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:

Our garden with our Cherry Trees in bloom! Come learn how to Grow Harvest Preserve with on at The Reid Homestead #cherrytrees #vegetablegarden #gardeningtips

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 tomato sauce from frozen tomatoes!

My tomato sauce canned from my tomatoes that I harvested last year and kept in the freezer until now!

Homesteader Entertainment Favorite:

My 5 Things Favorite entertainment thing this week has been watching the last Fixer Upper show. I didn’t get to watch it live, I had it DVR’d. and man, do I love that show! So sad that it is over! I just love Joanna Gaines design style, that rustic farmhouse style. I am all about that!

Personal Homesteader Life Favorite:

My 5 Things Favorite personal favorite is just having some down time this week. It is spring break for my youngest, and our schedule has been…well…pretty unscheduled! Which has been very nice. I just wish the weather would cooperate so I cold tackle some things on my April Homestead To Do List. It has been really wet and rainy! But next week it is supposed to start feeling like spring, so I can’t wait for that!

As Always, Thanks for Stopping By!

Happy Friday to you and yours and I hope you all have a great weekend! Please comment below and let me know of at least one thing you are thankful for on this Friday! And share what you have on the agenda this weekend! And please let me know if you have any homestead realted questions. I want to provide content that my readers find helpful, so it helps to get feedback from you all. I figure the 5 Things Friday is a good weekly place to get it. Have a great weekend!
