I'd just like to take this time to thank the 1000's of visitors that we get here at The New Century Homesteader blog. It has been a busy spring and summer already with writing, meeting deadlines, getting berries picked, cleaning out, looking for sponsors, etc.

Please keep dropping in. There will be new posts, new little projects, some FYI's and other random farm, garden and food thoughts!

Berry Time!

The wild berries ripening are all over 1840's Farm. I'm getting these ready for the freezer. I like to spread them out on a cookie sheet first and let them freeze a bit, just so they don't freeze into a giant berry block. Then I'll bag them for pie making later on when I have the time.

Getting a Small Garden Ready

Sometimes you only have time to put in something small. But they can still have a bit of character.  I love the little old mini barn at the 1840's Farm. My mom actually used to keep her horse in it when she was a kid.
