Out of all the dahlias we picked on the farm this morning, these three lonely stems of ‘Peaches N Cream’ take the cake. Mmmm. Cake.

It's hard to believe that some of the leaves here have already turned yellow. The smaller trees seem to be the first to go. This means that chickens will start molting, and egg production will start dropping again.
Poor Bo, our rooster, is going through a hard molt this year. But he hasn't had the easiest year anyway. Poor think looks rough!
For now, we'll savor the dark orange yolks and warm weather while we still can. Fall is right around the corner, and with it, the frigidness of winter!
Well my greenhouse 🏠 fruits & veggies are doing alot better & coming back after we fried them on our honeymoon 😬! Our spearmint plant is getting big 🙌 & we have gotten a bowl each of strawberries 🍓, peppers & baby cherry tomatoes 🍅 already! And our watermelon 🍉 is about ready to pick! 🌱🌿 we decided to grow our fruits & veggies indoors this winter 😏 to have all year long! Plus my greenhouse has lights at night im so happy! 😍🌌 #happylife#greenhouse#garden#grow#plantmom#plants#veggies 💜 #fruits#farmlife#homestead
Queen Amidala is a fighter 💪🏼
She’s had a pretty bad sinus infection. After 2 days of medicine, which @mrbird25 suggested, (THANK YOU) she’s already a lot better. It’s always hard when chickens get sick, but it’s also so rewarding when you doctor them and they pull through.
Could getting your hands dirty be good for your soul and immune system? Farmer Tara Coronado sees dirt on her hands a little differently than most. "Soil, especially soil with abundant organic matter, contains saprophytic bacteria, meaning that they live off of dead and decaying organic matter, such as leaves. Humans coevolved with these bacteria over millennia and they have been shown to affect the immune system in a way that suppresses inflammation. This means that these bacteria may be helpful in preventing or treating diseases with excess inflammation." - Christopher Lowry, associate professor at the University of Colorado Boulder.

A bounty of wild blackberries! Enjoy them before winter comes, or better still, start canning now and you can have a taste of summer all winter long. Do you make jam from your summer fruits?

Horse folks... how do you teach impulsion/forward motion? Let's say you had a 5 year old gelding named Spur who was the laziest dude in all the land. I'm obviously asking for a friend.

The dahlias are finally hitting their stride here on our farm, so of course we hit just above freezing last night 🤦🏼♀️ There’s a full moon coming this weekend and it looks like I’ll be busy tagging all the dahlias this week, marking their varieties before a frost takes them for yet another year! Fingers crossed that we glide thru this weekend unscathed and the dahlias live to see another few weeks though🤞🏻🤞🏻 Farming in Canada..most definitely worth the stress and risk but a risk nonetheless...
