The Backyard Farming Connection Hop #93

We've been lucky this year with high germination rates, healthy plants, good harvests and relatively few bug and predator problems.  Suddenly this week we've been finding more evidence of uninvited guests sharing in the bounty.  One of the biggest problems in the Japanese beetles.  To help with this we've added a trio of Muscovy ducklings to the homestead - stay tuned for some amazingly cute photos!!

This week's feature from Lady Lee's Home: 7 Crops you can Plant in the Middle of the Summer

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.
