1️⃣2️⃣3️⃣ gallons of bone-broth🍲 An old produce bag from the grocery store filled with odds and ends of #carrots #celery and #onion. A chicken 🐓 carcass from last nights roast and one great BIG head of #local #organic #garlic. This may be #zerowasteliving but I also know it wouldn’t have been “exciting” to share this information before the industrial revolution. I’m a wannabe #homesteader and the sight of canned #bonebroth in my home 🏠 fills my chest with warm fuzzy good momma feelings. Simple. Free. Health. #foodscraps #closingtheloop #homecook #naturalimmunity #regenerativeliving #compost #soil #thezerowastemom #canning

I aim to step up my NO-LAWN game. 2018 marks my first year planting a cover crop of these winter peas and crimson clover. Because $6.00 on @bakercreekseeds should give me lovely soil ready for spring plantings of front yard edible flowers, medicinal herbs, and of course nutrient-dense veg. I have zinnias, dianthus, nasturtium, borage, echinacea, ginger, lemon balm, fenugreek, cauliflower, heirloom tomatoes, artichoke....oh yes this list goes ON and ON this year. 2018 is my year to really truly evolve. #urbangarden #urbanfarm #frontyardgarden #covercrop #womenwhofarm #preppers #foodaccess #healthysoil #organiclife #organicgardening

Mid-January + dreeeeaaming of sweet summertime on the farm. When skies are bright, the days are long, the trees are leafy, the grass is green, the plots are full + the breeze is so, so sweet. ☀️🌳🌾🍃

Yep. #timetogotowork ! I’ve already worked 9 hours, ran some errands after work, came back home to the #homestead , fed the animals, and cooked fajitas for hubby and I and cleaned up the kitchen. #louisthehusky is parked next to me, #sakè the #kitty is cuddled on the other side and #tillie the #beagle is all cozied up with #hubby , all tucked into bed already. I’ve got my #republicoftea in my favorite #hope mug and I’m settling in for a few more hours at my laptop. I’m tired. But that’s ok. Im running after goas and #hopesanddreams so I’m happy to put in the #overtime ! Besides... my #coworkersarethebest and the view is #comforting . Yes- #christmasisstillup 😂#dontjudgeme

A new perspective / I don't often photograph the back of the coop (though it's one of my fave sides). This was sometime yesterday when the snow was still falling! It ended up being about 8.5 inches total. Harriett (our buff hen) 🐓seems to have a little frost bite on her floppy comb. So I've put some coconut oil & Hen Healer on it for now. Nathan also put a makeshift heat lamp (30 watt bulb in a tin can) inside the coop behind the Hardy boy books. I'll probably switch it off before bed, but at least it will be a little warmer in there for them. #hawriverhomestead

Coppa recipe!  My hubby found a book at Goodwill called "Home Preserving Made Easy" circa 1975.  Love looking through older books to learn older styles of meals and preservation.  Some of the techniques have changed but the concepts and the flavor combinations are interesting to read.  I also find, in most cases, the recipes are not as complicated and don't require a gazillion ingredients!⠀

As our move out to the country approaches we decided to get ourselves a Blue Orpington pair (haven’t decided on names just yet)! A sweet little pullet and cockerel that couldn’t be more than two months old and are just oh so adorable 😍 I can’t wait to see what a big boy and big girl they grow up to be! And yes I’m 100% breeding him to my lavender Orpington Tina and I hope to get her a Lavender Orpington roo eventually as well! Oh what a beautiful flock mine is becoming, I love how many heritage/specialty breeds we have now! 🐓 The next few breeds on the list are Black Copper Marans, Blue Laced Red Wyandotte, Ayam Cemani and of course a few more Easter Eggers cuz their eggs are my fav... 🤣 
P.S. if your curious why they are in a large dog crate, it’s because new flock members always go through a quarantining process which usually lasts 3-4 weeks (to make sure they are not carriers of sickness or disease that could be spread to my existing flock) if your at all curious on what’s the best way to do this, click the link in my bio which will take you to my YouTube. I’ve posted a video all about quarantining your flock. 👍🏻

Especially corset on sad days, it always makes me feel better! Now I'm making dinner so I'm off the couch for things other than "have too" chores! I think that's a good thing, don't you?  Have a great dinner and make it with someone special!

