Hi,

I'm new here and I found this site a few days ago and after hours and hours of sleepless nights reading things here,  I decided to post something here about myself.

For a little more than a decade of my life, I have been saying how there has GOT to be a BETTER way.
I didn't like how the system seems to be most beneficial if you have money and if you don't , well good luck.
I found something that boggled my mind and I fell in love. The concept was The Earthship homes. My family thinks I'm nuts and I'm the youngest of a very large brood. My father's pet name for me is Starchild because he say's I'm a flower child born into the wrong generation.

So anyways, I long for a life on a homestead where I can raise free range babies and chickens and everything in between, I want a life that's self sufficient as possible, not as "theoretical" or comfortable. and when I found this site I felt like I found others "like me"

Full blooded woman 100%, Irish/Scottish+something or other.  Johnny was a nickname given to me by a client a long time ago and I adored it.
Single Mother to a few little girls who will give me gray hair long before my 30's I'm sure.
Which is 2 years away.

So glad I found you all!

-Johnny

Nothing wrong with that. It's nice to be in good company, isn't it?

yep. i love it here. I live on the edge of the suburbs, so I get the best of both worlds:
-my home is quiet and park like, also in a zoned agricultural area with horses nearby and woods and natural areas
-but I also am only 5 mins from a grocery store and a gas station, and 15-20 mins from pretty much any retail shopping you need/want.

It's a nice mix of beauty/practicality and modern convenience. I can point out a half dozen houses in my town that Gen. George Washington stayed in, so we are also rich in history

As far as gardening goes, this has always been a pretty good farming area - good rain and decent soil. Most of the time you just drop seeds on the ground and they'll grow!

Ha. Yes I love it out there. I adored how I could see green everywhere and all those old houses with so much character.
