I am a
thirty-something year old FORTY (!!!) something-year-old, who finally got to move back outside of city limits. We now happily own a 1940/1950s 2 story house on 15.5 acres in the piney woods of East Texas.
We are striving to become as self-sufficient as we can. This will mean becoming debt free, raising our own food, and utilizing our land. As of the beginning of 2010, we have established a chicken flock, a duck flock, and a large ‘kitchen garden’, an herb garden, as well as a small orchard and grapevines.
*2017 Update* – We have our chickens, a big square foot garden space, some pear/fig trees, and muscadines.
About me: When I’m not cooking or cleaning, you can always find me in the garden. I enjoy sewing, reading, canning, budgeting, and all other sorts of homemaking skills. If it has to do with homemaking, I probably have either tried it or read a lot about it!
