Love having friends who share their produce! Our avocados aren’t ripe yet and we were so excited to get these Haas avocados from our neighbor today! I see some avocado toast and guacamole in our future! #avocados #avocadotoast #guacamole #greatneighbors #orchard #permaculture #foodforest #backyardgarden #mygarden #mybackyard #growyourownfood #growfoodnotlawns #freefood instafood #fruittree #organicfood #organiclife #urbanhomestead #greenthumb #eathealthy #letfoodbethymedicine #sandiegolife #socal #zone10b #blossomvalleylife #ilovemygarden

Our purple statice or sea lavender is growing everywhere this year. This is one of my non food plants I let grow pretty much wherever it wants to. The butterflies love it and it makes a beautiful addition to the garden. They die back toward the end of summer and come back every year. We had a lady stop by last year and ask if she could cut a huge amount for her wedding, I was so happy to help! They make great additions to bouquets or flower arrangements and dry nicely too! #purple #statice #driedflowers #butterflys #flowersofinstagram #orchard #permaculture #foodforest #backyardgarden #mygarden #mybackyard #growyourownfood #growfoodnotlawns #freefood #organicfood #organiclife #urbanhomestead #greenthumb #eathealthy #letfoodbethymedicine #sandiegolife #socal #zone10b #blossomvalleylife #ilovemygarden

The chayote squash vine is starting to grow. The squash it sprouted from is starting to shrivel. The vine will get to over thirty feet and produce hundreds of squash. Harvest usually starts in mid September. Happy to see it is growing! I still have chayote pickles we made, and some frozen squash for soups from last year. #chayote #squash #vines #orchard #permaculture #foodforest #backyardgarden #mygarden #mybackyard #growyourownfood #growfoodnotlawns #freefood instafood #fruittree #organicfood #organiclife #urbanhomestead #greenthumb #eathealthy #letfoodbethymedicine #sandiegolife #socal #zone10b #blossomvalleylife #ilovemygarden

Rainy day and a high of 59 in May! I don’t even remember what 80 degrees feels like which is strange for SoCal. On the upside the trees are loving the rain! These are Dorsett Apples, Pluots, Almonds, and Navel oranges. It looks like the next crops are going to be huge! We are currently harvesting mulberries, lemons, oranges, tangerines, loquats, bananas, and grapefruit from our orchard. Gotta love fresh fruit! #grapefruit #apples #pluots #almonds #bananas #fruit #orchard #permaculture #foodforest #backyardgarden #mygarden #mybackyard #growyourownfood #growfoodnotlawns #freefood instafood #fruittree #organicfood #organiclife #urbanhomestead #greenthumb #eathealthy #letfoodbethymedicine #sandiegolife #socal #zone10b #blossomvalleylife #ilovemygarden

The pineapple guava is full of blooms! I plant a lot of my trees using the permaculture guild system. Under the guava tree I have artichokes planted. I cut the branches off and mulch the tree with them. I also have a butterfly bush and milkweed planted together right next to the guava. This attracts bees and monarch butterflies. Under the tree I also have herbs that like the shade like my lemon verbena I use for tea or flavored butter. Not only do the plants like growing near each other, they also make a beautiful garden area in the yard. #guava #butterflybush #milkweed #artichoke #lemonverbena #fruittree #fruit #orchard #permaculture #foodforest #backyardgarden #mygarden #mybackyard #growyourownfood #growfoodnotlawns #freefood instafood #fruittree #organicfood #organiclife #urbanhomestead #greenthumb #eathealthy #letfoodbethymedicine #sandiegolife #socal #zone10b #blossomvalleylife #ilovemygarden

I love cooking with homegrown ingredients! This easy frittata started with sautéed onions and garlic from the garden. Then I added four large leaves of garden fresh kale followed by 2 cups of grated Bodega red potatoes we harvested last week. After 5 or 10 minutes of cooking I added a dozen of our chicken’s beautiful eggs mixed with three types of cheese. The cheese was our only store bought ingredient! Mixed some seasoning in and baked in the cast iron pan for 40 minutes at 350. Topped it off with fresh garlic chives! So good! Can’t beat homegrown! #frittata #chickens #eggs #castironskillet #castironcooking #kale #orchard #permaculture #foodforest #backyardgarden #mygarden #mybackyard #growyourownfood #growfoodnotlawns #freefood instafood #fruittree #organicfood #organiclife #urbanhomestead #greenthumb #eathealthy #letfoodbethymedicine #sandiegolife #socal #zone10b #blossomvalleylife #ilovemygarden

