My name is Matt. I was born in the south, raised in Pennsylvania, and about ten years ago made my way to a little town just south of Austin, Texas (zone 8b.) And it feels like home. Like the bumper sticker says, “I wasn’t born in Texas, but I got here as soon as I could.”
I’m married to a Texas native and have three daughters, a dog, eight chickens, three goldfish (give or take), and too many cats on two acres.
This blog shares my adventures, my failed attempts, and my successes in learning to slow down, grow some of our own food, and live a little closer to the dirt.