My instant pot is getting quite the workout these days 😉 Another part of meal prep done! Organic grassfed yogurt 🌱🐄 that I will strain and make into Greek yogurt.  My whey will either be used for baking or pancakes (my husband and kids can enjoy that) or at the very least it will go to our hens 🐔🐔🐔🐔. .

Trying not to waste. I pulled 2 roosters from the freezer two days ago and cooked them up. We ate one the night before last and one last night. This morning I set about draining the stock and pulling every morsel of meat that I could get off of the two carcasses. It is amazing what's left over! This includes the hearts and gizzards, all the back and neck meat (I leave my necks on when I butcher), and all of the leftover leg, wing, and breast meat. 
It's going into the soup pot along with the stock and vegetables to make our supper tonight.
Two roosters that were raised here on our farm, butchered with the help of my kids, and that have now fed us 3 nights in a row. I am thankful for God's provision, for this lifestyle, and for the knowledge of where our food comes from. ❤

Life from the eyes of a toddler - by Sullivan
Emotional beings, transition-haters, the epitome of being unwell with the moment when it's not as expected. So much life in them, so much love. That magical feeling when your being becomes it's own, looking at you, dead-eying you and telling you unabashedly "I love you" without reserve. A purity of being fully in what they're feeling, what they don't like, what they can do despite what is verbally said. Perfect as they are for this moment, in this moment, everything influences them and changes them just a bit more for the next. Beautiful to see, beautiful to be with this small person - the keeper of another fully independently-thinking person. A sacred position. Uplifting and challenging and opening and testing. Gorgeous, sparkle-filled life. Life opens up when you're there for it ✨

Have you ever seen such dramatic texture in a log cabin?  This peeked my interest, along with the history behind it.  Constructed in 1869 at Painted Woods by Joseph Henry Taylor, a printer, newspaper man, author.

From no snow a few days ago to a sprinkle yesterday 💁 Give me all the snow you want if it's accompanied by this weather! Just gorgeous, huge sun, around 0 degrees celcius. Even Sullivan looked out of the yurt and said "YAY! Let's go, Mama!".

Our little fox is becoming more comfortable with our presence. We found this sleeping spot in the snow just 20 feet down hill from the rv. As you can see by the footprints, Avalon actually found it first😅🐺🚐🌲🌳#fox #forestfamily #naturebaby #nochildleftinside #forestchild #homestead #homesteading #homesteader #homesteadkids #fulltimefamilies

I should say that the best thing about raising our own hogs is knowing the meat in my freezer was raised ethically and humanely. But I'm just gonna admit it, the best thing is there's always #bacon in my house😆🐷

We recycled our Christmas tree this year by cutting it us and adding it to our existing brush piles we have been building. This helps to create a habitat for the local rabbit population in an area further from the house. 
By doing this, we create a good source for our local predators that is far from the house where our chickens live. If you give them a natural food source, they are less likely to have to search as far for more. ☺

What did you all do to recycle/reuse your Christmas tree?

