Welcome to The HomeAcre Hop!

After a wonderful two weeks in the Pacific Northwest I am finally back home in Vermont. I love Washington and Oregon and spending time with our four children is always fun! Managed to explore both the cities of Portland and Seattle and spend some time hiking as well. All too soon it was time to say good bye and head home.

Here On The Home Front I’m still waiting for my tomatoes to turn red! It’s also been a busy week as we’re getting ready for a trip to Montreal with my daughter and her family. It’s only a few hours from our home but I’ve never been! Should be fun!

I am really enjoying reading the posts everyone is linking up! You sure make it hard to pick two favorites, there were so many informative and interesting posts. My two favorites were:

Sweet Tea by Dolly is Cooking. I have never lived in the south unless you count seven years in Florida as “south” but I love sweet tea. Dolly shared a wonderful recipe for Sweet Tea that I am going to have to try this summer! Thanks so much Dolly sharing your post on the Home Acre Hop!

The second post that caught my eye was DIY Microwave Popcorn by A Life Unprocessed. I am striving to live a life where we are eating real food all the time. I love popcorn and have made it on the stove, in a hot air popcorn maker and in a paper bag. I never tried making it in a bowl in the microwave before! Thank you Mellow for sharing your post, I look forward to giving this a try!

Congratulations Dolly and Mellow!

I had so much fun reading the posts from last week! It was hard to pick two favorites, there were so many informative and interesting posts. My two favorites were:

Drying Herbs for Beginners by Home Ready Home. As a fellow herb grower and a lover of mason jars I found this post very informative if you are drying your own herbs at home!

Fermented Garlic Dill Pickles by Let This Mind Be in You is a post I will be pinning and using letter when my cucumbers are ripe! I’ve not made fermented pickles before but I plan to try this year.
