This is what I’m talking about @wormticklers_nursery This is our temple to cooking under our own effort. No corporates needed to fire this baby up. She sits in the centre of our back yard and oversees all that we do like an old friend. She wood-fires the best Italian pizzas, flatbreads and when she has cooled down, a cake gets thrown in at the end, making the most of all that energy. #woodfiredoven #woodfiredpizza #woodfiredfood #makeyourownenergy #permaculturegarden #suburbansustainability

Can anybody tell me what the heck this is on my cabbage plant? @migardener @offgridwithdougandstacy @thefundamentalhome @sslfamilyfarm I also found a cabbage worm πŸ› on a nearby plant. They look like eggs to me but I truly don’t know. I took them off but I still want to know what it was. #Gardening #SuburbanHomesteading #OrganicGardening #GrowAndIfThis #WhyIGarden #GrowYourOwnFood #UrbanSustainability #SuburbanSustainability #HealTheEarth #HealthyLiving #NutritionalFood

The chicken tractors are finished! The coop is 3’ x 4’ x 2’ attached to a 3’ x 6’ x 2’ run.

My buns aren't babies anymore. They're still very small however. I keep thinking they will grow, but it might be safe to say they are done. I feel like they only weight 2-3 pounds though and that seems small, even for dwarf rabbits. They are still sweet as can be and enjoying being outside in their new, bigger home. β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ #urbanfarm #urbanfarming #rabbits #rabbitsofinstagram #dwarfrabbit #suburbansustainability #suburbanhomestead #suburbanfarm

Shoutout to my brother and sister-in-law for having a backyard that is truly #goals. Highlights include: two ducks and three chickens who live in a homemade coop, a vegetable garden, several berry bushes and fruit trees, a natural meadow, a compost pile, a fire pit, a clothesline, an outdoor ping pong table, a cute dog, and a bat house. #pennsylvania #phonexville #suburbs #sustainability #suburbansustainability #ducks #chickens #garden #gardening #backyardgarden #naturalliving #imjealous

Two days old. Out of the 10 eggs in the incubator, 4 hatched. One didn't make it, and we have three left. These little guys grow so fast!

Welcome to the homestead bunny brothers! Today we added two dwarf bunny brothers to our mini-farm in the suburbs. These little guys will help add valuable manure to our compost. They are so small. They will stay inside until they are ambit bigger and I fix up their outside area.

When we started out, I knew nothing about gardening. Now I know just slightly more than nothing... there's so much to learn! This was the extent of my radish harvest this year. After trial and error, I have realized that I have one of my beds in too much shade and the soil is too hard. I'm ready to try again in the fall, but for tonight, we will feast on these two lonely babies. β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ #suburbansustainability #thehappygardeninglife #epicgardening #urbanorganicgardener #garden #urbangarden #gardening #ediblegardening #radish #green #growyourownfood #grow #urbangardenersrepublic

Babies are cooking away! This is my very first quail hatch ever... I am so nervous about everything. I am terrified that no one will hatch or something will go wrong. The incubator set up was pretty straightforward and easy.

I am slowly trying to make the switch to more sustainable products. I've started small with things that get daily use, or would typically be replaced often. A toothbrush is a seemingly insignificant item, but a single person could use 5 toothbrushes in an average year. These toothbrushes inevitably end up in a landfill where they can take 450-1000 years to break down. Wood materials biodegrade naturally and bamboo is one of the most sustainable wood products. I just love the cardboard packaging too! I will be adding it to my compost 😊. β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ #suburbansustainability #sustainableliving #sustainability #sustainable #ecoconscious #ecofriendly #thegreenroot #bamboo #bambootoothbrush #toothbrush #noplastics #plasticfree #biodegrade #biodegradeable #sustainablehome @the_greenroot

Blackberry blossoms. I have two varieties of blackberries growing. One has a light pink blossom and the other is white. I'm not sure what their varieties are called, but one has thorns and the other does not. We are expecting a pretty good harvest this year, considering we only planted them last year. They are spreading like wildfire! β€’ β€’ β€’ #suburbansustainability #thehappygardeninglife #epicgardening #urbanorganicgardener #grow #green #garden #gardens #gardening #blackberries #berries #growyourownfood #growyourown #flower #urbanfarm #urbangarden #urbanfarming #lobotany

