5 Things Friday – 3/9/18

Welcome back to 5 Things Friday 3/9/18! I hope you all had a great week! Please comment with one of your favorite things that happened this week, or something that you are thankful for. 🙂 Every Friday I aim to post about 5 of my favorite things that week. I will try to post one thing for each of these categories: Homestead Garden, Homestead Critters, Homestead Kitchen, Homesteader Entertainment and Personal a thing from my Homesteader life. These may be handy gadgets, recipe’s, quotes or moments in time. I hope you will all share some of your Friday Favorites with me as well! Homestead Gardening Favorite: This week, my 5 Things Friday favorite gardening thing was the weather! It was beautiful all weekend thru Tuesday. I cleaned out a couple of chicken coops, started our Back to Eden mulching method under our apple trees, pruned the grapes and raspberries, planted fava beans and got some weeding done. You can see some of my progress in my March Homestead To Do List post. It was good to be outside working again! Homestead Critters Favorite: This week, my 5 Things Friday favorite critter thing, is this cute photo of our barn cat Otis. Otis lives in our goat shed and thinks he is a goat. They are his best friends, and he can often be seen sitting on a goat or cuddling next to one! He is a true feral cat rescue that we got from a local program called Barn Cats R US. They trap, neuter and return feral cats to a setting where they can do their good work keeping the rodent control at bay. Otis has never let us touch him, but he puts up with us doing chores around him. We love having him here…
