MOST RECENT

So I have been busy pickling and preserving all the excess fruit and veg I have at the moment. Something new for this year is tomato pasta sauces with all homegrown ingredients. My aim has been to grow enough tomatoes for this and I have definitely achieved it this year as I can't keep up with the tomato picking let alone cooking!!!

apa sih yang bisa kita lakukan untuk mengurangi jejak karbon?

hal sederhana yang paling bisa saya lakukan yaitu mengurangi penggunaan kendaraan bermotor untuk jarak yang dekat yaitu mengantar mas Andra sekolah skalian belanja ke tukang sayur dengan berjalan kaki.

hal lainnya yaitu dengan homesteading atau hidup mandiri dengan menghasilkan bahan pangan sendiri.setidaknya untuk memenuhi kebutuhan sayur dan buah atau bahkan beternak.

saya pun mulai tertarik dengan ini karna sebenernya ibu saya sudah melakukannya sejak dulu. beliau menanam bermacam2 tanaman sayur dan buah di sekitar rumah saya agar dimanfaatkan hasilnya untuk konsumsi di rumah. begitu juga dengan mertua yang di rumahnya terdapat bermacam2 tanaman obat, hias dan buah serta kolam ikan. ketika berlibur pernah saya melihat alm. ayah mertua dan ibu mertua mengurus kebunnya bersama2 dan itu membuat saya merasa hal itu adalah hal romantis yang dilakukan pasangan suami istri di hari tua nya 😍

berkebun pun katanya dapat meningkatkan mood untuk mencegah depresi.

Lalu bagaimana dengan kita yang tidak dibesarkan dengan pengetahuan dan keahlian tersebut atau cuma punya sedikit pengetahuan dan pengalaman untuk hidup mandiri untuk memulainya?

yaitu hanya dengan membuat perubahan kecil setiap harinya di kehidupan keluarga agar bergerak ke hidup yang lebih sustainable (mandiri). Mungkin, terutama untuk kita yang tidak punya lahan untuk menanam sumber makanannya sendiri, kita nggak bakalan memulai bercocok tanam di kebun.  Tapi masih ada cara lain untuk hidup sustainable, alternatif untuk kita berarti harus mendukung petani lokal untuk mensuplai sumber makananmu dan kita juga bisa menghilangkan banyak sampah yang biasanya muncul akibat munculnya rantai pengadaan produk termasuk juga mengurangi penggunaan sumberdaya energi yang tidak bisa diperbaharui.

materi homesteading ini ternyata sangat menarik dan membuat saya berpikir bahwa kita sebenernya sangat perlu memiliki life skill sebagai bekal hidup mandiri.

We are definitely not anti-vacation, not at all. In fact, we do our fair share of traveling throughout the year. But the thing we love the most? That we never feel like we need to "escape" from our lives. We always look forward to coming home almost as much as we look forward to vacationing. But this did not happen by accident-- it was the result of some very deliberate & conscious choices and sacrifices in order to set up the life we truly wanted... And yep-- it has been utterly and completely worth it. 
What are you doing today to create the life you don't need to escape from? 🙂

It's easy to feel all alone in this world. The closer we draw to God, the better able He is to shape us and mold us. It may feel lonely, overwhelming. You may lose friendships. Your plans may change as He directs your path. Things that were once important, may not be so important now. This is all okay. It will all work out in His time, for His good will. Becoming the woman God wants you to be will take time, love, guidance and patience. Become her anyway .... #countrygirl #farmlife #homesteading #farmgirl #hsconstruction #hardhatandlipstick #doublehhomestead #hh_homestead

When you try and sneak off for a nice quiet walk on your own to check the fences 😎 #noalonetimeforme

Had excess tomatoes this week! Roasted them up with some spices in the wood oven! Lovely rich colour and Smokey flavour. Will make a great pizza sauce!

Freshly harvested spinach leaves from my garden. My mum wanted some for a salad. The spinach grew super quick 👍#homegrown #homesteading #spinach #healthy

September 19th 2018 My New thick pomegranate pre-bonsai trunk, taken from an air layering, is developing its first vestige of branch. It took only 21 days.

La bellezza di questa pianta grassa pelosa è data, oltre che dalla sua piccolezza, da questa ragnatela così perfetta nelle sue immagine, proprio come la tessitura fatta da un ragno.
Sono piccole ma sanno come proteggersi e in questo sono dei grandi!👍🌵🕸

Bönan ’Blauhilde’ har fantastiska färger! Gör arbetet till en fröjd ☺️🇺🇸The bean ‘Blauhilde’ has some amazing colors! Nature rocks!✌🏽#bean #beanblauhilde #bönor #bönanblauhilde #homesteading #homestead #självförsörjning #nofilter

Altra piantina grassa pelosa! La trovo elegante e armoniosa, precisa tra una foglia e l'altra. Niente è scontato in quello che vedono i nostri occhi! La natura sa il fatto suo e noi dobbiamo averne cura, sempre!
Peccato che il periodo di fioritura è già passato perché fa un bel fiorellino, ma non mancherò per la prossima volta!🌵
