Squash klar til bestøvere 🐝🐝 Der var et forfærdeligt morads under vores æbletræer, som ikke gav nogen særlig nytte for hverken os eller andre. Derfor lavede jeg en motorsavsmassakre sidst på vinteren og dækkede fladen af med kraftig sort afdækningsplast som jeg fik af en lokal landmand. Jeg plantede vores græskar og squash her i skyggen under de gamle æbletræer og håbede på det bedste. Jeg er blevet meget positivt overrasket over udbyttet, så det kan helt sikkert gentages andre steder hvor vi skal have ryddet op i buskadset... #selfsufficient #selvforsyning #självhushållning #homesteading #husmand #gardening #zucchini #squash #flovers

Blue skies, baby bear 😍 did I say bear? 😬 meant cow obvs 😆 So delicious! Another lovely weekend spent offline. It was super busy, we planted ten fruit trees and had a big meeting to get our two day a week life learning collective off the ground. But taking social media out of it makes everything less rushed, frantic. Instead of reaching for my phone in the inbetween moments I’d find myself just gazing at nothing... which, inexplicably kinda makes everything feel slower, richer. 🤷‍♀️ I’m thinking of making it a weekly rhythm - 4 days with the webs, 3 without... ❤️ PS if you want to make your social media moments fabulous do give @ecowithem_ a follow, she’s doing such magnificent work this #plasticfreejuly with her incredible, helpful and inspiring art 😍 #sgiew_flourish

There’s much my dad can no longer do physically right now. Which breaks my heart into a million pieces. But reading to my littles? That he can do. Grandpa always has time for a cuddle and a story ❤️ Thankful beyond measure to all be under one roof as we navigate this season of life together. . . . . . #earthmamahomestead #homesteading #homesteadlife #mamalife #farmlife #instamama #realmama #homestead #alaska #sustainableliving #selfsufficient #loveourhomestead #thealaskalife #crunchymama #seeksimplicity #farmstead #intergenerational #grandpa #grandparents #livingtogether #littlereader #twinning #twinlife #twinmama #twin #twinstagram #twinsofinstagram #wisdom #grandpaknowsbest #lovemydad

Sitter här med mitt morgonkaffe och mina fröer och försöker vakna till liv lite 🙏 Vad vore livet utan dessa fröer egentligen? 🙄😂 😍 Sambon åkte till för en stund sen. Första dagen efter semestern. Så. Jäkla. Tråkigt. Själv ska jag snart ut och vattna järnet. Nu jävlar ska det bli fukt rakt igenom. Har varit (och är fortfarande på vissa ställen) som torrt grus 1-3 cm under ytan. Inte bra. Så nu är det vattning o sen organiskt material, det lilla jag har, som jag får försöka fördela ut. Wish me luck 👍😀 Trodde aldrig jag skulle längta efter att få klippa gräsmattan 😲🤔 #odla2018 #odlarglädje #helasverigeodlar #odling2018 #organicgardening #ekologiskodling #trädgårdsliv #odling #närodlat #minträdgård #gardener #gardenersworld #gardensofinstagram #instagarden #växthus #greenhouse #odlaeget #sustainableliving #homesteading #hemodlat #groworganic #growmyownfood #ekologiskt #organicmatter #draught #torka

🌴S U G A R V A L L E Y🌴 Tropicolime ditambah pure honey 🍯 Kadang kayak lebay ya kalo tak bilang ramuan mbok kar tu 100% organik? Abis gimana ya, pake bahannya dari pekarangan saya semua, g pake campuran bahan pabrikan sama sekali. Dan apa2 yg tumbuh dipekarangan juga ga dipupuk ato disemprot apa2. Cm disiram air leri tok, dan sesekali ditimbun daun yg dikumpulim dari nyapu halaman. Jadi para tetaneman ya tumbuh2 sendiri dengan sukarela. #sugarvalleytropicolime #organicfood #gardentotable #healthylife #healthydrink #homesteading #sustainableliving #livingoffgrid #roadtoselfsufficiency #buildingresponsiblebusiness #zerowasting #localgoods #jemberdelight #farmermom #farmerlife #businderkece

Ok, I had to post this one as well. It’s so good I’m getting a lot of vibes from it and I’m not quite sure what exactly those vibes are...but I’m getting them 🤔 Lemme know what vibes y’all are getting from this picture down below!

The experimental strawbale pumpkin patch is starting to vine out! I've been using more water thanks to some suggestions and it is making a difference. We also got some cooler weather and partly cloudy days that has also helped. 🎃

We now have this sweetest Shetland sheep living with us on the farm! This is Serena, who chose us. She's 3 years old and every time we visited the farm they came from, Serena came right up to us for snuggles. Her owner wasn't really planning on selling her but with the goal of downsizing the herd in the next couple years, she offered Serena to us when she saw how much she liked us. She's such a love! We also have Serena's daughter and a young weather, aka a neutered male. We are enjoying getting to know them!

