Soil Block Party

It seems that the theme of my blog (and life) lately has been about not being able to reach set goals on the homestead. There is so much that we want to do but there is just too little time!  We got a lot of chores done last weekend–some were a little later than usual but I think we just need to accept the fact that with almost four kids, certain deadlines are not possible.  We aren’t sitting around dwelling about our tardiness, rather learning from our experiences.  Being a homesteader is an art on its own and we are still learning!

Here is a picture summary of us finally using our soil blockers to make soil blocks, for our vegetable starts.  This is our first attempt and I really hope that we sprout something.  We made more starts than we need in hopes of having a plant-start sale soon, as a little fundraiser for our homestead.  The kids are stoked and to be honest, so are we.
