This, ladies and gentlemen, is the beautiful future home of our tree orchard, berry orchard, and our garden plot.
It doesn’t look like much, but to us it is a dream come true. A land of possibilities just waiting for us to start working it. We’ve spent a lot of time walking this area, planning it out, drawing it up, and are excited to start our dream.
In this blank canvas we plan on having an apple tree orchard, berry orchard, a small corn field, and large variety of vegetables. We question ourselves daily if we are doing too much, we probably are for our first year, but in the end we want to see what will work and what won’t so a large variety gives us a lot to work with. As we expand further we would like to add various berry bushes, grapes, and refine our crop varieties to our favorites.
On the other side of the field we will build a barn. We’ve discussed cows, rabbits, goats, sheep, pigs, chickens, and ducks but we will be going over the discussion figuring out which animals will work best for us. We want to get animals with the intention of using them for meat, eggs, fiber, and milk but cost, health, and time each animal needs will be weighed into the final decision. We will keep you updated as we get further into our dream come true. It will be a lot of work, but so worth it in the end. It is only the beginning!
