5 Things Friday – 4/13/18

Welcome back to 5 Things Friday 4/13/18! I hope you all had a great week! 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 is our pair of Rainier Cherry Trees are in bloom. They are one of the reasons we bought this lot when we were shopping for a piece of land to build our home on. They frame our view of the valley and Mt Pilchuck and I love when they are in bloom! Homestead Critters Favorite: This week, my 5 Things Friday favorite critter thing is having chicks in the house again! We didn’t hatch these, they are one of my daughters’ FFA projects and we picked them up last night. They are meat birds for the livestock auction, but it is still fun to have chicks again! We love this little brooder and use it in place of a heat lamp. Homestead Kitchen Favorite: My 5 Things Favorite Kitchen item thing this week was getting my pressure canner out again and using it. It has been way too long! I pulled out a ton of frozen tomatoes from the freezer, and made a huge batch of sauce and canned it all up. Made a bunch of room in the freezer and restocked the pantry a bit too! Stay tuned for a post coming up very soon on canning…
