Well - it's down to the wire. I'm two years away from making one of the biggest changes in my life. Self-sufficient living. Moving from the city, working in Chicago, and converting to the country homestead. I feel that this is change will suit me and my family. Moving back to the old family farm and re-making what it started out to be and what it will be in the future.
This year I have a lot on mind. Planting heirloom vegetables (and saving seeds); herb garden; building a pole barn; expanding our chickens by adding "meat" chickens; canning, drying and preserving foods; farm purchase and addition of a beautiful master suite; beekeeping; winemaking and cider making; and of course our orchard that we planted last year! There is SO much to do I am feeling the excitement of the season already! Lots to plan for - lots to coordinate - and LOTS and LOTS to talk about! Very exciting!
Stay tuned for more details. I am going to be updating more often and showing you the entire process of this wonderful experience!
