Good Monday morning to ya! Thanks for joining the Barn Hop ladies, Amy from Homestead Revival, Jill from The Prairie Homestead, and myself, for another weekly round-up of linky love.

I hope you had a great weekend. I can’t believe how busy I’ve been this past week! I feel like I have a hundred things to write about, and don’t know where to start. Our green beans have come in, so I’ve been busy harvesting them. We lost two baby turkeys to the crazy triple-digit heat. Our cat got in a fight with a groundhog. I made a deal with a local blueberry farmer who is letting me pick for him in exchange for free blueberries, so I’ve been doing that. I’m working on a homemade kitchen set for Xia’s 3rd birthday in a few weeks. Oh, and I’ve spent HOURS cleaning out our attic and sorting stuff into keep, sell, or donate piles. How in the world did we end up with so much STUFF?!

Anyways, these are the highlights people. I hope you’ve been pleasantly productive in your own worlds!

Last week, one particular post was extremely exciting to me, and I knew I just had to share it with any of you who might have missed it…

Oh my gosh, this is so crazy, and AWESOME…

Dandelion Soda.

I totally have to do this.

Mellow over at A Life Unprocessed wrote a fantastic How-To on making Lacto-Fermented Dandelion Soda. If you didn’t already read it during the week, go check it out. I just love learning new ways to use wild edibles!

Thanks for the awesome tutorial, Mellow! I’m so curious to see what this tastes like.

What about you? Did you have a particular favorite post from last week’s linkup?

Did you share anything “homesteading” on your blog this week? If so, we’d love to have you link up below! Even if you don’t have a blog, we always welcome your comments!

Please remember that the Homestead Barn Hop is meant to be a place to share homesteading related encouragement and inspiring ideas specifically related to homesteading. In an effort to keep our weekly round-up clutter free, links which are not specifically homestead related, and any promotions such as giveaways, contests, carnivals, etc, will be deleted in order to maintain the integrity of the Barn Hop. Please remember this is a family friendly link up. Any pictures or posts linked to the hop which aren’t appropriate for our children to view or read will also be deleted immediately. We’re pretty conservative, so we ask that you use good judgment and err on the side of caution.

Make sure that you link to your Barn Hop post, not your blog’s main page, so your guests won’t have any trouble finding your great tips!

We would also appreciate it if you would link back to the Homestead Barn Hop in the post that you share! Feel free to grab the banner at the top of this post to link back to us with.


Want a chance to be a “Featured Homestead” next week?

Be sure you’ve included the actual Barn Hop button on your post, with a link back to us. Thank you for sharing the message about the Homestead Barn Hop!

Occasionally there is a problem posting due to glitches in the internet or the Linky Tools. If you have difficulties posting and it does not show up immediately, please wait a little while and try re-posting (this helps avoid double posting). We’re sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, but we do not have absolute control over the internet. Thank you for your patience and understanding!
