We have 8 new babies from our double broody Cuckoo Marans Sisters Bellatrix and Silverbell! Unfortunately we had to remove them due to them stepping on them so frequently and stressed by all the goings on around them. We have eight babies. 4 blue Silkies and 3 BBS Ameraucanas (2 splash and to my excitement a blue).We are very excited! 😍 . . . #broodyhatch #bluesilkies #BBSAmeraucanas #ChickenFarm #Chickens #ChickensOfIG #ChickensOfInsta #ChickensOfInstagram #BackyardPoultry #BackyardChickens #FloridaChickens #BackyardFarm #HobbyFarm #Farmers #FloridaFarm #FloridaFarmers #BeginnerFarm #BeginnerFarmers #Homestead #Homesteaders #BeginnerHomestead #BeginnerHomesteaders #FloridaHomesteaderspop

I love beets! I've harvested almost all of my beets from the spring garden and this year I am trying to ferment my beets (a tutorial on that is coming soon). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But usually, I just go for a good beet salad. Not only that it's tasty and super healthy but I also love that I can make a large bowl of it and keep it in the fridge for a few days. This way, I always have a salad ready for any meal or for a snack between meals. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Do you like beets? What's your favorite way of eating beets?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Here is the recipe for my favorite beet salad (link in profile) --> https://ladyleeshome.com/israeli-beet-salad-onion-cilantro/⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #growyourownfood #organicgardening #vegetablegardening #instgardners #ediblegarden #organicvegetablegardening #growingfood #lovegardening #veggiegarden #gardenlife #greenthumb #homesteadinglife #homestead #homesteadmama #homesteading #homesteader #homesteady #homesteadersofamerica #homesteadersofinstagram #homesteaders #homesteadlife #homesteads #beet #beets #beetrecipes #beetrecipe

Tidied up the asparagus bed by putting lines up to support the ferns and cutting back the parsley which runs down the middle hard. The parsley is in its second yer and is trying to go to seed, it's been amazing but it will probably have to be removed completely eventually to give the asparagus more space. Need to get on with building the herb bed.... #asparagus #asparagusbed #parsley #homesteadlife #homegardening #homesteaders #homesteader #smallholdinglife #selfsufficiency #nodig #homesteadliving #nodiggardening #kitchengardenfarm #kitchengardener #vegetablegardening #kitchengardening #homesteadinglife #nodiggarden #homesteadgardens #homestead #gardeninglife #nodigging #sustainableliving #gardeninglove #homesteading #kitchengarden #smallholding #gardening

The prodigal chicken returned! 🐓 . This morning we were sad to find out of our 6 littlest chickens one had died, one was injured and one was missing. We have separated the injured chick in hopes she may be able to gain her strength back and recover. . And then how happy we were when the missing chick found her way back to the shed they had been housed in! We were worried that something would have gotten her when we couldn’t find her this morning. Now she’s back with the rest of them in the coop and newly expanded chicken yard! 😊 . . . . #chickens #raisingchicks #chicks #homestead #homesteading #farmfresheggs #homesteaders #homesteadlife #noglamfarmlife #farmstead #farmadventures

Sweet, darling Mayzie. Today marks her 11th year, and despite her wrinkles, slowing stride, and greying coat, she's still the most cheerful creature I've ever met. I think she might also be the gentlest; this sow has been giving toddlers actual piggy back rides since '08. It'll be a sad day when I can no longer look out a window and see Mayzie with her descendants foraging around our house. She is the pig who made us pig people. She's walked this land longer than any other animal here on the farm, even longer than the youngest Schouten child. Mayzie is retired now and spends her days greeting guests, wandering the farm, and watching over all her grandpiglets and great-grandpiglets. #closertothelandhogs

People talk about how fake social media can be...how Instagram shows the happy outside that everybody wants you to believe. Like Andy Warhol said, "you want to portray the best version of you" or something close to that anyways. Meanwhile, we're over here with dirt smudges, sweat (with hay stuck in, uh, awkward places), and muck boots cleaning up poop while hoping our goats don't pull our shorts down and moon the new neighbours. (Our buck's favourite past time is to play "tug the clothing...") . . I think that is something that makes farming or homesteading a bit different. If you only posted the good and pretty things, you probably wouldn't have a whole lot to talk about. It's all a bit messy. But beautiful and interesting nonetheless. Perhaps, all the more. . . .

My husband makes the best homemade pasta and Lorelai always asks to help and he saves her a little piece of dough. He helps her put it through the roller and she makes fun shapes and designs. I love to see them spending time together and making memories. 💜 #daddyanddaughtertime #familycooking #homemadefreshpasta

I am very thankful no one was around to watch me chase ducks for five minutes while trying to get a picture. Unless I'm holding something delicious in my hand they are just so sciddish! Meanwhile the chickens are way up in my business and the personality differences just crack me up 😂 Anyway today was just beautiful and it was perfect to be outside. Coming out to enjoy the sunshine, the quacks, the cock-a-doodle-doo of the roosters, and all the other sounds of this place makes for a very peaceful summer night 🥰 . . . . . #simplypallets #livesimply #ducks #farmher #farmfamily #chickens #chickenlady #homestead #homesteaders #summernights #828 #828isgreat #itsthelittlethings

As much as we love trees, our new motto is “fall them before they fall on you”. We had more than a few terrifying moments this winter with unstable trees coming down, so this is necessary for our safety.

