Welcome to the Homestead Blog Hop!
Fall is in the air. Granted, it’s still 90 degrees here in Florida, but there is definitely a shift in the weather patterns. Summer is our rainy season. That means it is so humid all day long that spontaneous thunder storms usually sprout up around 3 pm and last until after dusk. It’s a big reason why summer gardening is so difficult in Florida. Most of your traditional vegetable plants cannot handle the heat of a Florida summer, and those that can cannot handle the amount of moisture. And if you get lucky enough to find a plant that can handle both, it’s likely to be eaten by insects. It’s a very frustrating time of year to be a gardener here, but I digress.
So I typically give up on gardening in the summer, especially if it’s a summer when I’m 9 months pregnant and having a baby. I’ve really been looking forward to the start of fall, when I could get back out into the garden. It may still be 90, but there has been a marked decrease in humidity, so it feels cooler outside. We also aren’t getting a lot of rain, so I can spend more time outside without worrying about getting rained on. I am so thankful for this relief, and I hope it sticks around for a while.
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!
