One instance were I will I let my kids play with their food! They had fun creating this fruit art with blueberries, mint, raspberries and blackberries🎨. . I’m so excited to actually get blueberries now thanks to our new blueberry trellis covered with netting. No more birds and lots of perfect blueberries🙌🏼 Swipe to see the trellis.

Speechless! Again sorry to remember that I and my sister @tara_the_gem_in_i had to collect cans at Brooklyns prospect park while my dad sat back In manhattan with his new family! And still today shows very little support and his wife restricted financial, moral or emotional support! As result I will not wish him a Father’s Day ever until he acknowledges his false teachings and lack of parental support! #proverty #provertysucks #truth #victorious #Perseverance #adversity #parentalabuse neglect #nothingeverchanges #hateful #evil #neverrepeatthepast #firstgenerationcollegestudent #godthefatherandgodthemother #itsnotokay #childrenfirst #selfsufficient #owenooneanything #forgivebutneverforget #gayandproud 🌈

The A frame is coming along! All the steel frame and most of the timber on the A frame was recycled.There's a creek just outside so anyone staying in winter and spring will be able to fall asleep to the soothing sound of flowing water. I'm about to start building the little veranda using all recycled materials and then the compost toilet, outdoor shower and outdoor kitchen. I'm excited about finishing and getting on with the next, maybe the next one can be a B frame...

*GARDEN MIRACLE AS I CALL IT...😊 💚 Sharing my DIY #cantaloupe 🍈 & #watermelon 🍉 'toy tub planter'... At first I made the tub as compost bin, then when I got my 'new real compost bin' I stopped putting stuff in but it was halfway full and dried inside already, so I added soil til full to top and planted all my dying transplants (swipe left to see)... that was 5.16.19 - a month ago! And today.... tadaaaah! Omg!😊😁😅 And few of my flowering squash, zucchini and cukes!🥒 💚 #gardenzone5b #gardeningisawesome #gardeningisfun 🌿 #veggies #hobby #gardening #plantstagram #gardeningislife #hobby #mindset #determination #stressreliever #joy #pride #happiness #selfsufficient #productive #progress #growing #plantlove #organicgarden #homegrown #growyourownfoods #sustainableliving #homestead #homesteadgarden #eatwhatyougrow #lovegardening #happygardeninglife

So back from a lovely little getaway, the brilliant farm where we stayed had this gorgeous little allotment, with their own raised beds and poly-tunnel for their organic veg growing. With some chickens and geese to keep watch over the lil patch! Very jealous that I don’t live there. 🌿🥕🌷🌳😍 • • • #farm #allotment #allotmentlife #plantmama #allotmentgoals #sunshine #plantgang #selfsufficient #garden #flower #veg #vegpatch #organic #growityourself #cornwall #green #getaway #gardens #gardensofinstagram

This is one of the realities of living in a remote area. Last week we posted a pic of Dan and the girls sitting on the rocks overlooking our bay with our cabin in the background. On Thursday, my brother-in-law, visiting from Ontario, took this picture from the same spot they were sitting in. This is the result of a lightening strike on the cell phone tower up on this ridge. With some quick thinking and hard work, Dan, Mike, our nephew Jerod and his friend Chris stopped the fire from spreading using shovels and axes. A well-timed torrential downpour and the GNWT Ministry of Natural Resources finished putting the fire out with a wildfire ground crew and helicopter (no city fire department out here folks). Very thankful to say that all are safe.

I've been procrastinating on drawing attention to our first vlog (links in bio).. Not because this one is particularly vulnerable, but because I intend to get pretty raw on this channel in the future.. ⠀ ⠀ My #selfjourney has exploded the past couple years, in every possible way! Emotionally, spiritually, parenting wise.. and so much more.. ⠀ ⠀ Our dream #lifegoals , that we poured our heart and soul into for the last decade - we actually achieved them.. But it didn't feel like we expected.. It led me to realise that I'm not sure who's life I was living into, but it sure as hell wasn't mine! It no longer resonated.. ⠀ ⠀ So we're switching it up.. ALL of it!! We're selling our "dream" #sustainablehome (it's too big for us).. Leaving our #selfsufficient #edibleandmedicinalgarden (we want a bigger one!).. Leaving our #Montessori school, and switching education paradigms (to #unschooling ).. Leaving community, friends and family.. Leaving our home city... Starting new career paths.. Transforming the way we parent.. Changing the way we relate to #emotions... And learning to make decisions from #intuition , not fear, while teaching our kids to do the same.. We're now even selling the one thing we thought was going to stay constant - our #PriusV ! (cos apparently it can't legally be flat towed)... ⠀ ⠀ No aspect of life left unturned!! The universe clearly has BIG plans for us.. It's scary, but also exciting, and feels so right!⠀ ⠀ There's SO many angles I intend to explore our major life transitions from, but this first vlog is focussed on the practical side, of finding our next home.. An #RVmotorhome , which we will live and travel Australia in, as a family of four..⠀ ⠀ WATCH our first vlog: https://youtu.be/BMJ6ksPr7Qk (copy / paste, or clickable link in bio)⠀ ⠀ SUBSCRIBE to our YouTube channel to follow our journey: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCLzSVVFcpuphqPPt1ncrW8Q (copy / paste, or clickable link in bio)⠀ ⠀ #lifetransitions #rvfamily #roadtrip #vlog #youtube #familyvlog #creativity #selfexpression #lifechanges #intuitivejourney #trustyourgut #resonatewithyoursoul #feelthefear (do it anyway) #findinghappiness #scary #exciting #courage #followus #consciousrainbow

