Ci siamo quasi! La mia vicina di casa mi ha inviato questa foto per dirmi che le olive sono praticamente pronte per la raccolta. Aspettiamo ancora un paio di settimane e poi si incomincia, non vedo l'ora!🌱

Ancora sento in bocca il buon sapore dei fichi d'agosto, anche se quest'anno, in Campania, non è stata una buona annata, né di fichi né di altra frutta. Proprio quest'anno volevo farla sviluppata. Pazienza, in compenso, io e mamma, abbiamo fatto marmellata di fichi e fichi secchi per Natale. Li farò ripieni di noci e miele poi li immergo nel cioccolato caldo fondente! Sono una bontà!😋

Pumpkin updateeeeee. I have successfully pollinated one pumpkin. This one is the musquee de province from our August box. It’s getting bigger by the day. I can’t wait to sling it and then eat it 😈. . . I missed three of the fairy tale females. One refuses to even open and just sits there and stares at me everyday. It has more that should open soon though so I’m excited for that 😊. . . So far growing these in 25 gallon grow bags has been quite a success. Even the ones with two pumpkin plants per bag are doing well. I wonder if I’ll have pumpkin for thanksgiving? Christmas maybe 🤔. What seeds should I start next? 🌱 🌱 🌱 🌱 #pumpkin #containergarden #seedmail #plantmom #gardener #growfoodnotlawns #backyardgarden #permaculture #urbangarden #garden #gardening #thehappygardeninglife #greenthumb #subscriptionbox #monthlysubscription #growfoodnotlawns #grow #idrinkandigrowthings #homestead #islandlife #blackgirlswithgardens #urbanhomestead #zone10 #floridagarden #plantbabies #mint2grow

Spa night for our silkies and Aracauna who are going to their new home tomorrow. These four lovelies are terribly picked on by our big chickens and I just don’t have the room on our property to keep them separately. I am sad because they are such sweet chickens but they are going to live with a lovely work colleague of mine where I know they will be perfectly looked after. So tonight they were wormed, lice dusted, flight feathers clipped, nails cut and bum feathers tidied. . . . . . #worms #wormfarm #compost #backyardpoultry #backyardchickens #fresheggs #exbatteryhens #urbangoats #backyardgoats #urbanfarm #urbanhomestead #microfarm #growyourownfood #growfoodnotlawns #organic #freerange #suburbanhomestead #nigeriandwarfgoat #nubiangoats #mininubian #vegepod

So I invented a new dessert (or breakfast food!) tonight 🤷🏼‍♀️ I thought I had some crescent rolls in the fridge, so I went to make some cheese danishes (total lazy mom here 🙋🏼‍♀️ plus, my kitchen counters are virtually nonexistent so I don't have the space to make my own dough). • Anyway, it wasn't till after I had made the Danish filling that I realized I only had cinnamon rolls. Hmm. So I just hollowed out the cinnamon rolls, built up the outside 'walls', and plopped the Danish filling in. I also coated the outsides with a caramel glaze. • When they finished cooking, I just used the topping from the tube👩🏼‍🍳 Voila! • I already had one, I think I might need another before bedtime... • Also, if I can ever figure out technology and get my blog to finally start working, I might make this a post? I think I'll start a lazy mom's recipe collection 😂 • #thefarmersnerdywife #recipe #myrecipe #newrecipe #lazy #lazymom #easy #dessert #breakfast #cinnamonrolls #homestead #homesteader #homesteading #homesteadlife #urbanfarm #urbanfarmer #urbanfarming #urbanhomestead

What a week! What a weekend! We had a lot of fun with friends this weekend, but we also busted our tails on the basement project. The drywall, mudding, sanding are complete. We got some trim up, the door in place and a utility hatch in place today. @jdoms91 And Danny were priming the walls. We are tired. This has been a big project, and we are ready for it to be completed. The end is in sight. Overall, this was a serious work week: travel, reviews, reports, analysis and remodeling. Ooosh, fam. That’s a lot. I took a 2 hour nap this afternoon and am ready to collapse tonight. Tomorrow starts a new week with more interesting tails on the way. About this shot: I was out grilling tonight for a late dinner, and I saw the moon rising through the trees. It was casting an eerie light on the clouds, and I just had to take the picture. I think it is a good end to the first couple days of Fall 2018, and I will be ready to rock and roll tomorrow. How about you? How was your weekend? Did you get a lot accomplished?

