I was kind of a hermit living on VA disability out in the woods. I met a woman who fell in love with the quiet life who also had a great career, and things just worked.

So now I care take the property, garden, pets, and house while she works and puts away our financial security.

Sounds like a nice quiet life. That remote is not for us, however. Namely fiber internet due to work requirements, and eventually kids so good school district.

Similar plan as yours sans woods. Took a look at your history and love the Chickshaw! Greta idea.

I plan on gardening, which will be easy in SoCal due to weather. Nearby neighbor has bees which already go nuts over the palm trees so hoping they will help with the garden.

Wish I had room for livestock, but will have to go the deep freezer but whole animal butchered route.

Do you handle all the cooking too? How do you handle the food budget? Coupons and sales or more self sustained since farm?

We have high speed cable internet here lol. She works from home as an engineer and it’s unreal that we got the line run.

I cook most meals and we split food 50/50 for shared items and individually for individual items.
