While I’m pruning the orchard for 6 hours straight...come on doggies.

Come hell or high water I’ll get this place terraced. We’ll have flat ground. And we’ll grow the best crops on top this mountain! #mountainhomestead #wakerobinhomestead #homestead #homesteading #homesteader #smokymountains
My kids are in the "give mom a heart attack" phase. Go me?!?
.
When it's warm enough outside to go play I swear they climb and hang off of everything they can reach. Including the gates while hubby goes in and out chopping ice and checking cows.
.
When it's too cold and they're inside they're running as fast as they can through the loop in our house and using furniture like a jungle gym. I know it's just the time of year, but heaven help me we're gonna break something.
.
Every year we buy them physical activity toys to help them stay active indoors, and every year I wonder why we dont just find a place to buy big a$$ boxes instead.
.
Help a momma out, what's one indoor activity you liked as a kid or your kids like to get some energy out??

Planning my next move. Or should I say “planting” my next move haha. I’ve set big goals for my garden this year and goals to preserve what we harvest.

My kids are always funny about it, but it truly is Apple Season in our house at the moment. We pick about 300kgs of apples off the trees each year, plenty get eaten straight away and made into all sorts of other things that last us through the whole year.

Duckie feels better and is walking on her own, but I feel terrible for her, all of her friends didn’t make it like she did and now I need to get her more friends. #petduck #lonelyduck #homestead #homesteading
Ready. Set. GROW! Attached the uppermost light to my plant shelf bringing the total to about 18 square feet of growing space!

All winter I keep myself busy propagating house plants but now it's time to stick them in a sunny window and make space for 2019 #seedlings!

#Seed orders for #herbs, #veggies and #perennials should be arriving any day now!

The light fixtures are just standard 4ft shop lights, two fixtures have fluorescent tubes and two lights have LED tubes, both seem to work equally well.
Each fixture, whether #fluorescent or #LED, have two 1600K bulbs and two 'grow' bulbs that provide light closer to 2300K; providing balanced light that grows balanced plants.
Yep, snow on the ground (still 😭😩), but the sun is out, it’s almost 50 degrees, I’m wearing a tank top outside and I’m PLANTING! Happy day! I got about 1/2 of my herbs that need to be started early in today. More to come 😍🌱 #homestead #homesteading #amongtheoakshomestead #herbs #herbalism #herbalist #growingherbs #selfsufficiency #herbalmedicine #herbalmedicinemaking #botanicalfarmacy

Checking on the homemade apple cider vinegar today. It definitely looks like something is growing in the jar. I hope its a mother! It doesn’t look like mold so I am hopeful.

Sometimes I have this crazy need to make something with #homegrown and #wildfood.
Although it is the middle of winter here, I had #carrots left over from the summer garden and I was eager to do something with them.
I really wanted to try fermenting, so I contacted @masontops and they sent me their fermenting kit!
What a blessing, this kit was exactly what I needed.
Although #fermenting is not at all hard, I’ve never had luck with the diy methods - this kit made everything so easy.
But what about wild food do you ask?
Well I used #foraged #ramp leaves and parsley for seasoning -wow did it smell amazing!
I have approximately 4 more days until these fermented carrots are ready for me to indulge in them and I seriously cannot wait.
Ramp leaves are one of my favorite things to use in my meals, they are amazing in eggs, soup and even on meat!
What wild/grown food are you whipping up today? 🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿

🎉 Dream Boards: Yay or Nay? 🎊⠀

Personally, I’ve spent most of my life thinking these were the most ridiculous things ever. BUT! I’ve also spent most of my life not really having any dreams or goals. 🤦⠀

I’ve always been in “barely getting by” or “survival” mode. It was only just recently that I finally let myself discover and accept that there could be more for me. That I really could have it all if I just put in the effort to try. 💪⠀

Now I find my dream board just as helpful as taping my thesis statements to my laptop to keep me focus on my goals.😜⠀

