In our compact 1/3 acre mini homestead we try to do a lot of different self- reliance and family quality activities. Open space is quickly eliminated by our raised garden beds, trampoline, playhouse, swing set, sheds, woodpile, BBQ/ Smoker/ Firepit area and compost pile. To keep a natural balance we plant many perennials and semi-annual flowers throughout the yard. We let flowers go into seed to replant in future years. Our philosophy is if a flower grows and it is not in a traffic lane …. we simply let it grow to beautify our domain.
We feel it is important and calming to balance life’s structure with a bit of wild and freedom.
