Say Hello to the new girls in the garden. Introducing Molly, Luna and Hermione. All three have came from a recent rescue of Ex Commercial hens, girls are now safe and enjoying their first days of their new freedom. The first time they seen the grass it was a frenzy of excitment. Bella and Beatrix are still not sure of them. The pecking order has still not been established but I'm working with them patiently. #rescuechooks #excommercialhens #animalcompassion #backyardchooks #backgardenchickens #allotmentgarden #ayrshire #scotland #selfsufficient #countryliving
I’ve had a lot of people ask me questions about how we bought our house! I put up a blog post (link in bio) covering everything @dustymk and I learned in the home-buying process about USDA loans and what it takes to buy a home in a seller’s market. Enjoy! Feel free to ask me any questions. I know there are probably some things I can elaborate on!!! 🤠 ・・・ #homesteading #blogging #homesteadblog #homebuying #texas #realestate #loans #mortgages #usdaloans #finances #farming #ranching #rurallife #countryliving #prepper #selfsufficient #millennials

So. Also heute morgen hatte ich tatsächlich das erste Mal das Gefühl das es Herbst wird. Das Mutterkraut sieht trostlos aus, draussen war es frisch und feucht, zumindest bis 7 Uhr. Ich weiß, niemand will das hören (lesen), aber auch dieses Jahr geht ein Sommer zu Ende. Und wie ich heute gelesen habe war der Sommer 2003 immer noch wärmer als dieses Jahr. Welcher trockener war stand dort nicht. Schätze dieser. Aber was nützen einem traurige Rekorde? #tanacetum #mutterkraut #garten #garden #gardening #selfsufficient #fall #autmn #dgmno #derhagenberg #summerends

A good harvest of some of our home grown veg. - - - - - - - #homegrown #homegrownfood #homegrownveggies #selfsufficient #veggies #vegetables #harvest #summercrop #garden
Bumper crop! Love this time of year, our mature apple trees never fail to disappoint, the runner beans go wild and there's a steady supply of tomatoes. It feels so wholesome going into the garden to "harvest" This is too many beans for us at once so I'll blanch and freeze some, and I'll share the apples with family and work colleagues. The giant courgette is from my mother in law and I'm going to see if I can freeze that too, anyone know? #budget #budgeting #save #savemoney #frugal #frugalliving #garden #gardening #selfsufficient #thrifty #thriftymum #produce #share #free #freebies #tomatoes #apples #runnerbeans #courgette #homegrown
Wood stove mostly finished just needs the final touches. The ability to cook without propane and heat the bus is an awesome safeguard which should ensure plenty of time away from civilization! #diy #offgridliving #offgrid #selfsufficient #preparation #camping #nature #travel #travelling #transformationtuesday #walden #skoolie #justdoit ✔️ #wood #comfort #home #cozy #luxury
I wonder if Sausage cares that Links is laying in there dessert 🍨 Or maybe that's why she doing it. Links don't want to share 😂
Homemade lemon verbena syrup 🍸🙌🏼 We’re planning try this out tonight once the little one is in bed. I’m hoping that a wee medicinal gin will sort out this rubbish back to school cold 😵🤕 #lemonverbenasyrup #lemonverbena #gintime (looks a bit like a jar of pee 😕)
That's why I've started the Prepper Website Forum! 💥💥💥 #situationalawareness #opsec
Small but successful fruit and veg yield so far! With over 100 #figs , 50+ #chillis , handfuls of #tomatoes and more #plums than you can #bake into pies still on the tree. 1 small step closer to being #selfsufficient . 🤤 #growyourown #homegrown #lovemaidenhead

„Die dümmsten Bauern....!“ Na egal, hauptsache die Ernte ist gut! 2013( oder14?) hatten wir auch so dicke Brummer, die waren innen aber alle faul.

Do you like wild cherry tomatoes? They are growing like mad in my garden 😂 finally I started to harvest some, and there are waiting 5 times more OMG 😱 . .

