My Vision

Since I started this journey in my garden, I have met some really awesome people. Some love the garden, some love the animals, some want to homestead, some want to be healthy, and some just want to have fun.
I fit into all of those categories, and that is why I get along so well with each of them.
They all come to my home individually on different days, or different times of the year.
But, I would love for my home to be a gathering place for these people to meet each other, and share ideas.
For those who don’t have a backyard; they could come, and garden with me. For those who are intimidated by a canning pot, we could can together. We could even have a quilting bee, for goodness sake.
The ideas are limitless. Forget book clubs, who wants to read about it, when we could be doing it.

    What part of Az are you farming? I’m just outside of Phoenix in Wittmann. Az is a challenge. I have chickens, geese, turkeys, ducks, guineas, gardens and fruit trees. Still trying to get the aquaponics together. Right now I just have goldfish in a small setup to see how they fare. I don’t quilt, LOL, but did actually crochet a scarf when I was a kid. Just started canning again after a 20 year break.

    • I live in South Chandler. Yes Farmer Bob, it is a challenge-especially in the summer. But I grow straight through. I have been doing it for 30 years though. So I have learned a few tricks along the way.
      I love that you are doing all that you do. The aquaponics is actually quite easy once the your system is in balance. I have not had to do anything with the system at all for several months except feed the fish and replace the evaporated water. They are old enough to harvest now. I will harvest a few and leave a few. I have tossed a bunch of things into the tank that would create hidey holes for babies. I hope that cupid will put on his swim suit and do his work under the water.
      I am impressed that you crochet(ed) a scarf. I used to knit and crochet but found that I do not have the patience for it. Quilting is a passion for me that I hope to get better at.
      Keep up the good work with the canning, and good luck with your fish.

    Keep us updated on your Husband’s fruit trees. I work in the valley but go home on weekends to the White Mountains. My hubby just built me a greenhouse but I do not know much about using one. All my gardening “experience” comes from childhood in PA.
