Welcome! I’m Katy, a permaculture and homesteading goofball. I live in Southeast Michigan with my husband, daughter, two dogs, one fish, 8 ducks, 2 geese, a dozen chickens, and about 20,000 bees (give or take). I blogged the crazy process of our (foreclosed) home purchase and renovation, and that content has now been migrated here from my old blog (those are the posts prior to 2017). New posts will mostly focus on our homesteading adventures, including gardening, beekeeping, raising ducks, and other experiments (like the “quackuaponics” system shown above!).
