Growing my own happiness this weekend 💚 What do you think of my snake plant?? Isn’t he cute? His name is Harry and he won’t die. He’s unkillable which is exactly the kind of plant I need in my life. 🌱 Healthy things grow! I’ve been intentional about changing my mindset to a positive one and I’m noticing a huge difference in my overall confidence! 🌱 Having a growth mindset is one way I am trying to show love to myself #changeyourthoughts #changeyourlife #growthmindset #homegrownhappiness #leapintolove #snakeplant #watercolor #watercolour #princetonbrushes #archespaper #offeringsart #windsorandnewton

Pest problems in the garden? 🐛 A healthy garden with a well-rounded eco-system will be less vulnerable to an attack of bad bugs because a healthy garden has healthy plants, and an abundance of beneficial insects which provide free biological pest control and pollination. However sometimes an infestation hits! That's where these homemade sprays can come in handy.

I’ve been starting to see some spring flowers here on IG so when I spotted these beautiful white tulips in the grocery store I couldn’t resist. I’m hoping all my new daffodils that I planted last fall bloom like crazy this year but tulips I’ll have to buy. For some reason I don’t have much luck with tulips around here. Hope everyone has a wonderful Wednesday! . . . . . . . #eggsandblooms #cooptotable #farmfresh #farmfresheggs #farmfreshtoyou #countryfresh #eggenvy #hobbyfarm #hobbyfarming #hobbyfarmlife #farmher #country_stilllife #iamcountryside #countrylivingmag #countryliving #farmphotography #farmphotographydaily #pewter #backyardpoultrymag #backyardeggs #bitsofrusticcharm #countrysamplermagazine #farmhousekitchen #antiques_r_us #farmhousestylemagazine #homegrownhappiness

And there goes another one. Sweet little Honey has crossed the rainbow bridge 🌈 Today I cried. It’s looking like my recent problem of loosing my girls has been down to worms. Even though I’ve wormed them, it turns out they’re quite resilient little critters that have claimed 3 of my precious girls. When chickens show signs of illness, they usually go downhill fast. They suffer in silence until they can no longer hide it anymore and then it’s too late. I used Flubenvet, which is a pre medicated pellet. My lot don’t like it much and I think that’s what my problem was. They didn’t like it, so didn’t eat much of it for it to work. This has been a tough lesson for me to learn. How do you guys tackle worms? What do you use?

It’s now ‘Microgreens’ Week... Well, it’s going to be an eight week microgreen phase, actually. 🤣 [Day 1] Tray number one planted up for display at Silo Park for my next public workshop, and I’m hoping this will demonstrate the different germination rates for pea shoots, radish, sunflower shoots, rocket and wheatgrass. Just this tray on its own is enough greens to feed me for a few days! Ever wanted to have a go? I grow in shallow soil, and package up my seeds into little pill containers (see second photo) A hands on learning session with these seeds is just about identical to my seeds-raising mix workshop. Don’t buy the potting mix in a plastic bag — learn to make your own. Perfect for urban gardens & apartment dwellers. Next lot will go into my pretty indoor growing tray. Watch this space. What’s been your experience with microgreens? Are you a fan, or do you prefer ‘real’ vegetables? at Silo Park

Hey, is that a little photo bomber I see back there?😂 The girls and I thoroughly enjoyed the sunny but cold day yesterday. I tried to clean up a bit around the outside of the house and they laid five eggs. Sunny days like yesterday really do wonders for me!

Sourdough Pikelets // Breakfast Recipe This is a favourite breakfast at our place and a great way to use up excess sourdough starter. (If you're familiar with sourdough crumpets, this is the same but I fry them on both sides.) 1 cup sourdough starter pinch of salt 1 tsp maple syrup 1/2 tsp baking soda Mix all the ingredients together. Heat a saucepan on medium heat and fry spoonfuls at a time alongside a pat of butter. Cook for 2-3 minutes on one side before flipping and cooking 2-3 minutes on the other side. These are light as air and excellent served with berry chia jam! • • • • #pikelets #sourdough #sourdoughstarter #discardstarter #breakfast #healthy #snack #kids #yum #recipe #homegrownhappiness #nzblogger #nzblog #nzbloggers #blogger #blog #kiwiblog #kiwiblogger #kiwimum #kiwimumfollow #igersnz

That fresh mulch feeling. 😍 On Thursday I did a whole lot of pruning and clearing in my summer garden. I chop and drop, leaving the green waste on the ground. Then I laid a thick new layer of mulch (pea straw this time) over it all. The green waste will break down under the mulch and feed the soil, a bit like a giant compost pile! The mulch helps keep things damp and weed-free. For more info on my deep-mulching method, check the link in my bio. • • • • #gardener #nzgarden #nzgardener #growyourown #homegrown #gyo #urbangardener #urbangarden #organic #nodig #notill #deepmulch #homegrownhappiness #nzblogger #nzblog #nzbloggers #blogger #blog #kiwiblog #kiwiblogger #kiwimum #kiwimumfollow #igersnz

Peach, Lavender and Thyme Conserve // New Recipe 🍑 This delicious conserve used up all my windfall peaches.

