Pretty n pink 💕 . Went to @pinkiron this morning and it kicked my bootay! It was actually so fun and I am not one of those people that loves to work out so I have been pleasantly surprised 🤗 . Powering back up with this smoothie bowl. Tragically, I didn’t have a banana to top this with which would make it even better but I do love me some pitaya! Happy Tuesday, y’all! . #smoothie #smoothiebowl #healthy #healthyfood #healthyliving #healthylifestyle #eatorganic #organic #granola #hippie #utah #utahgram #beutahful #saltlakecity #pinkiron #hiit #farmfresh #freshpicked #farmer #farming #farmerintraining #hydrovegan #happyhomesteading #thehappygardeninglife #garden #lovegardening #farmersmarket #fresh #pitayabowl #dragonfruit

Look at what I woke up to this morning 😍🌻 . Took the second photo yesterday and knew it’d be happening soon but was so excited to see this pretty lil thang this morning. . I didn’t have much room to plant sunflower seeds but I had to make room for at least one and it looks like it may be a Siamese twin 😂 look at how y’all they are! About 6ft 🤗 . What are you favorite flowers? 🌷💐🌺🌻🌸🌼 . #summer #summertime #flowers #sunflower #backyardfarmlady #backyardfarmer #utahgardening #hydrovegan #thehappygardeninglife #groworganic #gardenactivist #sustainablesprout #beautahful #urbanorganicgarden #amazinggardener #myorganicworld #organicbuildslife #gardenersofinstagram #growyourown #garden #gardening #gardener #lovegardening #gardenproduce #backyardgardening #farming #farmerintraining #farmer #farmersmarket #gardentips

Throwing it back to the BEST cherry picking day! 🍒 . I’ve picked a lot of fruit and I’ve got to say cherry and raspberry picking are probably my top favorites. What’s your favorite thing to uPick? . Excited for 🍎 and 🍑 at the end of this month but I sure do miss those cherries 😋 . #upick #freshpicked #cherries #cherrypicking #gardeninglife #gardening #happyhomesteading #farming #backyardfarming #farmer #farmerinthemaking #farmerintraining #peachpicking #applepicking #summer #summertime #sustainablesprout #thehappygardeninglife #groworganic #organic #farmfresh #farmlife #farmlifebestlife #homegrown #gardenactivist #gardenersofinstagram #veggiegarden #lovegardening #gardenproduce #gardener

Caught Denali holding an egg ever so gently in her mouth 🐣 She gave it back but I think she was just happy to help out! She was cheesin’ so hard her eyes were closed in this pic 😂 love when she hangs out with me while I do my farm chores ❤️ . Any Great Pyrenees parents out there? My pup is a mix and I love the heck out of her 😍 . #greatpyrenees #greatpyreneesofinstagram #backyardfarmlady #backyardfarmer #utahgardening #farmerintraining #farmerinthemaking #farming #backyardfarming #thehappygardeninglife #groworganic #sustainablesprout #utahgram #backyardchickens #beautahful #urbanorganicgarden #myorganicworld #chickensofinstagram #gardenersofinstagram #fresheggs #farmer #farmlife #homesteading #homegrown #healthyfood #farmfresh #farmanimals #freerange #chickens #chickensofinstagram

My purple obsession hasn’t quite worn off yet 🙈 but come on look at how pretty these beans are! These are just a few, there are SO many more left! If you’ve cooked with these before, teach me your ways! I don’t want to mess them up, they’re just too pretty 💜💜 . #backyardfarmlady #backyardfarmer #utahgardening #hydrovegan #thehappygardeninglife #groworganic #gardenactivist #sustainablesprout #beautahful #urbanorganicgarden #amazinggardener #myorganicworld #organicbuildslife #gardenersofinstagram #growyourown #veggiegarden #garden #gardening #gardener #lovegardening #gardenproduce #gardenveggies #organic #organicgardening #backyardgardening #farming #farmerintraining #farmer #farmersmarket #gardentips

When your desk neighbor gives you fresh picked plums, make a plum tart 🤷🏻‍♀️ . I had fun bringin’ back some techniques I learned from culinary school. First time making pastry cream from scratch and a fruit tart in general, in America! . @morg_salisbury and @nick_salisbury515 thanks for finding that tree in your backyard😂 I hope you love the tart! . #baking #frenchpastry #plums #freshpicked #backyardfarming #backyardfarmer #utahgardening #hydrovegan #thehappygardeninglife #groworganic #gardenactivist #sustainablesprout #beautahful #gardenersofinstagram #growyourown #veggiegarden #garden #gardening #gardener #lovegardening #gardenproduce #gardenveggies #organic #organicgardening #backyardgardening #farming #farmerintraining #farmer #farmersmarket #gardentipst

This week’s farmers market haul! As you can probably tell, I was feelin’ tha purple veg this weekend 💜 I got some of my favorites like yellow zucchini and purple potatoes but also a few new things I’ve never cooked with before like turnips, daikon, and Japanese eggplant. . I love getting to try out new things from the farmers market! I’m thinking a ratatouille for the eggplant and zucchini 😋 Anyone have any favorite ways to eat daikon and turnips? I want to hear from you! . #backyardfarmlady #backyardfarmer #utahgardening #hydrovegan #thehappygardeninglife #groworganic #gardenactivist #sustainablesprout #beautahful #urbanorganicgarden #amazinggardener #myorganicworld #organicbuildslife #gardenersofinstagram #growyourown #veggiegarden #garden #gardening #gardener #lovegardening #gardenproduce #gardenveggies #organic #organicgardening #backyardgardening #farming #farmerintraining #farmer #farmersmarket #gardentips

