Day 13 of 30dys of thanksgiving crazy to think we are already half way through November 😮 #thankfulhomesteader ~favorite chore~ I just got me a new book from 1 of my favorite book sites they have amazing prices on books all my homesteading books I have I have gotten from here and they didn't cost me more than $30 if you get over $10 its free shipping who doesn't like that but to the point of (favorite chore) I don't have one at the moment but when I get my chickens it'll be collecting the eggs that'll be my favorite chore ☺💛 @the_hillside_homestead @wyscarver_farms #HomesteadersofInstagram #homesteaderofig #aspiringhomesteader #homesteadher #homesteadlife #homesteader #homesteading #homestead #vegetablegarden #backyardgarden #ruralhomestead #ruralliving #southdakotaliving #southdakotahasmyheart #bristolsouthdakota #bristolsd #southdakotawinter #southdakota #southdakotan #ruralsouthdakota #easternsouthdakota #easternsd #ruralsd #rurallife #quarteracre #smalltownusa🇺🇸

Day 13 is my favorite chore. Quite frankly these days it's hard to choose one. It's cold, I have to carry buckets of water to all of the pigs and chickens as the hose is frozen, and did I mention it's cold?? . . But I have to remember multiple times a day that Proverbs tells me not to grumble about my work, but instead to be #thankful that I have work. Also, to work in order to reap my harvest and not to be lazy. . . So today and every day while it's freezing cold, I have to remember that every chore is my favorite chore because I am a #thankfulhomesteader and I wouldn't want my life any other way because #homesteadingsavedme . . Besides, doesn't it give you a warm, fuzzy feeling to know that your animals depend on you for everything and you give them your all?? . . Come play along with @the_hillside_homestead and @wyscarver_farms

My chives are flowering! Its such a pretty flower too! After a bit of a struggle with no rain and a small pot, they are doing much better in the larger pot in a place they actually get watered! This one is now closer to the kitchen door making it much easier to pop out in your slippers to cut some herbs than it was in the old spot. Love having fresh herbs practically on the doorstep! . . #growyourownfood #permaculture #mygarden #backyardgarden #urbanfarm #homestead #homesteading #practicalfrog #ruralliving #selfsufficiency #eatlocal #food storage #homesteader #homesteadlife #homegrown #urbanhomestead @practicalfrog #frugalliving #frugallife #simpleliving

Tonight I made Brocolli Cheese Soup. Perfect dish for this winter like cold fall evening. Its super simple to make & a cold weather go to for us. 🍃 8 cups broccoli, 2 boxes chicken broth, 2 cups heavy cream, pepper to taste, a little garlic salt & paprika in a pot on medium until broccoli gets soft. Mash broccoli up and add in a 12oz bag of cheddar or Colby jack cheese. Serve with bacon bits! Check out my stories to see me msking it step by step.

Had an enjoyable visit with Bobbi our neighbor and longtime sheep breeder. Bobbie is a real “salt of the earth” woman who’s so funny, knowledgeable, and giving of her time and resources. I always make it a point to reach out to older ones especially. I’ve found their advice and experience invaluable! Chances are that after decades of raising animals, farming, and gardening they’ve experienced it all. Each time I spend an hour or so with her and other homestead and farming veterans I soak up so much information it would take reading hundreds of articles to match it. Who do you go to for advice and support in your farming and homestead endeavors? #gebruderfarm #raisingsheep #sheep #sheepdog #sheeps #lambs #lamb #lambchops #lambs #lambingseason #lambing #homesteading #homesteadlife #homestead #homesteader #homesteadinglife #homesteadersofamerica #sheepfarming #sheepfarm #sheepfarmers #sheepfarmer #wool #woolcoat #woolandthegang #woolsocks #wooldreads #woolandmania #mentor #mentorship #mentors

This lil piggy got his very own room in the barn with a special outdoor piggy run, after he kept molesting my goats...he stayed in his special spot for all about 3 hours when he escaped and has been hanging out with the cows ever since.. He bites and picks at them constantly and they kick him off and he goes back for more! He is keeping all of us on our toes! #piggy #pigsofinsta #minipig #farmstead #farmliving #farmlife #homesteadproblems #homesteader #homesteading #homestead #country #countrylife #countryliving

