A pictorial post of life on a modern urban homestead.

Growing up – upscale growing methods
In the animal yard it is chow time!

Fall means clean up time here on the urban homestead. And boy does the grounds of the urban homestead need a good cleaning! Some parts are barren, some a little raggedy round the edges as summer overgrowth comes down (and is composted)
The ducks and chickens have pretty much finished their molting (that was quick – means they are healthy!) So now that they aren’t shedding any more feathers it was time to clean the animal yard, coop and houses with a layer of bedding (old bedding was thrown into our big cinder block compost bin.
We even spotted a few eggs in the nests!
While the temperatures are still warm and mild, the fall crops continue to be planted in the garden on a weekly basis.
Justin has gone into the cellar to bring out the row covers because even though the days are sunny and warm the nights are a bit chilly with temperatures hoovering around 32-30 degrees.
Pretty soon it will winter here so there’s lots to do to get the garden in order.
Today we gals are off to give a canning workshop to some local high school students — photos and stories about the “HARVEST HOMESTEADER” experience coming up and more!
