As we celebrate the Independence of our beloved country, let’s pause and remember:
It’s the Land of the Free
BECAUSE of The Brave!
A hearty Texas Homesteader “THANK YOU” goes out to all who have served our country, both past & present.
C’mon by & sit a spell! Come hang out at our Facebook Page. It’s like sitting in a front porch rocker with a glass of cold iced tea. There are lots of good folks sharing! And you can also follow along on Pinterest,Twitteror Instagram

I’ve had several bread machines over the years. The bread was tasty of course, but I always got rid of them. They were just so big, heavy & bulky. It just wasn’t worth it.
But during a recent visit with my dad, he mentioned that he wanted to get rid of his bread machine to clear the space on his counter top for another appliance. He said if I didn’t take it, he was tossing it in the trash.
I couldn’t stand the waste so I figured I’d take it home. If I found I still hated bread machines I’d make sure to get it to someone who could use it.
But bread machines are apparently different now and I find I really love it! I’ve even tweaked my own Oatmeal Sandwich Bread recipe to make a 2-lb bread-maker loaf.
Whelp, we made it to July, y’all! Now in NE Texas the rain taps will typically turn off about now and will stay off for the rest of the summer. So although we may get a little ole 1/4″ inch or so every now & then, we can count on manually irrigating the garden from our Rainwater Catchment Systems from here on out.
Let’s stroll through the garden and see how it’s doing, shall we?
Happy Birthday America! We realize that freedom isn’t free – It’s with the humblest of gratitude that we say THANK YOU to our brave men & women out there walkin’ the walk to keep our beloved country free.
