“Cultivating the Homestead Community”
Oh summertime… Every year I tell myself I will NOT allow it to get this busy, but then it always does! I feel like I’m running around like a crazy person every day bouncing from barn chores to weeding to watering to blogging to cooking… Unfortunately, I’m struggling again with my garden this year… None of my cucumbers came up, and only a couple bean plants ended up germinating.
I’m trying to salvage what I can, but the weeds came up with such fury that they are making it near impossible to mulch around the tiny surviving seedlings. I guess I’ll be spending more time this year scheming about different garden methods for next year! (I am intrigued by the Back to Eden method, but not sure how long wood chips will stick around with 50+ mph winds…)
What happened on your homestead this week? Ready to share those links?
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 specifically 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!
Have fun, get to know some new homesteading friends, and be sure to join us every Monday!
