Can you spot our garden visitor? We tried desperately to get some predatory insects to stay put in the garden early on with no success. I’m happy to see this little guy climbing around and hopefully eating all the hornworms! Do you release predatory insects into your garden to get rid of pests?

When you’ve just moved in to your property full time but haven’t had a chance to buy a wheelbarrow for firewood you have to resort to some #hillbillyengineering.
It worked remarkably well in case you were wondering!

Morning Instafriends ...
Cherry tomatoes are beginning to produce along with cucumbers in all this heat & humidity we've been experiencing. Meteorologist are forecasting a couple days of rain anytime after today? We're in need of rain like so many of you!
Happy gardening ...

Just been watching a family of woodpeckers on the telegraph pole at the back door. We think it's a parent and two young ones ❤️

An unscented lip balm made from natural ingredients during the "Natural Skincare" workshop at Lyttleton Stores. We also made a comfrey cream and toothpaste with propolis. Everyone has got a sample of each freshly prepared product to take home.

Many other skincare products and components were discussed and tested during the day, for example rose petal extract, propolis tincture, rose vinegar, cold-macerated calendula flowers and comfrey-infused oil.
It was such an enjoyable time at the @lyttletonstores workshop space, with the warming fire and a hot lunch served at the end, I didn't feel like going home 😊 .

Today is our 11th Anniversary. We actually have been together 16 years total and at the age of 33...that’s about half our lives! We have had a busy month and it’s not going to end soon, we decided to process the first round of our chickens while we had a free night. This was our first time doing multiple chickens. So...we basically celebrated our Anniversary by processing 9 chickens and 1 duck. #homesteaders #homesteading #processingchickens #farmcouple #weraisedourdinners #11yearsmarried #16yearstogether #highschoolsweethearts #thecouplethatprocessestogetherstaystogether

Home made rolls, still warm from the oven. Perfect to go with soup on this glorious but chilly winter afternoon!

Exciting things are happening in the jungle inside our polytunnel. Beautiful corn silk on the maturing sweetcorn ears. Those corn stalks have reached the top of the tunnel (about 8 feet). The reason for all this excitement is that our attempts to grow sweetcorn outside only met with limited success, so this looks like a massive improvement.

Something tells me that as stressful as this part of our life is, as the years go by we'll realize that these were some of the best years of our lives. We have many things to look forward to together, but I think there will always be a special place in our hearts for the days where we woke up and all that mattered was progressing on the house build. We've built this house and property from the ground up from a mutual dream we painted out one day in a stuffy apartment in a big city and while it's been nothing but hard, challenging, tedious work day in and day out, we're also doing what we set out to do. We always say this, but here's to rolling up your sleeves to get things done even when you feel you don't want to or things seem tough. If something was easy then everyone would do it! An elephant is eaten one bite at a time. A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. #motivation #hardworkpaysoffs #coupleswhoworktogether #homesteading #homesteadlife #homestead #housebuild #housebuilder #housebuilding #homebuild #homebuilder #homebuilding #timberframe #timberframing

The thing I love most about this chicken wormer is the sulphur because it turns the water pretty colors. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I also love it because it’s a natural wormer that kills the parasites in my birds but...also makes galaxy water...which makes watering the birds a little more fun in the 110 degree heat 🤷🏼‍♀️

How many people told me I was wrong, "just let her lick her dead calf and she'll get over it" "she won't milk up enough for another calf" "she probably won't take another calf" "why bother? She'll get pregnant again soon anyway" it was against what everyone else said and even against the text books but I knew what I had to do and I proved them all wrong. Olive didn't get over it, she did come into milk, she was over joyed when I presented her with her new calf and within 24 hours was out in the paddock with her new baby by her side. Well Olive im glad I listened to my instincts and did what I knew was right, because it worked and now your broken heart is healing and we have developed a strong bond because you counted on me and I delivered. when I checked you today you walked up to me as if to say thank you and that made it all worth it. #cows #cowsofinstagram #jerseycow #calves #calf #farmanimals #onthefarm #farmlife #farming #farmer #farmher #nzfarming #nzfarmlife #homesteading #housecow #selfsufficientliving #selfsufficient #selfsufficiency #livingofftheland #maggielil

