Simple Homestead blog hop #113

Welcome to the Simple Homestead blog hop!

We're so glad you've stopped by for a visit! Every week we get together here for another hop and I hope you'll join us. The Hop runs from Thursday morning to Sunday evening. Have fun exploring all the great ideas that have been shared, and add your homesteading, homemaking and homeschooling posts with us if you're a blogger. I'm sure you'll be blessed and inspired by all these great ideas!

This Week

Hubby and I are celebrating our wedding anniversary this week. We're looking forward to a visit from our middle daughter, and our granddaughter's visit is winding down. Busy, busy!

I've been a beekeeper now for three months. I've learned so much, and I have so much more to learn!

I've had my bees for three months now, but I'm still a newbee. Here's what's happening in the bee yard.

Cool late-summer mornings signal the does to start cycling, and the bucks are eager to break down the fence that separates them. How do you know when to breed your goats? Here's how I decide. (Don't worry, it's family friendly.)