10 seconds after I had entered into the forest I spotted some Fomes fomentarius mushrooms. I wasn’t even going to forage but my heart lead me out of the city in my ballet flats and long skirt with no gears on. I managed to find a nail filer in my bag and successfully removed a small mushroom. 😜 . I keep bumping into this polypore mushroom the last year or so. This is definitely my medicinal mushroom. It’s so good for so many alignments and a great immune booster. Unfortunately you can’t eat the mushroom itself as it is very woody and in-chewable. But a decoction of it tastes wonderful. It can even replace vegetable broth! All you need is some elbow grease to slice the mushroom up. . . . #fomesfomentarius #earthmedicine #makeyourownfood #medicinalmushroom #polypore #polypores #hoofmushroom #amadou #plantmedicine #herbs #herbalism #herbalife #holistic #naturopathystudent #naturopathy #forest #forestfood #wildfood #wildfoodlove #slowlife #mindbodysoul #slowfood #walkingonthewildside #shrooms #foraging #harvest #selfsufficient #plantremedies #justtobe #beinthenow

🌱 Did you know!? ⠀ ⠀ Soaking homegrown lettuce in ice water after harvest:⠀ • Helps it crisp up 🥗 ⠀ • Rinses out hard to get to dirt⠀ • Drowns out any little pests⠀ ⠀ 🥬 We harvested an ENTIRE sink full of mixed salad greens, kale and spinach this morning! I don’t know if we’ll be able to eat this all 🤪⠀ ⠀ We’ve been away from home for the past four days (you’ll know if you’ve seen my stories) and I returned to a lettuce bed out of control and in need of a haircut ✂️⠀ ⠀ 🐛 We also found aphids and a handful of cabbage moths 😡 here’s to hoping some ladybugs 🐞 and other beneficial insects arrive soon!

A friend graciously allowed me to pick as much plantain as I wanted from her yard. The plants were huge which made it easy to fill a 5 gallon bucket in a few minutes. They will be used for making plenty of skin soothing salves. #plantainherb #plantain #broadleafplantain #foraging #healingplantsandherbs #skincare #naturalskincare #wildmedicine #healingherb #apartmentsteading #homesteadinglife #youcanteatthegrass #dontkilltheweeds #beneficialweeds #plantainleaf #naturalremedies #plantagomajor #plantago #sustainable #selfsufficient

Day 15 of @mygardenthismonth , ‘edible’ and I’m delighted our new apple tree is already bearing fruit. We’re creating a mini orchard to the side of the driveway. We’ve kept it all slate in case we ever need to park any extra cars but I think once the hedging and fruit trees are established it will still look quite natural and green. So far we have, apple 🍎, pear 🍐 and cherry 🍒 trees. We’ve got fig trees indoors also bearing fruit. What other fruit trees are good for gardens? . . . . . . . . #mygardenthismonth #wildlifegarden #gardeninspo #rockerygarden #rockery #drivewayorchard #driveway #cornerofmygarden #gardendesign #savethewildlife #renovation #renovationproject #mygarden #kerbappeal #miniorchard #tinyorchard #homeorchard #smallgardenorchard #orchardgarden #homeorchard #orchard #appletree #growyourown #sustainableliving #selfsufficient #thegoodlife #frontgarden

Day 15 #mymonthontheplot June challenge is Gate/entrance Our project for this year was to fence off the flower garden and the kitchen garden to keep the hens out and to restrict the dogs from damaging flowers and veggies. My OH created this archway into the garden and we will have another one from the flower garden into the #kitchengarden. Finally starting to see the garden take shape. #smallholding #homesteading #homestead #smallholdinglife #homesteadinglife #rurallife #smallholder #homesteader #fencing #garden #flowergarden #growyourown #archway #selfsufficient #gardenentrance

Making elderflower fizz . Take 12 flower heads, 1 gallon of water, 1lb sugar a tbsp apple cider or white wine vinegar and 1 lemon, quartered. Put all ingredients in a bucket, stir well and leave for 24 hours, strain and decant into screw top bottles. Ready to drink in 2 weeks. The longer it is left the more alcoholic it will become. Periodically unscrew the bottle cap to release gasses (otherwise your bottles may explode!) . Video will be up on YouTube soon.

