Soft cheese making workshop with @thecheesemakingworkshop Very tired and sleepy from a bellyfull of delicious cheese and food. Cheeses and other products we made include feta, Camembert, ricotta, yoghurt, labna, quark, and mascarpone. Started our morning with a cheese platter... Yum.. Morning tea was quark cheesecakes with chocolate ricotta mousse (yum) and sweet mascarpone. Lunch included a ricotta and spinach cannelloni (with ricotta we had made and spinach from Lyndall's garden), leek and cheese tart and cheese and herb pull apart bread. Ricotta is unbelievably easy to make and was beautiful with cinnamon and sugar. Labna was my favourite thing. Will be making that soon! A great day. #cheese #cheesemaking #coffsharbour #coffscoast #bananacoastlife #urbanfarming #homesteading

Tis the season! 6 new little chicks, all named after cars by my favorite 10 year old. We have Lamborghini, Ferrari, Mitsubishi, Audi, Porsche and of course Tesla. 4 Americana, one golden laced Wyandotte and one silver laced Wyandotte. ⁣ .▲. .▲. .▲. .▲. .▲. .▲. .▲..▲. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣⁣ #siddaleefarm #farmher #homesteading #ladyfarmer #hobbyfarm #chickens #thechickenworld #charmedfarm #hens #hensofinstagram #crazychickenlady #blackcoppermarans #rhodeislandreds #barredrock #backyardflock #silverlacedwyandotte #goldlacedwyandotte #americanachicken

A little buckling • Cherokee made it through surgery and was carrying FOUR kids! The vet said they weren’t tiny, so that could explain her pregnancy toxemia. Unfortunately three of them were too premature to survive and passed away. 💔 This guy is not out of the woods yet, and neither is mama, but for right now they are stable. Hopefully we can bring them both home tomorrow. 🖤🖤🖤 at UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine

One of our first chickens ever! We are currently renting, and have just added 4 Hyline pullets to our suburban backyard. This year we hope to buy a property where we can really start homesteading, but for now, we’re doing what we can with what we have, and that’s all it’s really about 😌 grateful we have such a good agency and house owner that allowed us to have chickens in the first place, along with two large dogs 🐶 🐶 🐔 #homesteadingtasmania #homesteading #homesteadinglife #suburbanhomestead #suburbanhomesteading #backyard #backyardchickens #chickens #chickensofinstagram #chickensofig #hylinebrown #eggs #farmfresheggs

Sweetest boy in the world. We went to our absolute favorite nursery and bought the last of their strawberry plants. And while I was in such a rush to get back home, (my mom was in the car not feeling well, and I wanted to get to the next nursery to get all the strawberries I needed) my son asked “MOM look at this HUGE stump! Come take a picture of me on it!” I actually started to say no and let’s go... when I snapped back to where I needed to be, took those few extra steps and made sure to make him feel special and have a moment. This should be what happens all the time, but truth serum... it doesn’t, I get so wrapped up in making thing happen, that when they happen it’s all over. As if the getting there is the point, not just part of the journey... well at least I managed to rock it today 🙌🏻😂🥰✨ #strugglesofamom #mamalife #mamastruggles #mamastrugglesarereal #gardening #gardener #homesteading #homesteader #superawesomefarmkids #wildchild #treestump #bonniesnursery #waco #wacotexas

Eeek look what we finished today!!! It took us about a week, help from both of the #superawesomefarmkids two different green houses, I bought both out of strawberries. We used mushroom compost, worms intended for fishing, and a little bit of patience. I’d do some things different next time, learned a few things, and will make a video on the next one I make. 💚🌱💚 🍓 #gardening #towergarden #55gl #strawberrygardening #strawberries #spring #homesteading #homesteadinglife #thisisus #thisislife #lifeisgood #pintrest at Twin Flame Acres

And then there was a roof! • Thanks to the help of s few good friends I’m feeling like we’re finally catching up. @tr.huggins and @spiritguidingadventures thanks for hanging out, driving screws and pounding nails. It was a real good time and made what was looking to be a lot of work a breeze. • We still have an evaporator to brick and a stovepipe to pop through that roof but it’s looking like we’ll be boiling early next week! • #hoaglundhomestead #sugarshack #maplesyrup #homesteading #buildingcoolstuffwithcooldudes at Schroeder, Minnesota

Calling on all garden lovers: come join us at our seed swap! Bring any seeds you're willing to share (because sharing is caring💚) and swap away! Don't have any seeds to share? That's OK, just bring your enthusiasm and take a few seeds for your garden anyway. Who knows, perhaps someone will be able to teach you how to save seeds! at Butte County Farm Bureau

What a cool workshop morning making cider!!! It's a bit of a hands on affair with all cutting and juicing!! Really gets down and dirty into how to make cider..... Everything from scrumping to bottling... I was lucky that one of our guests bought some cider apples from her orchard!! We bottled our first brew called 'Sofie' and sampled it, alongside a year old brew..... The younger one definitely needs time to mature!!!! So we got four and a half buckets done today.... So that takes us too 75 litres... All though we do lose a couple litres per bucket to sediment....

