Nothing like it!💜💜 Hens moved to their new to them coop on the other side of the property, still training! And Faverolle chicks placed in the nesting box instead of the on the ground of the tractor, also still training. And everyone has fresh water for in the morning!💪🏽🙃☀️🔥

When the hubby gets a late night craving for bread, we all win! He whipped these up and now we’re eating them for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I don’t know if there’s much else in the world that’s as good as fresh baked good right out of the oven.

Clementine’s beard has come in beautifully! 😁 This is my girl when she was just a little thing! Swipe to see what she looks like now! I’m always happy for an excuse to share chick photos, and #ChickThrowback with Erin @urbannarnia is a wonderful excuse! 😁 • • • • • #backyardchickens #chickensofinstagram #farmfresheggs #chickens #mychickencoop #lovemyfarm #countrylife #farmlife #simplelife #homestead #homesteading #homesteaders #homesteadlife #homesteadmom #montanafarm #montana #montanahomestead #familyfarm #familyhomestead #instagramhomesteaders #farmlifebestlife #farmliving #hobbyfarm #farmher

My girl turns 2 today. I miss her being a baby. It seems her infancy flew by even more so because her brother is only 14 months older. I don't remember a lot, and I wasn't well the first year after she was born. It makes me sad, but now it only makes me appreciate the small moments I have with her. She is really something else. I learn from her daily and her boldness and stubbornness really only makes me proud that she is not easily shaken. Her compassionate heart is the biggest I know. She will ALWAYS help out and comfort when any of us are in distress. Even if she's mad at the moment, she will stop it all to make sure we're all alright. Her silliness keeps me laughing all day. I wish I could make all the face expressions she does! Haha. I see a mother in her already. The way she loves and nurtures her dolls and animals amazes me. . . These children are not "ours". I'm beyond grateful and blessed to have been hand picked by my Lord to raise this beautiful woman to be. She encourages me to be a better woman. God knew I needed her! . . . Happy Birthday Lucy! . . . . . . . #birthdaygirl #birthday #sweetgirl #homestead #homesteaders #homebirthbaby #homebirth #farmgirl #farm #farmstead #iloveyou

This ornamental just popped back up after an entire year of total neglect. We spend so much time on edible plants, sometimes we forget to tend to the ones that offer their beauty instead. Welcome back, #peacelily.

Ready for harvest! Thank you @modernlivinghomesteader 🌱 ・・・ These #wild #elderberries are much better than our store bought plants. The #berries are larger, juicier, and, best of all, ripen all at once. I spent an hour picking from our cultivated plants and ten minutes working on this #beauty. David managed to snap a pic right as I finished. #womenwhofarm #homesteaders #homesteadlife #wednesdaynight #modernlivinghomesteader #slowfood #growyourownfood #herbalmedicine #beyondorganic #rusticbarn #oldbarn #oldbarns #farmchores @louisville.ladder

Spot the feline. One of our lovely, friendly, timid house cats has really gotten into her groove as outdoor farm cat and now comes back to the hose but rarely, preferring to survey her domain from various hiding holes. She obviously had a bit of a scary night last night as she’s suddenly completely unafraid of our massive gallumphing retriever. She has clearly realised that the wood pile is a good place to do a chameleon impression! 🐈 🐈 🐈 🐈 #homesteading #homesteadliving #homesteaders #homesteadinglife #homesteader #farmcat #hobbyfarm #hobbyfarming #hobbyfarmer #catsofig #catsofinstagram #farmlife #farmfresh #farm #farmer #smallholding #selfsufficient #woodpile #ragdoll #ragdollcat #whitecat #countrygirl #countryside

Right now we collect 5 eggs almost every day in shades of light brown! My 4 Red Stars, and Monique, the naked neck Turken are BA little layers! Recently 2 ducks started laying! And in the next couple of weeks I am expecting my Wyandotte hens to start laying for the first time!!!! I’ll know for sure if Light is a girl! 🤦🏻‍♀️😆 What I’m really excited for are the first eggs from my Maran cross girls from Jess @thefowlfarm and then my Olive Eggers from Ashleigh @pastures.and.pine 😱😆😁 So SO excited! I still have to be patient for those eggs, though! 🥚🥚🥚🥚🥚🥚🥚🥚🥚🥚🥚 #thedailyegg @fresheggsdaily ・・・ #eggbasketcollective @roots_and_refuge ・・・ #Gatheredfromthecoop @thelittlegreycoop • • • • • #backyardchickens #chickensofinstagram #farmfresheggs #chickens #mychickencoop #lovemyfarm #countrylife #farmlife #simplelife #homestead #homesteading #homesteaders #homesteadlife #homesteadmom #montanafarm #montana #montanahomestead #familyfarm #familyhomestead #instagramhomesteaders #farmlifebestlife #farmliving #hobbyfarm #farmher

