The Backyard Farming Connection Hop #46

We are slowly settling in to our new home - I always underestimate how long it takes to move.  Making the move with 3 little ones and a bunch of animals doesn't make it easier.  There has been a lot of heavy lifting, some escaped goats, plenty of helpers, and one bee sting.  I can't wait to share more about or new place in the coming weeks. 

Here are this week's features!

From The Self-Sufficient HomeAcre: How to Store Your Home Canned Goods

From Making Our Sustainable Life: Flash Freeze Green Beans

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.

(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. thanks for featuring my post, Gretchen!

  2. Do you know anyone in the Maryland area that could take two hens? My HOA has given me 30 days to remove our two hens. I had planned on fighting this tooth and nail but the last three days we have lost 2 girls and almost lost a 3rd to a dog today. I love these chickens and cant stand the thought of them being hurt anymore. I would go on craigslist but fear someone will just eat them, ideally another backyard chicken keeper would be my first choice. We live in Harford county, if you know of anyone looking please send them my way. One hen is missing a lot of feathers from her ordeal today, but she escaped with her life thank goodness. The other just has a few ruffled back feathers.
