Make it your goal to live a quiet life, minding your own business and working with your hands, just as we instructed you before. Then people who are not Christians will respect the way you live, and you will not need to depend on others. First Thessalonians 4:11-12 (NLT)

Real Food

In an effort to become healthier, Mr. B and I are now on a Real Food diet. We are eliminating pre-processed foods that contain more than 5 ingredients, buying organic whenever possible, and exercising more. It's not been easy, especially since my bread machine died. So, my goal today is to make a loaf of Italian bread from scratch.

Mr. B has become interested in aquaculture and is currently researching the possibility of starting a small system in the garage. We would raise talapia or lake perch in the fish tank and grow fresh greens.

2012 To-Do List:

build small chicken pen
get chicks
increase the garden size
install soaker hoses in garden
start aquaculture program
repair greenhouse
fence in goat pasture
get two goats
grow enough fresh food to feed us through the next year
start a small home-based business
