How exciting that we had 20 links posted to the first edition of Homestead Helps!! I don’t know about you, but I was pretty excited about all the interesting information shared! 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. Very cool! I hope you all join us again this week!
Last week, you all really liked The Redeemed Gardener’s "HUGELKULTUR", Raised Bed Experiment. Honestly, you cannot beat one of Clint’s posts for excellently detailed information!
Supporting Sustainable Meat in Your Community over at the Hopeful Homesteader also caught your eye. Me, too! But then again, anything Joel Salatin catches my eye!
Last but not least, you all enjoyed Like a Mustard Seed’s Medicinal Herbs…Common Forms and Preparations. How can you not love a post that simplifies something that intimidates most of us?!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, re-purposing, 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,
