In celebration of the holidays and in an effort to fully invest myself in the magic of family, I will be absent from here for a bit and won't be hosting for the next 2 weeks. Please come back and link up again starting Jan 8th, and have a wonderful, safe holiday.
I am also always looking for people interested in being featured on my site as a homestead highlight. This is a great way to share your story and experiences and also mention your own site. Please email me or leave a comment if you're interested (gstuppycarlson @ gmail dot com).
There were some great posts last week. Here are a few of my favorites:
With peppermint candy everywhere, it was interesting to learn a little more about the herb behind this holiday tradition. Living in the Green has a wonderful post on Peppermint: An Essential Oil.
At this time of year, it's easy to reflect on things we can do to help others, Small Footprint Family has a wonderful and informative post: Can Organic Farming Feed the World?
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. And in case you haven't seen, I have a new 'featured button' so if you've been featured in the past, grab a button.
