Today I managed an hour at the #allotment before work. It wasn't a happy trip but I still walked away smiling. I have apparently neglected my compost bin which has #potatoes growing out of it, I have #bindweed growing better than my #runnerbeans (which are extremely yellow), it's growing around my #pea #obelisk , and my #broadbeans weren't staked and are a flattened mess. BUT!!! The #insecthotel is filling up with #solitarybees , I have a #cucumber flower, and visitors to my #greenhouse in the form of #ladybird and their #larvae ! Okay... truth me told, one of my #tomato plants were covered in #greenfly so I went and found several ladybirds and a larvae and put them on the affected plant. Now that's smart 🤓 #instagarden #allotment #allotmentlife #allotmentuk #growyourown #growlocal

Field bindweed Convolvulus arvensis (Åkervinda in Swedish). Pretty and loved by the bees but I am happy this is not in my garden as they are an invasive stubborn weed. I do have some but I manage to keep them under control. This type of bindweed is a very good climber and survivor, a seed can stay dormant for over 20 years in the soil before it starts growing. And when they grow, they grow fast. Their stem is spiralized, as are other parts of the plant, see for example photo of the buds, and this makes them able to climb on other plants and in the end suffocate them. They go by some other names as well, my favorites are Morning glory and Our Lady's Little Glass. #Bindweed #Morningglory #invasive

今朝、見つけた「昼顔」 タイトルだけみると、ドキドキ(?)しちゃうけど、 薄いピンク色で可愛らしい花😊 2つ並んで、同じ方向を見て咲いていると、 いとおしさをも感じます😌✨ . 誤解を招いてしまう名前の花ですが、 花言葉はとても素敵なんですよ~😉 . 地下茎が網のように広がりしっかりつながっていて、そして、つるが周りに絡まっていく様子から、〝人間関係のつながりの強さ〟を表す花言葉が着いたそうです . . ~昼顔の花言葉~ 『絆』 『友達のよしみ』 『情事』 『縁』 『優しい愛情』 『依存』 . ~フランスでの花言葉~ 『愛の絆の強さ』 『離れていても、心はつながっている』 . ~ピンク色の花言葉~ 『私の愛はずっとあなたの元にある』 . . 2019.6.18 #昼顔 #ひるがお #ヒルガオ #Bindweed #あさがお #昼間の美人 #多年草 #植物 #花 #Flower #summer #夏の花 #夏の植物 #my草木花アルバム #in_Tokyo 🌱

Doris the tortoise has woken from hibernation just in time to help with the weeding! In Somerset we used to call bindweed Granny Pop Out Of Bed and squeeze the base of the flowers to make them pop out of the stems. Now I’m 127 years old and live in the “Home Counties” I call it a bloody nuisance and feed it to the tortoises! #naturenugget #nature #tortoises #bindweed

I actually managed a couple of hours down the #allotment tonight. Ticked a few things off my list; Re-potted my #cucamelons (anybody else's not really doing anything? My seedlings are still smaller than my fingernail) Saved my #raspberries from the #bindweed and found 5 new canes! The rest of the #bitchweed can go f*** itself! Found either new leaves or pods on my #peas - this is a win either way because they were almost dead a while back Lifted some #onions to check for rot - left them drying in the shed. Alas, no rot Found two #ladybirds having a quickie Planted my very small #sweetcorn - I'm not hopeful but meh 🤷‍♂️ Successfully harvested some #beetroot , two #strawberries , a few small #radish , and a s*** load of #broadbeans Found a head on one of my #sunflowers Icing on the cake was the new growth on my long-considered-dead #blackcurrant bush 😁 #instagarden #allotment #allotmentlife #allotmentuk #growyourown #growlocal

I feel like a fully fledged allotmenteer 😇 I have my first raised (ish) bed! Today’s trip to the plot was a productive one. Thanks to help from Matthew the raised bed was finished fairly speedily, and although it’s slightly skew wiv (which is to be expected on my sloped uneven plot) I’m so so happy it’s done. Ideally I need to dig in some goodness and then the next stage will be planting out some of my more ‘heat loving’ plants such as sweet peppers, aubergines, chillis and maybe some tomatoes. Going to feel good finally clearing my plant shelves at home! I also managed to net all my strawberries which are very nearly ripening, as well as stake my broad beans and my drooping blueberry bushes 🙄 Even the front section of the plot got a seeing to and has been tarped so it hopefully dies down! I think ordering a strimmer is next on the cards 🙏🏻 Have we all had a productive few hours whilst the rain subsided? . . . . #ukallotment #allotmentlife #allotmentlove #femalegardener #gyo #growyourownfood #raisedbed #allotment #allotmentuk #growyourown #allotmentblog #allotmentgarden #plot #allotmentdiary #allotmentsofinstagram #notill #notillgardening #bindweed #brambles #overgrown #gardening #organicgrowing #nodig #nodiggarden #couchgrass #weeds #vegetablebed #vegetablegarden

Bindweed...how can I stop it. Its slowly suffocating my Rose's and my fruit trees. I cant use weed killer as its growing on top of the old composter I tried to dismantle to discover it's a home of a family of lizards. Any tips to keep it under control ? #gardeningquestion #bindweed #gyo #allotment

@returntonature do you know this relative and if I can do anything w/ it? My neighbor hates it and I’m looking for ways to address it so she doesn’t have to spray. This and #bindweed.

