Some #ediblegarden updates 🌿 All of our plants are sprouting except for our garlic (which I think just takes longer) and our herb garden (which we planted later than everything else)! So excited! We need to finish thinning them out once they establish themselves a but further, but overall I'm pleased with the progress ☺️ Now to start some alfalfa and lentil sprouts for sandwiches and salads 🌱 . . . . . #ourhomestead #happyhomesteading #homestead #homesteading #backyardgarden #backyardgardening #growwhatyoueat #growbabygrow #outdoorgardening #plantsmakepeoplehappy #plantsofinstagram #plantsplantsplants #greenhouse #greenbeans #spinach #onions #peas #mungbeans #carrots #purplebellpepper

Love when the Vitex blooms! 💜(swipe for a close up) In other news, I ordered a canvas art print today from @kirklands. It’s on clearance for only $29.97! (swipe one more time to see) And it’s 40” X 40” which is perfect for where I’m putting it. It’ll be replacing the current print over the buffet table in my dining room. The current print is behind glass and it reflects things every time I take a pic. (And I’ve had it for 19 years, so that’s my justification for purchasing a new one, lol) That’s why I love canvas art so much, no reflections! I looked at this canvas online last week, but didn’t buy it. Then today they sent me an email saying “You loved it, and we lowered the price for a limited time!” SOLD! Good marketing Kirkland’s, good marketing! 😁Just wanted to share in case anyone is looking for a similar canvas. And at this price, they’ll sell out fast. Since it’s on clearance, it’s a final sale item with no returns, but at that price, even if I don’t use it in the dining room, I’m sure I can find a place for it somewhere. Okay, I’ll stop talking now. 😊Happy Friday! ✨

Oh dear. Every year I do my best to get to all of my radishes before they bolt, but a good chunk always gets away from me. They have such cute blooms though! For all of you experienced Gardner’s, am I doing something wrong? Should they be planted earlier? 🤷🏻‍♀️ . . . #EatYourVeggies #MyGarden #GrowFoodNotLawns #Gardening #Organic #OrganicGardening #GrowYourOwn #Foodscape #UrbanGarden #GardenersOfInstagram #GirlGardener #BackYardGarden #EdibleLandscape #VegetableGardening #VegetableBlooms #RaisedBedGardening #Radishes

New fence is up and hubs is now home from his week-long road trip trying to generate more NDT sales. (Anyone know anyone who needs some quality non-destructive test equipment? Cause I know the best guy!!!) Anyway, thought I’d welcome my Honeyman home with a wine-infused, slow cooked beef pot roast stew and accompanying French baguette (for dipping) to start the long weekend off right!!

A simple trick in planting a flower planter you may want to give a try. 1. Arrange flowers how you want them in planter. . 2. Empty flowers and put them to the side in the order you had them in planter. Keep small empty pots inside the planter. . 3. Fill soil under pots so that the lip of the little pot lines up height-wise with the planter. . 4. Fill all the spaces around pots with potting soil. Don’t worry if potting soil goes inside little pots. . 5. Pack soil firmly around pots. Then remove pots one by one (dump extra soil in pots back into bag, or wheelbarrow in my case.) . 6. Fill hole with the plant that was there before. They should plop right in. Gently pat around each plant to secure it a little better. . Viola. You have a flower planter. 🌸🌼🌿🌺🌻 Thoughts? Have you done this before? I think the only thing I’d do differently, is put my planter IN my wheelbarrow so I didn’t have to be so careful about soil falling out the sides as I was packing it in. 🤓

Does anyone else have to have a horse gate around their garden? Just me? 🍅 🌱 🥬🥦🥕 Now is such a perfect time to get your own spring garden going! There are dozens of seed packets for fruits, vegetables and flowers you can pick up at the dollar store. Compost green waste and kitchen scraps to feed your plants extra nutrients and in a few weeks or months you won’t regret it 🤓🌱

Just a little experiment I did a few months back. Because my soil is so rock filled, I planted some garlic in containers and some in the ground. Look at the difference in roots and garlic size: the first photo, with giant roots and rich color are the ones in containers, and the smaller garlic in the second photo, with very small roots, were grown in the ground. And, the ground garlic was planted a month before the container garlic. I will definitely continue to grow garlic and all of my root vegetables in containers.

