Simple Homestead blog hop #141

Welcome to the Simple Homestead blog hop!

Hi there! Every week we get together for another linky party, and I'm always glad to see you. Our Simple Homestead blog hop runs from Thursday morning to Sunday evening.

Have fun exploring all the great ideas that have been shared. Add your homesteading, homemaking and homeschooling posts to the party if you're a blogger. I'm sure you'll be blessed and inspired by all the great posts and ideas.

This Week

I love perennial vegetables but there don't seem to be that many of them, at least when you compare them to the variety of perennial fruits that can be grown in the garden and orchard. Walking onions are a staple in my garden. Walking onions can be harvested almost year-round and you can keep your onion patch going for years.

It's almost time for tiny spears of asparagus to begin poking up through the soil, at least here in the South. When you're tired of plain asparagus on your dinner plate again, try this delicious Cream of Asparagus Soup for something different (and delicious).

This week I reviewed Practical Organic Gardening, the No-Nonsense Guide to Growing Naturally. Read my review here.
