Hi and thanks for stopping by!
Let’s see… where do I start, firstly I am a stay-at-home mom to a very rambunctious 4 year old little boy
I’m also a wife, a runner (when I get the chance), lover of dogs and all things gardening.
So, several years ago I started growing my own flowers, to see if I could do it. I got this idea of trying to be a Flower Farmer. To grow beautiful flowers all day and then sell them or give them away, which is what I did my first year.
My husband has always wanted to grow and raise his own food…..to live as sustainably as possible.
So, not long after having Henry in 2016 we decided to get away from the city and buy a little land.
Now the three of us live on 5 acres along with our 2 dogs, 5 cats, 15 chickens, and very recently 2 very goofy, and high maintenance goats (Blueberry & Hazel). We are technically still in the city, but it doesn’t feel like it….. we call it “the farm”.
On our mini-farm we….well (I mean my husband) are renovating the main house and whilst doing that I have agreed to move into a 26’ camper…yes..camper. For who knows how long….
Our long-term goal with these 5 acres is to make a living farming. My husband loves to grow the food. While my favorite is the flowers…growing the perennials and annuals from seed and learning about my favorites, the grasses and ferns.
We also have a decent patch of blueberries and raspberries, which will only keep growing. And just purchased out first and hopefully not last Bee Hive.
Lastly…..but certainly not least there are the chickens and goats. We have had our 2 chickens (Sandy & May) for 6 years now but have just increased our flock by 13.
And for the goats…wow, what a learning curve these girls are turning out to be! Thank goodness they are super cute and funny and remind me of tiny deer. We plan to breed our girls in a year or so for milk and cheese if everything goes to plan.
So, while tending to goats and chickens, I will be helping my husband with the food gardening side of things, which I will share and I will be growing a lot of flowers which I will share as well.
I am here to offer tips on what I have learned and keep learning everyday!
So, join me…browse around and stay a while!
