How It all Began…

Our journey towards a self-sufficient life started about 10 years ago.  My husband and I have always had a passion for the outdoors and the simple life.  A life that celebrated the joys of digging into the dirt.  A life that abandoned the idea of living in a “McMansion” and replacing our perfectly manicured lawn with vegetable beds.  The very idea of living off the land seemed like a little bit of Heaven to us.  So, we determined that we would one day make this dream our reality.  We were so confident that we even named this future property: Heavenly Acres Homestead.

While we don’t yet have acres of land, we are inspired by those who have raised a bounty of food on less.  We’ve seen people grow enough food for their family on just a small apartment patio!  So, in taking a page from their book, we bravely set out to learn how to adapt our landscape to provide us food to eat; and in the process, maybe we will inspire you to grow a plant or two.
