Growing stuff is hard. I cry sometimes when stuff dies. I almost pee my pants when something grows to its full potential. I love when people walk through our garden and are in awe that I'm just gonna pull up food and hand it to them. We work hard for this, but there's not really another option for me. I started life farming, I will die farming. #countryqueers#queerswhofarm#enbieswhofarm#womenwhofarm#gardening#marketgarden#cheesin
Keely's second time at the dairy farm has been much more exciting. She's unsure of so many chickens making so many freaky noises, but she l.o.v.e.s the cow cows. She and Millie booped noses and shared head-shakes through the gate. It's only a matter of time before they're frolicking through green pastures together. 🐔🐄🐶 #canecorso#puppy#jerseycow#queerswhofarm
🍃Something happens to me every spring where my heart shakes the cold of winter and I bask in the giddiness of making it out alive. I get romantic and silly, my head in the clouds and my feet in the soil. Feathering through my flesh; irritable and flighty. I mourn my almost lovers and lost friendships, renewing my vowes to the Universe and my honeybee. Reassure myself it's okay that our capacity to love is infinite. My stomach clenches with excitement masked as anxiety, I might not make it through another season like this. Deep breath; plant seeds. One pea, two pea, three. Flowers bloom with time and so will I, the freeze doesn't last forever.
🌰 It feels silly to admit but this is the first time I've ever started cannabis seeds myself. I've collected seeds for years, grown from clones, and watched others close to me grow seeds- but never done it specifically myself. Starting 13 different strains including Blizzard Bush, Chinook Haze, CactusBreath, 🍓 Sequoia Strawberry, a few mystery strains, Monkey Bread, Pink Jelly, Key Largo and moreee. Gonna give some outdoor breeding a go this season, see if we can selectively save seeds. Proud and excited for this moment in my horticultural experience. 😊 Thanks for teaching me, ma! Grateful to do this with my family. #greenpointseeds#thugpuggenetics#sincityseeds#farmhousegenetics#friendswhoshareseeds#bagseeds#growseeds
Self-care isn't always bath bombs and yoga, but sometimes it is. Every winter I think I won't be hit, then before I know it I'm dying for spring to bring me back. Life has been weird the last 4 months; 6 months; year. I am slowly refinding my value and self-worth. It's a meaningful process that continues through SAD, through PMDD, through chemical imbalances. My head is above water and my people keep me afloat. Sometimes bath bombs are a simple answer. #sad#pmdd#anxiety#depression#ilovelush#gratitude
🌱 Started our first seeds today. First time using the #KNF seed starting treatment. It's a series of herbal extractions and ferments that the seeds are soaked in before planting in an effort to give them a strong start. 🌰 I also broke out the soil cuber, which is awesomeeee. I look forward to mixing a better seedling mix but it was cool to see it function. Onward into the season we go! Alliums, spring brassicas, and herbs/spices are officially started for 2018. 👊 #ses#seedstartingtreatment#seeds#queerswhofarm
