The Backyard Farming Connection Hop #34

For those of you who check in here often, you may have noticed we've been quite absent this week.  We've been away for a long weekend and it seems to take a few days before and after to get ourselves back into the normal homesteading mode.

This week the features are all about the wonderful, amazing compost!

First from Homegrown on the Hill: Composting 101


And from Homestead Lady, DIY Compost Tea Buckethttp://homesteadlady.com/diy-compost-tea-bucket/


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.

  6. Glad to see you back! Hope you had a good time over the long weekend. I linked up my post on my broody hen's chicks that just hatched. We got five chicks and they are all so cute! It's so fun to watch them interact with the mama hen.

  10. Just an FYI, the second link in your post (not down in the hop) from Homestead Lady, DIY Compost Tea Bucket isn't working.