For my #lessonsonthehomestead I learned about pruning tomatoes! In all my years of tomato growing I haven’t really had to prune tomatoes, but for some reason these plants really wanted to grow leaves rather than grow fruit. I thought *maybe* I needed to prune them so they could focus more energy on fruit rather than vegetation. If you’re having this problem you can try pruning off the suckers that start growing in between the main stalk and a branch. You can see the little nub here that I pinched off. That will help divert the plants energy to fruit growing. Then you can also try feeding your plants with a fertilizer that is low in N and higher in P & K. I’ve always just fertilized my plants with the generic like Miracle Gro all purpose stuff, but tomatoes actually like a fertilizer that is lower in nitrogen. 🌱❤️🌱 @mistymeadowshomestead @elizpmcphee

We said goodbye to 10 of our hens this weekend, it was bittersweet. They were all breeds that we weren't necessarily interested in breeding and that's what we want to focus on right now. We have a few breeds, a few mixes and a few egg colorations we want to work on and while these ladies were all sweet little ladies they didn't quite fit what we needed. A lovely lady that has a large awesome chicken yard with several other chickens, guineas and a couple mini donkeys provided them with a great home! Now we have a few less mouths to feed ... for a short while at least since we now have at least 3 pippers in the incubator!! With several more expected over the next two weeks!! Oh boy, sometimes I wonder where will this little chicken adventure be taking us!!

Was not expecting this huge haul from the garden today. I have officially been bitten by the garden bug... this is SO rewarding and it actually makes me want to cook knowing I grew this.

We have a little critter cage for Charlotte so whenever we find something, she can observe it up close (without it hopping away) and learn about it. Then we release back where we found it.

My Jemima. 😍 Meets me everyday for a cuddle. I try not to have favourites; but she just sucks me in every time.. she stands at the door, pecks my toes and then sits down and blocks my way to the others until i pick her up. She also thinks she's the rooster of the bunch. She flew at buda the other night when we were trying to mite dust the rest of them. She's brave, fierce, and completely loveable. "I am woman" is her slogan... . 🐯 Not long to go until our fencing is done and she can embrace the outdoors a bit more. 💕 . #jemima #chicken #myfave #chick #chickensofinstagram #brave #fierce #iamwomanhearmeroar #clucky #favourite #loveher #homesteaders #bigcoopgonnagetbigger #freerangecoming

When you invite your family from the city for “vacation” and next thing they know they’re in a chain gang. But honestly, what eight people can accomplish in an hour of clearing and levelling land is pretty impressive. I highly recommend you invite as many friends and family as you can for a “nice weekend in the country” 😉

Caught this guy preparing for flight! James the Peacock loves to be the center of attention, but he doesn’t really like us to get too close to him. It’s pretty impressive to see him fly and he’s beautiful even though he’s molting and has lost most of his feathers already this summer. Just ask him! 😍 He’s a keeper even if he is aloof and loud. 💚💙 Did you know peacocks lose their feathers after the mating season is over?! They grow back a whole new set over the winter so they can find a mate in the spring. 😍 . . . #jamesthepeacock #peacocks #peacocksociety #nowyouknow #peacocksofinstagram #peacocklover #bigredbarn #iowagrams #iowahomestead #homesteaders #homesteadersofinstagram

One of my favorite pictures ever! I feel so blessed to be able to raise my children this way! ・・・ After the babies are asleep tonight, and before we do the night time animal rounds, Tanner and I are going to take some of the cream from this morning’s milking, that has been rising all day, and shake it up in a mason jar until it tastes like the best whipped cream you ever had, and then eat it over fresh raspberries and blueberries! I love having a dairy cow! • • • • • #momlife #motherhoodalive #toddlerfun #toddlers #babies #babygirl #lovemyfarm #countrylife #farmlife #simplelife #homestead #homesteading #homesteaders #homesteadlife #homesteadmom #montanafarm #montana #montanahomestead #familyfarm #familyhomestead #instagramhomesteaders #farmlifebestlife #farmliving #hobbyfarm #familycow #jerseycow #cow #familymilkcow #dairycow #homesteadcow

Looking at these pictures I’m realizing that my baby boy doesn’t look so much like a baby anymore! He’s turning into a little #farmboy ! He’s not 100% on the baby goats, though! He loves the idea of feeding them, but they jumped up on him once and it was rather overwhelming! ・・・ I took several photos today that I’ll be sharing with Lisa @sevenlittlesilkies and Sherrie-Louise @country_fried_momma for #ittybittyfarmhands 🤗 • • • • • #goats #goatsareawesome #goatmom #nubiangoats #nubians #babygoats #babyanimals #cuteanimals #lovemyfarm #countrylife #farmlife #simplelife #homestead #homesteading #homesteaders #homesteadlife #homesteadmom #montanafarm #montana #montanahomestead #familyfarm #familyhomestead #instagramhomesteaders #farmlifebestlife #farmliving #hobbyfarm #farmher