What’s the significance of Borage? For me it embraces all the elements of my approach to gardening. The bees love it — and we simply have to plant more for the bees, and not just think about human food. Then, the chefs love it. A Borage flower or two adds visual appeal to almost any salad or in an ice cube turns a cold drink into a celebration. Then, as a companion plant it is pretty darned good in your compost. As are comfrey, stinging nettle, and all the plants used in Biodynamic compost preparations. Finally, it’s just a happy, peaceful flower, and self-seeds prolifically. The only drawback is it doesn’t like being moved, and therefore not a seedling I generally carry around with my mobile workshops. Best to dig up with a large clump of soil, and take directly to its new home, water it well for a week or two, and give it lots of TLC for that first generation. From then on, you ought to have blue borage flowers growing in number season by season. What’s your favourite companion plant? at New Zealand

I realized yesterday when I was introducing Pepper our Polish chicken who chases our cats, that I hadn’t shared anything about our farm kitties lately. 😻 Even though they are always hanging around — sometimes getting run off by little T-Rex 🦖 chickens — I forget to mention them because they seem to just be apart of the flock 😂. Paisley is our super sweet and gentle calico always looking for someone to rub her belly. .. . . #wildfeatherfarm #countryfresh #homegrownhappiness #iamcountryside #farmcat #farmcats #lifeonthefarm #catsofinstagram #cat #farmlife #backyardfarm #hobbyfarm #homestead #countrylife #calico #calicocat #kitty #catstagram at Liberty Hill, Texas

I was working on a new little duck house for our #cayuga ducks and #welshharlequin ducks which will be arriving later this month 🦆💚🦆 And I turned around to take a little break and the sunset greeted me with the most beautiful smile on its setting face...I couldn’t help but capture the moment. Lessons learned: Stop and smell the roses every once in a while, it’s good for your health and it’s just too plain beautiful not to stop and admire 😍 . . . #sunset #farmhouse #pasture #bluesky #Minifarm #MiniDonkeys #nubiangoats #Homegrownhappiness #FarmFresh #Chickens #CountryFresh #GrowYourOwnFood #FreshEggs #InstaFood #InstaGood #FarmToTable #FoodWineWomen #TheHomesteadLife #FoodPhotography #Foodstagram #WomenFarmers #FarmLife #LocalFoodForLife #InMyKitchen #OrganicGardening #FarmersMarket #honeyblumfarms at New Market, Tennessee

This crazy girl is Pepper 🖤 We became good friends a few months back when I found her listless in the coop and she seemed to be suffering from wry neck or something similar.. . . I got her this past spring as a chick, and we had never really officially bonded until she spend a handful of days with us inside while she recuperated. In my experience, chickens are just so fragile and you can not save them all, no matter how bad you try. Her neck was basically paralyzed, twisted and she couldn’t hold it up. I was so afraid we would lose her. 😔.. . .However this story has a happy ending, as she did fully recover and now is pretty much my biggest fan, and I am hers. “Did we just become best friends?” “Yup!” (Name that movie!😆).. . .She doesn’t like to be held, but she comes charging anytime I walk outside and always stays close by. She even chases the cats away I think in my honor. Pepper was never one I expected to adore so much, but sometimes, they just decide to surprise you. ☺️.. . . #wildfeatherfarm #countryfresh #homegrownhappiness #backyardchickens #farmlife #chickenphotography #chickdays #backyardpoultrymag #chickensofinstagram #iamcountryside #backyardflock #backyardpoultry #chooks #freerangechickens #chickenmathstrikesagain #crazychickenlady #smallfarm #farmphotography #fresheggsdaily #polishchicken #polishchickens #pastureraised #pasturedeggs #freerangechickens #freerange #farm #chickens #familyfarm at Liberty Hill, Texas

Passive toys are open-ended toys. By themselves, they do nothing. They become interesting and fun only when a child interacts with them. That is why they ignite the imagination! There is no right or wrong way to use them and this allows children to think out of the box, to make choices, to become flexible and motivated by their inner inspiration. Toys that have batteries and screens, ones that beep or light up, are usually limited and simply entertain the child as he/she just sits there and does very little. The child’s brain is not activated in the same way it is when it has to imagine, problem-solve, and pretend. There are no creative limitations with open-ended play, and that is why children stay engaged longer and love them best! So, if you’re looking for ideas, here is a list of some of the best toys for young children: Wooden blocks, magnet blocks, colorful builders like K’nex or Legos, boxes of all sizes, items from nature (think sticks, rocks, leaves...), kitchen utensils and dishes, pots and pans, pretend food, animal toys, dolls and figurines, barns or dollhouses, toy vehicles, scarves, dress up clothes, and any sensory items (such as kinetic sand, play dough, water beads...). #homegrownhappiness #magdagerber #respectfulparenting
