home sweet homestead

Somedays I want to quite this whole modern living enterprise. I want to move to the country, be a writer, and have a pet pig (not a pig for pork; I just don't have that in me)...

Some chickens...

Some helpful books on farming...

A giant garden of vegetables (with perhaps a few flowers)...

And this exact view.


  1. I often find myself daydreaming about that life as well. The back roads drive from Corvallis to Forest Grove is full of beautiful farm land and I find myself longing for it.

  2. Growing up, our chickens never looked that cool. But it was fun to feed them and collect the eggs. :)

  3. I think you should totally do it. You should just move to a farm and become totally sustainable, like Barbara Kingsolver and her family.
