This was a year of triplets for our dairy goats. One set was bottle raised, but the other set stayed with mama to be dam raised. Sadie, the mama of the dam raised kids, had a healthy appetite, but the herbal blend, MilkMaid, gave her that pep she needed to keep her supply where the demand was. Abby, the other mama, was a different story. See, I got her as a new first freshener. Neither she nor I had any clue what we were doing. To say there were bumps along the way would be a serious understatement.

They said I couldn't do it. My property is too small. There are too many land restrictions living in town. I have trouble sewing in a straight line and I set off the smoke detector when I boil water. Well you know what? I'm figuring it out. I currently have a flock of ducks, quail, and chickens, as well as four Nigerian Dwarf goats. Between our livestock and our gardens (over half our 1/4 acre is edibles), we produce most of our food. I may not be the poster child of a domestic goddess, but I am definitely a homesteader. Find out how I overcome challenges. I believe that everyone can be a homesteader, no matter where they live. Visit me at The 104 Homestead
