Jeffcoat Acre







I have gotten a glimpse of what is it going to take to feed 3 boys- A LOT! These boys of ours wreak havoc on our food budget now and they aren't even teenagers!! CJ and I were excited at the thought of having an acre of land to plant a garden, but now we are planning to do a little homesteading as well. In the spring we are going to get some chickens and goats. Originally it was going to be for fun (because we don't have enough to keep us busy ;) ), but now with the Jeffcoat boys' hearty appetites well underway, it will be more for survival. Here are a few pics of Jonah and me getting our garden ready for planting. Since then, we have decided to expand it a little for spring.

I am jealous! I have always, always, always wanted a garden with fresh veggies! With a dog in the bag yard who would eat everything, makes it tough for us...Maybe the next house! xoxo