Post 3 'garden problems'. As you can see here I have the dreaded bindweed. I have found little shoots (and a few big) all across my allotment in the peas and potatoes and strawberries 😭 I have retarded peas and runner beans that just dont want to climb. They just want to lie on the floor (a bit like me some days) I think I have some blight on my some of my broad beans 😭😭😭 bloddy rain! Soooo many blackfly even on my rhubard leaves! And aphids 😭 Where are the ladybirds I have a feast here for you! The late potatoes are flowering before my earliest! Wth! The last photo is of my giant broad bean hes pretty big! Phwoaaar! 😆 So a little positive with the negative. #beginnergardener #crappygardener #amateurgardener #allotmentgardening #allotmentsuk #allotmentsofinstagram #allotments #allotmentlove #growyourownfooduk #gyo #growyourownuk #grow #plantlove #blight #allotmentproblems #blackfly #aphids #wherearetheladybirds #bindweed #cry

In addition to compost tea, we've begun experimenting with FPJ (fermented plant juice). For our first attempt, we tried wild lettuce, mullein, and bindweed - chosen for their vigor, vibrancy, and potential medicinal qualities. . . Desert challenges (aridity and low moisture content in the plants) required adding water to the buckets a few days in but we're pretty excited about the results. We diluted the FPJ and used it as a supplement on our bean beds. . . . #FPJ #fermentedplantjuice #ferment #fermentation #diversity #biodiversity #ecology #ecosystemhealth #naturalfertilizers #bindweed #mullein #wildlettuce #experiment #scienceinthegarden #science #regenerative #regenerativeagriculture #permaculture #desertfarming #desertabundance #desertecology #growyourown #growthefuture #growbettertogether

Clearing bindweed from the garden, this stuff is the bane of my life! Feel bad taking the lovely flowers away from the bees but it's killing the other plants we actually want in the borders. #bindweed #bees #guilt

This is what's happened in the side part of our garden while we've been having this downpour. We cleared this whole area of English ivy and Spanish bluebells during the winter and spring, by digging as much out as we could, only for bindweed to completely take over in this last week or two- I feel like we're back to square one But I'm also good enough to know that these things take time and although it looks so beautiful, like a fairy garden, it's extremely invasive, takes over everything and this area is needed to make way for plants that will be useful to us and wildlife. Food and insect friendly plants will go in this area, so it's got to go! Keep calm and garden on! Hopefully Saturday will bring a little less rain, I hear it will be done by Monday? #thegirlgardener #rainfall #downpour #gardening #theimpatientgardenertakeover #ivy #bindweed #morningglory #lushgreen #greengarden #fairygarden #greenhouse #growyourown #gyo #homegrown #storm #whimsical #greenery #homegrown #vegetablegarden #vegegardening #gardens #instagardeners #patience #persistence #keepgoing #keepcalmandgardenon

Flooded in tears 🥀 . On the second anniversary of the Grenfell Tower fire, it's still impossible to come up with words to relieve the pain and suffering of the people who lost their loved ones and their homes 💚 . Fires are senseless and their destructive force is often indescribable. After the flames and the smoke disappear, what’s left behind is daunting and surreal. No more life. No longer the place you knew and loved. Just silence, darkness and the memories of everything you have lost 😔 . But there are also lessons to learn and actions to take so others don’t have to go through the same. If lives can be saved in the future, it's worth putting some effort into it in the present, rather than waiting for a tragedy to happen again 🙏 . . . . . #london #grenfell #grenfelltower #grenfellfire #grenfelltowerfire #grenfellunited #justiceforgrenfell . #nature #naturelondon #flowers #flowerstagram #bindweed #naturelovers #naturepics #naturephotography #macrophotography

Just made myself a cosy corner in my living room with Tateishi Shoiji Chaiselong, Le Klint 325, my hand painted over size bind weed wallpaper and my favorite bowler hat gilded living room wall. The beautiful pillow is a hand made present from the Majoriaq Narsaq Dream Team made with seal skin from Great Greenland and the symbols of whale tales. This symbolizing that the young students move forward in life ❤️😍🙏🏻 #tateishishoiji #Chaiselong #leklint #heidizilmer #handpainted #floradanica #bindweed #wallpaper #handgilded #bowlerhat #wallart #interiordesign #surfacedesign #highend #luxury #bespoke #customized #gilded #decoration #mylivingroom #korsvejgaard #greatgreenland #majoriaqNarsaq @greatgreenland

