So...a lot goin’ on over here...in the “last frontier” ! It’s been two weeks since we broke ground on the basement of our little cabin-to-be. A LOT has materialized since (lots of pics to share). All the while...both of us have been fortunate to immerse ourselves in two new wonderful full time jobs. In this town, good jobs are hard to find! Mornings, evenings, and our days off...is when we continue to plug away at the two simultaneous projects we have going on at the property.
.

Our high tunnel project is moving slowly...but thanks to @alaskabuilder ...we are waaaay ahead on the cabin project. What took them not even a week to complete on the basement...would have taken us all summer (if THAT)...and frankly, their work is more solid than anything we could’ve ever done on our own. Laying a good solid foundation here is key, and we knew that was a project we wanted to put in the right hands. Moving forward...Steve and I will put our hands on the steps we know we can handle...and contract out the ones we don’t feel comfortable with.
.

Lots more to come. Hoping to catch up with all you lovelies at some point soon. Cheers to long, full days ahead!↟

Ya girl got a diploma 😝 B.S. in Public Health Science with a 3.5 GPA while also working two jobs. I had to support myself through college and it got really hard when my parents left the country..I didnt think i could do it. It took a lot of hard work, sweat, tears and laughs to get here and I would only change a few things lol. Terps only move forward and never take a step back, it doesnt matter how long it takes to cross the finish line...just stick your neck out and get there at your own pace. My ultimate career goal is to open a my own health clinic in underserved countries, cant wait to see how I’ll get there. #fearless #selfsufficient #ididit #goterps 🐢🎓❤️

Helluva day to end it gardening, or filling your final raised bed listening to good music in Gods country. #nofilter #flyoverstates #gardening #dutchcolonial #selfsufficient #folkmusic #godscountry

Today is one of those days...I'm staring at this pizza- helpless...unable to cook it because our oven decided not to work right when I was making dinner. All I want is to have my dinner so I can then bathe my child, put her to bed and doing my readings for school and read for my paper because god only knows when I will find time when my husband is away next week. Is that too much to ask? Apparently the oven gods think so. I call the hubby...who was supposed yo be home 30 mins ago, but of course he hasn't even left work yet. This is one of those days you want to scream, break the already broken oven, cry...but you can't...because your child is watching you and you don't want to scare them. This is motherhood...you don't just sacrifice your body, time, sleep, and social life....you sacrifice your emotions, your sanity. As my daughter cries for her mommy and I go to her rescue and comfort her, I wonder who will come rescue all us mommies out there.

Our first foray into homegrown meat has succesfully concluded! We raised 24 Big Sur chickens, and yesterday we processed them. We fed all organic feed, and their diet was supplimented with the grass, weeds, and bugs they foraged.

This is only part of my harvest so far. I’ve already pickled 6 quart size jars of cucumbers and I canned one quart of tomato. I think it’s time to make salsa. #garden #gardening #veggiegarden #vegetablegarden #selfsufficient #foliage #tomatoes #tomatoisafruit #cucumber #pickles #red #yum #homegrown #homegarden #beefmastertomatoes #botanicalinterestsseeds

Every Sunday night, in our house, is “Kids Cook Sunday”
We rotate thru the three of them each week and they have to plan the meal (at least 2 courses) write me a shopping list, (they are encouraged to use what we have first, and get $20 to spend on extras), stick to a budget, then prepare and serve! So many lessons!
.
This week Jasmine wanted a “selection dinner” - her words!! ....So she made bruschetta, buffalo wings and prawn and avocado with garlic dressing (swipe to see), followed by pear and mixed berry pie! She spent an extra $18 on top of what we already had in the fridge, freezer, pantry or garden!

