Barn Hop #48

Welcome to our weekly Homestead Barn Hop where you have a chance to link up your post on homesteading and visit other homesteaders via the internet! As hostesses, Jill, Kendra, Kelly, and I are so blessed to have each of you help cultivate the homesteading community by contributing your knowledge, experience, and yes, even your failures that we can all learn from.

As you probably already know, I'm trying to get my garden ready for the spring, but it's a slow process locating items. I'm also trying to locate a couple of nucs of Carniolan bees, just learned to draw blood on my goats to test them for CAE and CL so I can breed our doe, made soap this weekend, and have been on the hunt for another goat to add to our small herd. Life on a homestead can be busy, even in winter!

I'm trying to get a few posts together on soap making for those interested, the first of which should post tomorrow. Until then, I can't wait to see what's happening at your place!

Join The Barn Hop!
and Amy @ Homestead Revival...

...invite you to link up and share your homesteading adventures!

1. Write a blog post about what's going on at your homestead or a post on something you're learning or an item of interest that will benefit the homesteading community. Be sure to add the red barn button and link back here so others can join in the fun.

2. Come back here and enter your information in the Linky. Please be sure to link to your actual post (click your title and then copy the URL above) and not your home page so those participating later in the week can find your post easily.

3. If you don't have a blog, leave a comment and tell us what's going on at your homestead!

Please Note: As hostesses of the Homestead Barn Hop, please understand that we reserve the right to remove any links that are not family friendly. While this may be subjective, we will err on the side of caution in order to keep our blogs appropriate for all readers. Thank you for your understanding!


  1. #79 may be little "floofy" but, hey, we all need a little pampering sometimes. Enjoy!

  2. Hi Amy!
    I too am starting out with bees. I bet you are so excited. I decided to try the nucs and ordered two locally here on the East Coast. Have you seen this place? Here is a place that sell New World Carniolan (NWC) nucs in CA. They look be promising :)

  3. Thanks for hosting! I posted my cultured lemons full of healthy probiotics! Join me for Cultured Mondays!

  4. I added my link to the hop today :) :) I've got to get myself linked up to all the parties this week. Then I'm going to doubule check I"ve got blog buttons etc. I haven't figured out an easy way of adding the hyperlinks back to the various link-ups yet...other than entering them in one by one every week. Do you have any tips? Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :)

    1. Heather, I don't know how to do it other than like you suggested... one at a time. If you figure it out, let the rest of us know! Always glad to have you link up!
