Lotus Garden Newsletter for Homesteaders. 28th October 2020

Is it just me, or has it been quiet on the homesteading front? Except maybe for the lovely @goldenoakfarm who's had a tough run of late, but helpers have volunteered in this time of crisis for her family. Her quick, regular updates give a real insight into the reality of homestead life.


Things happening in the community.

Don't forget that October is mental health awareness month. @naturalmedicine now have a @hivebuzz badge that can be earned by shining a light on mental health.


Also in support of mental health awareness is @ecotrain with this week's question of the week being about shining a light on mental health issues.


Some highlights of the week

Converting a garden or land to growing food isn't a quick and easy project, especially in a busy life. @wholeself-in is building a food forest in Florida one island at a time, to make the conversion more manageable. This article is packed with ideas.


On the homestead nothing goes to waste and @sustainablyyours has been preserving the green tomatoes before the cold weather takes them out.


@plantstoplanks is cooking and this time it's lion's mane mushrooms. However, it's more than just a post about that, it's a discussion on how we cook things that can make or break a love of a certain for and either expand our experiences or reduce them.


The ever practical @homestead-guru offers 3 summer maintenance tips for the homestead.


Each week one of our featured authors will be selected to be a 5% beneficiary of The Lotus Garden newsletter. This week @plantstoplanks will receive this award.

Thank you for stopping by. This week's newsletter was brought to you by @minismallholding.
