our fumbling homestead Welcome to Our Fumbling Homestead! Thank you for visiting my blog! Follow me as we journey through new beginnings on a 10 acres homestead in the southern Colorado mountains. Together we will build chicken coops, raise farm animals, attempt to keep bees for honey and candles, learn how to make rich compost for our organic garden, add a large greenhouse and overall live a sustainable life.  The land is a blank canvas at this time and you can watch as we create a beautiful masterpiece! So visit often to see my favorite herbal creations and medicinal medicines and sign up  to receive the blog posts in your email so you don’t miss a thing!

Watch as I fumble through building my website blog and the many changes to it that you will see as I learn more about WordPress. It is a challenge I have never faced before and honestly quite overwhelming at times! Until we are set up in our new home I will concentrate on helpful articles such as making a small (or large) income while blogging and informational how to’s for a homestead life. So click away on the blogs, check out my DIY herbal remedies links and read to your hearts content and definitely feel free to comment or email me advice or any questions you may have!
