Just planted the beetroots between the woodchips. Now we don't have to do anything more. Zojuist de bieten gepoot tussen de houtsnippers. Nu hoeven we er niets meer aan te doen. πŸ‘β˜€πŸ˜πŸŒΌ #seedling #grow #beetroot #spring

Gunner and I are off to run some errands, aka get Justin food for while I’m out of town all week! I just found out yesterday that I head out on a prescribed fire burn team Monday, which means spring is officially here! 😍πŸ”₯ Time to clean the house and pack up all my things, this girl has some fire to play with! This year I’m training to run an engine too, so it should be extra fun. I LOVE getting to do habitat work using prescribed fire, it truly can transform the landscape. Did I mention how badass my FTJ is? 😎🌲🌳πŸ”₯ . . . . . . . . . #teammorethanyouseek #furmommy #beaglemom #labmom #huntingdogs #farmher #outdoorswoman #outdoorgirl #outdoorsy #exploreoften #findyourhappy #sheadventures #girlgetoutside #herwanderfullife #furchildren #drivenbypassion #whatdrivesyou #effyourbodystandards #embracethesquish #healthateverysize #donutsanddeadlifts #coffeejunkie #caffeinequeen #homegrownfood #willrunforbeer #homesteading #smallfarm
My weekend project. Any guesses? #rehobothacres #farmtotable #homesteading
My greenhouse is cooler than yours. Seriously. Shade cloth. Added some 40% shade cloth to try and extend my lettuce growing season. In south Louisiana it get HOT. Since its only 10ft wide, and I probably should have went with 15ft, I shifted it to cover the West side more. (greenhouse runs North South) I'm thinking its better to shade in the evenings when its hotter outside. Do you think that's the right thinking? #journeytolyfe42 #homestead #homesteading #lettuce #greensproduction #salanova #greenhouse #cool #hot #shade #shadecloth

The new soil sifter tool is working overtime as we seem to have an infestation of these nasty ugly grubs in our raised beds. They are gross looking.πŸ˜– We have nineteen raised beds where we grow our vegetables and these nasties are from only two of them. I wish I still had my chickens because this would be a banquet for them. Oh well, the crows seem happy to gobble them up. Has anyone else come across these in their garden?

This is my old gal, Brownie! She came to our farm at 2.5 years old and I don't believe she ever had enough human contact. She is very skittish and we've never been able to catch her...until today! My little chicken wrangler, Owen, caught her. Man, is he good at it! I made him snap this photo as proof πŸ˜‚! And you know what...after a little protest, she started to close her eyes and relax. See...farmer cuddles ain't all that bad, girl! πŸ” . . . . . #chickensofinstagram #chicken #backyardchickens #freerangechickens #farmher #farmlife #farmgirl #womenwhofarm #chickensnuggles #homesteading #homesteadlife #homesteadliving #homesteadingwithchildren
Just a friendly reminder from one mama to another ❀️
: our baby Sugar cane from @bakercreekseeds came in yesterday and we planted them today. We are hoping these four little babies will create a neat β€œhedge” one day. Grow babies grow!
Finally got the Cornish rocks on grass! #growyourownfood #homegrownchicken #homesteading
I know this doesn’t look like much, but I’m super excited about this!! We are finally going to test out our rotational grazing system in our poultry run!! Last year our birds were too young to scratch up the paddocks. This year we have bare ground though!! So I just broadcast buckwheat & clover seeds in this paddock & then covered the ground with a thin layer of hay. And I’ve watered it so I’m hoping with the turn in weather things will start sprouting & giving our birds some fresh greens! This is our hope for when they have to be in the run for the day instead of roaming the farm! . . . . #smallscale #rotationalgrazing #backyardpoultry #solutions #healthybirds #smallfarms #homesteading #homesteadsofinstagram #permaculture

Garden therapy....ahhh so happy! πŸ‘©β€πŸŒΎ My peppers needed this and so did the tomatoes...getting a bit leggy. I will have to bring them back inside next few nights.

