|my current spring garden|
This is my dream.
But I learned a while back that I don't have to wait to live my dreams. My just right property may never come. My life outside of town may just never happen. I decided in our last home to just jump in. To dig up the front yard and plant gardens. To add chickens to the back.
And now we are in a home that we do not own. I have not let that stop me. I may not be building on our forever property, but I'm not going to let that keep me from planting. I have blueberry, raspberry and blackberry bushes coming in. Those are things that are supposed to sustain you forever. For us, it may not be that long. I didn't want to wait!

We have our chickens. We have our garden. We are waiting for fall to add a flock of meat birds, and maybe some dairy goats. Please let there be dairy goats!
If you are stuck in an apartment with no yard, and wishing for a little extra space...don't wait!
If you are living in the suburbs and dreaming of small town living...don't wait!
If you are in the middle of the city and thinking that you need just a bit more space...don't wait!

If you are living in small town America where the neighbors will surely talk...don't wait!
By beginning your homesteading journey now you will be living out your dream. Put the books down and jump in with both feet! The only regret you will have is not starting sooner! Trust me- I know this from experience.
Everything doesn't have to be just right. It doesn't have to be your forever place. Begin experiencing the life you want right now!
