This morning I (Athena) am up before the sun. Not for homestead-related chores. This morning I'm going in to get my employee health screen done. In our case, both Kyle and I enjoy our "non-Farmstead" jobs very much. Even after we are "Full-Time" Homesteading we will both likely still work in some capacity in our off-site careers. I'm a registered nurse and have worked in Cardiac, Palliative & Hospice. And now I'm very excited to have been hired PRN on a Women's Surgical Unit at our local hospital after what will be 9 wonderful months of full time stay at home parenthood. (I'll still be a mostly stay at home Mama). My heart as a nurse (maybe unsurprisingly) is in home health & I plan on eventually getting my Masters then doctorate in Nursing. Kyle has his Masters in Engineering (civil/structural). It will be TBD how each of our careers fit into our growing homestead. So for now, here's to "office jobs" that are enjoyable and (forever) finding the balance of work and homestead life! 🍻 . . . . . #registerednurse #worklifebalance #gardening #homesteading #plantpoweredhomestead #plantbased #veganicgardening #veganicfarming #veganhomesteading #thebirdnbeastsfarmstead #veganfamilies #growingourownfood #eatlocal #growwhatyoulove #alwayslearning #veganfood #plantbaseddiet #homesteadbloger #homesteadingblog #veganblogger #wnc #permaculture #veganpermaculture #homegarden #kitchengarden #biodynamics #northcarolina #veganfarmer #vegangardener #simpleliving

Hänger med min polare Håkan rödhake. Brukar dyka upp när vi skördar. Idag var hen precis bredvid mig å åt lite prylar från jorden. Vi har djur i vårt veganska jordbruk men inte djur som vi dominerar. Chilling with my Buddy Rudy Robin who always hangs out while we harvest. We have animals in our food growing system but not the ones we have to dominate. #rödhake #robins #villandsvånga #permaculture #permakultur #veganpermaculture #veganpermaculturedesig #antispeciesism #harvesting #veganorganic #smallholding #villandsvångaveganträdgård

Since moving 🚗 here to North Carolina in January Kyle and I (Athena) have been blown away by the literal abundance there is out here in terms of plants. Having grown up in Arizona and Southern California I have a LOT to learn. So many of these plants (& some bugs🐜) are totally new to both of us. We can see why local foodies and growers feel so rich in life and such a draw to do what they do here. We are also continually in wonder at the beauty we see every day--especially on our hikes! #ironweed #anewworld #growers #hikers #naturelovers #alwayslearning . . . . . "Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts.

"Why do farmers farm, given their economic adversities on top of the many frustrations and difficulties normal to farming? And always the answer is: "Love. They must do it for love." Farmers farm for the love of farming. They love to watch and nurture the growth of plants. They love to live in the presence of animals. They love to work outdoors. They love the weather, maybe even when it is making them miserable. They love to live where they work and to work where they live. If the scale of their farming is small enough, they like to work in the company of their children and with the help of their children. They love the measure of independence that farm life can still provide. I have an idea that a lot of farmers have gone to a lot of trouble merely to be self-employed to live at least a part of their lives without a boss." —Wendell Berry, Bringing it to the Table: On Farming and Food . . .

We got our simple garden fencing up 🤺 this weekend (swipe left to see) & some of the slope side beds framed with pallet wood for support. Ran out of pallets so Kyle'll bring more home tomorrow. Our beautiful Indigo Rose tomatoes have a lot of green fruits that will probably all blush at once. I'm excited about our Stevia plant 🌱 and our Tulsi plant is producing in abundance! We have been storing tons of dried herbs and teas away for winter. 🌱 🍂 🌱 We will be purchasing a number of additional starts from @forvillagers to put in our fall garden. They said the starts should be in this week so stay tuned with them if you're looking for high quality local starts for your garden. • • HAPPY AUTUMN-IS-COMING SEASON!

