But wait. You guys do run a business out of your home selling plants and plant products. At least that’s what it seems like to me all over social media. I don’t see how anyone could think you arw being picked on when this is clear.
The truth is that we don’t.
|This is not The Tattooed Homestead|
Our business is run out of a family home in Flagami.
This is not The Tattooed Homestead either. Not really, anyway.
This is my husband’s childhood home, where his family has allowed us to take over the yard and grow odds and ends here and there.
So then where the heck is it?
The Tattooed Homestead is real. At least, it is to me and my husband, and I hope it one day will be to our baby boy.
The Tattooed Homestead is:
… the idea of living sustainably and not hurting the planet while you’re doing it. It is the idea of leaving the earth a better place than when you got here. It is the idea that I want my child to know how food grows in the garden and not think that it comes from McDonalds. It is that I want my child to believe that the Truth will always win over a lie, that the little guy will always beat the big mean corporation, and that when the story ends everything will be as it should be.
… and if he falls victim to having an overdeveloped sense of fairness … then I will know I definitely did something right!
I know I’m not like everybody else.
I think that’s ok.
We will always grow using sustainable practices and ideas. We will never use pesticides or treatments for our plants or for our bees. We will always think with our hearts instead of our pocket books and we will always follow our hearts and let it guide us to what is right.
Some people may think I’m crazy.
I think that’s ok, too.
It’s not the first time I have been called different or crazy and I truly hope it won’t be the last.
As for my overdeveloped sense of fairness, I may need to learn to live with the fact that I may never change the world … but no one said I couldn’t try!
