Barn Hop #17

Welcome! It's time for a Monday Homestead Barn Hop! And we have a new feature that has been added...

When you read a fellow blogger's post that is linked below, and you like it, be sure to comment and let them know you've been there (because we ALL like to get comments, right?) and then come here and "like" it, right underneath their thumbnail photo. You can "like" as many as you want. It's not a contest, but rather a way for you to share which posts are a good read. Be sure to try reading some that haven't had a "like" hit since there could be a great treasure and a new friend behind that thumbnail. Meeting new homesteaders is part of how we are all community!

Here at my own homestead, my husband has just finished cutting out the brackets that will go on the back of the garage for my new clothesline. These will soon be painted white, attached to the wall, and then eyes added for a few lines. 

Millie has been doing a good job looking cute... good thing since she is still chewing up everything left in plain sight! Gardening gloves, dead wood peckers, potted plants, pieces of wood, all her chew toys (they literally disappear into little shreds), unidentified objects, ...

The Freedom Rangers are now out of the coop and actually free ranging in a tractor. Sometimes I just let them out to roam when I'm outside. Of the 25, I've lost 3, and 2 are just hanging on. Who knows? They may make it until time for butchering. They can still access food, water, and grass, and they don't seem to be the brunt of pecking. The feed company is working with us on the issue, so I'm happy about that.

The garden is looking better every day, but I don't have any pictures to share - sorry about that! I'm harvesting lettuce, potatoes are coming up, and tomatoes are in along with some other veggies. And that about sums it up for this week at my place. How about you?

Your Turn To 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 Hop banner 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!
