About me

I’m Vicki and this is my blog.  You might know me as Tori, Victoria, Mac or Babe; depending on when and where you met me.

Hitch, Pitch, & Flip started as my intention to write about the things I love to do. House tours in old homes, estate sales, yard sales, rummage sales, tearing apart my house , decluttering, upcycling, and being a mom.

I’m a mini farmer, a bee chaser, a duck mom, a human mom, a lover of hair metal, and a wife.  Oh, and I might have a slight penchant for all the bad words.

I’m raising two hilarious and smart-ass ADHD and ODD (oppositional defiance disorder) kids who are the chaos in my life. I’m also a friend of Lois W.   This blog is a way to record my journey in the dirt and to live a sustainable life for when the zombies come (I might have to throw them the kids, first).  It’s how, through gardening and homesteading,  I’ve learned to re-center myself and gain control over my own chaos.  And to prove that we can all get nutritious foods in our body without paying the non-sustainable price for “certified organic”.

I live with My Mechanic husband, two kids, dogs, cats, and rabbits in the Inland Northwest of Washington state.  We reside in a 1927 craftsman bungalow that we are slowly fixing up.

I also have a creepy love for bugs and other things that crawl, slither, and swim.

I love spiders
She lived right over our door for a couple weeks.

We lived in California for decades but in December 2014 we packed up everything and moved 800 miles north.  Yes, in not-quite winter.

And so here we are – growing food and soon-to-be tiny livestock on our mini homestead.


Thank you for joining us!
