The Backyard Farming Connection Hop #108

This week I want to wish you all a happy Thanksgiving!  We will be embracing family and traditions over the next week, so there will be no blog hop next Tuesday Dec 2nd.  For all you Americans, have a safe and healthy holiday.

The Backyard Farming Connection Hop #107

 The energy around here has switched from outside time and last minute fall chores, to time inside, baking, with short bursts outside to tend the animals.  It is a welcome change and there's even more time to read and think about future plans on the homestead.

The Backyard Farming Connection Hop #106

This month we still enjoying so many things out of the garden: kale and brussel sprouts that are still growing, as well as tomato paste, jellies, frozen veggies, potatoes, pumpkins, squash, syrup and a while assortment of other goodies.  After several years of working hard to garden, moving several times and a having 3 little ones around, we're finally moving closer to producing a larger amount of our own food and it is oh so rewarding.

THe Backyard Farming Connection Hop #105

Wow - this week it got cold!  My kids started asking if winter is here yet, and I guess in NH it is (or at least 'early' winter.  There is still a large never ending list of to-dos, but really cold weather is a good incentive to get things done outside.

The backyard Farming Connection #104

This weekend was animal care time around the homestead.  The goats hooves got trimmed, a lot of the animal gates and housing got repaired and a few more areas of the garden were put to bed for the winter.

The Backyard Farming Connection Hop #103

This week we hosted a fall barn party complete with a chili cookoff and some music and dancing.  It was the perfect way to wrap up the warm season, and it appropriately turned cold and windy the following day.  Now that our attention is turned away from hosting a gathering, we're getting on the with the 'before the snow flies' list around here (as well as some Halloween costume work).  There are so many things yet to be done, but already the pattern of our days are shifting from outside to inside.  It won't be long before those first snowflakes.
