I’ve always read about ladybugs sorting out aphids and other bugs on plants but I’ve never actually witnessed it... this is many years of gardening 🙈 anyways it’s so cool to see this wormwood literally covered in ladybugs that are eating the infestation of black bugs (I’m not even sure what kind they are 🤷‍♀️) permaculture is alive and well in our garden that was a dust bowl a few short months ago... what a difference water and mulch can make! #permaculture #permaculturegarden #africanwormwood #growyourown #urbanfarming #urbanhomestead #herbsthatheal #childrensgarden #veggiegarden #herbgardening

I went out to the garden this morning and sure enough the faithful chard is still growing strong under the cold frames. It’s one of the first veg to grow in the winter/spring and always one of the last to die. The leaves are tender enough for salad and the stems are crisp like celery. Best of all the color! The reds, yellows, oranges are so beautiful. #grateful

Snow peas are in the ground! The weather is finally Fall-like here is AUSTIN zone 8b and I am LOVING it! I cleaned up all the garden beds and replanted frost-hardy plants, replanted some straw bales whose starts had been eaten by slugs, and trimmed off diseases leaves. The garden looks so much better now! 😁😁😁

Con la paura che il tempo cambiasse in peggio, visto che ieri c'era un po' di vento ci siamo dedicati anche alla raccolta di alcuni frutti tra cui i melograni! Belli grossi e saporiti. Domani con più calma ci faccio una bottiglia di spremuta! Ora, ci carichiamo di reti, rastrello e sacchi di yuta e andiamo a lavorare! Buon martedì!😎 🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱

Con le olive raccolte ieri vi auguro una buona giornata a tutti voi! Forse oggi si finisce la raccolta 2018!🎉🎉 @federicoscomazzon queste piante hanno fruttato meglio, per fortuna!😌 Con tutta la fatica che si impiega, tra far zappare, potare, tagliare i così detti "frullacci", concimare e raccogliere, speriamo che l'anno prossimo sia più propizio! 🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱

I was able to get in the garden today for a couple of hours and was able to plant some wild flowers 💐 , winter veggies, and prep some seed potatoes 🥔. Being a new mom is so rewarding. I can’t wait till my baby girl is able to help me in the garden!

Good gorgeous evening! A beautiful moon tonight. God’s nightlight. # Genesis 1:16 And God made the two great lights—the greater light to rule the day and the lesser light to rule the night—and the stars. # My little lamp puts out a little loving glow. But God’s moon really steals the show! # I hope your evening is peaceful tonight. And thank you for all the visits on our little lunch selfie post. I knew I had IG friends with a great sense of humor! # Sleep tight my friends!

Having participated over the weekend with the native tradition of processing and cooking acorns in community with elders, tribal citizens and the general public, I now have a renewed perspective on this coveted woodland resource. I am also happy to report that the mature coast live oak on our HalfAcreHomestead is a producer this season and I hope the critters carry off and distribute the abundance throughout the neighboring pastures for future generations.

HELP! . Guys- I am squash illiterate! While we were at the pumpkin patch yesterday, I decided to be adventurous and grab a big #butternutsquash and a couple of #acornsquash . What do I do with them?

It appears that we lost Camille some time last night. When I let them out earlier, I didn’t see her...but sometimes they’re laying, so I wasn’t worried. But when she didn’t come to the door when I stepped out this afternoon, I went looking for her. She’s in the nest with her feet stretched straight out. I couldn’t see her head, but I think it was tucked under her weirdly. I didn’t see anything gross, but I was carrying the baby and so I didn’t look long. There are a few moments in life where I wish I could hide behind gender roles and call a husband to deal with it...but I’m the high heels and the power tools in my family, the mascara and the rubber gloves. In a moment of weakness, I texted my neighbor-husband @koppyski (🙈@berlymarie), and he offered to help tomorrow...but really, this is my job...but Viv’s working late and I can’t leave the baby unattended while I deal with it...and wearing the baby while handling dead poultry seems like the wrong call....but also I’m worried the others will start eating her. Doesn’t this make you all want chickens? So I’m going to have to deal with it by headlamp later...wish me luck. . . . #ladybirdsofatl #urbanegger #backyardchickens #mypetchicken #backyardpoultrymag #urbanhomestead #bungalowhomestead #urbanhomesteadatl #iamamodernfarmer #aglanta #camillethechicken #campinechicken #goldencampine #queerswhofarm #queerfarmers

The marigolds have really been one of the stars of the garden this year. They have kept making new flowers as we have kept dead heading them and help control garden pests. We will definitely be companion planting with them again :)

Got a lot of cheap cucumbers at the markets and turned them into quick and easy pickled cucumbers. Great for "ploughmans" type picnic lunches with home made bread, cheeses, other pickled veges and maybe a bit of ham! . . #growyourownfood #permaculture #mygarden #backyardgarden #urbanfarm #homestead #homesteading #practicalfrog #ruralliving #selfsufficiency #eatlocal #food storage #homesteader #homesteadlife #homegrown #urbanhomestead @practicalfrog #frugalliving #frugallife #simpleliving

