Welcome to the Homestead Blog Hop!
It’s a NEW YEAR and we’re starting it out with a bang! If you weren’t aware, I’m still on a mission to get our urban farm up and running by 2020, and we are in early plans of land development over this way. Anyway, late last year we met with an architectural renderer to see if they could put our vision on paper. They could, we just needed to pay. And I sat on it, scared out of my mind to ask my friends and associates to invest in our vision. Well, I asked just for the money to cover the 3D rendering, and got much more than I anticipated. If you’re interested in helping, or reading our story, or sharing what we’re doing you can click on the photo below (the amount is updated) and go directly to the group. We have ALL the plans in there, and we’re just so excited to bring a love of agriculture to our neighborhood in Chicago.
In the meantime we’re ordering seeds for our own backyard garden and prepping to build the forever being built chicken coop. What are you up to? Any new recipes that I need to know about? Share them below!
Now on to the hop…
Homestead Blog Hop will take place every Wednesday and is for all things homesteading: real food recipes, farm animals, crafts, DIY, how-to’s, gardening, anything from-scratch, natural home/health, self-sufficiency, self-reliance, natural remedies, essential oils, & more! Basically anything related to homesteading.