Fall is in the air already! 🍁 This evening we felt it so strongly. That crisp clean cool air and the subtle color changes all around. This will be our first Fall in our new state of North Carolina and somehow it feels so different from all other Autumns 🍂that have come before. Something soul-deep and spirit-rich and joyful is alive in the air. • • • Recently I (Athena) have been exploring warm drink recipes that include raw cacao or turmeric. Tonight I concocted a delicious blend of raw cacao, turmeric, cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, and a few other delicately autumn-esque spices, warmed and enjoyed with homemade oat milk on our front porch overlooking our joy-bringing fall garden plot. What are your favorite fall drinks and/or what are your favorites to plant your fall garden? • • • #gardening #homesteading #plantpoweredhomestead #plantbased #veganicgardening #veganicfarming #veganhomesteading #thebirdnbeastsfarmstead #veganfamilies #growingourownfood #eatlocal #growwhatyoulove #digdeeper #alwayslearning #veganfood #plantbaseddiet #homesteadbloger #homesteadingblog #veganblogger #wnc #permaculture #veganpermaculture #homegarden #kitchengarden #biodynamics #northcarolina #veganfarmer #vegangardener #simpleliving #foodforests

👏🏼Stage 1: Fall Garden Project complete. Yesterday we worked our butts off during the toddler's nap and into the evening getting the first 4 of 8 2x8 garden beds (half of total ~96 sq ft) prepped for planting. We hope to finish Stage 2 tonight. Then onto putting down a veganic soil concoction I have had to come up with in the place of traditional commercial compost as we need more than our small compost will produce this season since we just moved here to this property about 2 months ago (AVL in Jan). I (Athena) will talk more about what I'm doing to amend this red clay in a veganic way in a Farmstead Journal post on The Garden Project once it's all up and running. Swipe left to see the lawn before, measuring out the plots, the leveling, & our cheesy selves 🧀😁😀👨🏻‍🌾👩🏻‍🌾. Notice Kyle holding his rolling pin (he's the family 👨🏻‍🍳 baker and we are planning on eventually working up to growing our own grains).

Finished my PDC !! Before we said our goodbyes as a group we did this activity.. Each person has a piece of paper stuck to their back and everyone writes a little something to that person as a farewell. Here is mine, when I finally had a look and read what was written - it really moved me. Give thanks for Life - the journey, the guidance, the synchronicity and all the new friends and connections we make 💚💛❤ @burnett.graham @permaculture_uk #Permaculture #veganpermaculture #selfdevelopment #selfsufficiency #philosophy #approach #education

Cancelled jobs, appointments, meetings, and dropped everything this week to move plants from the long access pathway onto the land where they are temporarily being stored because the land owner has decided she is having a driveway constructed and said we need to have the plants moved by the 13th of August... With just a weeks notice we have been flat out at it this week, such a relief to have some helping hands today, thank you so much Tom, what a star you are, look forward to seeing you again on Friday ☺️ Photos of some of the many plants we have been moving this week. We couldn't move the 5 dumpy bags each with at least 1/2 dozen plus trees and bushes in all the way so we had to pull the plants up and replant them into smaller green bags, which will be more easily handled when we need to move them again...

🌿Homegrown tea! ☕️ A handful of Tulsi makes the heart glad 😁❤️🙌🏻🌿☕️ • • Grown in an area of ~ 4.5-5 hours of gently dappled sunshine ☀️. We purchased two Tulsi plant starts locally @forvillagers late this spring season and they are thriving. They came with buds on them which we removed and saved seeds from for next year. 🌺 We continue to remove the buds to encourage leaf 🍃 growth. This guys are planted in an organic mulch and soil mix that I (Athena) mixed from some options available on the quick at Lowes. In the future we plan to regenerate our very compact clay soil with compost, straw and other non-till means. If you've not grown your own tea, you should try Tulsi! Maybe even add a bit of stevia in the garden for a sweet addition to your tea adventures! • • Holy basil (or Tulsi) is native to the Indian subcontinent and other parts of tropical Asia. The leaf and seed oil are used therapeutically. Studies support its benefit for asthma related symptoms and blood sugar control in type II Diabetics--though this is in very specific doses multiple times per day. You can read more on the University of Michigan's Medical Research Website. ☕️ ☕️ ☕️ Typically most people dry it and use it as tea. It is SO tasty freshly dried and steeped in hot water with stevia on a cool morning 🏔 #tea #homegrowntea #teagarden #homesteading #homestead #looseleaftea #herbs #holybasil #garden #organicgarden #homesteadgarden #fresh #eatbeautiful #driedherbs #growyourownfood #homesteading #veganhomesteadibg #homesteaders #veganblog #homesteadblog #farmersmarket #veganicfarming #veganfood #veganicgardeners #veganfarmers #permaculture #veganpermaculture #onestepatatime #gardening #veganasheville #homesteadingskills

🍞 Do you have a homemade bread problem? 🍞 There never seems to be enough homemade bread! We love bread. Making it. Eating it.

