Finished yesterday with raking more leaves 😁 It is such a pleasure when you know that this material is so valuable. It will give us mineral rich food for years to come and this work has immidiate 😉 benefit for my body as well ☺️
.
Swipe to see how good I did 😛

Lõpetasin eilse päeva rehitsedes 😁 See tegevus muutub nauditavaks just sellest hetkest kui mõistad, et lehed on väga väärtuslik materjal. Sügislehtede kompost annab meile järgnevatel aastatel head mineraalide rikast toitu ja riisumine ise mõjub minu füüsisele väga hästi ☺️

Vaata teist pilti ka... näed, kui tubli ma olin 😛

Let's take a minute and celebrate farm life shall we? I love my girlfriends mini donkey. His name is Buckeye. And this tee makes me happy. 😍 we raise mini cows and love our horses but I sure do miss our mules and chickens. What's your favorite farm animal?!🐴🐮🐷🐏🦃🐓

Day 290/365 “Aji Dulce” peppers, Capsicum baccatum.
“Spice” peppers the 3 centered in the 1st photo came from a friend who brought seeds from Puerto Rico. The larger angular ones were in an envelope of saved seeds that I grew 5 years ago and don’t remember the original source maybe @southernexposureseed these peppers are sweet flesh, almost floral/fruity flavor, with some of the seeds being hot. The plants are quite productive, and they look neat! #funwithpeppers #bhfyear #ajidulce #peppers #orange #red #starkville #yearonthefarm #mississippi #smallfarm #spice

Going to miss these 😢😩😍💕 #flowerfarmer #flowerbouquet #zinnias #farmlife #smallfarm

Throwback two years ago, my first year growing in the field. Today my friend came over with his tractor and he's plowing a new patch that will almost double my small farm, I am excited to say the least 😬☺️ #dietrichfarms #flowerfarmer #plow #smallfarm #organic #girlboss #pacificnorthwest

Took a bite of a radish and then a turnip fresh from the garden! It’s crazy how sweet they are with the cooler temps! Definitely a fall veggie! Good thing I still have three 50ft rows of Johnny’s Tokyo turnips growing under row covers along with about 50ft of radish and arugula! Now if the bunching onions would hurry up!! PM us if you would like some turnips (have an abundance), radish or fresh salad greens!! #radish #turnip #fresh #nongmo #mmm #veggies #saladmix #greens #farm #iowa #madisoncounty #smallfarm #swiowa #rowcover #fall #garden @johnnys_seeds

New farm views.

Meet Bret @high.sierra.permaculture from Nevada city, California, United States 🇺🇸 “I live in Northern California with my partner Beth and son Sequoia on a 30 acre permaculture homestead. We became stewards to this bare piece of land a little over 2 years ago - and in that time built an amazing yurt as our home, a 1/4 acre garden, started an orchard, pasture chickens and doing whatever we can to maintain a healthy ecosystem on this beautiful property.

I became inspired to grow food as I became more aware of my impact on this world. Deep down, I knew growing my own food was a part of life and interconnectedness with nature I had been missing. I started learning about all the toxins and who-knows-what else is in our food. I began to buy organic foods and from there started with container gardening on my apartment balcony. I like being part of the natural cycle and sharing the abundance with others.

I live in a small town in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, called Nevada City. This location in California is a special Mediterranean climate that holds both unique growing opportunities with long seasons, as well as challenges with 6 months of drought and high temps.

A full-functioning homestead requires a lot of work year-round, so attention is divided between the garden and building projects, splitting firewood, tending chickens etc… The ultimate goal is to have other families living in community on our land to help share both the bounty and the workload.

I love that my food has zero miles associated with it. I love the feeling of resilience and self-sufficiency when I look in my pantry or cellar and see all the food I have available that I grew, that I didn’t have to spend money to buy. It’s rewarding to know I am capable of feeding my family and friends with my own two hands.

You can start your homestead, grow your own food, live a sustainable life and even generate your own income doing so - the key is to start where you can, think positively and always be taking small action steps towards your goals!”

Cuteness the kitten. On the prowl.

Me: Wow, check out the luffa! This stuff just doesn’t quit. You see that luffa, Bear? So great. I bet we should pick it before we get a frost. What do you think? Naw, we should be good for a little while. How about this cold, by the way? Crazy, am I right?!

Bear: 💤

Henry and Liza.

Honored to have @chrismurphyct tour the farm today! Tom got to expound upon his ideas for an Americorp style farm labor initiative, turning preserved national and state forest in New England into agricultural landgrants, and mobile USDA slaughter units for rural areas such as ours. (And Alana got to show off her beloved dogs!) Having a representative show up to lend an ear means the world to us; regardless of outcome, our voice as a small farm was heard. Farming is an inherently political act: to give up so much in pursuit of a life we believe in is nothing less than activism. Whether the nation pays attention or not...you can’t say we didn’t try. #ctfarms #smallfarm #livestockguardiandog #threegreatpyrenees #farmingispolitical #knowwhereyourfoodcomesfrom #votewithyourdollar #vote #chrismurphy
