If you’ve spent any time with @selliottx , then you know how much he loves baguettes and brie. I topped this baguette from #publixbakery with brie, honey from our bees, and fresh figs and persimmons from our trees. . There are so many things I love about where we live - too many to list. But being able to pick fresh, organic fruit for breakfast is pretty high up on the list. Enjoying brunch outside in this gorgeous fall weather with my sweet husband is even higher. It’s a beautiful day - I hope you enjoy it wherever you are! . . . #freshfigs #baguettesandbrie #baguettesforbreakfast #freshpersimmon #backyardorchard #farmfreshfruit #fruittrees #figtrees #persimmontree #japanesepersimmon #sundaybrunch #fallinflorida #floridafarm #floridafarmsteading #homesteadinglife #slowfoodmovement #eatrealfood #mostlyplants #realfoodtastesbetter #elliotthousehoney #rawhoney #plantbasedfoods #brunchingitup

Clean out your fridge today and make an egg frittata. Sauté some vegetables, add leftover meat or mushrooms and a little grated cheese(optional) to egg mixture. Fry in pan until eggs set. Then place pan in oven to finish. This is one of my go to meals anytime of the week and it makes great leftovers for breakfast or lunch the next day. . . . . #simplemeal #gotomeal #frittata #eggideas #duckeggs #duckeggfrittata #graisefarmfood #breakfastanytime #farmbreakfast #locallysourcedingredients #makesgreatleftovers #homecookedmeal #homecooking #homesteadinglife #cleanoutthatfridge #eggstravaganza #eggstraordinary #chickeneggs #fresheggsarethebest

There’s a wooded area in the chicken’s pasture that they just discovered and they adore it! They spend hours back there in the shade digging for worms and grubs. Who knew chickens would love the woods so much? Also, Ethel is still recovering from her molt 😳. . . . #barredrock #bufforpington #elliotthousehens #girlsongrass #freerangechickens #naturalpestcontrol #homesteadinglife #floridafarm #floridafarmsteading #farmbirds #barredrockhens #chickensinthewoods #chickensintheforest #happychickens #freerangeeggs #chickenmolt

I would have never ever guessed that John and I would have to over come so many obstacles on this homesteading journey. There are many many days I want to give it all up. I will tell you a little secret/not so secret about me - I am naturally a half glass empty kinda gal 🍃 But yall how can I give up this dream, I can't because we know this is where we are suppossed to be. The most powerful tool I use everyday to keep pushing forward is Thankfulness. When I wear thankfulness upon my lips I notice that I begin to see the glass as half full and the sun shines a little brighter. 🍃 What are you thankful for today? 🍃 Don’t be anxious about anything; rather, bring up all of your requests to God in your prayers and petitions, along with giving thanks. Then the peace of God that exceeds all understanding will keep your hearts and minds safe in Christ Jesus. 🍃 Philippians 4:6-7 (CEB) . . . . . #gettoknowahomeateader #homesteading #atoolicantlivewithout #thankfullness #homesteadingmama #philippians4 #scavengerhunt #octoberphotochallenge #photoaday #photochallenge #homesteadinglife

And the last beautiful Okra flower falls victim to the frost. It's a shame. It seems to have gotten really cold, really quickly here in NEPA. Mike and I did another batch of hot peppers tonight, cleaned the property, went shopping and are finally sitting down (he is, not me. I'm cooking. Duh.). We had a super productive day and tomorrow should be just as crazy. More sweet peppers, replacing the chicken coop and running errands. We need some more winter clothing/muckers so Tractor Supply and Dick's tomorrow. I am so not looking forward to snow and cold. He also has to build the Grow Room so we can store the canned goods and start seedlings. Phew. Mexico in a month. Hell yeah. No Thanksgiving at our house this year. Hope everyone is having an awesome and productive weekend, ya'll!

