My little sweet potato harvest. ❤️ I pulled them earlier than I wanted, due to moving. I'm still pretty impressed. Two Thanksgivings ago I saved a part of a sweet potato to grow. I called him Groot Root. I had to move so pulled them early. I started these from one of those I pulled last year. So here we are again. I'll save one or two for next year. #growfoodnotlawns #strawbalegarden #growfromscraps #sweetpotatos

I just planted probably way too many cloves of garlic in these three bales of straw. 😬 I’ve never tried growing garlic before, nor growing in straw bales, so this is exciting!

Its fall garden time here finally!! I spent the morning gathering and weaving branches to form a natural trellis for the peas. The peas have been sprouting in my kitchen and my seed babies from @edenbrothers are sooo eager to get in the ground!!! Or...I'm eager to get them in the ground. Mainly I'm eager to get their grown up selves in my kitchen, on my table and in our stomachs. #blackwoodcottage #blackwoodgardens #fallgarden #strawbalegarden #cottagehome #washington #happinessishomemade #designonadime #adventureswithmylove #mydavid #thecottage #diy #doityourself #cottagestyle #cottagelife #cottageliving #cottagesandbungalows #pnwlife #pnwonderland #homestead #sustainableliving #zerowaste #wasteless

I had to harvest these squash a bit ahead of schedule due to forecasted heavy rains and fear of rot. The butternuts are pushing four pounds apiece so I’m very happy with them. The rest of the winter squash are just not ready, so send me good vibes that they’ll weather the storms intact. 😁⛈ All from the strawbale! . . . #sasquatchsquashpatch #butternutsquash #pattypan #marinadichioggia #strawbalegarden

Hazel comes at the height of tomato harvest time! This year brought an abundance of perfect fruit. And yesterday brought the cooler weather to do some canning. I love this whole process! It’s so satisfying to grow your own food and preserve it to nourish your family. I know I could buy tomato juice in the store, for cheap. But there’s no love in that stuff. And I had a cute little helper in the kitchen to keep me company. Gotta start them young! #canning #tomatoes #foodpreservation #growyourown #urbangarden #strawbalegarden

A Radish left behind? Or not! I purposely allowed 2 Radish from my first Spring crop to take up permanent residency in this bed. I’ve enjoyed watching their life cycle and am curious how they’ll fair through the winter and possibly onto next Spring....we will see❤️

The garden is slowing down. The pumpkins are getting ripe, and the sunflowers are now seeds. I still have a few green tomatoes, but they're taking longer to ripen. #growfoodnotlawns #strawbalegarden

There was no time for a summer garden, but nothing can stop me from my winter garden! Winter gardens are the best because there is no fear of the spinach bolting or the bugs eating the cabbages. Just pure perfection! And some items like kale get sweeter the colder things get! Has anyone out there ever done a straw bale garden? It's a new one to me, planting straight into a fertilized bale, but I needed something close to the house and didn't have time to build a cold frame. It's like planting into a little heater with the amazing compost developing inside. I'm feeling optimistic! Of course I'll cover with frost cloth later in the season. What are your favorite cold crops?! #blackwoodcottage #blackwoodgardens #cottagehome #washington #diy #doityourself #happinessishomemade #designonadime #thecottage #strawbalegarden #diy #doityourself #cottagestyle #fallgarden #pnwlife #pnwonderland #homestead #sustainableliving

Here’s another little harvest before all the rain. My favorite costoluto tomatoes were the star this time 😌 #strawbalegardening is definitely worth a try. We’ve gotten the most productivity since moving to the woods. . . . . #harvesttime #gardening #strawbalegarden #organic #organicgardening #tomato #tomatoes #peppers #heirloom #pepperoncini #costolutogenovese #fruitsandveggies #homegrown #fresh #growyourownfood #freshveggies #harvest #freshproduce #garden #wnc #woodlandgardening #raisedbeds #food #gardenproblemsolving

Starting my strawbales before Winter hits, trying it a bit different this time. I’ve added some of my finished compost and coffee grounds to the top and incorporated a bit. Also planted a cover crop of peas and buckwheat, starting to “green up”. I’m hoping the microbiological activity continues to breakdown the bale overwinter. I mulched with fresh chopped comfrey. #strawbale #strawbalegarden #straw #covercrop #microbiology #decomposition #compost #soil #soilisalive #biointensive #greenthumb #garden #growyourown #greenthumbdaddy

For those who have never seen a Bantam egg but are curious, here you go. This is a Polish Bantam egg next to a Medium size egg. We just keep a bowl full in the fridge and use them first. We actually don’t mind the small size at all. They come in handy👍

LIVER!!! Made this liver pate yesterday! Easy way to get pretty much THE TOP super food on the planet in you. -1 pound raw grass fed n finished liver -Just under a half pound of kerri Gold butter -Sauted med onion n garlic -Herbs and SnP -A few T spoons of pickle juice -1 T mustard -No wine no lemon juice Tweaked the recipe in the pic and kept the liver raw. After sitting in the fridge for a bit it was harder/thicker than I expected (all the butter) but still very smooth and spreadable.

It was a Farm workout unloading 50 bales and stacking them in the shed. It’s good to have a challenging workout it keeps me fit and feeling pumped! I find it’s much easier to rake out a pen of old bedding when it comes to clean up days. I know the birds love it too I noticed my Peacock was laying down in it getting all cozy. #farmworkout #farming #workingout #liftingweights #haybales #strawbales #farmlife #farm #urbanfarm #homesteading #backtoeden #beautifulbc 🍁 #mulching #gardening #garden #strawbale #strawbalegarden #petchickens
