What to Grow in a Small Garden

Do you long for a garden but don't have the space for one? Is your yard too small, or do you live in an apartment and only have a patio or balcony? I know that some of you are still wishing to move to a homestead with more land, and that others of you are homesteading where you are, whether it's a suburban home or an urban apartment.

What to grow in a patio garden.

You can still have a small garden. And while many people think that August means the end of gardening season, it's not too late to plant a fall garden in most areas. Or start planning now, gather your pots and containers, and get growing early next spring.

Melt-and-Pour Soap, a Shortcut to Making Your Own Soap

Do you want to make your own soap, but are afraid of using sodium hydroxide (lye)?

How to make melt-and-pour soap.

It is possible, sort of. Instead of mixing liquid and lye with oils, you can buy ready-made soap base that you then "melt and pour" to make your own soap.

Silver Sunday and Being Thankful

And the words of the Lord are flawless, like silver... Psalm 12:6 NIV

I am thankful to the Lord, my God, for:

- several days of slightly cooler weather
- songbirds at the feeders
- autumn on the horizon
- a sweet breeze on a hot day
- raindrops
Silver Sunday

You, God, are my God,
    earnestly I seek You;
I thirst for You,
    my whole being longs for You,
in a dry and parched land
    where there is no water.
Psalm 63:1 NIV
