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.

I’m so excited to be taking over the @californiafarmsandranches
instagram this weekend! If you want to learn more about our ranch, you can follow along there! Ill be sharing some of the history, and details, and all of the things that make this beautiful life so special. ♥️🐂
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.😖 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?
We are all out enjoying this ridiculously beautiful day! You can see here our garlic is poking up, and the girls are so happy looking for worms. ❤️
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 “hedge” one day. Grow babies grow!
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! . .

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! 💦
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... ⠀
And now; a beer! Happy Saturday!⠀

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

Summer gave us a single buckling today. 🙂 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. 👍🏻
Looks like we may have a spring soon? First beautiful messenger of gorgeous season! What new Herbs the Nature will blow my way this year?
The expansion continues...