We recycled our Christmas tree this year by cutting it us and adding it to our existing brush piles we have been building. This helps to create a habitat for the local rabbit population in an area further from the house. By doing this, we create a good source for our local predators that is far from the house where our chickens live. If you give them a natural food source, they are less likely to have to search as far for more. ☺ What did you all do to recycle/reuse your Christmas tree? #VoglHomestead  #wildlife  #wildlifehabitat  #recycling  #rabbit  #brushpile  #christmastree  #christmastreerecycling  #reuse  #ecofriendly  #homestead  #homesteading  #homesteader

DIY detergent with 5 ingredients! ⠀
⠀
✨1 bar @doterra Serenity soap⠀
✨4 cups Arm & Hammer washing soda⠀
✨4 cups Borax⠀
✨15 drops Lemon essential oil⠀
✨15 drops Lavender essential oil⠀
⠀
⠀
It was so easy - I even took the easy way out and just chopped up the soap with a knife. I'm pretty lazy when it comes to "clean up" so the less I have to clean up the better. ⠀
⠀
The recipe recommended putting the soap in your food processor, but I knew there had to be an easier way. I chopped the soap pretty finely, and added it in with the dry ingredients. Finally I dropped in the lemon & lavender essential oil, and gave it a few shakes/stirs. ⠀
⠀
I use two small scoops per load of laundry, and it works like a charm (for half the cost of our regular laundry soap)! ⠀
⠀
Lemon essential oil is a natural odor neutralizer, so it's perfect in laundry soap. It also purifies and cleanses like a pro! Lavender essential oil promotes restful sleep and is great when washing linens. It's also nice for those who like a fresh scent on their clothes, but have sensitive skin. Lavender is a natural skin soothing agent. ⠀
⠀
Have you made your own detergent before? Next up I need to make wool dryer balls! #hawriverhomestead

If I had the time, I would look up and chart out alllll the seed prices and plants to see what the best value was. 
I could care less about what’s trendy or what “name” it is. 
I care about value and productivity. ...
What’s your favorite?

Friday Frontier: Plowing Ahead. We finally bought a replacement Ram truck.  It's red like our last one and was locally owned and operated.  It also has a plow.  And the timing couldn't have been better.  We got hit yesterday with another big snowstorm. ❄️❄️❄️❄️.
.
Let me tell you, it's wonderful to have our own plow.  Keith usually has to plow our long drive and pathways with a tractor and bucket. Since there's no cab on the tractor, he's nearly frozen by the time he finishes. 😱 Not to mention, there are no lights.  He's been using a battery operated headlamp. .
But, we're not complaining, honest.  Why?  The original homesteaders here would have had to plow by horse 🐴 and lantern or by 🤚. And they didn't have the extreme-weather clothing and boots 👢 that we have today.  Alas, their ways were more sustainable than ours, but only if they managed to survive..

Thursday Thanks: Kindred Spirits & Squash. We're thankful for the friends that gifted us this Kindred squash.  For many years, we've grown green, buttercup squash.  But, this was our first time eating Kindred.  It's an orange shelled, buttercup squash with a green star on the end.  The flesh is also orange. .
When cooked, the aroma is irresistible.  It has a creamy texture with a mild, sweet flavor.  Add butter and you have dinner.  Add butter toasted, candied walnut pieces and you have dessert.  Add with cream cheese and layer with lasagna noodles, then spinach with ricotta, onion, and bacon bits and you have a gourmet meal. .
We highly recommend growing and sharing lots of buttercup squash.  They're perfect for cold climates and packed with vital nutrients.  Not only do kids love them, so do all of our critters.  But, beware.  They don't share them.  Instead, they fight over them.  And Lord help any animal that tries to take one away from our cow, Eliza.🐮.

Wednesday’s Word- Nacreous: Having iridescent colors.

Oh, joy!  My rug is now clean and vibrant.  It was another one of my thrift-store finds.  While I knew it had seen brighter days, I had no idea it had so many colors.  They were buried beneath decades of dirt.  So, Keith and I decided to risk power washing the rug.  It was rejuvenated beyond my imagination.

Tuesday Tail Tale: Ow! Stop!  You're killing me!  Just kidding.  I'm Maya and I fooled you, didn't I?! Honest, my eyes are wincing from the camera flash; not pain.  And I'm not crying wolf when I say I hurt my tail the other day.  Don't know what happened, but when I got back inside, the tip was bleeding.  And every time I wagged my happy tail, I painted the cabinets and walls red.  Anyway, the bosses tried several different bandages and I kept taking them off.  Finally, they covered the bandage with (gasp!) duct tape.  Can you believe it?! It's so...so... tacky! .

