I’ve been dreaming about this garden since 2012 and last year we finally made it a reality! Come with me to see how we installed our new Back to Eden garden step-by-step.
After over five years of planning our perfect homestead, we made our dream a reality last year when we purchased our home on 6.5 acres. Although my head was full of idealistic fantasies, I quickly learned the reality was much more challenging than I had bargained for. Here’s a look at the projects we tackled this past year. It may have been hard, but it was worth it.
Chickens have always been front and center in my vision for our homestead. They provide eggs, meat, compost and endless entertainment. We finally took the plunge this year with 8 baby chicks. This is how we raised them up from chicks, set up their coop, trained our dogs with them, and put them to work in the garden.
After 5 years of dreaming and planning, we bought our new home on 6.5 acres with the intention of creating our own modern homestead. We dream of living a back to the land lifestyle and eating fresh, super healthy food: the harvest from our garden, the fish we catch, and the eggs our chickens lay. Come and take a look around.
