Mud on the homestead. It’s a real thing. Learn how to deal with mud in regards to your livestock, your gardens, and even your floors! Also, a bit about my latest crafts and why you’ll want to start felting your wool products in the dryer. It’s so much easier.
Remember, you can join us LIVE on our Facebook Page, Thursdays at noon (Eastern Standard Time).
Homestead Thursdays #2: Mud & Crafting
Find out why I choose sand for my chicken run and coop. It may not keep things completely dry during mud season, but it does dry faster than organic options when things start to dry out.
If you’re new to trimming goat hooves, here’s your guide. It also chats about signs of infect so you know what to look for.
I know you’re itching to get out in the garden. This information about gardening zones and frost dates might help you narrow down when it’s the right time to get started.
If you’ve already got damaged soil, here are some tips to help repair it.
The awesome boot cleaner thingy! Seriously, you need to have one of these. It’s awesome and it’s cheap. Get one for every door. You’ll thank me!
My all-purpose cleaner recipe, plus a bunch of other natural DIY cleaning recipes that will totally green your home. I am also including a link to the Libman (not Liberman) mop that I use. Close enough, right? LOL
This is the crochet pattern I use for replacement pads for my mop.
My friend, Janet of Timber Creek Farm, has a tutorial for making needle felted Easter eggs. If you’re looking for supplies to get you started in needle felting, look no further than Create for Less. I shop there for all sorts of my crafting needs. These are the needles I got (I just used a cork instead of a tool because, well, I’m cheap) and I did get the larger felting mat. Honestly, I should have read the description because “large” is only 4″x6″ and I would have preferred a larger size. They have other options available, so poke around and make sure you know how big the one you are getting really is.
I think that’s all folks! See you next Thursday on Facebook for another episode of Homestead Thursdays.
