connecting the homesteading community

I can’t believe it is Friday once again and oh man what a long week it has been.  I have barely gotten a blog post in at all this week well at least the one post I did was worthy of your attention because I am telling you those donuts are amazing!  Please tell me someone tried them!  If you did let me know I can’t wait to hear about it.

The Ole’ Saturday Homesteading Trading Post is back again in full swing now that we have been back to a full time blog hop for a couple of weeks again and I hope all of you will link up and guess what anyone can link up as long as your post is homesteading related!  I hope all of you are doing fabulous and have had a great week!

This week flew by and I went up to the central part of our state to a Technology Conference and it was good but I missed my family and my dog and chickens too!  I know some of you are wondering where the next giveaway is and I am too but truthfully I have been away at a Technology Conference this week and I have not had much time to prepare or plan for this weekend as a matter of fact I am more like “Where did this week go?”.  I wonder if this resonates with any of you as we are in the midst of March Madness!

I also have to get ready to work on our taxes….ugh finances while I am really good at being frugal or a cheap date as I tell the Viking In My Life however I need constant inspiration and motivation in the financial realm this is why one of my favorite blogs is Canadian Budget Binder….Mr. CBB kind of help keeps me motivated and on track and continuously reminds me to stay the course if you haven’t checked out his site well you should you won’t regret it!

Oh and I have to show you what became of that Bradford Pear Tree here is the pile of roots and the rubble it became but you need to know that I see a home for my peach tree 🙂

I am so glad you came by to join us at The Ole Saturday Homesteading Trading Post what I love mostly about this hop is that it is for all things homesteading related and as pioneers did and made everything themselves the sky is truly the limit.  I hope you link up this week and if not just come in and look around at these amazing bloggers I am always so glad to read each blog post that links up that  I take the time to read and personally respond to each and every link up!  I get to meet new homesteading friends, ask questions and learn new skills and so can you!


I have such a heart and a fondness for the homesteading/prepping/offgrid community but I have many folks say to me that they want to live off grid but they can’t or they live in the city so they are not a farm girl.  That is simply not true….being a farm girl or a prepper or whatever else is a state of mind you can choose to be whoever you want to be!  Homesteading equates to freedom in my opinion!  Come join the homesteading movement!  Will you dare?

    1. LisaLynn I was out of town at a Technology Conference for part of the week and so glad to be home. Sounds like a neat linky I will definitely look for it! Thanks for sharing! How are you doing at your place?

  1. Good luck with your peaches. That isn’t really something we’re able to grow down here due to our fickle spring weather. I’m sharing a book review on a new release called Plowing with PIgs. It is a wonderful book on efficient economical ways to homestead. It was a great read and we learned a lot from it. I hope you have a great week! Thank you for hosting.

    1. I will have to hop on over and read your book review I have not even heard about this one! Thanks for sharing your thoughts and I am so happy you linked up this week! By the way we had a few peaches on the peach tree last year and are hoping for lots more this year 🙂 I will keep you posted on its progress.

I Love Hearing From All Of You! Thanks for sharing!
