I am married to a 1hothippiedude! We have 5 children and 2 dogs. We are new to homesteading, but have raised a garden all but 1 year of our married life. (way preggers sick with 1st child!) Last year we raised our 1st totally organic garden and this year will do the same. We plan to add chickens, a cow and a goat to our piece o'hippieheaven this spring. We enjoy preserving our always bountiful harvests. Maybe we'll try wine this year!
