Thankful for the reusable bags in the car, they prove very handy when you find the biggest apple tree you have ever seen in the middle of no where! We take advantage of the abundance of food we have around every corner. Whether its picking mulberries from nearby parks or stopping for roadside apples and pears... we just love free food! . . . #homesteading #foraging #freefood #homesteader #thehappygardeninglife #urbanorganicgardener #urbangardenersrepublic #seedsnow #gardening_feature #canadianhomestead #preserving #applesauce #homemade #maker #gardener #inmygarden #organic #healthy #healthyliving #countryliving #instafood #feildtotable

Got a little carried away meal prepping for the week. Hatch chili and blackbuck enchilada casserole, and venison meatloaf. #feildtotable #meathunter #menthatcook #futuretrophyhusband #howamisingle

Part 3 of Cold smoked salmon (salmon locs). We were really fortunate to have Leejay show us the proper method of cold smoking salmon. After we cured the salmon for 24 hours we the gave it a rub down with spices and brown sugar. We then fire up the smokehouse and kept the fire smouldering for over 48 hours. We didn’t have temperature on our side becuase cold smoking I is something that is better done in the fall due to better colder climate once we pulled it from smokehouse we tried it and vacuum sealed it where if stored correctly it can keep for years. Thanks again the the #oceantribe and Leejay for showing us how to do things right and #howtoperfect #coldsmoke #salmon #vanishingbreed #cohosalmon #coho #bcoutdoors #woodsmen #fishermen #smokedsalmon #feildtotable #catchyourownfood #moncha #keepatit #huntingfishing #oldmethodsneverdie

I’m ready for the season to hurry up and get here already #greenheads #mallard #duck #feildtotable #hunting #waterfowl

Part 2 of cold smoking salmon. Our man Lee Jay taught us and kept us inline with the basics in prep. From where to make the cuts and how treat the meat (as nicely possible) he’s bit rough around the edges but we wouldn’t have it any other way. In a world consumed by political corectness it’s good to spend some time with the vanishing breed. #howtoperfect #smokedsalmon #bcoutdoors #growyourownfood #catchmeoutside #salmonfishing #chinook #cohosalmon #feildtotable #coldsmoke

It was a very successful potato harvest. The kids pitched in and we got it done relatively quickly. We yielded 10 lbs each of red, fingerling, and Yukon gold potatoes! With a total of 30.1 lbs! Our goal this year of growing 150 lbs of food is at the halfway point now. With tomato season, onions and our fall planting still underway, it still seems possible it can be reached. We're going #nodig #notill now so this garden bed is being directly planted in again. This time with lettuces and kohlrabi. . . . . #thehappygardeninglife #seedsnow #organicbuildslife #gardening_feature #organic #healthyliving #garden #gardening #organicgarden #organicgardener #growsomethinglovely #feildtotable #farmtotable #harvest #summer2018 #instagarden #instafood #foodforthought #organic #healthyliving #healthy #urbanorganicgardeners #urbangardenersrepublic #healthy #organic

Personally I have had a small fear of bees,(or rather any nature that buzzes by my head when I'm not paying attention) all my life . Yesterday one of these bees were taking a break on a leaf and I picked it up. I've never noticed how tiny a honey bee was before, and was that it's tongue licking up pollen on said leaf? I wondered and watched. The bee watched me, and I wasn't scared. I didn't think this bee was going to fly at my face stinging my precious eyeballs. Rather, it looked as intreguied as I did. I set the bee down in my female pumpkin flower and soon realized it was already occupied. The bee flew out and that was that. My point? Maybe some things we think are scary really aren't so bad after all. 😊 Hope everyone has a fantastic Sunday! . . . . . #thehappygardeninglife #seedsnow #organicbuildslife #gardening_feature #organic #healthyliving #garden #gardening #organicgarden #inmygarden #foodforthought #growsomethinggreen #growsomethinglovely #feildtotable #farmtotable #instafood #instafarm #growsomethinggreen #homestead #homesteading #canadianhomestead #sustainableliving #honeybee #honey #bee #atlanticdill #pumpkin #halloween2018

Last year we had an early frost that wiped out all 40lbs of our tomatoes. We thought we got some inside in time but unfortunately they all turned black and went mouldy. So this year we transplanted these ones into the ground when they were much older and bigger than the last, hoping to get some before the wicked frost comes raining down once again. Wishing we get at least one BLT this year 🍅🍅🍅🍅🍅 . . . . #thehappygardeninglife #seedsnow #organicbuildslife #gardening_feature #organic #healthyliving #garden #gardening #organicgarden #organicgardener #growsomethinglovely #feildtotable #farmtotable #instafood #instafarm #growsomethinggreen #feildtotable #organicfood #tomato #tomatoseason #yellowboy #homestead #inmygarden #growsomethinggreen

Some toridashi ramen I made with my buddy @masonmartinezzz wild hog we got the other day. This meat is so much tastier than any pork I’ve ever bought from a market, if this is what people call “gamy”... I’m just gonna call it delicious. All the hard work scouting and hiking to get this animal out and turned into a meal is one of the more gratifying/validating feelings I have ever felt in my life. #feildtotable #publiclandowner #bowhunting #exointhewild #backcountryhunting #ramen

Antelope steaks on the grill for lunch I think a guy could do worse. #antelope #wyominglunch #feildtotable
