Farming is the theme of this week’s Carnival of Homeschooling, hosted by Petticoat Government.

. . .  my parents had us children grow a garden and raise chickens. One year we even raised a steer in our backyard for a while. He was rather bad-tempered (I wonder if he understood our nickname for him, “Dinner”) . . . 

There are lots of homeschoolers who farm and blog, including
The Family Homestead, This Blessed Life at Rootsong FarmHmmmschooling Mom, The Nerdy Farm Wife, the Countrified Hicks and more. The Pioneer Woman looks at how to balance homeschooling with farm life.

The Carnival of Homeschooling is up at mom SCHOOL. It includes an April Fool’s Day poem: 

April the first stands mark’d by custom’s rules,
A day for being, and for making fools: —
But, pray, what custom, or what rule supplies
A day for making, or for being — wise?

-- Rev. Samuel Bishop, 1796

Tomfoolery in early spring goes back to antiquity, writes Jamie Gaddy. The Romans celebrated Hilaria at the end of March. The Jewish festival of Purim includes “costumes, carnivals and pranks.”
