#NailedIt... ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ“ท๐ŸŽ๐ŸคณWe're still perfecting the art of the selfie ๐Ÿค”. Happy Friday!!! Wishing you a fabulous weekend โœŒ๏ธ๐Ÿ’–.

Making fresh mozzarella for pizza night, using our own raw milk! ๐Ÿง€ John humored me and filmed our typical process for insta stories, so scroll up to see his amused wordlessness and my giddy ridiculousness. ๐Ÿ˜

I try not to play favorites, but chives just might be my favorite. (Shhhh... don't tell the others)
.
They partner up beautifully with potatoes, eggs, salads, AND they have those charming purple puffs. Win, win, win!

What herbs are you loving right now? Bonus points if you include a recipe! ;)

Friday means family supper with the whole gang. Last week, it was Greek chicken for thirty (pictured above). This week, it's tacos. All weeks, it's crazy love. .

Pickup day...sigh...well, your #miniaussie puppy might not be super clean when you pick him or her up but know that they lived a very happy life while at Honey Locust Hills ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚ #dogmomproblems #farmlife #homedairy #homesteading #miniaussiesofinstagram #workingdogs #ladyfarmer #farmher #womenwhofarm #fancyfarmliving

My late-sown cucumber seedlings are up and flourishing in their new spot in the greenhouse! I usually have good germination rates on cucumbers but poor success when planting them out. They get frazzled by the sun or ravished by slugs. Fingers crossed that this year will be different. Ever the optimistic gardener. My cucamelons are nearly ready to exit the propagator too... so excited about those! ๐Ÿ˜

After housework was done, then it was outside to do a little work. I trimmed the lower limbs of the Crepe Myrtles at the coop.
.
This is the North side of the chicken coop. You can see the lower run, which was not on the coop plans. When the footings were dug for the foundation, I knew there had to be more space, so we added this lower run (or back section) you see, from the door left, and another section to the rectangular run on the South or (front side).To the right of the door is a cabinet for food storage, and access to the nesting boxes. I posted a pic of the roosting box and part of the front side, on April 13, if you want to take a look here. .
A lot of people ask me about my coop, and the area. One of these days hopefully, I'll do a blog post about it! ๐Ÿ˜Š

I pick some herbs to dry for tea and some to made some herbal salt with. What I love most with herbs is the wonderful scent they leave while I picking them. ๐Ÿ‘ƒโค

Out gathering wildflowers and vegetables after the rain this morning, in preparation for the farmstand today, and thinking how blessed we are to be able to do this ๐Ÿ’š Every day should start like this.

Hey @my_amazing_farm_life look who I got to spend the evening with!!!! Samson loved Domi, you can tell by the open mouth kiss he's trying to plant on her ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚ and holy moly Chris looks just like you ๐Ÿ˜ณ...talks like, smiles like...Tay and I told him so too ๐Ÿคฃ you have lovely kiddos ๐Ÿ’ž #greatpyrenees #greatpyreneesofthehour #greatpyreneesofinstagram #greatpyreneesofthemoment #workingdog #ladyfarmer #farmher #womenwhofarm #farmtour #homedairy #homesteading

You talkin' to me?

The kids and I were taste testing in the market garden last night. The lettuces are crisp and delicious (I was very worried about bitterness due to the heat). Even the large spinach leaves are juicy and tasty. The orach, a cousin to spinach, tasted like spinach when it is cooked. I hate cooked spinach (my mom force fed it to us as kids and I never learned to like it). So I'm not sure what to think about orach, as pretty as it is. My daughter who could eat raw radishes by the fistful says the radishes are juicy and crunchy like apples, and "just a teeny bit spicy" ๐Ÿ˜€ Of the 2 turnip varieties I planted, one variety has completely bolted, which is disappointing. The other is holding strong. Chard should be ready in another week. And hoping the peas should start flowering next week. All in all, despite the weather's mood swings this past month, things are turning out pretty darn good. ๐Ÿ˜Š

These poultry feeders are great for keeping the chickens from slinging feed everywhere, BUT they have one fault. The feed piles in the center in a big cone shape, and the chickens can't get to it. Quick fix: cut the top off a vinegar jug, set it in the center, then pour in the feed. The jug top directs the feed to the outer edge where the chickens can eat it. Done!

The herb garden of my dreams... and truly the bane of our existence for the past 3 months!!! It still pretty much looks like nothing, but all the perennials are in, and all of the annuals have finally been planted! The center circle of edible flowers looks lovely, with nasturtiums, pansies, and German chamomile in full bloom, and marigolds just starting to develop flowers. But the rest? Well, there have been big fails with entire patches of herbs that have failed to germinate (anise, valerian, angelica, to name a few), but other sparks of hope (calendula, salad burnet, saltwort, hyssop, and all three varieties of shiso are sprouting right up). I have a newfound appreciation for how big this 36x16-foot patch of earth is!! I'm realizing that I might need to plant more perennials next year because it will be a huge job each spring to get so many annuals in during the busy planting season for the rest of the garden, but for now we'll just see how things go. ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿƒ

๐ŸŒธEchinacea Blooming! I love Echinacea, Cone Flower, for its beauty and medicinal benefits. We usually make a tincture from its flowers. Echinacea tincture strengthens the immune system and decreases the common colds cycle. I love having beautiful medicine growing right in front of the door! It makes harvesting easy when you walk by it everyday. ๐Ÿ˜ŠโœŒ๏ธ๐ŸŒฑโ™ป๏ธ๐Ÿ’š

I love the time it takes to milk my girls. The sound of them munching on their oats, their breathing, our conversations, the milk hitting the pail, their earthy smell, their presence. I can tell them all the secrets of the world, they'll truly listen, and never spill a word. Somehow, though, I think they already know all the secrets of the world. Something in their eyes speak of an old world knowledge. Of course, I'm speaking of my cooperative does here. I got this one doe ๐Ÿ™„, she's my favorite because of her attitude ๐Ÿ”ฅ, she's also the bane of my existence because of her attitude ๐Ÿ˜ . Anyway, I do love me some goats. โค๏ธ๐Ÿโค๏ธ
'Be sure you know the condition of your flocks, give careful attention to your herds; for riches do not endure forever, and a crown is not secure for all generations. When the hay is removed and new growth appears and the grass from the hills is gathered in, the lambs will provide you with clothing, and the goats with the price of a field. You will have plenty of goats' milk to feed your family and to nourish your maidens.' Proverbs 27:23-27
