Did you find some help for your homestead last week? I know I did!! Wow! You all brought some great posts. I can’t wait to try some of the new things I learned. I have to say that I went a little pin-happy. I hope you don’t mind!
Thank you to everyone who linked up! And thank you to everyone who visited the other links! I don’t know who visited which posts, but I do know that everyone had visitors, and I know how many. Here are the most visited posts from last week.
Last week, you all wanted to ditch your cans of cream soup and joined The Iowa Housewife for a great substitute recipe! Good for you! You won’t regret it!
You also got your April To-Do List in order over at The Redeemed Gardener. I wish I was as organized as Clint!
Last but not least, many of you were as confused as I am about the difference between hay and straw and using them in the garden. Thank you to Susan from Learning and Yearning for clearing that up for us!
Ok, just one more…I love my homemade deodorant, but I can never get it to stay solid when things heat up here. I am so grateful to My Healthy Green Family for the great solid deodorant recipe!
It is near impossible for me to choose just a few posts to feature. I let your hopping decide for me! Make sure you visit your favorites so I can feature them next week!
What is Homestead Helps Wednesday Homestead Hop?Homestead Helps is about helping each other consume less, produce more, and live simply. Posts about gardening (both in the ground or in containers), preserving the harvest, raising animals, frugal living, cooking from scratch, textile arts like sewing or knitting, recycling, repurposing, and upcycling, homemaking and home management are all welcome and appreciated! Did you just harvest your first tomato? We’d love to hear about it! New chicks? Don’t forget the pictures! Did you learn the best way not to do something? Share that, too! Do you grow your own groceries from the balcony of your condo? Show us how! I think you get the idea.
Create a “Homestead Helps” post on your own blog. Then come back here to add your post to the linky box below. Please, link to specific posts and not to your blog’s home page.
Each week, I’ll choose a post or two to feature during the next week’s link-up.
Don’t have a blog? Feel free to add a comment here with helpful homesteading stories and tips!
Now for just a few simple guidelines to make sure this is a useful and enjoyable experience for everyone:
1. Please, remember that this is a family-friendly site. No inappropriate content, please!
2. Please, link your posts back to this one. This is a common blog hop courtesy and helps build our online homesteading community. When your readers hop back here, they can read the other participants’ post, too. We all end up sharing with, learning from, and helping each other.
3. Please, visit a few of the other links. This is another common blog hop courtesy. While you’re visiting, be sure to leave a comment, letting the blog owner know you stopped by. Just because many of us wouldn’t mind living in a barn, me included, doesn’t mean we have to act like we were born in one.
4. No advertising-oriented posts. This hop is for sharing useful information, not free advertising. So, keep your links to posts involving homesteading and home management topics
Thanks for stopping by! I’m always nervous about doing something like this. It’s that whole throwing a party and nobody comes thing. So, please, leave a link so we can take the party to your blog for a little bit!
Grace and peace be yours in abundance,
