Summer snack 😋

Tonight’s haul 😍

How does everyone package their farm raised rabbit? I vacuum seal mine, but I find it works better if I freeze them first. I find that the moisture interferes with getting a good seal sometimes. I do that with most of my meat; just a quick freeze seams to really help. Does anyone go with freezer paper? #gentlemanfarmer #homestead #homesteading #homesteadlife #hobbyfarm #permaculture #rabbit #rabbits #rabbitsofinstagram #champagnedargent #meat #meatrabbits

Brown rice and lentils with carrot, turnip, pattypan squash, chard, chili and garlic. 2nd pic is the actual cooking surface I am using... That's right folks, at the farm, I cook by old fashioned candlelight and propane while listening to the chorus of frogs and insects on the other side of the mosquito netting. #farmfresh #homecooking #Vegan #GoodThingsGrow #veggies #LocalGrowth #niagarafarmproject #NiagaraPeninsula #Niagara #niagarafarms #permaculture #agriculture #farming

This week at #RanchoReiso - Our backyard garden - August 19th, 2018 Taste the Rainbow- Of peppers that is. Our sweet pepper plants are generously producing heirlooms of different shapes, sizes and colors. Only a fraction of the peppers we pick make it out of the garden and into the kitchen. Sunflower Seeds - Our first flower heads have dried enough to rub the seeds off. We eat most raw, but some we will soak in salt water and then roast until dry. When life gives you sh!t, turn it into compost. We procured about a ton of organic dairy cow manure, to be more specific. We will use it over the next few weeks as an ingredient in our new compost pile. The ingredients in our pile will breakdown and then reassemble over fall and winter, as the earth draws inward. Then it will be spread around the garden and fruit trees in early spring. Speaking of compost, here is a gratuitous clip of cuteness as our hens and goat happily munch and scratch in the compost pile for treats. #garden #gardening #vegetablegarden #instagarden #growfood #growyourown #homegrown #urbangarden #permaculture #agriculture #horticulture #goat #goats #chickenofinstagram #backyardchichens #peppers #sunflower #sunflowerseeds #compost #biodynamic

Check it out. 👨‍🌾 . . . Three garden beds in different states. The bed on the far left has been covered with black silage tarp to create an environment conducive for digesting plant residue. The plant on the far right is about to be covered. And the bed in the middle just had a tarp removed—a nice, crisp, clean bed. The use of black tarps to digest old plant material and to force the germination of weed seeds (formerly called occultation) is becoming a common practice in market gardening. As they say, keep your soil covered. #garden #gardening #marketgarden #localfood #farmersmarket #soil #vegetables #permaculture #yankton #southdakota #sodak #hifromsd

Broadchurch's first salami! Okay it's not pretty but gosh it's tasty! Given we minced the pork by hand and stuffed the casings by hand and hung it in our entrance way I think it turned out great 😂 Chorizo should be ready in another three and a half weeks 🤞 #salami #meat #homekill #pork #pigs #cured #sausage #tasmania #perserve #ferment #organic #charcuterie #italy #italian #growyourownfood #raiseyourownmeat #selfsufficiency #sustainable #eco #permaculture #garden #farm #farmlife #farming #agriculture #grazing #grassfed #organicmeat #freerange

Our pigs grew these tomatoes!!! . And a bunch of pumpkins, amaranth and papayas! They’re better gardeners than we are!! Seriously!! . How??!! We feed our pigs leftover food, they fertilize the land and dig it up. After two months we move them to fresh land and as soon the land gets some rest, it booms into life; a food paradise. Its hard to believe, but we are harvesting pumpkins, amaranth, papayas, and tomatoes from this plot. Its the pig garden. . Animals feed the soil in the most incredible ways. Its nature and permaculture in action. Its pretty special. We’ll be teaching all about this in our #kulkulpdc next month.

Spent the day shooting for a "How to Save a Coconut Tree from Crown Rot" video (which clearly needs a catchier name 😂)

I virtually mugged my courier driver. The last seed buy for the year... Honest 😇 I technically have all the seeds I currently have room for. #gardening #urbangardening #foodforfree #eatwhatyougrow #permaculture #plants #flowersof2018 #urbanfarm #kingsseeds

One of my favorite #swales! Note the beginnings of a #swiveljoint in the bottom corner. Swales can seem messy at first, but in a few years this area will be #verdant with year-round water availability #permaculture #watersmart #earthworks #sustainable
