If you came here looking for The Busy B Homemaker, don’t worry! You’re in the right place!
Over the past several months, my family and I have gone through many changes, the biggest of which was moving back to Texas to be closer to family, and buying our dream home on 14 acres a little bit south of Dallas/Fort Worth.
With those changes also came the possibility of the little homestead life that we had been talking about for the past few years! Chickens? Let’s do it! A big, hearty garden? Done! Fruit tree orchard? Of course! Cows, horses, goats, small-scale farming, and more…. One by one we will be adding new elements to our little piece of heaven.
We’re starting from scratch with raw land and basically zero experience, but we’re learning by trial and error how to become self-sustainable and live the country life. Getting my family and yours prepared for “What If?” scenarios was my goal when The Busy B Homemaker was born, and while I still believe there is a time and place for Bug Out Bags, food & water storage, and learning survival skills, our family’s focus has shifted to a more self-sustainable, live off the land, and love the Earth mindset.
At Bluebonnet Acres, you will still find all of the articles you loved at The Busy B Homemaker, but now you will get to enjoy more posts about first-generation homesteaders, learn from our mistakes (I’m sure we’ll make plenty!), and share in our adventures as well.
You’ll read about things like raising chickens & other livestock, starting a new garden plot, food preservation for that big veggie harvest, teaching your kids about all things country, and of course, you’ll get to see tons of pictures of bluebonnets and our Lone Star State!
Have a great week!
