Family Homesteading & Off the Grid Blog Hop #33

The chill is creeping in, which means a few winter-prep items are on our to-do lists. We have 2 cords of semi-seasoned wood being delivered in a week so there's stacking to prepare for, and the shed build needs to stay on track so the roof can go on and the herb planters can be stored safely away before the first frosts.

Our pumpkins are still a bit green, but are sized nicely and will be a treat once halloween arrives. We're still canning at a good speed, with more tomatoes coming in as a race against frost. We're still harvesting watermelon, believe it or not, and the neighbors will be getting theirs any day now.

Garden clean up is around the corner, and we have our hard-neck garlic ready to put in the ground for next year. The bees are working overtime getting themselves ready for the snow, and a week or two from now we will be wrapping the hives for additional warmth and protection. The key is to keep calm and move forward- everything in it's own time.

!!!Featured Post from Last Week!!!

Our featured blog post from last week is from Melissa over at the Little Frugal Homestead with her post sharing her classic pumpkin bread recipe- just in time for harvest! It has inspired me to get our baking rolling for the season, as the cooler temps make heating the kitchen with warm smells of fresh bread a pleasure. Congrats!
