makingofahomehomestead on InstgramI am sure glad I created this nook tucked back in the corner of the garden this year. 🌿 I think it’s my new favorite spot of our home 💚 #backyardgarden #backyardgardener #homesteadinglife #urbanhomestead #homestead #peaceful #peacefullmind #peacefulheart #homesteading #growityourselfI saw this today and it really rang true in my heart. Learning AND socialization can take place in many places...within the classroom AND within the larger community. It doesn’t have to be one way or the other. #educationiseverywhere #educationinallplaces #homeschooling #worldschooling #homeschoolmom #homeschoolfamilyArugula Garlic Scape Pesto 🌿 The arugula and garlic scapes are bangin’ in the garden right now, so I decided to put a spin on my usual pesto (Recipe can be found on the blog. Link in profile.) But for this goodness: 🌿Handful of raw walnuts 🌿Handful of Parmesan 🌿2 Garlic scapes chopped 🌿8 cups arugula 🌿Splash of lemon juice Whirl away in a food processor or blender. Continue blending... 🌿Add avocado oil (or olive oil) and salt until you get to a consistency and taste you prefer. Enjoy! #backyardgarden #backyardgardener #homesteadinglife #urbanhomestead #homestead #growityourself #garden #arugula #garlic #realfood #closetothesourceStrawberries straight from the garden 🍓 I’m not sure there is anything better than this 🌿 #garden #backyardgarden #backyardgardening #growityourself #homestead #homesteading #growyourownstrawberries #homesteadingfamily #rockfordil #homeschool #homeschoolingfamily #homeschoolmomHad an absolute blast with these ladies last night! 💚 Jordan and Donnie weren’t that bad either 🔥🔥🔥 #betterwithage #theyvestillgotit #wevestillgotit #hangintoughHeaven 🌳Chamomile for days 🌿 #homesteadinglife #backyardgardener #urbanhomestead #backyardgarden #homestead #homesteadingFinally. 🙌🏻 The rain in northern Illinois this year has been crazy, but I finally finished planting our 2019 garden...only about 3 weeks later than usual 🙄 #homestead #homesteading #homesteadinglife #urbanhomestead #garden #gardening #backyardgarden #backyardgardener #growityourselfTODAY is the day!
