Saving Money on Chicken Feed: Week Four of the Self-Reliance Challenge


6+ ways to save money on chicken feed, from Oak Hill Homestead. #selfreliantchallenge

This month, due to some unexpected circumstances, my feed budget is nearly non-existent. I need to stretch the bagged chicken feed in the shed as far as I can. This has made me realize that I've been lazy lately: I've been relying on the feed store to feed my chickens instead of using the resources we have here on the homestead.

Triple Berry Jam



What do you do when you get to the end of strawberry season but don't have enough berries for yet another batch of strawberry jam? And they aren't as flavorful and juicy as they could be. And maybe you're tired of strawberries by now, so you're tempted to take them out to the compost pile. (I know, but it happens.)

Silver Sunday


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


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

- coming home
- a new raised bed finished!
- tomato plants
- overnight rain
- a scissortail flycatcher in the yard
Silver Sunday

My soul yearns, even faints,
    for the courts of the Lord;
my heart and my flesh cry out
    for the living God.
Even the sparrow has found a home,
    and the swallow a nest for herself,
    where she may have her young—
a place near your altar,
    Lord Almighty, my King and my God.
Blessed are those who dwell in your house;
    they are ever praising you.
