The Backyard Farming Connection Hop #67

This week we are already starting to shift out of the planning mode of winter into the doing mode of spring. While we still have weeks (ok - months) until it is warm enough to plant outside, we've got the seeds starting materials together, lots of building projects getting organized, and have a brand new vermicompost bin set up in the house.

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.

  2. Hi Gretchen, I hope you guys are staying warm in this crazy cold weather! We've been starting seeds as our avg. last frost day is Saturday. We won't be planting until the first few weeks of March, just to be on the safe side. Thanks for hosting each week!

  3. Good morning Gretchen. Thank you for hosting this fun party! Have a wonderful day.

  4. I added a link to part 2 of a beginner gardening series we're working on over at Modern Vintage Housewives: how to figure out how big to make this garden thing, anyway! :-)

    Thanks for hosting!


  5. How exciting that my post 'Caring For Cast-Iron Cookware' is being featured this week. I have my grandmother's cast-iron skillet given to her when she married my grandfather in 1934. She gave it to me years ago & it's so precious to me & it only gets better with age! Love the hop, thanks for hosting!