It's still a wee bit dry so I'll be tweaking it again before posting the recipe...but stay tuned for that! • • {{~I like to really dial in any recipe before we share it...takes a bit more work but it makes a better recipe and is more worth your time to try...especially if it's your first time with a type of food or dish! ~}} • • 🍞In the mean time you can now see the Easy Sourdough bread and Easy Confidence Building Dinner Rolls on our NEW WEBSITE.

👩🏻‍🍳👧🏻Our 2 1/2 y/o wild child helped make our homestead's first batch of organic sauerkraut this morning! (Look at her very enthusiastic "massaging" of the cabbage in pictures 5 & 6). • 🎉 She LOVES Being able to help us in the kitchen now that she is tall enough and steady enough on the kitchen stool.🙌🏻 • This recipe was incredibly easy. I didn't use a krout pounder but instead massaged it in the salt in a big bowl pulling out all the water (did not need to add any extra brine) then packed it tightly (but gently) into the jar and under its own liquid with a muddler (for muddling mint and other things for alcoholic drinks 🍹). It was $5 as opposed to $35-40 for a true wooden krout pounder. I am sure there are benefits to using one...but for now, on a tight budget, this totally works! 💰 • • I used real mineral salt from our local bulk store. It has no added anti-caking agent and tastes delicious. • • I pre-sanitized the jars using my pressure cooker. Just open boiled. • I used these amazing and beautiful glass weights to hold the cabbage under the brine. These are made by a small family business and are very affordable. • Then, no need for "burping" with these amazing fermentation lids!!! Also incredibly affordable. • Once you have the proper tools you've sailed past 75% of the challenge of learning these skills that are new for so many in our generation. Seriously, if you've never made sourkrout or pickles or bread or, for that matter, a sawhorse or a wood slat wall or repaired a fence or built a bookshelf, just try! One little thing at a time. You'll find it gets addicting! Before ya know we will all be sharing pictures of us building our own homes!!! 🏡🙏🏼👏🏼🤜🏾🤛🏻 ••• • • Join us here, FB or on our blog as we learn all new skills and make the journey of homesteading as a family in the mountains of North Carolina with our daughter and 5 sweet pups 👧🏻 🐶 🐶 🐶 🐶 🐶 • • #mommyslittlehelper #chefintraining #fermentation #fermentedfoods #guthealth #homesteading #homesteadingskills #preservingfood #canning #pickling #permaculture #veganpermaculture #veganhomemade #veganhomestead #eatbeautiful #buildcommunity #homesteadcommunity #thebirdnbeastsfarmstead #sauerkraut

🌲We don't buy paper towels. This is a small showing of what has taken our paper towels' place. Dish towels. Many of which are from a thrift store and/or old as the 🌙 moon....some, were accidentally unreturned gym towels of Kyle's 😶back in KC before he got his own equipment for a home gym and garage space here. Now he can forget to return his own gym towels!🌲 Replacing paper towels with cloth towels does mean we have a little more laundry but the transition off of paper towels significantly reduces our use of paper products and our expenses. It is less expensive for us to wash these towels and air dry them than drive to a store and buy plastic wrapped processed trees to clean up our messes. I will say that in order to get god clean mirrors and windows paper still works best...so in this case we will try and find an old bunch of newspapers when glass cleaning is necessary. 🌲🌿🌲🌿🌲🌿🌲🌿 #nowaste #lowwaste #savetrees #savethetrees #reduce #reducereuserecycle #reducepaperwaste #veganpermaculture #mindfulliving #conciousliving #simpleliving #kindliving #gentleliving #thebirdnbeastsfarmstead #homestead #homesteading #veganpermaculture #homesteadingkids #thebirdnbeastsfarmstead #homesteadinthemaking

🍎 The only bits of our apples left over after being eaten. The seeds will be saved and planted (I like the surprise of seeing what type of apple tree we might get**) & the rest goes to the compost and back into the garden eventually. ---------------------------------------- **apple seeds don't always follow the "parent" as they are open pollinated and may carry genetics of a nearby but different apple 🍎. ---------------------------------------- This apple is locally grown (as in 40 min or less in this case) and we value that in our seed saving as well. Whenever possible we save the seeds from our local farmers' produce. The plants adapt to a climate and area and hold that strength in their DNA. In these seeds is a history of epigenetics in plant-form. #scienceofgrowing ---------------------------------------- We would love to see more farmers hand out info cards on seed saving with each produce. It might seem counterintuitive but in our minds it's part of permaculture principles to share and encourage abundance. This will be our goal when we start sharing our own produce and seeds. ---------------------------------------- #zerowaste #lowwaste #seedsaving #compost #localfarms #localfarmers #smallfarmers #northcarolinafarming #northcarolinagrown #growwhatyoueat #eatwhatyougrow #livesimply #liveabundantly #homesteadersinthemaking #homesteadinthemaking #mindfulliving #consciousliving #veganpermaculture #homesteadingkids #plantbasedfamily #ashevillefarmersmarket

