I was lucky enough to get a photo of this resident blue banded bee exploring my cucumbers 🐝🥒 It zooms around so quickly that I normally hear it before I see it!

Its difficult capturing the true beauty of my little food forest. Every corner have its own story to tell and every hour of the day creates sun or shades on hidden plants and veggies slowely making its way. I never ever dreamed that I would be growing so much beautiful organic veggies on a once dry piece of land - in the heart of the dry karoo with his very hot summers and icy frosty winters and lots of terrible wind... and getting so much satisfaction and happiness out of it. It simply makes me so happy - every minute and hour spending weeding, seeding, planting.... harvesting, enjoying, learning and dreaming . Happy weekend 🌱🌱🌱. . . . #lifeisagarden #happygardeninglife #epicgardening #easterncape #karooheartland #sustainable #karooplaas #boeremeisie #plaas #easterncape #southafrica #permaculture #foodforest #notillsoil #plot #allotment #jardin #moestuin #backyardgardening #seedtofoek #slowfood #foodie #green #healthy #vegan #grow #beautyinmygarden #beauty #ediblegarden #edibleflower

I absolutely love Kohlrabi, perfect in salads raw, cooked in a stir fry or roasted for a yummy Sunday lunch. Don’t forget about the leaves they are great too and you can stir fry or boil them. The health benefits also pack a punch 🤛 it surprisingly has more vitamin C than an orange! So get munching on the Kohlrabi to get that immune system going in this cold and flu season. #kohlrabi #growfromseed #allotment #healthylifestyle #healthyfood #health #healthbenefits #vitaminc #organic #organicliving #gardentotable #kitchengarden #mybackyard #vegtables #vegetablegarden #horticulture

These ‘Ancho Magnifico’ chiles at CP Garden in Hillsborough, California will be perfect for post-Thanksgiving chiles rellenos when the family is tired of leftovers. We love these monsters from —in every garden the plants are huge, robust, and prolific. It’s our go-to poblano chile variety. #gardeningmakesmehappy #gardeninglife #plantlife #thehappygardeninglife #balconygardening #urbangardenersrepublic #plantlove #growwhereyouareplanted #gardeningaustraliamag #organic #urbangardener #ediblegarden #composting #growyourownfruit #seedaddict #helianthus #brickpath #wintersalads #zahrada #oogst #nodig #raisedbeds #microfarm #allotment #cucamelon

Peachy keen jelly bean. 🍑🍑 I really thought these would be ready to pick, but they are still hard as a rock. Maybe another week or so.

What a sunny day🌞🌞 of course makes all seedlings happy 🍃🍃 It's time for transplanting them into the system🌱🌱 .. Saat nya memindah tanam pakcoy 😊 sudah lumayan lama ya kami tidak menanam pakcoy 🍀🍀 Semoga tidak ada kendala hingga memasuki masa panen nanti. Ini pakcoy usia 13 harian (hss), yang tak pernah kekurangan asupan sinar matahari, dan sedari kecil mereka sdh diberi nutrisi sekitar 600 - 800ppm. Oleh karna nya semaian menjadi besar dan montok. Saat pindah tanam, mereka kami beri nutrisi sekitar 1300an. .................................................................. #vegetables #pakchoi #gardener #gardenlife #hydroponics #growyourown #growyourownfood #thehappygardeninglife #gardeningisfun #urbangarden #homegrownveggies #instagardenlovers #hidroponik #hidroponikindonesia #growwhatyoueat #urbanfarming #pertanianperkotaan #gardening #berkebundirumah #greenthumb #growsomethinggreen #urbanagriculture #vegetablegarden #growwhatyoueat #homegrown #gardentotable #lovegrowsinthisgarden #ediblegarden #veggiepatch #allotment #epicgardening

This is a scene that brings a little joy to my heart. On a cold winter's evening, I switch out the lights. The glow of a few Christmas lights and the embers in the hearth remain; warm and gentle. I go to check on my daughter. She sighs contentedly between puffy snores and turns over, safe and sound. I climb into bed, cosied by the hot water bottle, nestled under weighty blankets as a trickle of crisp winter air filters through the tiniest gap in the window. The cat slips through the cat flap, hurriedly padding up the stairs to find a warm spot between me and the blanket. His long fur is soft and full, billowed by the cold, and he smells of earth and moss. He soon settles, leaning his weight against my back, smd brfote long is lulling me towards sleep with the quietly rhythmic rise and fall of every snoozy breath. These moments of peace are golden. In these moments, I don't want for anything. In these moments, I'm happy just to *be*. . . . #homestead #smallholding #smallestsmallholding #cottagegarden #urbangardening #urbangarden #urbangardenersrepublic #garden #goodlife #gardening #mygarden #instagarden #potager #ediblegarden #kitchengarden #organic #veggies #organicfruit #permaculture #healthyfood #allotment #gyo #growyourownfood #growyourown #winter #vegan #hygge

