Getting back to basics in an urban setting

Updates and progress on our modest little homestead

Its December and I have been working hard on getting the raised garden beds in. I need to find some good top soil and compost to fill the garden beds. You would think that finding dirt would not be difficult but I have not found it so. I keep calling around to find some good quality soil but no luck yet.
We use the tractor to dig a hole somewhere in the back of the property and relocate it into the garden but we now have a hole that fills with water every time it rains. Its not the best situation but we are working with what we have. It will be spring soon and I really need to get these beds filled.
I really need to start focusing on filling my compost with good quality organic material so that I can start producing my own good dirt!!

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.
