Ichiryo Gusoku - Goals


The Purpose of added this to the existing blog is to document the process of a country samurai in an urban environment working to achieve self sufficiency.
Goals:  Ultimate Goals are these:
-         80% self sufficiency in vegetables
-         50% self sufficiency in citrus fruits
-         50% self sufficiency in grains
-         80% self sufficiency in compost/soil additives.
-         100% self sufficiency in honey
-         50% sufficiency in eggs
-         80% sufficiency in energy (Solar, wind)
-         50% sufficiency in stored water for irrigation
-         Debt freedom
-         Develop a second career sufficient to fund 100% of our living expenses.


  1. I can relate to this (of course!) But there's no date, so I'm curious as to how well you're doing on your goals.

    1. Leigh, that is a great point and one I had not thought of. This was originally done in 2013 or 2014 and I am a long way off from some of these. Compost is probably 100%, honey is 1005 (thanks to the folks that bring the bees to The Ranch), debt freedom is 100%, and second career...well, I wonder if a job change counts? You are right though; I will have to quantify more thoroughly.


Comments are welcome (and necessary, for good conversation). If you could take the time to be kind and not practice profanity, it would be appreciated. Thanks for posting!
