"The PDC was a breath of fresh air for me because it made tangible all of the philosophies I hold dear to me. Having a collaborative group of like-minded people made my experience exceptional. Everyone brought very unique perspectives and outlooks on the material learned."

Omg! Our first watermelon! Sadly it fell off the vine and was not ripe. Thankfully there will be several more.

Feeling immense gratitude for all my family and friends over the past few days. I am realizing more and more how important and amazing these relationships are. ◽️ Grateful for my #ICA , #XS , #Ateneo , and other college friends. I’ve known most of my ICA friends since I was 4 and that’s pretty darn amazing. And I still keep in touch with a lot of them, as well as my college friends 💕 ◽️ Grateful for the people I grew up with- the families who I spent every year with at the beach in #Batangas , our family friends who were a constant in my family’s lives. Grateful for the friends I met during my ice skating years. Grateful for my #flickr friends and the friends I’ve met online. Grateful for all the people I met since I moved here over a decade ago- for the very few but true, genuine, and honest connections. ◽️ To all my family and friends, I appreciate you! 💗 I am thankful for all the time we’ve spent together, and I’m looking forward to spending time with each and every one of you again. Hoping we can make time to see each other amidst our hectic lives. And to those that the universe has yet to connect me with, I look forward to it ✨ #backyardfarm #growingfood #urbangardening #urbanagriculture #gardentherapy #urbanhomestead

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

• I purchased this to try because I really want to add ACV shots to my diet but I’m a big scaredy cat about new flavors. Surprisingly enough, I liked it! Very light and refreshing. I may get a few of these to start. On a sidenote, this is the BEGINNING of my journey. I am starting at higher macros then working my way down — my carb intake before was likely in the triple digits. I have gained weight and ate all of my feelings about our move(s), and that is why I am turning to a lifestyle change. It will be a process. Be as patient with me as I’m trying to be with myself. 😊 We’re getting there! . . . . #applecidervinegar #bragg @bragglivefoods #bragglivefoods #acvdrink #growyourownfood #vegan #veganketo #vegandiet #urbanhomestead #simpleliving #eatyourgreens #veggielife #veggies #eatyoutveggies #plantbased #organic #thisiswhereigetmyprotein

I’ve had so much going on the last few weeks that I keep taking pictures and not sharing them! I feel like the garden didn’t get as much love in the spring, so everything’s been a bit behind. Luckily, we’ve finally started getting peppers, tomatoes, and cucumbers! To top it all off, Oklahoma has been experiencing a terrible heatwave, so right now I’m just trying to keep everything alive. Hopefully temperatures calm down a bit and we can start harvesting like crazy. #urbanorganicgardener #urbanhomestead #urbanchickens #chickensofinstagram #chickens #mygarden #gardening #organicgardener

• Made a salad for lunch with a few garden items, still not quite ready for some things. I added some black beans and corn I mixed up for the baby — but honestly she’s on a junk food kick lately too. (I probably would have made quinoa otherwise.) We need to be better. ⤞ spinach, mixed lettuce, cucumber from the garden with heirloom tomato, avocado, black beans, corn, pumpkin seeds, balsamic glaze and balsamic vinaigrette. . . . . #urbangardening #vegetarian #growyourgrub #growyourownfood #vegan #veganketo #vegandiet #urbanhomestead #simpleliving #eatyourgreens #veggielife #veggies #eatyoutveggies #plantbased #thisiswhereigetmyprotein

Turnips-pretty much the best thing I’ve harvested from the garden this year, and I don’t even like them very much! 🙈😭 North Texas gardeners, what are your secrets? How do you stop the heat from stunting your plants/preventing fruit from setting? Is this a nutrient problem? And WHERE are all the pollinators?! 🐝 😫 . . . . . #northtexasgardening #gardenhelp #gardening #backyardgarden #texasgardening #zone8a #dallasgardening #vegetablegardening #gardenmentoring #gardenproblems #newbiegardener #homesteading #suburbanhomestead #urbanhomestead #bees #growyourown #growyourfood #homemaking

Chicks exploring their new digs. These girls (they’re about 4 weeks old now) will live in the “summer cottage”, with exposure to the rest of the flock through the chicken wire, until they start laying at 20 weeks and are ready to start eating adult feed. We find we have few introduction issues this way. We had hoped to have a new batch of layers laying sooner than November, but our previous batch succumbed to a weasel attack in June. Needless to say we reinforced the chicken wire all around the coop (again!) #backyardpoultry #backyardchickens #urbanchickens #raiseyourownfood #backyardeggs #urbanhomestead #backyardhomestead #thehomesteadproject

Introducing Sister Mary Clarence! Now, let the kombucha brewing begin! I couldn’t find a local scoby starter, so I’ve been crossing my fingers hoping I could grow my own. Sister Mary Clarence started as sweet tea mixed with fresh bottled kombucha, and is now a full fledged Symbiotic Culture of Bacteria and Yeast! This weekend I plan on getting a 2 gallon continuous brew going and I certainly hope I don’t screw it up. I’ve grown quite attached to Sister Mary Clarence and I need to foster that working relationship! . Following @deannacat3 ’s lead - check out her masterful kombucha brewing and her thorough tips if you’re looking to get started!

Look what Blaine found in the garden!!! Monarch caterpillars!!! They turn into these GORGEOUS butterflies. Beautiful but pesky! They eat all the plants. I mean, look at our kale. You can be super sweet and relocate the beauties, or feed them to the chickens. 🤣🤷🏻‍♀️ I love butterflies but I love our garden and chickens too. 🤪 🐛 🦋 🥗 🐥

We live in a beautiful henhouse now (pic 1) and we really love it, but what we don't love is that we are doing coop training and are locked inside the house part for 3-4 days to show us that it's our safe space. Pic 2 is us trying to escape when the human comes to check on us. 🏠🥚🐔 . . . #chickencoop #diy #glam #glamgals #glamhens #chicks #chickens #babychicks #babychickens #backyardchickens #urbanhomestead #polishcrested #speckledsussex #easteregger #barredrock #goldstar #5weeksold #fancychickens

These corn transplants are starting to take off. Corn doesn’t perform well in cool spring weather so that makes it a good choice to follow other earlier crops like spring lettuce, spinach, radishes, beets, carrots, snap peas, and even new potatoes.  Transplanting the corn helps us get a quick transition from one crop to the next so there is still time for the corn to mature before the first frost. .
