In this episode of the Small Scale Life Podcast, I discuss a Happy Mother’s Day Weekend with a full house and a lot of great Community Building. Last week was pretty busy (hence no posts or podcast). Instead, there was a lot of family and community building last week, plus plenty of gardening (and some gardening disasters). It’s another action-packed episode of the Small Scale Life Podcast!
