King Abraham: We needed to move Abraham to new pasture. Along the way to the new area he was distracted by grass along the fence. Eating the vegetation along fence lines is his job so I could not complain to much. The funny part was no mater what we did he would not leave the fence till he had eaten everything. He took his own sweet time getting to the new area. All we could to was helplessly wait on king Abraham. #homestead #homesteadlife #homesteading #suburbanhomestead #sheep #fence #king #grass #waiting

I have always wanted a garden, but not just because I wanted to grow all my own food. A garden holds secrets, stories, and lessons. A garden is a place of miracles. A garden provides an opportunity to practice hope. Sure, there are many challenges, pests, and failures, as well, but these things also speak to something. I have wanted a garden so that I could learn to listen. 🌱 . Today, through trillions of tiny drops of dew, I saw that refreshment comes in the night. In that time of quiet, and rest, it is refreshed. It grows, and continues to produce fruit. I am thankful for the refreshment that comes through rest, both in an outward and an inward sense. ✨

Monotropa uniflora, also known as ghost pipe (or ghost plant), Indian pipe or corpse plant, is a Saprophyte. Which is a plant that doesn’t use chlorophyll. Instead it lives off the dead matter (or the life force) on the forest floor. These astonishing plants are responsible for communicating information between the mushrooms and trees. Essentially they’re the control center of the forest...much like the nervous system is to the body. That makes this plant perfect for calming our nervous systems and slowing information down. .... Last night the neighbors dogs were over trying to catch our chickens for dinner. As my dogs and I frantically chased them off I looked down and was shocked to find a little patch of ghost pipe...and then another one and another! I instantly knew what a special gift this was. Ghost pipe only grows in very specific environments. It can’t be transplanted or cultivated. And it is here growing on this itty bitty (1 acre) part of the earth that I get to look after. Grateful! .... This plant is a magical plant. I had a profound, mystical experience in the woods a few weeks back while I was trail running. The experience was so bizarre, I’m still trying to wrap my head around. But it ended with me finding a patch of ghost pipe. No way that was a coincidence! Someday I’ll share the story. .... ... .. . #ghostpipe #ghostplant #corpseplant #saprophyte #plantmagic #plantmedicine #plantbased #panic #panicattack #anxiety #healer #heal #holistichealth #forager #forage #wildcraft #gatherer #herb #herbalist #herbalism #tinyfarm #foodforest #suburbanhomestead #homestead #permaculture #chickens #veganswithchickens #germanshepherds #germanshepherd

Another beautiful evening in the garden with my babies. I'm so grateful. The kitchen counters are overflowing with exponentially more of each of these things(minus that line strawberry) from the garden hauls like this several days this week already, so I'll be up late tonight blanching and freezing green beans, stewing, straining, and canning πŸ…, and slicing, pickling, and canning jalapenos, but it's so worth it. This garden isn't what we had planned- not even close. But it's producing an abundance of what DID survive the insane spring weather, and I'm grateful to have grown it all with nothing but pennies worth of seeds and sweat. #gardeningistherapy #backtoedengarden #organicgardening #gardenhaul #homesteading #ieatlocalbecauseigrow #ieatlocalbecauseican #suburbanhomestead #minihomestead #garden #homesteadersofyoutube #homesteadersofinstagram #homesteadersofamerica

My two little cherry (tomato) pickers. πŸ‘§πŸ»πŸ‘¦πŸ½ I had intended to spend all morning tending to our little #suburbanhomestead, but the mosquitos had other plans for me. As soon as I sat down to nurse the baby and take a little break, I already had two on my arm! It’s been such a struggle this year with the mosquitos. We don’t live near water but I get swarmed every time I walk outside! Thankfully, the kids are safe and there just seems to be something about me the mosquitos can’t resist.

Paper pulp mulch. I soaked my unglossy paper over night -- bills, newspaper, packing slips. Then blended them up and poured the pulp in the yard. It's a workaround for not having a shredder or compost pile. Plus this way, it's less likely for unsightly scraps to blow around the yard once it dries. That's important in the 'burbs. FYI: Unglossy paper these days is usually printed with nontoxic, biodegradable soy ink. #permaculture #gardening #recycling #mulch #paperrecycling #urbanhomestead #urbanfarm #suburbanhomestead #compost #composting

Does anyone know what these are, and how to tell when they're ready to harvest? I composted quite a few different types of squash and gourds last fall. I'm wondering if this is a cross between some, since I didn't have any that looked like this? πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ #suburbanhomestead #gardenkeeper #urbanfarm #urbangarden #lovewatchingthingsgrow #didntmeantoplantthis #coloradogarden #coloradoharvest #harvest #microfarm #falliscoming

