Decisions….Decisions…..each week we have been having some fantastic blog articles link up  to “The Ole’ Saturday Homesteading Trading Post” and this week has been no exception but because it has been so hot and because my cucumbers did not do fantastic this year this was an easy pick for me I chose “Cranky Puppy’s When Life Gives You Cucumbers Make Cucumber Soup“….no I haven’t tried it yet but I have cucumbers in the fridge for this very occasion this weekend!  I have been craving cucumbers….I truly love them!  I love them plain or pickled it really doesn’t matter.  I am actually making freezer pickles today which are delicious too.

When I first stumbled up on Cranky Puppy Farm via the internet my first thought is that she conveyed her message brilliantly via her blog header on her website I mean from first glance I learned a lot of what her blog was about.  I love the messy post-it because it reminds me of the way that I write out my lists of things to do.

This is the tagline as it reads on her site….it compells you to stop in, stay awhile and poke around.

This blog belongs to two Gen X-er’s smackdab in downtown Kansas City where we’ve been renovating and decorating two old Victorians built in the 1890’s. Our life is filled with 3 demanding Pomeranians (1 of them cranky, of course), honking cars, noisy neighbors and the hustle and bustle of city life but we dream of the day when we can move to our 40-acre farm and hear nothing but the wind and the cows next door. Until then, we’re chronicling our triumphs and mishaps here as we try to garden and preserve on 2 city lots, raise chickens, and learn all those things we should have learned from our grandparents. Welcome to our world – we hope you’ll stay awhile!

They are a couple that owns 40 acres and they will be building their dream homestead on this site.  Click here to see!

You definitely have to get over there to Cranky Puppy Farm it’s just like taking a virtual field trip to the country and she just has a real unique way at looking at the world….Isn’t that what we are looking for when we go blog hopping?  I know I am looking for clever innovative ideas that are going to make my life easier and that have been tested by someone else.

I really do hope you take a look at her blog I know you will so enjoy it!
