The Backyard Farming Connection Hop #25

There were some truly fabulous posts this week, it was difficult to choose the features!  Thank you to everyone who stops by each week here and shares - I am constantly amazed at the wealth of knowledge and community here.

We're still waiting for spring here and are hoping the snow will melt this week.  I'm considering going on protest and putting all our winter hats and mitten away, but I'm worried that may just backfire.  I hope spring has come to your home - or is on the way soon.

If you have a giveaway going on this week, make sure you stop by and promote it via my Giveaway Saturday link up!

Here are 2 great posts from this week.

From Black Fox Homestead, learn about Creating Windbreaks

From Homestead Lady, Learn about growing Medicinal Herbs

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 on the 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. Hi Gretchen!
    I loved Jenny's post on windbreaks :) Now I need to read your other feature!

  2. Aww. Thank you for featuring our post! I'm glad you liked it. This week I'm sharing a canning recipe and a tutorial for a window valance. Thank you for hosting and have a great week.


  3. I've been in the barnyard hugging all my animals after reading about the Barn Fire. Makes my heart hurt. :-(
