Welcome to the Homestead Blog Hop!

All better!

I’m happy to report, for all those who’ve asked about our family, that we are all finally back in the land of the healthy! 👏🏼 🤩🏃‍♀️

Everybody’s up out of bed, eating, and feeling no tummy rumbles, so that’s progress!

Aaannnnd…that’s a lie! 😿

Last night, I thought that was true! Now, Greg’s back in the bed! Sick again! Keep the poor guy in prayer, since his tummy is still not well! 🤢

We’ve had some wonderful weather, and a couple of days already are feeling summery! But then, thankfully, we get some cooler nights thrown in!

We’ve been planting! Tiny seedlings have sprouted up, and so we’ve also been transplanting them!

On our family, we have personal plant favorites.

Greg’s are tomatoes. 🍅


Adam loves peppers. 🌶

I love sunflowers, but can’t decide beyond that, because I like all flowers! 🌻

The other boys aren’t saying yet. 😉

In the times we are living in, growing a garden is one of the best ways to provide food, exercise, and useful work for your family. 🍆🍓🥑🌶🌽

I’m glad we have a community of like-minded homestead-focused people like you! Let’s keep the practical ideas coming along!

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.

  1. I am so glad that everyone is healthy in your household! It sounded pretty difficult! I am trying to nurture our fruit trees. Maybe i will try a garden in the fall!

  2. Thank you for your words. It’s good that everyone seems to be getting better and you’re certainly preparing nicely and hopefully you will be rewarded with a fine harvest 🙂

  3. I’m so glad you and your family are back on your feet, thriving even. Same goes for your veggies. I can literally feel the energy!

  4. Thanks so much for hosting this wonderful party each and every week!! I really appreciate the time and effort that goes into it along with visiting all the links and choosing Features!!! Thank You!! Stay safe, healthy and happy!!

  5. It snowed this morning!! Um… how rude??? Here, we have a month to wait before we can start planting. You never know what’s going to happen. I enjoyed the start that you got to your plants and the list of favorites. It makes spring feel real, even on a strangely snowy day.

What is your experience? 💜 I read every comment, and so many times I find that I gain encouragement from what’s shared. ❤️