A little bit of winter here on the homestead this morning! Even the cat was interested in all the white fluffy stuff! . . . . . Update on me. I am still pretty miserable, still unable to hear out of my left ear, which is driving me insane. Medication is making me feel pretty loopy and crappy. But I'm thankful for modern medicine right now, and hopefully this will clear up ASAP! . . . . . . . . #homestead #snow #snowy #wisconsin #cat #catsofinstagram #kitty #bearthecat #earinfection #hearingloss #hardofhearing #winterwonderland #homesteader #homesteadinglife #homesteadwisconsin

30 bottles of pinot noir bottled, corked, sealed, and ready to sit on our shelves. 🍷 The final product is divine. It has a smooth flavor with no bitter aftertaste. We couldn't be more pleased with how it turned out. It is simply superb. It also produces a nice buzz. 😆 Coming up next: Hard cider/Apple wine #winetasting #wine #winelover #winelovers #winelovers 🍷 #winelover 🍷 #winewinewine #wines #winestagram #winemaking #homewinemaking #winemakingprocess #homesteading #homesteadinglife #homesteader #homesteaders #diy #doityourself #homemade

It might not be #warmandcozy yet, but hopefully when it's finished this will be a nice shelter for the goats and Benson. Right now Benson and the goats all cuddle in a small three wall shelter. This will certainly be a step up for them. We plan to have stairs to the roof so the goats can climb and play. As long as the weather permits we should be able to finish up the project this weekend. #gettoknowahomesteader #threewallshomestead #threewallsfarm #goatsofinstagram #goats #goathouse #buildit #diy #ifyoubuildit @atablefullinthewoods @moderndaysoldways @lostandfarmed @mitzacreekfarm @growingjubilance . . . . . . . #homesteadinglife #homesteading #farmstead #sustainableliving #sustainable #green #greenlife #farmtotable #farmlife #farming #smallfarm #smallbusiness #selfsufficient #kyproud #kykicksass #healthyliving #countrylife #fiveacres

When you life with a chef you can't really get away with using bullion cubes. We use stock for everything and especially now that fall is here a will need lots of stock for soups, roasts and all those lovely, hearty dishes. Making stocks is a chore I often put off, but I always appreciate when it's done. #gettoknowahomesteader #threewallshomestead #threewallsfarm #chickenstock #veggiestock #chefwife #fallfood #cooking #foodprep @atablefullinthewoods @moderndaysoldways @lostandfarmed @mitzacreekfarm @growingjubilance . . . . . . . #homesteadinglife #homesteading #farmstead #sustainableliving #sustainable #green #greenlife #farmtotable #farmlife #farming #smallfarm #smallbusiness #selfsufficient #kyproud #kykicksass #healthyliving #countrylife #fiveacres

It’s been a rough week around here. Cat pictures make everything better. . On Tuesday night, there ways a coyote outside my living room window. On Wednesday night, one of my favorite chickens was killed and missing (the feathers were there for evidence). We are on heightened alert now and the chickens are mad that they haven’t been able to free range as much. . I know it is a fact of life when you are living in the country. It still sucks. #acreagelife #iowaacreage #homesteadinglife #sleepingcat #iguesswearegettingadog

Am I right?! : : My grandparents used to own a cute little Gift-Shop as part of their Farm business & sold lots of cute household items along with the produce they grew! I worked there in my youth & saw some of the household items and thought 'why on Earth would someone put that in their house-it's so ugly! I will never put anything like that in my house!' : : Well folks, all I can say is, NEVER say never. 😁Swipe to see what I just put up in my house...➡️ : : #neversaynever #liveandlearn #chickenmama #chickenmom #chapstickplease #thirtyflirtyandthriving #thisis30 #decoratingmyhome #homesteadinglife #motherhoodunplugged #thisisme #momlifekeepingitreal #postpartummama #learnasyougo

