Welcome back to 5 Things Friday 4/20/18! 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:

Newly transplanted tomato seedlings placed in greenhouse in April. Part of my Seed Starting 101 Guide and learning about all the equipment needed to successfully start your own seed indoors.

This week, my 5 Things Friday favorite gardening thing is finally having time to up pot all my tomatoes and peppers! Starting later today, my weekend is almost clear, and it is time to get these babies into their forever pots! Hoping to move them all into the greenhouse next week. See my previous posts about how to grow peppers and/or tomatoes by seed.

Homestead Critters Favorite:

This week, my 5 Things Friday favorite critter thing is that we are starting to collect eggs for hatching! Our breeding pens have been set up for a little bit more than a month now and I am so excited to get our first hatch going this year. We will be collecting eggs from our Blue Ameraucana pen, our Blue Laced Red Wyandotte Pen and also some of our Blue, Black & Splash Marans pen. We will follow that with another hatch with Olive Eggers. After trying out several incubators, this is our favorite one by far Genesis Hovabator 1588. I highly recommend it if you are just starting out with hatching your own eggs. We like it so much, we actually have two of them! So excited for fluffy little baby chicks again. 🙂

Homestead Kitchen Favorite:

My 5 Things Favorite Kitchen item thing this week was this new recipe I made yesterday for White Chicken Chili. We hosted our HOA meeting last night and fed a large group dinner, and this got many compliments and recipe requests! The only thing I did differently was I did not add the whipping cream at the end, adding the sour cream was enough. And I cooked the chicken breasts in the crockpot the day before, but probably wouldn’t do that again as my family prefers chunks of chicken instead of shreds of chicken, so I would do like the recipe says and just fry up the cubed chicken in a fry pan.

Homesteader Entertainment Favorite:

My 5 Things Favorite entertainment thing this week was going to see a Jean-Michel Jarre concert with my hubby!  and the concert was excellent! I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, as my husband is a huge fan. But he put on a great show, the light and laser show was almost as awesome as the music!

Personal Homesteader Life Favorite:

My 5 Things Favorite personal favorite was going on a date with my hubby. We saw the concert mentioned above, and had some wonderful sushi at Sansei Seattle next door to the theatre. It was an awesome spur of the moment date that we decided we need to do more often.

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.