Our pomegranate tree is loaded with blooms and developing fruit. I prune it lightly each year, but this year the growth is incredible! They are a lot of work to process, but the arils are so good! We use them fresh on salads, in sauces, and frozen for smoothies. And they are good for you - lower blood pressure, anti-inflammatory, healthy heart function, and improved memory! #pomegranate #pomegranates #fruit #orchard #permaculture #foodforest #backyardgarden #mygarden #mybackyard #growyourownfood #growfoodnotlawns #freefood instafood #fruittree #organicfood #organiclife #urbanhomestead #greenthumb #eathealthy #letfoodbethymedicine #sandiegolife #socal #zone10b #blossomvalleylife #ilovemygarden

Time to rehab another bed today! Pulled up carrots, onions, and potatoes before I added all of the soil amendments including compost, azomite, sea minerals, and worm castings. Put out my saucer of oil and soy sauce for the earwigs and now in a day or two it will be ready for planting next seasons crops. #onions #potatoes #carrots #raisedbeds #raisedbed #orchard #permaculture #foodforest #backyardgarden #mygarden #mybackyard #growyourownfood #growfoodnotlawns #freefood instafood #fruittree #organicfood #organiclife #urbanhomestead #greenthumb #eathealthy #letfoodbethymedicine #sandiegolife #socal #zone10b #blossomvalleylife #ilovemygarden

Planted the sweet corn starts in the bed I prepped with amendments. I use the four sisters approach. Once the corn starts are tall enough I plant them in the bed,and at the base I plant a bean seed. This year I chose Cherokee Trail of Tears black beans. The beans will use the corn as a trellis. I also planted carnival and acorn squash seeds to act as a ground cover. The final seeds were bee balm and sunflowers which attract pollinators. I planted the sunflower seeds on the north end so they would not shade out the bed. And then just for fun I threw in some cucumber plants on the edge. It will be fun watching everything grow! Last year I did this just in garden soil, so this year I am doing a raised bed so I can compare the results. #threesisters #foursisters #corn #beans #squash #beebalm #sunflowers #orchard #permaculture #foodforest #backyardgarden #mygarden #mybackyard #growyourownfood #growfoodnotlawns #freefood instafood #organicfood #organiclife #urbanhomestead #greenthumb #eathealthy #letfoodbethymedicine #sandiegolife #socal #zone10b #blossomvalleylife #ilovemygarden

Hard to keep up with the mulberries! We are picking a bowl full everyday! We’ve found the easiest way is to wear nitrile gloves and lightly touch the branch and the ripe ones fall off!

Artichokes are ready to eat! This plant is growing next to the guava tree in it’s fruit tree guild. We grew an artichoke from seed several years ago. Each year we take the pups that grow on the side and transplant them to a new area. The gophers have eaten a few but we now have an established perennial crop of artichokes. #artichokes #perennials #vegetables #orchard #fruittreeguild #permaculture #foodforest #backyardgarden #mygarden #mybackyard #growyourownfood #growfoodnotlawns #freefood instafood #fruittree #organicfood #organiclife #urbanhomestead #greenthumb #eathealthy #letfoodbethymedicine #sandiegolife #socal #zone10b #blossomvalleylife #ilovemygarden

It’s that time of year when the birds are nesting everywhere! We try give the families some space, but it’s hard with so many nests! This first nest is a blue jay nest. In the bananas. They get quite noisy if we get too close . The next one is a dove nesting on top of our water storage tank. We have a lot of bird varieties living on our land-orioles, finches, hummingbirds, mockingbirds, blue jays, wrens, and black phoebes. In our canyon we have owls, hawks, quail, crows, and road runners. We don’t put out bird feed, they just love our trees! #birdsofinstagram #birdnest #doves #bluejays #orchard #permaculture #foodforest #backyardgarden #mygarden #mybackyard #growyourownfood #growfoodnotlawns #freefood instafood #fruittree #organicfood #organiclife #urbanhomestead #greenthumb #eathealthy #letfoodbethymedicine #sandiegolife #socal #zone10b #blossomvalleylife #ilovemygarden

I have been watching this banana bunch for several months waiting for it to ripen. I think the time has come! Once we harvest it we let it hang from a cord in a cool place as it continues to ripen. We will cut off each hand as it turns color and eat as many bananas as we can. The leftovers get frozen for smoothies and ice cream. The banana plant only produces once so it is chopped down and used as mulch. There are many side shoots that develop so you always have new bananas! #bananas #tropicalfruit #smoothies #icecream #fruit #orchard #permaculture #foodforest #backyardgarden #mygarden #mybackyard #growyourownfood #growfoodnotlawns #freefood #instafood #fruittree #organicfood #organiclife #urbanhomestead #greenthumb #eathealthy #letfoodbethymedicine #sandiegolife #socal #zone10b #blossomvalleylife #ilovemygarden

