I’m so excited to actually have a salad garden finally! Everything we need to make a salad. And just in time, because we were definitely lacking in the vege department on our camping trip this weekend!😄 What’s coming on strong in your garden right now? . . . . . . #mountainmama #thismountainmama #blessedmama #selfsustainable #westernmontana #wildflowers #foragers #foraging #wildblooms #growyourown #wildandfree #aquietstyle #seeksimplicity #liveslow #mountaingirl #slowliving_bloomandharvest #sustainablesprout #thehappygardeninglife #purposefulliving #cabinliving #liveintentionally #liveofftheland #womanwhofarm

We went a different route this year. I didn't feel like laying down the bio-plant-plastic. So, I went with mulch from the goat pen, cardboard and woodchips. So far it's working pretty well. Hopefully will add some much needed amendments. 🍅🌱

A few of us from the boats took out a canoe yesterday. We cruised down Regents Canal armed with a sack. Word in the community was that at the entrance to the tunnel before Little Venice, there was a treasure trove of fresh perfectly ripe blackberries. We were in luck! We harvested a mountain of berries. A beautiful addition to a bowl of granola with yoghurt. #forager #liveofftheland #upfullfamily #granolafunk #lissonwide

Education comes from many sources. Not just mainstream school. Indeed, it can be argued that mainstream school is restrictive, narrow, forces conformity, crushes creativity and squashes promise. This week, my son spent time with his grandparents. They collected eggs from the hens, discovered newly hatched baby chicks, planted flowers, harvested vegetables, ate tomatoes from the vine, bottle fed the baby goat, got dirty, lit fires (controlled of course) all outside without the confines of walls and imposed rules which are there to quell originality. My son struggles with school attendance. School gives him anxiety. This anxiety stops him being the amazing, vibrant, kind, considerate, funny, loving, inquisitive child he is. So this week he spent time with his great gran, his grandparents, his uncles and cousins. He was outside, he felt the earth between his toes, the fresh air in his lungs and love in his heart. Education is everywhere. Not just in the classroom.

FIRST CUCUMBER OF THE YEAR!! . Lol just because I volunteer at a garden that feeds the homeless doesn’t mean I’m an expert gardener. My poor little garden boxes are taking their sweet time, I’m not sure if I’m doing something wrong but the ONE cucumber I’ve gotten so far sure looked and tasted delicious. . . . . . . . . #greenthumb #gardener #growyourown #localproduce #liveofftheland #cucumber #getinmybelly #refreshingmorning #thatsdarling #healthyfood #simplelife #simplehappylife #minimalism #greenveg #healyourself #guthealth #fuelforlife #sweetlife #deliciousfood #instagoodness #fitness #foodblogger #wellnessjourney #nongmo #nopesticides #cleaneats #girlswhogarden #sunnyside #cleanvegan #kwawesome

We are loving all of the produce that is ready to pick from our garden each day! It's like a dream eating straight from the source. I have never tasted such peppery arugula.

The Friends of St Thomas a Becket Church held their popular midsummer concert on June 23. After the concert the newly completed composting toilet, which has been built in the grounds of the 13th century Church, was blessed by the Rev Ben Griffith at a short ceremony before opening for business. The Rev Ben Griffith conceded this was a first in his ministry as he read from the General Thanksgiving, suitably adapted for the occasion, before the formality of tearing a ribbon of toilet paper across the door. https://bit.ly/2LcChsV #compostingtoilet #composting #offgrid #offgridliving #selfsufficient #sustainableliving #sustainablelifestyle #beyondorganic #selfsustainable #liveofftheland #ecoconscious #ecolife #savetheearth #savetheplanet #environment #waterconservation #tinyhouse #tinyhome #tinyliving #tinyhousemovement

Well today is National Cherry Day! What better day than to take a wonder outside and find some in and around your garden. Did you know, everyone outside of London is said to live on average within 100meters of a Cherry tree. Get looking folks! This one was just on the side of our house and the cherrys are ripening! Better get them before the birds! . . #cherrys #cherrypie #nationalcherryday #fooddays #foodie #desert #cherrytree #winslow #bucks #posh #poshpesto #food #cherryontop #summer #summers #healthy #liveofftheland #discovery #forage #vegan #veganfriendly #pickme #pickyourown

Kettle corn! Finally mastered it without burning it! I think the giant new pot and gas stove helps.

Adventures are much more memorable with the right people by your side. Camping shenanigans with the best of friends who are truly more like family.

