Save the bees! Roses are beautiful and help the bees. Plant roses with other flowers (butterfly bush, marigolds, whatever you love) to attract bees to your garden, homestead or farm. #backyardfarm #urbanfarm #bees #pollinatorgarden

I spent the whole winter dreaming of having light pink and light yellow roses, and here we are almost a full year of living here and we're just now finding these light pink roses! Did they even exist before, or are they just another one of my manifestations?! 🌹😁🌹 #manifestation #pinkroses #rosebud #inbloom #springtime #flowergarden #zone4b #maine #westernmaine #homesteading #gardenlife #permaculture #polyculture #hugelkultur #backyardfarm #smallfarm #plantbased #veganic #growyourown #backtoeden #selfsustainable #selfsufficieny #gardensofig

The new floors in the farm house. Rainy days that keep me from getting work done might as well be put towards getting other work done. Refinished our old, dark floors to give things a more rustic, farmhouse feel. I used the planet to give some texture and yaw marks that I deliberately left. Finished these oak floors off with Varethane exterior semi-gloss oil based urethane. Ended the day with a surprise visit from momma bear and her 3 cubs out behind the barn. Life is good... #smallfarm #backyardfarm #farmhouse #rustic #reclaimedwood #woodshop #customwoodwork

‪Sunday morning duties on the Emerson Backyard Farm - preparing the extended chicken run & sowing Clucker Tucker for our new Plymouth Rock point of lay chooks. First time we’ve tried it so will be interesting to see how good a crop of green pick we get #backyardfarm #chooks #backyardchickens

Cows are so smart! When Norman was just a wee little rescue and lived in a heated room in our garage, he would open the door 🚪 with his tongue and come in the house. Now, he can turn on the faucet to give himself and his friends fresh water 💦I love ❤️ how he even touches the faucet with his nose, like he knows exactly what I’m talking about!

Things have slowed down around here since the fox problem. Still getting about 1/2 dozen eggs a day though. How many eggs do you get every day?

One of the best Saturdays yet ✨ beautiful sunrise, haircuts, family movie night, all the chickens exploring, and a certain little girl who loves any and all of God’s creatures, including the grasshoppers! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #documentyourdays #posttheordinary #postthepeople #familybonding #motherhoodunplugged #childhoodunplugged #letthembelittle #momentslikethese #theartofslowingdown #theoutdoorchild #childrenseemagic #seekthesimplicity #backtobasics #simplelife #simpleliving #intentionalliving #bedeeplyrooted #momentslikethese #theartofslowingdown #farmhouseliving #lifeonthefarm #hobbyfarm #farmlife #ourfarm #minifarm #backyardfarm #onestitchfarm #homestead

3 year old compost gold. Some gals like jewels, but give me a massive pile of decay and watch me smile:). I hilled our potatoes with this today, then mounded a few wheel barrels full of fresh grass clippings to hold everything in place. This is a root vegetable year! #backyardfarm

Meet Our first born and heir to the coop, Plume II. All dried out and ready to conquer the world 💪🏻🐥 We’re celebrating the newest additions to our family with 🥂! Mama duck (Melon) is taking great care of her babies and Plume has been guarding his new flock! Once they get a little stronger, we’ll be looking for a new home for 2-3 of our ducklings! Know anyone in Norcal who wants some backyard ducks!? 🦆🦆

About to get my can on! 🥫 Over the past few years of gardening I have learned a lot. Learning how to preserve and store our bounty form our garden has been very interesting. There are only so many cucumbers or peppers one can eat. So we can and dry what we can to give to friends or to use in our pantry. Today I am going to jar my first round of pepperoncinis. I love these guys on my salads, sandwiches, or in my bloody Mary’s 😉 . . #backyardfarm #familyfarm #urbanfarm #minifarm #dvwfarms #sacfarm2fork #sacramento #ediblegarden #ediblelandscape #growfood #growingfood #growyourfood #growwhatyoueat

It is officially canning season. We have our work cut out for us for the remainder of the growing season, but it is always so worth it. Today I start our pickles, salsas, stewed tomatoes and jalapeno pepper jelly. 🍅 🍑 🍆 🥒 🌶 #homestead #homesteading #homesteader #farm #farming #farmher #lifeouthere #smallfarm #backyardfarm #womenwhofarm #gardening #garden #outdoors #plants #planting #gardening_love #gardenphoto #canning #prep #foodprep #preppers #lifestyle #lifeofaboymom #farmerswife #hardwork #food #foodie #foodphotography #momblogger #t1diabetes

🌱 Did you know!? ⠀ ⠀ Soaking homegrown lettuce in ice water after harvest:⠀ • Helps it crisp up 🥗 ⠀ • Rinses out hard to get to dirt⠀ • Drowns out any little pests⠀ ⠀ 🥬 We harvested an ENTIRE sink full of mixed salad greens, kale and spinach this morning! I don’t know if we’ll be able to eat this all 🤪⠀ ⠀ We’ve been away from home for the past four days (you’ll know if you’ve seen my stories) and I returned to a lettuce bed out of control and in need of a haircut ✂️⠀ ⠀ 🐛 We also found aphids and a handful of cabbage moths 😡 here’s to hoping some ladybugs 🐞 and other beneficial insects arrive soon!

