Urban Homesteading

Can this be me?

Path to Freedom

Urban Homesteader I LOVE this blog!!! Much less extreme and more doable for the everyday person who doesn't lean toward extremes like I do.

We've been hanging out on urban homesteading websites lately. We have lofty dreams of transforming every square foot of our yard into food producing awesomness! Granted, I don't want to be exactly like those people on the Path to Freedom link. I'm hesitant about owning a goat. The chickens idea is growing on me. Maybe some rabbits. I really should bake more bread from scratch (yummm!)

Defnitely expanding the garden and getting some fruit trees going though. Today, hubby suggested ripping out the entire front lawn and just going crazy with edible landscaping. Have I told you how in love with him I am?? Obviously we have to consider if we're actually going to stay in this house that long (I really want a second bathroom!). But it's fun to dream and even implement a little of the dream, right? Here's a few more sites I've visited about urban homesteading if you're interested. And if you're not, visit some of these sites anyway and it may motivate you to do more baking :) This one is great!
