#blessings #ilovemylife .  #homesteading is hard.  But looking for the #beauty is what it's all about.  #redraspberries  are back!

Excuse me while I get excited about these big peppers from my garden. 😁😁

Just an hour's work before breakfast to upgrad my Chainsaws' home. Easier to clean, slide around the saws and generally more finished. Recycled tin I found lying around on the property bent and cut to shape. I'm beginning to like this metal stuff....

Many hands working together on a raised bed at the Nthn Beaches Women's Shelter. We worked hard to build a soil mix full of nutrients, capable of holding just enough moisture but allowing water to drain freely. Laying the foundations for abundance in the future with happy hearts, memories of childhood gardens and a little bit of hope for good things to come 🌻🌻🌻

You've heard of guard animals like maremmas and alpacas right? Well check out this guard cat! She's great, except she sleeps most of the time and eats mice instead of foxes. 🐱🐔🐔🐔

It's nice to have good friends. A friend and I dug 25+ holes and split all my big logs. I love the fact two people can trade each others time and never worry about money, that's how the world should be.  #diggingupholes #woodsplitting #homesteading #myassisdragging

This is Bannie. She is the best momma. We had to put three regular eggs under her when she got broody. We don't have a rooster her size - she is more like a pet at our homestead.

Update on my weird ducks, making a splash! They are getting pretty big and will make excellent Christmas dinners. #ducks #growyourownfood #homesteading
Before & after. Local shop was giving away flats of veg that had some pests and left to die. 10 days later with proper care, I put almost 5 flats of broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower in the ground.

The Olandsk Dwarf chicken. ✨🐔 Hailing from the island of Öland in Sweden, this itty bitty landrace breed is a true dwarf, having no full sized counterparts like the bantam varieties. When I was born in 1989, only 54 of these birds were known to be living! Today, a perfect pair of Olandsk Dwarf chickens graces our flock and they are without a doubt the cutest couple - Johnny and June. We’re going to have the sweetest babies. 😍

As a little #tbt treat, I’ll show baby and current pictures of two birds each week. This week is Henrietta and Briar. I love them, but I would be lying if I didn’t say they were my two bitchest hens. They’ve had an attitude since day one. Henrietta actually had a fairly rough start, so I understand. I picked her out of a cage where they other birds were pecking her to death and brought her home. She had a lot of open wounds and was scared to death. But she’s come a long way! 🖤As for Briar. Briar has always had it good. Briar is just.. Like That. 🙄🤷🏻‍♀️

Last night I had our wood cook stove going while canning vegetables from our garden for the winter , and I decided to use the oven to  bake a scrumptious pie since I had a hot fire . So I made an Apple blackberry honey pie with a sourdough crust ! My hubby thought I was baking it for him BUT I was actually baking it for our chickens !  I have to admit our chickens are a bit spoiled and they LOVE pie!! We may lIve the simple life offgrid but our plants and animals always come first ! Tonight we will feast on a quiche made with organic free range ( no roosters )  eggs with kale , garlic and wild mushrooms . My hubby still wishes he had a piece of the pie 😂😂😂😂 But the quiche is going to taste amazing and I’ll bake him a pie while  baking a pie for our goats ! 🌸💕 The secret to living off grid and homesteading is :; happy animals , happy plants , happy wife happy life and lots of organic pie !! 😂 😊❤️🍁 #selfsufficient #organic #homesteading #naturalliving #chickens #hens #primitiveliving #pie #chickenlove #prepper #vermontlife #organic #holistic #vermontbyvermonters #organiclife  #rhodeislandreds

Had a really good week at work and get a 3 day weekend! So, I went out and celebrated with some fall veggies! 
Got six packs of stir fry broccoli, curly kale, Brussels sprouts, and red mustard. I also picked up a lemon balm and spearmint for the herb garden to replace the fennel and bee balm. Got some walla walla onion sets and a cute new house plant bc my cats haven’t eaten the one I brought home last month! 
The 2 main plots in the garden are looking pretty bare rn but we’ve been getting a ton of rain and lot of the seeds I threw in there are starting to pop up! I’m seeing some greens, radishes, and carrots. I also forgot about those seeds and did some rows of carrots, turnips, beans, and winter squash last night so we will see how that pops up lol at least the mustard greens and marigold I planted from seed are going strong!
Overall I’m digging all the green in the yard rn. My poor house is looking super rough bc branches are constantly bombarding me and my poor chickens. You can kinda see in the back where we patched the chicken coop. 
Times are definitely getting a lil rough over here but things are still cute and for that I am happy lol

Today was a bit slower than the last couple, and I never made it into the forge shop. I did get a small cabinet in the house painted, and put up tools from all of yesterday's shenanigans with the sawmill. I'm excited to get to forge something besides hooks and nails tomorrow...

