Simple Homestead blog hop #99

Welcome to the Simple Homestead blog hop!

We are so glad that you have stopped by for a visit! We encourage you to look through some of the great posts shared by our readers and then take the time to read those that interest you. If you are adding to our list, thank you for sharing your homesteading, homemaking, and homeschooling posts with us. It’s so much fun to read your hints, tips, and happenings. We hope you have fun exploring all the great ideas everyone has shared with us.

This Week

I'm getting ready to move the big brooder into my chicken coop and trying to figure out how to rearrange the girls' basic needs inside so that it all fits. It's kind of like rearranging the furniture in your living room: how can I make it all fit and still function well?

Not sure what the "basics" are? This post explains it all.
