Mostly Homemade Mondays - Week 76

Good morning! I had an awesome weekend. Of course, I spent a considerable amount of time tending to my seedlings. You might recall that this is my first year starting my own seeds for my garden. So far, I am having some decent success, but I'm not remaining too optimistic.

Also, I spent some time in the farm store grabbing organic feed, bedding, grit and oyster shell for my chickens. They'll be making their debut in our backyard in a few weeks. If you haven't checked out our coop, read PART 1 of the reveal.

On the blog this week I'll share the final reveal of our 100% repurposed-materials chicken coop, as well as a bunch of photos of another Eastern Iowa chicken coop and run. I also have a book review and giveaway, as well as a product review and giveaway coming later in the week.

With so much happening at The Sustainable Couple, this week is one that you'll want to be tuning in!

Anyway, on to the party:

Mostly Homemade Mondays is a series for people that are on a journey to better living, via healthier eating and a more natural lifestyle. We realize that there are different paths that we all take to get to that place, and this bloghop celebrates that. Whether you’re a seasoned raw foodist who has banned all things unnatural, or a rookie who is starting out by cutting out junk food, we’d love to hear from you! Link up with your favorite recipes, projects, crafts, or rants and raves.

The Hosts:

Jess from Scratch Mommy
Joyce from The Skinny Pear

Here was our favorite post from last week: 

A special thanks to Glass Slipper Restorations for linking up her rainwater catch system to Mostly Homemade Mondays! We have a fleet of rain barrels here on our city homestead, and know the value of collecting rain water. Especially when you pay for water in town!
