We are located in Columbia Missouri on about 1/3 of an acre in the heart of the city. For many years we have dabbled in growing our own food and medicine, raising chickens, commuting on bikes and we even recycle fryer grease to run our truck. However, very few of these projects have sustained because we've moved 5 times in the past 12 years. Seems like we would move as soon our gardens were mature and getting established. The benefit has been that I have put in many gardens, and we've learned a lot about chickens, herbs and fryer grease.
We've lived in our current house for 2 years now and we've decided we're staying put. We enjoy the simple life of a cheap mortgage and living close to everything we need. We will be doing some major renovation on our home and starting from scratch with our gardens. This will be a space to chronicle some of those projects.
