  • This is the happiest moment of our new Homestead/hobby farm adventure!
.
Rabbits growing out ON GRASS!!! And look at that amazing cover crop y’all!!!!!
.
We have been raising rabbits for the last few years and there has always been this sense of something missing.  In my opinion, rabbits are the #1 animal that you should start off with on a homestead.  YES!  We love our chickens and know that they are the future for our property.  But not everyone can have chickens.  In fact for most suburban homestead dreamers it is ILLEGAL to have chickens! .
YUP! 👆🏻is INsANe!!!! 🤬  And we were one of them those people that listened to amazing online homesteading experts like @itsajacklife and @thejustinrhodesshow on how chickens and ducks can regenerate your land.  But unfortunately we handcuffed by the restrictions of our HOA and they wouldn’t allow us to own a few birds.
.
BUT!!! We were allowed to have “pet” rabbits!! And wow we realized the power of magic rabbit POO! 💩🥳
.
Fast forward to today.... we are finishing our first round of meat rabbits on our newly seeded grass. .
So thank you Jack and Justin for your inspiration and keeping the fire burning inside of us to chase down this HUGE DREAM!! 🔥 We will have a sad day coming up, but we are very grateful for the life these animals are giving us and hopefully we have given them the best last weeks possible!

  • Throwback Thursday to @bettertogetherwife and I’s Disney rabbit doe that we never got to see her full potential.  Do you see those eye lashes!  On a rabbit?!??
.

Lilac had the most beautiful genes of any rabbit we have seen in the 3 years of raising rabbits.  But when we moved out of Houston she past away while staying at our rabbit mentors Rabbitry.  This was just a fluke event while she was pregnant.  Nothing anyone could have done.  Unfortunately she never was able to birth her litter. 😢  We still have her sister, Blue, and we hope that someday through Blue we are able to get a bunny similar to Lilac.  Which is why we love breeding rabbits, the genetics are so interesting! 🧬 .

  • Rereading this awesome book to get some ideas on how to deal with our erosion issues.  Central Texas has gotten HAMMERED with rain and storms lately and our 7 acres is starting to look painful.
.
Gotta slow, spread, and HARVEST the rain water run off!!!
.
So back to the book, I absolutely love this book by Brad Lancaster.  Brad living out in Arizona knows Drylands for sure!  And his story telling and techniques are second to none.
.
plus..... SO MANY PICTURES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
.
Oh and PS, @bettertogetherwife is CRYING in the background while watching @rebekah.rhodes birthday video by @thejustinrhodesshow 🤣🤣

  • There is nothing like this moment.  This is a moment that @bettertogetherwife And I have waited for since 2015, when we purchased our 7 acres in central Texas.
.
Chickens on GRASS!!!
.
These are the 17 Easter Egger chickens that we hatched ourselves.  Well, the incubator did most of the work (to be honest). .
Now let’s just pray that they aren’t all roosters!!! 🤣🤣 🐥🐔🐓 .

  • Foraging food straight from your own property.  This is something I always knew was possible, but didn’t know what it would be like the first time.
.
For one I didn’t think that the kids would last so long, and two....well of course I didn’t think that Finley would love dewberries so much!
.
But once again it reminded me that this life, this slower country life homeschooling our kids is the life for us.  And if it’s something that you dream of, please know that if we can do it, YOU CAN TOO.

  • Oh wow this boy gives us so much joy and is sooooo much work!  But he has taught us our true selves.  When we are in a bad mood or having a bad moment with the kiddos he lets us know by roughhousing and chewing up EVERYTHING. .
But when we are calm, diligent, on schedule with a daily routine he THRIVES!!! And so does our family.  And so does our homestead. .
Thank you Chip for being our families emotional thermometer!
