Simple Homestead blog hop #212

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

This week I'm holding a giveaway for my friend Amber Bradshaw's first book, Beekeeping for Beginners! If you're interested in possibly becoming a beekeeper, or if you're just interested in helping to protect bees, you'll love this book. Check out my review for the details on how to enter.

Also this week I'm privileged to be 15 Acre Homestead's Homestead Blogger of the Month!

I'm partnering with other garden and homestead bloggers to bring you information on preserving 23 of the most popular fruits and vegetables. There's no sign-up required to get this info, just follow the links and learn about the many methods of food preservation.

My contributions to the series are about the many ways to preserve and store apples, and how to preserve, store and use carrots. At the bottom of each post you'll find links to the other 21 preserving posts. Start your journey through the Preserving the Harvest series with this downloadable list so you can visit every post!
