The holidays brought us Drax the Mouse Destroyer! We are getting him acclimated to the indoor portion of his life, but we hope he will help control some of our outdoor rodent issues. We also got Roxie the Betta and Gary the Snail, who reside in a 3-gallon aquaponics aquarium that we may use to grow some microgreens or herbs.
Indoor projects will include general home repairs; restructuring the pantry to be more user-friendly and acceptable to mason jars; rendering lard; seed and plant shopping; and general planning for the homestead for 2015. Do we add rabbits? Ducks? Quail? Giraffes? Okay, maybe not giraffes, but stay tuned and look forward to upcoming posts on our shed build, impromptu chicken coop, sprouting system for chicken fodder and other goings on around the farm.
As we say goodbye to 2014 and anxiously await 2015, we would like to thank all of you who have read and shared our posts. Happy New Year to each and every one of you and please continue to share what we do. Our goal is to inspire even the tiniest bit of hope that many homestead/farm projects can be done for low cost, but make a dramatic impact in one's life. I can safely say that 2014 has been one of our busiest and HAPPIEST years. I don't think this is a coincidence. Is it the food? Is it the work? Most likely, it is a bit of everything, so we shall continue onward down this path.
Happy New Year!
