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.

First day tilling the garden


Yesterday we started tilling the garden, and getting it ready to plant.  In fact, we went ahead and planted our onions, peas, and lettuce (2 kinds, one is heirloom).  I noticed that one rhubarb plant died, but our asparagus is coming up nicely. 

Tonight we will be planting more of the cooler weather vegetables, and I hope to finish the split barn door in the next week.

Our goat milking supplies have arrived – all but the milking pail.  We are excited to start having our own milk soon.
