Part of the homestead lifestyle is being willing to try new things. Have you ever wondered about eating acorns? Vickie from Making Our Sustainable Life wrote a fascinating post on her adventures of trying acorns.

I always have a hard time picking a post to feature as there are so many to chose from!  One of the things I enjoy about fall is pumpkins! I love pumpkin soup, pumpkin pie and pumpkin muffins. Now thanks to Grace who’s blog is Queen of the Red Double Wide I have a recipe for Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice Mix! Thank you so much for sharing on the HomeAcre Hop Grace!

I have often thought that pigs would be a god addition to our little homestead. Last week Mike and Erin who write the blog Blue Yurt Farms wrote a very informative post on Pastured Pigs: Fencing and Shelter. Not only was the post full of useful information but they shared a wonderful video of their pigs and a goose! Pigs, fencing and geese!