Such a friendly and inquisitive goat at a good friend’s smallholding. Loved having her horn stumps scratched. #goat #smiling #inquisitive #happyanimals #friendly #smallholding #selfsufficient #smallfarm #wafb
afternoon harvest 🌿 something tells me tonight’s dinner might include green beans, and tomorrow’s activities may include blanching and freezing. It’s a lovely feeling being able to feed your family from the garden.

‘Parisian Pickling’ cucumbers soaking in water overnight. An old heirloom variety dating back to the 1800’s.

Immun booster elderberry jam in the making. You need ripe elderberries (clusters removed), whole apples, ground cinnamon, freshly grated ginger, lemon juice and a bit of raw cane sugar. I eyeballed it all, as per usual. So I don’t have the exact amount of the ingredients. You can’t go wrong if you use a bit more apple than elderberries. They contain a lot of pectin, that makes the jam jelly like...especially the peel and the core. Be careful with the cinnamon, easy with the ginger. Simmer it for 20-30 minutes and put it through a food mill. You need some elbow grease for this! 😂 Take daily one teaspoon of this jam throughout winter to keep the flue away. . . . #elderberry #jam #elderberryjam #earthmedicine #summertime #bodza #holunder #boszorkánykonyha #wildwoman #herbalism #herbalife #holistic #holistichealing #folkmedicine #patchamama #naturopathicmedicine #mindbodysoul #elbowgrease #flottelotte #foodmill #antiflue #wintermedicine #medicinemaking #weekend #countryside #kitchenlife #preserving #foraging #selfsufficient #recipe
How many cords do YOU go through in the winter? . While we feel ahead on our construction game...we feel behind on our wood cutting. We’re squeezing it in (amongst all other things)...but still got a lotta catchin’ up to do! . Keeping the high tunnel frost free on the inside, this winter, is our primary concern...over ANYTHING else. We’ll be using a combination of a wood burning stove, propane heaters, and little space heaters on the inside of the Airstream to regulate temps. We’ll see how all this fares down here in the Alaskan “banana belt”! ↟ @husqvarnausa . . . . . . #alaska #kenaipeninsula #homeralaska #homerak #fritzcreek #kachemakbay #wildalaska #wildpeopleforwildplaces #alaskalife #thealaskalife #sharingalaska #gonorth #upperleft #thelastfrontier #intothewild #keepitwild #theartofslowliving #liveauthentic #livesimply #simplelife #seekthesimplicity #mountainlife #countrylife #rural_love #rsa_rural #countrylife #ig_countryside #country_features #countrysidelife #renegade_rural
A favourite summer past time is foraging wild berries, they have so much flavour compared to the mass harvested berries from farms. . . It's a vegan-on-the-go snack!! What more could you ask for when trying to budget travel but still have cravings for sweet fruit!! 🍓🍐🍎 . . The New forest had so many blackberry bushes to choose from, I could walk and pick to my heart's content!! 😋 . . . #newforest #foraging #wildberries #yum #vegantraveller #budgettravel #vegansofig #veganfood #vegansnacks #getoutside #explorelocal #girlsborntotravel #getaway #globe_travel_ #earthlings #donoharm #amazingplanet #naturephotography #nature #pickyourownfruit #traveldiaries2018 #backpackwithme #followmyadventures #travelblogger #vanlifediaries #selfsufficient #walkthroughnature #travelicious #travelgram #travelgoals

