Homestead

Country living in the city

I grew up on three acres in northwestern New Jersey, across the street from 100 acres of woods and swamps. We had two horses, two goats, two sheep, two ducks, a dozen chickens, some parakeets, a hamster, five fish, seven cats and a dog. Now I live in town, in Oregon, where my life still revolves around fur, feather and leaf.

Someday, I'd like to move to the country and do some real homesteading. But for now, the game is country living in the city.