SNOW PEAS

Flowers on these snow peas is always great news. It means the pods will be starting to form and soon there will be a harvest. 😊

Got to drive this nice 6170r with ivt transmission tractor yesterday to load up the baler at the John Deere dealership, it was my first time ever driving a ivt they seem like pretty slick transmissions I’ll have to drive them more to get a opinion. The only down side of this tractor is that it has a terrible turning radius have to use break to turn it probably because it’s all narrowed up to run a planter. -Nierlingfarms

PAK CHOI
.
My crop of Pak Choi has failed this year.

Sure it has leaves and they look like they are growing but there is a flower ... not good news.

I have grown this Asian vegetable over the years and the plants can get quite large and leafy. .

When they are small like this and the flower appears (which in time leads to a seed pod if not pinched out) it tells me I was too late in getting these seeds planted out. .

Meanwhile I can still harvest the leaves until they start to turn bitter tasting when cooked.

MACDAMIA NUTS
.
My macadamia nut tree has been growing since I no longer know when.
.
My dad gave me a treeling sprouted from a seed from his own bountiful macadamia nut tree many years ago. .
.
Finally this year there were flowers and a few nuts. Maybe next year I will get a few more. .

When the pod splits the nut is removed and dried either via the sun or warm oven. Then the nut is cracked. Yum 😊

I really don't know what we would do without the #excavator on the #Homestead it has been such a blessing. This is huge undertaking but this little #kubota is up to the task. Look for future videos of the excavator in action on our YouTube channel! @kubotausa

I was so fortunate to be able to be a little part of beekeeping! It was so so much fun, I cannot wait to have our own bees and chickens! Thanks so so much for the wonderful opportunity! And, Skylar loved being part of it all, too!

So many black raspberries today. What should I make? More chocolate sauce? Maybe ferment for some black raspberry wine? I wonder what a chutney would turn out like... I'm off to the kitchen. :) .

A little ambitious today. This is part of what happened to five pounds of golden beets. I made a gallon of Kvass, a fermented beet, ginger, turmeric, citrus elixir. I also squeezed out a quart and a half of curry golden beet slaw. We’ll revisit these delights in a couple weeks.

It's so tough being vegan. I have to wake up sooooo early to milk the sesame seeds.
But seriously, I just made this Sesame Seed Nut Mylk and it took like 3 minutes. Perfect for using in recipes, smoothies and all sorts of other things!
Rae loved it, and yes, it does taste like sesame seeds but I sweetened it with a date, some vanilla essence and a pinch of cinnamon.

The sudden change in temperature ☀️ caused the cucumbers 🥒 to ripen too fast. Too bitter to eat raw or to ferment. I found a sweet & sour recipe designed for the yellow and orange over-ripe cukes. A lot more sugar than I would like, but I didn’t waste 20 cucumbers. More will be revealed as they pickle.

I love that I can call my cows in by whistling so my sick ass can sit on the water trough and not do much 😂 Also, my sweet Violet is starting to develop an udder! She should be around 6 months preggo and I’m so excited to see her first calf! Daisy and Rosie will also be calving for the second time this fall! Swipe to see all the babies, including little Elsa bringing up the rear 🖤 Sharing for #❤️myfarm hosted by @the_red_barn_farm @camoandfeathers @the_teenage_homesteader ❤️

#CHICKENHUNTER I can’t reveal the identity of my undercover operative(it’s classified) but I can reveal her code name. Chickenhunter has been operating covertly in the natural habitat of her target. Posing as a welder, the chickens were caught unawares as they took turns operating the “Swingamathing 3000” . Unlicensed use of the Swingamathing has resulted in countless injuries to innocent chickens, necessitating strict government controls over its use. The penalty for unlicensed use is one bumnut per offense. One chicken was quoted as saying, “ It’s the cheapest thrill I’ve ever had”. Investigations continue..... .