I am so excited about my new compost tumbler. I am learning more about composting and reducing waste. It's a great way to turn food scraps into valuable nutrients for your garden, while saving pounds of trash from landfills. I have a large compost pile going for lawn clippings and leaves, but I'm planning on using this for my kitchen scraps. β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ #compost #composting #urbangarden #urbanfarm #urbanfarming #urbangardner #urbanorganicgardener #urbanorganicgarden #lobotany #epicgardening #epicgarden #thehappygardeninglife #suburbanfarm #suburbanhomestead #suburbansustainability #sustainability #sustainableliving

I got a little bit of planting done on this flood day. Most of Missouri experienced severe flooding this week, including my hometown. Although my house remained dry, many businesses and our high school were under water. Our school district has been out for 4 days. The flood waters are finally receding today and the sun came out to celebrate. 🌞 On another note, I am trying out a new planting method using grow bags. I purchased them from Amazon for $16 for 5 bags. Two of the bags are shown here. I need all the space I can get! β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ #urbangarden #suburbansustainability #urbanfarming #urbangardening #urbanorganicgarden #urbanotganicgardener #thehappygardeninglife #lobotany #epicgardening #epicgarden #organicgarden #garden #vegetablegarden #herb #herbgarden

I'm always looking for natural alternatives to traditionally chemically laden products. I would prefer to make many things myself, both because it's cheaper, and I can control exactly what goes into/on my body. I've been thinking about dying my hair for a while now (I've had grays since I was 17), but did not want to go the chemical route. I also wanted to stick to my natural color as much as possible. I chose this henna dye from Lush in Caca Brun. It was super messy and I don't recommend trying to do it by yourself like I did. I am anxiously awaiting the results and I will post when it's finished! β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ #natural #naturaldye #lush #lushhenna #naturalhair #naturalbodycare #suburbansustainability #chemicalfree

Made some more updates to the quail pen tonight and everyone seems content. I added some plants in pots to protect the roots. I also put down some more soil and sand. I want to see how the two compare, so I covered half with sand and half with soil. So far the quail seem to prefer the soil. I need to set up my Astro cap watering system from @astroegghomestead again. Their water is getting so dirty with all of this soil. What do you keep as bedding in your quail pens? β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ #knowyourfood #growyourownfood #minifarm #backyardbirds #backyardchickens #quail #quaileggs #urbanfarm #urbangarden #urbanfarming #urbangardening #urbanorganicgarden #quailpets #urbanquail #suburbansustainability #suburbanhomestead

Clean living starts with clean products. #himalayausa #bedifferent #toothpastetuesday #himalayatoothpaste #cleanliving #fluoridefree #cleanteeth #cleanproduct I try to reduce my exposure to toxic chemicals that are commonly used in everyday products. One of those is toothpaste. There are so many harmful ingredients in toothpaste.

Happy Easter 🐰 🐣🐰 Dyed quail eggs. We tried it the regular way with vinegar and it did not work out.. the vinegar dissolved all the quail markings off the egg. These were just dyed with food coloring and water.

This weekends garden project. We added a border around this bush and planted a few pollinator friendly plants, including 4 that are native to Missouri. I love the idea of creating a habitat for critters in my yard. We are also aiming to replace as much of the lawn as possible with edible landscaping. Lawns decrease biodiversity in an area and take up valuable water resources. β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ #sustainableliving #suburbanhomestead #suburbansustainability #suburban #garden #gardening #urbangardenersrepublic #thehappygardeninglife #beegarden #butterflygardens #greenthumb #green #grow #grownative #growyourown #growing #biodiversity

It cost me about $20 for all the materials and only took 15 minutes to make. 4lb box baking soda 3lb box washing soda 4 lb box epsom salt 1 package oxyclean free 3 bars of grated Castillo soap I combine them all in a 5 gallon bucket to store for the year. #homemade #diy #diylaundry #diylaundrysoap #diylaundrydetergent #diynatural #naturalhome #suburbansustainability #suburbanhomestead #suburban #laundry #detergent #diydetergent #inmyhouse #home

They LOVE their BarkBox toys that they get every month! The boxes come with two toys and 3 different kinds of treats. We have found that with two dogs, the money is totally worth it. Dog treats can be expensive and for $20 a month it's not too bad. Besides, by the time the next BarkBox comes in, Sadie has completely destroyed all her other toys... β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ #barkbox #barkboxday #barkboxtoys #dogs #doglife #dogtoys #doglover #dogmom #dog🐢 #dog #basenjimix #basenjiwhippet #bassetmix #bordercolliemix #adoptdontshop #adopt #adoptdontbuy #muttsofinstagram #mutt #dogstagram #dogsofinsta #dogoftheday #doglove #suburbansustainability #suburbanhomestead #suburban
