Eat Make Grow Blog Hop - The End For Now

This is it!  The end of the Eat Make Grow Blog Hop.   All three of us have enjoyed discovering new blogs, recipes, ideas and tips and we hope you have to; but it is time to part ways. For now.

Miranda's bought a farm in the last year and her Fiber Friends are keeping her quite busy, Marigold is writing for Spoonful and expanding her blog empire with an Etsy shop and the blog series Summer of No Pants and I'm working part time at a public garden and a local farm so basically life got in the way.  We felt we couldn't give the Eat Make Grow Blog Hop all the love and attention it needed.  To all of you who have hopped and linked up: thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Eat Make Grow has been a Blog Hop where you share what you have been eating with your family, growing in your garden or making with all your creative impulses. A collective link party, it was shared across three blogs and ran every first Thursday and goes for 20 days.

We leave you now as summer is hitting its stride and many activities present themselves out in the sunshine. We all hope you'll continue to visit our blogs and comment with links to your own posts or with your fantastic tips and ideas: we write to share and learn, not just banter and teach.Thank you for being a part of our online community.

I'm sorry to see this hop go, but the farming, arting life is certainly keeping me busy these days! I'm finally putting in my very first garden-let - after the spring rains seem to have abandoned us, unfortunately. This summer will be an interesting learning experience as i figure out how to irrigate with a low producing well and no rain barrel. (i think the purchase of a rain tank may have to be moved up the priority list).

My flocks and herds have been expanding and i'm enjoying the miracles and trials of life while i watch my rabbits attempt to give birth in 85 degree heat, 3 new ducks establish themselves among a bunch of grouchy hens, and many swallows finding their home in my eaves.

I hope you all have a wonderful summer and will come back and visit soon! We had some great entries for last month's "picnic" theme, just in time for summer picnics. Enjoy!

The most clicked post was:

Our very own Foy's delicious looking Panamanian Potato Salad. I love how pink and festive it looks! I just want to slather it all over a freshly grilled pork chop and eat it on a hand quilted picnic blanket.

My personal favorite post would also be delicious with a grilled pork chop, especially if it is slathered all over a freshly GRILLED piece of corn. Thanks to Rae Gun Ramblings for submitted this decadent Garlic/Basil butter.

And our group favorite is quite fitting for this final post. Wholesome and delicious hamburger and hot dog buns from My Humble Kitchen are perfect for stuffing with burgers, pulled pork, coleslaw or tomatoes. Buns are like book ends, they hold it all together and put the finishing touch on the perfect meal.

  1. Hi, Foy!
    I'm sorry you are ending, but totally understand those things. I would like to invite you to be a regular part of the link-up at Deep Roots o9n Wednesdays. I leave it up for 6 days, and it is heavily visited, so there is good exposure for many, but even that takes time. the community is wonderful, too, but it takes time. I have found that commenting back to those who do comment to you will usually build up a mutual encouragement. what you post about is so helpful: recipes, gardening, healthy living...pretty much what we do! Have an amazing weekend :)
