Homestead Barn Hop #90

“Cultivating the Homestead Community”

Welcome to the 90th edition of the Homestead Barn Hop!

I can hardly believe we’ve done this 90 times– there has been a lot of incredible information shared here since the beginning. Keep it coming folks! :)

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.

Did you share any homesteading related posts on your blog this week? If so, we’d love to have you link up below! Even if you don’t have a blog, we always welcome your comments!

“All plastics contain chemicals, and some are not well-studied to prove their safety. Plastic wrap is no exception.  Beeswax cotton wraps provide a safe and effective alternative.” 

Confession: Even though I’m pretty “green” when it comes to most areas of my life, I still use plastic wrap– and more frequently than I care to admit. I LOVE this idea for homemade, reusable wrap from My Healthy Green Family- this is definitely going on my list of things to try!

Since you were this week’s featured post, feel free to display one of the following badges with pride on your page- we’ve provided 2 different color choices to pick from. (Past featured post participants- feel free to grab one of the banners as well!)

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

***Please note the rule changes below!!***

Some Simple Guidelines:

1. Please remember that the Homestead Barn Hop is meant to be a place to share homesteading related encouragement and inspiring ideas specfically related to homesteading. In an effort to keep our weekly round-up clutter free, links which are not specifically homestead related, and any promotions such as giveaways, contests, carnivals, etc, will be deleted in order to maintain the integrity of the Barn Hop.

2. Please remember this is a family friendly link up. Any pictures or posts linked to the hop which aren’t appropriate for our children to view or read will also be deleted immediately. We’re pretty conservative, so we ask that you use good judgment and err on the side of caution.

3. Make sure that you link to your Barn Hop post, not your blog’s main page, so your guests won’t have any trouble finding your great tips!

4. We would also appreciate it if you would 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 to link back to us with.

5. Want a chance to be a “Featured Homestead” next week?

Be sure you’ve included a link to the Barn Hop button in your post! Thank you for sharing the message about the Homestead Barn Hop!

6. Occasionally there is a problem posting due to glitches in the internet or the Linky Tools. If you have difficulties posting and it does not show up immediately, please wait a little while and try re-posting (this helps avoid double posting). We’re sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, be we do not have absolute control over the internet. Thank you for your patience and understanding!

  1. Hi Jill! This week I’m sharing a little about vintage pyrex dishes. I’ve found them a very practical and pretty addition to my kitchen.

  2. Thanks for hosting – I’m new and glad to be a part! Today I shared “Making Kefir Video Class” which is so easy to do at home and “Beef Plus – Chili for a Crowd” which has ground beef plus kidney and liver – my children love it!

  4. Thanks for hosting the barn hop! I am going to try and put your button on my post, this is my first time so I hope I do it correctly!

    I posted about using bananas … we recently received (free!) seven cases of bananas cut in half, and scrambled to get them used, quickly!
