Well the worst part of keeping chickens happened today, we lost one of our silver laced wyandotte girls. Yesterday everyone was healthy and normal, and today she laid down and wouldn’t get up. You could tell something was wrong, so we separated her and did all we could to help, but she didn’t make it. . We don’t really know why. She wasn’t egg bound, she looked perfect last night, and everyone else appears to be happy and healthy. Unfortunately this is just how it goes sometimes. It’s a hard lesson to learn that regardless of the time and energy you put in to thoughtfully raising an animal, it can still die. . It’s not the beautiful side of farming, and it’s not fun part to share, but it’s part of the package when you have a hand in where your food comes from. Eggs don’t magically appear at the grocery store. So much love goes into each of these hens we raise and we feel good knowing they have the best and happiest lives. . That girl spent most of her days soaking up the sunshine, and digging in the dirt. She had a warm and clean coop to come back to every night, and the coziest spot to lay her eggs. . So even though it’s a loss, I’m happy knowing she enjoyed the little life she had. I’m proud to care for these girls and enjoy the fresh eggs and entertainment they give back to us. I’ll always be a #chickenlady. . @iamcountryside
Who else has little people that seem to be constantly hungry 😋? My girls love a grazing picnic (fabulous for after school re-fuel 😉) and it’s the perfect way to help increase their fruit & veg intake - winning 💪 #eatlocal#eatfresh#eattherainbow
Deliciousness in two minutes from one of my favourites @deliciousllyella 🌱 . You’ll need: 1 ripe frozen banana (freezing them makes the smoothie so much creamier, but don’t worry if you don’t have any in the freezer fresh works too) 1 big handful of spinach 1 date 1 or 2 tablespoons of shelled hemp seeds (great plant-based protein) 1 teaspoon of almond butter 1 teaspoon of chia seeds (good for our omega-3’s) and any plant-based milk, plus a couple of ice cubes Blend in a high speed blender till smooth and enjoy immediately 😋🌱 So quick, so yum and such an easy way to get a couple of portions of fruit and veg in first thing in the morning.

I. Love. Nature. Oh and I also love Nick (@growingbacktoeden) #repost @growingbacktoeden ・・・ Talk about a permaculture paradise! I've got comfrey, Mullen, luffas, birdhouse gourds, strawberries, cucamelons, marigolds, and sunflowers all in this little section of the garden! A lot of people don't realize that you can easily have a permaculture garden and have it look amazing at the same time lol. I've seen quite a few that just weren't planned correctly in the beginning and they grow into a giant mess (in my opinion...). The most important part in starting a garden is the planning stage, and thats whether its a permaculture garden (or even a food forest for that matter) or a traditional garden with rows. Without good plans a huge mess will typically occur and things won't always do all that well. For the folks that live for a permaculture garden or food forest, don't get me wrong I LOVE permaculture!! I really do! If I owned a good size chunk of my own land I'd without a doubt have the majority of it planted in a dense fully productive permaculture food forest paradise! Everything down the "weeds" will be a benefital part of the system. Now if I owned my own land and had all of that going on, I still would make sure to have my traditional BTE style garden somewhere on it, with lots of nice straight rows, and without a weed in sight lol. I really can't wait till the day I have my own place! I hope I'm still doing this kind of thing with IG, FB, or YouTube when I get it, because I really think you all will love what I'd do to it and how I'd go about doing it all!! I mean it's my ultimate dream, so just imagine the planning I've already put into that project I've always wanted to start!!! It's going to be incredible!! I'm so looking forward to it, even if it might be years away from where I am right now!! I'll get there eventually I'm sure!!
We are super excited to collaborate with @cafevinofoco this year! Stay tuned for more farm fresh veges to eat with your tapas, and life skills taught to our teens by working with this awesome local business! . . Spinach!!!! Spinach and other leafy greens like kale, Swiss chard and collards are jam-packed with good-for-your-brain nutrients, such as folate, iron, calcium and vitamins E and K. This appears to offer the brain protection by fending off things like dementia in older adults. . . We can't wait for our spinach to start growing in a couple shorts months! . . Here's a recipe for you to try: Creamy Green 1 avocado (ripe, peeled and pit removed) 1 frozen small to medium banana (ripe and peeled) 1 orange (peeled and seeds removed) ½-1 cup of spinach 1-1 ½ cups of unsweetened vanilla almond milk

Movie Time! Maple 🍁 Syrup isn’t quite done so we are staying up late and watching a movie while we finish it up. Put in just over 20 gallons of sap today and hope to come out with a half gallon of syrup. So worth it. #latenightmovie#maplesyrupseason#moviesnacks
Crazy to look back to where we started. This was a blank canvas back in October. We have tilled god knows how many times, installed an irrigation system, set up a greenhouse, and now we are getting ready to start harvesting. We still have a ton of work ahead and plenty of blemishes, but we are very excited for the future.
