Welcome to the Simple Homestead blog hop!

Welcome! I look forward to Thursdays when we get together for another linky party. Have fun exploring all the great ideas that are shared here each week on the hop. I'm sure you'll be blessed and inspired by all the great posts and ideas.

Add your homesteading, homemaking and homeschooling posts to the party if you're a blogger (please see our simple rules below). The hop begins at 12:01 am on Thursday morning and runs through Sunday evening.

This Week

One of our cohosts, Nancy from Nancy on the Homefront, is currently cohosting a great Holiday Prep Giveaway as part of the Season of Giveaways from Katherine's Corner. Through November 16 you can enter to win a $150 Target gift card to help with your holiday preparations. Nancy will be participating in several other giveaways during the holiday season, so be sure to follow her so you won't miss out on any opportunities.

All month long in November I'll be posting on Instagram about things I'm thankful for. I'd love to have you join in and post some of your "thankfuls" too. You'll find me here (and on Oak Hill Homestead's Facebook page here too) and you can find my earlier Instagram posts there too. #thankfulgratefulblessed

If you'd like to learn how to save seeds from more than twenty common garden vegetables, check out this in-depth seed-saving course by Kait of Kait's Garden that I recently discovered. This Simple Seed Saving course is presented in an easy-to-follow format with an abundance of photographs and includes detailed reference sheets for each vegetable that you'll be able to download and refer to again and again in the future. To find out more about Kait's Simple Seed Saving Course click here. (Yes, these are affiliate links. I'm excited about this course and just as excited to tell you about it!)
