Well every January around this time I seem to get the gardening/homesteading bug. For the most part I feel it year round, but especially after the holidays have died down, I really get the urge to start planning and making preparations for my garden. I would consider my “homestead” to be very small. I have a small garden and that’s about it. But isn’t that what homesteading is all about, making due with what you have? Thats why I try not to get discouraged about only have a small garden or homestead. I know someday I will be able to have a bigger garden and probably even livestock. I just have to be patient and work hard and it will all work out.
So, in an effort to get outside on a dreary day, I ventured out to take pictures of what my homestead looks like today.
When it came time to prepare my garden for winter, I was too pregnant to really do anything to it. My back hurt and digging in the garden was one of the last things on my to do list. So this spring before Little T gets here I plan on asking my husband to till it under. This should take all of 30 minutes. After that, planting shouldn’t be too hard :)
What does your garden look like today? Have you started making plans for it yet?
