Welcome to the Homestead Blog Hop!

Howdy again, bloggers!

We are experiencing crisp mornings and cooler evenings! How about your area?




Fall is my favorite time of the year! We are getting in very close–savor every moment of the transition!


Our garden is putting forth its last effort! I keep finding purple beans to pick and can. Less and less, but still enough to pay attention to.

The tomatoes are petering out, but Greg is saving the seeds for later.

Next major garden effort is digging the sweet potatoes and curing them, then the Irish potatoes.

I’m kind of dreading doing the regular potatoes–I may can up a bunch of them–that’s crazy, right? Just want to make sure we don’t lose then. One year we left them in the ground (on purpose) all winter. They did pretty well, but digging frozen ground was a challenge if I wanted to cook potatoes! And finding them was hard too, once the leaves died back.

Gardening is a lot of trial and error, isn’t it?

Do you find that too?

Have a great day!


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. Thank you for the feature!

    And I never thought about leaving potatoes in the ground during the winter. Obviously only works where the ground freezes — there’s no freezing here unfortunately!
