I have just recently gotten involved in urban homesteading. I have chickens, ducks, rabbits, and Nigerian milk goats. I love all of my animals, and they all make me really happy.
This year however I am starting my veggie garden. I don't know why, but I decided to start with animals and then once I had mastered them, I would then move on to gardening.
I am currently setting a goal to raise at least 1,500 lbs of produce from my garden. I am also going to have a mini orchard of about 12 trees. I am learning more and more everyday from all the people around me.
For me, I am in love with the notion of giving more than I take. I am feeding all of the bums around my neighborhood egg salad and they just love it. God has given me a passion to truly feed His people.
I know that with more work and learning that I will be able to really make my vision come to pass. I hope that I haven't taken off more than I can chew!!!
