Year One Inventory

We can hardly believe we have been on our half acre for a year now.  The time has flown, but working with the earth through the seasons really helps us to remember the progress we’ve made over this past year.

One of the beautiful things about homesteading is you can begin anytime, anywhere.  Homesteading is a lifestyle of self-reliance.  What we love about that is we began with what we had available (a rental property), and did not feel discouraged by what we didn’t (our very own dream farm).

As soon as we moved in we began sowing seeds for an early Spring garden and kept planting through Summer and into Fall.  We view a garden as a continuous, ongoing project, so we were excited to add some fauna to our lives this year.

So, on our one year homestead-iversary, we now have:

4 egg laying chickens   IMG_20150131_144027609

and us.

We don’t know how long we will be at this house, but we will make our homestead wherever we are. We are so excited to see what this year will bring and are looking forward to documenting and sharing the journey.

Happy homesteading!
