💡 Got Omegas? You'd think by my happy little breakfast bowl of pumpkin seed flax granola, raw pumpkin seeds, hemp hearts (all marketed as high in omegas) and a few passionfruit, the answer would be “yes”. But the sad truth is NO, not nearly enough, or not the right kind. I took a poll on stories to see if you'd be interested to hear more about the supplements we take, to compliment our plant-based (99% vegan) diet, or just for general health motives or maladies, and the resounding answer was YES! So first up, let's talk omegas. . Omega-3 fatty ...

😻 You guys. Some of you (crazies... 😒😉) may get "baby fever", but some of us get hit with kitten fever instead. Today, I had the joy of playing with an adorable little orange and white kitten out on a well site, and it sent my kitten fever through the roof! I literally almost stuck him in my pocket and ran. 🏃🏼♀️ Alas, we have a strict 3-cat-max policy, so I will just have to satiate my desires and reminisce on all that was this precious little fuzz bucket ~ bebe Quincy! 🦁💘 . #quincykitten#furchild

🌱 The radishes, onions, and beetroots have sprouted and are slowly forming bulbs. 🥦 The broccoli, cauli, and cabbage are leafy, yet to develop anything that resembles their future selves. 🥔 The potato greens are dying back, but aren't quite ready to be unearthed. 🌸 The peas are climbing, with flowers still to come . 🌿 Until then, Greens 🌿 . #frontyardgarden#eatyourgreens
🔥 Fire Cider Recipe 🍎🌿🍋🌶 . We started with the base recipe from herb queen Rosemary Gladstar (slide 4), then spiced it up with fun optional additions! Her ingredients alone are enough to make a kickass anti-bacterial, anti-viral, immune-boosting tonic ~ the other goodies just make it more so. 👌 Use organic ingredients. Most recipes we found were for 1 quart jar. We scaled up to fill two half-gallon jars. . Recipe, per quart: -1 medium yellow onion, diced -4-5 cloves of garlic, roughly chopped -3-4 tbsp fresh grated horseradish -3-4 tbsp fresh grated ginger root -Raw unpasteurized Apple Cider ...

Herbalists, and those who embrace natural medicine, often call upon this spicy, spunky, tangy tonic to stay healthy during the winter and cold season.

It's ...
🌿 Harvest Demo 🌿 By popular demand, I shot a few videos while I was doing my big weekly harvest of greens, using the "cut and come again" method. . This is how we harvest everything from kale to chard to spinach and lettuce, rather than taking the whole head, meaning the plant is around a whole lot longer to feed you! Always always take from the outermost, lower, older leaves. If you cut the middle center, that is the main growing terminal and will result in small weird offshoots rather than nice new large leaves. . As you can ...

Agave Tobala. Too bad you have to use the heart of this gorgeous plant to make mezcal... I don't really care for drinking liquor much, but homegrown tequila would be pretty awesome! 😈🌵🌠
🍭 Peppermint Swiss Chard 🌿 This is quickly becoming our favorite new-to-us variety of chard. In addition to those gorgeous candy-stripe stems and it's unique, voluptuous, deep-veined, furled leaves (photo 2 😍) it is growing faster than our four other chard varieties ~ a huge plus, since my biggest qualm with chard was always it's slow rate compared to other greens! 👌🏼 . #eatyourgreens#deannasgardentips
