HomeAcre Hop #90

Welcome to the HomeAcre Hop this week!

I hope you are enjoying Autumn. I know that I am trying to make the most of it. This week I have been foraging for plants for the dye pot. I have wanted to try my hand at dyeing wool with Natural Dyes for quite some time.  I will let you know how it all turns out.

Would love to hear what you have all been up to! I hope you take a  minute and share your blog post with us.

  1. I have some pokeberry out back. They make a nice dye. I've used red onion peel too. And black walnut.

  2. Oh good luck on the dyeing that would be interesting. If you lived closer I could give you lots of Black Walnuts. Hug B

    1. We have some walnut trees in the woods, when I went back the squirrels had left slim pickings...
      There is one more area we are going to look today :) I guess the squirrels will need them when it gets cold, so I can't hold it against them :)

  3. Oh my that will be fun. I was fortunate to join in a dye day last summer. Don't think it was held this year.
    There is always so much to learn.
    PS I did do a post if you want to see:

    1. I look forward to reading about your dye day!
      Thanks for posting the link!


Thank you for stopping by the farm!
