I'm not a great storyteller, writer, or creator so the idea of writing a blog for anyone other than myself and my closest friends or family members has been, well, non-existent. However, when my mom and I started dabbling in some out of the ordinary projects that others really seemed to be interested in, I decided that a blog would not only be a way to get others interested in doing some previously-thought-difficult-projects, but also a way to show people exactly what we are doing.
So, what are we doing? Well, it's a little bit of everything but this blog will center around gardening, canning, soap making, animals and a return to basics of food and using the ground under our own feet. We aren't claiming to be doing anything "organic" and we are by no means the only people doing these things. Most of the info we get online or from books and I will try to reference those when applicable. We have a desire to learn about and try things that our grandparents and great-grandparents did in order to live and we often think about and enjoy the self-sufficiency aspect of what we are involved in. On the other hand, we gladly use electricity, mixers, grocery stores, and of course, the internet.
