Bloom where you are planted.Last Saturday, Mike and I delivered goats to three different families in and around St. Louis -- and yes, I really do mean in St. Louis. As I was navigating and giving Mike directions for finding the second delivery location, we commented on how we seemed to be in the middle of the city, yet we only had a couple miles left before we arrived at our destination. As we made turn after turn, we finally realized that these two goats would be living in St. Louis.
After we found the house, we started to walk up to the front door and noticed corn growing in the front yard, rather than a lawn. After meeting Danielle and Justin, they invited us into their backyard and their urban homestead. Mike and I were incredibly impressed with everything they are doing on their tiny city lot. I've been saying for years that you don't need 32 acres like us to grow a good portion of your food, and this couple is proving it. They've dug up all their lawn and replaced it with a very impressive garden. They also have chickens, and now, goats. Did you notice the bee hives on their roof in the top photo? The goats will be living in a small fenced-in area at the back of their yard and will eventually provide them with milk.