We had a couple of rest days after more than a week of go go go. For us, “rest” days mean no big excursions or heavy exercise, but we don’t really rest much. When you live on a 2 acre farm with livestock and an orchard, even rest days are full of tasks. I fixed fencing, filled holes, cleaned paddocks, hauled bark chips, transported many wood rounds, and ran some errands. My toddler threw a lot of rocks and “helped”. It was a lot of physical work. But being productive feels good and is restful for my spirit, if nothing else. We will adventure tomorrow, and my heart will be lighter knowing there is less waiting for me to get done at home. Some days you play, and some you work, and it makes the play days that much sweeter.

Orchids and dandelions.. A way to think about our children's needs. 🍁🍃 There are orchids, needing special care, specific environments, the right kind of support for them to bloom into the best person they can be. And then dandelions, where they can grow where ever with no special tending other than normal a ground, some water and some sunlight. 🌱🍀 What's good for an orchid is good for a dandelion. An orchid is not a broken dandelion. 🌹🌻 They both bring different things into this world, both very needed. I have one of both so far. 🌸🌺 Its a very general way of looking at it, but it makes a lot of sense. Instead of thinking "why can't this child act like a normal child?", it becomes "What does this child need that would be different than another?" - I know they're all unique with their individual needs... But then there's some that seem to need more and different. 🌾🌿 I have an orchid. I have a dandelion. They're both so beautiful.

It was sunny and in the upper 60s today. I was a little hesitant to go outside after yesterday’s allergy nonsense 🤧, but couldn’t bring myself to stay in all day either, so the kids and I ventured out. After moving some rocks from an old fire pit ➡️ and starting to break ground in the garden ➡️ I had to come out of my jacket. I’m not quite melting yet, but I know that will come soon enough. 🥵 But after freezing all winter 🥶, I’m really gonna try not to complain about the heat this summer. ☀️ . #digginginthedirt #dirt #worms #garden #gardening #gardener #wannabegardener #growyourown #feedyourfamily #farmstand #intentionalliving #sustainability #selfsufficiency #selfreliance #homestead #homesteading #homesteader #homesteadher #farmher #farmlife #homesteadlife #simplelife #homesteadmisfits #growinggrays #thegrayhomestead .

Y’all. I’m alive. Sometimes by a thread but I’m here! 🙋🏼‍♀️ Big news! We’re expecting baby #3 @modern.pine this fall! Also in news...exactly why I haven’t been here. If I don’t have a child to tend to or an animal that needs fed, I’m sleeping or trying not to puke. So cheers to that. 😆 It’s been cold, cloudy, windy and rainy here in #northernindiana and I have HAD IT. Mother Nature must be pregnant too bc that’s the only thing that makes sense to me right now. 🧐😂🤷🏼‍♀️ Meanwhile, I’m reading up on all the #gardening things and hope to start ASAP!

I’m so excited!! The new Jessie dress is here!! I’m wearing a small in this solid red version but tend to go for mediums in the printed ones. And these new Shirley kimonos coming in have just been so stunning! I’m adding both the Jessie dresses and the Shirley kimonos to my online shop (☝🏻in profile) so come on over to check them out! In the meantime, do you ladies have any recommendations on how I can keep my baby goats from getting into trouble? One of the little ones had an unfortunate incident involving her ear... ☹️ She’ll be ok just has a little recuperating to do. #lularoeleannewehling #lularoeshirley #lularoejessie #kimono #kimonostyle #whatiworetowork #homesteading #farmhouselife #curlygirl #babygoats #momswithstyle at Waverly, Iowa

#homesteading #babychicks #home It is that glorious time of year when all your pent up warm weather plans start coming to fruition! . We downsized our house to #simplify. . Our hearts song sounds like chicks cheeping, babbling water down at our creek and the ring of the dinner bell. . The book we are enjoying together right now is #farmerboy by #lauraingleswilder. . There is something about mama's fresh bread and how hard work seems so sweet to the soul in this precious book. . Proverbs says " The desire accomplished is sweet to the soul.". I may have a black thumb and have no clue how to can tomatoes, but I have that bread making thing going for me... I highly recommend trying your hand at bread making... @theprairiehomestead assured me in her Heritage Cooking Crash Course I could make fresh bread and it would be fun. Thanks, Jill! I can't wait to get your cookbook! . Girl, go check her out if you even have the slightest inkling about homesteading. She makes it seem less daunting and a lot more like going back to your roots. . Kneading bread dough is so relaxing and it smells divine as it bakes. . Try it out this weekend you never know what Jesus might have for you if you slow down and bake some bread. . Drop a comment if you wanna see my fav recipe and maybe I'll post of picture of my bread I bake this weekend! . ✌❤🕊

We're talking about blood spots in eggs today! Have any of your fresh eggs had blood spots in them? 🍳 I don't find them in chicken eggs much, but I have a duck that lays eggs with blood spots in them all the time. We're talking all about causes and types of blood spots on the blog today. Link in bio.

I'm not gonna lie, I never really imagined being pregnant or having a baby. It seemed like something way far in the distant future and maybe even something that would never happen. . . But after being married 12 years we know God waited for the perfect time and I am grateful. It's still very surreal to me. . . Not too long before we get to meet baby Ava Rose! So happy @aianekarlaphoto came to take some pictures! She's amazing! And although we were super awkward she somehow made us look good! Thank you!! . . Good night friends 🌙 #azurefarmlife
