My homestead is small at the moment, but its growing! In the beginning i had a 4x8 raised bed garden and then i bought Bobwhite Quail, for eggs as chickens weren't an option just a dream at the time. I expanded the garden and the quail coop to accommodate more birds and things were looking good! I needed a bigger garden spot, so me and my dad built the garden i have today! The whole area measures 25x12 with a 4x8 in the middle. The beds make a shape of 2 L's put together, if that makes any sense! I wanted to try raising rabbits, for pet and show purposes, so i got two dutch rabbits. they just has their second litter at the beginning of the month! Later when i got settled with a bigger "homestead" the idea of chickens really started to look possible. Again me and my dad built a coop for 2 hens (the limit where i live). I plan to expand the run this summer, it measures 8x8, but i want them to have as much room as possible due to the fact that i can't free range, fox problem! I have one golden laced wyandotte named ebony, and one Delaware named ivory, they will lay eggs this summer cant wait!!! Back to the garden, this year i'm growing: Strawberries, potatoes, 2 types of bush beans, spinach, radish, rosemary,lemon verbena, mint, lemon thyme, basil, bell pepper, jalapeno, silver queen corn, peaches-n- cream corn,squash,okra, and sunflowers! I plan to sell my vegetables this year along with the rabbits that are born and fresh eggs! At first it was for personal and fun purposes but now it benefits me and my family. I have come a long way and look forward to what comes next!
Thanks for whomever read to the end, i wish you the best of luck in all you do!
