Homestead Blog Hop #138

Homestead Blog Hop #138

Welcome to the Homestead Blog Hop!

The days are finally starting to stay warm here in Chicago, but it’s STILL cooler than normal, and I’m starting to feel a bit discouraged. It’s hard to have these hard and fast rules for a homestead, but then have them laid to waste by good ol’ mother nature. I am getting excited about all of the corn that has grown quite a bit, and the tomatoes that I will be eating and canning in no time. We have a large lot clean up next Saturday, and I’m looking forward to getting the ENTIRE community garden planted and cleaned and prettied up (as much as a garden can be prettied up) before June is over. What are you doing on your homesteads? 

Now on to the hop…

Homestead Blog Hop will take place every Wednesday and is for all things homesteading: real food recipes, farm animals, crafts, DIY, how-to’s, gardening, anything from-scratch, natural home/health, self-sufficiency, self-reliance, natural remedies, essential oils, & more! Basically anything related to homesteading.

Meet and Follow Your Hosts!
