I Want A Farm...NOW

It's so hard to be patient. I want my farm and I want it now. I want big beautiful gardens full of stuff to eat and sell. I want eggs, lots of yummy brown eggs to eat for breakfast. I want fresh, raw honey from my own back yard. I want two or three or ten milking goats. I want to make cheese, ice cream and soap. I want to be able to look out and see it all in reality the way I see it in my imagination.

Oh, and let's not forget bacon. I want bacon....and ham....and pork chops....and sausage. Yes, I've decided I want to raise some pigs. Then there's rabbits. Jade wants rabbits. And I say "why not?". If we have to build a barn for the goats, there's not reason we can't just build in room for rabbits too. And why not a beef cow too? We could really be nearly self sufficient.

Basically, I want it all and I want it now. But I can't have it now. I have something called a husband. I have to let him have a say in some of this too. Even though I am the one taking care of the animals, he has to build the housing and the fencing. He's also the one making the money at this point.

So for today I will content myself with the chickens and keep looking for beekeeping equipment. But one day in the future you will hear me say "I am a farmer!"

The waiting is always the hardest part...but you've already put much of the right stuff into've got your ten acres, you've got your chickens, you've got the initiative and enthusiasm. Don't ever give up on your dream - it's gonna happen!

Sounds like a good plan. We would like to be more self sufficient too.
