I live in a beautiful house in the suburbs. I'm a SAHM to a beautiful 4 year old and I'm on the pre-school board. My husband is a conservative teacher. I'm in a dinner club and a garden club. I like strappy sandals and leopard print. I sell things on eBay. I like coffee out. I read a lot.
Part of me longs to be Laura Ingalls. What I really want is a beautiful homestead with chickens, bees, fruit trees, homegrown produce and more self sufficiency than I currently have. I daydream about spinning my own yarn and would like a pressure canner.
I grow things.
I can make my own cheese.
I've long had the idea to blog about my garden, if only to act as my own personal record about it. Maybe no one wants to read about my peas??? But I actually DO want to write about them.
I don't want a farm. (farmette? maybe? )I don't want to grow vegetables as a job or for money. I want A place to become more self sufficient and to make better use of my resources. I want to buy local. I want to eat in season. I want to knit something warm. I want to put up food for the winter.
Why wait for 40 acres and a mule.
My homestead journey starts now! Please join me along the way!
