Homestead Barn Hop #119

“Cultivating the Homestead Community”

Is summer really half over already? Yikes…

The Prairie Kids and I had a quiet week recovering from the craziness of the last month or so. We piddled around outside a bit, and I was also able to squeeze in some time to work on my upcoming eBook! More on that later… ;)

A-n-d… We had rain TWO days in a row! I know that is less-than-remarkable for many of you, but considering the drought we’ve been in, it was enough to cause a serious happy dance here at our homestead. Our pastures are drinking it up. Thank you Lord!

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.… [Continue Reading]

Brewing compost or manure tea is an excellent way to give your trees, veggies, or flowers an extra boost of nutrition. Last week, Homestead Journey shared a lovely tutorial complete with photos showing you how to make your own “poo tea” at home. I’ve had this on my list of things to try for a while now, and I think this post has given me the inspiration I need to finally give it a try. I’m thinking my raspberry plants would love it! Thanks for sharing your helpful post with us this week!

And 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!)
