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.

It's New Years Day, 2019, and our U-Boxes have arrived! 

We'll move to Northern Arizona, buy some land, raise chickens and figure out how to live off grid. 

After looking hard at the cost of renting a truck vs. a box, we chose U-Box and here's why.

Very late on the night of October 8th (a Sunday night) a large number of fires were sparked in Northern California. Strange and weird fires that dotted the map of Northern California.

As the hype built in the weeks before the Revelation 12 sign on September 23rd, 2017, I was full of both hope and regret. For me, it was like being on a long road trip and finally seeing a long-awaited sign. Sure, you have GPS and all, maybe even a pape...
