Some people may not know what off-the-grid or off-grid means, so here it is --- The term off-the-grid or off-grid refers to living in a self-sufficient manner without reliance on one or more public utilities.

Off-grid living is no longer a one room log cabin in the woods. It's energy independency. You don't have to rely on utility companies, you create your own power. Today, there are more than 180,000 off-grid homes in the US.

Little Off-Grid Garden - What's Happening…

40 degrees outside - 10:37 am - raining...

Last week in the pouring rain, head to toe in his yellow raingear, Tony was out measuring the garden.  While he was climbing under, around and through all the Vine Maple and Salmon Berry bushes, the kids and I stayed warm and dry and watched him through the windows as he staked the corners of our soon-to-be garden.

Yesterday the sun was out, the birds were chirping, and Tony was on the excavator clearing and leveling out the marked garden area.  There are quite a few fallen down snags that need to be removed along with some other trees and debris that need to be moved out.  Any nice ferns or little fir trees that he happens upon, he is setting those aside for me to replant in another location in the yard.

It doesn’t look like much yet, but the before and after pictures will be amazing!
