Our Homesteading Goals For 2015
When I asked my husband to sit down and brainstorm with me about our homesteading goals for 2015, he declined, and said that I should just make a list of all the things I want him to get done this year, and be done with it.
According to him, I rule the roost in that area. Smart man. 🙂
I did finally get him to come up with some goals that HE wants to accomplish this year too, so here is our list!
January– Build a large fenced in area that will include room for the chickens, and the pigs that we will be getting in the spring (see goal #3).
February– Finish cutting down all of the trees that are shading our new garden area.
March– Get a couple of piglets and 20 meat chickens.
April– Build a clothesline, and get all our wood split and stacked for the winter of 2015-2016
May– Get our old truck road-worthy, and plant 5 fruit trees/bushes.
June– Clear more timber to create more garden space and a pasture.
July, August, September– Build a root cellar and begin stocking it with our garden harvest
October– Plant 5 more fruit trees/bushes in the orchard, and ginseng and goldenseal in the woods.
November & December– Butcher chickens and pigs.
What are your goals for 2015?
