Hey, guys. I’m realizing the reason I’m not posting much is because there is not much to say on the homesteading front. Since we are taking a break from land searching, I’ve pretty much got my plants in my window. And as for minimalism, I’m a pretty fresh newb, and there’s not much new I … Continue reading Moving to a new Blog
Tags: [Homesteading, garden] We’ve got some nice big Hungarian wax peppers growing! They are supposed to go from green to yellow to orange to red. We’ve got at least ten of them, even though we have no bees indoors and the plants are a bit crowded. (We were going to replant a couple, but it … Continue reading Pepper success! Strawberry Failure
We decided to not buy the land. We hired a lawyer to look at our contract, discussed, and made the tough decision. At this point, we just feel relieved. The contract was bad, our realtor was bad, hubby especially was having some doubts (not unfounded) about the land itself, so we are just done. I’m … Continue reading Hello there, again.

I think we have to do more paperwork for the loan, and then it’s the standard perc test and survey routine. We’re feeling a mix of stress over making a big … Continue reading Offer accepted!
Yesterday we made an offer on a piece of land. It’s very exciting and a little scary. Buying land is pretty much the point of no return on this whole venture. The last few weeks have been a lot of stalling and general last minute panicking. The offer process was pretty easy and mostly involved signing … Continue reading Made an Offer
I got something exciting in the mail yesterday. A new camera! I’ve wanted to upgrade from my husband’s college point-and-shoot for a good long while now, but we couldn’t afford it on his’s grad school salary. So this year, this is my birthday present. It’s an entry-level Nikon dSLR, and I am thrilled to have … Continue reading Friday Show and Tell – Now Our Week in Pictures

The summer after I graduated high school, I got a job at a summer camp as the “Barn Lady.” They had a barn and pasture with several different kinds of livestock that were donated by a local farmer. My job was to care for the animals and run a class where the kids got to … Continue reading A Summer on the Farm
