Over the last few years we have spent many days and nights dreaming of a homestead life- turning our little home and yard into a mini farm where we could depend upon ourselves, our little plot of land and lots of hard work for some of the basics that a family of five needs to survive.
This is a process. And we are no where close to fulfilling our dream. And although we cannot allow chickens to roam free in our backyard, own a cow or sheep or plant an orchard of fruit trees, we have found a few attainable projects that we have been able to complete for now.
Our woodpile is also looking pretty plentiful. Neatly stacked and making me feel content.
There is still quite a bit to be cut and stacked!
We are starting small. And although in reality we are limited in what we can do with our small space, there are so, so many changes that can be made. And the good news is that although we are not zoned for raising chickens, we will always have plenty of children free-ranging in and around our home each and every day.
