DIRECTORY:

We love watching the homestead channels! We have started a directory of channels so if you have one, let us know and we'll review your homestead channel and possibly add it our directory.  Click here for more information.


OUR DREAM:

A coffee house on a city homestead and creating open source plans, and sharing what we learn.


OUR JOURNEY:

Learning how to find our way through homesteading and starting a coffee house, and keeping it running. Basically, we started a coffee house, but figured out no one wanted to give us wholesale pricing because we were too new, and too small.

We closed the coffee house and decided in order to get wholesale pricing, we would have to grow our own produce and start a buying club. Then reality hit. We now blog about reality.


OUR INCOME:

Right now, we flip contents of homes, by way of estate sales.  Visit our Estate Freedom site for more information.


MAJOR PROJECTS:

1. City Homestead
Setting up a homestead in the city.  We are blogging about our experiences, beginning with the estate sale that brought us back to Tennessee, and then what brought us to leaving Tennessee in the first place.

2. Domestic Kitchen
Setting up a domestic kitchen in Clinton, TN. We are using the Tennessee Cottage Food law as a guideline.

3. Market Garden
Setting up a market garden.

4. Coffee House
Setting up a coffee house in Clinton, TN. After this phase is completed, we will have a commercial kitchen instead of a domestic kitchen.

Pond Bacteria for Secret Haven

Secret Haven Pond is a Mess!

Koi Pond is a Mess!

How do we care for a pond that has no inlet, no outlet, and is full of algae? That’s what we need to figure out.

    LOT CLEAN UP

    It’s taking a long time to clean up the Secret Haven lot. Much longer than we thought it would take, but we have to clear everything by hand. There are so many plants we want to save!

    Poison Ivy, Pond, Estate Sale Update

    Poison Ivy, Pond and Estate Sale Update

    As many times as I have had poison ivy, you would think I would know enough to stay away from it.

    POISON IVY

    Longing for a cure. A genuine cure where I can touch poison ivy and not be affected. I heard jewel weed is as close as you can get to getting rid of the effects of poison ivy, but I don’t have any.

    POND

    The pond is in very poor shape. No inlet and no outlet. The ducks have been swimming in the pond because there is no way to contain them.

    I’m very worried about the health of the fish. A solution is needed to clean the pond.

    ESTATE SALE

    We’re running behind on setting up the estate sale. The majority of our time has been spent clearing the overgrowth and cleaning up the yard. Unfortunately, code enforcement requirements have to take priority. When we took this estate sale, we didn’t realize how much manual labor was required to clean up the yard.
