I know it’s a little weird, but I really love growing cabbage. And this heart-throb is destined for a delicious batch of winter kraut! Might leave it in the garden for a few more days so I can keep looking at it though 😍 #cabbagepatch #brassicalove #freckledhenfarm

Another shot from our first frost yesterday morning. I just may be obsessed with cabbage 😍 #frostedtips #brassicalove #freckledhenfarm #fallgarden

First frost of the season for us here in Northwest Arkansas ❄️ Such a beautiful sight this morning with the pastures glimmering and plant leaves frost-tipped. We got the last of the peppers and tomatoes harvested last night for preserving so all that remains of the summer crops are dried and withered vines. Seeing the seasons change before my eyes is one thing I love about gardening. Experiencing the rhythm of the seasons. #firstfrost #freckledhenfarm #fallgarden

Beautiful cabbage on a dewy fall morning 😍 I'm feelin' the season! #brassicalove #fallgarden #freckledhenfarm
I got our second sowing of greens planted over the weekend - a rare case of succession planting that is easier said than done! Our weather has been all over the place so I used these little pieces of row cover to keep the soil moist and warm. I checked last night and the seedlings were up! Just in time for the warm sunny weather we've got this weekend 🌞 #freckledhenfarm #fallgarden #successionplanting
Our new girls have been quite the productive flock & we're not sad about it. We've been packaging their cute little eggs in berry baskets & it makes me smile every time. 🐓💕 #freckledhenfarm
Spicy mesclun mix coming soon! 🤗 #cantwait #saladsallday #freckledhenfarm
The cabbage, broccoli, and kale are growing so fast with this warm fall weather. Seems like they're bigger every time I check on them! Also I've been trying to keep them sprayed with Bt to reduce the damage from cabbage worms. I'm seeing a little damage here and there on the kale, but nothing to drastic. So far so good! #brassicas #fallgarden #freckledhenfarm
Breakfast in the hen house 🌞🐓 #happyhens #freckledhenfarm
Freshly cut herbs & coffee make for a peaceful morning ☕️ Working on a blog post all about drying homegrown herbs with ease (stay tuned!). 🌿 How are you spending your morning? #freckledhenfarm #herbs #growyourown
Harvesting the very last of our tomatoes for sauce, making quick pickled okra (anyone with a favorite recipe?!) & arranging homegrown flower bouquets for the farmer's 10 year class reunion!✨ We've been together - friends or married - almost all of those 10 years. I love the life we've built. 💛 #freckledhenfarm #freckledhenblooms
Summer crops are out and fall crops are in! We got our broccoli, cabbage and kale planted this week after cleaning up the summer beds. All those dried-up cucurbit vines are gone, replaced by waxy brassicas and soon-to-be lettuce seedlings. Still have zinnias, cherry tomatoes, and okra hanging on, but the reality of fall is starting to set in. #summersover #fallcrops #brassicas #freckledhenfarm
Sunday's haul 💚 Pickling banana peppers, chopping bells for the freezer & planning the week's menu - tomato pie & okra tacos are sure to make an appearance!✨ #freckledhenfarm #homegrown #farmtotable #eattherainbow
I know what we're havin' for supper! #grilledokra 👌🏻💚 #freckledhenfarm #growyourown #seasonalfood #farming
It's been the most pitiful tomato year at #freckledhenfarm! I've been harvesting our tomatoes early & letting them ripe on our countertop to prevent disease. Darn, blight & bugs! But that's the thing about gardening - no matter how much you know or how much you do, you're never *really* in control. There's always an element of surprise, magic & luck with each season!✨🍅❤
Early morning escapees 🐓😑 Some of the hens have discovered how to squeeze out of the coop to grab some early morning treats before Dad comes around with breakfast. Then they happily squeeze back into the coop to eat their feed before escaping again to free-range all afternoon. I guess it's not terrible, but I'm just waiting for the fox to find out about it. Just another fix-it project on the to-do list. 🙄 #alwayssomething #neverendingtodolist #farmlife #chickens #gottalovem #freckledhenfarm
Pickle Relish fresh out of the canner for this winter's beef sliders & hotdogs. 🌭💛 I'll share a blog post soon with the recipe & how-to!✨ #freckledhenfarm #foodinjars

Spending the rest of this warm day right here in the garden. 💚🌿 #selfcare #freckledhenfarm
Rainy days make for poopy eggs! 💩Thank you, ladies! 🐓❤ #freckledhenfarm
Filled up our pantry with the last jar of sauce until our next round of tomatoes ripen 🍅❤ Sweet summertime on the farm... always work to be done! #foodinjars #freckledhenfarm
