This Week at Homegrown Self Reliance

I finally got my garden most of the way planted. The hubs fashioned a nice sprinkler system out of PVC pipes for me, that I think will work pretty well. The only thing I would change would be to have them be drip lines!

Our fox is still hanging around, but we moved the ducklings to their outdoor pen. It’s pretty well predator proof, and we didn’t have any predators when our big ducks were in there. And luckily we haven’t lost any more chickens!

And, we woke up the other day to 3 new litters of baby rabbits!

This last week, for the Self Reliant Skill of the Week, I made homemade mayonnaise for the very first time. You can read the post here:

My family loves bath bombs! I have finally found a recipe that works (yes, there were several attempts with some big failures). I'm ready to share this recipe with you - easy to personalize, great gift idea, and easy to make with most household items right in your home.
