Spring is well sprung here in Texas, and while many of you are still dealing with snow or frosts, we are already out of the greenhouse with most of our plants and they should all be in the ground by the end of the weekend. This year was a lot more work than it typically would be because we were having to build and establish so many new beds. Fortunately, we found the mother load of perfect soil in our pasture when we remembered that the area we used to feed the horses had been composting for 4+ years. Sure enough, there was more composted hay, horse manure, and sand then I could use to fill all beds I made. Although, my back says that I made a pretty serious dent in it. We are getting close to finishing everything up though, which is good since there are a ton more projects waiting in the wings including a barn and milking parlors.
I am proud to join some of my blogging friends The Homesteading Hippy, Spring Mountain Living, Lil’ Suburban Homestead , The Homestead Lady, Urban Overalls , Once Upon A Time in A Bed of Wildflowers, Oh Sweet Mercy , Lady Lee’s Home, Honey’s Life, and Lady and The Carpenter in hosting the blog hop. This is a great opportunity to link up a post if you are a blogger or to find some great articles across a wide range of subjects from many different bloggers. This is going to be a ton of fun and I hope that if you have a blog you will link up with us, and if you are one of my wonderful readers you will take a moment to find some great information that I may not cover because it is outside my wheelhouse. We recently chose, as a group, to change the format somewhat. You will notice that we no longer individually pick favorite posts to promote. Instead, we decided to let YOU choose which of the posts from the previous week are the top 5 posts, by clicks. So….
It’s time for another round of From The Farm where we love to see your ideas on gardening, homesteading, DIY tips and tricks, and more. Last Week’s Top 5 Favorites, as chosen by YOU:
