The Backyard Farming Connection Hop #27

It's been a busy week here (without internet!), and we've got some of our seeds planted, a straw bale garden built, and some new animal housing planned.  We're seeing and hearing spring everywhere we look, and looking forward to more growth and green every week.

It takes an observant person to capture a beautiful moment in a photo, it takes an exceptional person to capture beautiful moments in the everyday.  Take a moment and appreciate the everyday in these wonderful photos from Dancing Aspen Farm Blog.

If you're planting older or saved seeds this year, Learning and Yearning shares how to test Seed Viability.

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 'featured button' so if you've been featured in the past, grab a button.

  7. Thanks for hosting, Gretchen. I should have tested the viability of my seeds this year. But I was impatient and I'm now paying the price! Hopefully, I've learned my lesson.

    Have a great week.
