Getting back to basics in an urban setting

We are moving to 14 acres!

My husband took a job in Savannah Georgia so well will be moving soon. He has been there for two months already but I stayed behind so that our daughter could finish out the school year. We have been looking for a rental house for about a month and we found one that couldn’t be more perfect! Its bigger then our house now, costs less, and is on 14 acres! On top of that is the fact that it has an eight stall barn! I am so excited!
I cant wait to get my hands into the soil. I plan a very large garden for the following growing season. This season is pretty much wasted since we will be moving right smack dab in the middle of the summer. I have a few tomato plants in pots and some herbs and a few other odds and ends but I didn’t not start seeds for my raised beds since we wont be here long enough for them to ripen. I planted garlic and onions before I knew we were moving but I think I will be able to harvest those before we leave. They wont be as big as I had hoped but they wont go to waste.

Oh man… now I need to start packing…… sigh

My 3 children and I live on 14 acres in Savannah Ga. I have worked hard at turning the property into a thriving, self sufficient homestead. It has been a learning experience and a lot of hard work but its so worth it. I don't understand how our country became so consumer driven. We have lost so much of our production way of life. It is my goal to get back to basics any way that I can. My three children used be so hooked on TV, video games, computers, iphones and ipads. And while they still like those things, they now spend just as much time outside as they do inside. I hope by learning to raise chickens and rabbits, growing gardens, raising goats and riding horses and spending more time outdoors in general, my children will learn to love and appreciate a simpler way of life. I knew nothing about homesteading when I started this journey but I have learned so much and love every minute of it.
