Howdy, I am glad you are here. We have been getting the “feel” for homesteading over the last 7 years while we worked on getting debt free. We are down to the last 17 months of house payments and debt and so we are starting the “homestead” seriously. We have used the last 7 years to try different animals, grow different things, learn, and acquire new skills. Now that doing it “steadily” is upon us I want to go ahead and bring everyone along on the journey.
I have batted the blog idea around a little in my head for a few years. I even started one on blogger but just never really “worked” it. Between my store, working 3 jobs, and all those other things I did not give it the attention it needed. Now that I am down to just 2 jobs, and only have my 3 year old granddaughter living at home I am finding the time needed to take the photo’s, share the triumphs and tribulations of this crazy life, and think of all the things we have been through that might help someone else.
I am thankful that you are here. I appreciate the desire you have to know about this lifestyle, and particularly, our homestead. Grab a cup of coffee, set back, relax, and enjoy your time here.
I welcome questions, comments, ideas, and also hearing about your journey to this simple life as well.
