This week's challenge is #homesteadsky . The sky here is beautiful. Our house is up on a hill, overlooking the mountains and we can literally see the weather rolling on in. Sometimes I can see it raining in the far fields before it gets to our house! I need to get a real camera so I can snap a picture of the night sky. It's pitch black here, no light pollution whatsoever. The stars are just mesmerizing some nights ๐ŸŒŒ I've even heard that sometimes the northern lights make their way down, but I haven't been that lucky yet ๐Ÿคž #gettoknowahomesteader

Hereโ€™s another fun idea when gifting eggs to your neighbors. Two eggs, a potato, a tomato, a ghost pepper and some basil. As far as Iโ€™m concerned, this package has all the makings for the hottest scramble to spice up your sleepy Monday.

Aussie Seed Swap ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ๐ŸŒฑ . Spring is here and I'm organising an Aussie Seed Swap (due to our heavy quarentine restrictions). If you would like to be paired up with someone and send each other seeds please comment below. I will pair up W.A and Tas residents together due to your own quarentine restrictions. Feel free to tag your gardening friends in the comments. This is open to anyone who like to grow their own food - urban - suburban and homesteaders! I'll close it off in 48 hours so I can start pairing everyone together. Seeds are to be sent off within 1 week of pairing ๐Ÿ˜Š Happy Gardening. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #homestead ย  #farm ย  #garden #gardening #growyourown #selfsustainable #veggiepatch #permie #permaculture #selfsufficient #selfsufficiency #journey #homesteading #homestead #organic #farmgirl #lovewhereyoulive #livingthedream #vlog #farmvlog #homesteaders #homesteadvlog #homesteadingvlog #farmingvlog #growingourownfood #livingofftheland #seedswap #seeds

๐Ÿ‰ ๐Ÿ“ ๐ŸŒฟ Beautiful day today, so why not add to our veggie patch!? . We currently have tomatoes, leeks, potatoes and onions growing.... But we wanted to start something new.... So the spring vegetables/fruits and herbs that we have chosen are asparagus, basil, zucchini & strawberries! We wanted to plant more but we are going to build a massive vegetable garden soon and want to do it all then properly! . Asparagus is an investment crop... Takes a year before we can even think about harvesting it! Looking forward to it because our family eats a lot of asparagus! . Also looking forward to some juicy watermelons over summer! ๐Ÿ‰ ๐Ÿ‰ ๐Ÿ‰ . #littlecreekranch #farm #farming #farmher #homesteaders #homesteadersofinstagram #womenwhofarm #sustainablefarming #selfsufficient #farmgirl #myfarm #farmsofinstagram #girlswhofarm #backyardfarming #gardening #countrylife #growyourown #farmtotable #homestead #farmlife #garden #farmhousestyle #homegrown #homesteading #growyourown #vegetables #veggiepatch #selfsufficientliving #growyourownfood #farmfresh

Today's garden harvest! This is our second year gardening and we've definitely learned a lot of do's and don'ts through trial and error. We've gotten a good idea of what grows well, what doesn't, and what needs to be moved to a new location next year. We're excited to see how much we improve next year as our garden space and knowledge levels expand. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿก #homesteading #homesteaders #homesteads #farms #Farming #farmlife #gardens #gardening #vegan #veg #plantbased #food #nature #organic

Happy Fall yโ€™all! It seems like some years I embrace all that Fall brings, and other years Iโ€™m trying to hold on to every last moment of Summer. . Well this year Iโ€™m ready for it! Iโ€™ve been making soups and baking things with apples for weeks now. Sweaters and pumpkin pie spice are standing by! And I picked my first squash- I didnโ€™t mean to, it was an accident... but Iโ€™m kinda glad I did because even just holding it in my hand feels kinda magical. . #fallinwisconsin #organicgarden #delicata #squashseason #homesteaders #homesteadlife

