The waiting game is on! We are several weeks in to the horrible limbo period waiting for our closing date on the house. All we can do is plan and prepare, and then plan some more. In the mean time there is plenty of research to do. What kind of chickens, DIY greenhouse, vertical gardening, raised planters, etc, etc, etc. We are also in full swing launching a home based business to replace The Wife’s current income. We both love to create and make things and handmade has a lot of opportunities online. In addition to handmade we will also try to make some money as a modern day homestead. Fresh eggs, vegetables, and honey to sell sound like a good idea. What will work best? What will work at all? Only time will tell.
