Welcome to What Do You Know Wednesdays! As you know, we are still learning how to be farmers (we’ve actually known how to be charming for quite some time). We truly enjoy sharing our experiences (the good, the bad, and the hilarious) here with our Charming Readers. Our motto has become, That’s how you learn. We’ve learned by jumping right in and seeing what works, what fails, and what just makes for a great story. And since the point of Charming Farming is to build a community of women who farm – in big ways or small – we would like to hear from you too. What has worked for you? What hasn’t?
Each week (okay let’s say most weeks) we will post a question or problem that we face with farming or one submitted by one of our Charming Readers. We are hoping to get input from other Charming Farmers so that we together we can grow healthier, happier farms and families.
This isn’t a linkup per se, although we hope you will post a link to your blog. But you don’t have to have a blog to contribute. Just share your insights in the comments (with a link to your blog if you have one). And do please share What Do You Know Wednesdays on your blog, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, or anywhere else Charming Farmers are gathering.
This week we’d like to talk about spring cleaning. For the longest time it is seemed like spring would never come. Now all of the sudden the days are longer, the grass is greener, and baby animals are popping out everywhere. It’s definitely time to shake off the winter funk and get things in order for the warmer days ahead. What tips do you have for spring cleaning?
- What are your favorite natural cleaners for the barn or the home?
- Do you have a spring cleaning schedule or just get to it as you can?
- What is your favorite spring cleaning chore to finish?
- What other chores do you do to get your farm and home ready for spring?
Neither of us really love cleaning (although Jill is better about it than me), but even we get inspired this time of year. We can’t wait to hear what inspirational and helpful ideas you have to share.