We had a busy/ productive week getting the veggie garden & berry patch (strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries & grapes) prepped and a good chunk planted. This is the first growing season in are home so there was extra work this year building the raised beds and making the garden bigger. In the garden we planted green beans, beets, carrots, potatoes, butternut squash, spaghetti squash, 2 varieties of zucchini & a few different varieties of pumpkins. Some of the things we are still planning to plant are peppers, cucumbers, tomatoes, different lettuce varieties, kale, spinach,radish, and different melons. Can’t wait for all the delicious veggies & fruit to come later this summer🌱👨🏼‍🌾👩🏼‍🌾🥕🍓💕 . . . . #growyourownveggies #homegrownveggies #veggiegarden #heirloomvegetables #thehappygardeninglife #growyourownfood #organicgardening #growsomethinggreen #veggiegarden #gardentotable #eatwhatyougrow #growyourfood #homegrown #gardenfresh #greenthumb #growyourown #healthylifestyle #registereddietitian #dietitiansofinstagram #productiveweek #backyardgarden

“A world without tomatoes is like a string quartet without violins." ~Laurie Colwin . 🌱 There seems to be a certain amount of controversy amongst gardeners on whether one should prune their tomatoes 🍅—the suckers in the armpit between stems. All of my heirlooms are indeterminate, with a long growing season well into the fall, as compared to determinate, which have a shorter set growing period with all of the fruits coming in at the same time—good for pots and in colder climates with a shorter growing season. I prune mine every few weeks, leaving a few behind, to limit the nutrient hungry foliage and the amount of space they take up. ❓Do you prune your tomato plants❓ . ✨ #tomatoes #tomato #pruning #heirloomtomatoes #tomatoplant #homegrowntomatoes #ediblegarden #gardentotable #kitchengarden #ediblelandscaping #homegrown #vegetablegarden #raisedgardenbeds #lauriecolwin #tomatolove #growyourownfood

What a difference a year makes! This pic was taken in June last year. The last two years have been spent coming out a fog of yuck, having a son, re-building my life and relationships. The garden has been everything to me. It gives me breath and a calm place when I just can't deal for a few minutes. (Or hours) I will be forever greatful to The Hubs and my family for standing by me through it all.

My first indigo Rose Tomato. I was so excited to plant this variety! Mostly because they are gorgeous! Purple but almost black on top and red on the bottom when ripe. Such a showstopper in the garden. As far as taste I would say these guys won’t make it back for another season. Bland is probably the best suited word for the taste. Not worth the garden space for another season but I am glad I gave them a go! They produce great here in AZ for anyone wondering. I will stick with cherry and sungold varieties for now! #Garden #Gardening #Organic #OrganicGarden #OrganicGardening #Tomatoes #IndigoRose #Purple #BackyardGarden #Tomato #CherryTomatoes #Scottsdale #Arizona #Allotment #VeggiePatch #Plot #Spring

And we have our first harvest from the #MowerTower ! Look at that beautiful soil from the vermicomposting tube!! 🎉🎉🎉 . Remember how I'm getting weird about food waste? This is one exciting step farther in that! Now the ruffage from scrap broth and our fruit scraps go into the vermicompost tube and the worms turn them into beautiful rich soil! That we then will be growing new veggies in! (Please tell me I'm not the only millennial singing "The Circle of Life" in my head right now). . This is all perfect timing as we're prepping the backyard for phase 2 of the garden to go in now that we're officially past our last Frost date and the cold front is moving on! This fresh soil went into the section where our peas and beans will be going in. Mmmmmmm!! . Anyone else excited to finally be able to plant outside instead of being jealous of Phoenix and Florida gardeners already pulling produce from their gardens?! . . . . .

Some of the things in bloom in my yard right now and making me happy. Walking around and checking in on all my plants and flowers out there is one of my favorite things. I'm still having days where I'm struggling with health stuff, and having my gardens to work in and be in is so important right now. 1 & 2 are Columbines, 3 is Balloon Flower, 4 is Geum, 5 is Dahlietta, 6 is Delphinium, 7 are Iceland Poppies, 8 is Rhododendron, 9 is Chives, and 10 is Lily of the Valley. . . . #mygardentoday #backyardgarden #springblooms #springgarden #gardenlife #columbineflower #balloonflower #geum #icelandpoppy #rhododendron #chives #lilyofthevalley

As well as growing lots of lovely flowers and edibles, we want to make our garden and plot friendly to the local wildlife. Last year we put in a small wildlife area in our garden. We created a small pond by sinking a flexi-tub bucket and filling it with water. A year on and it’s full of life! We have at least 2 frogs living in it, as well as water snails. If you build it, they really do come! 🐸🐌 . . . #wildlife #pond #nature #allotment #allotmentlife #yarden #allotmentuk #allotmentlove #allotmentlife 🌱 #allotmentgarden #homegrown #allotmenteer #backyardgarden #urbangarden #urbangardening #veggarden #homegrown #homegrownfood #myhappyplace #gardenersofinstagram #instagarden #gardengram #growwhatyoueat

How is your garden going so far? Did you remember where you planted everything last year so you can rotate your crops properly? Did you record when you planted everything so you can make any needed adjustments next year? How about just recording the different varieties your growing this year? There is so much to keep track of when growing a garden! The more you keep track of the better you can fine tune your growing practices and get the most out of your garden! I have so enjoyed using the Ultimate garden planner and journal to keep all my records organized.
