HI, I LOVE your website! Sometimes I get choked up when I am reading all the wonderful information.
I know that might sound silly but it's because I live in a mobile home park and I have ALWAYS wanted to have a farm, ranch, homestead, place of my own. When I first started reading some of the articles, I thought, She gets it!!, She understands!! I have that soul-deep, wrenching, it makes me cry I want it so bad and am afraid I won't ever get it, kind of thing when it comes to this topic.
I love to make my own stuff. I have always said if I could have it my way I would grow veggies, fruits, herbs. Have animals, land, everything so I could be self-sufficient. It seems more than just a want or desire, it is more like a need.
I have always loved cooking and baking and I like to make from scratch things like barbecue sauce, tarter sauce and spaghetti sauce. I have tried bread, and although I enjoy the process, it never comes out right so I need to work on that and have
made a starter to work with. I want to learn how to make cheese, and other dairy products at home.
I have quite a few herbs on my porch, a few strawberry plants in pots although they don't make very many. I am trying to get some things together to make a raised bed so I can plant some fall veggies soon. I am trying to learn as much as I can here, now to help for if we ever do get a place elsewhere.
Sorry this is so long, my fingers just kept going! :) Thanks for reading, God bless.
