Welcome to “The Homestead”! Well, sort of! We call it a homesteading but in reality it is a mini-mini-farm that we are in the process of purchasing!
My dream has always been to have a small, manageable piece of land in the country, where I could have chickens for eggs, some goats for milk, and a very large garden to grow our own food!
And that is what we entered into contract to buy! But, a lot depends upon the government shutdown! If it goes on for too long, my dream my be postponed for a while.
Some of the things I want to do on my little mini-homestead can still be a reality even where God currently has us!
In fact, homesteading is simply living a lifestyle of self-sufficiency! You can do this whether you have an acre, 20 acres or even an urban apartment!
It is all about doing what you can with what you have and being as creative as possible!
In the meantime I plan on doing some…
- baking of my own bread
- knitting and crocheting our own hats, scarves, blankets, etc.
- canning my own sauces, salsa, and jams/preserves
- making my own goat’s milk soap (I do this now and it is the best soap ever!)
- and much more
Some of this would be far easier (and cheaper) on our own mini-farm but we will see what God has in store for us!
So stay tuned to find out what happens!
