“Cultivating the Homestead Community”
Welcome to the 43rd edition of the Homestead Barn Hop- the first Hop of 2012!
I hope you and your family had a refreshing holiday season. I know we did, and now I’m ready to get back to life-as-usual!
2011 was a wonderful year for my homestead. We added our first cattle, brought home a new batch of chicks, remodeled and repainted our barn and shop, had a productive garden, and built nearly a mile of fence!
I can’t wait to see what 2012 holds for us. As I’ve said before, one of my most favorite parts of homesteading is all the new skills to learn and grow through. I have quite a few goals on my list of things to new for 2012. How about you? I’d love to hear about your goals for the upcoming year in the comments!
Now let’s get down to the business of this week’s Hop! I so enjoy visiting your homesteads each and every Monday. Thank you to everyone who has made it a success so far!
This hop is hosted by The Prairie Homestead, along with three other fantastic homesteading gals:
We encourage you to stop by every Monday and share your latest homesteading posts with us. From cooking to animals to gardening, we want to hear what’s been happening at your homestead this week!
Some Simple Guidelines:
1. Remember to provide a link back to the Homestead Barn Hop in the post that you share. Feel free to grab the banner at the top of this post, if you would like, and use it to link back to us!
2. Please link to a specific post, not your blog’s main page.
3. If you don’t have a blog, share your latest homestead updates in a comment on this post!
4. We, the hosts of the Barn Hop, reserve the right to remove any link that we deem inappropriate or offensive. We will err on the side of caution.
Have fun, get to know some new homesteading friends, and be sure to join us every Monday!
