I wake up at 430 to get to the farm on time, and that's a little tough. But then I get to listen to good music on the way and arrive to see this gorgeous sight. The garden I work in most of the time is called Narnia. It really is a magical place. (P.S. our other two gardens are called Middle Earth and the Forbidden Forest, so you know I'm in book nerd heaven over here) . . . #sustainability #sustainableagriculture #growyourownfood #knowyourfarmer #farmtotable #ncagriculture #farmher #ladyfarmer #womenwhofarm #womeninag #notill #organicproduce #organicfarming #regenerativeagriculture #regenerativefarming #farmlife

Did you know Nicole is a Master Composter Recycler volunteer for the @cityofedmonton ?This week she gave a composting class to Whyte Ave Rotary Club! @whyterotary She brought her indoor worm bin and taught everyone the benefits of keeping these helpful pets and how to keep them healthy. Everyone learnt the basics of composting, how to build an outdoor pile and how to extract the finished compost. We all smelt the beautiful earthy smell of the final product. ⁣ ⁣ The best part? - There is one very 'active' pile on site which let out steam when we prised it open with the fork! 😁🤓 #yegmcr Everyone was brave enough to stick their hand into the centre of the pile and feel the intense heat generated by millions of tiny organisms as they breakdown the organic matter into the perfect soil conditioner. ⁣ ⁣ The Garneau Community Compost Station at Veg in Yeg has space for 6 large piles. The station is open to anyone in the community to bring their plant-based food scraps and paper-based/organic waste - we see people coming in to use it every day! Thanks to Rotary Club and everyone using the station so far who is contributing to reducing the CO2 output of their waste in this way. Climate heroes 🙌⁣🌎 ⁣ We also need to give a shout out to @suzannedennis. She is a Master Composter Recycler who lives in Garneau and has created loads of great waste-reducing initiatives like the incredible @boombagsyeg. She also has a party kit full of cutlery, plates and hand-sewn reusable napkins that she lends out for free to community members to help reduce the waste of catering for a small event like this. So happy we could prevent the use of disposable plates this way! If you'd like to borrow them you can contact Su.⁣ ⁣ Composting is easy and fun. Whether you're an organization, business, family or individual and would like to come to the farm in Garneau to take a free class with Nicole, get in touch! We also recommend taking a trip to Compost' S cool at the John Janzen Nature Centre to catch one of their many free workshops. Find out more at: www.edmonton.ca/compost. ⁣

Of all the things crowding my mind this next-to-last Friday in May, the one that sounds louder than all the others and is probably most important too: this day is a gift, this season is a gift, this life is a gift, is a gift, is a gift 🌿

As a farmer, I spend a LOT of my day looking down; at the soil, at the plants, from the tractor. But, every day I get to be out there growing food is a day I am living the dream. So, sometimes I have to remember to look up and take it all in. Sidenote: @subedgefarm must special order the sky above them because it's always a stunner!! ☀️☁️ #farmlife #womenwhofarm #lookup

🌱I’m not crying, you’re crying🌱 . These onions smell so strong already! This is our second succession of the season. So looking forward to these Red of Florence beauties. Thank goodness this is one crop that most pests generally leave alone (knock on wood). . Grateful for rainy days. Sick of weeding so onto some transplanting for now! . . #nomoreweeding #please #tourismlangley #womenwhofarm #iamamodernfarmer #onion #redofflorenceonion #fraservalleyeats #bcbuylocal #southlangley #langley #bakercreekheirloomseeds

“Old McDonald had a farm...” . Oh my goodness...leaping Gus, goats on the teeter totter, and the cows singing in the background. Folks welcome to my life...and my Live videos! . I took this clip out of one I did about a week ago. This particular one I could make into several little clips. The lives are great because you NEVER know what’s going to happen. This past week the goats got into a pasture I wasn’t expecting...live farm folly’s are the best. . Even if you can’t catch them live, watch them later. I believe, and many fans let me know, they are my best content. I love your questions during them too!! It’s as if you are actually visiting with us here on the farm, and we love it! . Have you caught our lives? What is your favorite thing you have seen? . #instagramlivestream #leapinglambs #fiberfarm #ilovemylife ❤️ #barnyard

Portable, low cost, easy to use infrastructure is something we like to use wherever possible on the farm. Our portable water system has meant that we have been able to start running our dairy beef poddy calves in our back paddock months before we could have if we had of waited for a permanent water system. We have lots of great, easy to set up, low cost ideas to get small farmers started. All of our systems here are set up to be run by me - a middle aged female farmer. We run our Small Farms Workshops throughout the year. Email or message us if you are interested.

