My husband is from the Land Down Unda’ (Australia for those that don’t know!) and he was born and raised on a farm but ended up in Sydney at about 14 years old. But he’s got more time on a farm than me so let’s call him Country Bloke.
Country Bloke and I have decided that city life is just not for us. So after years of living in locales such as Hawaii, Japan, California, Colorado, and Australia, we traded in our city slicker attitude and moved out to the country. Over the past year of “Country Living”, I have officially decided to throw my entire being into creating this very natural lifestyle where we give back to the land as much as we take from it.
My intention with this is to share some of the ups and downs of trying to sustain sheep, a family, very demanding, full time jobs, and a “jardin potager” which is the fancy French way to say kitchen garden, as well as starting a vineyard in Texas on 34 acres we have there. Whew! It’s no wonder my social calendar is lacking!
