BunBun is still hangin in there, spending nights in our pantry and daytimes in the nest box in the rabbit run. Daytime temperatures have been mild so far and he’s a toasty little hot pocket whenever I pick him up. Fingers crossed that he makes it because, in truth, I’m awfully attached. #raisingrabbits #urbanhomestead #smallanddeliciouslife
This scripture spoke to me today as we prepare for the first day of HVAC being installed in the second floor. # After so many years of working to restore this cottage, I STILL need a reminder that God has the timing down perfectly. # This morning’s early Son light is so golden. A reminder to me, that God is near me always. He knows my heart. He knows my desires. # But most importantly, He knows what I NEED. # And He provides. In His time. # Every time. # May God bless you with a timing of your needs that is His perfect timing my friends. # God bless. # #elizabethmaxson #godslight #godstiming #thankful #grateful #blessed #sunbeam #morninglight #goldenhour #naturallightphotography #farmhousedecor #farmhousestyle #cottagedecor #cottagestyle #cornerofmyhome #lightandshadow #urbanhomestead #simplejoys

Looking down the pathway in the morning light. Rain is coming next week, I am glad that we have the structure up to keep them dry.
Time to clear the gutters and get those baby greens planted! Time is running out on this season since first frost is usually around October 11th here in Minneapolis Zone 4B. I’ll get some greens before it’s all over for the 2018 Season. As always, I learned a lot during this season, and I’ll have to summarize those lessons in a future post. How is your fall garden doing?
Ci siamo quasi! La mia vicina di casa mi ha inviato questa foto per dirmi che le olive sono praticamente pronte per la raccolta. Aspettiamo ancora un paio di settimane e poi si incomincia, non vedo l'ora!🌱
Ancora sento in bocca il buon sapore dei fichi d'agosto, anche se quest'anno, in Campania, non è stata una buona annata, né di fichi né di altra frutta. Proprio quest'anno volevo farla sviluppata. Pazienza, in compenso, io e mamma, abbiamo fatto marmellata di fichi e fichi secchi per Natale. Li farò ripieni di noci e miele poi li immergo nel cioccolato caldo fondente! Sono una bontà!😋
La vendemmia è quasi ultimata anche se il maltempo non ha reso le cose facili. Qui siamo nella terra natia di mio padre dove ci sono questi meravigliosi grappoli d'una! L'orgoglio di mio nonno! Magari potessi abbandonare questa città per dedicarmi alla terra ma purtroppo è impossibile. Mi devo accontentare di andarci qualche volta durano l'anno e in agosto. Be! Meglio così che niente! Mai disperare!🍇
Pumpkin updateeeeee. I have successfully pollinated one pumpkin. This one is the musquee de province from our August box. It’s getting bigger by the day. I can’t wait to sling it and then eat it 😈. . . I missed three of the fairy tale females. One refuses to even open and just sits there and stares at me everyday. It has more that should open soon though so I’m excited for that 😊. . . So far growing these in 25 gallon grow bags has been quite a success. Even the ones with two pumpkin plants per bag are doing well. I wonder if I’ll have pumpkin for thanksgiving? Christmas maybe 🤔. What seeds should I start next? 🌱 🌱 🌱 🌱 #pumpkin #containergarden #seedmail #plantmom #gardener #growfoodnotlawns #backyardgarden #permaculture #urbangarden #garden #gardening #thehappygardeninglife #greenthumb #subscriptionbox #monthlysubscription #growfoodnotlawns #grow #idrinkandigrowthings #homestead #islandlife #blackgirlswithgardens #urbanhomestead #zone10 #floridagarden #plantbabies #mint2grow

