Our Muscovie is sitting on some eggs for us. Two muscovie ducks to a friends and two leghorns and a naked neck to family. And another naked neck for us because we couldn't give away all our new babies away. #lilsebastianfarmlet #poultry #ducks #farmlet

Scenes from a small farm...it's hard to believe 2.5 years ago we were still fulltime RVers. Most of the "memories" that pop up on FB are of those adventures. This new adventure looks quite different but feeds my soul. Maggie, Fletcher and Dot. Good farmers, who take seriously their duties as stewards of Creation and of their land's inheritors, contribute to the welfare of society in more ways than society usually acknowledges, or even knows. These farmers produce valuable goods, of course; but they also conserve soil, they conserve water, they conserve wildlife, they conserve open space, they conserve scenery.

This is something you shouldn't try at home. I am currently trying to learn all the weeds in my garden and figure out which ones you can eat. I discovered a plant with foliage like carrot greens, assuming it was wild carrot I nibbled on it, then sat down to read up about it on the internet. I should have done it the other way round. The first info I came across was, that wild carrot (also called Queen Anne's Lace) is easily mistaken with hemlock. You eat hemlock and you are dead within an hour. The easiest differentiation is wild carrot has a hairy stem, hemlock does not. I never jumped off my chair so quickly to check the compost bin for the remains. Needless to say, it was a pretty hairy experience #queenanneslace #wildcarrot #hemlock #weed #garden #edible #donttrythisathome #farmlet #lifestyle

No, it's not Easter yet. I finally solved the mystery why we only get one egg every other day. Two of our hens must have decided they'd rather lay in the bushes than in their mansion. Twenty-two eggs I found. Luckily none of them failed the sink or swim test and I have a good excuse to make a sponge cake this afternoon. #chooks #laying #eggs #rougue #farmlet #hens #gardening #bushes

It's after 11pm and I'm putting my last loaves of bread to bed. Even though I tried to plan well it ended up to be a late evening prepping for market. I have a new appreciation for all of the hard work, effort and dedication small farmers, bakers, artists and crafters put into their booths at Farmer's Markets across the world. It's not easy...even if you absolutely love what you're doing. It's long hours whether you're baking, painting, carving, growing, nurturing, planting, irrigating, planning, fighting off grasshoppers or blight or bloat or hornworms or nest invaders...it's trips to the grocery store, feed store or other local farmers to gather ingredients or feed or bedding or supplies. It's mending fences, securing gates, obtaining more bake ware, replacing worn paint brushes, and gas money too. Many pay retail prices to create something new to sell...like bread baked with local ingredients but also add love, care and, dare I say, pride. Others trade goods or labor (blood sweat and tears) to save money but in exchange for precious time (which is more valuable?) all to bring delights for the taste buds or eyes to your local farmer's markets. So if you wonder why that loaf of homemade bread costs more than that mass produced, machine produced 99 cent pseudo loaf at the grocery store ask yourself which is full of care and love (and JUST baked) and which is full of mystery ingredients and already a week (or more) old. Apply that to every offering...the meat hand raised and pastured, the coffee mug made by hand, the truly free range eggs, the one of a kind painting or bracelet, the hand spun yarn, all of it. HOW you spend your money speaks volumes about your character...and it's louder than all those Facebook memes people love to spread. Spread the love instead. ♡♡♡ #mutinyranch #sustainable #Permaculture #garden #gardening #abundance #mcelmocanyon #farmlife #homestead #farmlet #farmersmarket #cortezfarmersmarket #supportlocal #supportsmallfarmers #shoplocal #buylocal #supportartisans

Today we went to a local playgroup and met some really lovely ladies and their gorgeous kids. One family were so welcoming to us newbies and extended their generosity to us and invited us to their farmlet to meet their unique little tribe of friendly pets. A pet pig, a rabbit, budgies, quails, horses, cats and dogs. We kindly accepted the invite and the kids had an absolute ball! They even gave the kids lunch. I am so grateful for the opportunities that come our way and for the people we meet along the way. Today was a beautiful example of how if you are open to opportunities they come your way. But when they do come you have to say ‘YES PLEASE’. ✨✨✨

The plum tree is about to blossom. Last year around this time, I didn't even know it was a plum tree and we only had three plums. I have pruned it quite a bit and cleared up around the base. I learned so much in the last year, mostly trial and error and a lot of youtube videos. I am amazed and excited. Nature is just wonderful. #farmlet #plum #spring #lifestyleblock #tree #blossom #spring

Breakfast from the garden! Man, the kale has been fantastic, even with our super hot summer. It's been growing in the grow tunnel all year and still looks fantastic. The kale is accompanied by some lovely Thai basil (my fav), a little eggplant, a Serrano pepper and an Armenian cucumber. The purple flowers are alfalfa. I sliced the cuke and put it in pickle brine. Ate the radish immediately and then sauteed the rest and topped with farm eggs. Mmmmm. #mutinyranch #sustainable #Permaculture #garden #gardening #abundance #mcelmocanyon #farmlife #homestead #farmlet #growyourownfood #eattherainbow #homegrown

