It’s so human nature for folks to be curious. Ever use someone’s bathroom and curious as to what’s in their medicine cabinet?
Well, what we try to over here at Little Homestead in the City is let you take a peek into our lives through musing and photos (lots of photos!) By writing and showing first hand accounts we feel that we are “keeping it real” and not just filling up cyberspace talking about green or sustainable living.
You can determine a lot from people by what’s not seen. We can talk green but do we actually live green -each and every day? Sure there are setbacks but when it comes down to it “what’s in your closet, drawers, cabinet, refrigerator” says a lot about you as a person, where you but your values and money.
We are definitely far from perfect, heck, it’s a daily, hourly struggle. Besides, if we were perfect it would take all the fun out of being a human. We are just striving to do what we can, with what we have, right now.
When we urban homesteaders say we make meals from scratch, try to eat local ( in season) and stay away from too much packaged and process foods we are doing just that. Here’s a look at our fridge, cabinets and pantry.
The pantry. Bulk supplies from the food cooperative.
Kitchen cabinets full of homegrown, home preservation
The fridge (energy star rated and energy efficient!). A few dairy products , eggs and produce (no store bought – from the urban homestead) and wine (leftover from a gathering) Why is the fridge so empty? Well, mostly it’s used for business. A cool place to store our produce, after we pick and pack it, until we deliver it to our clients.
Freezer full of homegrown produce. Yes I know look at those Ziplocks. Gasp – plastic. Sheesh, didn’t I say we aren’t perfect. 😉
We constantly strive for our “insides” to reflect our outsides. Sure, the journey if full of setbacks, failures but it’s the journey that counts not the destination.
Open up your life, care to say ahhhhhh?
