Gardening is such a pleasure! I’m only at the beginning stages of learning and am looking forward to trying new plants next year. Our peppers are still going strong. I picked the final tomatoes, which are green. So we will definitely be having fried green tomatoes this week. How is your garden doing? Will you transition to a winter garden? . . . . . #mexipeppers #bananapeppers #mint #basil #jalapenos #greentomatoes #fresnochiles #freshpeppers #chilipeppers #chilipeppers #harvesttime #homesteadersofinstagram #backtoedengarden #permaculture #backtotheland #homesteadhustle #abundance #homestead #homesteading #hobbyfarm #farmstead #authenticlife #selfsufficientliving #modernhomesteader #growwhatyoueat #middletennessee #5DogFarm #gobigorgohomestead #ruralbliss #rusticrevival

Had to share this moment. We 3 ladies were so excited to finally meet that we didn’t even notice our “photo bomber”! It was a pleasure meeting you Roma & Teresa! Thanks to Doug we not only had a great laugh but a wonderful life long memory that will always put a smile on our faces. Thanks to you and Stacy for sharing your lives, time and humor with all of us at the Homesteaders of America conference and on You Tube. 💖 . . . . . #offgridwithdougandstacy #dougandstacy #homesteadersofamerica #homesteadersofamericaconference #homesteadhomies #homesteadguru #youcandoit #makemyday #whataguy #photobomb #myinspiration #homesteadersofinstagram #backtoedengarden #permaculture #backtotheland #homesteadhustle #abundance #homestead #homesteading #hobbyfarm #farmstead #authenticlife #selfsufficientliving #modernhomesteader #growwhatyoueat #middletennessee #5DogFarm #gobigorgohomestead #ruralbliss #rusticrevival

I have so many favorite pictures of my beloved Pierre. It was hard to choose one for this post. Sadly, Pierre passed away Monday morning. He was in my arms as he moved to the rainbow bridge. I have no words to describe my love for him except maybe, everlasting. I miss you Mr. P Bear 😘🌈🐶 . . . . . #pomeraniansrule #mamasboy #bestdogever #missyouterribly #pierrebear #authenticlife #homesteader #homesteading #gobigorgohomestead #abundantlife #rusticrevival #ruralbliss #middletennessee #5dogfarm

We're working on getting all the food and herbs out of the garden to plant our summer cover crop. I have an abundance of tulsi, yarrow, motherwort, and mugwort that I don't need for my own apothecary and won't have time/dehydrator space to save to pass on later. If you're local and want some of these FRESH herbs, get with me in my inbox about coming out to the homestead in the next WEEK to harvest. Trades of cash, fermented food, and possibly other things are welcome and appreciated, and if you don't have anything material to offer, still talk to me. I would like for this medicine to find people who need it! #floridaherbgardening #floridaherbalist #abundance #gobigorgohomestead

The experimental garden is being created. Mr. Bluejeans & I fenced a 30x30 area to try different ways of planting. I figure it’s better to experiment & see if a method or type of plant will do well before investing in a dedicated area for it. So excited to get started! . . . . . #ilovegardening #raisedbeds #gardeningsucess #homesteading #ruralbliss #hobbyfarm #hobbyfarming #farmstead #middletennessee #permaculture #backtoeden #backtoedengarden #backtoedengardening #happyhomesteading #permaculturelife #dirtyjobs #gardentips #gardengrown #gardentour #gardenfresh #farmtofork #farmtotable #authenticlife #farmtomarket #backtotheland #gobigorgohomestead #abundance #rusticrevival #5dogfarm

When have two children who get up around 5, it's 1:35am and you're midway through double batch of meyer lemon marmalade round #4 , because you can't can during the day because of said children so you didn't get started until after 8 and you have to eat another dinner because you had dinner with the kids 8 1/2 hours ago (what!? Had to double check that math...). When you might get 3 hours of uninterrupted sleep if you're lucky. When you just had to get this done because the lemons were ripe and you had a small calamondin harvest this year so you don't have the normal seemingly endless stockpile of calamondin preserves and you go through PB&Js like nobody's business, again because kids, and you're getting ready to leave town for the holidays in 3 days so all non-trip-prep work has to be done today (yesterday? It's already tomorrow). When you're tired as fuck and vaguely annoyed you're missing sleep and will feel like ass tomorrow but really it's all just a blessing and a privilege to have productive fruit trees and the ability to preserve it and feed your family and this is what you signed up for. #jamming #motherhood #homesteading #gobigorgohomestead #whyamistillawake #imissgetting9hoursofuninterruptedsleep

Great news! Our small urban farm just got a bit bigger! We have officially purchased the field that separates our row of suburban houses from the next (not quite visible behind the furthest row of trees)! This gives us just under 2 acres right here in Portland - and boy, have we got plans for this. We've come a long way from tearing the sod from our front yard to plant veggies. #gobigorgohomestead #UrbanFarmOasis #urbanfarm #urbangardenersrepublic #farmlife #homestead #growthings #growyourown