And... SUSTAINABLE 🌎 the last “S” of our values 🌿💚🌿 There are a lot of companies out there that claim to offer ‘sustainable’ products. Many of these products are produced by unconventional means that are harmful to the planet or they just plain don’t work. We don’t think it’s right to call something ‘green’ if you’re just sweeping Dirt under the rug 🤪 Dirt, after all, should be used for growing gardens and promoting successful plants! Good Dirt mixes come from sustainably managed peatlands and our Plant Food & PlantBiotics come from a zero waste manufacturing facility. Our products use recycled BogBits and oilseed extract from the feed and food industry that otherwise would be thrown out. #DigGoodDirt . . . #gooddirt #growningooddirt #zerowaste #sustainability #sustainableliving #soil #fertilizer #plantbased #allotmentlife #farmlife #allotment #gardencenter #plantshop #upcycle #recycle #gardening #gardener #horticulture #horticulturist #grower #greenhouse #botany #botanical #urbangarden #urbanorganicgardener #urbangardener #plantlove #urbanfarm #greenthumb

Hearty miso soup with turkey/ginger/garlic chive meatball, eddo potato and Japanese burdock. ・ ・ 七面鳥の韮団子と里芋、ごぼうのお味噌汁。 ・ 生姜を効かせた肉団子。鶏ひき肉は売っていないので七面鳥(ターキー)使用です。 ・ 食べる時に柚子胡椒をほんの少し加えて。里芋の程よいとろみと素材のお出汁が出てとってもおいしかった。はあ〜、寒い日に温まります。 ・ ・ ・ ・ ・ ・ ・ ・ ・ ・ ・ ・ ・ ・ ・ ・ ・ #miso #misosoup #Japanesefood #turkey #Japaneseburdock #allotment #eddo #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #f52grams #yuzu #ターキー #七面鳥 #味噌汁 #ニラ #家庭菜園 #里芋 #ごぼう #収穫 #野菜 #イギリス #ロンドン #海外で和食 #おうちごはん #クッキングラム #暮らし #とりあえず野菜食 #マカロニメイト #クックパッド #おうちごはんlover #私のおいしい写真

Hello friends, old and new. It’s been a while since I’ve introduced myself. And, a little throwback to homegrown summer flowers felt like just thing to kick off the weekend. I’m Meg, the photographer and writer who rather loves to hunker down behind my prose than show myself; there’s too much beauty to share, and I prefer to focus on the gorgeous gifts of nature. Gardening is my everything, and I have enjoyed gardening for several decades with my husband; over the years, vegetable gardening has become the fabric that knits together the passage of time. If we aren’t starting seeds, we are tending the transplants. If it’s fall, we are putting food up (the fast way, in a root cellar), and then we dream and plan and order seeds to start all over. This week I’m getting our indoor hydroponic system setup with lettuce and cilantro. This Winter I will be starting some of my pepper seeds super early, earlier than February, in hopes of a hot and productive summer ahead. It’s always garden season here in chilly Minnesota, we just have to get creative and stay positive while Mother Nature gives our soil a good, cleansing rest. We are still eating from the garden in December, thanks to good storage of our healthy root crops. Growing a variety of cut flowers from seed was a new venture for me this year in addition to managing all of our veggie beds, and I will continue to expand on my deer resistant cut flower garden. I am also really passionate about native gardening, and we are in the middle of a large landscape project transitioning formerly invasive woods to a more functional, wildlife-friendly, wild edible landscape: more pollinators, more amphibians, more birds, and more mammals is the goal. The landscape is my canvas, and this is the place where I most enjoy sharing our work with you all. Happy Friday! I’d love to hear where you live and what your favorite flower is to grow. 💚 #seedtofork #gardenchat #minnesotagarden #growsomethinggreen #cutflowers #homegrown #growyourown #slowflowers #organicgardening #mygarden #inmygarden #greenthumb #minnesota

I rarely plant a garden without nasturtium. Even in Nashville, where summers get much too hot for these gorgeous guys, I always try to squeeze them in early spring and late fall. In Chicago we’re lucky to have them thrive all season long. There are so many colorways, but the deep blue-green foliage of Empress of India with their scarlet blooms have to be my favorite.

