Thai basil bush the morning after the rain. It’s almost mid December and I’m really rooting for this basil plant to make it through the winter. 🤞🌱

Vlad and Miracle, my two most favorite on the farm and the patriarch and matriarch of my breed project. Imagine with me if you will.....a black V comb within a black crest, gorgeous black waddle, followed by Black and White feathering explosion across the back towards the tail and green translucent feathers throughout and extending into the tail followed by dark blue legs ....😍😍😍 gorgeous right!! Well it sounds great to me anyway, lol! I think Vlad is a beautiful rooster no matter what any Facebook hackler may say. One of the reasons I like Instagram better than Facebook. Anyway, thought I might share some beauty shots of these two lovely babies since I love them so much 🤗 #AppenzellerSpitzhaubenAyamCemaniCross #AyamCemani #FibroZeller #ChickenFarm #Chickens #ChickensOfIG #ChickensOfInsta #ChickensOfInstagram #BackyardPoultry #BackyardChickens #FloridaChickens #BackyardFarm #HobbyFarm #Farmers #FloridaFarm #FloridaFarmers #BeginnerFarm #BeginnerFarmers #Homestead #Homesteaders #BeginnerHomestead #BeginnerHomesteaders #FloridaHomesteaders

Grateful is today’s photo challenge for the #hollyjollyhomestead. This is near and dear to my heart as I have discovered that with a heart and attitude of gratefulness, everything is just a little easier and even my worst days aren’t that bad. Our nightly routine is to go around and have everyone say 3 things they’re grateful for and it’s changed the mindset of our kids and us! I like to write down my prayers and praises too so I can go back and see what’s been answered over the months and year. I have found that even in the littlest thing, like when faced with a mountain of laundry, to say “I’m grateful for the clothes my kids have to wear” or when the house is a mess, if I think “Thank you for my kids and their ability to play and have fun”, my whole mindset on the task changes. I got the idea from Ann Voskamps 1000 Gifts book and it’s made for such an amazing change in our attitudes. Have you tried this - I’d love to know if you do something similar! #gratitudechallenge #3thingsyouregratefulfor

Today’s #farmsteadersholiday photo prompt is Community. 💜We have been blessed with so much community, especially this past year! We couldn’t have built our house without the help and support of our family and community! 🏠While Pete and my father in law did most of the work, we had several projects that would have taken so long and been extremely difficult for just Pete. In those cases, we had friends from our old church come and help on several different occasions and it made the work so much easier. We also have found an amazing new community in our neighbors and new church and we have been blessed by their help, prayers and friendship. #homesteadinglife

We screwed a little divided feeding tray (from @tractorsupply ) into the shed coop. It took some getting used to and one by one they figured it out, ducks and all. We did this to eliminate some waste of seed and feed. It seems to be working much better.

Today for #farmsteadersholiday its community! We are so blessed! I moved from Rhode Island to Louisiana, then to Texas... I knew no one... I had times of feeling very alone, and when homeschooling, being with your children 24/7 living in the woods, with only 2 neighbors (one of which was a huge introvert, thus I did not know them) and with my husband who traveled (and still does) most of the time... I was alone... I didn’t become depressed necessarily, but I was sad and reaching out for friends. Being an adult, it’s very difficult to make friends, I mean it’s not like when we’re kids... kid 1 “hey! Want to play?” Kid 2 “sure!!” Nope as adults we become strangely more aware of ourselves and others judgement of us. I myself will talk to a wall, if it’s talk back... but again living in the woods... no neighbors, it’s hard. Now please don’t get me wrong, I love my house and lack of people around, because it is my sanctuary. However that community I’m posting about, wasn’t right in front of me and I felt lost. Que in the photo and community... we homeschool and I found in our area there is a huge homeschool community, all different groups of people, we have the very structured groups, and the laid back groups, religious groups and the secular groups. I have found friends and community in each group we’ve found. My kids have amazing friends and I have been blessed with some amazing men and women as friends as well 💚 #homeschool #wacohomeschoolers #waco #homesteading #homeschooling #oilfieldlife #homesteaders #homeschoolcommunity #homeschoolcomm @thimbleworks and @coop_crate are sponsoring today’s posts!

