“Cultivating the Homestead Community”
I hope all of my US readers had a fantastic Thanksgiving Day celebration last week! Feeling thankful came really easy for me this year… God has blessed us generously, and I’m finding that sometimes the biggest doses of thankfulness can be found in the smallest things. 🙂
Other than that, my life has revolved around MILK this week.
1. Get up in the morning to milk.
2. Start a new batch of cheese to keep the milk from taking over my fridge.
3. Go back outside that evening to milk again.
This is the first year I’ve had an official cheese press and I’m having waaaaaay too much fun. So far I’ve done farmhouse cheddar, Gouda, and Romano– and I’m planning on doing a bunch of mozzarella and ricotta this coming week as well. Right now we have milk coming out of our ears. In another month and a half, we’ll have nothing when we dry up the cow–but such is the cycle of seasonal food.
Oh! I almost forgot–today is the LAST DAY to grab my ebooks, along with a bunch of others, for 67% off when you use the coupon code BLACKFRIDAY13. Click here for the full list. These prices are as low as you are every gonna see them, so take advantage of the pricing while you can!
So what happened on YOUR homestead this past week? I wanna hear!
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!
