Isn't this the truth! 😂 I borrowed this from @alphabutlercharlie and couldn't agree more! As we move in the direction of trying to buy a small piece of property, I know what lies ahead. Lots of budgeting (thank you @daveramsey for teaching us well), sacrificing, and praying. But to have our sweet horses at home again, to be able to have chickens again, and grow a big garden again - it will be worth every sacrifice. • • #smallfarmlife #welovechickens #ramseyfangirl #livelikenooneelse #maybeevenadogagain #livesustainably #hopesanddreams #bettermakelotsofsoap #maybesomeday

More chicken pictures. I finally got a pretty decent picture of our hen-hatched chick. #chickens #smallfarmlife

I harvested tomatoes twice today and they are still going strong & showing no signs of slowing. They are ALL still covered in blossoms so I can see they are not done. I'm overwhelmed with joy just looking at them. I had one battle with oil Beatles but had them wiped out in 48 hours. I feel so blessed to not have any diseases or pests in our garden. 💖 with the exception of an occasional opossum eating cantaloupes & watermelons. If anyone has any suggestions on how to keep them away, I'd love to hear. #smallfarmlife #smallfarm #modernhomesteading #iamamodernhomesteader #happygardner #organicgardening #tomatoes

Some of you commented or asked about the squash plant in yesterdays "mitten and sheep" post- it's a volunteer! We throw lots of squash and pumpkins to the sheep every fall and have loads of free growing plants. Generally the ewes leave them alone until they are just about ripe, then go through and eat them all. This one, tho, is so big nobody has eaten any! See 11 year old grandson in first photo for size reference! This thing runs nearly 15 feet! And neither squash vine borers or striped cucumber beetles have harmed it 😀 Looks like a Kuri or maybe Golden Hubbard, but could be a cross And there's that lamb again 😁 #smallfarmlife #smallfamilyfarm #

Megan’s 3rd day with the sheep. She is working the circle and getting used to learning how to move the sheep. At this point we are just focusing on familiarity more than anything else. She does 2, 15 minute sessions per day at this point. #linessafarms #herdingdog #herdingpuppy #bordercollie #sheepherding #puppy #workinglivestock #hobbyfarm #sheep #sheepfarming #smallfarm #smallfarmlife #indianafarm #indianafarmer #lamb #lambs

Little seedlings appear to be so delicate but look how strong they are pushing the soil up as they grow towards the light. Side note, there are actually supposed to be one per cell but sometimes I accidentally drop more seeds (they’re usually tiny!) so when they’re a bit bigger than this I come along and pull out or pinch off the extras. (Depending on the plant and unless they’re supposed to be multi seeded, If you have a lot of multiples in cells when they’re planted out they mess up the spacing and everything can become too crowded resulting in potentially smaller fruit/plants)

A view from the farm vehicle. There has to be some lucky proverb about riding with pumpkins in the car, right? #firstpumpkingoeshomewiththefarmer #autumn🍁 #fallfarmfeels #thegreatpumpkin #smallfarmlife

Abundance from our little veggie patch 🌱🌞 This was our Saturday, harvesting and putting up veggies for the winter. Some was kept fresh for the week and the rest was blanched or roasted and then frozen. This will be our first year with our own harvest in the freezer - I can't wait to pull out some beautiful sunny tomatoes on a snowy day 😊 . . . #eatwhatyougrow #growwhatyoueat #kitchengarden #homegrown #growfromseed #growsomethinggreen #growfood #newbiegardener #newbiefarmer #humanswhogrowfood #ecofriendly #eatlocal #eatyourveggies #sustainableliving #zerowaste #zerowastefood #zerowastejourney #goingzerowaste #yayforearth #lowimpactliving #smallfarmlife #simpleliving #slowliving #preservingtheharvest #eatinglocalisradical #seasonaleating #eatinseason #homegrownveggies #homegrowntomatoes #homegrown

I am glad we filled in the ornamental pond soon after we arrived on Harmony Farm. Pretty as it was, it wasn’t practical and it was too close to the house, not to mention an attraction for snakes. I think this was the first job we undertook on the farm nearly 2 1/2 years ago. Time flies.... #countrylandscape #australiancountrylife #lifeinthecountry #smallfarmlife #rurallife #rurallove

Uh oh, we've got some runners! This is why gates have latches that need to be secured EVERY TIME! Good thing they were able to be walked right back in. #FreeRange #AlbertaAg #SmallFarmLife #CanIBlameSomeone #DadDidIt #Thanksgiving #Turkey

