The Backyard Farming Connection Hop #43

With August underway, and the business of planting, tending, harvesting and all the other summertime household tasks taking up so much of our time, this week I am featuring two posts that talk about slowing down, taking time for yourself, and fighting burnout!

From Life Less Hurried, Be Still and Rest

And From the Self Sufficient HomeAcre, How to Deal With Homestead Burnout

For more great posts from around the homestead community, check out the links below (if you're reading this in an email, click on the post to see all the links).

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).


  1. Good Morning Gretchen! There are some great posts here this week! I love the kitchen garden #32 - it is both beautiful and productive. I added two this week - how to freeze fire roasted peppers and dehydrating tomatoes. I hope the rest of your week is wonderful!
