Baking/cooking and not spending $

This weekend is a continuation of below freezing weather. I’m really missing those warm summer days and growing my own food! However, I have been enjoying making soup with the tomatoes that I preserved and eating my own pickles, catsup, garlic and green beans!…

Let’s show you the camper!

Two goals for the year all depend on us fixing up an old truck bed camper. We chose this camper because we don’t have to pay to have tags on it, we got a great deal on it, the three of us can fit…

2017 Goals Update!

Last year was my first year setting and blogging about my goals. It was amazing to run into people and they would ask me questions about how I was doing with them! They went pretty well and here were the results: https://littlellewellynhomestead.com/2016/12/31/2016-goal-recap/ This year we…

November goals update 2017

November brought the cold temperatures that reminded me that Winter is will be here to stay. It allowed me enough nice days to clean up the garden and chicken coop. So, without waiting, here are how the goals are going: 1. Zero waste our…

Thanksgiving break 2017!

Thanksgiving dinner was provided by my wonderful momma as always. We are beyond blessed to have her make our meal every year. (Especially considering she can’t really eat any of it. She’s a survivor of stage 4 oral cancer and eating is a struggle!)…

Seed saving, tiny harvests and a new anvil

This is the time of year to be working on saving some seeds, preserving the last of the produce and starting to dream about a new garden next year! I picked a bunch of cucamelon seeds out of a melon and then pulled the…

First frosts, harvests and a touch of Blacksmithing

It finally happened this week… our first frost. It wasn’t the hardest of frosts, but enough to make us realize that the season is slowly fading towards dreadful winter. But, happy thoughts for now… garden harvests tonight! I started with the gardens around the…

Getting craft show ready!

Autumn Glory is usually our biggest craft show in this area. I’ve been with my mom selling in years past, but this will be the first year that we finally use our Llewellyn Homestead name. Oh, and the first year for my husband to…

Blacksmithing up a storm!

The Mr has been forging his heart out lately! Just about everytime I walk into the garage, I can hear pounding and smell coal smoke. (Weirdly enough that sulpher smell reminds me of my childhood home.) After bending several, he attached them to some…

September goals update 2017

September was a month of colossal harvests, produce stands set up, still getting acquainted with my new students and working around our tiny homestead! Here are how the goals are going: 1. Zero waste our home! We have been eating a lot from the…

Mushroom growing, harvests, crafting and donating

This weekend was full of all the reasons why I put so much into this lifestyle that we are wanting to live. Remember the mushroom spawn that I spread in a raised bed back in early May? Well, the mushrooms have finally popped up…

Fair winnings and feeling like a fraud

Yes, you sure read that correctly. For a couple years in a row I have enjoyed entering our crafts and foods into the fair, but I just get this nagging voice in my head that screams that I’m not good enough. So let’s start…
