“Cultivating the Homestead Community”
My onions… my poor, poor onions.
I had the prettiest crop of yellow and purple onions this year. I spent all summer fussing over them (well, as much as you can fuss over an onion) and counting down the days until I could harvest them. I decided this Saturday would be the day, but when I went outside to start, I was less-than-happy to discover that something had eaten 90% of them! And not just a nibble here or there, they are GONE. There are a few bits of skin laying around, and a couple half-eaten tops, but the rest are no where to be seen. Between my chicken massacres and now my onion disappearance, I have to say this has not been the best year for food production… I suppose this is a good time to be thankful to have the grocery store for back-up…
Any idea what type of critter eats onions? I’ve never had this happen before…
Now, on to the Barn Hop!
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! (If you are reading this post via email, click through to see all of this week’s links!)
