It’s hard to believe, but the mid-month of summer is almost behind us. Part of me hates to see it go. It’s been such a wonderful summer so far. But, with a new month comes new adventures! And it also brings us one step closer to autumn, my very favorite season.
Today is the last day to sign up for the Midsouth Homesteading Conference and Festival at the early-bird price. We have a wonderful line up of speakers and classes for the conference (see image below). I will also be teaching a couple of classes on soap making and keeping goats. The festival is also coming together nicely, and we have several vendors already. I am most excited about the kid zone I am planning, however. There will be pony rides, fun games, a straw bale maze, face painting, a seed-planting station, and a few surprises! I love seeing children involved with agriculture. Check out the event website for more information or to snag your last chance at cheaper conference tickets (the festival is free with $3 parking).

and it takes about 5-6 tanks to fully irrigate. Pumpkins can DRINK.