Spa night for our silkies and Aracauna who are going to their new home tomorrow. These four lovelies are terribly picked on by our big chickens and I just don’t have the room on our property to keep them separately. I am sad because they are such sweet chickens but they are going to live with a lovely work colleague of mine where I know they will be perfectly looked after. So tonight they were wormed, lice dusted, flight feathers clipped, nails cut and bum feathers tidied. . . . . . #worms #wormfarm #compost #backyardpoultry #backyardchickens #fresheggs #exbatteryhens #urbangoats #backyardgoats #urbanfarm #urbanhomestead #microfarm #growyourownfood #growfoodnotlawns #organic #freerange #suburbanhomestead #nigeriandwarfgoat #nubiangoats #mininubian #vegepod
I told my daughter I had another bird surprise and she asked if it was a parakeet. So close!! It was actually a pair of keets.. #urbanhomestead #guineakeets #guineafowl #backyardpoultrymag #birdsofinstagram
My friends and staff indulged my chicken addiction for my birthday. 🎂🎉
So I invented a new dessert (or breakfast food!) tonight 🤷🏼‍♀️ I thought I had some crescent rolls in the fridge, so I went to make some cheese danishes (total lazy mom here 🙋🏼‍♀️ plus, my kitchen counters are virtually nonexistent so I don't have the space to make my own dough). • Anyway, it wasn't till after I had made the Danish filling that I realized I only had cinnamon rolls. Hmm. So I just hollowed out the cinnamon rolls, built up the outside 'walls', and plopped the Danish filling in. I also coated the outsides with a caramel glaze. • When they finished cooking, I just used the topping from the tube👩🏼‍🍳 Voila! • I already had one, I think I might need another before bedtime... • Also, if I can ever figure out technology and get my blog to finally start working, I might make this a post? I think I'll start a lazy mom's recipe collection 😂 • #thefarmersnerdywife #recipe #myrecipe #newrecipe #lazy #lazymom #easy #dessert #breakfast #cinnamonrolls #homestead #homesteader #homesteading #homesteadlife #urbanfarm #urbanfarmer #urbanfarming #urbanhomestead
What a week! What a weekend! We had a lot of fun with friends this weekend, but we also busted our tails on the basement project. The drywall, mudding, sanding are complete. We got some trim up, the door in place and a utility hatch in place today. @jdoms91 And Danny were priming the walls. We are tired. This has been a big project, and we are ready for it to be completed. The end is in sight. Overall, this was a serious work week: travel, reviews, reports, analysis and remodeling. Ooosh, fam. That’s a lot. I took a 2 hour nap this afternoon and am ready to collapse tonight. Tomorrow starts a new week with more interesting tails on the way. About this shot: I was out grilling tonight for a late dinner, and I saw the moon rising through the trees. It was casting an eerie light on the clouds, and I just had to take the picture. I think it is a good end to the first couple days of Fall 2018, and I will be ready to rock and roll tomorrow. How about you? How was your weekend? Did you get a lot accomplished?
Here’s the final product! 💃 There’s no way this jar will make it 48 hours. Possible Vicious Cycle expansion? #vcurbanhomestead
• Finally made something with a zucchini from the garden! But right now I’m eating some of those leftover coconut macadamia nut brownies with whipped almond cream! ⤞ Zucchini ribbons with mushrooms and broccoli tossed in homemade vegan pesto with @badiaspices hulled hemp seeds. . . . #urbangardening #vegetarian #growyourgrub #LCHF #growyourownfood #vegantransition #OMAD #mostlyveganketo #gardentotable #freshfromthegarden #vegandiet #urbanhomestead #simpleliving #eatyourgreens #veggielife #fromthegarden #veggies #eatyourveggies #plantbased #proteinfromplants #kaleyeahitsvegan
Nature is lovely. The transformation from flower to food is beautiful. The earth constantly gives us what we need... so, its mind blowing that humans effortlessly destroy it. . . . . . . . #farmher #urbanfarmher #urbanpermaculture #growyourfood #homesteading #gardening #urbanhomestead #seedlings #containergarden #backyardfarm #growyourfood #urbanfarm #playindirt #permaculture #gardenlife #foodnotlawns #gardentotable #growyourgroceries #ediblegarden #urbangarden #beyondorganic