With only ⭐ one ⭐ sheep left to lamb, shearing has started already for us, would you believe it. 🐑✂️ When I opened the curtains this morning, a yellow slimy lamb was tumbling alongside its mother through the rushes, freshly hatched. And when I came back from playgroup and pulled up the car, I watched a gimmer (2-year old sheep) struggling with her labour. ☘ We had moved the last ones to give birth into the field next to the house, where we can keep an eye on them. Just in case. This was such a case. She did need a bit of help, but a healthy and very big lamb made its entrance into the world this afternoon (watch a video in my Insta stories). He's a bit dirty as he got stressed during the birth, because he was stuck. But he's ok and his mum is very excited, which is why the lambulance has transferred them to the shed, just overnight until everybody is settled. 🌕 And tomorrow, more shearing is on the menu, as the seasons turn for us yet again. I do like following the course of the year and measuring time with the changing chores in and around the croft. It seems a very natural way to move through the year. 🌍 It will often be a race against the weather, involving long drives across the countryside and endless nights spent in the shed grinding gear. However, shearing sheep is how my husband and I first met. And regardless of how tough it is, a little spark of romantic nostalgia still manages to sneak its way into this job for us. 💖 . . . . #shearing #sheepshearing #highlandcroft #highlandfarm #sheepwork #farmwork #movewiththeseasons #sheep #clipping #scotland #clippingsheep #lambing #lambulance #lambing2019 #almostfinished #shepherdess #farmher #womenwhofarm #shepherding #crofter #farmlife #thisfarminglife #crofting #shepherdslife #hillfarm #thisisfarming

I realized when the sun came out this morning that we’ve had several weeks of mostly grey. It’s amazing how a little sunshine changes my perspective. Thanks to all of you who reached out with encouragement and reminded me I wasn’t alone. Farming can be isolating which is great for this introvert most of the time but even a highly functioning introvert needs a community. Thanks for being part of mine!😊 Today’s sunny project is avocado and alfalfa dyeing. In less than a month we’ll have lots of simmering pots going at Fiber Camp.

When life gives you lemons ... 💚 That's really such a silly saying, especially as I really like lemons and life has no intentions of giving out free lemons. This tree I've had for almost a year now and it didn't overwinter all that well. It got bugs sucking it dry, but it's been trying to get back on its feet since I returned it outside. It's blossoming again, let's see how that goes. I guess I kind of relate to it: getting sucked dry bit still trying to do my best to create fruit. #10010 #learningfromnature #lemon

Made Strawberry & Vanilla Panna Cotta with the strawberries we got from @brocksfarm_nc 🍓 Panna cotta is creamy and passes the wobble test! I would normally make a compote with the strawberries to pair with this panna cotta. But the strawberries are just so sweet with a hint of tartness that it just balances out the creamy texture of the panna cotta. You can easily eat these berries on it's own - it's that good! I can eat a whole lot of this! One of my favorite desserts!

Hello, from my little botanical paradise. 🌿 It’s been summer-hot on the mountain this week, and so very dry. I’ve been out watering everyday (thank you 400ft well!) trying to keep this young garden of mine green and thriving. Even with the heat I’m grateful for these chores that keep me inspired, thriving and grounded. This is my happy place for sure. 💗🌻 #thehappygardeninglife Wishing you all a sweet and easy weekend!. . . . #homesteading #homesteadersofamerica #organicgardening #permaculture #iamamodernfarmer #consciousliving #selfsufficientliving #sustainablegardening #womenwhofarm #countryliving #permaculturefarm #growfoodnotlawns #foodforest #permaculturedesign #wncmountains #farmlifebestlife #iamcountryside #growyourownfood

Hey everyone!! I’m Tara, a farmer in Northern California 👩🏼‍🌾 I thought I would give you some quick facts about myself. ⁣ ⁣ I grew up on a farm on the outskirt of a town with a population of 800.⁣ ⁣ I dropped out of college at 20, after my dad was in a farming accident. He was life flighted and in surgery before I could get to the ER.⁣ ⁣ I had no intentions of being a farmer till I was about 23.⁣ ⁣ 1 month after moving back to the farm my Grandpa was murdered. I wanted to quit everything, but my dad told me I couldn’t stop now.⁣ ⁣ When I decided I wanted to grow grapes I knew nothing about them. I worked full time and commuted to Napa Valley College for a year to learn as much as possible during that time. ⁣ ⁣ I got married and planted my first 50 acre vineyard within 3 days of each other. ⁣ ⁣ And there you have it!! Wow that was a lot, my bad haha. Should I write a blog?? 🤔 Or maybe I need to learn to vlog? If you made it this far let me know 🤷🏼‍♀️⁣

