How we Named our Blog
Beans - the goal! Grow our own food and and store up some, too.
Boots speak of the hard work and determination it takes.
Butterflies remind us to take a break, have some fun, and enjoy the beauty of it all.
Beans, Boots & Butterflies
Our big dream was to get out of the city, find a house with some good land out in the country, and learn to be more self-
sufficient. We left our home in February 2019, bought a truck and a camper and explored Arizona, Texas, and New Mexico. We did a lot of research and finally found our homestead in December. It was a real adventure living in a 26 ft. trailer for 10 months with 2 big dogs! After they handed us the keys to our new home, we started digging garden beds, got us some chickens, took a big breath and started homesteading. Let the projects begin!
Next spring we want to start a market garden, there's so much to learn! In this blog we tell the story of how we found a homestead. We also look at backyard farming, self-sufficiency, permaculture, prepping and sustainable living. We'll also investigate off-grid kitchen appliances and human powered tools. That way, if the grid goes out, we'll be ready.
We love organic gardening and a healthy lifestyle. Here you will stay informed on the Anti-GMO movement, leading edge permaculture, homesteading, planet change, alternative remedies and self-sufficient living. Join us as we learn all we can before the next global panic.
