Welcome to The Hippie Chicks! I’ve been a homemaker for a very long time and I’ve made a lot of mistakes along the way but I’ve also learned a few things. My husband and I recently purchased a new home in Connecticut. It is a 1800 reproduction Colonial on 6 acres of land with 2 barns. So now we think we are farmers! We planted a huge garden and got chickens (I don’t know the first thing about chickens but hey- nothing ventured, nothing gained right?). Then I started to make my own laundry detergent, and fabric softener, and soap!! Then I started to can and pickle our homegrown veggies, and make my own jams. So now it just makes sense that I start this blog to share with you some of these things. I hope you have as much fun with this as I do and if I can be of any help to you well then yippee!!!