Our wisteria currently growing in a pot that we grew from a cutting taken about 3.5 years ago. Patiently waiting for an arbour or something of the sort to climb over and hoping it will be over an outdoor eating space in the future. Theres alot of patient waiting around here when the list is so long 😄 #wisteria #gardening #springtime #australia #farmlife #smallfarmlife

I've had so many cucumbers and made so many pickles that we've had to bring in a second refrigerator just to keep them all! Garlic & Dill or Bread & Butter?!? What's your favorite way to eat a pickle? #cucumbers #instagardeners #iamamodernhomesteader #modernhomesteading #homesteading #growyourownfood #gardnersofinstagram #gardeningseason #garden #gardening #countryliving #countrylife #smallfarm #smallfarmlife #pickles #blessedlife

Out checking on the dry cows and bred heifers yesterday. Would someone please tell them they can start calving anytime now? They apparently don't wanna listen to me! #smallfarmlife #waitingforcalves #pasturedcows #pastureddairy #organicdairy

PSA FOR ALL MY GOAT PEOPLE. That lovely pasture grass that goes to seed and blows beautifully in the wind while capturing that late summer light can cause FEROCIOUS diarrhea. 😂 Ask me how I know not once, not twice, but now three times 🤦🏼‍♀️ As always thank you @beefruitfulacres for your wisdom in situations like this!

Snow and grossness outside means time to start walking away at the mound of stuff inside that's been neglected.

Hanging out on this super rainy Sunday with Blizzard, my new house buddy. While preparing for the hurricane I noticed she had a malformed foot. So of course I brought her in the house! My husband is so amazing to put up with me and my chicken fetish. Blizz and I are playing along with @chickens.and.wine for #chickenselfiesunday and @lazy_b_acres for #silkiesnugglesunday. #smallfarm #smallfarmlife #farm #farmlife #chickens #chickenlife #chickenlove #chickensofig #chickensofinstagram #silkies #silkie #silkiechicken #silkiesofinstagram #housechicken #spoiledchickens

#Repost @themoderndaysettler • • • • • Hopping into a beautiful sunny weekend! 🌞 Had a great visit with Kirsten from @hostilevalleyliving last night and this morning. She took a pit stop here along her way to the Mother Earth News Fair. Sadly due to new puppy and husband out of town for work I couldn’t make the trip with her. But at least she got to stop along the way for a nice long visit! Ever since meeting her for the first time two years ago we have gotten together a couple times a year since. We obviously bond hard over goats and other homesteady things, but I think I have her convinced that she need pigs. 😁 Big Marie can win ANYONE over. Already looking forward to making a trip up to visit her this winter to see the house remodel! #babygoats #goatkids #dairygoats #goatstagram #bouncybouncy #dairygoatsofinstagram #instagramhomesteaders #goatkidsarethebestkids #smallfarmlife #homesteadlife

6 new cows/heifers arrived today. Real crossbreed mongrels. A mix of Jersey, British Friesian, Northern Dairy Shorthorn, Ayrshire, Guernsey and Normande. All part of our pursuit to breed the best adapted cow for our land and system. All from a really lovely farm in Cornwall. Start milking again tomorrow.

I’m just going to say this. Farming in a non farming society is just plain hard in the months of may and September. That is all. Back to harvesting for csa. Ps I am thankful for the two meals a friend brought to my family after a long processing day yesterday. #smallfarmlife #rootedinvermont #realorganic

It is with the heaviest of hearts this morning that we say goodbye to the sweetest, friendliest, and coolest chicken on the planet. Last night Minnie Pearl lost her battle with everything she had going on. We will never know what it was, all we know is that it started out as wry neck and she never bounced back. She had become my best buddy. Min Pen went everywhere with me. If she couldn’t go in, then I didn’t go. She made friends wherever she went and changed so many peoples views on chickens. I know that there would be people that would look at her and ask why I didn’t put her out of her misery, but quality of life is in the eye of the owner. This chicken had such a wonderful life while she was here, even on her worst days. Those days were the ones where we bonded the most. Animals know when you are trying to help them. After medications, feedings and a bath she would settle in for some snuggle time as if to say thank you. Y’all, farming is hard, but so worth it! As much as my heart hurts today, I feel so good knowing that she was our chicken and we did the best we could for her. #smallfarm #smallfarmlife #farm #farmlife #chickens #chickensofinstagram #chickenlife #chickenlove #chickensofig #silkiechicken #silkies #silkie #farmingishard
