Welcome to the Independence Days Challenge!  We hope you have brought some great posts to share with all of us this week.

What is the Independence Days Challenge?  Simply put, it’s a way for each of us to share the ways that we are building our independence inside our homes and on our land.  This is all about building community, skills and growing more self-sufficient!  We are here to teach and to learn.

Feel free to share your homesteading, gardening, homemaking, cooking, organizing, and/or skill-building posts via the link-up tool below.  Make sure you link back to one of the hosting blogs in some way and check out our other participants when you get a moment.  

Each week Heather and I will pick a post from the previous week’s link-up to feature.

This week I’m featuring a post from Little Homestead in Boise.  She linked up her own Independence Days Challenge last week and I loved it.  Check it out!  I love the graphic she made, too!

Thanks to everyone who linked up.  It is always tough to choose just one to feature. 

And without further ado, here’s what we’ve been up to on our homestead: 

Plant Something:
Still nada.  Soon though, I hope. 

Harvest Something:
Not a thing (other than eggs, which we’re getting 4-6 of a day!).  It is HOT here people.       

Preserve Something:

Waste Not:
Cleaning out closets and donating to Goodwill.  Giving outgrown kids’ clothes to friends and family        

Eat the Food:
Eating pickles from the garden and tomato sauce that I made from garden tomatoes.  Enjoying an average of 4-6 eggs a day.  Made zucchini muffins from the last of the ones we harvested from the garden.  
Build Community Food Systems:
Gave some sourdough starter to a friend and then ate the english muffins that she made with them the next day. :)    

Skill up: 
Not this week.     

Working on the closets.