Once you get to know me, you’ll know that this is my happy place. Horses are my absolute favorite. Ever since I got the opportunity to ride one, I said I’ll own some one day. People tell me I’m crazy. They say horses are expensive. You know what else is expensive? Babies. And I have two of them. : : I can just see it now... The kids and I, taking a day out on our land, taking a ride on our horses. Enjoying the warm summer air, watching the lightening bugs, and enjoying the earth that God has given us. Living off grid. No electronics. No distractions. Just learning as we ride. That’s the true lesson there: The lessons of life. : : I long for those days to come sooner than later. I think about when Stephen and I hit Royal Crown Diamond, how we are taking the nearest exit to get out of town and start to build our homestead. That’s our ultimate life goal. Live free. Live well. Live abundantly.💎

Fall has arrived and we have experienced several frosts already, which means everything that involves gardening is getting "winterized". The rain water collection system has been emptied and hoses removed (before the collected water freezes solid), perennial herbs in the garden have been pruned and heavily mulched, and the compost bins need to be turned and moved so we have fresh compost come next spring. Plus, we live in Wisconsin, where it can be 80 degrees one day and 40 degrees the next day 🤣, so better off being prepared 👍. . . . #compost #composting #backyardgarden #lovemygarden #thehappygardeninglife #gardeninglife #gardeningisfun #gardenersofinstagram #gardener #organicgardening #organicfood #gardening #growsomething #growyourownfood #growyourown #permaculture #homegrown #homestead #primallife #homesteading #getyourhandsdirty #getoutdoors #getoutdoorsmore #homesteadlife #homesteader #homesteadinglife #countrylife #iamamodernfarmer #oldfashionedonpurpose

41 messy little ducklings! They went through that quart jar in less than ten minutes. I should time lapse it next time. Ducks are amazing mess makers. The most we have ever kept were two ducklings at a time. Quite the change! They are sweet and so very cute. 🦆❤️

Beds are emptying, hearts are filling. I have been thinking of the planning, the seeding, the transplanting, the building, the composting, the mulching, the planting, the staking, the weeding, the heat, the drought, the harvesting, the canning, the preserving, the sweat, the tears, the laughs, the cheerleading and supporting. It was an incredible season and we cultivated more than soil and grew more than food. Thanks to everyone who had anything to do with any of it. We have a big life full of big dreams and "bit by bit" we are getting there. 💗 #bitbybitfarm #backyardfarm #homestead #homesteading #homesteadinglife #canadianhomestead #organicgardening #organicgardens #backtoeden #backtoedengardening #organicveggies #fall #autumnonthefarm #tinyfarm #tinycsa #csa2018 #supportlocal #growyourown #raiseyourown #makeyourown #thanksforeverything

Apples and firewood! Yep, it’s #Fall 🍁🍂🍎! . . .Do you have any Fall traditions? . . . One of ours is to go to our local farmers market, find an apple grower, and buy a box of what are called “seconds”. Usually we arrange this ahead of time because they may not bring seconds to market unless they know someone will buy them. Sometimes you can even go directly to their orchard, so try reaching out to a local #applegrower. Seconds cost much less than the fancy grade because they have bruising or damage from insects. We don’t care because we use them to make #applesauce or #applepie. . . My girls love this tradition and start to ask about getting apples and making sauce as soon as the Summer is waning. . . We soak our apples in #bakingsoda and water before we use them because most apple growers (including #organic !) use many insecticides and fungicides and soaking them in baking soda solution for 15 minutes and then washing them will remove most of them. Although we peel these apples we feed the peels to our #chickens or we #compost them and we want to remove the chemicals before adding the peels to our #foodsupply. #iamcountryside #homeschool #homesteading #tastytreat #ilovefall #knowyourfarmer #buylocal #canningisfun #homesteadinglife #farmersmarketfinds

I still often have those ‘oh I so wish I lived in THAT tiny cabin, in the middle of the woods’ moments, thinking that life would be so much easier if I lived THERE. I would have so much time to read, to knit by the woodstove, to sleep, to go on hikes. I guess even when you are living that life, the grass is always greener on the other side of the hill. . . . . . #vermont #vermontfall #vermontfallfoliage #vermontbyvermonters #offgridliving #offgrid #offgridhomestead #homestead #homesteading #homesteadinglife #vermontlife #iwishicouldlivethere
