So has anyone ever…

set the same goal year after year after year? Or the newest version of the same goal? I love the idea of being more independent. Having the chickens and now our bull affectionately known as Dinner around here. He is going to be eaten so no real name for him.

A co-worker of Pat’s blessed us with three little pigs this fall.(fortunately no big BAD wolf followed him!) Two got to the big fat pig stage and are now residing in the freezers. One is still in the barn as he stayed skinny for a while after getting some kind of cold. He is now fattening up nicely and will go in the freezer as soon as there is room. Lovely to know that even though Pat is in his seasonal lay off early this year there is still food “down cellar in a tea cup” as PA Ingalls used to say.

Anyway back to my original question: I have always wanted a garden that produced enough veggies to get through the winter.How do people do that? For the last few years our garden has been a poor excuse for a weed patch despite the work Dané and the other children have been putting into it. I’d really like to have an awesome garden this year. I am just afraid that once again time and money will be poured down the drain on the endeavor. Anyone have any fantastic tips? resources? thoughts?
