    Hi, I'm Sati :)

    I'm a homeschooling mom of 3 (but my oldest lives with his Dad). I am also the WAHM behind Rows and Roses- fine custom crochet. My husband and I have decided that we want to take our children out of the whole mainstream-marketing-plastic-fast food lifestyle and live a life closer to the Earth, closer to God. We put our house on the market today, and I'm looking into different types of chickens and goats. We grow a small garden every year anyway, but now we're wanting to expand to grow lots of things. I know how to can, so now I want to do more of it. We even hope to raise meat rabbits eventually, and maybe some pigs, too.

    I can use all the help I can get, so that's why I'm here! I'm a very social person, and I really need some like-minded friends to help steer us in the right direction.
