|A portion of our soon-to-be back yard. This will eventually become gardens. Look at all that sky!!|
I am so excited to have wide open spaces! To see the vast expanse of blue skies that stretch for miles! To inhale the sweet smell of corn fields in the warm summer evenings! To watch fireflies dance in the dusk! To walk among the rows of garden plants and harvest an incredible bounty! To hear my chickens cheer when they lay eggs! To have two toilets!!
(For the record, we've never had two toilets at any house we've lived in. It'll be glorious.)
To finally see our dream realized! To see a new chapter of our lives started!!
As our little farm grows, I'll post updates--and it will grow! Over time, we plan to have gardens (vegetable, herb, and butterfly/bee/cut flower), a small fruit & nut orchard, maybe some grapevines, a pond, chickens, a dog, barn cats...and who knows what else! All of it will keep us busy for sure. I'll share victories and mistakes, and hope that others can learn from both. This is entirely new for us, but we're both very excited about the possibilities that this home will open for us.
|Not my chickens. I occasionally see these guys (ladies?) on the way to work in the mornings, so I took a picture one day.|
Praise the Lord! He continues to surprise us and bless us, even in times when it doesn't feel like a blessing. And oh my gosh, what a learning experience this has been!
