Our Farm: Planting Raspberries and Blackberries

Raspberries

Raspberries require a well-drained location with full sun.  If planted in a row, as I did, they should be planted 3 to 4 apart.  The rows should be 6 to 8 feet apart.  I planted mine in two rows that lead back to the grape arbor.  The rows are actually much farther than 8 feet apart because of the visual effect that I wanted.

When planting raspberries the holes need to be of sufficient depth and width so that the roots will not be crowded.  Because our soil has a high amount of clay, I added peat moss and compost to the holes as I planted the raspberries.

There are two different types of raspberries; those that produce in the summer and those that are considered ever-bearing and produce both in the summer and in the fall.  I chose to plant three different varieties of these ever-bearing or primocane raspberries. Continue reading

Wholesome Family Entertainment for Your Family

These days it can be so hard to find wholesome family entertainment.  If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you might remember me talking about RightNow Media and how much our family enjoys it.

One of the great benefits of a Molly Green or SchoolhouseTeachers.com membership is that a RightNow Media subscription is included with both of them.

Here’s some really exciting news: one of the extras in the Ultimate Bundle is a Molly Green Membership (regularly $29).

That’s right, for the cost of a yearly Molly Green subscription you can get 93 hand-picked eBooks, eCourses, and printables, on topics such as:

  • organization, routines & creating a cozy home
  • recipes, grocery shopping and meal planning
  • budgeting and saving money
  • motherhood (no matter what age your kids are)
  • cultivating a strong marriage
  • faith (for you & your kids)
  • and even self-care (like exercise, weight loss, life planning and coloring books!)
  • and much more…

You have a full year to download the eBooks and printables and take the online eCourses, and everything you’ve downloaded becomes part of your permanent library, so you can go back to it whenever you need it.

Plus, it comes with these FREE bonus offers. Some are 100% free; other are yours for the cost of shipping only. You’ll get:

  • FREE Mrs. Meyer’s Dish Soap, Mrs. Meyer’s Multi Surface Spray, Grove Collaborative Spray Bottle, Grove Collaborative Scrubber Sponges and FREE 60-day VIP trial with FREE shipping from Grove Collaborative ($30 value)
  • FREE Online Class from Craftsy ($29.99-$69.99 value)
  • FREE Kids Discovery Box from GreenKidCrafts.com ($19.95 value)
  • $15 Gift Certificate to InkWELL Press ($15 value)
  • $15 Credit to Hope Ink Shop PLUS Two FREE 8×10 Art Prints with Any Purchase ($71)
  • FREE SPOT Treatment for Acne & Eczema OR a $15 Gift Certificate from Bloom Naturals ($15 value)
  • FREE 90-Day Pro Membership to ListPlanIt.com ($30)
  • FREE 1-Year MollyGreen.com Membership ($29 value)\\\\
  • FREE Hand Massage Routine Videos from Melt Couples Massage ($24 value)

It’s available for just 6 days – from now until Monday, May 2nd, 2016 at 11:59pm EST. That’s why the Ultimate Bundles team can offer so much, because they only have permission to sell it for such a short period of time.

The total value is an astonishing $1000+ (plus over $300 in bonuses), but you get it for just $29.97. That’s 97% off what it would cost to buy everything individually!

I am so excited to share these great bundle with you!

 

Blessings,

Jennifer

Are You Ready to Join Me in Getting Organized?

If you’re anything like me, I bet you wish your home felt more put together and peaceful, you kept up with housework better, you were more consistent about serving healthy, homemade meals and you weren’t running ragged so much of the time.  Surely, I am not the only one who struggles in these areas!

Our job is so important, and we really want to do it right.  But so often, we end up feeling discouraged and even like we’re failing.  

That is is why I am so excited to share The Ultimate Homemaking Bundle with you!  I am already making progress with how I organize our records by following the suggestions given by Hilary Erikson in her ebook Family Systems: How to Automate Your Housewife Life.  This is just one of the many ebooks that are included in this bundle.

The Ultimate Homemaking Bundle includes 93 hand-picked eBooks, eCourses, and printables, on topics that matter to moms such as:

  • organization, routines & creating a cozy home
  • recipes, grocery shopping and meal planning
  • budgeting and saving money
  • motherhood (no matter what age your kids are)
  • cultivating a strong marriage
  • faith (for you & your kids)
  • and even self-care (like exercise, weight loss, life planning and coloring books!)
  • and much more…
