About this Blog

I’m Lindsay.  Mother. Aspiring Farmer. Book Lover. Crafty Woman.

I created this blog in 2010, to record our family’s trials and triumphs as we transitioned from the city to the country. We moved from a very tiny 2-bdrm bungalow on a very tiny city lot, to a large old farmhouse on a little bit of land, and are doing what we can to sustain ourselves. It isn’t always easy!

I spin, knit, crochet, and sew.  I keep chickens, ducks, goats, and one little Shetland ewe.  I make most of my family’s food from scratch.  My four small children are life learners (we are “unschooling”).  I breastfeed and use cloth diapers.  Our home is TV-free.  That’s me in a nutshell.

I aspire to grow the majority of our food on our  little farm and bring in a small income from my efforts.  I welcome you to join us and learn with us as we journey through this life.

  2. So wonderful to find your blog! My daughters and I will be moving to the Leamington area this summer and are hoping to connect with some like minded families. Very exciting!

  3. Hello, I love your blog! I was just wondering where you live? – hope that’s not personal – I live in Windsor ON and started a project, (check it out here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zlCrfUrUg3c ), and I’m looking for gardens/farms that wouldnt mind accepting food scraps from the community to use as compost? I am holding a workshop sometime in July… let me know if you are interested and whether you live nearby? Please like the facebook page as well:http://www.facebook.com/greening.kenilworthgardens
