I’m thinking. All the time. It’s not uncommon to find me staring off into space 90% of the time (the other 10% I’m cooking). I’m always problem solving, trying to figure out what we should be doing. What are our future plans for our lives and the homestead? I have a very hard time living in the present moment.
Since this past summer, we are a one car family now. When Justin aquired his new job, that made it absolutely impossible for me to work anywhere. That was another reason we decided to give the homestead a second chance.
Because of this, I’m constantly thinking about what we should be doing to make this place profitable. I’m currently building a seed and plant business on our Etsy shop, but I’m thinking of expanding beyond that. My initial thought was the farmers market, but now I’m thinking it might be interesting to have a CSA. Tonight I started taking a few notes on the subject and ordered a few books from the library to learn more in depth about a CSA’s structure. I’ve even started gauging interest in our local community (I’ve got none so far….ugh), but I might give it a try.
We have to keep trying, no matter how long it takes. I’m going to make sure I’m able to work and do something I love at the same time. I firmly believe in cultivating passion, especially when it’s helping people and the planet at the same time!
