Backyard Farming Connection Hop #14

Wow - it's been a long time since we've met here for a hop.  I hope everyone's New Years is off to a wonderful start.

If you're at all like me, a New Year means new farming goals, and I am already brimming with anticipation of all the things I hope to do outside and here on the blog.  I am so thankful for all of you who come by each week and join in the hop, and am inspired by all the things you do in your own homestead.

There were some great posts in December.  Here are a few of my favorite from our last hop...

From The Redeemed Garden, this post on Garden Tool Maintenance is sure to get you off to a great start this season. 

If you are looking for a little micro-farm inspiration, this story is full of tips and ideas.

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.


  1. Thank you for picking "Tool Maintenance" as one of your favorites. I hope everyone will enjoy this weeks as well.

  5. Hi there, I tried to put the hop button on my blog but it doesn't seem to want to work, will try again later. Love your blog and the silly antics your goats get into!

  6. Thanks for hosting, Gretchen. It's so good to be back into the swing of things.
