One Flourishing, Frugal and Fun Family!

One mother making ends meet and surviving today's recession by writing. One family learning to live off the land, cut back on expenses, and to live a simpler and a more self-sufficient lifestyle.

Rain, rain and more rain

Finally.  Rain arrived.  The thick, sticky air is much more tolerable today.  Although it is still raining, I plan to visit the garden today.  I have my eye on 3 zucchini that would make a nice dinner tonight.

Thank you all for helping me identify plants and pests.  Our goal is to be self-sufficient, and not have to run to the store for items we can grow or provide through dairy animals etc.  We don't believe in chemicals on or in our food either.

It's been an interesting start with this journey.  Many people think we have lost our marbles and that the grocery store is the best invention every.  Other people think we chose a way of life that is too much work. 

We now have about 6 cups of wild black raspberries.  We have located an entire are of berries and can't wait to pick more.  Making jam will be a fun and good experience for us.  Espeically with berries I didn't have to buy.
