What’s New on Dandelion Hill?

    Each Thursday I share three goodies. Most are homesteading related, but some are just funny or cute or life-giving. Enjoy!

    1 – A New Bush

    Our bunny barn is half underground so the roof is low and in head-bumping range. So I just bought a cinquefoil bush (also known as potentilla) to plant under the most dangerous corner. It’s supposed to be able to handle temperatures down to -40° F (I sincerely hope we never get that cold) so it should do well here. It has lovely yellow flowers each summer.

    This is what my little bush will look like when it’s all grown up.

    2 – Plan Ahead!

    The Farm Wife has a lovely article on planning ahead when it comes to canning your garden harvest. So smart. So helpful.

    3 – Got Sticks?

    I’m always looking for cute ways to create garden markers that aren’t too expensive or labor-intensive. These require a wood-burning tool (though you could use a permanent brown marker) and slices of sticks (bought or made). They have a nice rustic look.

    Have a great day! Lori ❤️
