Backyard Farming Connection Hop #3


The color is fading from the gardens, although there are still little bursts if you look for it.  We are slowly clearing some of the beds and covering others with straw in anticipation of cooler temperatures.  We had visions of cover crops, but it may just be a fresh layer of compost this year. The herb garden is still strong, and we are enjoying the fresh herbs in the autumn hearty soups coming out of the kitchen.  I am still looking for recipes to use the large quantity of healthy looking lemon grass.

I'm actually looking forward to the first frost when I'll harvest the brussel sprouts and sweet potatoes.  For now we're enjoying winter squash, peas, turnips, a few last tomatoes, lettuce, spinach, and hopefully some leeks very soon.


Now it's time to see what you've all been up to this week here and at the Backyard Farming Connection.  Please link up your own journeys, advice, reflections, recipes, how to's, or anything farming, homesteading, gardening, related - and don't forget to grab a button in the footer or visit the Backyard Farming Connection page!

You can also join my brand new Facebook page: The Backyard Farming Connection, where I'll share my favorite posts from the week!  Check it out to see if I featured you this week.

  3. I’m sharing the recipes I am made last week. There is an apple sauce using just apples. I plan to use it as baby food as well as adult food. http://foyupdate.blogspot.com/2012/10/sugar-free-apple-sauce-is-easy-and.html

    Also a recipe for Vegetarian Tempeh Indian Curry. This is in no way authentic, just a couple different recipes I mixed together inspired by friends. It’s perfect for these cool autumn days. http://foyupdate.blogspot.com/2010/02/vegetarian-tempeh-curry-indian-recipe.html

  6. I love your nasturtiums! Mine haven't done well for the last few years and I think it's because I have them in too much direct sun. I will try them in a shadier location next year. Thanks for hosting the blog hop! Blessings from livininthegreen.blogspot.com

  7. Your gardens look great. We have put most of ours to bed already for the winter, still eating kale, Swiss chard and herbs.

  8. Love the peek into your backyard! Cedar for those raised beds? I've linked up with an awesome ground cherry cake recipe and a separate link for bug ID help. Thanks for hosting!
