I used to have sand and chlorine running through my veins. Now, it’s hay and mud. In 2013, my husband and I left the Southern California desert and moved to a cattle ranch in northwest Washington. We started slowly, but it didn’t take long to catch the homesteading bug big time! A year ago, we had seven chicks and an 8-by-10-foot garden with squash. Now, we have a large garden, 16 chickens, two ducks and two alpacas! In addition to gardening and taking care of the animals, I’ve also started canning, freezing, spinning yarn, felting, crocheting, and making cheese and soap. We have a lot of exciting plans for the future, so come visit us at our website or on Facebook.
