A New Beginning

Where's the beef?

A New Beginning | Making Her Mama

Well, where to start something is always the hardest choice. Especially when there is a wide open slate and each choice you make could determine the direction you head.

In the past I have been a chronic unblogger; you know, one of those people who will start a blog, spend hours making it beautiful, write two or three great entries, get everyone sucked into their lives and musings and then forget in a week that the blog even exists.

So, I now have a partner in crime! Perhaps with the two of us we can keep on top of it and remind each other that all of you are actually interested in the crazy antics that we get up to in our kitchens!

So, welcome! We are two hens in the kitchen! Our goal is to share with you the journey we have started with our families to becoming healthy and self sufficient in as many ways as possible. What on earth would inspire us to do such a thing? We both love cooking, we want to feed our families good food that is good for us and the earth and we want to do it cheaply! And the more we looked into possibilities, the more we have learned about all the different areas of life where we can have more control over what we use and where it comes from.

As with all journeys, ours is bound to be filled with bumps and bruises, but we will share it all! The good times, the bad times, the funny stories so you can live, learn and laugh with us too 🙂

    I am looking forward to learning through your experiences! This is something that I have been wanting to establish with our family too. You ladies will be my inspiration that it is possible to start! Nicole

  • Isn't #lettuce cool the way that it grows up and out in a spiral fashion!?! This is our first time growing #iceberg lettuce - it's my hubby's favourite! We've had a weird year with growing lettuces, this one is enjoying the whole stretch of garden to itself because none of the other seeds have sprouted, even from the second seeding! I'm going to be potting some to start and transplant! I NEED LETTUCE (I ❤ salad). How's your lettuce doing this year? Got any #tips or #tricks for me?
  • One of the best things about #homeschooling is the chance for a deep and strong relationship between siblings that would otherwise have no contact with each other!! They're still siblings, they are great together most of the time but sometimes they drive each other crazy and push each other's buttons. But if they didn't have all the time together that they do I don't think I'd get near as many sweet moments like this, curled up on the couch together sharing a moment 💕 What heart melting moments have you had recently?
  • I had never seen a #potato flower before! Growing a garden is so much fun. I can't believe how much I've learned this year and how something can grow from almost nothing. Our #Russianblue potatoes are doing so well - I can't wait to dig them up at the end of the season and see if the beauty below the ground will be as rewarding as it's been above!  Anyone else got potatoes in the garden? What variety did you pick?

  • Our beautiful #paintedlady butterflies are emerging!!! We have 3 so far. This is our fourth year observing their amazing #metamorphosis and it never grows old. Izzy loves their emergence and the excitement of releasing them. This is the first year Mickey Blue has paid any attention to them. He is fascinated by their wings and flapping as they dry them. A few more days and they'll be heading out into the wide open skies (provided the rain ever stops.....)