looking forward to watching the sun rise over the mountain from our beautiful new patio 🌻 and thanks to our dam down below the terrace we are still holding up water in April, that is a huge achievement for us! πŸ’¦

Normally I would not milk a sheep with twins so soon but I noticed one side of Blackberrys udder wasn’t getting drained of milk .. she has a HUGE udder of milk and is just producing more than the twins can drink, her udder looks more like an East Friesian dairy sheep. What an amazing sheep she is ... a leader sheep , great fleece, good mom and a good Milker! #dairysheep #farmer #icelandicsheep #sheepmilk
Had to change the door seal on my Miele washing machine. Definitely not a job for chickens... β € And now; a beer! Happy Saturday!β € β € β € β € #DIY #homesteading #maker
It’s been too cold to move the chickens outside and our area we want to put them isn’t quite ready. So....we improvise and give them a little β€œfield trip” outside under the trampoline for a few hours. Hopefully we can move them outside soon! . . . #michiganhomestead #homesteading #homesteadlife #raisingchickens #chickencoop #trampoline

We’ve spent all morning working in the gardens transplanting fruits and vegetables, tilling the soil, working in compost, and harvesting a few strawberries.

Looks like Isla is a bit of a natural Forager.

Hanging out at the Conservation Garden Park for the Urban Homestead Expo, when I realized I locked my keys in my car. 😫 Yep that happened again πŸ˜† So very grateful that my husband is so wonderful to bring me the spare key! And at if I had to lock myself out, at least it was at a beautiful location with a whole lot of plants to look at and explore! #brightside #keyslockedincar #storyofmylife #besthusbandever #grateful #nature #conservationgardenpark #urbanhomesteadexpo #homesteading #urbangarden #gardenlove #gardenlife
If it looks like spring, and it feels like spring, than it MUST be spring! This time for real! I just finished a wedding album design meeting and have the whole place to myself. Day drinks and tomato transplanting is on the menu with a side of Pink Floyd. Tell me how you’re enjoying this spring day! #basil #springvibes 🌸 #agedterracotta #herbgarden
7 chicks in the brooder. Three more eggs were zipping but I don't think they will make it. Not a great hatch rate. Not sure if I will try another hatch or just order some chicks later in the season. :/ #chicks #brooder #hatchingchicks #chickens #homestead #homesteading #homesteader

Finally got the bees up and situated in their new home. We decided to get a nucleus rather than just a package of bees. A nucleus colony or β€˜nuc’ contains a queen, workers, brood in all stages and honey stores. A package will have a queen and workers. A nuc is more expensive than packaged bees but gives a jump on productivity as the hive is already established. So far, they are doing what bees do. I’m hopeful that they flourish. #beekeeping #cumberlandcountybeekeepers #honeybees #pollinators #gardens #vegetables #fruittrees #nuttrees #homestead #homesteading #homesteadlife #honey #beehive #farm #farmhouse #easttennessee
Help needed! I’m just curious if anyone knows what breeds my sweet Rosie (1) and Poppy (2) are. I bought them from a local feed store and they said they were #ameracauna but they don’t look even look like they share similar characteristics with each other. They are so super sweet and seem to pick up on things fast than my other chicks. I don’t want to say I have favorites but if I did, they’d top the list. πŸ˜‰ Thanks in advance! . . . #chickenbread #chickenhelp #chickbread #henstagram #featheredfriends #crazychickenlady #crazychickenmomma #chickensofinstagram #chicksofinstagram #tractorsupply #microfarm #urbanhomestead #backyardchicken #backyardchickens #backyardpoultrymag #backyardpoultry #pullet #eastereggers #easteregger #homesteading #hobbyfarm #chickenlady #farmher

Summer gave us a single buckling today. πŸ™‚ He's a cutie! Too bad he wasn't a doe. If anyone needs a wether, I'll have a couple of extra (this little guy and Mattie's, and any bucks Sandy and Calypso have). I don't really advertise wethers, so shoot me a message if you're interested. πŸ‘πŸ»