Pickled chillis🌶🌶 . My chilli plants loved the sun this year and have now moved indoors to keep me spicey over winter. 🌨☃️ This batch have been pickled. Such a yummy way to eat a chilli and completely plastic and preservative free. 😁 I love them chopped and sprinkled over a salad. Recipe below-enjoy!!!! . 600g chillis, 15 peppercorns, 5 bay leaves, 2 tbsp coriander seeds, 5 tsp salt, 7 tbsp caster sugar and 1l white wine vinegar Score chilli along the side and remove seeds. Poor boiling water over chillis, sit for 5 mins, then drain to remove any lingering seeds. Heat sugar and vinegar until sugar dissolves. Divide chillis and all other ingredients between sterilized warm jars. Pour vinegar liquid into jars and cap. Leave in fridge for 2 weeks before eating. . #chillis #pickledchillis #growyourown #organic #allotment #greenhouse #pickling #homegrown #jamieoliver #plastic #singleuseplastic #zeroplastic #zerowaste #zerowasteliving #zerowasteliving #vegan #vegetarian #spice #spicey

At least the sun was shining and keeping the two island paradise birds perched on the tree branch a shade warmer than me on their raised bed! Can you spot the single Snowball turnip?

Any tips for #jerusalemartichoke or Sunchokes? These were planted around 6 years ago before I had adopted the no dig approach. Not harvested them for 3 years in the hope they would spread, but no such luck! I’ve planted them in containers to see if I can improve the yield next year. On another note the fungus network in the soil looks great so looks like the no dig is doing it’s magic! #growwhatyoueat #calledtobecreative #eatwhatyougrow #growyourownfood #growyourown #veggiegarden #kitchengarden #ediblegarden #gardening #mygardentoday #growfood #growfoodnotlawns #urbanfarming #potager #jardin #garten #huerto #allotment #nodig #raisedbeds #permaculture #chef #gardenersofinstagram #growsomethinggreen #vegetablegardening #urbanorganicgardener #backyardgardening #growfromseed #homestead

We discussed a very important subject at college last night. A guest speaker came to my horticulture class and we learnt about the importance of wildlife in our gardens. I’ve always loved wildlife and I always had the intention of creating my allotment to coexist with the creatures that rely on it as a green space. I came home from class feeling, well... many feelings! Fear for the future of our native species, inspired to teach others what I learnt and an eagerness to get back to the allotment to see what animals I could find and how I could improve on what I already do for them. . Why is it so important? Well, our gardens and allotments form a network of green corridors and habitats that are vital for their survival. It takes very little money or effort to create little spots for them to take refuge. Having a range of habitats = a more diverse range of predators that prey on garden pests. . I hope to make my allotment even more inviting for our amphibians, mammals, birds and insects next year. I would love for you to join me and maybe even do the same to give them a fighting chance of a future! 🌎🐛🐝🦋🐞🕷 . #newt #smoothnewt #allotment #wildlifegarden #rhsstudent #horticulture #nature #conservation #nativespecies #habitat #gardener #amphibiansofinstagram #allotmentlife #gardening #sustainability #ecofriendly #organicgardening

Trotz meiner kleinen Gewächshaus Heizung ist die Temperatur unter Null im Gewächshaus gegangen und die Bananenpassionsfrucht hat alle Blätter abgeworfen - mal schauen, was Isolierfolie so ausmacht..

I knew making the new Wisteria bed wasn’t going to be easy. 6-8 inches of concrete later and it’s cleared. Filled up with compost that I’ve tamped down. This will be left to settle before planting. When creating beds next to a building, be sure not to damage any existing damproof and install fresh if needed👍👍 . . #wisteria #bed #thehairyhorticulturist #countrylife #gyo #kitchen #kitchengarden #cornwall #vegetables #vegetablegarden #garden #gardening #gardener #countryside #horticulture #allotment #growyourown #veg #plant #sustainable #seasonalvegetables #veggarden #allotmentlife #growyourownfood #gardenerslife #southwest #pub #pubgarden #polgoothinn #polgooth
