My baking skills are not the best. Thankfully they're sufficient enough to sterilize potting soil and egg shells. 😄 Once the soil cools I can transplant the broccoli, brussels sprouts and swiss chard seedlings into larger containers. The egg shells will be crushed and powdered and used on the garden next year. . . . . . . #gardeningaddict #gardening #transplanting #planting #wintergarden #backyardgarden #backyardgardening #farm #farmette #backyardfarming #homesteading #nowaste #pnw #westernwashington #washington #litenhagefarm

Super easy meal. Scrambled eggs, heirloom tomatoes, pepper jack cheese, garlic chives, sea salt & cayenne pepper. I used eggs from our hens and the heirloom tomatoes & garlic chives from our garden.🍅 I love using this little cast iron pan that was Chris' grandparents. What do you like cooking in cast iron? 🍳 . . . . . . #cooking #food #instafood #castironskillet #castironcookware #castironpan #healthyfood #vegitarianfood #glutenfree #glutenfreefood #farm #homegrown #homemade #homesteading #backyar #pnw #westernwashington #washington #litenhagefarm

Chris filled the house with the awesome smell of gluten free chicken and dumplings tonight. I could smell it from the backyard while in the garden. When you have an allergy and someone makes you a comfort dish you haven't had in a while it means the world to you. ❤ @bigfoothuntinghomesteader . . . . . . #food #instafood #healthyfood #comfortfood #homemade #makedontbuy #homesteading #pnw #westernwashington #washington #litenhagefarm

Adding red clover blossoms to my herbal tea blend.🍵 Chris has been sick for weeks and I finally got sick several days ago. Clover is full of nutrients and can help with a bad cough. Fingers crossed we kick this thing quickly. . . . . . . #food #instafood #tea #wellness #healthyfood #pnw #westernwashington #washington #litenhagefarm

We grew everything in this meal except the salt, pepper & butter. ☺ Our shallots, eggs, zucchini, & tomatoes in the scramble & the leftover mashed potatoes are from the potatoes we harvested this week. I love when Chris cooks. 😋 @bigfoothuntinghomesteader . . . . . . #gardening #feedyourself #backyardgarden #backyardgardening #urbanorganicgardener #iamcountryside #motherearthnews #backyardfarming #homesteading #farm #growwhatyoueat #healthyfood #homegrown #sustainable #organic #nature #healthyfood #homesteading #food #cooking #homemade #instafood #makedontbuy #makewhatyoucan #youcancook #farmtotable #slowfood #slowfoodmovement #pnw #washington #westernwashington #litenhagefarm

The cayenne hot peppers I started from seed are beginning to produce! 🔥 They almost didn't survive some kind of fungus attack a few months ago so I'm pleasantly surprised. 💃 . . . . . . #gardening #backyardgarden #backyardgardening #urbanorganicgardener #iamcountryside #motherearthnews #backyardfarming #homesteading #farm #peppers #hotpepper #cayenne #growfoodnotlawns #growwhatyoueat #homegrown #sustainable #summer #organic #nature #greenthumb #pnw #washington #westernwashington #litenhagefarm

The beautiful Buffy has been my buddy in the garden lately. While I'd like to believe it's because she loves me too, I realize it's more likely she's waiting for me to dig up crawling critters for her to snack on.🐛🐜 . . . . . #chickens #gardening #backyardgarden #backyardgardening #urbanorganicgardener #iamcountryside #motherearthnews #backyardfarming #homesteading #farm #sustainable #summer #organic #backyardchickens #chickensofinstagram #urbanchickens #farmette #greenthumb #pnw #washington #westernwashington #litenhagefarm

In the 3 1/2 x 13 foot flower bed we were able to grow almost 5 pounds (4.90) of onions in between the strawberry plants! I'm always amazed at how much food can be grown in small spaces in town. The 53 strawberry plants produced 2 quarts of berries and the bush beans on either side produced almost 2 quarts as well. #growfoodnotlawns . . . . . . #gardeningaddict #gardening #backyardgarden #backyardgardening #urbanorganicgardener #iamcountryside #motherearthnews #backyardfarming #homesteading #farm #growwhatyoueat #homegrown #onions #onionharvest #harvest2018 #sustainable #summer #fall #organic #greenthumb #pnw #washington #westernwashington #litenhagefarm

Near miss hawk attack this afternoon. 😨 I heard the hens all shrieking and ran out the door in my slippers. None of them were visible in the backyard and I just about ran right into a hawk as it was taking off from the chicken coop roof. Two of the girls were hiding under the bush in the corner and the others were trying to hide under the bamboo. They are now all huddled together under the bush. No blood, but Miss Roo had her back feathers all messed up. Still not sure what happened but so happy they're alright. I've seen the hawk a few more times on the horizon but it hasn't come back yet. The girls are making irritated rumbles. I'm afraid to go back inside. 😦 . . . . . . #chickens #backyardchickens #chickenproblems #predator #predators #hawks #chickensofinstagram #urbanchickens #backyardfarming #backyardgardening #homesteading #farm #farmette #sustainable #summer #girlpower #backyardpoultrymag #backyardchickenproject #iamcountryside #pnw #washington #westernwashington #litenhagefarm