As some of you may know the “soil” at our place is mostly of the sand variety. This summer was spent prepping the garden with compost and manure.  Soon we will getting in a shipment of black earth from a local source.

During our fall plow we decided the extend the garden. It finally gave us perspective of how much we’ve changed the soil composition already! We know we have a long way to go but, we are happy with the progress we’ve made so far. .

There’s nothing prettier than white grape juice ❤️ For years and years my grandpa has canned all his grapes into grape juice, and this year my mom and I are helping! These grapes have been on their property for decades and each year the whole family looks forward to tasting this delicious juice! Switching to the purple grapes soon!

Moringa is the fastest growing tree I’ve ever seen. I planted the seeds on April 1st and today they 13’8” tall. I also cut them off at 10’ last month and that seemed to make them grow faster.

Its so true, I talk to my animals. And if I am really honest it usually sounds like I assume like I know what they are saying 🤷🏼‍♀️ 💖🐓 . I tell myself, I can't be the only one right🤔? . . . #animals  #truth  #crazychickenlady  #canthelpmyself  #animallover  #imnotcrazy  #chickens  #hen  #rooster  #roosters #chickensofig  #chickensofinstagram  #backyardchickens  #hens  #freerange  #theupcycledfamily  #homesteading  #homestead  #homesteadlife  #homesteady  #homesteadinglife  #homesteads  #homesteaders  #homesteadliving  #hobbyfarm  #pocket_farms  #farmlife  #fresheggs 
Have you made an insect hotel for your garden? Here’s some great inspiration from the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. In some ways I think they are a bit silly, like, my entire garden is an insect hotel. On the other hand, if you have a small garden you might not have all these insect environments naturally. Plus, it’s a great learning tool for kids and you can make them so they look like cool outdoor art.
.
I think we may make one as a homeschool experiment. If you’ve had any successes or failures with them let me know!

Pesto pasta night 😋 Our homegrown: Italian Genovese basil, lemon basil, and garlic (our last clove!!). Local chicken... and surprise, surprise... a little side of fresh asparagus from the garden this morning!

This one took me back a few years. Twenty years ago, I got my first paying job, working on campus at the university cafeteria. I rotated around various parts of the cafeteria - dishroom, kitchen cleanup, meal prep, server, and cook. When I cooked, I had the pesto bar. We did pesto pasta, pesto wraps, pesto chicken... you get the idea 😅 I used to come back to the dorm so many nights smelling like garlic 😂😂😂 Good times!

These are the kinds of looks they give other kids when they try to "educate" our kids on farm animals. 😂 These farm kids always act like they own the joint. 😍

Two years ago we prayed.  We prayed for mulch, for a connection in the local area.  A few weeks later, we hired a tree service to remove some damaged + diseased trees from the land.  After talking with Gabe, the owner, my husband discovered a connection. His last name sparked familiarity.  It was quickly unveiled that the man standing in front of him, was the brother to my husband’s childhood friend.  The friend, Bo, who lost his life to a drowning accident in a local lake. And since Gabe was born after his brother’s death, my husband was then invited to share unknown details of Bo’s life. *

Friends, our King is faithful, active + alive!  Our prayer was answered, in such a beautiful and profound way, where we now receive truckloads of “gold” from trees near and far.  Mountains of rich, aromatic, steaming organic matter, brought right to the farm. *

Every Thursday, we give thanks.  We take time to say it, write it, breathe it.  It’s not always a natural reaction, but something that must be cultivated, from the inside out. *

How about you?  What are you thankful for?  How have your prayers been answered in surprising ways? * * *