Sometimes i take a break from baking and help get other projects done. Yesterday we fenced in this lovely volunteer squash plant (might be pumpkin??) because the chickens were starting to destroy the fruit. Found two volunteer tomatoes in the vines as well. We also got some shade fabric and i "sewed" it over part of the chicken run (i used baling wire as the needle and baling twine as the thread). Now the chickens will enjoy a bit more shade and protection from the snow (if we get any this year!!). Of course they have their coop and the protected underside of the coop too but this gives them more space if we need to keep them contained. #mutinyranch #sustainable #Permaculture #chickens #backyardchickens #farmlife #farmlet #garden #gardening

Morning light on the Green Cone. Is it weird to gloat over a solar food digester? Because that’s what’s happening here. Between this and the compost pile, we finally have zero food waste in our household. A friend noted that chickens and pigs would eat everything that goes in the Green Cone.... One step at a time. . . . . . . #homesteading #minifarm #farmlet #composting #vashon #amediting #writerslifestyle

A new addition to the team, this early starter was named "Daffodil" to match the emerging spikes of green all around the farm.

More from the witch's kitchen: homemade mayo using homemade mustard. "I don't have the time to make all this" some say. Well, there is not much more skill involved than stirring milk into tea or whipping up some cream. "Do you whip cream? Are you not buying it in a spray can?" "Oh dear, good night environment!" #homemade #mayo #mustard #healthy #farmlet #healthylifestyle #mykitchen

Mutiny Farm Garden: Some things struggle, some die off completely and some flourish. All bring wonder and amazement. A tiny seed becomes a plant that bears fruit and more tiny seeds. How can you not be humbled by this miracle? 1- Arugala flower (letting it go to seed so i can save them for later plantings) 2- Zucchini grown from seed 3- Cucumbers awash in hundreds of flowers (potential!!!) 4- Squash Flower (i failed to label...could be bird house gourds could be butternut or patty pan???) 5- Max Gold Zucchini 6- Peppers starting to flower 7- Ginger...first harvest!!! 8- Mint- growing wild on our property 9- Alpine strawberries started from tiny seeds #mutinyranch #sustainable #Permaculture #garden #gardening #abundance #mcelmocanyon #farmlife #homestead #farmlet #growyourownfood

Last week, I was doing a spot of browsing online - something I really should abstain from but enjoy so much! - when I found myself, as per usual, lingering on the @throwsomeseeds_aus website. Suddenly, fifty years went by in a flash and I was back in the 70's living on a small acreage growing veggies and fruit, running ducks and chickens, milking my goats, spinning fleece from my own sheep! Present day, I make a discovery on my favourite site of "Companion Planting In Australia"! In our 'olden' days of living on the land and harvesting our own produce, it was like having a gardner's bible for references to growing the healthiest organic food possible. Although this is unlikely to be the same as the dog - eared one that was my constant reference, the magic of companion planting is alive and well! It works! Wonderful! #memories #1970s #farmlet #sustainability #reduce #reuse #recycle #organic # @throwsomeseeds_aus #companionplanting #learningasyougo #patchworkofproduce #livingontheland #frosts #drought #animalhusbandry

You're local farmers, bakers, roasters and artist put in a lot of blood, sweat and tears into their craft. But more importantly is the love of the land, the craft and the journey to produce something from their own hands. Today Mutiny Ranch is busy baking breads and roasting coffee for the Farmer's Market tomorrow in Cortez. Look for the Fury's Funny Farm and Friends booth. We'll have farm fresh produce, delicious homemade baked goods. Fresh roasted coffee, smoked spices, handmade pottery (like this gorgeous mug), jams and more!! . #mutinyranch #sustainable #Permaculture #garden #gardening #abundance #mcelmocanyon #farmlife #homestead #farmlet #farmersmarket #coffee #pottery #shoplocal #supportlocalfarmers #supportsmallfarms

#Repost @talesfromthemutiny ・・・ Okay, okay...strange (funny) post BUT i had to share! In December i backed a Kickstarter campaign by Stacey Gose at @weartougher ). Her goal was to create comfortable and properly fitting pants for hardworking women. Having struggled to find pants that fit right AND can stand up to hard labor i took a leap of faith. Well, the pants arrived today and i LOVE them!! Soft but sturdy and high enough on my waist to not show butt crack or slide off my hips. The only thing I'm not satisfied with is that i didn't order 2 pairs!! #TougHer #womensworkpants #farming #farmlife #homestead #farmlet #supportsmallbusinesses #supportyourfellowwoman

Bones waiting for their last use. After making broth and being picked clean by the chooks they are now drying before they end up in the fireplace to later go out with the ashes into the garden as fertilizer. #farmlet #wantnotwastenot #bones #fertilizer #homemade