What are some things on my dream board? 🤔⠀

1. To buy my mother a house. This is something that I’ve been thinking about for years. She’s spend all of my life struggling at every turn to provide a home for her kids and herself. She’s worked crazy hours at any job she could find to get us by. I want her to be able to relax and enjoy her kids and possible future grandkids in a home of her own. 🏡⠀

2. To buy my husband some land. He loves to be outside and to do things with his hands. His dreams are all about landscaping and creating our own perfect self sustainable homestead. While I may never be able to fully commit to the off grid lifestyle. I want to give him the lifestyle he wishes for. 🌱⠀

3. Set up a college fund. Yes there are tons of these out there, but they all have strings and applications, hoops, and restrictions. I don’t want getting an education to be even harder than it already is. My cousins are the ones that come to mind when I think of who this will be for. I seriously have like 50 of them and there are still always more coming!!! But I would be very open to sharing as much as I could with anyone who needed help. 👨‍🎓⠀

Did you know that cardinals may stay in the same territory year-round?! Your cardinals will visit their bird feeder for years!! This lovely lady had an especially happy song for her Tipsy Feeder today 🥂😄
Myyy handy husband....He made me this kindlin' splitter thing out of scrap steel he had laying around!

My attempts with the axe did eventually get the job done but I'll admit, it was painful to watch (and do), borderline sketchy (ok, super sketchy), and now he maybe has to fix the dings I maybe left in his blade 🤷‍♀️ Uhhh...sorry, Babe 😏

This little do-dad-thinga-bobber makes splittin' kindlin' SO much easier now. Thank you for always noticing little ways to make my life more efficient 🤗

February is an ideal time to scope out living hardwood trees (between 4”-6” in diameter) to harvest for shiitake/mushroom log inoculation.
🍄
You'll want to cut trees that are dormant and don't have any buds. As soon as buds appear, even tiny ones, both water and sugar are mobilized, leading to less ideal conditions for your mushroom logs.
🍄
Logs should be cut to 3′ to 4′ in length. After cutting, let the logs sit in a cool, dark, damp place for 2 to 4 weeks before you inoculate. You can cover them with a tarp and/or spray them periodically with a hose if such conditions aren’t otherwise available.
🍄
Do you grow your own mushrooms? If so, what kind you got growin'?

Homemade taco seasoning is hands down better than anything you can buy. Not only do you know what is in it this way, you can also tweak it to your family’s liking. We do not use a lot of salt in this house so sometimes store bought “convenience” items give us salt overload. We also like a little more bite on the heat front so what’s not on this recipe when you swipe left is that I sometimes add a dash of homemade dried/ground jalapeño into the mix. As always I also try to add in some shredded zucchini to our ground hamburger. Not only does it sneak in a veggie, but we are at that stage where 1 lb of taco meat isn’t totally enough, but 2 lbs def means left overs. So by adding half a shredded zuk we are able to be AOK. #homemade #recipe #tacoseveryday #tacolove #makeityourself #tacoseasoning #homemadetacoseasoning #tossinshreddedzucchinitoo #hidingveggiesinfood #feedme #futurefriedtacos #homesteading #cookingfromscratch #tummylove **Also what is shown here is 6X the recipe. I like to make a large batch at once 🌮
#Finally a #warm #winter day. The frigid weather has kept the kids #coopedup for the past several months for anything short of getting in and out of a vehicle in the city. The #sun is stronger, the day's length is noticable as is the palpable joy of my kids, able to cherish a warmer season of white and play in the dunes of snow the prairie blows in.

#Spring is just around the corner.

