Life on Green Being Farm

Here's a little blog about a family living on 2-acres of love. There be art here. There be joy here. There be the artisanship of The Mister here. From time to time you will find the buzz of the kiddos and maybe...hear the hum of our hearts.

It is Spring!

Today I have the itch (again) to homestead our little two acres. I know what can be done on such a small piece of land (and still have room for playing and such). All I need is a few chickens, on Jersey cow and a small horse for the girls. It wouldn't take much work to get it homestead ready...

Then there is the part of me that likes the ease that modern culture gives us. We can get used to sedentary living pretty easily. We don't have to grow our own food anymore to survive - we just drive our car to the store and pick it up from the aisles.


The Boy is growing by leaps and bounds. It is truly amazing how much they grow in the first year. The things they can do already - the life they set out to live starts...

I've started a group/org/company thing called MamasInNeed. I'll post more about it here over the next few weeks. In fact, I'll post more often. :)

Be well. Happy Spring!

I live on five acres in the Santa Ynez Valley near Santa Barbara. We think this is the greatest, and it is. We have great weather, the ocean nearby, farm animals, John Deere tractor, and best of all no bugs in the evening.

Good as it is though I would never ever attempt to live off of this land, even if the only alternative was to give it up and live in a small town in Minnesota where the mosquitos drive you bazonkers just as the evening is beginning to get pleasant.

Food for thought. Hope you get some land somehow. It is so fine to work the dirt, but only if you can quit when you are tired or skip a day or a week if you want to.

Thanks for sharing. Love your writing.
