    Welcome to

Our Simple Homestead Blog Hop #16!

I know the calendar says September but it sure feels like July! I hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day weekend. Every Labor Day we have a “mini-reunion” with many of our dear friends joining us for the weekend. These are friends we’ve known for years, in fact one of the guys my husband has been friends with since he was 4 years old! Special, dear friends to say the least! They all pitched in and helped us finish our wood project! What a great feeling to have it all done!

Wood project is finished!

    Welcome to

Our Simple Homestead Blog Hop #15!

Where has the summer gone? I can’t believe it’s September! We have a busy Labor Day weekend ahead. Lots of friends and family visiting! It’s always a fun way to end the summer! It feels like summer although if you look at the hillsides you can already see the leaves are no longer that vibrant green.

    Welcome to

Our Simple Homestead Blog Hop #12!

It’s been a hot week this week, temperatures almost in the 90s which is warm for Vermont. I continue to pick blueberries every other day and trying to stay ahead of the bands and tomatoes! Luckily we’ve had company the last few days so I can serve fresh veggies from the garden!