From just-harvested arugula to arugula nutritional powder... swipe left for slide show! . As we have hit consistent 90-degree+ daily temps our arugula is starting to bolt. So... time for arugula nutritional powder! Harvest then rinse the arugula. Blanch it in boiling water for two minutes (this will reduce some of the oxalate, and preserve color). Immediately after blanching give it an ice bath to stop the cooking. Pat dry the blanched and cooled arugula and then load it into a dehydrator. Dehydrate for three hours(ish) till crackly dry. Grind the dried arugula in a spice grinder till it is a powder. . A teaspoon of powder is the equivalent of about two cups of fresh arugula. It is a true nutritional powerhouse. Great for smoothies, dusted into eggs, put in pasta, etc. . . . . . . #arugula #veggies #food #recipe #growyourownfood #organicgardening #organicgardener #gardening #gardener #organic #healthy #healthyfood #healthyliving #healthyeating #veggies #vegetarian #paleo #homesteading

Our snood harvest will be plentiful this year 😂 I’d also like to happily report that all the older meat turkeys no long look like herpes monsters and the younger bird’s lesions are starting to dry up. The end of fowl pox is near! Sharing for #turkeysnoodsunday hosted by my lovely friend Stacy @5rfarmoregon ❤️

🍊 cumquat marmalade 🍊 Such a long tedious process of peeling the tiny cumquats, then seqmenting and de-pipping each one. For such a tiny fruit there are so many pips! The end result will be well worth it. #marmalade #cumquat #jam #homegrown #homemade #minimalism #nowaste #zerowaste #noplastic #waronwaste #plasticfreejuly #rewarding #nature #fruit #kitchen #making #homesteading #selfsufficient #maker #family #countrylife #mumlife #rural #plantbased #vegan #makeyourown #savemoney #frugal #frugalmum

We love this girl so much. Luna is a Newfoundland and St. Bernard mix. She is 2.5 years old, Christmas birthday and 120 pounds. We thought once she was able to range on our five acres she would shed a little weight. But she has actually gained. 😂 we think she is sustaining her amazing figure with rogue chickens nests we aren’t aware of. She’s been the best addition to our family. . . . . . . #newfoundland #stbernard #dog #pnw #pnwdogs #pacificnorthwest #countrydog #country #homestead #homesteading #backyard

Today's fruit and veggie harvest... And our rosemary for infusing olive oil. We also want to make raspberry jam. Tomorrow there will be more to gather... I love it. Too bad I'm not actually allowed to eat this...but, I'm not a fan of blockages. 😕❤🌱 But, it's OK. We will just have to share! 🐛 #montanagirl #montana #somers #flathead #flatheadvalley #flatheadlake #myview #mt #mylife #findyourhappy #findyourbeauty #itsthelittlethings #gardening #freshfruit #freshveggies #homesteading #crohns #spoonie #ileostomy #ostomy #invisibleillness #pcos #fibro #mastectomy #ittakesguts #tpn #tubefed #spoonielife #montanalife

Let’s all have a moment of silence for my back the next few days... . . Green beans are coming in hard. Swipe to see the small area I covered today. 🙄 Tomorrow I will be picking most of the night to try and catch up. Tuesday I’ll be canning them! . . I love my @therooapron for things like this. I do like to shove it full, and sometimes the opening at the bottom allows produce to slip through. I’ve been toying with the idea of sewing it shut as I don’t use it to dump produce out. Then I could carry around a lot more produce and cause more back pain! ;) . . The roo apron is amazing and very high quality. I love mine. It has pockets at the top which routinely house my phone and pruning shears. . . #greenbeans #growfood #gardening #growyourownfood #growyourown #growfoodnotlawns #organic #harvest2018 #gardeningaddict #homesteading #gardenactivist #selfsufficient

Day 20....yeah, yeah I'm running behind... On my own photo challenge.....real life happens 😅 Abundance ~ I feel like abundance of all about mindset and how you react to things. Aside from the insane abundance of fruits and veggies from the garden, I've been trying to be more mindful of the abundance of giggles and fun to be had with the kids. It is rolling into late July and that means that our homeschool year will be starting before I know it. We are doing our best to take advelantage of the beautiful days and make a whole lot of memories. "The key to abundance is meeting limited circumstances with unlimited thoughts." -Marianne Williamson #summeronthehomestead #abundance #blesed #summerdays #homesteading #greatful #essencehomestead
