Welcome to the Homestead Blog Hop!
This week marks the first week that the baby is consistently sleeping most of the night and the first week that I have attempted to stick to a schedule (not very successfully). We are also getting back into our school work, which has gone fairly well. Of course, the week started with the eclipse, which meant learning about why eclipses happen and building eclipse box viewers for the kids. All in all, I consider this a rather productive week. Let’s see if I can keep it up.
I was happy to notice that it wasn’t unbearably hot outside last night, which either means the temps are starting to drop (doubtful) or my hormones are finally coming down out of the stratosphere. It also means that I need to get my butt outside and start seeds for this fall. Yep, you heard that right, here in Florida we garden in the winter. It’s a phenomenon that I’m still adjusting to. Really, I should have started my seeds a month ago, but pregnancy had other ideas. I’ve committed to a large plant sale in October, so let’s hope I still have plenty of time to get seedlings established.
Now on to the hop…
Homestead Blog Hop will take place every Wednesday and is for all things homesteading: real food recipes, farm animals, crafts, DIY, how-to’s, gardening, anything from-scratch, natural home/health, self-sufficiency, self-reliance, natural remedies, essential oils, & more! Basically anything related to homesteading.
