You may be at the beginning of your country journey or years into the voyage ... either way, there are some definite landmarks that will begin to define your new (and improved) life.

Candi, you made me laugh. Even though I don't live in the country or have a farm, my family roots are from farming. My exposure to farming was with my parents and uncle until I left the farm life to go to college. I can identitify with every one of your points. I was side tracked by the budding technology movement for almost 40 years before coming back to the soil by purchasing vacant city lots and turning them into gardens. I'm a self proclaimed Urban Farmer that only has wildlife for livestock. Building fences to keep wildlife out of a garden is much different than fences for keeping livestock in. Bull strong and pig tight fences just don't cut for wildlife that can dig, jump, fly, and climb. ***** Have a great day living the farm life.
