I know a lot of you have been around for awhile, but I have been getting a lot of new readers. I think there is a little confusion over where we live and what we are doing. So, I'm going to clarify a few things again for all the new readers :) We live in a small town setting on a small lot. Town homesteading, if you will, we purchased this property as an investment. We have lived here for just over a year and plan on fixing and improving our property for the next 2-4 years. Our BIG goal, is to buy ten to twenty acres and homestead full time. We are working on putting things into place now, that will pay off later. We also have a goal to learn as much as we can, right now while we have the time. Because, we know how much work it is to start a homestead from scratch. How do we know? Well, for five years we lived off-grid building up our five acre homestead. We sold our five acre homestead a year ago, to regroup, reinvest, and plan for our future.
I know a lot of you like the Off-Grid info, and part of you would like more on town homesteading. I plan on giving a little of both worlds. We will revisit our old homestead, and show you how we apply what we learned from homesteading those five years. We are working on permaculture design on our town lot and it's really changing how we look at gardening. Like I said before, "I really believe you can homestead anywhere, it's a mindset more than anything".
Daniel made it out of pallet wood, and I love it.
Happy almost Spring!