The leaven was bubbling over this morning because I believed someone who told me that I would be more successful if I used 100% freshly milled rye for my starter. Who knows if they were right but it has been working so far. This recipe is taken from Book no 3 on ancient grains by Chad Robertson. He mentions that Kamut is naturally sweet and gives the loaf a golden color and since I can get it organically at @simplybulkmarket I had to try it. I’ll be gently folding this afternoon and will keep with my tradition (all two times) and will put it in the fridge overnight for the final rise. #newbiebaker

Albert is real good at finding the light _ I’m spending this week and next shutting down the garden. That means lots more time inside during these short and gloomy days. Which means lots of snuggling with this most delicate flower. _ Ps : I’ve decided Albert is a chi-tzu bc he has a (slightly less scruffy) twin out there called @jamielovesapples who looks and snores just like him.

But we’re back on track now! . 🍺 Today I made use of some of the fresh jujubes not fit for drying (I harvest and dry them to last all year).

It is no secret that I adore vintage items and chickens. One girlfriend combined both of those into my birthday present. She found this sweet, vintage egg crate on one of those '100 mile' yard sales. This little beauty can hold 6 dozen eggs. What do you think?

So I think this is Manitoba maple (or box elder). Apparently it sucks for wood burning BUT makes for great wood chips! Sooooooooo, anyone with a wood chipper want to help me out?

A little bit care for your plants and they will give you so much more in return. I've been growing a lot of the fruits and veggies that I eat. Its reduced my grocery bill, I know I'm eating pesticide free produce and it's right outside my door. You feel good growing your own food. Try it, start small. If your area doesn't get too much sun, lettuce does well in the shade. Move it around to get a little sun. Just start small.

This is how far our figs got this year! You can't really tell but they're only 1/2 inch big so definitely not to eating size yet. 😆We didn't expect to get any the first year of planting though so this was a fun surprise.

This is my small but mighty Bay Tree. In my opinion, fresh herbs are usually better than dried and this one is no exception. The only problem is that I’m tempted to use it faster than it can grow. It’s looking a little thin at the moment. 🌱My favorite go to recipe is to take a beef roast out of the freezer at night , put it into the crockpot and pour a whole bottle of red wine over it. I then crush a couple of fresh Bay leaves into the wine along with garlic and sliced onion and put it on low all night. When you wake up to the smell of beef in wine you always find the will to live again. Once I have coffee, I decide what other veg and herbs I’ll add a couple hours before serving and bacon is usually top of the list.

Scroll! I planted four or so surviving strawberry plants in this area at the beginning of the year to help with the runoff from the alley. This is the result. They’re not the best strawberries, but they are hearty. I’m curious to see if they all survive the winter, including these rock climbers! #chicago #chicagogarden #chicagofarmer #chicagogrown #urbanorganicgardener #organic #organicgardening #chicagogardener #strawberry #femalegardener #urbangardening #urbanhomestead #strawberries #sustainableliving #diy #urbanforaging #chicagostyle #growyourown #veganfood #urbanhomestead #vegetablegarden #plantsomethinggreen #containergardening #raisedbedgarden #citygarden #cityfarm #winteriscoming #gardening #raisedbeds #gardenersofinstagram #perennialgarden

OMG I loved this weekend so hard. This is a pic of me absolutely BLISSED OUT after bringing home over 100 new plants. So many new plant babies!!! Edibles and flowering ornamentals for the birds and pollinators. Yay!!! . My local nursery has a great fall sale that I plan my year around. I spent a little over $200 for all these plants. I buy small plants, they’re cheap, transplant better, and quickly catch up in size. It’s important to realize that some of these are going to die too, so no point in buying bigger, more expensive ones. I used to beat myself up about plant deaths and feel like if I was a ‘good gardener’ everything would flourish, but that’s just not true. I’m very careful about buying the right plant for the right place (the most important and hardest thing to do when plant shopping!) but some of them still aren’t going to be able to hang with our clay soil, or they may get shaded out, or they may be too slow to compete with the weeds, or maybe they’ll get taken out by pests before I have a chance to notice...🤷‍♀️ It happens! This is just part of the process. I’ve gotten a lot better at predicting which plants will do well, but there will still be a few deaths. Next year I’ll be back at the sale and will fill any empty spaces with the plants that thrived. . Some of the plants I am most excited about: a new citrus to add to our collection, Vaniglia Sanguigno, a vanilla blood orange (which my son helped plant in second pic 💕). Three more blueberries, so we now have 7 on our little urban homestead. Some clematis vines that can handle some shade and will hopefully give us and our neighbors some privacy. A Vitex tree, which is not only beautiful but also super drought tolerant and has lots of medicinal qualities. And a large shrub called Family Jewels which has big hairy seed balls that look exactly like their name implies 😳😂 . I’ll be busy planting this week! This would take me a day to plant and mulch if it weren’t for having to put everything in gopher baskets. With the baskets (plus being a SAHM without much child free time) it will take me the whole week. Damn gophers. But even they can’t ruin my mood. New plant babies!!! Yay yay yay!!!
