I don't mind that- the pull-down ladder is scary, lol.
Laying chickens (via a freshened flock), 9 kinds of dry “soup” beans harvested, property prolifically infused with propagated Russian sage (for bees and to beautify), container garden w/ tomatoes and herbs (on the deck away from deer and grasshoppers), a harvest of bowl gourds, and produce from one or two deep square-foot gardens (again, on the deck), which will be an experiment as this is the type of growing container for future indoor growing under lights. Successful compost pile (it’s tricky in this dry climate, and I’m learning).
A bee hive started (crossing fingers), and red worms/nightcrawlers (vermicomposting) for poultry and for fish, a picnic table under a shade tree for lunches & art projects out in the air, art to sell, and eggs (to support their poultry feed), regular use of homemade cleaners and a routine of line-drying clothes, self-reliance for dog food (store-bought is risky), 400 sq ft of indoor square-foot gardening set-up w/ grow lights (our downstairs living space with cement floor), in conjunction with a hot-tub converted for raising tilapia fish (aquaponics set-up).
You know, we're seriously considering going vegetarian if we don't start growing our own poultry/fish/goat meat. It's so expensive to buy organic and grassfed meats. I'd sure like to find out the cost benefits to raising our own! It should not be so hard for people to raise their own food -a little security in such an insecure world. I'll let you know what I find out...
