Jenelle Evans has quite the green thumb! The former Teen Mom 2 star took to Instagram on Saturday, June 1, to show off an impressive array of seemingly homegrown fruits, vegetables and other yummy foods.
Her large haul consisted of tomatoes, peppers, eggs and more. Evans, 27, captioned the post: “#Homestead living.” She also included the emojis for gardening and a beating heart (Homestead living is defined as a lifestyle of self-sufficiency that is characterized, in part, by growing one’s own food.)
The food-centric update comes as the reality star is fighting to regain custody of her children. Evans and husband David Eason were stripped of custody last month after Eason, 30, admitted to shooting and killing Evans’ dog, Nugget – a move he made after claiming the pet bit the couple’s 2-year-old daughter, Ensley.
Jenelle’s mom, Barbara Evans, now has temporary custody of the toddler after Child Protective Services removed her, Kaiser, 4, whom Jenelle shares with ex Nathan Griffith, and Eason’s daughter, Maryssa, 11, from the couple’s farm. (Kaiser was placed in his dad’s custody.) Barbara also continues to look after Jenelle’s son Jace, 9, whom she has had custody of since he was a baby.
The dog ordeal also led MTV to fire Jenelle from Teen Mom 2. “MTV ended its relationship with David Eason over a year ago in February 2018 and has not filmed any new episodes of Teen Mom 2 with him since,” an MTV spokesperson exclusively told Us Weekly in a statement last month. “Additionally, we have stopped filming with Jenelle Eason as of April 6, 2019 and have no plans to cover her story in the upcoming season.”
As many Instagram users noted, Jenelle’s wedding ring is visible in multiple photos of her food haul, indicating she and Eason are still together. Scroll down to see what she’s been growing on the farm as she fights for custody of her kids.
