Homestead Blog Hop #44

Homestead Blog Hop every Wednesday featuring real food recipes, natural health remedies, DIY, crafts, Gardening Tips, and more...

Welcome to the Homestead Blog Hop!

This year has been interesting. We had a fairly wet spring, not as bad as some of our friends further north, but we were delayed in planting our garden. Even after our garden was in, we were still getting a good bit of rain. Then it was like someone turned the spigot off, it turned really dry. The heat has been another issue this year for us. We have had heat indexes in excess of 105 degrees more this year than any I can remember and I take notice of things like that. 

Rain started this weekend and has not let up. The temperature is much more bearable, and the plants really needed it. I am already seeing the signs of the approaching fall and I am ready for it. If you would like to know more about the signs people have used to predict weather I invite you to check out this post.

Some would call if folklore, I call it observation. Watching the signs will give you a heads up on what the weather will be like.

  Now on to the hop... Homestead Blog Hop will take place every Wednesday and is for all things homesteading: real food recipes, farm animals, crafts, DIY, how-to's, gardening, anything from-scratch, natural home/health, self-sufficiency, self-reliance, natural remedies, essential oils, & more! Basically anything related to homesteading.