Love love love my blue egg crates! They make me so dang happy🤗 . We’ve been traveling quite a bit so the eggs have been piling up! I packed these up for a garage sale my friends held to help a couple adopt two disabled children from Eastern Europe 💙 I love being able to help where I can and get involved! How do you get involved in your local community? . #backyardfarmlady #backyardfarmer #utahgardening #farmerintraining #farmerinthemaking #farming #backyardfarming #thehappygardeninglife #groworganic #sustainablesprout #utahgram #backyardchickens #beautahful #urbanorganicgarden #myorganicworld #chickensofinstagram #gardenersofinstagram #backyardflock #fresheggs #eggvignette #farmer #farmlife #homesteading #homegrown #healthyfood #farmfresh #farmanimals #freerange #chickens #chickensofinstagram

My little sunflower isn’t so little anymore 🌻 . I planted these seeds last year and forgot about it but then came out in June this year to replant everything and noticed this baby has sprouted so I kept it and it’s getting HUGE! I honestly can’t even remember what kind of sunflower it is so I am just going to have to wait and see but this baby is already about 5 feet tall and hasn’t bloomed. Excited to see how it grows🤗 . Sunflowers are my favorite flower of them all! There are so many different kinds and I think they’re all the prettiest 💛 what are your favorite crops? . #selfie #selfiesunday #inthegarden #backyardfarmer #utahgardening #hydrovegan #thehappygardeninglife #groworganic #gardenactivist #sustainablesprout #beautahful #urbanorganicgarden #myorganicworld #organicbuildslife #gardenersofinstagram #growyourown #veggiegarden #garden #gardening #gardener #lovegardening #gardenproduce #gardenveggies #organic #organicgardening #backyardgardening #farming #farmerintraining #farmer #farmersmarket

So many fun finds at the farmers market yesterday! I love going because I of course love to support the farms wherever I can but also because you just can’t find a lot of this stuff at the grocery store like patty squash, currants, and black nebula carrots. I can’t wait to experiment with these new ingredients. . First up, red currant cocktails! Spending the afternoon by the pool so we’re going to need somethin’ to sip on. I’ll keep you up to date on my stories! 🍹 . Deets: Prettiest flower arrangement from @slctopcrops (seriously the most perfect sunflowers!) lots of peaches for a peach berry cobbler - lots of berries in the fridge from @taggesfruit stand, red and white currants for cocktails, orange carrots, black nebula carrots, sun dried tomatoes, rainbow beets, patty squash, purple potatoes, zucchini, and my fave chips and pico . #foodhaul #farmersmarkethaul #groceryhaul #backyardfarmlady #backyardfarmer #hydrovegan #thehappygardeninglife #groworganic #gardenactivist #sustainablesprout #beautahful #urbanorganicgarden #myorganicworld #gardenersofinstagram #growyourown #veggiegarden #garden #gardening #gardener #lovegardening #gardenproduce #gardenveggies #organic #organicgardening #backyardgardening #farming #farmerintraining #farmer #farmersmarket

Garden gone wild!! . Things have gone totally nuts over these last couple weeks in the garden. I feel like every time I step outside, I find new growth and get SO excited. Going to finally figure out how to prune up some of these crazies this weekend to be sure I’m giving them the best opportunity to grow and produce. (See what I did there? Give them a chance to produce produce 😂) . Also going to move some things around since the 🎃 and 🍉 have been growing out of control, they need more space so I’m going to help them figure it out! Stay tuned for more updates! . Deets: Watermelon plant has grown about 6 feet and is starting to flower, chickens are laying like crazy, we’ve got a few little tomatoes, about 4 inches of carrot sprouts, some little yellow squash and a surprise overnight zucchini, SO many squash blossoms, my sunflower is almost as tall as me and we’ve got tons of purple beans. Overall I am so so so excited to watch it all grow! . #backyardfarmlady #backyardfarmer #utahgardening #hydrovegan #thehappygardeninglife #groworganic #gardenactivist #sustainablesprout #utahgram #beautahful #urbanorganicgarden #amazinggardener #myorganicworld #organicbuildslife #gardenersofinstagram #growyourown #veggiegarden #garden #gardening #gardener #lovegardening #gardenproduce #gardenveggies #organic #organicgardening #backyardgardening #farming #farmerintraining #farmer #farmersmarket

Throwin’ it back to berry picking with this honayyy 🍓 . I love love love berry picking because you get to pick all the best perfect ones, take way too much home, bake a giant cobbler, and then challenge yourself to finish it all while it’s still warm. GIMME THAT 😋 . Anyone have good recommendations for places to pick your own fruit in Utah? I know it’s slim pickins here (pun intended) but I want to find a place! I used to live in Denver and loved checking out The Berry Patch in Brighton for pick your own fruit and flowers. Tell me your favorite spots near you! . #berrypicking #upick #growyourown #strawberry #strawberries #raspberries #pickyourown #freshpicked #berries #summer #summertime #farm #farming #farmerinthemaking #farmlife #farmlifebestlife #farmers #homesteading #homegrown #farmfresh #healthyfood #backyardfarmer #groworganic #gardenactivist #happygardeninglife #thehappygardeninglife #sustainablesprout #hydrovegan #vegan

Missin’ my hennies 🐔🧡 . I have been traveling a ton over the last few weeks between work and some fun personal trips but I’m missing my little backyard farm. I am so thankful to have a chicken and plant sitter that I trust and my boyfriend to take care of things while I’m gone but I miss checking out new growth in the garden every day and talking to my chickens like a crazy person. Excited to come home after this week’s travels and stay put for a little bit 🧡 .

Good morning from Mexico City! . I am LOVING it here! There’s so much good food and tons of fresh produce. There are so many little fruit stands and farmers markets to explore. Any of you been here? I need some recommendations! I want to visit a farm but I’m having a hard time finding one that allows visitors. If you know of any, drop me a note!
