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
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!
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 😂

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
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

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!
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!
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?
Maaf ayam di foto sudah di booking semua. Silakan PO untuk pemotongan selanjutnya :). #ayamkampung #ayamhalal #ayamthoyib #ayamhalalantoyyiban #ayamhalaldenpasar #ayamhalalbali #urbanhomestead #urbanhomesteading #permaculture #permakultur #urbanfarming
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! 😉🙏🏻

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