The next 4 days will be filled with our farmstead holiday traditions! Today is Day 12 and the prompt is “Community” #farmsteadersholiday 🎄 My community is B-I-G! It’s full of people with B-I-G hearts that carry lots of LOVE! My community stretches to other Countries, across the Continents, it skips through the States , it’s my neighbors, my IG/FB Followers and my Youtube Family/Subscribers, my Community is my family and friends that lift each other up and love beyond borders. 🎄 This holiday season is especially special this year. My family community just got bigger, it grew by one sweet but B-I-G heart. My 12 year old nephew who just lost his only parent, his Momma 2 months ago came to live with us. He went from being the only child to 1 of 6! He is surrounded by warmth and laughter and has brought even more love to our wonderful B-I-G family. God has entrusted his life with us and we will cherish every moment not only making Him proud but my Sister his Momma proud too. 🎄 Thank you all for your LOVE and SUPPORT! I hope I give you what you give me everyday! You are my COMMUNITY and I LOVE YOU! 🎄 Today I’m going to ask my buddy Jim @greendreamproject to play along! He has a BIG community and does such a great job encouraging everyone in it. Check out his YouTube Channel if you haven’t already. You will fall in love with him and his wife! 🎄 Thank you @atablefullinthewoods @moderndaysoldways @coop_crate @the_red_barn_farm @camoandfeathers @the_teenage_homesteader for finding such a special way to bring our community together this Holiday Season.

You don’t choose the #homesteadlife...it chooses you. We dove right in, head first into raising backyard chickens as our first step towards #homesteading. It since has expanded to ducks, and fish in our pond, and native birds flourishing, along with squirrels and even raccoons at night that seem to make short work of any leftover snacks or compost. Our garden, which at one time consisted of a sole mango sprout has turned into more than we could ever have imagined and we are having to expand still! Peppers galore, and tomatoes, collards and lettuce of all varieties, gourds and squash and pumpkins, figs, pomegranates, jackfruit, guava, papaya, bananas, eggplants, zucchini, oh my! If it seems busy, it is. It’s a lot of work, but it’s a simpler life. A good day in a office will never beat a bad day working in the yard. (If there even is such a thing as a bad day in the yard.). It takes work to appreciate the good things, and believe me, this is good. It’s honest work and it brings our entire family joy, well...and eggs. Eggs, too. It’s when I sit back with my morning coffee, watching nature grow all around me that I really am able to appreciate what we’ve worked for. Knowing where our food comes from, trying to produce as much for our family as we can, sharing different life cycles with the plants and animals and allowing our children to develop a healthy understanding about life and food. It’s not a jet-set life, but it’s worth so much more.

“The first supermarket supposedly appeared on the American landscape in 1946... until then, where was all the food? Dear folks, the food was in homes, gardens, local fields, and forests. It was near kitchens, near tables, near bedsides. It was in the pantry, the cellar, the backyard.” -Joel Salatin

I'm so happy that our hens started laying again! We had nearly a month with such few eggs that we had to think about when and for what dish we use them. 😅 . This is one of the things I mostly like about homesteading! You DON'T always have everything and you must be able to get along with what you have! You learn to be flexible! To think by your own! You find many new recipes for one product when there is a huge amount of it and other times you must vary recipes because you don't have one of the ingredients...This is real homesteading life 😎 . So, Christmas is saved! We can bake cookies and make eggnog again 😋 . Thanks, dear hens! 🐔🐔🐔🐓 . . . #eggs #autosuficiencia #vidaenelcampo #granja #homesteading #homesteaders #marans #healthyfood #organicfood #antibioticfreechicken

