a wedding right before planting season, so I'm ultra-eager to get the ball rolling. These photos here give you an idea of just how crazy the house is right now--a giant folding table covered in dirt?? In my LIVINGROOM! That's right, with all the supplies I could scavenge I've got tons of seeds growing. My favorite is kale, featured below already sprouting before the rest!

Anyone else on the homestead bandwagon? How did you get started?
