Hello and welcome to another My Week on Wednesday where I take a few moments to share what I’ve been doing over the week. I share some of the blogs I’ve visited, and some of the things that I have learned.
I hope everyone had a very happy Mother’s Day!
This week the Boy wrote a guest post for me: Food Rules from a Fourth Grader. I think he did an amazing job, and I would love for you all to go check it out!
If you live where there are ticks, or anywhere there might be ticks, you need to know about Natural Tick & Lyme Disease Prevention. This is an excellent article just plain full of great information!
Do you have a rain barrel? It is on my homesteading list, and after you check out Why You Want a Rain Barrel from Gentleman Homestead Consulting, you will want one too! Happily he also provides do-it-yourself instructions on how to make one!
And, Let’s Talk About: Peppermint. I happen to have a ton of mint growing in my yard (like it’s taking over my yard!) and the Pixie’s Pocket has a great article that will tell you all the wonderful things it’s used for! Also Timber Creek Farm has a wonderful post about Herb Gardening. Not only will she tell you how to plant them (incidentally, she will tell you to plant the “spreading herbs” — like mint — in pots), she talks about preserving them and using them, too!
On to things that are Tasty & Delicious…
The Homestead Lady shares a post about Kefir Fermented Bread Dough. I am seriously intrigued!
Gluten-Free, Vegan, Raw Strawberry Cheesecake. This has to happen.
And Mom Prepares shares Mouthwatering Cherry Recipes. I absolutely love cherries and both my cherry trees finally blossomed! Together. At the same time. And there were bees buzzing around them. Is it too much to hope that I will actually get cherries this year?
Finally, approximately daily, I post quotes on my Facebook Page. The quote with the most likes, shares, and comments will become the Quote of the Week.
And soooo… your Quote of the Week:
