Today was a productive day for our girls! We even have a new layer...Miracle who started a few days ago (she's about 7 months old now). I quickly put together a nice large laying box for her comfort. Miracle laying means our Araucana cross girls and the SilverRudd'sblues girls should be following her laying soon! It Looks like our customer's order is starting to fill up nicely! We love how our black copper eggs are so dark, we hope by spring we will have fertile eggs and chicks available! We also have a lavander Ameraucana pair and are hoping the hen starts laying soon as well. We are unsure of age but assume about the same age as miracle. #coloredeggsofig #coloredeggsofinsta #coloredeggsofinstagram #gorgeouseggs #ChickenFarm #Chickens #ChickensOfIG #ChickensOfInsta #ChickensOfInstagram #BackyardPoultry #BackyardChickens #FloridaChickens #BackyardFarm #HobbyFarm #Farmers #FloridaFarm #FloridaFarmers #BeginnerFarm #BeginnerFarmers #Homestead #Homesteaders #BeginnerHomestead #BeginnerHomesteaders #FloridaHomesteaders

The days are getting shorter which means so is the free-range. With that, the ladies are starting to get more mischievous than ever and are trying to roost in the trees again! 🤦🏼‍♀️

These girls 😍 does anybody else think that it’s nearly impossible to get a decent picture of a goat? I’ve resorted to “behind the fence” pictures lately. The second I open the gate, both of these sweet girls are all over me. Can any other goat mamas relate? . . NEW blog post is up!

Want to save time in kitchen? Consider canning vegetables. It makes prepping so much easier. Canning can take some time but if you batch can you will get a lot done. Check out my squashes.

RIP Hyde the rooster. 😞 . I found him in the run last night when I went to close up the coop. I do not have any definitive evidence as to how he died, and honestly I am praying my suspicion is wrong. This is our first loss on our little urban homestead, and it is hitting me a lot harder than I thought it would. It just came out of nowhere. He seemed totally normal and fine when I checked on the chickens just a few hours before. The next few days are going to be all about keeping an eye on the rest of my little flock, and making sure they are all okay. . . . #homesteadersofinstagram #homestead #homesteader #homesteading #homesteadinglife #urbanhomestead #urbanhomesteader #urbanhomesteading #backyardfarm #backyardhomestead #backyardchickens #chickens #chickensofinstagram #rooster #roostersofinstagram

What new varieties are you all trying this next growing season?? The whole seed catalog is like a wonderful glimpse into our family tree and roots. As a Japanese American family we have a lot of history, and foods, that are often unique to us. Our family is from Okinawa and Tokyo before immigrating to the states. We are also believed to have Ainu heritage which are the indigenous people of Japan. Most don't know about Ainu and it was pretty rad to see a bit about them in this catalog. Before the war our family had a flower farm and primarily grew their own food. Before the Japanese Americans in southern California were detained to internment camps there was a huge, unique and prolific market of Japanese flower growers. They had some of the most unique bouquets that were in high demand. Our Ojichan would talk about some of the mums, asters and pot morning glories that were lost in that time. . . I love the selection of pot morning glories in this catalog. I've always wanted to learn how to properly grow and care for morning glories in pots. In Japan you can see lots of varieties on balconies, windows and steps. All in pots! In the states we see morning glories as crazy uncontrollable vines taking over fences! . . It's important for future generations that we make a stand about food now. We need variety. We need heritage and history. We need to figure out and conquer why food is making us sick. It all starts with a single seed. Sometimes, those seeds come with an important history lesson. . . Why do Okinawans have the longest lifespan? What is different between the diet and lifestyle of Okinawans and most Americans? Most of it is available in the Whole Seed Catalog. Thank you @bakercreekseeds for what you do. This was more than just a seed catalog to us <3 . . #wholeseedcatalog #rareseeds #bakercreekseeds #homesteadhomeschooling #donoharmtakenoshit #farmher #urbanfarmher #urbanpermaculture #growyourfood #homesteading #gardening #urbanhomestead #seedlings #containergarden #backyardfarm #growyourfood #urbanfarm #playindirt #permaculture #gardenlife #foodnotlawns #gardentotable #growyourgroceries #ediblegarden   #urbangarden #beyondorganic

A fully ripened papaya might not look appetizing on the outside, it might even appear rotten or have mold. But once you peel off the skin, you will see the beauty within. After slicing and drizzling lime juice over it, I like to chill it for 5-10 mins in the freezer before eating. Papaya has as much vitamin c as two lemons. #backyardfarm #plantbased #backyardgarden #papaya #papayafruit #fruit #papayaishighinvitaminc #fruitfordessert #trustyourfruit #eatwell #foodforestry #socalfarming #subtropicalgarden #sierramadre

raising chickens has oddly been one of the most emotional experiences I have ever had. this week we have started to arrange for a new home for this guy and other other rooster, Snuggles, as we can’t have roosters in the city. they are going to a great place, but I will really miss their cute butts 💛

Here’s the story of my Gretsch Boxcar Resonator.... Self taught ukulele and mandolin, tried to go for guitar and got scared. Returned the resonator and immediate regret. A few months later, I went to buy it again and that same day I learned two new songs. I have new motivation to learn. 🎶

My morning coffee snuggle buddy clover. He is the sweetest cat. We had a rocky relationship when I first got him. He had several infections in his front leg and I had to clean his wounds 3x a day. He hated me!! He finally had to have his leg amputated. Ever since his surgery we have been best buds! Love my 3 legged clover!!❤❤❤❤ #mayhem_acres #animal #love # #animals #backyardfarm #organic #organicfarming #growyourown #gardening #organicgardening #garden #backyardfarming #naturalfoods #urbanfarming #growyourownfood #mygarden #hobbyfarm #organicfood #hobbyfarming   #rescuepet #catsofinstagram #cats #adootdontshop #blackcatsofinstagram

The dreaded molt is always a time of struggle...how to fill all the egg orders, wondering if the hens are getting enough protein, trying to keep the hen house/coop free and clear of feathers (fyi-you can’t!) and being (almost) so desperate that you have to buy eggs from the store...I don’t want to be one of those girls (although I am), but store bought eggs are so not good! Once you’ve tasted the real deal, it’s hard to contemplate going back to the fake stuff. It was a pleasant surprise to find three eggs today (and the first white one in over a month!) I hope this may be a sign of the hens coming out on the other side of the molt, because I really, really don’t want to buy eggs! 🙏🥺 #chicken #chickens #backyardchickens #urbanchickens #fresh #farmfresh #farmfresheggs #fresheggs #molting #urbanfarming #urbanfarm #backyardfarm #backyardfarming #utah

With king-like archetype and hearth driven ambition one more element is nearly complete and checked off the list for making this HalfAcreHomestead winter worthy. A very small barn-raising of sorts with the use of new and wonderful old materials. Blue sky and the resemblance of a moon high up while the earth in these parts is shrouded by California’s wildfire haze. Optimism struggles to take over while I wait anxiously for rain to make something different with this grey-brown landscape and matching sky.

Fall. Chickens. Chunky sweater. Soft hat. Yes please! . Also, it’s bogo week with doTERRA, and I should write something profound here about oils but I’m honestly exhausted lol, so I’ll just say, you need OnGuard, you need Breathe. Might as well get the second for free babe. Link in my bio to order. ☺️ Expires tonight at midnight, like Cinderella’s ballgown.

I don’t mind them stealing my seats (and pooping in them) because they’re so cute and they come running to me when I come outside to hang out.

All I can think of when looking into the trees...is all the spiders that live up in there! Yesterday I was wearing my hair in a bun and stepped into the coop and FELT the cobweb that I stuck my head into. Are you kidding me?! Time to clean and knock down some webs.

Accidents happen, sometimes they're gut wrenching but they happen. 😵 As my husband posted over on our farm page @faithandfeathersfarm we had a big accident here the other day. Our kids, while playing in the dining room, ran into the cord connected to our egg turner and ended up breaking all of the eggs we had collected for an order. It was a difficult situation but we are so thankful that the Lord was guiding us all the way and that we were able to use the situation as an opportunity to teach forgiveness & love to our kids! We are also very thankful for the understanding of the customer in allowing us to push the order back a week since our girls still aren't laying fast enough to fulfill her order in just a few days time. All in all we are glad it's over and thankful for the lessons learned! #DontCryOverCrackedEggs #Lessons #Oppurtunities #Thankful
