Good morning guys, I hope y’all are doing well this morning. I’m feeling blessed today. Blessed to have been given another day, another chance to strive for Christ, another morning/afternoon/evening/&night to be amazed by my Savior who loves me! Currently loving Bethel Music’s Live Album, You Make Me Brave, it’s amazing too 😉
As I pulled over to take this picture, the smell of poopy compost blissfully floated across the air. Making it’s way into my truck… only to find that I was not blissfully unaware of the stinky ranky sensation that it created in my nostrils. Have you ever wondered what it is that they’re actually spreading on those fields? What’s actually coating those crops? What are we really eating from the veggie stand in our grocery stores? What are we eating in our restaurants? What are we actually eating anyways??
Well… I have wondered.
I think this marks the beginning of a journey for me. A journey into my own backyard. A journey into my not so tended to vegetable garden. A journey into a meat-ful backyard. A journey to answer these questions that pang through my mind with every bite that I take. How can I actually eat the vegetables that I plant? How can I raise meat? Better off yet, how can I even grow them??
The discipline of homesteading has yet to sink in for me, I love having my own food right outside my kitchen window… but it’s so much easier to just go out to the grocery or pick veggies out of Myra’s Garden. It’s a little bit harder to actually walk outside my kitchen door and tend to my own.
Please join me on this journey as I learn how to #eatmyyard. Today’s agenda: Make a Plan.
