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. 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, the most visited link was posted by Michelle at Simplify, Live, Love. Her adventure and advice for healthier groceries on a budget brought into some great Amish places!
I also think everyone got chickens for Easter this year because you all flocked to the Wild Sage Homestead for the excellent post Raising Chickens Part 2: A Beginner’s Guide to Providing 3 Basic Needs for Your Flock! You can groan about by cheesy pun now.
Last but not least, many of you wandered over to My Healthy Green Family to read about Free Range Mama’s experience with washing her hair with baking soda. This one was especially poignant for me because me and shampoo just don’t get along. I can finish off one bottle of any shampoo just fine; however, when I get to the second bottle all kinds of odd things start happening to my skin and hair. I’m in the process of creating a shampoo bar for myself, but I might try a little baking soda with an apple cider rinse myself.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 and come back and “like” them 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 and come back here to “like” your favorites. 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! Don't forget to leave a link so we can take the party to your blog for a little bit!
Grace and peace be yours in abundance,
