Becoming Farmers

When we bought our house 6.5 years ago our plan was to live in our house until my husband graduated RN school or 5 years. He just graduated this last spring and we were hoping to sell this summer. That didn’t happen. Then we were trying really hard to get the house ready to sell in the Spring. Only 2 years late! And then we watched 5 houses go up for sale on out street this spring and just sit. No bites, no showings, nothing.

After lots of discussion and planning we’ve decided to just settle down for a few more years, and maybe even just stay and retire here. To make things more interesting we’re still finishing up updating the house and landscaping the yard. While discussing things, we decided to start a garden and a mini-micro-farm. In other words, chickens.
Thankfully pigs aren’t allowed in city limits because my boys really wanted baby pigs and I don’t. My boys are thrilled to learn how to be farmers, so we’ll see how things go! It’ll definitely be a learning experience for all of us!!