I’m excited to finally share my other half and #farmdad with you all today for #❤️MYFARM! I couldn’t ask for a better guy to stand by me and put up with all my crazy ideas! He stands by me 110%. He’s never told me I couldn’t, just simply asks why we have weird looking ducks in our back yard 😂 Life isn’t always easy, but I can’t honestly say he’s the best thing I’ve ever said yes to 💕 Happy Father’s Day to all the farm dads out there! #backyardfarm #hobbyfarm #gettoknowahomesteader #homesteadersofinstagram #meaties #meatchickens #betterhalf ❤️

I was going to write a post about always preparing your soil before buying seedlings 🌱 but instead I went to The nursery to get one tomato plant for a new self-watering pot I’m testing out and instead came home with all this - plus the 🍅 plant 😳 #Somuchforknowingbetter #highcottonurbanfarm #eatyourcolors #growyourown #slowfood #homegrown #backyardfarm #urbanfarming #womenwhofarm #organic #homegrown #plantedbased #gardener #urbangardening #foodshare #organic #veggies #socal #glendaleca

Rise & Grind! ☀️ Early morning is the perfect time to inspect your hives. It’s nice and cool out and the bees aren’t as active as they are in the afternoon. The smoke pushes the bees back into the hive and provides the beekeeper with a little time to poke around and inspect the frames. During a hive inspection you look for a lot of things but here’s a few of the big ones... . ✅ Bee larvae: You want to make the Queen is laying. . ✅ Mites or deformed wings: Mites devastate the hive. If you see them or warning signs you need to act fast. . ✅ Queen cells: If the bees are building queen cells it’s a warning sign that the queen may be having problems. . ✅Frame patterns: Inspect the build out of the frames for honey, pollen, and capped frames. You want a nice even pattern across your frames. . . . #urbanbeekeeper #urbanbeekeeping #beekeeper #beekeeping #backyardbees #backyardfarm #familyfarm #urbanfarm #minifarm #dvwfarms #sacfarm2fork #sacramento #ediblegarden #ediblelandscape #growfood #growingfood #growyourfood #growwhatyoueat

This morning’s weather has been beautiful, rainy and calm ❤️ When I went to the back to do chores, there was almost sun during the rain and a misty feel 😍 I did discover that one of Kanga’s littles has disappeared 😢🐥 but the other one looks strong and has been sticking close to Momma. Kanga was roosting up in the roosts with the flock instead of in the box with the babies so I don’t know what happened. It did make me smile, though, when I walked out of the coop to Issy’s goofy grin, waiting patiently for me outside the run so she could show me how well she washed her coat in the wet grass 😂 and of course, the garden always looks gorgeous after a rain and the marigolds caught the water so beautifully that I couldn’t resist a photo 🌸 . #smithhearthandhomestead #backyardfarm #homestead #backyardflock #farmbabies #bantam #chicken #hen #naturesbeauty #rainyday #redretriever #goldenretriever #goldenretrieversofinstagram #farmhelper #marigold #companionplants

Am I wrong, or is life in the country just all around better? There’s nothing more beautiful than driving down empty country roads, watching rain fall in the city. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I cannot wait for the day when gravel roads like these take me to MY house. A house that will certainly have excited dogs that watch you come up the driveway, chickens that run freely (and no doubt dig up flower beds), and goats that call out for treats. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I want it, and I’m constantly working towards it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Alexa, play “Take Me Home, Country Roads” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #homesteadlife #urbanhomestead #TIMGfauxfarm #TIMG #backyardfarm #urbanhomesteading #regenerativehomestead #sustainablehomestead #sustainable

🐐Update on little boy Finn! 🐐 He’s been doing great the last few days, doing better with his bottle, readily nursing from everyone while on the milking stand. {Look at him go!} This morning he was even fighting with his brothers to get to Mocha’s teat’s! He’s been holding steady at 3 #8oz , bummed he’s not gaining, but pleased he’s no longer losing weight! Continuing to be hopeful for this little boy! ❤️ ☺️ #Hhhfarm #happyhoovesandhens #nigeriandwarfgoat #nigeriandwarf #nigeriandwarfgoats #nigeriandwarfgoatsofinstagram #goat #goats #goatsofinstagram #socute #goatkids #goatkid #homestead #homesteading #backyardhomestead #backyardfarm #backyardfarming #urbanfarming #spoiled #bottlebaby

If you could have ANY animal as a pet, what would it be? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’d have an otter 😍 The hub knows... he wants one too 😂 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I never thought I would even have chicks and ducks! Yet here we are, building that Tamblyn Farm life 😉🥰 So, which animal would you bring home if you could?? ⬇️ . . #chicks #ducks #farmlife #backyardfarm
