Sneak peak! Fury's Funny Farm and Friends had some new handmade pottery dropped off just in time for tomorrow's Farmer's Market. McElmo neighbor, Barefoot Pottery, has been hard at work creating new pieces you're going to love! And if you think fall has arrived so quickly imagine how fast the holidays will be upon us!! These beauties are sure to delight. And paired with a bag of freshly roasted McElmo Canyon coffee, well you'd be the bell of the ball! Find us at the Cortez Farmer's Market tomorrow morning from 7:30am til noonish. #mutinyranch #mcelmocanyon #furysfunnyfarm #cortez #cortezfarmersmarket #farmersmaket #supportlocal #supportlocalartists #supportsmallfarmers #shoplocal #supportsmallbusinesses #locavore #mesaverdecountry

Scenes from a small farm...it's hard to believe 2.5 years ago we were still fulltime RVers. Most of the "memories" that pop up on FB are of those adventures. This new adventure looks quite different but feeds my soul. Maggie, Fletcher and Dot. Good farmers, who take seriously their duties as stewards of Creation and of their land's inheritors, contribute to the welfare of society in more ways than society usually acknowledges, or even knows. These farmers produce valuable goods, of course; but they also conserve soil, they conserve water, they conserve wildlife, they conserve open space, they conserve scenery.

Thrift Store Find! It's been a while since I've posted a fun #thriftstorefind since I've been trying to be "good" about shopping. (To be honest, I've mostly been buying used clothes since i dropped 16 pounds.) Anyhooo...I thought this little box would be cute for storing tax receipts now that I've got to claim my yoga stuff. And at one buckaroo it was cheaper than an ugly plastic file box. Turns out it really was made in 1965 by Enid Collins (hand signed!!). There are a few collectors out there too. A nearly identical one is for sale on Etsy for $80. This is too cute to sell...just cool to find out it's history. #mutinyranch #thriftstore #thrifting #vintage #vintagepurse #enidcollins #boxbag #apple #thriftstorefinds #whimsical #fashion #60s #60sfashion

It's after 11pm and I'm putting my last loaves of bread to bed. Even though I tried to plan well it ended up to be a late evening prepping for market. I have a new appreciation for all of the hard work, effort and dedication small farmers, bakers, artists and crafters put into their booths at Farmer's Markets across the world. It's not easy...even if you absolutely love what you're doing. It's long hours whether you're baking, painting, carving, growing, nurturing, planting, irrigating, planning, fighting off grasshoppers or blight or bloat or hornworms or nest invaders...it's trips to the grocery store, feed store or other local farmers to gather ingredients or feed or bedding or supplies. It's mending fences, securing gates, obtaining more bake ware, replacing worn paint brushes, and gas money too. Many pay retail prices to create something new to sell...like bread baked with local ingredients but also add love, care and, dare I say, pride. Others trade goods or labor (blood sweat and tears) to save money but in exchange for precious time (which is more valuable?) all to bring delights for the taste buds or eyes to your local farmer's markets. So if you wonder why that loaf of homemade bread costs more than that mass produced, machine produced 99 cent pseudo loaf at the grocery store ask yourself which is full of care and love (and JUST baked) and which is full of mystery ingredients and already a week (or more) old. Apply that to every offering...the meat hand raised and pastured, the coffee mug made by hand, the truly free range eggs, the one of a kind painting or bracelet, the hand spun yarn, all of it. HOW you spend your money speaks volumes about your character...and it's louder than all those Facebook memes people love to spread. Spread the love instead. ♡♡♡ #mutinyranch #sustainable #Permaculture #garden #gardening #abundance #mcelmocanyon #farmlife #homestead #farmlet #farmersmarket #cortezfarmersmarket #supportlocal #supportsmallfarmers #shoplocal #buylocal #supportartisans

Breakfast from the garden! Man, the kale has been fantastic, even with our super hot summer. It's been growing in the grow tunnel all year and still looks fantastic. The kale is accompanied by some lovely Thai basil (my fav), a little eggplant, a Serrano pepper and an Armenian cucumber. The purple flowers are alfalfa. I sliced the cuke and put it in pickle brine. Ate the radish immediately and then sauteed the rest and topped with farm eggs. Mmmmm. #mutinyranch #sustainable #Permaculture #garden #gardening #abundance #mcelmocanyon #farmlife #homestead #farmlet #growyourownfood #eattherainbow #homegrown

