We have more lawn than any person needs. I hate lawns. Hey, let’s put non-native, water-intensive plants that we use energy to keep artificially short. Screw that. Maybe… maybe… after we get goats… but only maybe.

Who are we? Here at the Accidental Homesteader, we have two humans, three cats, and eight chickens. I’m Kate. There is the husband. We have Cleopatra, an old bitch of a cat. She’s about 11 or so. She just lost her buddy Agamemnon two weeks ago, and is still angry with us. He was 16 or so. But in December, knowing how old Agamemnon was, we adopted a new kitten, Aristaeus. He was 3 months in December, so still a kitten. He loved Agamemnon, and played with him every day. So last week, we got him his own kitten, Demeter. She’s all of 3 months old.
