How many people told me I was wrong, "just let her lick her dead calf and she'll get over it" "she won't milk up enough for another calf" "she probably won't take another calf" "why bother? She'll get pregnant again soon anyway" it was against what everyone else said and even against the text books but I knew what I had to do and I proved them all wrong. Olive didn't get over it, she did come into milk, she was over joyed when I presented her with her new calf and within 24 hours was out in the paddock with her new baby by her side. Well Olive im glad I listened to my instincts and did what I knew was right, because it worked and now your broken heart is healing and we have developed a strong bond because you counted on me and I delivered. when I checked you today you walked up to me as if to say thank you and that made it all worth it. #cows #cowsofinstagram #jerseycow #calves #calf #farmanimals #onthefarm #farmlife #farming #farmer #farmher #nzfarming #nzfarmlife #homesteading #housecow #selfsufficientliving #selfsufficient #selfsufficiency #livingofftheland #maggielil

There are many steps on the road to self-sufficiency for our students. Thanks to this generous $2,500 donation from First Foundation Bank, our Success Center will be able to help with the important step of renewing their driver's licenses.

Ok, so this product was brought to my attention. None of the reviews are on actual use. It is supposed to give you 5 minutes of clean air in the event of a fire. From the reviews it looks like the instructions only come in korean. Has anyone used this product or similar? Thoughts? You can DM me for the product link #fire #firesafety #emergency #survival #survivaltools #bushcraft #backpacking #selfsufficient #bugoutbag #firstaidkit #zombieapocalypse #firstaid #shtf #urbansurvival #tactical #survivalgear #knife #survivalskills #everydaycarry #foraging   #textbooksurvival #zombies #facebook

Today, while Rosa was at work, I decided to install a new toilet! It was meant to be a total #surprise for her, and it was... however it was just as much a surprise for me! I was able to do it all on my own without the help of an assistant or "male supervisor"! Her reaction yo our new throne made it all worth it. Hard work with great results. And I realized what my back up career is... carpentry! #diy #doityourself #selfsufficient #plumber #plumbing #ididitallbymyself #houseprojects #update #updatebathroom #newtoilet #toilet #lowflush #elbowgrease #waterconservation #feminism #girlpower #proud #feminist #seejanedrill

Can we please make it very clear that LEO season ends on August 22nd? If you are born between August 23rd and September 22nd, you are a Virgo. Stop pretending you have LEO qualities, when you are insecure, dependent on your man and are working to support someone else's dream. If you were a LEO, you would have more drive and passion, instead... you take the backseat. #LEO #trueleo #leowife #augustbaby #leader #passion #selfsufficient

Verdurette - homemade vegetable bouillon made from alliums, greens, root veggies, celery, herbs and salt. Verdurette is used as a seasoning in soups, bean dishes, etc. instead of bouillon cubes or powder. It keeps well in the fridge for up to a year. The recipe will be in my Spring Cookbook! N x

Self sufficiency. It’s important to know how to do things. So we train our kids to do all sorts of different tasks. They don’t always want to, but then they aren’t always given a choice, either. And they figure out how to improvise when needed. These will be capable adults one day soon. #growinguptoofast #responsiblekids #raisethemright #ilovethesekids

During WW1 &WW2 Victory Garden Initiatives were encouraged as a way for families to support themselves (as all other resources could be used to support the war efforts). ....................................... 👆Checkout Link in Bio 👆 ..............................................

I went to all extremes to save little lucky, including milking a new mumma sheep that didn't want to be milked. Unfortunatly little lucky didn't make it and passed at 8:30 in front of a warm fire on a comfy bed. This sucks, we've lost 2 lambs in 24 hours (I think they were twins). this is the side to homesteading that I don't enjoy. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #journey #homestead #urbanfarm #farm #urbanhomestead #garden #gardening #growyourown #selfsustainable #veggiepatch #permie #permaculture #selfsufficient #selfsufficiency #journey #homesteading #homestead #organic #farmgirl #lovewhereyoulive #livingthedream #sheep #lamb #orphaned #reunited #winter #milk #rawmilk #sheepmilk

She enjoys laying on the cool and damp mulch to keep sane during this heatwave summer! We enjoy spending quality time with our animals, especially in nature, where they feel most comfortable.

