The Backyard Farming Connection Hop #60

Today is the 60th edition of the Hop here at the Backyard Farming Connection.  Sixty weeks of sharing information and first hand knowledge with other homesteaders.  Thank you to all of you who stop by each week to read and share!

This week's features are about using some of the lesser known plants, specifically Elderberry and Wintergreen

 From Homespun Seasonal Living: Making Medicinal Elderberry Syrup

From One Acre Farm: Wintergreen: How to Harvest it and Make an Alcohol Extract

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.
