So, my husband is dead set against chickens at this time. He says we won’t have the time to care for them properly and I won’t be able to collect the eggs in a timely enough manner. He has a point but I am still sorely disappointed.
I have stopped reading my homesteading books for a while. It just makes me want to start my homestead now and I can’t. It’s enough for now that I have a thriving garden. We’ll build from there. We agree that we want between two and five acres for our next house. I will have enough room to experiment on that much land. Maybe grow some grains.
So, for a while I will be diving into my backlog of to be read books. I have a couple that I really want to get to before I dive back into frugality and finance. I’ve always been more of a fiction reader than nonfiction and I’m feeling the need for some escapism. 🙂