Bought a few plants today. Bought some celery, dino kale, dill, rubber plant, and some planters. Also going to start a project building some large planters from pallets. Stay tuned and follow @davidsurbanfarm
Sifted compost = black gold. Prepping beds for the long winter. Are you ready for the big freeze and an early jump on spring gardening?! #urbanhomestead #compost #feedthedirt #GrowLove #alaskangrown

Master of disguise (in training)
Good evening! I quickly took this image this morning while sitting in my chair. We were enjoying the morning breeze through our newly opened windows. # Wilma in her chair - chops on the window sill, rear end and tail dangling off the chair as she enjoyed her view. # My bearded beloved next to his window, feeling the breeze as he sipped his coffee. # And me, enjoying the curtains being tied back and the morning light spilling in. # All was quiet except for a few slurpy sips of hot coffee. # We had our HVAC guy visit us tonight to finalize plans for the upstairs. We are finally getting heating and cooling on the second floor this week. # It’s almost like I can’t believe it is finally here. # Open windows and HVAC. # And my small family with me to enjoy it together. I am grateful. # May God bless you with an open window this week - and may you feel a cool relief. # #elizabethmaxson #godisgood #godslight #morninglight #thankful #grateful #blessed #quietplace #farmhousestyle #rescuedog #wilmathebarbersdog #myview #cornerofmyhome #sunbeam #lightandshadow #windowtreatments #antiquetextiles #cottagelife #reallife #furbaby #oldwindows #homerenovation #urbanhomestead
Sophie checking out the new wood chips :) Getting the yard ready for winter, the wood chips keep the mud out of the house.
This week’s #putuporshutup2018 feature goes to @stephbeaudoin20. Thanks for playing along! September's #cantogether is 10 half pints of Apple Cranberry jam! It came out so much better than 2 years ago because I have canning instincts now! It's actually a jam and not apple cranberry sauce. Hooray! Recipe from @foodinjars , added a healthy shake of pumpkin pie spice to cut the sweetness and give it some warmth. Also adding it to @3pointsacres #putuporshutup2018 which is a super fun hashtag. Post something that you've canned with Tiffany's spectacular hashtag!
Changing of the seasons mean changing of the garden beds! Planting out starts of bok choy, pac choy, giant red mustards, golden streaked mustard, collards, red veined sorrel, a few types of kale, broccoli, cauliflower, romesco and Brussels! All with a fluffy little helper who better not dig them all up when I turn my back!! #willowglenhomestead #frontyardgarden #frontyardfarm #growfood #growfoodnotlawns #growyourown #dogsofinstagram #farmdogs #puppiesofinstagram #urbanhomesteading #urbanhomestead #urbanhomesteader #fallgarden
Mengawali Senin pagi dengan Bismillahi Allahuakbar. Empat ayam kampung dipotong pagi ini. Keempatnya punya warna kaki yang tidak seragam ada yang cenderung kuning, hitam, polos terang, dan bercak. Halal itu standar, Thoyib adalah gaya hidup. Standar tentunya minimal tidak bisa ditawar. Thoyib, baik , adalah gaya hidup. Sudah thoyibkah makanan yang kita makan, apa makanan dari makanan yang kita makan. Teraturkah tidurnya makanan yang kita makan? Pertanyaan bodoh yang aneh? Tahukah kalau ayam 'broiler' lampu kandangnya dinyalakan 24 jam bukan untuk supaya hangat, tapi supaya tetap makan dan tumbuh cepat? Susah tidur? hidup tidak tenang? Perhatikan makananmu. Maaf ayam di foto sudah di booking semua. Silakan PO untuk pemotongan selanjutnya :). #ayamkampung #ayamhalal #ayamthoyib #ayamhalalantoyyiban #ayamhalaldenpasar #ayamhalalbali #urbanhomestead #urbanhomesteading #permaculture #permakultur #urbanfarming
