Favorites from This Week’s Carnivals

July 30th, 2009 · No Comments

My Small Homestead was included in several carnivals this week.  I have found that carnivals are not only a great way for other people to discover my blog but also a wonderful way to find other blogs that interest me.  So this week, I decided to share some of my favorites.

The first post that caught my eye at The Homesteading Carnival was Grandma’s Fried Tomatoes.  I haven’t had fried tomatoes in ages but I think I might try some tonight.  They might have to be Fried Green Tomatoes as I don’t think my tomatoes are EVER going to get ripe.

Also at The Homesteading Carnival another post caught my eye, Home Life Weekly has a post on Types Of Mulch.  It is an interesting look at the different types of mulches available.

My favorite at the Make It From Scratch carnival was this delicious looking Sausage Spinach Pasta Toss.  These are making me HUNGRY.  Try making it with fresh garden spinach and garden tomatoes.  YUM!

I also had to take a peek at these Crocheted Baby Thongs.  I was imagining a baby in a thong diaper but these are really cute.

We also had an article in A Gardening Carnival.  You can learn how Home (Garden) Economics works with How Gardens Save You Money.

Raised Bed Gardening has an article on how to garden if you don’t have a yard.  If you live in an apartment or townhouse you might want to check out one of these two articles Going To Pot With Container Gardening and 12 Vegetables You Can Grow In A Pot.

The Money Hacks Carnival always has great tips for saving, investing and making money.  This week’s carnival was no different and here are my own favorites.

From I Need More Allowance:  A Teen’s Summer Guide To Getting More Money comes 23 Ways To Make Money.  I wish that more teens were as enterprising as this one is.

5 Personal Finance Lessons We Should All Relearn from the Present Financial Crisis is right on the money.  I wished I had learned them the first time around.

By gosh, I think that is all for the week.  I hope you enjoy browsing the carnivals and picking out your own favorites.
