Hopefully the Mayans just got tired of writing their calendar and the world will not end in December of 2012, because I have a lot of things I still want to accomplish. I am person of lists. I love making lists and then I love it even more when I can cross something off. My life list currently includes 86 items, 34 of which have been accomplished...but everyday I think of a few more things I want to do. A few of the items from my list are included below in our urban farm goals for this coming year (bees!).
Our urban homesteading goals for 2012:
- Build a top bar hive and get some bees!
- Build a new roof for the chicken coop.
- Start an herb garden in the front yard.
- Make more wine.
- Make more cider.
- Expand our water collection system.
- Build a root cellar.
- Learn to make mead.
- Grow some artichokes.
- Use the pressure canner.
