It's been a long time since I've shared a photo of myself. Just of myself, without my son. I thought it appropriate then, to share this one...with The Sun. I think I look different after having a child, maybe more tired...maybe I don't look different at all. Just an internal feeling of transformation, changing my perspective. Anyway, I feel a bit odd doing this these days...but I enjoy reflecting on transformation and change. Enjoy your day. 🌱✌🏻☀️
CSA day!
Summer squash: zucchini, patty pan, other yellow varieties. Romanesco cauliflower. Broccoli. Red cabbage. Spring onions. Pickling cucumbers. Pepper assortment: (sweet) green bell, picnic red, (hot) jalepeno, cayenne type. Tomatoes: two large slicers, a basket of assorted cherry varieties.
Yum! ...

Ladies, especially ladies that are mommas...lets talk periods, postpartum. When did yours return? We are 14 months in and my period still hasn't returned, I'm not bummed about it, except for the fact that the last few months for a few days I get super crampy, tired, cravings and totally feel like I'm on my period. Like my body is wanting to regain the cycle, but isn't able to go fully there. Anyway, I made up this nourishing women's blend of herbs to sip on in hopes it relieves some of these symptoms. #redraspberryleaf #redclover #oatstraw #peppermint #nettles #tulsi #herbalteablends #homegrown #medicine
This past week temps rose over 110!! We spent our days at the coast basking in a much more enjoyable 75, chasing waves, and playing in the sand. Realizing the difficulty this summer is going to be here on the farm, with no shade, and no house. Living in an airstream trailer certainly has its perks, but without any cooling-absolutely unbearable after 9am on days like this. Feeling grateful for the ocean to provide relief from the heat this week. How do you guys stay cool in the summer heat with babies?? #coastaladventures #mendocino #california
Oren's breakfast(and mine), featuring strawberries we grew, yogurt we made, and oats with butter from our cow & apple butter from last years apples :) #babymeals #babyledweaning #toddlermeals #babyledweaningideas #babyfood #eatinseason #farmmeals #paystohaveadairycow
100% farm produced frittata. Proud farmer mom moment.
Every single bit of this dish we grew or raised..amen to self sufficiency! #frittata #eggs #cheese #milk #butter #sundriedyomatoes #driedsweetpeppers #driedzucchini #broccoli #kale #turnips #growyourown #farmlife #selfsufficient
...and then you turn around after packing all your boxes in a big hurry to your baby-fully clothed-splashing in your dirty pre soak tub!! 😝😂
Oh the joys of #farmingwithbabies #farmlife #farmraisedkids

Not my best #producephotography this week-started harvest later than ideal-but still a beautiful and very green spread. #beets #beetgreens #cabbage #broccoli #greenlettuce #redlettuce #turnips #tatsoi #garlicscapes #kale
Thankfully this week we spent lots of time in the field so we'll be moving past such leafy boxes very soon and get into some meaty veggies! Yay for summer! Yay for farming! Yay for life! #supportyourlocalfarmer #csa #csabox #communitysupportedagriculture #eatlocal #eatfresh #eatgreen #farming #farmlife #veggies #healthyeating #week6
Orens lunch was pretty photogenic today on his special @avanchyshop suction plate. (Only one that doesn't get whipped across the room) Delicious halibut caught by our friends in Alaska with sauerkraut we made from our cabbages and fresh harvested broccoli from the garden with a squirt of lemon over it all :) yum #babyfood #babyledweaning #probiotics #iron #protein #fats #balancedmeals #feedbabiesrealfood #babyledweaningideas #feedinglittlepeople #nourishing
Dream big, little guy. The earth is yours to play with.
Bed prep all day with my little man, this was only taken during step two-raking/shaping. We then top dressed with hemp powder and compost..& they are currently being watered in overnight. Tomorrow comes planting...and in months from now we will be digging an absurd amount of potatoes from these rows <3

Let me just tell ya, this is WAY more fun than squeezing buttermilk out of 6lbs of butter weekly...
Needed to change up our cream usage plus I've been dying to make some ice cream since the weather warmed up! So far I've made #honeylavender #sweetchamomile #gardenmint and #chocolate
All of which use 5 out of 6 ingredients that we produce here on the farm. Using only local @loverslanefarm honey as the sweetener. I am so excited to be selling these at at our farm stand this summer!
I am especially proud of this weeks spread for a number of reasons...but mostly because I did it alone!!- well with the help of a 12 month old baby.. 😝😂 Oren(baby) and I got produce for 10 boxes harvested, processed, packed and ready in the stand by our set start time, all while juggling his needs. Feels so empowering to accomplish something like this on my own..farmer dad had dental surgery early this morning and couldn't be home for the CSA box. Farmer mom to the rescue! Yay! Isn't it beautiful!?#supportyourlocalfarmer #especiallyoneswithkids
