The Backyard Farming Connection Hop #76

 OH MY GOODNESS!  This was one of those spring is here/let's garden/time to clean out all the animal bedding/we got a llama weeks!  After months of planning and indoor projects, this week we jumped into spring with both feet.  Already our daily routine is quickly being turned upside down as we head out in the morning and rush back in to throw dinner together at the end of the day!

Probably the most exciting thing was that on Sunday we added an adorable 2 year old gelded male guard llama to our homestead.  Cocoa made his appearance, and already seems at home out in the pasture.  Before I get into this week's features, let me share just one photo of our new buddy: 




This week's features:

From Homestead Lady: Goat Forage in Your Backyard


From Walking in High Cotton, Lambing Help Part 1: What does Normal Look Like?



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.

  1. How exciting, Gretchen! He's certainly a handsome addition. Is his job to protect the chickens?

    1. His job is to look handsome, give us a bit of fiber to play with, and guard the goats.

  2. Thanks for hosting this, Gretchen, as always. And congrats on the new addition!

  3. Dinner? You actually get dinner in with everything else going on? I'm impressed. There have been a lot of days recently where dinner simply doesn't happen here. Farm work until dark and then pass out until it's light enough for more farm work. Crazy, but it feels so good!

    1. Sometimes dinner doesn't look like dinner around here - it looks more like whatever we can throw together in 5 minutes!