Good evening! I quickly took this image this morning while sitting in my chair. We were enjoying the morning breeze through our newly opened windows. # Wilma in her chair - chops on the window sill, rear end and tail dangling off the chair as she enjoyed her view. # My bearded beloved next to his window, feeling the breeze as he sipped his coffee. # And me, enjoying the curtains being tied back and the morning light spilling in. # All was quiet except for a few slurpy sips of hot coffee. # We had our HVAC guy visit us tonight to finalize plans for the upstairs. We are finally getting heating and cooling on the second floor this week. # It’s almost like I can’t believe it is finally here. # Open windows and HVAC. # And my small family with me to enjoy it together. I am grateful. # May God bless you with an open window this week - and may you feel a cool relief. # #elizabethmaxson #godisgood #godslight #morninglight #thankful #grateful #blessed #quietplace #farmhousestyle #rescuedog #wilmathebarbersdog #myview #cornerofmyhome #sunbeam #lightandshadow #windowtreatments #antiquetextiles #cottagelife #reallife #furbaby #oldwindows #homerenovation #urbanhomestead

This week’s #putuporshutup2018 feature goes to @stephbeaudoin20. Thanks for playing along! September's #cantogether is 10 half pints of Apple Cranberry jam! It came out so much better than 2 years ago because I have canning instincts now! It's actually a jam and not apple cranberry sauce. Hooray! Recipe from @foodinjars , added a healthy shake of pumpkin pie spice to cut the sweetness and give it some warmth. Also adding it to @3pointsacres #putuporshutup2018 which is a super fun hashtag. Post something that you've canned with Tiffany's spectacular hashtag!

Changing of the seasons mean changing of the garden beds! Planting out starts of bok choy, pac choy, giant red mustards, golden streaked mustard, collards, red veined sorrel, a few types of kale, broccoli, cauliflower, romesco and Brussels! All with a fluffy little helper who better not dig them all up when I turn my back!! #willowglenhomestead #frontyardgarden #frontyardfarm #growfood #growfoodnotlawns #growyourown #dogsofinstagram #farmdogs #puppiesofinstagram #urbanhomesteading #urbanhomestead #urbanhomesteader #fallgarden

Mengawali Senin pagi dengan Bismillahi Allahuakbar. Empat ayam kampung dipotong pagi ini. Keempatnya punya warna kaki yang tidak seragam ada yang cenderung kuning, hitam, polos terang, dan bercak. Halal itu standar, Thoyib adalah gaya hidup. Standar tentunya minimal tidak bisa ditawar. Thoyib, baik , adalah gaya hidup. Sudah thoyibkah makanan yang kita makan, apa makanan dari makanan yang kita makan. Teraturkah tidurnya makanan yang kita makan? Pertanyaan bodoh yang aneh? Tahukah kalau ayam 'broiler' lampu kandangnya dinyalakan 24 jam bukan untuk supaya hangat, tapi supaya tetap makan dan tumbuh cepat? Susah tidur? hidup tidak tenang? Perhatikan makananmu. Maaf ayam di foto sudah di booking semua. Silakan PO untuk pemotongan selanjutnya :). #ayamkampung #ayamhalal #ayamthoyib #ayamhalalantoyyiban #ayamhalaldenpasar #ayamhalalbali #urbanhomestead #urbanhomesteading #permaculture #permakultur #urbanfarming