We’re lucky to be friends with the Kutzlebs, of El-Jireh farm, because every once in a while we get the chance to farmsit for them. They’ve sculpted their land into a paradise for garden-lovers, every inch carefully thought out and molded to be experienced (through sight and glorious scent) as one wanders. Did you know you could visit this beautiful place, too? Their tiny house (created from the farm’s ancient mill office building) is on Airbnb and it’s the perfect rustic retreat. You won’t find a lovelier place to stay in the area, and it’s incredibly affordable, too! Check it out here - https://abnb.me/T5y0KZaKxX (or go to the link in our profile if that’s easier) —————— By the way, they didn’t sponsor us to share this. They’re just our good friends, and their place is so amazing I really wanted to share it so it could be enjoyed by more people! 🌸🌼 . . . . #tinyhouse #sustainablefarm #retreat #garden #organicfarm #organic #tinyhouseretreat #simplelife #simpleliving #slowliving #airbnbtinyhouse #farmlife #homestead #homesteaders #gardeners #airbnbstay #greenliving #eco #ecofriendly #flowergarden #foodjustice #airbnb #gardening #slowfood #sustainableagriculture #sustainablefood #ecoretreat

I woke up to a cool 54°F this morning. Mother Nature is obviously having a psychotic break. August in May.....October in June.... It's even working it's way into my subconscious. Last night I dreamed it snowed.

Just finished making these delicious avocado egg rolls. I absolutely love the Cheesecake Factory 🥑 egg rolls but since I've vowed not to eat out due to not knowing what they put in the food, or how it was prepared and the spiritual well being of the person making the food, I've been making all my favorite meals right at home! Dm me if you'd like the recipe! . . . . #copycat #cheesecakefactoryathome #avocadorecipes #avocadoeggrolls #electricfoods #wholesome #vegan #vegetarianrecipes #blackvegetarian #blackhomesteaders #homesteadlife #homesteaders #afrovegetarian #healthlyfood

Today we put in a memory garden for Jake. He loved to fish so we put it next to the pond where our yard was covered with baby catfish earlier this spring. Which gave it its name Catfish Garden, the kids decorated it with rocks and garden statues. Forester helped daddy finish up the garden and take care of the chickens. Can’t wait till it starts to bloom! #homesteaders #garden #memorygarden #catfishgarden #gardengnome #kidsandtractors #daddyandson #futurefarmer #chickentractor #meatbirds

I really NEEDED this dinner! We’ve been having too many quick thrown together dinners, too many birthday treats, and eating too much chicken... and I haven’t been feeling my best because of that. Time to slow down and nourish myself, and this dinner hit all the buttons! . The pile of brown is part grass-fed ground beef, and part homegrown rainbow potato hash browns cooked in a generous amount of really good olive oil. The green is baby broccoli steamed and sautéed in garlic butter. Lots of healthy fat, lots of veg, lots of protein from red meat and I’m feeling incredibly satisfied and refueled! Sometimes simple dinners are just the best. . #realfood #homegrown #homemade #homesteaders #jerf #homesteading #lifeonthefarm #homesteadlife

We’ve been homesteading for four years. We embarked on this adventure after we became homeless due to natural disaster to our rental home. We started in a pop up camper, on raw land. Our plan was to build a shipping container home but we had to put that on the back burner. We bought a LITTLE shed that had an open loft upstairs and we installed windows, insulated it, and closed the gap between the loft so no one would fall over the edge. Just an upstairs and downstairs. Then, we started to add on to it. It’s been a long, long process.... it still feels like we are “camping” but I’m seeing the fruits of my husband’s labor , and my patience now. This is the eastern wall of what will be our master bedroom. That big window makes it feel like you could walk into the trees! It’s flippin’ gorgeous and I’m so excited! I’m also SO proud of my husband who has never done anything like this in his life and taught himself completely. Heart full💯💯💯 . . . #tinyhousegrows #semioffgrid #homesteaders #homesteading #buildingahouse #buildingwithlogs #nature #rustic #primative #pioneerswithbabies #woods #tennessee #adventurebegins

An unexpected day outside. The radio had me under the impression it was going to rain... musta heard them wrong. Everything is looking amazing! Everything I planted, minus carrots are up an thriving. Even some green strawberries 😍 A hand full of curious looking onion tops and my future eggs layers 🐤 If someone asked me what my favorite thing to do was, I'd say watching things grow. It demands a patience not much else does and the rewards are... well you'll see in another month or two 🥰 Grateful for the planning I put in this winter, it has made a different. #onions #brocolli #egglayers #ameraucana #wyandotte #strawberries #carrots #potatoes #favoritethings #watchingthingsgrow #growth #gardening #homesteading #homesteaders #unexpected #grateful

My baby chicks aren’t babies anymore! They are 3 weeks old and as you can see, have grown much bigger. Their feathers are coming in and a few are already growing combs. It’s too soon to tell who’s a rooster and who isn’t but some are definitely displaying roo behavior. The sumatras are scrappy! I knew that about the breed but I thought that a bit of wild would be beneficial out here in these woods. It can be harsh. My hope is to be able to keep one Sumatra male along with a Wyandotte. If I have to separate the flock, I can do that. We’ll see how it goes. I know they need to establish their pecking order, so I let them do what they’ve got to do as long as no one gets hurt. They can now fly and like to perch themselves on top of the brooder/gate. So far it hasn’t been a problem. They have a room all to themselves and when they see me coming to check on ‘em, they simply jump off the gate to join the rest. In 3 more weeks, they’ll be feathered enough to move outside to the coop! I still have all 21 birds. We haven’t lost anyone 🙏🏻🐥🐥 I’m super happy about that. ❤️

My babies are finally growing! I know most of you are already harvesting, but my garden is just starting. We had snow after Mother’s Day so I had to start my garden late.
