Homestead Blog Hop #97

Welcome to the Homestead Blog Hop! I wish I could say that we survived our first week of homeschooling, but that isn’t entirely the truth. I do have a new case of hard cider in my fridge. We’re still struggling with the whole idea of scheduling. Part of...

Florida Edibles to Plant in April

I know, it's the end of the month, and I'm just now posting about April edibles. It's been a very busy month for us. Good news is these plants are heat tolerant and can still be started now. We are already seeing highs in the high 80s, and will soon see temps in the...

No-Till Low-Maintenance Gardening

Are you tired of traditional gardening methods that leave you and your garden burnt out? Do you feel like growing your own food is like fighting a losing battle against your environment? What if I told you that you can increase your garden yield, reduce weeds,...

Florida Edibles to Plant in March

Florida is a weird state to grow edible plants. On the surface, we’re divided into USDA zones 9a and 9b, but then there’s this weird section down the middle where I live. We’re right on the dividing line of zones 9a and 9b. It’s too cold for...

Our Day Out with Thomas Tradition Plus Giveaway

Thomas the Train is coming to town as part of his annual Day Out with Thomas tour. How do I know? The commercials have started airing on PBS, and Farmboy asks to go every time he sees one. He literally spends the entire year anticipating Thomas’ visit,...

How to Doctor a Boxed Cake Mix

First, let me say that I love cooking from scratch. I love to know what is going into my body. From-scratch food is generally better; however, I have found very few cake recipes that can stack up to a doctored boxed cake mix in flavor and moistness. Plus, it’s...

BabyKicks Cloth Wipes

I’ve been using cloth diapers since shortly after Farmboy was born, but hadn’t given much thought to cloth wipes until several months later. It finally came down to dollars and sense; it didn’t make much sense to keep throwing my dollars in the...

Homemade Bathroom Cleaner

I will be the first to admit that I do not like cleaning my bathroom. The thought of coming that close to bodily fluids disgusts me. Yes, I have been peed and pooped on by my children, but this is different. It’s not just the fact that there could be pee on the...

My VBAC Story

With all of the negative stories about hospital births out there, I wanted to provide a positive story for the world to enjoy. After having a c-section with Farmboy, I was determined to have Cowgirl via VBAC. My story isn’t all bubbles and roses; childbirth is...

Artichoke Pesto Paninis

I always enjoy the recipes I get from The Six O’Clock Scramble, and this panini is no exception. The Scramble is a meal planning service that provides a fully customizable menu and grocery list every week. The service is geared towards those of us who have a...

Surgery and Our Miracle Piglet

Well, I guess you could say my weekend started off with a bang. If you’re just tuning in, I’ve been stressing over one of our piglets who has/had a hernia. I was able to tape him up Friday, but the tape had come loose by the time we fed Saturday morning,...

Farm Life and Field Medicine

In life, if you ever find yourself debating between becoming a farmer or a vet, become a vet.   Yesterday was certainly one for the record books. One of our piglets was born with an inguinal hernia, which means the ligament that separates the abdominal cavity...

The Homesteading Housewife’s Christmas Wish List

Every year, Hubby asks what I want for Christmas, and every year, I draw a blank. It’s not that I don’t have a wish list, but it’s so unusual that I don’t consider most of the items as Christmas gifts. I already have most of the gadgets that I...
