An offgrid cabin in the woods

in i •  5 months ago

My name is Laurel. I am a middle-aged woman on my own (for now) who 4 years ago started an offgrid farm with Jerry in Pierson, Florida on 12 acres, mostly wetlands, that we rented from Evan. In those 4 years we have fought against lack of time, energy and money to try to make the farm look like the vision we had in our heads when we began. 3 years ago we ended the partnership and became friends and neighbors. I took the 2 acres south of Emporia Rd and put a rent-to-own cabin on it and he stayed on the 10 acres north of Emporia Rd. Recently Jerry met the love of his life online and married her and they are in the process of renovating a house in nearby Deland. He has left the whole 12 acres to me. In my mind I have created a new vision for my farm and am now working to carry it out. I still struggle against scarce resources but I am creative, resourceful and blessed. I receive disability payments for being bipolar and I buy and sell animals. I spend a lot of time on my phone/laptop interacting with others, ma

Hi there, lorreli, you're welcome. Keep it up and enjoy it.

Welcome to steemit! I'm also fairly new to the platform, currently an "urban homesteader" with aspirations to get a piece of land soon with my hubby, and was diagnosed bipolar almost 2 decades ago. I look forward to reading more stuff!
Way to have the motivation and courage to take your Homestead dreams to the next level. Especially despite all the changes you've been through. That's very inspiring to me!
Looking forward to learning a lot from you! There are some great communities on steemit. :DD
