Lotus Garden Newsletter for Homesteaders. 23rd June 2021

Life is hard, however you live it, but is nice to be able to choose your hard. This week we feature a couple of posts from a couple of continents which give us a peek into the daily life of homesteading and farming. What would be your preferred kind of hard?

Things happening in the community.

My timing always seems to be atrocious as various challenges are wrapping up in the communities. Many of them are ongoing, though, so keep an eye on what's pinned in the @naturalmedicine community and check the @ecotrain blog for the next challenges as they come.

Some highlights of the week




@flemingfarm blogs about life as a homesteader in the US, giving us an idea of the daily ins and outs of life on a homestead. There's always something to be done and often things you didn't bargain for, but that's all a part of homestead life.

Then over on the African continent, @buckaroobaby takes us on a humorous walk through daily life on a South African farm. Road blocks are caused by all manner of things there.

If you're wondering about replacing cling film with something more sustainable, then perhaps consider making your own wax food wraps. @karelia shows us a simple method that doesn't require an oven.

As usual, @sreypov brings us a recipe that incorporates a huge variety of wholesome ingredients, with her bean curd skin and cucumber salad. I can almost taste the flavours from the images!