Yesterday’s #shishitopeppers harvest from one plant that has been my most prolific pepper plant this year. They are tasty, mildly spicy, East Asian peppers that are delicious served charred. Seeds from @gardening_kristi ! I don’t know why but all the rest of the varieties of peppers I planted just aren’t producing that much. I’m hoping we have a couple more warm days to ripen everything up. Also pictured is another week’s #harvest of Ashley cucumbers. Cucumbers always do really well in my garden and I have picked a lot this year already off only three plants. Perhaps they like that it is partially shaded and gets a good amount of water. #chicago #chicagogarden #chicagogardens #urbangarden #urbanorganicgardener #organic #peppers #growyourown #growsomethinggreen #growyourgreens #sustainableliving #raisedbedgarden #containergardening #homestead #urbanhomesteading #urbanhomestead #learningasigrow #plantstagram #organicgardening #womanwhogrow #healthylifestyle #vegetables #raisedbedgardening #vegetablegarden

Golden hour highlights a golden moment. As I took this pic, I heard a little quiet scurrying and playing. # I stepped to the side and see my BB sitting in his chair, which the sunbeam is splashing across its back. My bearded beloved is petting Wilma as he puts on his shoes and guards his socks from feisty fangs. # He had no idea I captured this moment - but I love how God’s light is shining on him in his chair. It feels very protective to me. # A beautiful day with an old friend, eating out, napping and now my two are at the dog park while I work on a project. Later tonight, HVAC guy will visit to go over final plans and should begin installing this week! # I wanted to spend the day in the garden, but the day got away from me. Evening is just too big-bitten for me to tolerate. Long sleeves, jeans, and chemical spray do absolutely zero for me. I get bitten right through my jeans and even have a prescription for my 100’s of bites (yes, no exaggeration) that I get all summer long. # So maybe, Tuesday will be garden day. I have gourds to harvest! # I sure hope your week is stunningly superior. Why have a good week, when it’s possible to have a superior week - just for the asking. God hears you! 😉🙏🏻 # #elizabethmaxson #goldenhour #eveninglight #sunbeam #godslight #thankful #grateful #blessed #urbanhomestead #goldenlight #lightandshadow #lifestylephotographer #naturallightphotography #farmhousedecor #farmhousestyle #cottagedecor #farmhouseliving #rusticdecor #barndoors #rusticfarmhouse #cornerofmyhome #nordicstyle #pinkchair #stonefireplace #woodfloors #homerenovation #interiordesign #simpledecor #ilovemyhusband #linens

Making applesauce today and I feel like my mom is in the kitchen with me. I am using her vintage food mill. She would be so pleased to see that I am still using it. Sure, the electric food mills are much faster, but this method helps ensure that I get every last bit of fruit. Plus this gives me a good upper body workout and it gives me a chance to remember all the times that I helped mom during canning season when I was a little girl. And one last thing...it still works like a champ!

Urban Permaculture at its finest. A Straw Bale home - together with its living roof and grey water garden - creates a closed loop system with little waste. Paw-Paw's and Helianthus Tuberosa's make up the beginning of a prolific food forest, and magical chimes make for a quiet respite under the willow archway.

Results! Kids insisted on milk chocolate (single origin Papua New Guinea) and I forgot to decorate the shells with colored cacao butter. But the shells are shiny and the caramel paste is nice and gooey. Easy recipe Salted Caramel: 250g Sugar 50g water 130g organic double cream 15g best cognac 35g best honey 3-5 g best salt Make a caramel. Once at your desired shade of golden brown, Add the salt and liquids (use a large pan- it puffs up when adding the liquids) Pour in a wide mouth jar and let it cool. Get drunk on caramely. Cognac-y fumes at breakfast. #homechocolatier #chocolatier #urbanhomestead #ganache #saltedcaramel #chocolateaddict #chocolateveryday @duchyorganic #duchyorganic #waitroserecipe

What a difference 10 months make! The top photo was November 2017 and the bottom one was today, September 2018. On the top photo we were growing mainly in pots with one raised bed of broccoli, an apple tree and a blueberry bed but these things were dotted randomly across the garden. Dedicating a corner of our garden to growing fruits and veg was definitely the best garden decision we’ve made! It’s still not finished obviously (will it ever be?) but I’m so chuffed with the progress made so far! #scottishveggiegardenprogress
