Life on our homestead continues to be busy and happy! My son is taking classes in college now, so I don't do very much homeschooling anymore. But I remember the days when I was always on the lookout for homeschooling helpers! I saw this free resource today and wanted to share it with you. I have no experience with this site, so if you try it and have any comments, I'd love to hear about it.
The Basic Homeschooling Workshop from Gregg Harris
I've been having lots of fun trying easy cheese recipes over the last couple of weeks. The recipes are available on my blog 'The Self Sufficient HomeAcre' if you would like to try making cheese too. I made Cottage Cheese last week and it turned out really good. My vintage collection from my Grandparents is always a fun topic to share. Today I posted photos of vintage Pyrex and dish towels from my Grandma P's kitchen on The Creative HomeAcre Hop. I love photographing my vintage treasures so you can take a peek into my childhood growing up on a farm.
Our weather is warming up a bit this week in our neck of the woods. I am so ready for spring! It will be another month before I can start my seedlings for the garden, but I'm chomping at the bit to get started! We have a nice layer of snow on the ground, which keeps the chickens from wandering out into their pasture when I open the door for them. I would like them to air their little butt feathers out more, so hopefully the snow will melt this week. :) I did have the unfortunate chore of putting one of my older hens down last week. I have had many issues with disease in my flock, you can read all about it in The Chicken Chronicles in my pages tab. Hopefully I won't have any more fall ill again, but I won't be holding my breath.
Last fall I planted a double red Amaryllis that's in full bloom right now and it is absolutely gorgeous! I shared a post with photos of its flowers and tips for growing Amaryllis on The Self Sufficient HomeAcre last week. You can read all about Growing Amaryllis there! Here's a little eye candy to tide you over. :)
Hope all is well on your homestead! What's happening in your neck of the woods?