Sometimes i take a break from baking and help get other projects done. Yesterday we fenced in this lovely volunteer squash plant (might be pumpkin??) because the chickens were starting to destroy the fruit. Found two volunteer tomatoes in the vines as well. We also got some shade fabric and i "sewed" it over part of the chicken run (i used baling wire as the needle and baling twine as the thread). Now the chickens will enjoy a bit more shade and protection from the snow (if we get any this year!!). Of course they have their coop and the protected underside of the coop too but this gives them more space if we need to keep them contained. #mutinyranch #sustainable #Permaculture #chickens #backyardchickens #farmlife #farmlet #garden #gardening

One of our main objectives for getting off the road (we traveled fulltime for 4 years), and for choosing Cortez as our home, was to actually live in a place that could provide us with locally raised & grown food. We also wanted to support small farms with sustainable practices who gave back to their community. We scored big time. Baking 20-25 loaves of bread by myself (every week) isn't the easiest task but it is a labor of love. It provides me a creative outlet and a way to incorporate locally grown or made products into my breads. I've used herbs grown by our middle school students @montezuma_school_to_farm and blue cornmeal grown on the Ute Reservation. My latest experiments for Saturday's Farmer's Market (hopefully) will include more blue cornmeal, locally grown chili peppers (roasted at our very own market!!), and @wildedgebrewing Coffee Stout (made from locally roasted #fahrenheitcoffeeroasters in Mancos which is cold brewed by Cortez's own #piemakerbakery and then turned into beer by WildEdge). As always, I use locally grown wheat milled right in Cortez at #cortezmillingcompany as well as local fruit for my sourdough starter (currently McElmo Canyon peaches and apricots). #mutinyranch #sourdough #montezumacounty #sustainable #Permaculture #diversity #buylocal #supportsmallfarms #supportsmallbusinesses #supportyourlocalfarmer #spendwisely #keepthemoneyinyourcommunity #cortez #cortezfarmersmarket #mesaverdecountry

Playing with a darker roast to satisfy some customer requests. This is an organic Mexico Chaipas and will be available at the Cortez Farmer's Market THIS Saturday from 7:30-11am (or until sold out). I'll have samples of this roast...along with lots of sourdough varieties for your morning nibbles. Come taste (and maybe even purchase) at the Fury's Funny Farm & Friends booth. There will be all kinds of goodies including fresh produce, locally made pottery, spices, breads, herbs and friendly folks. #mutinyranch #coffee #homeroastedcoffee #mexicochaipas #darkroast #cuppa #coffeesnob #farmersmarket #supportlocal #buylocal #mesaverdecountry #cortezfarmersmarket #cortezco #montezumacounty

It's that time...7am feeding of the starter...last feeding before it gets turned into bread for Saturday's Farmer's Market. Swipe left to see my two new baking toys...a "pizza" stone and a vintage Wagner Drip Drop Baster. The roasting pan was a #thriftstorefind I acquired yesterday for $4.50. EBay has this model listed for $80+. Hoping to have some fabulous bread photos tomorrow!! #mutinyranch #sourdough #baker #baking #thriftstore #farmersmarket

It's a sourdough sweep! Well, there's a ribbon in there for gluten-free yeast bread and gooseberry elderflower jam too but mostly sourdoughs. We dont have to mention the lack of contestants. It was still hard work, excellent breads and a trip outside of my comfort zone. And the ribbons look nice above my stove...so there. Come sample this AWARD WINNING bread Saturdays (7:30-11am) at the Cortez Farmer's Market (look for the Fury's Funny Farm & Friends booth). And at the Third Thursday Farmer's Market on August 16 (5-8pm). #mutinyranch #mutinykitchen #baker #baking #sourdough #wildyeast #amajoraward #cortezfarmersmaket #thirdthursday #cortez #montezumacountyfair #awardwinning #bake

We had another exceptional Farmer's Market yesterday. A nice cool morning was welcomed with hot air balloons floating overhead as the Cortez Rendezvous Balloon Event got under way. Yours truly sold 21 loaves of sourdough bread (all various "flavors"). Fury's Funny Farm's kale was a bit hit and their artisan bread was amazing! If you didn't know, there are Milk Shares available!! Yes, farm fresh raw milk from A2 cows...these cows are lovingly cared for, hand milked and grass fed. Choose between milk, homemade yogurt, butter or a combination. Taste (and feel) the difference. Support a local farmer! Why buy milk shipped from who knows where, from sad cows owned by big ol' corporations who don't share fair profits with anyone? You can't get more local than this! Keep your $$ local. Shop at Farmer's Markets. Buy from local farmers. Get to know where your food really comes from and experience how much better it is when grown with love. #mutinyranch #farmersmarket #bread #coffee #shoplocal #supportlocal #supportsmallfarms #keepyourdollarslocal #rawmilk #sourdough #homeroastedcoffee #cortez #cortezfarmersmarket #mesaverdecountry #montezumacounty #swcolorado #fourcorners

