makingofahomehomestead on InstgramFuture pollinators 😍🌿🐛 #urbanhomestead #polinators #monarchbutterfly #hungrylittlecaterpillar #backyardgardenThis morning, I set out to complete the chores before it got too hot, and I couldn’t help but notice all those around me who were also working so diligently this morning. This work of the pollinators always amazes me. It floors me that so much miraculous work is being done every single day by these beings, often without anyone taking note. So today, I give thanks for my time spent working beside these industrious insects 💚🙌🏻🌿 #polinators #polinating #beesbutterfliesandblooms #homestead #urbanhomestead #gardening (P.S.

I am so grateful to see these beauties FINALLY on my table...even though it is August. 🌿 #2018garden #homestead #urbanhomestead #growityourself #nofilterneeded #earthsgreatbountyGarlic Time! 🙌🏻 #homegrowngarlic #firsttimeeffort #homestead #urbanhomestead #growityourself #gardeningFinally! 🙌🏻🍅🌿 #tomatotime #homestead #urbanhomestead #garden #gardening #growityourself #tomatobasilsaladI love that I get to share my passions with others in the Rockford community 🌿 #rockriverymca #ilovemyjob #canningisfun #allthecoolpeoplearedoingit #gardeningSaturday morning harvest 🌿 #homestead #calendula #lemonbasil #kale #growityourself #backyardgarden #freshbreakfast #weekendvibesLife is pretty rough for this one 😍 #mousehunter #homestead #summerelaxationI’ve tried for YEARS to grow watermelon and have never succeeded.