🍅 Easy garden tomato puree for the freezer FTW! While there’s definitely a time and place for shelf-stable canning, I have come to love freezing preserves even more. We had a decent harvest of tomatoes this weekend - too many to eat fresh at once, but not enough to bother with hot bath canning - so here’s a handy solution we love! I made a story highlight called Frozen Toms ~ check it out to see the process. . This isn't a full-blown tomato sauce; not one ready dump on pasta and eat as-is. This is a simple, lightly seasoned, condensed tomato puree that we use throughout the year by adding a jar to batches of soup, lentils, curries, etc, keeping it pretty mild/versatile in flavor so it can be used to add tomatoey goodness to any dish. . I halved or quartered the tomatoes, left the skins on, and heated them in a big pot with a dash of salt & pepper until they released their juices. Then I grabbed just a small handful of chopped oregano, thyme, and sage from the garden (but somehow forgot basil? Ha!). After that got happy for a while, we use an immersion blender to puree it, reduce heat, and let simmer for about an hour to thicken and condense the flavors. If you don't have fresh herbs, you could use dry ones (though keep in mind a little dry herbs go long way; you'll want to use less than I used fresh!) or totally skip the herbs and keep it uber simple. You could also start with a sautee of onion and/or garlic before adding the tomatoes. It's up to you! If you don’t have an immersion blender, you could leave it chunky (but you’d probably want to remove the skins then), or blend in a traditional blender in batches and put back into the pot to reduce. . Allow to cool a bit, then portion to freezer-safe mason jars (or if you use plastic storage containers, that could work). Yes, some mason jars are safe to freeze! Generally it's the 8, 12, and 16 oz sizes, wide-mouth only. Their packaging will state "freezer safe". Note the freezer fill line on the jar itself - don't fill past there! We usually let them cool in the fridge overnight before adding to the freezer. Intense temp swings can increase the chance of glass cracking. . Easy peasy! Enjoy! 👌🏼 . #deannasfood
A #flashback photo of one of the first #projects of our first cohort! In #construction we call new workers “green”, like fresh cut #lumber . It’s always #rewarding to see how quickly our #green students become capable of #constructing objects of great use! 🔨 (The lumber rack they built has served us ever since!) We look forward to welcoming our 7th cohort in a couple of weeks, and it’s not too late to join us!

One of the few successes in the garden! Amaranth Callaloo planted as some tired weak seedlings I was given and are now flourishing in what was my potato bed! The colours on them are amazing! Need to make something Caribbean with the leaves, anyone got any ideas? 👇✌️🌍💚

Harvesting some of my crop from gardening club today 😁 Cabbages bigger than my head and more kale than I know what to do with 🙈 P.S.

This beauty is my new pressure canner!However today is not the day for canning. This beast is made of aluminum so she won’t work on the induction top and the Aga temperature can’t be finely tuned enough to manage the pressure. I’d better not chance an explosion. 😬I guess I’d better start looking for a heavy duty electric hot plate. So I’ve been hot water bathing, fresh pickling, and making/freezing soups to preserve all of this fresh deliciousness. I’m sweating and the place is a giant mess. But at least we’ll be enjoying the freshness of summer all winter long..#preservingtheharvest #homesteading #zerowaste #famiyheirloom #lesswaste #selfsufficient #organicgardening
Loving this recipe to use up some of those over-growing herbs! Post from @bigcitygardener Here’s the recipe: You will need: 1 head of cauliflower 1 teaspoon of olive oil 4 minded garlic cloves 2 limes 1/2- 1 cup of loosely packed cilantro (to taste) Salt & pepper to taste . 1. Cut cauliflower into pieces & put in food processor 2. Pulse until the cauliflower looks like rice 3. To a medium skillet over medium heat add olive oil & minced garlic, then cauliflower. 4. Season with salt, pepper, and lime juice to taste. 5. Heat for 5-10 mins (fluff with a fork). You just want to heat not burn. 6. Once cauliflower is heated add cilantro, mix & enjoy. . . . . . . . . . . #UrbanGardenCoach #GardenCoach #MasterGardener #UrbanOrganicGardener #GardeningKnowHow #GardeningGoals #GardeningTime #GardenGram #GrowFood #GardenLife #GardeningLife #GetGrowing #GreenThumb #TheHappyGardeningLife #EpicGardening #CityGarden #UrbanGarden #GrowItYourself #OrganicGarden #MyGarden #OrganicGardening #BlackFarmers #Houston #Zone9B #Cauliflower #SelfSufficient #GardenGoodies #GardenRecipeShare #GrowYourOwn #GardenToTable
