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 is when its starting to get FUN!!

The tomatoes in back are doing good and the Lettuce and Arugula are in front and they are doing FANTASTIC! We have already had quite a few salads from the lettuce and arugula and now the spinach is starting to take off too so that is SO fun! There is basil and chives interplanted between some of the tomatoe plants, but you cant really see them from this photo.

Tomatoes and Celery! I was a little concerned about the celery for a while because it just wasnt growing, but it is starting to take off...so are the Tomatoes! I need to get the tomatoe cages on them, but I dont have 30 tomatoe cages so I need to come up with a few more...SOON!

Onions are looking good and the carrots are starting to make themselves known! Henry is loving the carrots!


Bed of Beans and Potatoes

Radishes, Radishes and More Radishes!! There is some Lettuce and Arugula interplanted between the radishes, but you really cant tell the difference from this photo, it just looks like a lot of green!
