Yesterday we signed the papers and became the proud owners of the urban homestead, a small cottage on the edge of the city and the edge of the prairie. We have big plans for this little stamp of urban land: a big garden, a few laying hens, composting, putting up food, simple living, cooking, and baby-raising. It’s our first home. And we can’t wait to get started.
This blog will be a place to share the adventures of urban homesteading, for better or for worse. You’re welcome to read along as we recount the journey!
