I’m excited to be heading back to @altadenafm today! Btw we only have a very few “bacon” #avocados, so if you’re interested in them, don’t get there late. 📍Tongva land #supportyourlocalfarmersmarket #knowyourfarmer #queerfarmer #queerswhofarm #eatinseason #eatlocal #kingandkingranch #pomegranates #avocado #hachiyapersimmons

What a crazy hectic stressful day. And not just cause of elections. I decided it was an act of #selfcare to run my delivery and errands in my dad’s old #Volkswagen convertible. #kingandkingranch #queerfarmer #queerswhofarm

Has anyone else ever tried using #daffodils for repelling #gophers? I’m trying an experiment where I’m sticking these #narcissus (daffodil family) #bulbs into gopher mounds that are near our #avocadotrees and where they’ll get watered by irrigation. We’ll see. If nothing else, they’ll be pretty & the bees will like them 😀🐝🤷‍♂️ #betterthanpoison #Farmlife #avocadofarmer #kingandkingranch

Some of our #pomegranates are getting massive! #grilledcheesethecat is supervising. (Don’t tell FSMA peops) 🤫🐈🌳 #kingandkingranch #queerfarmers #pomegranate @theabundanttable #supportyourlocalcsa #eatinseason #eatlocal

Technically the biggest of the bacon variety #avocados are released today, meaning the oil content is high enough that they’ll ripen properly. Sadly, we lost almost our entire bacon #avocado (and Hass) crop when the temperature reached 120 degrees F in July. I would think what’s left would be huge, but they’re not big enough yet. Sigh. 🥑🌡🔥😣🌳🥑 #whatclimatechange? #hanginthere #almostCAavocadoseasonagain #farmlife #avocadofarmer #queerfarmer #queerswhofarm #kingandkingranch #CAgrown #eatlocal #eatinseason

Happy Solstice! 🌻🌞🌻 we took a little sunset 🌅 hike up the hill and said hi to the blooming yuccas, and watched the circling owls 🦉 in the dusk. Feeling gratitude for all the challenges and blessings of living in this beautiful place. #summersolstice #intuitiveplantmedicine2018 #kingandkingranch

Although the Thomas Fire (just barely) missed #kingandkingranch , persistent high temperatures, Santa Ana winds, and lack of rain means this is still a difficult season on the ranch. Windfall avocados rest in buckets, blown from the trees a few weeks shy of being ready to pick. #fillmore #california #santaanas #avocado #drought #farmlife #socal #eatlocal

Sweet collaboration of a #queerfarmer and a #queerherbalist Thanks @kingandkingranch! . Tag or DM to share your #queerswhofarm collaborations! . . “It's a good day for tea, it's finally raining in Fillmore! 💦 In all of #VenturaCo ! ☔️ So welcome after all the #thomasfire trauma. Now we're worried about mudslides though. Not for our farm, but a lot of our friends and neighbors. @mythic_mama and I started putting together this #tea during the first few days of the fire, with the advice of @catalystcommunityherbals, to share with our #community. It felt like something we could do in the face of our helplessness. 🌼🌱Post-fire resilience tea 🌿🌹 #Lemonbalm and #lavender to soothe anxiety #Rose for emotional heart support #Horehound and #calendula for lung support #Mint to help with digestion #Elderflower to support immunity All ingredients were grown or #foraged with love here at #kingandkingranch.

I guess the silver lining about the #SantaAnawinds blowing off 90% of our #lambhass #avocado crop is that the remaining fruit is gonna be massive. This puppy won't even be ready til about May. #kingandkingranch #fuckthesantaanas #farmlife #avocadofarmer #queerfarmers #queerswhofarm #familyfarm #avocados

Glad our #Pinkerton #avocados are hanging in there well, despite the ongoing Santa Ana winds and temps in the upper 90s causing a lot of fruit drop on other trees. Our 4 #trees of this variety have a significant #crop on them, which is nice after a whole lotta nuthin' last year. These puppies should be ready roughly mid/late November. #alternatebearing #farmlife #avocadotree #avocadofarmer #avocadotoast #FillmoreCA #VenturaCo #californiagrown #eatinseason #eatlocal #avocado #queerfarmer #kingandkingranch

If there was such a thing as a group of #cats hanging out together, I think it should be called a "murder" instead of (or in addition to) a group of crows. Our #barncats certainly do their job....and then some, to the detriment of many small birds. #theyrewatching #farmcats #farmcatsofinstagram #barncatsofinstagram #kingandkingranch

Lots of delicious beer tasting with @gregfleehart for @kaikrupa 's bday weekend, but I think this one, his own creation - #limonjelo was my fav. It includes dried #lemonverbena and #lemonbalm from our own farm - I may be biased 😉 Thanks for visiting and bringing all the delicious #beer, Greg!! #fancydrinkin #knowyourbrewer #knowyourfarmer #craftbeer #commonwealthbrewery #kingandkingranch

Unless we get a significantly taller ladder, we're pretty much done with Valencia #oranges 🍊 off the trees my #grandfather planted ~60 years ago. They were extra tasty this year, thanks grandpa!
