It’s getting exciting around. Blackberries and muscadines are growing like crazy. Compost is being made, and sunflowers are popping up all around. The sunflowers are from black oil sunflower seed that I sprout for my chickens.

Dealing with Losses.

You want to start homesteading. Brace yourself you will have losses. I love watching chicks popping and hatching. I hate losing some. But lose some you will. So start small. Losing a chick is a lot easier and less expensive than losing a calf or goat. Focus on the victories. Don’t dwell on the losses. Have fun.
