Summer time at The Hoskins' Homestead

Well it's the 3rd week of July already and thinking only 1 week left is kind of crazy but I love the month of August and knowing that my favorite season is just around the corner makes me smile!
This year was a year of firsts for us at the Homestead, 1st year for having bunnies in our family, 1st year for a garden, 1st year to try canning pickles and salsa, 1st year to have wheat in the field behind us and 1st year that I was able to grow flowers from seeds and have fresh cut flowers out of my garden for in the house!

Looking forward to expanding the garden next year since this year has been such a success & trying out more canning. Hoping next year we'll be able to expand our little domestic farm by adding some laying hens!!

Enjoy your summer with family & friends!!! Pretty soon the snow will be flying and we'll be dreaming of warm weather!

More Pictures from around the Homestead

I finished up taking my pictures of the yard. I have enjoyed this summer already because things are coming up so well and my yard has finally come to a finish. Now it's time to sit back & enjoy the hard work that my hubby & I have done around our home!

Thanks for stopping by!

It's been a long time........................

Well I never thought I would put my blog on the back burner but I have and I think its time to get back on the blogging bus & start sharing what I love to do! Things have been busy with life and the kids well they just keep growing.

We have added lots of new things to the yard plus changed things! If your a prim addict like me you'll understand that change is always occurring around our homes! I have discussed with my hubby that the flower beds are now complete in our yard and that there will be no more added. It's a lot of work for us and I usually spend May & June getting them all cleaned but it's what I love doing after a long cold snowy winter!

Today marks the first day of summer so with that I thought I would post some pictures from around our yard. I still have many more to take and will do that this week and add them at a later date (later not meaning 2 years from now!) but soon.

Enjoy your tour! There are many more to come!