When did everyone get so scared of hard work? Or just work in general, manual labor, getting your hands dirty. I love hard work. I am immensely grateful that my body is healthy and strong enough to DO work. That's probably why I am not a fan of pregnancy but I just LIVE for labor! Laboring is especially hard work and I love every second of it. We are diy addicts over here. Because we truly enjoy working for what we have. It fulfills its. Gives us pride, a sense of accomplishment, gratitude. It feels like society is saying "do less, consume more." But I don't want to do less, I want to do MORE and purchase as little as possible. Yea, it's lonely sometimes feeling like I'm crazy for spending hours creating, making, building something I could buy for $20. But I know there are others out there, right?!Let me know if you would rather spend your days digging ditches than sitting in an air conditioned office! Who's with me?!

Garden is slowly starting to produce. Got a couple of tiny jalapenos and tabascos growing and a ton of not yet ripe blueberries. Now we just need the tomatoes and our little bell and poblanos to start making. #gardening #garden #veggie #makeyourown #growyourown #gardens #gardensofinstagram #peppers #jalapeno #tabasco #blueberry #bush #plant #homestead #homegarden #selfsufficient

Make something out if nothing!!. We have an old flower bed in our parking lot that hasn't been planted or ysed in years.. was basically a weed bed.. well I enjoy Gardening so after I got the ok from the Man, I went to work!. Just finished planting today!. The following was planted: Tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, onion, yellow onion, snap beans, cayenne peppers, potatoes and marigolds in between to help fight against pest. Next I'm gonna build a chicken wire fence around it. Hope everyone had a great weekend! #gardening #selfbettering #outdoorlife #countrylife #selfsufficient

Talked with a guy earlier today who has spent most of the last year living out of his truck, including four months alone apparently in the desert Southwest. Six or 7 months of it he’s been collecting $750 *every week* from unemployment. But he had never bothered to buy one of these. I didn’t mind letting him wait for the AAA tow truck guy for a jump start because he was. Such. An. Amazingly. Unexplainable.

Chicks have officially moved into their coop! They still are figuring out how to get outside but they'll be much happier with more space to stretch their wings! (And this is NOT the dog who got one of the chicks the other day)!

What an experience to be involved in our kids first tournament who are willing to give it their all with patience and dedication. A child's persistence and how willing they are to continue thru their struggle inspire me everyday. What an honor to be involved with the @kickfitfoundation with @the_arch_angel_perla , let's keep at it brother.

Trying a diy all purpose cleaner - infused vinager with basil - will report back how I like it (since I'm making it without essential oils this will need to infuse for 2 weeks in the fridge) #glitterinthegarden

The bees on the plot next to me must of realised it was National Bee Day and wanted their presence heard. Innocently watering my plants and the buzz got louder, looked up and there’s thousands of bees swarming above my head 😂 my neighbour saw me and shouted DO YOU WANT TO COME FOR A CUP OF TEA? (Read move away from the bee swarm before you get stung and die) they must of seen the fear in my face 😂 dropped my hose and ran to their plot 😂 anyway cup of coffee later, the bees were all back in their hives and my neighbours kindly gave me some baby wild garlic to take back to my plot, I’ve put it in these pots so it gets bigger and spreads 😍.

Even though winter is only a few days away, my tomatoes that popped up by themselves are flowering and producing fruit 🤔 these must be confused, just like my pumpkins. #selfseed #tomato #tomatoes #grow #growyourownfood #garden #gardening #gardeningaustralia #selfsufficient #selfsufficiency #homegrown #greenthumb #veggiegarden #veggiepatch #fruit #chemicalfree #greenthumb #winter

Never been so excited for a bowl of rocket before. First bowl of rocket grown in my own garden! So much more peppery than stuff in the shops, can't believe this flavour!

What a productive Sunday - I am sooo tired! 200 bulbs in the ground and nothing to show for it yet 😉 We kept losing time just watching our pond - it’s bursting with life. Frogs, tadpoles, newts, fish - it’s a joy. 💕Here’s one guy just sat watching me. Probably checking I was working hard enough 🤷🏼‍♀️ #pond #pondlife #frog #toad #mygardentoday #mygarden #instanature #instanaturelover #allotment #wildlife #allotmentlove #allotmentlife #froglife
