Welcome to the Homestead Blog Hop!

Good rainy morning to everyone! We are supposed to hit 81 today, so it now feels like we are jumping into Spring/Summer/whatever! But wait a minute and it’ll ago back to Winter temps again.

I can hear lots of Spring Peepers! They are a sure sign of warmer days!Istock photo spring peeper

But the best part about Spring is the wildflowers! Im homebound today, so I will avail myself of the opportunity for a walk in the woods.

I hope you can get outside a bit today and explore something–even if it’s your own backyard!

Here’s a tiny video featuring the tiny Spring Peepers! 🐸


I’m so glad you could join us for the homestead blog hop. We always have such great contributors with ideas and tips that are practical and frugal. I love it! Scroll down and check it out.

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! Basically anything related to homesteading.
