family homesteading and off the grid blog hop

Spring has certainly hit- though the mud hasn't taken complete control yet, the lake is quickly melting away the top ice and the song birds are out in force. 

It's a great time to be a homesteader. 

We have one boil of maple sugaring under our belts, canning up just over a gallon. Tonight, the kids and I will pull buckets again, and if the weather acts the way it is suppose to, we should have another gallon put away by tomorrow afternoon.

Our beehive business is booming, with at least one order in the works since February. This took off better than we expected, and seeing as no one around here will be starting any new hives for about two mo the, the volume of orders is expected to stay steady. Then, it is split season-

The chickens are doing their job in the raised beds as of yesterday, scratching away and seeking out bugs for a snack. The more they dig out, the better our garden's strength when it comes time to plant. Go, chickens!