Pigs are naturally social. They love to be with one another and with you. Wilbur is a boy, so a lot of his drive is to dominate and probably control the environment and then I interpret that as him just loving me...but I’m ok with that denial:) also, goats are spectacular. You should have them. #goats #pigs #julianablendpig #pigsofinstagram #pigstagram #pig #goat #goatlover #piggy #farmlife #minifarm #hobbyfarm #homestead #homesteading #homesteading #homesteadlife #homesteaders #homesteadersofinstagram

The Road Not Taken BY ROBERT FROST Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveler, long I stood And looked down one as far as I could To where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair, And having perhaps the better claim, Because it was grassy and wanted wear; Though as for that the passing there Had worn them really about the same, And both that morning equally lay In leaves no step had trodden black. Oh, I kept the first for another day! Yet knowing how way leads on to way, I doubted if I should ever come back. I shall be telling this with a sigh Somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I— I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference.🤔 (Rumor is that the road less traveled led to Homestead Life!) 😁 #homesteadlife #homesteading #homesteaders #homesteadersofamerica #homesteadersofinstagram #farmlife #backyardgarden #backyardchickens

Trying to decide this beautiful corn’s fate- I need to take some kernels for planting, but I kinda want to keep it as-is and use it for decoration. And I want to try eating some too! . I think I’ll compromise- maybe keep my favorite ear or two in-tact, then pull the kernels off of the other cobs, keep my favorite kernels for planting and grind the rest to eat as corn meal. . I didn’t grow this corn, it’s from a local greenhouse that has been breeding it for many years. They’ve selected it to be huge and incredibly diverse in color- and boy is each ear stunning! I can’t wait to try growing it in my own garden next year and see what happens! . #organicgarden #homesteaders #homesteadlife #growsomethinglovely #heirloomcorn #gardening

What once was an almost unusable backyard with nothing but sandy soil and weeds has transformed into a lush garden set up, a free range chicken and duck kingdom, a lit up porch that hosts the wildest of backyard hootenannies and a literal certified wildlife habitat.

💛☕I love you too coffee!☕💛 Took the kids to school and went back home to some hot coffee that my amazing hubby @faithandfeathersfarm left for me before he headed off to work. I was able to eat breakfast and wash some clothes before the power went out late this morning. Not sure why it went out but the almost 2 hrs it was out was actually pretty nice. It forced me outside to clean up my patio and garden area a bit which I've been neglecting. Slower quiet mornings like today are such blessings, I feel sort of recharged and ready to face the rest of this busy week ahead! #HotCoffee #SlowMornings #NoPower #CoolWeather #WinterDays #TimeToRecharge #SurpriseBlessings

Our new naked neck. We have a total of 3 roosters now, and if we lived on a ton of acreage I would be very happy to have a lot more. But as we share our noise space with neighbors on this small homestead, I have to limit myself. I love different breeds of chickens, and am excited to give breeding naked necks a go. It’s an odd looking bird, but quite stunning.

Tasha Tudor has been my hero since I was a little homeschool kid. Her life and illustrations had me writing my own books with illustration from age eight. Her off grid life also inspired me before it had cachet. My husband and i always said if we stopped traveling for work we would off grid a hand built cabin, just like Tashas. Seeing this slowly become reality is surreal. Hope you follow our handmade build and herbal homestead that will follow. #thehousetheneillsbuilt #tashatudor #homesteaders #offgridkids #semioffgrid #cabinbuild

Our kids have really had a harsh realization this year when it comes to the circle of life... Bear, the doggie cousin was first, followed by sweet Mama Ethel, four litters of baby rabbits throughout the year(we have one left out of all of them), one Mama rabbit, and then over thanksgiving, kitty nanny Minnow. It was quite heartbreaking as well as a big learning experience of having to let go, the natural part death plays once birth takes place and how one comes with the other. Hopefully next year will be filled with more positive moments when it comes to the kids and our four legged family members. 💗💫🦋 #circleoflife #life #death #earthlings #teachingmoments #learntoletgo #kidswithanimals #homesteaders #outdoorkids #teachthemyoung #reality #fierceunplugging

