On to the Next Step!

Well, I did it. I actually did it. I made the leap from dream to hopeful reality. 

I set up a GoFundMe to help me expand the garden and future areas for the chickens and other livestock across the street where we're building our house.
I moved here with the intention of having a garden large enough to be able to donate and sell our organic heirloom produce for cheaper than most. I want to make natural healthy living within reach and affordable for everyone around me. It's time to start. There's no time like the present and the present moves quickly.

I feel like I've done something crazy. A GoFundMe? Really? Me? Yup. I did that, I am doing it. Maybe crazy isn't what I'm feeling, maybe it's excitement. Excitement for finally going for it. I'm taking a leap of faith here and it's not just the GoFundMe; I'm finally taking the steps to move on to the next phase of my life. I'm expanding my animals, my stock pile of garden equipment and seeds, I've got a folder full of plans and drawings for my new area across the street. There will be more chickens and hopefully some pigs, a 3000 sqft garden area and my own cute little farmstand. 
I'm excited. That's all I can say.

Just a small farm update

I know I said "I'm back!!" but, while it is true, it is also becoming apparent to me and others that I'm not spending much time online anymore.
I think it's been the lifestyle change. I'm no longer living in the fast paced Cleveland; I'm on a farm in the middle of Georgia! I have satellite internet with data limits (who knew that was a thing?!) and at first it was hard to only use 15 gigs a month, but now I'm lucky if I even use 10. I can still google, pin and do all that stuff freely but no videos, no Netflix and so help me if I accidentally miss a video ad playing and don't pause it (bye bye 1gb of data!) The data isn't what's keeping me away, though. It's outside. It's the heat, the sun, the garden, the chickens, everything.. I like it this way. 

We've been pretty busy on the farm. I've got chickens laying delicious 100% pastured organic eggs every day and an organic heirloom garden that is beginning to thrive. I'm hoping that I'll have a cute little farm-stand set up in 2-3 weeks, depending on my harvest dates.
My goal is to be here two times a week with updates on our new organic life. I'll be seein y'all soon!
