Hi There

This blog is my attempt to document my adventures in backyard homesteading. I was really surprised that hadn't already been snatched up because there is apparently a very strong movement out there toward suburban homesteading (and lots of people who blog about it). I'm not exactly in the suburbs, but I don't have much land either, so the backyard credo seems to be a natural fit.

There are many cleverly written blogs out there that I like to read covering all sorts of topics (the majority of which are homestead/gardening/animal husbandry related) because they make me laugh with humorous writing and well thought out posts. This blog is not an attempt to join the ranks. I have tried my hand at humorous blog writing, and I totally suck at it, so I'm not going to try to be witty or engaging. There will, however, be many, many pictures of my adventures because that is really what I do best. See, I like to write, but then I'll read old stuff that I've written and think it sounds really dumb and why did I write something so lame like that. Pictures are where it's at for me.

So please enjoy my escapades in trying to become a bit more self-reliant, even if that only means not buying eggs from the store anymore and maybe being able to grow some herbs.

So stay tuned, dear reader! It should be a wild ride, and maybe I'll even get some chuckles out of you. But that's not my goal, just so you know. I'm not sure what my goal is - I think it is mostly to post pictures and perhaps inspire others with my silly antics. Have fun!

This is me. And my better half who supports all my wannabe homesteading shenanigans.

I love your blog!! I'm sort of doing the same thing but I started with the gardening part first. Already planted my potatoe patch on St. Patrick's day. I look forward to MANY more installments! :)

Post a Comment

OK, here's the deal on commenting: I love comments!

But it's more fun for me to know who is posting comments, and then I can leave fun comments on your site, too, whatever that may be.

Isn't that fun?

FUN, I say.

If you want to be all anonymous and elusive like that, I'm alright with that, but really, it's more fun my way.

Anyway, carry on with whatever you were going to say. Don't be shy. I don't bite, and I will love you forever for your comment.
