There is always a ton of work maintaining the home and permaculture garden.
Fortunately, I have help with my ground crew and handy men.
Projects such as landscaping, composting, no-dig gardening, decorating… I can manage alone.
My regular gardening and lawn maintenance is light on manpower.
I enjoy mowing the front lawn and making my own compost from grass clippings, leaves, pine straw, food scraps i.e. vegetable/fruit peelings, egg shells, tea bags, newspaper and organic cardboard products, which is used to feed my vegetable garden.
Wood chips are used in the front yard garden that I had hauled in a couple of years ago.
All gardens and home have been prepared for winter.
In addition, I wrapped outdoor faucets to prevent freezing.
As I walked the property today, I was attracted by the rustling of trees set ablaze in vivid red, gold and orange but; when I looked up the wind stopped.
That’s when I realized the trees were saying, “The trees, the wind, the sun and the rain provides food, shelter and water for you, and everything else your permaculture garden needs besides plants and seeds.”
I have added new pictures on Google My Business to show you the development of Tonza’s Rural Money Homestead Garden Home.
Now that the gardens have been put to bed, I’m inspired to spend the winter managing my homestead as a business… and enjoying the fruits of my labor!
I am finally in the house completing some must-do chores before the holidays, writing, updating websites and social media, responding to inquiries… and looking forward to hearing from you!
