The Backyard Farming Connection #17

As we get ready to turn over the calendar into February, it's finally warming up a little here, and spring is that much closer.  Take a few minutes to link up and read some of the wonderful posts shared here each week. 

Here are a few favorites...

From Rural Living Today, here are 20 tips for Getting Ahead When You're Waiting

And from Everything Home with Carol, I love the idea of making Meals in a Jar!  Perfect for those busy days around here.

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.

  4. Hi Gretchen!
    I'm glad to hear it is warming up a little where you are. It is here too, but soon to be followed by a very cold front, sigh. Taking advantage of the warm weather while it is here!

    I shared a cheese recipe that is super easy, and a muffin recipe that is very yummy, some homesteading scenes from around our place, and memories of my Gram's bread bowl. Thanks so much for hosting!

  5. Hey Gretchen, thanks again for hosting! I linked up my post about our rooster trying to help a hen lay her first egg after coming off her molt :) Glad to hear it's warming up in your neck of the woods.
