Homestead Barn Hop #96

“Cultivating the Homestead Community”

Welcome to the 96th edition of the popular Homestead Barn Hop!

Hope it was a great week for everyone’s homestead. Did you happen to see my brand new eBook that launched last week? It’s called The Essential Homestead, and it’s all about essential oils. The best part is that it’s FREE for subscribers! Click for details!

So do you have those posts ready to share? Let’s get started!

This hop is hosted by The Prairie Homestead and 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!

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. Please 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. 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!

    Thanks for hosting, Jill. today I linked up a post featuring home remedies for coughs, which I thought would be good to share with so many people sick this season:

    I also have a giveaway running on my site right now for Zukay Live Foods Kvass, if anyone is interested. –

    My site has the hick ups at the moment, so I can’t add a link back immediately, but will do so as soon as I have proper access again. Not sure what’s going on.
