Thank you to everyone who has been linking back to Homestead Revival, The Prairie Homestead, or New Life on a Homestead. It's like flying the colors of the homestead community and showing others the way to a great life living closer to the land!
Lately I've been very interested in urban gardening solutions. Just a couple of weeks ago, I was pouring over books at Barnes & Nobles for balcony gardens, city gardens, and small spaces. I'm blown away by the creative ideas others have for working within their given situation, turning cement jungles into a garden oasis. Roten and Katha shared their Tel Aviv Lettuce Tower at Outside the Vault on the Barn Hop last week and I'm thrilled to include them as our Featured Homesteaders this week! (Check out their Sweet Potato Experiment while you're there).
"If you live in the city like we do and your growing space is limited, the growing tower is your ultimate solution. I do not know who was the first to think about it, but I find it ingenious. All you'll need for making your own tower is a plastic sewage pipe and a drill with a hole saw."
If you've been featured in the past...
If you've been a featured blogger on the Barn Hop, either today or in the past, we now have a special button for you should you wish to add it to your sidebar stating that you've been a featured blogger! You can find it on my button page by clicking the hen with the blue barn on my sidebar that says "HR Buttons". It's a good idea to link it back to the page where you were featured so your readers can see where you're actually mentioned. (These buttons do not have a code since it needs to be linked to the page you're featured in and it will change from week to week. Just copy the button or drag it to your desktop).
