Garden is almost done

It seems a bit early to call it quits this year, but due to the strange weather our gardens have pretty much failed this year. Early in the season, around May 20th, it was unseasonably warm here. It was reaching almost 80 on a daily basis (our average is 65-70) with no rain for a…

Where we are Now.

Well, this is what the front of the house looks like now! It’s almost a jungle! This arbor I built a year and a half ago is holding up our Issai Kiwi vines, they have finally reached the top this year. In back of the arbor are two American Elderberry bushes that are growing at…

Small Town Entitlement

Transparency

I’ve always vowed to be 100% transparent with you guys about the realities of our homestead. Let me be transparent now, I don’t know if we’re going to make it. This month Justin took a pay cut (about $150/month) because someone had messed up his dependents on his taxes. We owe about $800 in taxes…

Glad to be a Homesteader