I realized recently that I haven't done an "introduction" post in a long time, so I figured it's about time to do another one! My name is Christine & this is a pic of me & my husband Ken. We were married in 2016 & each brought 3 kids along with us, so we are a Brady Bunch for sure. I am a candlemaker by trade & my husband is a steel mill worker. We are both so thankful to God for giving us a second chance on life & happiness...our motto is "life is too short to be too serious". So we laugh, deeply & often. 😅We bought 14 acres of land, also in 2016, with the intention of #buildingahouse & pursuing our dream of #homesteading. Our land was a completely blank canvas, so we had to start from scratch with carving out a driveway & bringing in electricity, having a well dug & putting in a septic system. We've been chipping away at building our house in between all of the rain showers (& torrential downpours) of the past year, & it's slooooowly taking shape. But the process has been long & tedious because we are doing ALL of the work ourselves! We are nailing every board, installing every pipe, laying every brick & cinder block, all by ourselves. It has been a wild & interesting ride & last summer I started a #blog to document our journey (link in bio). One of the hardest parts of this road is the waiting. We are enjoying the process for sure, but my dreams of #gardens & #orchards & #chickens & #goats & #cooking & #preserving amazing food from all those homegrown sources has me feeling like a kid on Christmas Eve.😆 I can hardly stand to wait another day to get started!! But meanwhile I have gotten so much enjoyment & encouragement from the amazing #homesteadingcommunity here on IG. Some of you are in the waiting phase like we are, & it's been awesome to know we are not alone. Some of you are living the #homesteadlife every day, & I have been living vicariously through you, while taking copious notes on what to do when it's finally our turn. 😊 So this is us...we are aspiring #homesteaders with lots of kids, who love to laugh & are praying for at least one week of no rain to come soon...because right now we have a house that desperately needs a roof!🏡
Filled with homemade #papayajam and #veganbutter (@earthbalance ). Delish!!!
🔵 At end of freshman of college I went on my first geology and biology 👨🏻‍🔬 field trip to the western United States. I photographed the pair of flowers I believe to be Blue Pasque (Pulsatilla vulgaris) on Pikes Peak in Colorado. Still one of my favorite shots from that trip. As always, don’t forget to #BoldlyGrow! 🖖🏻

My garden helper pulling the little cute carrot in the previous post. It was 1 of 4 growing in a pot that’s only about 9” deep, so one can definitely grow carrots in a container. Just remember that things tend to dry out faster in a container than in the ground during summertime. During winter the container can freeze if there’s freezing temps. For that I just shield it in my children’s playhouse, making sure the pot has ground contact. Don’t worry about frost b/c it actually helps give carrots a sweeter taste.
What new things are you planning to grow this year? 🌱
We are super excited to finally fix up this old barn. Our grant application has been accepted and thanks to #carrotcache we are finally able to give this old barn new life with a new steel roof and facelift! Can wait to finally make use of this space that has had a leaky roof since we bought the property. #organicfarming #homesteading #barn #barnrestoration
Myths busted...
.
.
1) Fertilizer is not the most important contributor to how green a lawn is. Plant genetics is.
2) Moles, ants and worms are not pests in the lawn but are actually beneficial for your lawn.
3) Artificial turf is not more environmentally friendly than real grass. In fact, it is very harmful for the environment.

Someone had to show off...
This girl doesn't get nearly the attention she deserves in this online space. Turns out it's tough to compete with baby cows 😅 Sweet Ginny, our Mini Nubian goat 🌻 She is funny and a great milker and an all around good little goat 😊 She gave us our first raw milk from our own homestead and because of that she'll forever have a special place in my heart. Even now she's still giving us milk and packing sass every single day 😁
I ran out of paprika last week so I ground some of my dried garden paprika. The #peppers I grew to make into #paprika were Alma Paprika Pepper and a few Feher Ozon Paprika Pepper. The second picture shows a jar of the #dehydrated pepper before grinding. This jar has enough peppers to fill the jar next to it about 1/2 full of ground paprika.

One of the best things about all of this: I haven't used any plastic from starting the seeds and fertilizing with our own #compost all the way to turning them into a kitchen #spice in a #reused spice jar.

Yum!

