Homestead Barn Hop #61

“Cultivating the Homestead Community”

Welcome to the 61st edition of the Homestead Barn Hop!

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

Amy from Homestead Revival and Kendra from New Life on a Homestead.

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!

I’ve tried many different aspects of homesteading, but I have to admit that I have yet to attempt composting with worms! I know they are a wonderful way to dispose of your kitchen waste (and even your junk mail!). Last week, Your Gardening Friend shared her wonderful post on 14 Reasons to have Compost Worms. I enjoyed learning more about her worms through this post, and I think you will too. Thanks for sharing Holly! :)

Now, on to the business of this week’s Hop!

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, Jill! When I see those worms, all I can think is, “Let’s go fishin'” LOL

    I’ve linked up three:
    1. Crock Pot Greek Beef Roast
    2. Food is NOT Your God
    3. Peanut Butter and Banana Pancakes

    Thanks for hosting again this week. I’m late in sharing and I almost didn’t because I was so late. But then I thought that my post might save the life of a lamb or kid. My share this week is about how to save a hypothermic and hypoglycemic lamb or kid, you know, the one you find in the morning, cold, floppy, and unresponsive. We’ve been shepherding for years and this technique has saved more babies than we’ve lost. Hope it helps to empower the new shepherds on your list.
