Wild Moon Cottage is a small working homestead in the pristine Ozark Mountains. We have dairy goats, poultry, organic herb and vegetable gardens, a start of a tiny fruit orchard, several black walnut trees, wild berries and fields of wildcrafting goodness. We raise our own milk, our own eggs, much of our own medicine and food. I do laundry by hand, make my own vinegar, candles, soap, bread, cheese ........ For a living I am an artist and herbalist. My goal for myself and our homestead is to be as self sufficient and self sustaining as possible.

the plan for today includes ...

*yard saling early ( but my Sagittarius says not to spend money today *o* )
*carefully sweeping away and relocating several spiders from the front porch for paint
*duct taping the dirt down so it won't blow up on the wet paint.
*moving some satellite wires (we get satellite in the winter)
*moving everything off the porch
*taking down the small fence we use to enclose the porch
*and painting the porch and front of house !

when all the painting is done I will be getting some english ivy starts to plant on each side of the house to help stop the erosion on the hill parts. Unless I find a better way that I can afford. I do so love Ivy tho.

I'm also going to be trying to find out about some privacy fence that may be free to take down. There's a lot of it but it's in great shape and not to far to drive a few days in a row.

I love English ivy, and I think it will look gorgeous with your paint color choices. How did the garage sales go?!!! I'm excited to hear!
