Our agent had the house listed at realtor.com but had said it was going to be this weekend before she got it up on her website and several other “land and ranch sites” and she would have more info there. I noticed it was up on her site today and as I was reading through the listing, this sentence made me sad and proud, at the same time.
This property provides everything needed to grow your own food and enjoy the fruits of your labor year round…..making it virtually self-contained.
That was our goal and I’m happy to say, we did it!
This is another part I loved.
The land is absolutely beautiful….covered in oaks and other native trees and brush. Trails have been cut through the property to allow for easy access to all points either by walking or on an ATV. Hunting is awesome in this area with plenty of deer and turkey.
I need to save that webpage so I can go back and read it and remember all we did there, the fun we had, the trials, the anticipation of garden produce and fruit, the years we had freezers full of venison.
Here in MO, we’ll still be prepared, but not trying to grow our own food as we were there. Here, it means keeping water on hand and not having a well. There were a whole lot of people in Texas over the past couple of weeks that would have been real happy to have a well and even a small generator to turn it on and pump fresh, clean water.
For us, it was shocking to see how many people just totally were not prepared for three days of no power. One Second After should be required reading! The frigid temps made it a bit more challenging but we’ve always said it was easier to stay warm than to be comfortable when the outside temps are 110+ and there’s no power.
There were several showings of the house today. One couple was from the Austin area and had been without water for a few days and then had to boil it and said it still doesn’t taste right. Vince gave them water straight from our faucet and they were impressed.
According to our realtor, we’re supposed to get an offer this evening. My fingers are crossed! 🙂