Om, Om, Om... I call it the window of life! I transformed this window in a greenhouse just by installing few shelves on it. What intrigued one of my guests this weekend was why I’ve picked this bedroom window. I did it because this window is located at the southern side of the building to achieve the most amount of direct morning sunlight to my exterior garden starting plants. Morning light is the most beneficial time of the day for new growth. Sun from the west will be adequate also but plants in window greenhouses facing this southern direction will grow as rapidly. The WRI report on Creating a Sustainable Food Future estimates that we need about 70% more food in 2050 than we have today in order to provide every one of the 9.6 billion world population with a daily intake of 3,000 calories. It's a huge challenge, but unlike other sustainability challenges, everyone can play a part in the solution. Be aware! If everyone tried to grow their own vegetables it would bring home how difficult food production is. Join your sustainable community! Join www.terrabelha.com !!!

🐶This is handsome Rolo 🐶. He's our big-hearted Weenie pup. He is 1 of 5 in our furry family. He's a rescue for whom a 6 hour drive to retrieve was nothing. It was love at first sight after seeing his sweet face in a single blurry picture about 6 years ago. He is such a sweet boy and loves to bask in warm sunshine, chase things into the woods, or snuggle under bed covers (& yes there have been many nights of thunder where we have hosted all 5 dogs AND our toddler in our full-sized bed 🙊😳😍). THANKFULLY we just upgraded to a Queen size! . His best buddy is our old man Amigo (our short haired boy chihuahua). He will no doubt NOT be our last Weenie-hound ❤️--once you have a Dachshund there's no not having one 🐶! 👶He is also the youngest of our furry kids so, although we know not every one of our sweet old pups will see the land we purchase in 5-6 years for the Farmstead, this guy will most likely be one of our first official Farm Dogs 👨🏻‍🌾 👩🏻‍🌾🐶 ---------------------------------------------- #weenlife #dachshunds #rescueanimals #rescuedogs #foreverhome #adoptnevershop #furryfamily #furrychildren #redweenie #ourfamily #homesteaddog #farmdog #huntingdog #rescuedog #veganblogger #homesteadbloggers #homesteadblog #veganfarmers #homesteading #veganfarmers #vegangarden #vegangardener #permaculture #veganpermaculture #animalphotography #rightwhereweare #slowandsteady #petphotography

And other fun things...like making necklaces with my daughter and reading stories, giving kisses to her and all the puppies (6 at current count, 5 of our own + 1 summer guest), researching straw-bale gardening (not sure how I feel about it yet...will probably do my own version with 1/2 bales and more compost --we have hard, compacted red clay....any suggestions???), refined the plan for the fall garden taking into account less sun in our new yard than we'd hoped 😐, & made dinner out of 6 different left-over meals (!!!!!!!) WHEW!!!! And it's only 5:30pm! #familymovienight #stillfeellikeihaveSOmuchtodo -------------------------------------------------- ♻️Reduce, reuse, THEN recycle♻️ -------------------------------------------------- #homesteadskills #sprouting #homemade #homesteading #veganhomesteadibg #homesteaders #veganblog #homesteadblog #farmersmarket #veganicfarming #veganfood #veganicgardeners #veganfarmers #permaculture #veganpermaculture #onestepatatime #gardening #vegangardening #appalachia #asheville #veganasheville #canning #preserving #zerowaste #nowaste #reuse #zerowasteliving #homesteadingskills

👨‍👩‍👧🌲👨🏻‍🌾👩🏻‍🌾 Family, forests and farming. Three main reasons that brought us to The Appalachian Mountains to make our home. This Sunday we got to enjoy two of these-- forest adventure and time with family. Even Grandma trekked with us off-trail (unintentionally...oops) up a river to the beautiful Upper Falls via The Graveyard Fields trail (not that we followed the trail 😏). The creek was so 💦 refreshing on the warm sunny ☀️ hike and we only saw 1☝🏼 snake 🐍😱😋. #hikingadventures #appalachiamountains #family #forests #farming #wild #offtrail -------------------------------------------------- 🖌Kyle will be posting a re-telling of our adventure on this trail. Stay tuned for more! 🖌 -------------------------------------------------- #hikingwithtoddlers #wildandfree #homestead #familyhike #nature #veganhomesteading #veganhomesteaders #permaculture #veganpermaculture #veganfarmers #vegangardeners #appalachia #earthstewardship #veganfamilies #simpleliving #smokeymountains #appalachianmountains #veganblog #homesteadblog #homesteading #urbanhomesteading #hiking #trails

