Free Resources to Teach Kids About Plants – Homestead Houligan

We do our best to spend as much time as possible outside, especially after a long, cold winter.  However, on the really rainy days, you may just need something to do with the kids inside.  The links I listed below are full of plant worksheets and activities for the little ones.  Some are outdoor activities as well, so not all for rainy days.

I decided that I would print up a…

Basic Homemade Bread – Blissed Adventures

Basic Homemade Bread – Blissed Adventures

PSX_20180524_175306.jpgIt took me forever to get the courage to bake bread. It was a mythical beast that only the most accomplished bakers could tackle. Turns out it was easy as pie. Actually, it is way easier than pie.

This is the basic bread recipe I follow to get a perfect loaf every time but I can also jazz it up from time to time with seeds or some cinnamon. Or make buns instead of bread. It is intentionally vague…

A Very Happy Bealtaine to everyone!

Even with the steady grey sky and rain, I feel so full of life and happiness!  The buds on the trees are swelling, the squill and and lungwort blooming!  I even spotted my kale peaking above the soaking earth.  It has been so damp here, so there is a fire on but we have plenty of firewood left over from the…

DIY Raise Bed Garden/Chicken Coop Combo – Hopewell Heights

By HOPEWELLHEIGHTS

Aquaponics vs EarthBox – 6 week (final) results – Three Acre Paradise

 BY CARL

ap_vs_eb_6wk_01We are now six weeks into the Aquaponics vs EarthBox challenge and there’s no big surprises since the three week results. The EarthBox plants have grown huge, I’ve even harvested them a few times. The aquaponics plants have grown, not a whole lot in size but they have a lot more leaves but not nearly as much as the EarthBox plants. I had originally planned a three month che….

Starting to Save Seed – Liberty Minded Agrarian

By BPANGIE

Seeds, seeds, seeds! I love seeds; I think it has to do with all the possibilities that a tiny dot the size of a pin head can hold (think brassicaes: broccoli, cauliflower, kale, etc.). Or maybe I love them for all of their different shapes and sizes – beans with their beautiful patterning and cool, smooth skin. Even Cucurbitaceae – squash – with their bland, brown, traditional…
