"That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed." Titus 2:4-5

Homestead Goals for 2012

Wow--more than halfway through this year already!  I have gotten a lot accomplished here on the homestead, but there is much more to do.  Here are my homestead goals for the rest of 2012:

  • pick berries; make raspberry jam, blueberry jam, and freeze some blueberries
  • can peaches and pears
  • can green beans
  • freeze peas
  • make and can applesauce
  • acquire items for milking goats, including a cream seperator
  • worm goats and chickens; figure out ingredients of herbal wormer and make plan to grow ingredients myself
  • plan medicinal herb garden
  • find good area for compost pile
  • harvest and dry garlic; use larger cloves to replant in October
  • sell unneeded items; use money to stock pantry with 200 lbs gluten free flour
  • add diatomaceous earth to chicken house
  • breed goats in the fall
  • install wood stove (hubby)
  • almost forgot...order homeschool curriculum and plan out 2012-2013 school year
I'm not sure if that's it, but that's all I can think of for now.  I will periodically update you all on my progress!
