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:

- the birth of our grandson this week
- holding that newborn grandson just hours after birth
- the smell of newly-baled hay
- our winter's hay supply stored away
- the first day of autumn, my favorite season
Silver Sunday

Children’s children are a crown to the aged,
and parents are the pride of their children.
Proverbs 17:6 NIV

FLASH SALE: The Prepper's Bundle

Foraging, seed saving, canning... homesteaders are striving to be self-sufficient. Surprise! So are preppers! If self-reliance were a Venn diagram, the "homesteading" and "prepping" circles would overlap a great deal; in fact, the homesteading circle might be completely encompassed inside the prepping circle.

So this month - National Preparedness Month - I'm running a challenge here on the blog to help you get organized and be prepared for emergencies. So far we've talked about how to be evacuation-ready and how to organize our families' important documents.

6 Unusual Things I'm Growing in the Garden

When I hear the words "vegetable garden," tomatoes spring to my mind; they are the reason I began gardening. You might think of green beans, or lettuce, or peas ... all those standard and well-known garden plants.

This year I've grown some experiments and some unusual plants. Some are well-known staples that I'm growing in unusual ways. Others are plants that I'd never even considered growing before, but my gardening know-how has increased enough that I think I can handle them.

A Slice of My Life

I've been a bit lazy about deadheading the rosebushes this summer. Lo and behold, look at this surprise! A rose hip on a knock-out rose bush. I need to be "lazy" more often!


My hope is to inspire you, and to encourage your homesteading plans and your dreams of a simple, self-reliant, God-dependent life. You can follow me at:
