Our dream is to live as self-reliant as possible on a chunk of land that we pay cash for. I know, that is a tall order huh? We will get there! We gather experience, knowledge and new skills each year that will help when we establish our dream homestead, the one that checks all the boxes on our want list. Saving, saving, saving all we can from our full time jobs, spending less to get what we need, doing and making things ourselves are all on the agenda – gotta get creative!
Depending on the season, you might find us planning how to expand the garden area for maximum food production….cutting wood for next winter’s heat…smoking salmon to can up for Christmas gifts…buying more canning jars at a garage sale (because you can never have too many jars!)…peddling our handmade soaps at the monthly farmers market…welcoming a new batch of chicks to the coop…shoveling snow and wishing for Spring again! There is always more to do and always more we want to learn.
Join us as we share what we are doing along the way!