🥄Made our first official jars of jam. Foraged wild blackberries and organic blueberries. No pectin and low sugar. 🥄 -------------------------------------------------- INGREDIENTS: 1 unpeeled Apple, processed in a food processor until chopped well (or you can shred with a cheese grater) 2 cups foraged blackberries, mashed 2 cups blueberries, mashed 1 cup raw sugar 2 teaspoons citrus juice (I used lime) DIRECTIONS: Heat all ingredients in a small pot until just bubbling. You can mash the berries at this point. (OR--I prefer to mash before heating but it's up to you). Continue to cook until soft. Mash more as needed. When finished, transfer while hot into sterilized mason jars (+ lids)- (water bath canned) or allow to cool in the pot and put in clean glass containers in the fridge. Will last about 2-weeks in the fridge not canned and sealed. -------------------------------------------------- #canning #preserving #jammaking #preserves #foragedberries #foraging #foraging #homestead #homesteadblogs #homesteading #homesteadingblog #permaculture #veganpermaculture #veganicfarming #veganicgardening #veganhomesteading #veganhomesteaders #permaculture #veganfarmers #vegangardeners #northcarolina #appalachia #foodforests #earthstewardship #earthcare #peoplecare #fairshare #veganasheville #vegankids #veganfamilies

Amidst the abundance of summer solstice, may we be mindful of the vital forces that surround + sustain us. From the Sun, to the plants, to us, and back again. Celebrate the power of light and channel that power into creating something bigger than ourselves. Let us protect and nurture the plants as they protect and nurture our bodies, minds, and souls💖🌱✌️ . . . . . #growyourown #homegarden #overgrowthesystem #fuckthesystem #growingyourgreens #backyardforaging #urbangardening #growyourownmedicine #vegan #whatveganseat #vegangardening #vegangardener #veganpermaculture #organic #veganic #thehappygardeninglife #urbanorganicgardener #oregongardening #urbanfarm #happygarden #nongmo #harvesting #homesteading #instagardenlovers #hippylife

http://www.learnpermaculture.com/blog/319-save-our-soils This is so important, growing crops for animals and using monoculture systems to feed ourselves are destroying the soil structure and causing massive erosion which is in turn poisoning the sea... #veganic #nodig integrated perennial planting, polyculture and #forestgardening #agroforestry #woodlandgarden #growingyourownfood are positive appropriate solutions.

🕯 Writing letters Anna Misty Mountain morning to my (Athena's) best friends back in KC. 🕯Missing them and dreaming of future visits, late night talks & wilderness adventures 🚗 🌲. -------------------------------------------------- One of our challenges as two introverts who always want more family time is not getting too isolated. This is especially true as learning homesteaders. We are already in a semi-rural area it's easy to just stay home and avoid going places and making new friends. This is our current family challenge in this new home and state. -------------------------------------------------- #oldfashioned #letterwriting #nostalgia #bestfriends #introverts #veganicfarming #veganicgardening #veganhomesteading #veganhomesteaders #permaculture #veganpermaculture #veganfarmers #vegangardeners #northcarolina #appalachia #foodforests #earthstewardship #earthcare #peoplecare #fairshare #veganfamilies #simpleliving #kitchengarden #perrenials #annuals #herbgardens #flowergardens #foodgardens #biodynamics #smokeymountaingardeners

🌱 Things are growing! 🌱 -------------------------------------------------- Because of our move from Kansas City this year our "spring garden" took the form of starting a Children's Garden at the cohousing community we landed in. Every time I visit our little garden here I am stunned and amazed at the beauty and life and health present in this little space. We harvested some of the greens for our Hispanic themed potluck and movie night with the kids last night (we watched Coco ❤️). -------------------------------------------------- #veganicfarming #veganicgardening #veganhomesteading #veganhomesteaders #permaculture #veganpermaculture #veganfarmers #vegangardeners #northcarolina #appalachia #foodforests #earthstewardship #earthcare #peoplecare #fairshare #veganfamilies #simpleliving #kitchengarden #perrenials #annuals #herbgardens #flowergardens #foodgardens #biodynamics #smokeymountaingardeners #vegetablegarden #cohousing #childrensgarden #harvest
