Hello! I moved to the Springs in 2010 with my hubby and cat. I live in an apt., so I'm slowly learning Homesteading techniques. I look forward to the day when we can have a little piece of land. I have a passion for herbs and working the earth!
I'm a newbie to homesteading, but have some experience with herbs and creating natural beauty products. So far I've grown some produce, made candles, yogurt, bread and other food items, reduced our electricity usage by washing clothes by hand, using candles and olive oil lamps for light. And of course, we recycle and re-use as much as we can. I want to learn more about growing food and composting as they are the hardest in a tiny apt. and the areas I know the least in. This year, I want to try making soap (maybe hand-milled for now) and learn how to knit. I also want to start collecting rainwater, although that might be tough in CO. My favorite things to do are working out in the "garden", making apple butter, baking bread, and I know this sounds weird, but I actually like to wash laundry by hand. Great workout!