#plasticfreejuly DAY TWENTY ONE.. My 3 week score sheet. With just 1 week left of #plasticfreejuly , I thought I'd check my original hit list of items I wanted to find plastic free alternatives for and see how I'm going...and then do a final push for the last week to see what else I can change. . So here goes: . All these items are now being bought in bulk: ✔️Dried fruit ✔️Nuts ✔️Flour ✔️Hemp seeds ✔️Spirulina powder ✔️Salt ✔️Tumeric powder ✔️Rice ✔️Coconut sugar ✔️Muesli ✔️Spices What I still need to work on: 😻Pet mince 🐶Pet liver treats 🐔Chicken grain 🐶Dog poo bags (someone suggested I try biobags so will look into that when I am close to running out of the plastic ones) 🐶Pet dry good Things I'm now making myself: 👌Biscuits (teenage son approved 👍) 👌Pastry (actually very quick and easy to make) What I've tried making myself that either needs lots more practice OR becomes one of my 10% compromise items: 😆Pasta (this was perhaps the messiest experience I've had in the kitchen 🤣. I'll give it another go but only on a weekend when I've got the time, energy and headspace for it!) Things I'm compromising on: Ice cream (now bought in a tub with a plastic safety seal which has to be better than individually wrapped ice creams). My son has suggested that I try to make it though. These are the things I'm just not buying anymore: 💥Frozen berries 💥Cheese (although I have bought fancy cheese in foil) 💥Vegan cheese 💥Muesli bars 💥Chips (this has been replaced by bulk soya chips) Other things I've done plastic free: Garden soil (I had some delivered yesterday - see images) Putting together a 'take away food' kit for the car - stainless steel straws, spare coffee cup, cutlery) I'm very happy with how I'm going! The main difference has been buying food at the bulk store. Image 1-3: various views of the Work In Progress veggie patch showing the recent soil delivery.

Dug up some huge radishes today! Working in the garden, on bare feet with the earth between my toes. Running into all the little creatures who are hiding in their homes. Just being surrounded and feeling connected to all the different vegetables, plants and flowers earth has to offer. It really is one of the best feelings in the world! 🌿

We went camping on the moor for a night this week. My husband keeps the packs as light as possible (I add some comforts, like pillowcases!!), but there is still a lot to carry for a family of four. This 9 year old wanted to carry his share and to sleep in the single tent ⛺️ on his own (normally a coin toss for mum and dad). Amazing to see him set his own goals and achieve them. He told us the next morning he’d outgrown his sleeping bag but it was ok because he put his hoodie on when he was cold in the night 😬. #mumguilt #selfsufficient #notracecamping #wildcamping #healthystriving #mindfulchildren #dartmoor #microadventure

What would be your perfect evening? For me it's this, a peaceful environment with amazing views, nothing but nature and each other for entertainment, with everything we need in our backpacks, and a warming fire to comfort us past sunset. Who needs TV, cinema, or mobile phones when you can watch the flames in front of you?! . . . . . #keepitwild #liveoutdoors #wildwomen #wildernesslifestyle #wilderness #survivalskills #camping #campfirecooking #girlswhotravel #travelgirl #travelholic #bushcraft #bushcraftwomen #selfsufficient #roamtheplanet #sphinxpictures #staywild #wildandfree #thegreatoutdoors #wildernessculture #roamfree #simplyadventure #wildcamping #wildcampsweden

Follow and donate to @survivalinternational Thank you for your service and spreading awareness. ・・・ Incredible! New footage of the last surviving member of an uncontacted tribe. We don’t know the name of his tribe or what language he speaks. His people were probably massacred by cattle ranchers who invaded the region. He survives because his territory is now, finally, being properly protected by the authorities, who also released this video. Please help us protect other uncontacted peoples at www.survivalinternational.org/uncontactedtribes – we're the only organization fighting worldwide to stop the extermination of uncontacted tribes.

Three recent stages of my sunflower. 1. Flourishing. 2. About to open. 3. Eaten by squirrels... 🌻 💀 😂 Nature is cruel. I don’t mind though. I should have known better and next time I will. These plants have plenty of flowers coming through so now I will begin the squirrel war and may the best Earthling win.

It's been a while but I've finally gotten back out on another wild camping trip. Tonight I'm camped alongside the Thames on the North Kent Marshes. It's a funny old place, you're so close to London and industry, but at the same time you feel very remote and able to enjoy the wildlife that thrives here. It's also Dickens country and I'm poised and waiting for Magwich to emerge from the marshland and order me to get him a file! #bushcraft #getoutdoors #kent #camping #wildcamping #survival #wilderness #explore #backpacking #selfsufficient #bushcrafting #glamping #brewdog #greatexpectations

☀️If this insane weather has done anything right, it's in producing enormous harvests (albeit more than we could ever eat 😉) !! ☀️ . 1) 🌱 Mangetout and sugarsnaps, we've been picking that amount pretty much weekly for the last month or so! 2) 🥒 Cucumbers, upon cucumbers, upon cucumbers!! 3) 🥔 Third and final potato harvest for 2018, Charlotte and Casablanca potatoes! Early again, but surprisingly high yield nevertheless ☺️