Warm, fuzzy feeling happy mail for these cold, wintery days. ✨ • My friends over at @parkseedco have kick started my ‘19 garden plans with a box of seed varieties that I’m really super excited about. 🌱 Some of which I can start here just as soon as our new greenhouse is finished! That new space will put our growing season on steroids and I’m anxious to try it out with some of these hardy, cool weather Park Seed varieties. • My garden plans also include taking better advantage of edible flower varieties next year, as well. Enter a lot of these @sustainablesprout flower seeds. 🌻🌸 We’ll just be over here attracting beneficial insects and popping handfuls of petals into dishes all summer. ✌🏻😎 You guys, check out these wonderful companies. They sure are great people. ❤️ • Real talk: We’ve reached the point of the year where I can put more effort into practicing gratitude. I’m a busy mind that craves busy hands. I get blue and grumpier than usual when it’s cold outside and I can’t do all my favorite warm weather things. I let it become too easy to forget just how rich and precious the life I’m living is. This season, I’m putting in a bigger effort and taking advantage of the slower pace that winter provides us here. Cuddles by the fireplace, anticipating our snow days, hot cocoa with extra marshmallows, and only a healthy amount of spring planning without taking too much away from the now. I have so much that I’m grateful for... This winter, I’m going to focus on showing it. • This week’s @iamcountryside is gratitude. Show us what that means to you. ❤️ • • #iamcountryside #parkseedco #sustainablesprout #seeds #gardenplanning #gardener #gardening #gardensofinstagram #gardenersofinstagram #vegetablegarden #thecopperfeathergarden #seedsaving #happymail #homesteadersofamerica #homesteader #homesteading #homestead #farmlife #smallfarm #womenwhofarm #farmher #ruralamerica #rurallife #rural #farmhouse #countryliving

She has two tails! Clay, a combat veteran/artist/poet that boards on our farm, found her while shuffling materials around for a new compost pile.

Our last beautiful harvest before it froze this week and killed all of our summer plants 🤷🏼‍♀️ I need to head out to a nursery today to see what kind of plant starters they have for winter veggies since we totally missed the mark for starting seedlings. 🤦🏼‍♀️ Today’s my only day off until Saturday so I hope to get a ton of garden sprucing done, I’ll be clearing out the garden and seeing what’s left to harvest! A day in the garden is a day well spent! ❤️ #ULBFrontYardHarvests

Lately I have been missing being pregnant... I loved carrying my sweet babes! I never wanted it to end (until Lucy was nearly 1 month late). Haha. . . Having my kiddos a year apart has been a challenge, physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually! But I really do love it. . . Sometimes I want another but all I need to do is go snuggle a client's new squish and I get my newborn fix 🤗 . . I love looking at pregnant photos and I'm so very blessed to have carried and sustained 2 beautiful souls through my own body. . . How great is God?!? . . . . . #imnotpregnant #reminiscing #pregnancy #homesteader #farmer #polkadots #dress #bellyshot #bump

Surprised my Gran last night flying into Sarasota last minute to wish my Gran' a very happy birthday on her 95th wishes on her Birthday cake. I called her up outside her home and could see her sitting on her rocking chair and wished her a happy birthday and then rang the doorbell. She then suddenly tells me to hold on. Chuckling I do with with a glee like smile. As she walks down the steps she calls out into the darkness, "who is it?" I in a fake accent say, "special delivery!" Gran opens the door? She first lights up like a christmas tree and then grabs me and hugs me close and exclaims, "hold on. Someone just called me and I need to tell them you are here and that i will talk to them later." Me...."wait. Gran.....? That was ME on the phone." Gran. "Wow you were fast! I had to inspect her face to see if she was joking since she's as sharp as a tack, (it's just the rest of her that looks like its crumbling away due to the aging process.) My Gran? She just looked at me and cackled away. We were good;) This woman was the woman who taught me how to drive donuts down icey mountain roads, how to descale fish, that guard donkeys were a real thing, that she had 2 for her homesteads on the mountain in the last almost 100 years...lol. Love this woman.

first_saturday_lime

Why is it still important to use First Saturday Lime in cold weather?. . The bugs may be getting scarce outside but they are seeking a warmer environment inside, and the perfect place for them to survive is in your animals bedding. That why some owners see the worse infestations in the autumn months. First Saturday Lime will repel insects like mites, lice, and fleas while drying on larvae left behind. Pour First Saturday Lime around your coop, barn, or shed and sprinkle a healthy amount in their bedding. Any animal can touch and even eat FSL for a calcium source. Using First Saturday Lime in their bedding will also help you: ✅Control bacteria. ✅Control moisture. ✅Absorb ammonia. ✅Deodorize. Picture taken by @chickens.and.wine 💚❤️💚❤️. #firstsaturdaylime #fallfarm #backyardpoultrymag #homesteader #chickenchick #chickensandwine

"We're living too short and dying too long." So much power in one simple sentence. We only get this one☝ body and whether you like it or not, the way you treat it NOW will affect your quality of life in the future. Everyone wants the cure for cancer and other disease, but no one is willing to look at trying to prevent it in the first place.

