Take Homesteader Action Every Day To Achieve Dreams / Backyard Homesteading / Seasons Late Autumn

Updated: Jun 5, 2022

If you take a little homesteader action every day, you are planting the seeds, sometimes literally, to achieve your dreams.

From a huge, well established 1000 acre homestead to the humble 1/6 of an acre yard of weeds, I wasn't going to let my dream and lifestyle die. Taking small, daily steps towards your goals will eventually achieve your dreams.

Just because you aren't on the perfect dream property, are possibly renting or your family don't want the homesteading lifestyle or you have health challenges, If you focus, take small steps often towards your goal, eventually you will see the rewards where you are.

Backyard Homesteading / Seasons Late Autumn / Taking A Little Action Every Day Can Achieve Dreams

Sowing seeds, Harvesting chilies & Fixing An Oil Lamp.

There is a little bit of space in the Winter Vegetable garden, so I am sowing Spring Onion seeds. I introduce my new Navel Orange tree, the eighth Citrus Tree at Moat Cottage and harvest more chilies, showing you my best Chilly plant and it didn't even make it to a garden bed, next Summer I will be growing all my Chilly plants like this.

We got some rain so I was out collecting snails for the Muscovy Ducks, which I fed to them the next morning.

One of my oil lamps was broken so I used JB Weld to cold weld the damaged metal parts together.

I made my last batch of Quick Pickle Chilies for the year and show you my favorite late Autumn cut flowers - Chrysanthemums and I welcome the first really cold day of the season with a glass of Mulled Wine and a good old cook book - Cooking from The Lake House Organic Farm.

Happy Homesteading Friends

Welcome to Moat Cottage Homesteading, I'm Elissa and here at Moat Cottage, we raise and grow and process some of our own free range meat, organic vegetables and fruit. We grow all of our herbs for both eating and medicinal purposes as well as hunt, fish and forage. We preserve our produce for the year ahead by canning, dehydrating, fermenting and freezing and we work on being prepared for emergency situations.

We don't like plastic, chemicals and artificial fragrances and are trying to live an older style life, balanced with this modern world lifestyle.
