On Good Friday, we like to make Crown of Thorns Bread for our dinner to go along with our devotional. Here is the recipe our family enjoys.

Crown Of Thorns Bread

Posted on 1 CommentPosted in Grace Garden And Homestead, Holidays

Good Friday is coming.  Do you have a Good Friday meal or devotional?  Crown Of Thorns Bread would be the perfect compliment.  And if you do Resurrection Eggs, then these are a good lunch supplement to your crown or thorn egg day. Unlike the Resurrection Rolls I shared with you last week, these ones aren’t as sweet.  We purposefully use a humble recipe for Good Friday.  It’s more of a somber talk for us all.  I don’t want to mislead you–it’s a great recipe, just not as sweet as the rolls that we joyfully use to celebrate His resurrection.

This is a great series for new gardeners, or for existing gardeners that are looking to improve their growing and/or preserving. This one addresses how much to plant. Written by a farmer's wife and homesteader who encourages all to improve their self-sufficiency skills.

Garden Planning When You Aren’t Sure…

Posted on 11 CommentsPosted in Grace Garden And Homestead

It’s that time again Friends.  If you haven’t already planned your garden out for this spring, you’re starting to. Are you looking to do exactly the same thing that you did last year?  Or do you want to change it up? I’ve talked to several women this year who want to do something different, but just don’t know what to change. We’re all getting gardening magazines and seed catalogs like crazy right now. Which ones are better than others?  (Yes, it matters!)  It’s so tempting to order seeds out of a pretty pictured catalog, but are there also local stores that sell seeds?  Or did you harvest your own last year? Where do you start? To read the rest of this post and series, please go to Grace Garden And Homestead, where it has been moved to.
