Homestead Update

Hey all! It has been such a long time! I wanted to drop in and give an update on what’s going on here on the homestead. It has been tricky finding a good rhythm that gave me some time to work on the blog while taking care of the little ones plus everything else we have going on here, but we have settled into a good routine that will hopefully give me more time to consistently blog. So let’s jump right in!

  • We had two litters of piglets born last spring. We have since sold or butchered the pigs. We currently have one pig remaining here on the homestead that’s for sale… Only $350, and he’s ready for the butcher.
  • We have around 30 or so chickens running about! Truly, I’ve lost count. We now have two ducks because something got two of our hens, so we have a hen and the drake left. I am hoping to add some more ducks to the flock this summer.
  • We have acquired a pretty amazing herd of goats! Let me just say, I love the goats. I wish we had gotten them so much sooner. I’ll do a post introducing the herd soon.
  • Right now, we are heading into another garden season. We have so many new ideas and dreams for the gardens this year, and I am so excited to see how it all turns out. We have been putting a good amount of work into them already. It’s been so nice to be working in the soil again after what seemed like a never ending winter. This year, we have put a bigger emphasis on the aesthetic aspect of the gardens which has been such a joy for me. I’ll be writing on the gardens in the next few weeks, so stay tuned for that!

I am so excited to be back in the blogging game and share what’s happening with you here on the homestead. I’ll be posting more recipes and DIY ideas, plus delving into family topics that are important to us. I hope we can all learn and share together on this homesteading journey! To stay up to date on what we are doing, don’t forget to subscribe. Also, follow me on Instagram @ abundantlifehomestead. You’ll see tons of pictures of our daily life on the homestead.
