The Backyard Farming Connection #6

Welcome to the Backyard Farming Connection Hop.  This is the place to share your farming and homestead related posts.  Feel free to link up more than one post.  If this is your first time here, send me a note in the comments and I'll add you to my blogroll sidebar. If you haven't seen it yet - there is a new poll in the right sidebar - check it out!

Here are some great posts from this week's link up:

This recipe from The Hedge Combers for Cinnamon Dusted Dried Apple Rings looks amazing and a perfect thing to do with extra apples.


 If you've ever considered going off-grid, check out this post from Live Ready Now, and get a little inspiration.

One Year On the Off Grid Homestead!

 Rural Living Today has a great post this week with lots of resources for raising animals.

Now it's time to see what you're up to this week.

I want to know what's happening, in your garden, on your homestead, in the barnyard, and in the kitchen.  Whatever is in your backyard farm and home, I would love to hear about it.

Each week I will share some of my favorite posts in the newly formed Backyard Farming Connection Facebook page.  So grab a button, and link up what you've been up to, I can't wait to hear!
