Where has the week gone? It seems like I blinked and Friday was here. The good news? If Friday is here, then it’s time for another fantastic From the Farm Blog Hop!
Each week the From the Farm Blog Hop co-hosts welcome a fellow blogger to come join in the fun and guest host along with us. This week’s guest host is Mindie from The (mis)Adventures of a “Born Again” Farmgirl! Welcome Mindie!
On a 1/4 acre in a small town lives a slightly deranged woman (that’s me!) who never thought she would be a Farm Girl again. I tried so hard to “escape” my roots, but then I grew up, got married and had a family. My oldest country kid (I have two sons 7 and 1) asked for a pet chicken a few years ago, so I did what any good mom would and bought him one! That was the beginning of the end so to speak. We now have chickens, ducks, and rabbits (besides non “farm” animals which include such oddities as a baby snapping turtle and a baby red squirrel we are rehabbing.)
I bake using sourdough, I garden to produce healthy food for my family, but most of all, I have learned to embrace with a passion all those things that I once wanted to distance myself from. It is not the amount of land you live on, but what you do on that land that makes you a homesteader and I am proud to share this type of life with my family. We don’t always get it right, thus the name (mis)Adventures, but that is half the fun!
Each week, we also select a few favorite links from the previous week’s hop. Here are the features from last week’s From the Farm Blog Hop #35 party:
Making Honeysuckle Jelly by Stacked Stone Farm
Collecting Seed by Smart Food Storage
How to Clean a Coffee Maker Naturally and On the Cheap by Poor and Gluten Free
Simple Granola by Heritage Schoolhouse
Congratulations to the bloggers who provided our favorite posts last week! I can’t wait to see what fantastic recipes, DIY projects, and helpful tips will be linked up this week.
Each week, we’re hoping that you will share up to three of your favorite posts here on the From the Farm Blog Hop. Our hop may be “From the Farm”, but your post doesn’t have to be. If you’re a farmer at heart or a suburbanite with a backyard farm that consists of a container garden, your post will be perfectly at home here.
1. Link up to three of your best gardening or homesteading tips, farm-themed posts, recipes, homemaking and simple/frugal living tips, decorating ideas, DIY projects, craft ideas, thrifty makeovers or repurposed items, healthy and sustainable living tips.
2. Link back to my blog, or put the link party button anywhere on your blog or post to share the love.
3. Make sure to check out some of the other links before leaving. You’ll be sure to find a new recipe, great DIY project, or gardening tip to use this summer. I find something fantastic every week and I know that you will too!
Note: Linking up to this party will automatically sign you up for an invite to next week’s party via email. To unsubscribe, please reply to any email you receive and you will be removed. Linking up also allows us permission to publish one of your photos on our blogs, Facebook, and/or Pinterest pages. If you are interested in guest hosting for our blog hop, please feel free to contact Kristi by email.
To make sure that you don’t miss out on any of the fun, come follow From the Farm on Facebook and on our new blog. We’ve got a new page, a fantastic group of contributors and followers, and neverending conversation for you to join in. We’ll hope to see you there!
