Back in 2013 RancherMan suggested I begin writing about our lives here on our Homestead. So we started a website and I started writing. I love sharing about our lives and glimpses into our days!
I began doing a feature at the end of each year where I share the top 10 posts that resonated with you the most, whether recipes, simple living or projects we’ve done.
I thought it would be fun to share a recap of what you readers have deemed all the most popular posts by year. You can see each year’s top 10 homesteading posts right here in one place!
Click the title bar for each year below to see the complete list of top 10 homesteading posts for that year.
Ready to recap? Here we go!
Mason Jar Cheesecakes made in an Instant Pot, where we found the Best Raised Bed, a comprehensive list of ways to Be Prepared For The Storm, our favorite homemade Grape Jelly Recipe that uses no added pectin, and many MORE!