Have I mentioned how awesome our neighbors are? Like, ALL of them. Today I've been able to do all of my baking outside in my old Roper over because my sweet neighbors gifted us a stove!! Clark, my personal contractor and handsome husband, took our 1980's hoopty stove and hooked it up in the #outdoorkitchen so i could bake for the Farmer's Market. The new-to-us stove looks so fancy in our indoor kitchen. Here's the first loaves baked outside...Chocolate Cinnamon Sourdough Twists. Lots more baking to do as you can see!! #mutinyranch #sourdough #mutinykitchen #baker #baking #wildyeast #farmersmarket #cortezfarmersmaket #swcolorado #fourcorners #homemade #bake #bread

Well, I don't know which is worse, not winning anything because the competition was so good or winning it all because no one else entered. I basically beat myself...or lost to myself depending on how you look at it. The good news is I got lots of feedback from the judge(s) and my gluten-free loaf earned 95 points (out of 100). I also managed to get two "champion" ribbons in the same category (maybe one is for the subcategory-main: yeast breads, sub: sourdough). It's been a fun experience and i entered in a rush with only a day or two to prep and bake. It's inspired my to hone my skills, work on my scoring and learn stenciling. Maybe now I can advertise my breads as "Award Winning"?!?! Haha! #mutinyranch #sourdough #mutinykitchen #countyfair #montezumacountyfair #cortez #swcolorado #mesaverdecountry #community #homemade #baking #baker #wildyeast

I took the plunge, stuffed down the self-doubt and stepped waaaaayyyy outside of my comfort zone today. I entered 6 different loaves of bread (sourdoughs and a gluten-free loaf) and one jar of jam at the county fair. Honestly, it's more about immersing myself in this wonderful community and really making it our "hometown" than winning awards (although I'm not opposed to ribbons!!!). Wish me luck!!! #mutinyranch #sourdough #montezumacounty #montezumacountyfair #mesaverdecountry #cortez #swcolorado #fourcorners #mutinykitchen #countryfolk

So you guys know I love to DIY things but these spice blends might be the best ever just as they are. I bought a variety to sample and I love them all. They gluten-free, non-GMO, contain no preservatives or MSG. They're kosher and many are vegan. Paleo/Keto friendly too! But no matter what your diet they are delicious. I'll be sending them out to family for Christmas!! Shhh. I'm not getting paid to tell you about this and no one asked me to either but I am.using Flavor God's referral program. You'll get $5 off your order if you use my coupon code LYNNBONECP6H (note that i may also earn a reward if you order but it does not affect your pricing).

Pre-bake...fingers crossed these beauties turn out! The first is a sourdough twist filled with walnuts and apricot jam made from Fury's Funny Farm fruit. The second is aged Gouda with chives from our local Tierra Madre Herbs (Matt Keefauver of Southwest Open School).

Mutiny Ranch Experimental {Outdoor} Kitchen: "BBQ" Sourdough. I grilled this loaf on the old, secondhand bbq. Heated to 475º...inside a heated dutch oven. Pros: didn't heat the house up to 5 gazillion degrees, got exceptional "oven/grill spring", took less time to bake. Cons: the bottom got too done. Okay, okay, it's a little burnt. I vow to correct this since it's a cool way to "bake". #mutinyranch #mutinykitchen #sourdough #grill #grilling #bbq #outdoorkitchen #outdoorbaking #wildyeast #bake #baking #baker #bluebirdflour #highaltitudebaking

Mutiny Farm Garden: Some things struggle, some die off completely and some flourish. All bring wonder and amazement. A tiny seed becomes a plant that bears fruit and more tiny seeds. How can you not be humbled by this miracle? 1- Arugala flower (letting it go to seed so i can save them for later plantings) 2- Zucchini grown from seed 3- Cucumbers awash in hundreds of flowers (potential!!!) 4- Squash Flower (i failed to label...could be bird house gourds could be butternut or patty pan???) 5- Max Gold Zucchini 6- Peppers starting to flower 7- Ginger...first harvest!!! 8- Mint- growing wild on our property 9- Alpine strawberries started from tiny seeds #mutinyranch #sustainable #Permaculture #garden #gardening #abundance #mcelmocanyon #farmlife #homestead #farmlet #growyourownfood

