Welcome to my blog about our journey of homesteading in the city. We are fortunate enough to have a 1/2 acre backyard with 2 acres of flood plain to boot! We’ve had a flock of backyard chickens since fall of 2008 and an ever expanding organic veggie garden. I teach a variety of bread baking and cooking classes in my home and at a local foundation and so it is in my blood to teach or share what I can about the the things that I love to do which includes raising chickens and growing organic veggies! Thus, this blog. I’d love to hear from you if you have questions for me or want to share about your homestead adventures.