Taking care of Tiny’s pasty butt. Aka: when poop gets stuck on their tail feather lol... due to baby chick fuzz, sometimes it doesn’t come clean. Apparently I did a good job... she started to fall asleep in my hand. So, lately I’ve been asked what’s my obsession with chickens. Well, first I had them as a kid... around 55 baby chicks delivered at one time. I remember it feeling like such a magical moment as a kid! Surrounded by baby chicks?! Second, I love animals, and grew up in the country. As much as I still want that, it’s not in the cards just yet. So my β€œSuburban Homestead” will have to do. 3rd they are hilarious! My mental health just shot up by 100 points just from getting my chicks- lol. And Finally, farm fresh eggs. I know exactly what they are consuming... I love cooking/baking and having THE freshest eggs is going to be a major plus. Even Martin said to me last night...”I’ve never been around chickens... they are SOo cool!” Enough said. πŸ˜‚πŸ’œ#suburbanhomestead #farmfresheggs #babychicks #love #iam1stphorm

Decided to collect the wax moth larvae that @gapey was discarding from a few beehive frames that had been in storage for awhile. They are aren't cool when it comes to bees but the chickens sure do appreciate them. #beehive #beehives #waxmoth #beebox #beeboxes #bee #bees #beekeeping #backyardbees #backyardbeekeeping #honeybees #savethebees #homesteading #homesteadlife #urbanfarm #suburbanhomestead #diycentral #diy

I have been waiting for flowers in my garden all season! Today there was finally enough of a variety blooming to create a small bouquet! 🌻🌼🌱 . I love using recycled glass bottles as vases, and we recently finished a jar of honey that had a cute honeycomb pattern on the sides. Definitely a keeper! . Lemon oil is perfect for removing sticky things, especially the residue left on glass after a label is peeled off. Nature's Goo-gone! πŸŒ±πŸ’§βœ¨

I had to try this @foragerproject cashewgurt when I found it on the shelf at Safeway. I added honey and some fresh picked blackberries from my backyard. It was pretty much the perfect mid-morning snack and actually an incredible dairy free yogurt. This is coming from someone who usually hates yogurt in all its forms. πŸ˜‚πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ #foragerproject #suburbanhomestead #workathomemom

I've been working in the kitchen today, catching up on some homesteady things. I posted a live 3-part video today on making yogurt on my other page @kj.paint inspired by a conversation I was having with a mama-friend about healthy fats and gut-lovin foods. Check it out! πŸ‘† . I went out to the garden in search of dinner and the kale is finally looking πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘ŒπŸ‘Œ Honestly, I thought my first year doing a Back to Eden garden would not be very productive since it takes a while for the woodchips to break down. When everyone else's gardens were looking amazing, my plants were still puny and struggling. A few applications of fish emulsion, blood meal, and additional compost gave my garden the boost it needed, and I am amazed at how full and lush and productive it has become.🌱🌼😍 . I guess it is true that good things take time ❀❀❀

Maeve inherited a couple of bunnies from her friend last year and now they are breeding like..well..bunnies! The girls brought this little fella inside today after their daily visit out to the run. He is less than a day old. We had a discussion about how it's important to leave the babies alone, so we don't leave our scent on them (this increases the risk that the mama bunny will eat them). We tucked him back in the nest his mama has built and we will hope for the best.🐰🐰🐰❀❀❀

Although we are no longer strictly on the GAPs diet, we still incorporate many of the basics daily: healthy fats, omega 3's, fermented foods, and lots of veggies. Fruits tend to be our snacks or desserts. 😁 . This is our first year growing a larger amount of our own produce. When I do purchase, I concentrate on organic, pasture-raised meats, organic grains (these tortillas are from a local Mennonite bakery with very few simple ingredients), raw cheese, and *some* organic veggies. Every year, the Environmental Working Group (EWG) comes out with a list called the "Clean 15 and Dirty Dozen"- super helpful if you are interested in which fruits and veggies are best to purchase organic, and which are fine to purchase conventional.πŸŽπŸ“πŸŒ± . Yes food is more expensive this way, but for us, it was worth it to avoid GMOs and chemical residues from pesticides, fungicides, ripening agents, etc. There is a saying that goes like this "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure". Since these toxic chemicals do not wash off of the food, that means we are eating all that stuff!!! Making this decision to lower the toxic load going into our bodies, enabled our bodies to focus all its energy on assimilating nutrients and healing, which was so important!✨ . We also began to regularly purchase food from farmers markets. It is awesome to support small family farms, eat with the seasons, and make friends with our farmers. There is nothing in this world like a fresh tomato in the summertime, farm eggs, meat raised well, and beautiful friendships! πŸŒ±β˜€πŸ‚β„

Small garden harvest before we leave to go camping. πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸŒΎ β€’ Unfortunately I haven’t been able to tend to our garden this spring/summer like I would have liked so I doubt we’ll get many veggies this year. A successful pregnancy obviously has been my main focus. Next year I’ll have the adventure of figuring out how to tend a garden while baby wearing. 😊 Does anyone have any tips for homesteading with an infant? Products I should add to my registry?
