A Milestone Reached

I can’t believe it.  After two and a half years, minus a one year sabbatical, I’m finally on my 100th post.  A huge thanks to all of you who are following along on my journey.  It’s been a bit rough as I was not sure in the beginning where exactly I was headed, but the future is much clearer to me now.  Thanks for putting up with me as I share my vegetable gardening, chickens and newcomer ducks with all of you.  I am hoping to be doing a lot of canning and preserving in the near future.  My goal is to become as self reliant as possible.  I know on one half acre that I will never be completely self reliant, but I hope to do the most I can with what I have. I saw this saying on a facebook page I follow and I think it says it better then I could,  “It is not the amount of land you own, but what you do on that land that makes you a homesteader.”

I have never been big on prizes and give-a-ways, but I think this special occasion deserves one.  I am going to give one of my Tote Bags to someone who comments on this post.  I will put all the names in a hat and Holly will draw a name.  Next Saturday, March 16th, I will post the winner, both on this page and on my facebook page.  Thanks for playing.

Looks like the weather this weekend, at least in my neck of the woods, is going to be fabulous.  Hope everyone gets a chance to go out and get their hands dirty!

The winner will receive this tote!

    Congratulations Charlotte! Honestly, between your job, gardening and all that goes with it, chickens and now ducks (!), helping with Holly’s business, etc., I don’t know where you take the time to write your wonderful and very useful blog! It is always interesting to read what is going on on your acreage, let alone getting useful tips on gardening.