🍂 Day 12 of the #ThankfulHomesteader Photo Challenge - What I'm Reading. Well today I'm brushing up on a few gardening things! 🍂 Since moving to Arizona, my gardens have absolutely sucked. Everything is so dry and hot. Nothing like where I grew up in Texas. But 2019 is going to be our year! We are going to have a garden we can eat out of (and maybe provide the chickens a few yummy snacks!). 🍂 . . . #gardening #encyclopediaofgardening #gardeningtips #gardeninglife #30daysofthanksgiving #30dayphotochallenge #photochallenge #fallgardening #homesteadingmama #homesteadingwomen #homesteadliving #womenwhohomestead #homesteadersofinstagram #homesteadingcommunity #homesteadersofarizona #homesteadfarm #homesteader #homesteadinglife #fluffyhenfarm #crazychickenlady

Day 12 | What I’m Reading: These are the top of the top, my all-time favorite books- all homestead, homemade, homegrown related! Starting from the bottom of the stack... . The Heirloom Tomato by @heirloomharvester - Filled with gorgeous pictures and helpful descriptions of heirloom tomatoes. I’ve drooled over this one for years! Very coffee table-worthy! . Butchering: Poultry, Rabbit, Lamb, Goat, Pork by @adam_danforth - I love that this book is heavy on the photos! It’s got great step by step instructions and is perfect for beginners. We’ve used it to help us butcher poultry and pork so far. . Seed to Seed by Suzanne Ashworth - Regarded as one of the most comprehensive guides for learning to save every type of seed! This book taught me nearly everything I know about seed saving, and a good dose of plant botany as well! . Mushroom Cultivation by Tavis Lynch - the author of this one is local to us, and we’re wildly fortunate to have taken several in-person classes from him! He’s a great instructor and most definitely an expert in growing mushrooms. This is a great how-to book if you’d like to grow your own! . The Holistic Orchard by Michael Phillips - This is our orcharding bible! So much incredible information in this book about growing “better than organic” apples. There’s a DVD that you can get to accompany it, which I’d also recommend! . Apples of Uncommon Character by Rowan Jacobsen - This book is in my Top 3, and Karl and I consult it all the time. If you want to grow interesting, uncommon, or antique apple varieties, he gives the most brilliant descriptions and fun histories of many apple varieties! . Simple & Natural Soapmaking by @nerdyfarmwife - Another book in my Top 3, I feel like Jan wrote this one just for me! Her soap recipes really are simple, but inspired, and her attention to detail and thorough directions have made me a much more confident soap-maker. . Continued in comments. ⬇️⬇️⬇️

When your food dehydrator was free, cheap quality to begin with and you've used the tar out of it for 4 years.... You duct tape it when you crack off the side of a tray! 😂😂😂 Whatever dude, I just make stuff work. Nothing fancy or high class over here. This thing is so BASIC these jalapenos have been drying for 3 days now!!!! #homesteader #dehydratingfood #preservingfood #preservingpeppers #jalapenos

It's my birthday today. 💁‍♀️ nothing fancy, just lounged about, did some chores. Now I'm waiting on the Marine to get home so we can go get hay. *fingers crossed!* and the quote of the day is brought to you by @nicoshhomestead apparently I get better with age and I'm not a banana! (Who said this quote! Brownie points to who knows! Lol)

Do ya see Senorita Sassypants givin' that side eye? 😂 After a busy (and mostly unplugged 🙌) weekend of catching up on housework, spending time with family, grocery shopping, worship, and of course my Sunday afternoon nap, I was tired but actually not dreading the week ahead. I used to get the #monday blues soooo bad on Sundays. I'd get super anxious about the week ahead, pretty much dreaded the long hours I'd have to be at work, and just wanted the weekend to last forever. Even though it's been a cold, rainy Monday around here with several toddler tantrums & fussiness (#teethingsucks ), my Mondays now are SO different in a good way! My fit sistas started our new challenge today, me & the kiddos baked some bread (my house smells amazing btw), I got some work done while they napped, now we are grabbing a quick #superfood snack & then it's time to go make supper for the week & press play on my workout! So thankful that even though life is straight up crazy with all that's going on & my 2 tiny humans, Mondays don't have to suck! 😜✌💜
