Updates and Summer Workshop Series 2022!!!

I am REALLY excited about this year's summer workshop series, because I've found a way to make it more accessible. So because of parking limitations, and consideration for my neighbors has in the past limited the number of in-person classes/workshops I can do at one time, in addition to me having a boatload of little … Continue reading Updates and Summer Workshop Series 2022!!!

Adventures in RSS: How to follow us at shaggymaplehomestead.com

I am by no means tech savvy. In highschool, I took a couple intro to business classes and online graphics design and marketing classes and was decent at it.

Disappointment on the Homestead

Well, today was a bust. Not only was it rainy and dreary, but no one came to our workshop today. Which is just as well because my daughter ran a fever (likely due to seasonal allergies) and wasn't feeling well. And the garden needed the rain, so I guess all is not totally lost.
