Expect the Unexpected

I never intended to have a farm. I assure you that when I bought my pink, flowery muck boots a couple of years ago, I totally thought they’d look cute on a rainy day. I didn’t envision they’d be needed while I went out to feed the chickens or get fresh water for the goats.

But such is life. You never know what might lurk just around the corner.

The same thing applies to this blog. I’m not sure what all we might cover here. I know that Johnny and I have a fun and often funny life as we work together to be more self-sufficient.

How, you might ask? Here are a few ways:

Our chickens have layed more than 2 dozen eggs since the beginning of the month.

We’re learning about goats so that in a few months when our girl goat (Stephanie is her name) is ready, we can breed goats and have goat milk and cheese.

We’re planning a large garden so that our meals can truly be farm fresh.

I’m slightly obsessed with home remedies, especially apple cider vinegar and garlic. Thankfully Johnny is willing to try most of these, even if it means going to bed with freshly chopped garlic and olive oil on his feet. He smelled like a pizza, but his chest congestion was clearer the next day…

All in all, life on the Honeysuckle Homestead is pretty sweet. We hope you’ll check back to see what we’ve been up to!
