Independence Days Challenge



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


Now, you’re probably wondering, “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, Kat and I will pick a post from the previous week’s link-up to feature.

This week I’m featuring a post from the blog Random Thoughts in my Head and her post on making homemade tomato sauce. I love making homemade tomato sauce so her post really hit home for me. 

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:
Peas!     


Harvest Something:
Eggplant, eggs and cucumbers – same as last week!     

Preserve Something:
Nothing this week.         

Waste Not:
Taking our, already rotting, pumpkins and giving them to the chickens.  They were thrilled!                  

Eat the Food:
Eggplant and eggs!  Yum!        
Build Community Food Systems:
Giving eggplant to a neighborhood friend.    
Skill up: 
Not this week.       

Organize: 
Not this week.
