As I have professed I am quite enamored with the idea of growing my own produce. It’s been a bit of a daydream for me. On one hand I think that it is such a noble pursuit, to earnestly plow the land and grow natural products whereas on the other hand it seems out of reach from the urban world that I know (and my less than green thumb, I think I may have a pink and white gingham thumb).
My daydream of an urban homestead is fueled by the story of the Dervaes family and their inspiring way that they are making it work.
I think that their way of living is interesting. I think it’s a commitment, but I think the way that they did it, little by little, was really cool. For myself, I don’t think I would go completely off the grid, but I do think I would like to take back a little of my independence. To be able to have your own green house with veggies really appeals to me.
