Homestead Barn Hop #54

“Cultivating the Homestead Community”

Welcome to the 54th edition of the Homestead Barn Hop!

What a week! We have had an usually warm week here in Wyoming… The temps have been in the 70s with little wind, which is highly unusual for March! Generally, we get some of our biggest snow storms this month, so being able to get outside and enjoy the green grass is a fun treat. :)

It’s still too early for me to work in my garden, but I am getting glimpses of spring with the warm air and tiny sprouts of green grass popping up after a dry, brown winter. Can’t wait!


I look forward to seeing all of the spring progress on everyone’s homesteads this week!

This hop is hosted by The Prairie Homestead, along with three other fantastic homesteading gals:

Amy from Homestead Revival, Kendra from New Life on a Homestead, and Kelly from The Morris Tribe.

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.

    Thanks for hosting!

    I shared a post about the incredible health benefits of apple cider vinegar and a recipe for black bean dip that is delicious with veggies or chips.

    Thanks for hosting, Jill.

    Today I linked up a post about simple record keeping for the garden, sharing how I keep track of seed starting (with a free downloadable chart) and sample diagrams from my garden. I don’t know if you can see it in the thumbnail, but the cover of my garden journal is a photo from when the boys were little and they were helping me pick tomatoes. Love that little diaper bottom!

    As a followup to my post on the dangers of water fluoridation, I’ve posted a new recipe for homemade toothpaste–fluoride free, of course.

    Thanks for hosting!

    Hi, I think your site might be having browser compatibility
    issues. When I look at your blog in Firefox, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it
    has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a
    quick heads up! Other then that, very good blog!

Eating grass-fed products has so many benefits.  It supports local farmers and it’s good for the animals and the environment, but I think the best reason of all is that it is good for us.
