The Backyard Farming Connection Hop #41

This week the first green tomatoes popped out and the first cucumbers appeared.  As excited as we are here with our home, garden and animals, there is a lot happening in our personal lives: big moves, big changes.  In just over a month we will be uprooting our little homesteading and moving it 4 hours away.  I can't wait to share more with you over the coming months, but for now we are fully immersed in planning how exactly to move all these wonderful living things in our lives.

This week I am happy to feature two relatively new-to-me pages.  These are both great pages and I suggest you head over and poke around a bit.

From City Boy Hens, Canning Blueberry Jam


From Homestead Living, a recipe for Strawberry/Rhubarb preserves


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.



(I know, I know - it still doesn't work :( If the HTML for the buttons doesn't work, feel free to just save the photo and link it back to this page).

  4. Oh my, if you move now, you will miss out on all of your wonderful garden produce. I hope this move will be a permanent one since you have to start all over with a new garden and such. I shouldn't even mention such things because I am sure you have already thought about this and factored it in to the move. Whoever moves in your place is going to love all that you are leaving them. Wishing you the best with the new place, can't wait to hear all about it.

    I already follow City Boy Hens...love his blog!

    1. Oh I have thought of this - a lot. We knew this was a possibility, but I couldn't NOT plant a garden this year. I'll still get all the summer veggies (we're not moving until the end of August). I hope the new owners appreciate it too!

  5. Thanks for the link up - we shared several articles with our FB readers at homesteadlady.com.

    We're getting ready to move, too, and leave all we've built so I feel your exhaustion! It will all work out, though, which I'm sure you feel in your homesteading bones.

    Good luck!
