We decided this year to start as much, if not all, of our plants from seed. We are using mostly heirloom varieties so we can save the seeds at the end of the year to use the next year...Now we've never started from seed before and we've never saved seeds before so this is all a new adventure for us and we are learning ALOT along the way!
- Homestead Roots
- My tremendously supportive husband & I have 3 wonderful children, 1 dog, 12 laying hens, 2 dairy goats, 3 bee hives, and a 2000 sq foot vegetable garden on a small 1/4 acre lot in the city. In the center of it all is our small 1,000 sq foot house purchased in 2008 as a foreclosure that we fully renovated to host our growing family, home school adventures, and small home business (CozyLeaf.com). We have a desire to learn a path to self sufficiency finding ways to be good stewards of the resources God has given us. We want to learn to live with less as we laydown roots to our little homestead.
