The Backyard Farming Connection Hop #30

I'm so excited we've made it to the 30th week of the Backyard Farming Connection Hop!  This week before I share the featured posts, I want to invite you to link up to the Homestead Resource Guide.  These thematic link ups will appear permanently on my blog for people to reference (as well as over on The Adventure Bite).  If you haven't had a chance to scroll through the topics, take a look at some of the great posts, and make sure you come back and link up your new and archived posts.

Other Homesteading Skills (if it doesn't fit elsewhere!)

Growing Vegetables



Recipes & Preservation

Brambles (Blackberries, Raspberries, Marionberries)
Gooseberries and Currants
Pome Fruit Trees (Apples and Pears)
Stone Fruit Trees (Apricots, Cherries, Peaches, Plums, Nectarines)
Exotic Fruits (Kiwi, Mango, Passionfruit, Etc)

This week's features are all about growing, using a preserving herbs.

From A Life Unprocessed, Using, Harvesting and Preserving Chives

From Our Neck of the Woods, Drying Herbs from the Garden

And from Summers Acres, Transplanting Mint

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.

For details on linking up visit the hop page.

Please be patient - I seem to be having come technical difficulties with my buttons (still)