What is it that we call Weeds?? . This topic is really something I will be looking in to and re evaluating after listening to a very interesting podcast yesterday by @rootsandallpod talking to @wildmarymary. . Weeds are how you view them. Some are beautiful and useful, food for ourselves, food for bees, bugs and insects, and these insects are all food for something else and part of the chain. This chain and balance with the natural environment is something we all need to look at to protect and rewild. . Some I believe are not useful and can be harmful like this #bindweed (➡️ swipe) that is smothering my raspberries. . I will be allowing areas of my plot to be wild and grow what is meant to be there and what’s naturally in the soil, if only a small part on the side of my (not yet finished 😂) shed it’s a start . @mymonthontheplot #mymonthontheplot #Myallotmentdiary #Allotmentliving #Allotmentuk #growyourownveg #allotmentlife 🌱 #allotments #girlswhogarden #allotmentlove #vegetablegardening #allotmentgarden #growingvegetables #allotmentlife #ukallotment #everyonecangrowtheirown #gyo #allotment #veggiepatch #firstyearallotment #naturegarden #allotmentsuk

#mymonthontheplot 13th June 2019 - Weeds Today is one of those days where I look at the mess and think to myself I should probably just give it up. My job, plus a 6 month old baby, takes up a lot of my time. A couple of weeks ago I was blessed with 5 hours at the #allotment which I put all into weeding. Today, despite the odd bit of weeding between then and now, and the #bindweed has consumed the bottom part of my plot. Again. It's working its way up the bean cane, and it is smothering my #raspberries too. The raised bed project may help, but I don't have time to keep on top of what I have let alone start something that big. I do it all alone too, I don't have an allotment minion or green fingered friend who can help. So now I'm sulking and pondering the future of my forking allotment 🤔 #instagarden #allotment #allotmentlife #allotmentuk #growyourown #growlocal

This is the after photo, or more aptly, the “in process” photo from the northwest end of the garden. I posted a before photo just over a week ago where the bindweed is gleefully running amok. • Now the weeds are hunkered down under the tarp after being ruthlessly weed whacked, slowly growing weaker as they are starved for water and sunlight. I’m hoping a combo of this along with additional organic matter, selective tilling, and different mulching techniques will reduce the bind weed, bit by bit. • For now the kale and kohlrabi are pretty dang happy gleaming away between the tarps. • • • • • #bindweed #slowbutsure #patience #outofsightoutofmind #urbanagriculture

Field Bindweed found along the way hiking to Sunset Peak Saturday. Such a nice simple little beautiful flower. Convolvulus is a genus of about 200 to 250 species of flowering plants in the bindweed family Convolvulaceae, with a cosmopolitan distribution. Common names include bindweed and morning glory; both names shared with other closely related genera.They are annual or perennial herbaceous vines, bines and (a few species of) woody shrubs, growing to 0.3-3 m tall. The leaves are spirally arranged, and the flowers trumpet-shaped, mostly white or pink, but blue, violet, purple or yellow in some species. Many of the species are invasive species weeds; but others are cultivated for their attractive flowers, while some are globally threatened. Convolvulus species are used as food plants by the larvae of some Lepidoptera species, including the convolvulus hawk moth, the sweet potato leaf miner (Bedellia somnulentella) and the gem; the leaf miner Bucculatrix cantabricella feeds exclusively on C. cantabricus. #bindweed #sunsetpeaktrail #fieldbindweed #flowerpic #flowerphoto #flower #flowers #flowerphotos #flowerpix #flowersofinsta #flowerstagram #bindweed #fieldbindweed #flowersofinstagram #cantabricus #convolvulaceae #top_favorite_flower #top_favourite_flower #top_favourite_flowers #bestflower #flower_magic #fleurs #macroinmylife #flowersandmacro #prettyflowers #flowery #bestflowers #bestflowerpictures #ilovemygarden #lovemygarden #sunsetpeak

It has begun!!! Fun fact about me, I've been raising my own morning glories here at the house for over 5 years! It all began from a single pack of seeds given to me by a friend for my birthday. The original crop bloomed and I harvested the seeds for the next year and I have been doing so ever since! This year's crop is already booming with vines growing EVERYWHERE from the intended planted seedlings in the front garden to cracks in the sidewalk to between the pavers in the driveway! The house is ALIVE with vibrant purple flowers!!! I can't even imagine what it'll be like by the end of the summer! 💜🔮💜🧿💜🌺 #morningglory #morningglories #purple #homegrown #convolvulaceae #bindweed #Ipomoeapurpurea

One of my favourite sights. My lovely little blueberries! I’m in a rush now to get these netted. I know the birds will be just as eager to eat them as I am! 🐦 As usual I’ve got lots of plans this week, but the weathers getting in the way. Not even in terms of the rain...I woke up this morning full of cold 🤧 hopefully we’ll have a dry weekend so I can get cracking - but I’m not holding out much hope! ☔️ . . . . #ukallotment #allotmentlife #allotmentlove #femalegardener #gyo #growyourownfood #organic #allotment #allotmentuk #growyourown #allotmentblog #vegetablebed #plot #allotmentdiary #allotmentsofinstagram #lazybed #notill #notillgardening #bindweed #brambles #overgrown #gardening #organicgrowing #nodig #nodiggarden #blueberries
