Our Homestead Journey On 1/10 Of An Acre

Soo much going on in our little teeny weeny itsy bitsy back yard.  When I say on 1/10th of an acre I mean our whole lot is 1/10 of an acre, front yard-house-back yard is 1/10th of an acre.. Our home is 1220 square feet, and our front yard is bigger then our back yard soo that means our back yard is TINY (Which also means not a whole lot to work with)!!!!!

 But God is sooo good and has let us do quite a bit with it.  We have our 9 pretty ladies (Laying hens), and 18 pullets on one side of the house, our potato buckets on the other side and a small grass play area for our 3 little girlie's on the back of our house, ohh and our garden is back there too..

"Show me your ways, O LORD, teach me your paths; guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long. Remember, O LORD, your great mercy and love, for they are from of old. Remember not the sins of my youth and my rebellious ways; according to your love remember me, for you are good, O LORD."
Psalm 25:4-7


  1. Congrats on the new additions to the homestead! They are darling!

  3. Love the pictures of your itty-bitty homestead! Thanks for dropping by Dear Lissy and taking a peek at my raised bed gardens. Raised beds and container gardening are a great choice for those of us with smaller properties. I'm hoping to branch out into "edible landscaping" in the next couple of years, too.
    God bless you and your three beautiful girls as you work your HOMEstead.

  4. Great blog! Love your pics and your inspiration for smaller homesteads. We are also on a small area as well, but I am encouraged to do the best with what the Lord has provided! Thanks for sharing!

  5. Thanks ladies:) It's definately nothing to brag about, but hoping it would encourage some one:)

  6. Good for you! I love seeing what homesteaders can do on small plots with just a little creativity!

  7. love this post. found your blog via the barnhop. thank you for the encouragement. we live in a townhouse and have no backyard...we do have a cement slab so i will see what my inventive mind can come up with.

  8. Thanks for stopping by my blog Shelby:) It can be a challenge to work with a small space, but yet can be very rewarding!

  9. I love it! These small homesteads that are popping up are so inspiring! You are making such good use of the land has lent you! Keep up the good work!

  10. Wow, you sure make a lot from just a little! It must be fun to raise chickens. I bet the eggs are awesome. And I also bet the girls are just delighted over the moon when the little babies arrive!

  11. We are dreaming of homesteading also but being in the suburbs we can't have chickens but I have a potted pepper plants and a potted tomato plant (actually more than 1 in each pot) and am growing some herbs in an aero garden. Now that hubby has lost his job we have more time to figure it out!
    I look forward to watching your progress and learning from you.
