Smiles from the Garden

We worked on the third phase of the garden today. Phase 1 - last year's seeds. Phase 2 - heirloom seeds off eBay. Phase 3 - seeds from a local seed store. We still have several phases to go until completion. We worked on fences also, prep work, as an old fence had to be taken down and The Boy did an awesome job. Then, of course, the area had to be brush-hogged. We seperated 'the girls' today, which increased milk yield from Sugar. She is our only wet doe right now, but we are looking for that special buck!

Sprouted Wheat Bread














Today we made sprouted wheat bread and it was yummy. We used fresh ground wheat also, but I think we will try with 100% wheat sprouts next time, just to see. Also planning to make hummus with sprouted chick peas.  Yum!

Many Hands Make Light Work

In Which, We Choose

Can you see all the dust blowing behind the tiller?  It is dusty here.  But it is our new home and we are content.  Joyous.  Excited.  Going back into the corporate world is not for this family.  We choose to create a family economy based on entrepreneurialism and hard work.  We choose to pour our lives into our children that we may hone these arrows.  We choose family life over the rat race.  We choose time over money.  We choose counter-culture.  To God be the glory!
