Why Country Living?

I often get comments on our recent move of Why? As we begin to transform the baron land into an area that produces it is undeniable that views like this are a major part of the appeal.
 So until we get the Animals, Garden, Ponds and what ever we can think of going, scenes likes these from the back porch will have to do.

The Blank Slate

This is the inaugural post to our new lives. We have a blank canvas to paint our lives in a country setting. What we have to work with: 20 acres, a basic home and imagination.The hope of this blog is to document the progress of the new homestead and how we are able to cope.

There will be animals to raise, crops to be grown, land to be converted to natural native habitat and in the end a sanctuary with an established micro-climate. Along the way we will detail how we have accomplished what we have done, our successes and our failures. Our hope is to help others who want to live a life such as this and help them avoid the pitfalls through our efforts. Below is our Blank Slate.
