We are now one month away from moving day, and could not be any more excited. Today’s to do list looked a little something like this..
Plan location and size of garden
Look into Nigerian Dwarf Goats (THE CUTEST!)
Find somewhere to buy laying hens
Brain storm farm names
For valentines day Toby had a large picture of our property printed out and laminated.
It worked perfectly for planing out the location of our gardens, the chicken coop, goat pens, green houses and orchard. We used our massive garage as scale and got down to scribbling in our plans. We are planning on fencing in an area a little bigger than an acre to start.
Looking through all of the heirloom plants I found myself wanting to purchase all of the different varieties. I’ve shortened my list to around 70 packages of seeds. There will be no shortage of variety on the farm this year.
As for chickens and goats, we have some leads but no purchases yet.