You're local farmers, bakers, roasters and artist put in a lot of blood, sweat and tears into their craft. But more importantly is the love of the land, the craft and the journey to produce something from their own hands. Today Mutiny Ranch is busy baking breads and roasting coffee for the Farmer's Market tomorrow in Cortez. Look for the Fury's Funny Farm and Friends booth. We'll have farm fresh produce, delicious homemade baked goods. Fresh roasted coffee, smoked spices, handmade pottery (like this gorgeous mug), jams and more!! . #mutinyranch #sustainable #Permaculture #garden #gardening #abundance #mcelmocanyon #farmlife #homestead #farmlet #farmersmarket #coffee #pottery #shoplocal #supportlocalfarmers #supportsmallfarms

"Everything that slows us down and forces patience, everything that sets us back into the slow circles of nature, is a help. Gardening is an instrument of grace". — May Sarton My humble garden (still so much to learn!!).

So the "weeds" between my garden plots got out of control. So i harvested them! On the left is alfalfa (i imagine our land was once part of a hay field) and on the right is plantain. The alfalfa has been hung in the outdoor kitchen rafters to dry and become tea. The plantain is drying on an old window screen to become lotion bars and bath salts. Notice all that mallow in the background? I'm going to harvest some of that too! #mutinyranch #sustainable #Permaculture #garden #gardening #abundance #mcelmocanyon #forage #foraging #skincare #diy #eatyourweeds #creative #maker #natural

If you judge people by outward appearances, which you then create a positive or negative story about in your head, you may never find that genuine friendship for which you've been longing. Friendship is important. Studies have shown that healthy friendships reduce stress and prolong life. Friends lift us up and enrich our emotional lives. They also give us strength. And here's an unlikely pair...a pig and a dog...showing us that friends can come from unlikely places. Different in more ways than most yet still friends. #mutinyranch #pig #piglet #potbellypig #rescuedog #friends #friendship #farmlet

Oh boy, the goose berries are just about ripe! I still have cherries to process and a house to get ready for guests!! Funny how winter makes you forget, even for a moment, how crazy a good summer can get. But I'm not complaining. Last year our late (end of May) frost and snow annihilated pretty much all of the fruit blossoms in our area. I only managed a small bucket of apples (most of the apples we left for the bear). Time to start canning! #mutinyranch #sustainable #Permaculture #garden #gardening #abundance #mcelmocanyon #farmlife #homestead #farmlet #gooseberries #growyourownfood #harvest #summer

I'd say Margarita is getting along quite well with her herd. She adores the goats and is getting to know Maggie (the minihorse)...they can often be spotted grazing just a few feet from each other. Margarita has even learned to tolerate the chickens (that's Chessy in the photo). Her first meeting with the chickens almost ended in tragedy as she showed us just how well a donkey can stomp something to smithereens. Luckily J.Lo got away. But all is well in the pasture now. #mutinyranch #sustainable #Permaculture #diversity #farmlet #farmlife #ranch #homestead #donkey #goat #farmher #mcelmocanyon #denkai

A small harvest for breakfast...a few leaves of kale and beet along with some purslane (if you can't beat the, eat them). Going to saute these with some farm fresh scrambled eggs. My neighbor has a plethora of lambs quarters on his property...I have none. I'm headed over later to harvest some as a spinach replacement...and even steal a few plants. I've planted Malabar Spinach (a perennial spinach tasting vining plant) but they're still just tiny sedlings, so the lamb's quarters will be a nice filler. #mutinyranch #sustainable #Permaculture #garden #gardening #abundance #mcelmocanyon #farmlife #homestead #forage #foraging #purslane #eatyourweeds #growyourownfood

Looking sexy in those waders! We're attempting to seal our pond with PAM (polyacrylamide) which we got from the High Desert Conservation District.

More Trees! Last night, with the invaluable help of our neighbor Paul, we planted 2 Northern Catalpa trees on our property. Hopefully these trees will grow fast and offer much needed shade on the western facing side of our house. They're such beautiful trees and hardy to zone 5 (we're 6b). And one is blooming!!!Thanks to Cliffrose Garden Center for advice on the trees (and a great discount for Rix Pix). #mutinyranch #Permaculture #garden #shadetrees #catalpa #trees #Cliffrose #cortez #supportlocal #shoplocal #buylocal

Someone had a bad day. Fletcher got neutered today (and de-loused and wormed). We made sure he had a fun morning of mud baths, weed eating and waffles before he went to the vet.

Brought this guy home yesterday to see if he's a good fit for the rest of the family. He's a rescue from the reservation in Towaoc. He came in dragging a 20' chain which was wrapped around his neck. He's Pyrenees and cattle dog as far as we know. About a year old. And such a sweet boy. #mutinyranch #rescuedog #farmlife #farmdog #Pyrenees
