Homesteading section coming soon!

So, as many of you know already I love the thought of living off the grid and own my own homestead. I will be there soon. (June 2014) So I am going to start adding my plans and thoughts and maybe some pictures of the new place. I have knowledge of canning, cheesemaking, butchering, small livestock, fowl of all kinds, crocheting, sewing, quilting, gardening, and herbal medicines. I am trying to learn more about aquaculture and fish in general, raising cows and goats for milk and meat (I had a goat before, but she was not milked or eaten, she was a companion for our deer), food storage using a root cellar and green housing in the winter. I've got a lot of ideas about what kinds of things I want to start with on the homestead and I'm going to start with chickens and a small garden. Then I want to build a root cellar and expand my garden and my fowl by adding ducks and maybe pheasant.

But, first I have to finish my last semester of school. I'm almost there! Then Frank and I are getting married in June. He has left to go to his new job in MN. (BRRRRRR) I'm not used to the cold weather, but I've got Norwegian blood I'll adapt I'm sure. This started out as a sewing blog and I will still do that but I want it to include my varied interests. I hope that you will follow along with me as I learn and grown. We're looking for property now, and we have one in mind. I will post more about it when it is ours.(update: we bought it!!)
Until then, I may not blog as much, but I'll be back.

In Christ, Stephanie.