36 hour adventure Mix a uninhabited Canadian island, a wind blowing off the water that surrounds it, a dried wood stash from last autumn and chunks of pine sap I forraged from upstate NY last year and youve got a pretty awesome place to sit and enjoy the wilds of Onario. #bliss #selfsufficient #livingofftheland #edibleplants #eatyourweeds #frugalcooking #ediblemushrooms #foraging #nature #woods #edibleflowers #forager #mushroomhunting #wildfood #woodland #wanderingwomen #wildfoods #wildfoodlove #autumn 🍁 #naturegirlatheart #wildernessgirls #mushroomsofinstagram #mushroomseason #wildfood #mushroomsoup #mycology #wildfoods #wildfoodlover

Werbung . 🇩🇪 Ein ereignisreicher Tag geht zu Ende... Wir konnten heute zwei wichtige Punkte erfolgreich abschließen 💪 . Heute morgen hat Hugo von uns das erste Bad bekommen 😅 2 Stunden in der Waschbox und er sieht aus wie neu... Naja sagen wir wie 30 Jahre alt 🧽🧼 So ein geiles Gefühl! . Danach haben wir endlich unsere Solaranlage montiert (Foto 2). Ich hab den ganzen Tag auf dem Dach verbracht und Lena hat im WoMo wieder klar Schiff gemacht. Wir sind jetzt stolz Besitzer einer 320W Solaranlage von Offgridtec GmbH 🌞 außerdem haben wir einen Solarladeregler von Victron verbaut. Der Einbau ging wirklich super schnell und ohne Probleme 👌 Endlich sind wir autark 🙏 Der Urlaub kann starten! . 🇬🇧 An eventful day is coming to an end ... We were able to successfully complete two important points today 💪 . This morning Hugo got the first bath from us 😅 2 hours in the washing box and he looks like new ... Well, let's say like 30 years old 🧽🧼 Such an awesome feeling! . After that, we finally installed our solar system (photo 2). I spent all day on the roof and Lena took care of the interior.

The field shelter build has its second visitor... A European Common Frog 🐸 I was explaining to Tom that frogs make me nervous because they leap in your face without warning.

I was bought a new pasta machine for my birthday last month as my last one had given up and oh my, what a difference! This one is super smooth and gets the sheets really thin - and I didnt even go down to the thinnest setting! I let it dry like this in little nests and then keep it for a quick meal later in the week 🍝🍝🍝 #pasta #pastamaking #homemade #useuptheeggs #kitchengarden #selfsufficient #organicgrowing #smallholder #smallholding #homesteader #homesteading #instagramhomesteaders

Dryads saddle also known as pheasant back because of the featherlike markings was plentiful here! A tasty spring early summer choice for eating if you harvest the smaller specimens.. Add that to some japanese knotweed shoots and youve got a wonderful meal! . #selfsufficient #livingofftheland #edibleplants #eatyourweeds #frugalcooking #ediblemushrooms #foraging #nature #woods #edibleflowers #forager #mushroomhunting #wildfood #woodland #wanderingwomen #wildfoods #wildfoodlove #autumn 🍁 #naturegirlatheart #wildernessgirls #mushroomsofinstagram #mushroomseason #wildfood #mushroomsoup #mycology #wildfoods #wildfoodlover

The mothership of all oyster mushrooms was growing along side this respectable sized haul! We didnt harvest it..we had enough for our thanksgiving meal already..and I feel that harvesting only what you need is a respectful way to treat what nature so generously gives us..besides..can you imagine the amount of spores that thing will drop??? #selfsufficient #livingofftheland #edibleplants #eatyourweeds #frugalcooking #ediblemushrooms #foraging #nature #woods #edibleflowers #forager #mushroomhunting #wildfood #woodland #wanderingwomen #wildfoods #wildfoodlove #autumn 🍁 #naturegirlatheart #wildernessgirls #mushroomsofinstagram #mushroomseason #wildfood #mushroomsoup #mycology #wildfoods #wildfoodlover

Cranberry hunting! So last year the water was below the cranberry plants and we spent our time squatting down in the earth and foliage to find them..THIS year it was a case of swooshing your boots around..(without getting too much ice cold water running inside of them) to dislodge the berries from the plants and they floated right to the surface of the water..its amazing!! Next year weve decided..it will be us wearing our fishing waders...maybe approach from the water instead of the land.. not sure yet but its always a good laugh and a GREAT way to forrage ingredients for #Thanksgiving #cranberry #foraging #nature #selfsufficient #livingofftheland #edibleplants #eatyourweeds #frugalcooking #ediblemushrooms #foraging #nature #woods #edibleflowers #forager #mushroomhunting #wildfood #woodland #wanderingwomen #wildfoods #wildfoodlove #autumn 🍁 #naturegirlatheart #wildernessgirls #mushroomsofinstagram #mushroomseason #wildfood #mushroomsoup #mycology #wildfoods #wildfoodlover

The wonderful thing about social media is that you can make friends with people from all over the world. Case in point is @muskratsurvival from Canada whos video on teas from different wild berries and plants was the thing that opened my eyes to things other than mushrooms and bushcraft. Jim!! Your hat IS my lucky fishing cap..pike and bass have fallen under its wrath..
