Welcome to our “Home is Where the Heart is” Link it up party!

We haven’t had time to post this week because we’ve been so busy harvesting, canning, freezing, getting ready for this homeschool year, plus work has kept me busy working away on the computer! Not complaining…at all. It’s great to be busy!

We want to thank all our visitors and those who continue to link up at the “Home is Where the Heart is” Link Party! We love having this blog and we enjoy all our visitors! This week like every week we are excited to share with you our wonderful Top 11!

    Hi! Thanks for hosting! This week I've posted 4 recipes for pickling your zucchini, tomatoes and other garden surplus. I've also linked up a post about why I'm boycotting Kashi, Silk, Cascadian Farms, Larabars and other natural bars, and why you should too!

    Have an abundant week!