The kinds of things we do on our “day off” - Glen processing leftover beets from @the_garden_of_ with his new chopper. He made the starter for about 5 gallons of beet kvas, a natural probiotic beverage. Meanwhile, from the strawberry patch, I brought in 12 quarts of berries and got them in the freezer. Thanks to all our customers for getting on track with our every other market schedule, it gives us creative time to tend our little homestead. . . . #beetkvas #eatlikeafarmer #liveofftheland #stayhomeandtendyourgarden #fermentation #fermentedfoods

Day 27 ••• Thankful for a day spent in the woods with Jimmy! Taught him how to forage for wild berries and how to be a woodsman 😂 He fits right in with the camo hat and bushy beard 🧔 . ••• It’s been a while since I’ve spent time in the woods, but nature welcomed me with open arms today. From the red tailed hawk who kept talking to me, the 5 foot black snake 🐍 , and all the tiny baby frogs 🐸 hopping about - felt like my childhood all over again. ✨ ••• And of course - no visit to the farm is complete without a visit to my favorite Mimi! I love seeing how happy and excited she gets every time I stop by. Makes my heart feel like it could burst 💖 ••• . . . . . . . #100dayproject #100daysofgratitude #100daychallenge #grateful #gratitude #farmhouse #farmlife #woods #liveofftheland #woodsman #forage #foraging #wildberries #raspberries #blackberries #childhood #childhoodmemories #flashback #beard #beardlife #mothernature #athomeinthewoods #respectmothernature #grandmother #mimi #countrygirl #countryliving #nativeamerican #easternwoodlands

I’m seriously obsessed with my @the_leather_feather earrings y’all. 🙌 Someone gave them to me as a gift (Thank you!!!) and I’ve worn them every day since. ❤️ They are light weight and gorgeous and I’ve never gotten so many compliments on my earrings before! Go get a pair y’all!!! 👏👏👏

Last week I took my little love to a local farm to pick some fresh blackberries and gooseberries. We wasted no time making blackberry cobbler as soon as we got home, and last night we had so much fun making some incredibly delicious gooseberry jam! I love that my daughter gets to grow up in a farming community, learning where her food comes from and how it goes from the field to her plate. And she can see first hand how our hardworking, all American farmers continue to dedicate their lives to growing and supplying their local communities with delicious, fresh produce, despite the many challenges facing small farmers today. Just knowing that this jam came handpicked from a family farm makes it taste so much more delicious!🍇 . . . . . . . #usagrown #farmlife #farmher #eatlocal #farmraised #homestead #grownintheusa #smallfarm #womeninagriculture #supportfarmers #farmersmarket #kyproud #kentuckyfarm #delish #instayummy #hygge #livesimply #liveofftheland #gooseberryjam #homemadejam #instacook #raiseemright #farmingislife #agriculture #offgridliving #localfarm #naturaleating #wholefoodie

Homemade baked beans for dinner, the texture was a little firmer then the tinned ones we’ve always bought before so there was some grumbling! But they were delish. Next step is to hand make the sausages too! I love cooking and I love trying new dishes, but situationally I both have more and less time to cook atm... I also have a cold outdoor kitchen with minimal lighting after dark...

She’s nearly 87 years and still works every day sorting fruit in Western Australia! 💙 Her and her husband cleared the land by hand and planted fruit and nut trees and bred a few animals to milk and eat. They grow, make and use everything on the farm themselves, including wine (can you imagine a wine which is just grapes - no sulphites, yeast, fish bladders, egg, milk or preservatives - and yes that’s what they put in wine!) Nowadays they don’t make everything as they used to such as buckwheat flour and cheese, but I love their stories and gifts of many years of wisdom with natural agricultural methods, cooking, preserving, gardening, fruit growing and pruning, to name a few. I have learnt, and continue to learn, so so soooo much! ✨ Although I don’t agree with using, exploiting and harming animals for our selfish enjoyment and our taste buds (when we can just as easily eat something else) I have a lot more respect for someone who knows exactly what happens to the animals, kills them without sending them to a horrible Slaughterhouse and doesn’t just mind numbingly buy a cling wrapped piece of dead body part from the Supermarket - yes ALL animals have families and feelings and don’t want to die. ✨ When I’m on their farm it’s like I’d imagine stepping into the 1950’s - and they grow the most amazing sweet and juicy fruit for someone who is mostly fruitarian, raw Vegan, is like being in heaven! Although it breaks my heart how much fruit wastage there is as us consumers apparently only want fruit a certain size, colour, and shape - give me scarred, deformed, dull looking, wrinkly, wonky looking fruit any day that isn’t sprayed by the Farmer every week of their life with nasty toxins in order to give us what we think fruit looks like - yes that large, unmarked, shiny fruit you see in store is not natural at all! Please seek out and support your local growers. I’m helping these guys sell their delicious fruit (they don’t even have a computer let alone social media!) and helping people flood their bodies with the taste of what fruit is meant to taste like - as well as flood it with all the macro and micro nutrients to live an energising, fruitful life! 🍏🍋🍊🍇

It’s 2018 and the American Dream looks slightly different. The big house has been replaced with a … tiny house. Here, a shipping container that once carried cargo has been retrofitted into a home complete with a shower-equipped bathroom, bedroom and large windows; a 1986 green school bus that used to carry children now comes stocked with benches, a bed, TV, composting toilet and a kitchen. Oh, and it all runs on vegetable oil. https://bit.ly/2J04QHY #compostingtoilet #composting #offgrid #offgridliving #selfsufficient #sustainableliving #sustainablelifestyle #beyondorganic #selfsustainable #liveofftheland #ecoconscious #ecolife #savetheearth #savetheplanet #environment #waterconservation #tinyhouse #tinyhome #tinyliving #tinyhousemovement
