makingofahomehomestead on InstgramLast night’s Culminating Event for the YMCA’s “The Art of Photography” was a rather emotional evening for me. The brilliant photographs the participants were able to produce with only 2 months of instruction were truly amazing. I was also filled with the spirit of my mom, as I organized an event in true “Jonie-fashion” (complete with many of her serving pieces 😉). “I learned it from my mama.” 💚💚💚Look what I just found in the garden!🍂🙌🏻🍁 #rightaroundthecorner #backyardgarden #fall2018 #falldecor #growityourselfFuture 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. The last picture is just because 😍...because someone needs to supervise all that work 😉)This is our 10th year of cultivating our garden, and I would have to say it has been the slowest producing garden. 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 #weekendvibes