#winter makes everything so #beautiful ! Though I cannot wait to get my hands in the dirt of the #garden, start on my outdoor cob kitchen, or get harvesting more wild edibles.... I still love these moments where snow covers all the fields and pushes down the conifers needles! In times like these most people in #northernmichigan get depressed and frown upon winter! However winter is only here for a #season so let's try to be thankful we get too experience it's Beauty and Magical Feeling!

Now that the holidays are over I can finally share one of my favorite projects... Homemade vanilla extract! 
Simply add 4 split vanilla beans to 1 cup plain vodka and let sit. I started my batch in September, and gifted them in December. The great thing about extract is that it just gets better and better. You could even start a batch now to give as gifts for the 2018 holidays. Plus, if you include a little vanilla bean in each bottle you give away, the flavor will continue to build in your loved one’s spice cabinet 👌🏼 shoutout to @canning_crafts for the perfect labels that made these little bottles oh so giftable!

I'm starting a new celery plant from the left over stump of a store bought head of celery! I grew one, I think, two years ago, and it got huge! Anyways it's easy to do! You just need the butt end of a head of celery, a glass of water, and two toothpicks. Peal off the outer larger leaves then slip the two toothpicks through the outer edge of either side of the stump. Place the stump in a glass making sure the toothpicks are suspending the stump over the glass and just barely allowing the bottom to sit in the water. I'd say keep the water level about a centimeter up the bottom of the stump, no more and no less, so keep it filled. Once roots start to develop and leaves start emerging you can pot the stump up and keep it well watered. Then you will have a new celery plant from something most folks would have considered trash! #regrowfood #regrow #regrowcelery #celery #growingbacktoeden #backtoeden#homesteading #homesteader#farmer#organic#sustainable #sustainableliving#selfsufficient #organicfarming #gardening #organicgardening #farmer#gyo #permiculture #permie

16 oz mushrooms dehydrated into two litre jars. I love having these on standby to add to soups, stews, omelettes, you name it - Anything that I'd otherwise use fresh mushrooms in. Mushrooms have always been one of those things in the back of the fridge that spoils before we use it up, so this works super well for us. .

Buffy told me she is over this winter crap. I told her to suck it up, no one is enjoying it. I also let her know we are supposed to get above freezing again this weekend! She scoffed at me. I don’t like being scoffed at by my chickens, or anyone else for that matter, so I told her to close her pie hole and just sit there cause it was too going to warm up. I really wanted to stick my tongue out at her, but then that would just have be juvenile. Because arguing with a chicken, when you are right, is not juvenile at all. Tell me it isn’t going to get warmer. I don’t see a smart phone with a weather app on it in your pocket, Buffy. Oh wait, that’s right, you don’t have pockets.

It's been blessedly raining the past few days, but the dirt bags we laid to dam up the rills and gullies on our farm have been majorly put to the test. The largest gully burst through the bags with the last big rainstorm. After each rain we understand a little better how to slow down the water and mud. We'll get there eventually.... Rome wasn't built in a day, amiright?? 💪😅💦

New blog post up on catching chickens when they don't want to be caught! A real family effort yesterday and we got them all in the end, including my son's favourite hen (who got carried around by a thrilled little boy for a personalised tour of her new digs). We love our hens but they are seriously stubborn...

We haven’t been able to enjoy any of our Chinese Napa Cabbage yet 😭 I love how big and beautiful the leaves are but many of the plants are bolting, so I’ve been giving the majority of it to the chickens and ducks. They ate it so fast and were fighting over it so I’m sure its super tasty #jealous I hope we get to try it before the rest of it bolts. This winter has been so warm the inside of the green house is hitting like 80+ degrees. 😱☀️
