Homesteading Blog Love #4

Am I the only one here that is amazed at the fact that JANUARY IS ALMOST OVER?!

 

How did that happen, exactly?  Wasn’t it just Christmas?

 

Not to worry – No complaints here!  I’m ready for Winter to get a move on!  🙂  What have you been up to this week?

 

I was lucky enough to catch up with one of my best friends this week – Cara, from The Randazzo’s!   So here’s the thing with Cara and I.  We used to work together and are truly kindred spirits.  A year or so ago, we tried the “no-poo” thing – together.  We toughed it out for a number of months, but in the end, our hair was worse for wear.  So I’m sure you can imagine how thrilled I was when I saw her post this week – Finally!  A natural alternative to “no-poo”!  I’m officially trying it!  🙂

Well, The Browning Homestead has a few more mouths to feed on their homestead this week!  One of their sow’s blessed them with a litter of piglets this week – And Ashley shows us how to get it done – Like a BOSS!  🙂  This info should come in handy for us – one day!

Do you use baking soda at your home?  We do – often!  However, I have found that after reading Five Little Homesteader’s most recent post – there are even more uses I hadn’t thought of!    Check it out here!

As you know, we love eggs around here.  We love chickens, we love collecting eggs, and we especially love eating eggs!  Blue Yurt Farms tackled one of our major issues with farm fresh eggs – peeling them!  You have GOT to check this post out!

Oh, and I can’t help but mention…  Blue Yurt Farms also featured the Faulk Farmstead this week in their Homestead Tours segment!  How cool is that?   😉

Our dear Sally Gooden hasn’t been bred yet, so no milk for us!  However, hopefully one day she will!  In the meantime, I’ve been filling my head with as much info as I can handle – Such as this great post AND video from Green Eggs & Goats (I absolutely LOVE blogs with videos, don’t you?).  Check it out!
