- 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.

Our first salad from the garden!!!
I had made some homemade croutons a couple days earlier (from homemade bread) and I also tossed it with some homemade salad dressing! The salad dressing is super easy and is just olive oil, apple cider vinegar, garlic, and honey mustard (recipe thanks to Kael!!). And of course some yummy sprouts!
