Non-farm animal addition...

Our rabbitry has been sitting silent. Even though it breaks my heart to see it vacant, I couldn't bring myself to fill it again just yet.

This guy with the crooked head was found in a parking garage by our neighbor. He needed a home and I guess I had a void to fill.

Funny how that happens sometimes. I have never been known to turn down an animal in need. Especially a handicapped one, so.....

Welcoming Cookie Dough to the ILM Urban Farm! What he doesn't provide in farm services he makes up in cuteness.

Well this was too funny I had to share... I spent several hours in the greenhouse readying transplants to be sold. I have ear phones in but notice the dogs start acting weird.

Just from this week's shearing I was able to spin 487 yards of gorgeous double ply fingerling yarn! I love the creamy white that is his natural color, so I will leave this batch un-dyed.

Everything is for sale in our farm stand at 206 Brookwood Ave! And we do ship as well. The perfect gift for yourself or your favorite knitter and crocheter!

Forest Garden With 500 Edible Plants Requires Only a Few Hours of Work Per Month

This man’s forest garden produces tons of food, while practically tending itself! Historically, farms and forests have been at odds. Conventional wisdom says we have to cut down the forest to make way for agriculture. But a growing movement called agro-forestry β€œcapitalizes” on the free servic...

Vinnie Van Gogo is WAY over do for a trim. He is such a loaf of bread, mellow guy. Just rests his head on my legs until the shearing is all over. Then he acts like a young pup and runs allover the yard after. Free at last!

A new haircut feels so GOOD!

This guy was hanging out underneath the soil of a bed I'm turning over. The puffiest guy I have ever seen!

So much chaos and unrest in the world lately, but I found a bit of peace in my kitchen today...

The fall batch of tomatoes have been prolific! Being an urban farm I don't have the luxury of getting off schedule on fall planting. These suckers were taking their precious time to ripen and when they do the bugs beat me to it.

Long story short the plants needed to be culled, which left me with 7 pounds of green tomatoes. @chef_matty is a lover of salsa, so salsa Verde it is!

The afternoon was spent humming along to my favorite Christmas tunes and canning fresh salsa with my own tomatoes, garlic, onions, oregano, and peppers.

Happiness is found in the small moments of time. The sound of popping lids is the sound of my childhood. Be here now.

Evening primrose got away from me last year and has spread like wildfire! Alas I need clear these beds for fall planting and they must all go!

These babies are going to other herbalists in the community to process in to healing teas, salves, and such.

With our large fig harvests I try to stay creative with recipes so we don't get burned out.

This one has officially been added to the favorites list! Fig, prosciutto, goat cheese open faced sandwiches πŸ˜‹

Everything was made in house including the bread with the exception of the prosciutto and goat cheese.

I won't even lie... we didn't manage to pull out plates. We just inhaled them while standing around the stove πŸ˜…

Growing tomatoes in the South is long held tradition. Cultivating the perfect tomatoes that match in color, size, and quantity is a badge of honor. I come from a long line of farmers, but couldn't get a decent tomatoe harvest to save my life!

This year it has all changed. Some handy tips handed down from another seasoned farmer and some soil correction has made this a booming season!

Next up is canning all of these beauties so they will last us until next summer.

Swarm updates: 3 hives, 3 Queens, and 2 queen cups. All in all I would say these all look pretty healthy. Planning some natural VM treatments soon. I saw some wing deformations in box 2.
