About Me

My photo
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.

This year our seedlings are getting their start in the laundry room on top of the warm washer and dryer! I started my seedlings alot later this year than I have in the past, but they are doing great in here! Bryan hooked our grow light from the ceiling and we set it up on a timer. The seedlings love the warmth from the dryer and it has helped them get going fast!

This year we are attempting tomato grafting! Im so excited to see the potential...or just learn from my failure, who knows :) They are MaxiFort Tomatoes and quite vigorous and disease resistant!
Oh it looks so cute and innocent right now, but I guess it will literally take over your garden if the top isnt chopped off and grated to a normal tomato plant.
