In the spring of 2009, we realized that the economic situation was not going to get any better due to the bailouts and misguided actions of the Federal Reserve and US Government. So we decided to learn about becoming more self-sufficient. First we got some chickens for egg production. Then we started exploring the world of Square Foot Gardening. We also installed some rain barrels, and are just trying to use our limited space wisely. In 2010, we added a lot more gardens, along with a few other things. We enjoy having impromptu gatherings – especially on Fridays and Saturdays. We’ll try to post lots of pictures and videos.
