Homesteading has long fascinated me—living off the land in a bucolic setting in upstate New York , Wisconsin or Maine, raising heritage free-range chickens and Shetland sheep. Maybe I’d even have a few dairy goats and whip up some really tasty cheese with the garlic and chives I would grow.
Life, though, has landed me in a Midwestern suburb with a postage stamp sized lot. Yes, we are building a little garden, but it is limited. Plus, I feel a strong pull to eco-friendly living and am interested in prairie restoration. I see my yard more as “suburban savannah” and have been slowly filling it with native plants to sustain butterflies, birds and the other critters with which we share this planet.
