Welcome to the Homestead Blog Hop! This week, I’m working on getting all of my vegetable starts into my winter garden. Surprise of surprises, I found that the garlic I planted last winter actually formed bulbs. Of course, I didn’t discover this until this...

Welcome to the Homestead Blog Hop! I don’t know if anyone in the US wasn’t affected by the deep freeze this last week. Even here in Florida, the temperature at my house got down in the 20s. This is our main gardening season for vegetables, so I would normally be...

Welcome to the Homestead Blog Hop! Did I mention that I started a plant nursery this fall? That has been a learning experience. I will be the first to admit that I am not the most knowledgeable Florida gardener. I’ve had mixed results with more failures than...

Welcome to the Homestead Blog Hop! I hope everyone had a good Christmas. We did pretty well sticking to our plan of only a couple toys per kid. Both kids got a new board game each, my daughter got some things for pretend play, and my son got an educational game and a...

Welcome to the Homestead Blog Hop! Merry Christmas! It’s hard to believe it’s almost here. I started a new job, which has kept me very busy. As a result, time has passed much more quickly than usual (and it usually passes pretty quickly). I enjoy what I...

Welcome to the Homestead Blog Hop! How is it Wednesday already? After a crazy busy week last week, my body decided I needed to basically spend 3 days in bed, or at least as much as two kids and a farm would let me. I told myself that I would use my extra time off this...

Welcome to the Homestead Blog Hop! We all have seasons when life is a little crazier than usual. Granted, my life has been pretty crazy for years, but the holiday season just takes it to a whole other level. There is the traveling and gathering with friends. There is...

Welcome to the Homestead Blog Hop! Happy (early) Thanksgiving everyone. I hope that your week is filled with family, friends and fellowship. This time of year, it can be easy to get wrapped up in the consumerism of the holiday. We spend this week giving thanks for...

Welcome to the Homestead Blog Hop! Is anyone else really not ready for Thanksgiving next week? I’m going out of town, so I have about 263 things on my to-do list that need to be done before I leave. The things I need to do around the house would be bad enough,...

Welcome to the Homestead Blog Hop! How is everyone adjusting to the time change? Yes, it would be nice to have more daylight in the evenings, but without daylight savings I would have lost my evening daylight a month ago, so I try to remember that. However, I am glad...

Welcome to the Homestead Blog Hop! I hope your November is off to a great start. I’m a little disappointed that Halloween is already over. I love to costume, as you can tell from my latest Instagram post, and I spread that love by making costumes for my kids....

Welcome to the Homestead Blog Hop! After a week of beautiful weather, I have developed the inevitable sinus infection. I have a real love/hate relationship with this time of year. I love that it’s so nice out, and I can spend most of the day outdoors. I hate...
