Beginning to Semi-Homesteading in Michigan

(1/1)

Atlas:
I am excited about what my wife and I have accomplished this year. We moved from suburban metro Detroit to 5 acres (more land than we ever dreamed of) on the edge Ypsilanti/Ann Arbor.  We have 7 chickens that are finally laying eggs.  2 4x8 gardens that are producing kale, peppers, tomatoes, spaghetti squash, and pumpkins.  Unfortunately, the apple trees are taking a break this year. 

It is nice to feel like providing for ourselves is actually possible.

I am just curious to hear what other people have added this year.  Any exciting projects going well?

Thin out tha apples in June and you'll get apples every year!  Read or watch " The Holistic Or hard by Michael... Sorry, can't remember

LvsChant:
Congratulations, Atlas! It sounds really wonderful. I look forward to hearing about the progress you make as time goes along. We had a late frost this year where I am and didn't get any fruit at all. I'm hoping for better luck on our 5 apple trees next year.