The bees have been the most exciting addition to the farm. We eat honey daily but that's not why I'm excited. It's all the hard work they do pollinating (I'm looking forward to not hand pollinating!). We are complete novices but have really enjoyed learning about keeping bees AND listening to them buzz around the farm. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #homestead ย  #farm ย  #garden #gardening #growyourown #selfsustainable #veggiepatch #permie #permaculture #selfsufficient #selfsufficiency #journey #homesteading #homestead #organic #farmgirl #lovewhereyoulive #livingthedream #vlog #farmvlog #homesteaders #homesteadvlog #homesteadingvlog #farmingvlog #growingourownfood #livingofftheland #apiary #beehive #bees #honey

We spent our Saturday focused on poultry! We were up at 6:30 to rescue the chickens and peachicks from a failed tarp cover then after chores and breakfast we headed to tractor supply to pick up some bedding for the chickens new (to them) coop. While there we picked up a fun surprise (I'll show you later) then headed home and spent the rest of the afternoon getting the coop and run set up (plus getting our unplanned surprise settled in). Next Saturday we will tackle the peafowl pen! For now, they are bunking with the chickens. #thegratefulsunites #sunites #peachicks #peafowl #peacock #momlife #poultry #homesteaders #missouri #farmlife #FluffyBuffytheChicken #buffrock #newcoop #chickencoop #family #vloggers #tractorsupply #surprise

Sooo this happened today...๐Ÿ˜ I taught my kiddos how to create jewelry using our very own chicken feathers! They have been collecting feathers for quite awhile now in the hopes of doing some crafty things with them, especially my creative little cookie Eya ( @lilchickeedee )! So the other day we made a special trip to @hobbylobby and picked up some jewelry making accessories! We made several different pieces including fish hook earrings, hoop earrings and these adorable little charm necklaces!! They are so excited to try selling them to make some extra money for themselves and to buy more supplies!! #Entrepreneurs #LittleEntrepreneurs #FarmCrafts #BeCreative #ChickenFeathers #FeatherJewelry

I switched from pine shavings to @standleeforage Flock Fresh chopped bedding. It's silky soft and I hope the ducks and chickens enjoy it a little better. Honestly, the premium pine shavings are messy and hard to keep clean. I'll keep you updated on how the chopped hay works but so far, so good. As for coop changes, ducks are messy eaters on a level a toddler couldn't reach. I had to raise the hanging waterer by using a small galvanized steel trash can, so the ducks would quit knocking it over. In the back of the coop against the wall, you'll see two small steel bowls. They are screwed to the wood and the ducks can eat and drink easier... albeit, still messy eaters.

My wife says to me, โ€œwe have to use these bananas soon, they are going bad.โ€ I told her it was no problem and Iโ€™d make some banana bread in the morning in the skillet. I only say that because I make (almost) EVERYTHING in the skillet. โ€œHow are you going to make banana bread in the skillet?โ€ She asked in a tone that really set the challenge. Well here is my answer: Skillet Banana Bread DIRECTIONS: 1. Set oven to 350 2. Mix ingredients in a bowl in the order below. 3. Stir until mostly smooth and pour into cast iron skillet. 4. Bake for one hour. INGREDIENTS: 2 cups all purpose flour 2 teaspoons baking powder 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 pinch of salt 2 eggs 1 cup Sugar 1 stick melted butter 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 3 tablespoons milk 1 tablespoon lemon juice or vinegar 1 cup smashed overripe banana Hope you enjoy as much as we did! I like to serve it warm with a nice pad of butter on top.

Caught this little lady making a pit stop in the tomato patch this morning! . Sheโ€™s a honey bee (presumably one of ours!), and she stopped to clean the pollen off herself. Sheโ€™s using her legs like a comb to collect the pollen from all over her body, and then she will deposit it on her back legs for storage until she gets back to the hive. . Watch how she climbs up on the leaf with her front legs so she can lift her back legs up and get the pollen onto them! . Sheโ€™s a gorgeous bee- the color of her body in the sun and the shine on her wings are stunning! . #natureisamazing #honeybees #beekeeper #savethepollinators #homesteaders #homesteadlife
