When you walk through the gates of my little urban homestead, there is a sense of serenity within its walls. The trees grow abundantly and circles and rectangles and wild tufts of herbs and flowers and vegetables grow everywhere. Climbing grapes and flourishing raspberries, rows of corn. The chicks chirp madly for more food and the hens strut about their yard. The farm dog stretches lazily on the couch. The cats are curled up in the sun. Homemade bread and fresh eggs for breakfast with hot coffee on the porch listening to crickets and birds sing.
Yes, we lead a very sweet life. This is the life of a homesteader. I have given you 27 ways and gone into more detail over 24 days of what loveliness goes into being a homesteader. I hope you know now that you can homestead anywhere, at any age. You can start with baking from scratch and move on to full out farming later. That you should most definitely get a cute apron.
Always buy the best you can afford. Cast iron is the best. Do your chores kind of slow. Keep your mind easy. Get a pen pal. Strive to live an old fashioned life. There are great joys and blessings that come with being a homesteader.
Now, I happen to know of a darling homestead coming up for sale. It is fully solar powered, with a wood stove, and a root cellar. It has a chicken coop and outbuildings. It has established gardens and a sense of home and place. It is beautifully kept up, wood floors, large kitchen. My homestead goes on the market today. I am going back to the country.
I will post the MLS as soon as I have it. If anyone knows of anyone who wants a sweet little urban homestead in Colorado, I’ve got one!
I’m going to have goats again, y’all.