THE CREATURE COMFORTS OF HOME living off grid in the Alaskan wilderness. — I recently made the final payment on my land 👍👍which has given me cause to look back and reflect upon my six years at the cabin as I begin my seventh. Over the years the cabin sure has gotten a lot more comfortable and homey. It was a turnkey operation when I bought it, meaning everything inside it came along with it and the previous owners had left behind hundreds of old books, cast-iron pans, boots, bolts, pumps along with tons of other stuff; most of which I’ve gotten rid of over the years. They were a younger couple with a new baby who had moved straight to the Alaskan wilderness with no experience whatsoever from Virginia. I think the isolation got to them and they wanted to sell. The husband was a bit of a dreamer who had unfinished projects all over the cabin and property. There was stuff everywhere! They were true pack rats, whereas I go through both my cabin and my RV regularly, removing items that aren’t necessary. Over the years though I cleared everything out and I’ve gotten it set up just right for me. Everything in the cabin now is there for a reason and whatever gets used gets put back right where it goes. Everything in shipshape! It’s important to be organized because in the middle of winter when you get 20 hours of darkness it’s nice to know where things are. The basket hanging over the stove is used to thaw food or to warm socks or anything else that needs it. It’s also important to utilize wall space so my tripod and my guitar are stored there, and in the kitchen the walls are full of pots and pans. The homemade quilt was made by good friend Jenni and the tie-dye blanket was given to me by my friend Royal. The bag next to the cat on the windowsill is actually used as a chimney fire suppressant. Woodstoves and chimneys are notoriously dangerous and much be watched all the time. If a fire ever does break out you simply open the door to the woodstove, toss in that bag, and it will extinguish the flames within seconds. The second picture is a photo of the signature wall, all visitors sign the cabin’s walls. — in TOLSONA, ALASKA, 🇺🇸

Throwback to 4 months ago when we were tiny and I (Melba) was allowed outside for the first time in a week because I had a suspected broken nose from running away and leaping off the hill on Mum and Dad’s property without knowing I was jumping out of the property boundary and onto the road below (falling about 5m / 16ft) 💔😭 It’s a miracle I wasn’t hit by a car but I badly injured my nose, left side of my jawl and left leg. The shock was the worst part and Mum thought I wasn’t going to make it so we stayed inside by the fire where I got syringes of molasses, whey, supplements and egg to try and make me feel better.
It worked because now I’m a super brave tiger pig who can take on anything and mum will make me all better 💪🏼🐽❤️🐽❤️ #smile #happy #throwbackthursday #piglife #piglove #pig #pigs #pigsofinstagram #pigstagram #lovepigs #pigsofig #followme #love #peachmelbapiggies #happy #friendsnotfood #homesteading #vegan #instagood #pigsofnewzealand #instapigs #instapig #instapigsss #pigsareawesome #igdaily #repost #instagram #petpigs #beautiful #crueltyfree
Let’s talk about how EASY it is to make 🥣BONE BROTH🥣 It is such a major superfood and is my secret weapon to help my son recover from his surgery the next week. To see all the amazing benefits of bone broth check out my stories. In a nutshell it heals the gut, boosts the immune system, and reduces inflammation. I make mine in about 2.5 hours with my instant pot. I simply put in the bones*, add a splash of apple cider vinegar (this helps draw the nutrients out of the bones), about a tablespoon of sea salt, and the maximum amount of filtered water. Then I cook on high pressure for two hours. Then it’s simple to filter the bones out and store in mason jars in the fridge. You can also can them and then store at room temperature but I never have time for that. When we aren’t battling illness I use the broth to make rice or pasta in place of water or in our recipes. We make broth out of all the bones from our lamb and chicken off our property. Since the broth gets heated to such a high temperature you can just drop the bones in the pot after you eat meat off of them and the bacteria will be destroyed. When the broth is done you should be able to crush the bones with gentle pressure from your fingers. We feed the cooked bones back to our animals (dogs, cats, or chickens) as a treat! It’s that easy! *when making bone broth it is important to use organic or home raised chicken. You are pulling all the nutrients out of the bones and the chicken was conventionally raised it means you are getting all the bad stuff. Even if you don’t eat organic chicken make sure you only use organic to make bone broth. #bonebroth #bonebrothheals #bonebrothrecipes #eatrealfood #naturalhealing #momhack #healthykidsfood #tonsillectomy #healingfromsurgery #homesteadhacks #homesteading #zerowaste #greenmama #naturalmama