The award for first germination clearly goes to Golden Zucchini... and Dill is up first for the herbs! #yay #seedlings #fromthegreenhouse
Yesterday’s #shishitopeppers harvest from one plant that has been my most prolific pepper plant this year. They are tasty, mildly spicy, East Asian peppers that are delicious served charred. Seeds from @gardening_kristi ! I don’t know why but all the rest of the varieties of peppers I planted just aren’t producing that much. I’m hoping we have a couple more warm days to ripen everything up. Also pictured is another week’s #harvest of Ashley cucumbers. Cucumbers always do really well in my garden and I have picked a lot this year already off only three plants. Perhaps they like that it is partially shaded and gets a good amount of water. #chicago #chicagogarden #chicagogardens #urbangarden #urbanorganicgardener #organic #peppers #growyourown #growsomethinggreen #growyourgreens #sustainableliving #raisedbedgarden #containergardening #homestead #urbanhomesteading #urbanhomestead #learningasigrow #plantstagram #organicgardening #womanwhogrow #healthylifestyle #vegetables #raisedbedgardening #vegetablegarden

#spring has really sprung. We have two new litters of rabbits, all the plants are starting to wake up, the Wisteria is in bloom and it’s almost time for me to plant tomatoes! And I made a Hendricks gin and tonic cake!

Golden hour highlights a golden moment. As I took this pic, I heard a little quiet scurrying and playing. # I stepped to the side and see my BB sitting in his chair, which the sunbeam is splashing across its back. My bearded beloved is petting Wilma as he puts on his shoes and guards his socks from feisty fangs. # He had no idea I captured this moment - but I love how God’s light is shining on him in his chair. It feels very protective to me. # A beautiful day with an old friend, eating out, napping and now my two are at the dog park while I work on a project. Later tonight, HVAC guy will visit to go over final plans and should begin installing this week! # I wanted to spend the day in the garden, but the day got away from me. Evening is just too big-bitten for me to tolerate. Long sleeves, jeans, and chemical spray do absolutely zero for me. I get bitten right through my jeans and even have a prescription for my 100’s of bites (yes, no exaggeration) that I get all summer long. # So maybe, Tuesday will be garden day. I have gourds to harvest! # I sure hope your week is stunningly superior. Why have a good week, when it’s possible to have a superior week - just for the asking. God hears you! 😉🙏🏻 # #elizabethmaxson #goldenhour #eveninglight #sunbeam #godslight #thankful #grateful #blessed #urbanhomestead #goldenlight #lightandshadow #lifestylephotographer #naturallightphotography #farmhousedecor #farmhousestyle #cottagedecor #farmhouseliving #rusticdecor #barndoors #rusticfarmhouse #cornerofmyhome #nordicstyle #pinkchair #stonefireplace #woodfloors #homerenovation #interiordesign #simpledecor #ilovemyhusband #linens
Well, the last cucumber vine finally gave in which means this is officially the end of pickle season... but the poblanos are still going strong!!! #farmlife #urbanhomestead #pickleseason #thisoldbroad #oldbroadfarm #growyourown #portnorfolk
Yesterday, I made my first batch of Peach Jam. It’s so delicious and sweet. Tastes like a jar of summer.

Plant shopping as we drive the coast. Going to stop at a lot of nurseries and get some plants and trees. Can't wait to show you what we bought. Follow me @davidsurbanfarm
I really love watching the tiny #seeds I #sprout turn into big beautiful #mouthwatering monster #tomatoes These are my Maniluce tomatoes that are supposed to only get to be medium sized. Hope others that bought these plants starts from us at #NaturalElementsFarms had similar or even better results this year. #permaculture #urbanfarming #urbanhomestead #backyardgarden #womenwhofarm #washingtonstate #kitsapfarms #pnw #portorchard #eatwhatyougrow
