Love This

I came across The Urban Homestead website yesterday and LOVE, I say LOVE their little homestead.  To think they can produce 6000 POUNDS of produce a year in such a small area.  Yes, they live in California which has a much longer growing season than Northern New York does, but still, that is amazing. 

Here is a video about their lifestyle:  http://www.kcet.org/shows/socal_connected/content/environment/growing-your-own.html

I like this quote from one of their blog posts “Learning by doing is still the best way to learn how to farm and homestead. Such times that we have learned the most about farming/homesteading have been when we were thrown into a situation and forced to sink or swim.”

I am very inspired now.  Time to make a list of what seeds I have and want to get.

Until next time – Happy Gardening!  Bowl
