Well this weekend has been spent with the three of us being completely under the weather. I'm sure you can all imagine how much fun that's been! Especially for the baby :-(
But on the plus side, I did have a lot of time to browse Pinterest. That's always a bonus right?!
I wanted to share one of the gems I came across: How To Create A Homestead On Wooded Land
We've been looking for a real homestead recently. We're ready to get out of the city and on to some real land.
However, living in the area where we live and are looking, South Texas, there are a tons of trees on every piece of land we are looking at buying.
So this information was very exciting to find!
Some land would still need to be cleared to allow for a garden or large animals like cows. But leaving a large number of trees would not only be beautiful, but money saving as well!
This family isn't in Texas, so some of their ideas don't apply...
For example, they talk about sap from their maple trees, which is probably not something we will have in large quantities here in South Texas, but then we will probably have more pecan trees than they do!
The idea of a house in the country, surrounded by trees in the fog of the early morning is something that I long to experience.
I especially loved their image of all the turkeys and chickens running around the woods near the house.
I see a cool morning on the porch, overlooking the land. The soft rustle of the leaves in the wind... now if only fall would sweep in and make this a reality!

What type of land would you use to start a homestead? Pasture, wooded, or mix?