In our family, Memorial Day, or Decoration Day, as my grandma called it, meant visiting the cemeteries in Modoc, Newcastle, and Indianapolis with fresh flowers for our ancestors’ graves. Grandma would tell us stories about all the aunts and uncles, the babies who didn’t make it, and all the various other family members. All the kids who grew up here on the farm loved these excursions, which usually ended in ice cream. Now that the Memorial Day celebrations usually involve food and grilling, we’re offering romaine (great for grilling), and butterhead (try it for wraps as our holiday special. $4 each or two for $7. Happy Decoration Day! @fishersfarmersmarket #christopherfarm #minnetrista #organicfarming #locallygrown #womenwhofarm #thelocaleateryandpub

Of all my sessions and senior photos, this one still sticks out as one of my all time favorites. @morganwalkup is one amazing #womaninag and her walk through the #nationalffa organization is one to remember.

My parents surprised me with a gift card to a local coffee and garden nursery. While we’ll definitely have to come back to get more supplies for the garden, we picked out some Gladiolus corms. Last quarter I learned how to propagate corms, bulbs, and tubers. It will be fun to put this into practice on my own!

There’s soooo many opportunities to feel like I’m failing all the time in this job. Between pest control (using organic methods), or the weeding that just never seems to end, or forgetting to water something and overwatering another and the list goes on and on and on. But then I have little moments, like this one. Where I harvest a bucket of blooms like these and I feel like I must be doing one or two things right and it gives me the encouragement to keep trying. I’ve also started paying close attention to my self-talk and when I have some ugly thoughts about myself or my work I try to remind myself “Is this how I would want my children speaking to themselves?” If the answer is hell no, I turn that shit around real fast and give myself a pep talk. Just some Friday ramblings for ya 😉These blooms are headed to @alicias.florals bouquet workshop this weekend 🙌 #locallygrownflowers #floralinspiration #localflowers #farmfresh #freshflowers #slowflowers #springflowers #canadiangrownflowers #yyjflowers #yyjflorist #farmher #womenwhofarm #blooms #floral #flowers #flowerlovers #farmerflorist #islandgrownflowers #yyjflowers #gardenersofinstagram #thehappygardeninglife #seasonalfloweralliance #bhgflowers #yyjfarmers #bcfarmers #flowerseveryday #flowergarden

Well May just flew right by, didn't it? My 4 part mental health series ended up being a one hit wonder so far 🤷🏼‍♀️ Luckily for us, we can bring awareness all year round! So I'll get back to it when I can. • As for today, I just want to hold some space for myself. The ability to be in the present moment is a major component of mental wellness. And I'm allowing myself this time to feel whatever it is I need to. • Because today, I'm driving back to my hometown to see my Gramma for probably the last time. And breathing through the ache is pretty much all I can manage. And that's ok. • • We are consumed by the idea that negative emotions need to be suppressed. But I say grieve. Be sad. Be angry. Be lost. Feel, so that you can then be free to feel something else. That's how we truly heal. • And no, the picture has nothing to do with this. My kids told me I couldn't do it, so I told them to hold my shoes 😂 . . . #Family #Farm #Goals #RealLife #Blessed #Health #Faithbased #Homestead #Fitness #Photography #WomenInAg #Wellness #Stretch #FarmHer #SelfCare #PNW #Lifestyle #Animals #MentalHealth #Rural #Strength #Home #Fearless #Farmlife #FarmToTable #WomenWhoFarm #Nature #MomLife #Authentic #Beauty

This morning Tony found this corn snake had killed three of our new turkey poults and already eaten one. Corn snakes resemble copperheads but don’t have the exact markings. The bands on the corn snake are different than the hourglass shape bands in the coppers. The head shape of a copperhead has the spade (like card game) appearance. Notice the checkered pattern in the belly. Corn snaked constrict to kill their prey which then suffocates. The baby turkey was swallowed whole as you can see in the video. Btw, my father killed a rattle snake in his back yard near the house this week in Orangeburg. #snakes #rurallife #cornsnake #babyturkey #snakes #womenwhofarm #veteranfarmer #sthelenaislandsc