Day #9 /10 *just do it! 🐜🐜 We’ve been stuck at home the fourth day today. Because today will look just like yesterday, achieving one goal, I am bundling these two. 🧤 This snowstorm has brought one good thing about it (next to looking pretty outside); we can’t go anywhere and don’t have to interrupt some serious being inside. We spent some good time just relaxing and taking a break from life’s busyness then hauling ass yesterday. We cleaned like nobody’s business. Everything smelled so good, the dog room was even clean for ten minutes until they came back inside from playing in the snow 🤦🏻‍♀️. It was actually fun to knock it all out. Like a ‘winter clean’, I guess. 🧣 The reason I find it part of self care is because you can’t feel good in a dirty environment. We are not messy people but we are homesteaders so yes, you will find stuff (like, uhm, tools and hardware, or unfinished projects😁)here and there that just needs overlooked every now and then ( i really had to learn that). There isn’t much time for fine details but it’s always ok for unexpected people to come through and not be embarrassed 🙈. We finally have curtains and rugs washed, summer laundry stored in the attic, a new shelving/ dresser system built for the little ones, NO laundry left at all ( that’s unheard of with six people and four dogs in the house) and some food precooked for the freezer. On top of all that my Superman tore down half of the greenhouse to build a rabbit house for our rabbits to be kept in a colony vs individual hutches... We took full advantage of this time off. 🙏🏽 I feel phenomenal. Self care isn’t just about relaxing and chilling. It’s also about fixing your surroundings to feel better inside. And boy did we fix :) we just need to take the time to simply DO IT! Time is what we never have enough it seems. But this was a very good and productive weekend with a healthy balance of recharging our batteries. 💗❄️🌞 #selfcare #selfcarechallenge #justdoit #feelgoodinsideandout #knockitout #neverendingstory #selflove #wecan #happyhomestead #homesteaders #unplug

🍀Bread🍀- there isn't even an emoticon for good, fresh, crunchy, well smelling, homemade wholegrain sourdough bread! 🤣 . This is the best way to convert rye and spelt in food! Its a 24 hour process, if you have the sourdough starter already made. . There's no need of yeast! The naturally grown bacteria from your air that get into the starter are the ones that make your bread grow! . In this recipe I use rye sourdough, half rye and spelt flour, salt, water, sunflower seeds (or others) and some fennel seeds from the garden. . Making your own bread is so much fun and much tastier and healthier than bred from the store. And it's really easy to make. . I might eat some slices now with lots of homemade butter and a cup of fresh herbal tea... 😋 Have a great day! 🍀 . . . #vidaenelcampo #granja #autosuficiencia #homesteading #homesteaders #freshbread #organicfood #fermented #alimentosano #bread #homemadebread

We scooped the coop at a neighbors farm today for free fertilizer, to use at the New Sactuary. We collected nearly 10 feed bags worth of manure for the raised garden beds 🙌 it's to "hot" to use right now so it will cure until spring but the plants will loooove it! We are working towards familiarizing the girls with as much hands on farm training as we can, so today was an epic first encounter for them, got 'em right into scoopin' the poop! They mingled with chickens, turkeys, guinea fowl, peacocks, Alpaca, 3 massive mountain dogs and a lama! We found out that they all reeally like pumpkin and all live together harmoniously all out in the open. Mr. Steve fed us so much invaluable info and resources. Most of the animals there are rescues and donated. He's a pretty great guy. So much abundance!

Homemade marshmallows- only a few simple ingredients, and not *that* hard to make! And no corn syrup required! . These ones are flavored with a touch of vanilla, almond, and cinnamon so they are extra Christmas-y. They’re really delicious, and they have a taste and texture that is nothing like store-bought marshmallows (in the best way possible!). . I make a batch every holiday season, and then I use most of them to make rocky road peanut clusters for Christmas, which I’m sure I’ll be showing you soon! . #homemade #fromscratch #homesteaders #homesteadlife #homecooking #homestead
