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.
 
I'm still in control here. LOOK at this tiny ad!
Do you prefer white or black rocket ovens?
