Got a lot of blackberries? Then check out this recipe for Blackberry Mojito Fruit Leather.

I'm not a huge fan of fruit leathers, but this turned out super good! And, really, you can't go wrong with blackberries, mint and rum.

Urban homesteading giveaway week!

Welcome to all my new readers! I'm happy to have you visiting my little virtual homestead on the intertubes.

To begin, I have an announcement. Last month this blog reached 2 million page views after going live almost four years ago. I can't believe that many people have stopped by (granted, many of them were looking for "goat porn") and I'm pleased to have a new crop of readers as well.

Starting tomorrow, in honor of preserving the freedom of urban homesteading, I'll be doing reviews and giveaways of a number of books and few something-somethings related to urban homesteading. (And, no, it won't be live chickens.)

Stay tuned for the fun and action!

Well you've really arrived although I thought you did that with the television show.

It is good to having you guiding all of our fledgling urban homesteaders down the path to freedom from commercial interests.

Darn there's no goat porn here?

Green Bean said...

Congratulations!! I'll be back tomorrow to see what you are giving away - interested as long as it is not the goat porn!

But I specifically subscribed for goat porn and live chickens. Well, poo.

Great!

Even though this post is sadly lacking in porn, goat or otherwise, it made me smile. Congrats on being a 2 millionaire!

Jenn said...

Congrats! Awesome news! I think I am up to 20 page views on my blog, in 4 years. :)

Karen Driscoll said...

Hey, you can't say "goat porn" I've trademarked that! You have to say goat porn TM an initiative of the overblown ego institute.

Wow- congratulations!!

Sounds like a fun week. I'll be back!

Chile said...

Way to go, Crunchikins! I am disappointed about the lack of chicken give-aways, though. Just yesterday, my sweetie and I talked about where we could maybe fit in a couple of chickens in the yard.

I think it's really cool you're going to be doing a give away.. it'll "get information out there" to people might not be able to otherwise get it!

Grats on 2 million! That's awesome. I've been following you for a few months now and you deserve a bit pat on the back!

Laura Kaeding said...

Congrats, that is a huge accomplishment! Looking forward to the reviews to come, they are always extremely helpful and informative.

Also, goat porn? Still? You'd think the search engines would have realized... ah well.

Fr. Peter Doodes said...

As someone who has been following you before Bush was even a small shrub; well done!

2 million, WOW. Now, if we all contributed $1 each........

Hippy Goodwife said...

I think you should reconsider the goat porn. Might be a nice side biz for you.
