Great to have you! I knew you looked familliar, and was trying to figure out why. I must have seen you on the homeschooling group. I have an OCD about joining groups, and I can't keep up with them all. I'm not active on them all (because nobody could be, lol, with as many as I have).
I have 6 children, 5 boys and 1 girl. I homeschooled all my kids right from the beginning, 15 years ago or so (depends on how you look at it, according to your formality, or law or what). We've always gardened and put up food, and it's a big part of my life. That's why I started this group. I had chickens, ducks and geese, along with dairy goats, growing up. We don't have any of that here, but hubby has talked about it. We do have part in a local farmer's place, where he does a gardening on shares program. We get milk from him. He is organic, but not certified-which is fine by us. Sometimes we get eggs from him, too.
