We will never be able to grow all of our own produce or anything like that, but I did get to skip buying veggies at the store this week, in favor of the abundance of lettuce, spinach and peas we do have available right now. I'm grateful for this bit of food we are able to grow, and I love the feeling of accomplishment and self-sufficiency it gives me!
I am ever so thankful for this little plot of earth that we get to call ours. It is so fun to get to change things and make our yard and home reflect our family and our values. I have so many plans and things that I want to do, and frankly, progress seems painfully slow sometimes. But little by little we are accomplishing things, and that feels so good!
We finally got three more blueberry plants in the ground, so my blueberry patch is finished. It definitely adds a lot to our little "urban homestead"! I picked our first few berries this morning, and the kids were thrilled with this little bonus at breakfast!