Making Loquat Jam is one of my favorite things I did with my Mom when I was little. So in the spirit of Mother’s Day I had fun canning today! Loquats are a lot of work to process as they have multiple seeds, but if you set up an assembly line it goes faster. Loquats do not need pectin so the recipe is easy, loquats, sugar, and lemon juice. I added in a bourbon vanilla bean which took the flavor over the top! Now I just want to eat the jam with a spoon! #loquat #jam #canning #vanillabean #happymothersday #fruit #orchard #permaculture #foodforest #backyardgarden #mygarden #mybackyard #growyourownfood #growfoodnotlawns #freefood instafood #fruittree #organicfood #organiclife #urbanhomestead #greenthumb #eathealthy #letfoodbethymedicine #sandiegolife #socal #zone10b #blossomvalleylife #ilovemygarden

Do you ever get behind on harvesting? The tangerine tree should have been picked a month or two ago. We let the fruit hold on the tree until it starts to shrivel. Luckily it is still raining a lot and the fruit is juicy and sweet. Picked a five gallon bucket full today and plan on freezing them for smoothies. You can’t even tell I picked any! The plan is to pick a bucket every day until the tree is empty. Tomorrow’s harvest will be juiced. We also eat several every day and let the dogs have a treat too! #tangerine #smoothies #fruitjuice #fruit #orchard #permaculture #foodforest #backyardgarden #citrus #vitaminc #mygarden #mybackyard #growyourownfood #growfoodnotlawns #freefood instafood #fruittree #organicfood #organiclife #urbanhomestead #greenthumb #eathealthy #letfoodbethymedicine #sandiegolife #socal #zone10b #blossomvalleylife #ilovemygarden

Does anyone else do a crazy concoction for their tomatoes? I use Epsom Salt, egg shells, azomite, coffee grounds, worm castings, and compost. I also add a little baking soda on the surface after planting. Supposedly the baking soda helps lower the soil acidity which makes the tomatoes sweeter. The Epsom salt adds magnesium which is often low in tomatoes. I add it once a month to the soil. Eggshells provide calcium which helps prevent blossom end rot by regulating moisture intake. Azomite increases the minerals available for the plant, and the worm castings, compost, and coffee grounds help add nitrogen. I also take off the lower leaves and plant the tomatoes about 2/3 under the soil which creates a stronger root system. I hope they appreciate all the effort and give me a huge crop this year! #tomatoes #epsomsalt #eggshell #wormcastings #compost #raisedbed #fruit #orchard #permaculture #foodforest #backyardgarden #mygarden #mybackyard #growyourownfood #growfoodnotlawns #freefood instafood #fruittree #organicfood #organiclife #urbanhomestead #greenthumb #eathealthy #letfoodbethymedicine #sandiegolife #socal #zone10b #blossomvalleylife #ilovemygarden

Anyone else have trouble with earwigs? After pulling up the nasturtiums my raised bed was filled with them. Here is my solution! First I amended the soil with compost, worm castings, azomite rock dust, and sea minerals. Then I put oil in a small container and added some soy sauce. I put the container in the middle of the raised garden bed. Swipe to see the bed! This is what it looked like the next morning. I use an old slotted spoon to discard the bugs. Once the container isn’t full of earwigs, I plant out the raised bed with my new plant starts. My dogs will drink this so I have to make sure they can’t get to the dish! #earwigs #raisedbeds #soil #bugs #gardenpests #fruit #orchard #permaculture #foodforest #backyardgarden #mygarden #mybackyard #growyourownfood #growfoodnotlawns #freefood instafood #fruittree #organicfood #organiclife #urbanhomestead #greenthumb #eathealthy #letfoodbethymedicine #sandiegolife #socal #zone10b #blossomvalleylife #ilovemygarden

I love having no idea what to cook for dinner and wandering through the garden and harvesting random vegetables. I chopped these all up, added a few more veggies, eggs from our chickens, almond milk, seasoning, and some cheese, then baked for an hour. The veggie casserole smells great! Next I’ll add some cheese and crispy onions for topping. #homegrown #veggies #vegetables #orchard #permaculture #foodforest #backyardgarden #mygarden #mybackyard #growyourownfood #growfoodnotlawns #freefood instafood #fruittree #organicfood #organiclife #urbanhomestead #greenthumb #eathealthy #letfoodbethymedicine #sandiegolife #socal #zone10b #blossomvalleylife #ilovemygarden

Glad to see the caterpillars! We haven’t had as many monarch butterflies this year maybe because of all of the rain. Glad to see they are still doing their job. This is a yellow variety of milkweed that really looks great in the garden. I let milkweed grow wherever it comes up, and if I get too many I pot them up and give them away. #milkweed #monarchbutterfly #monarch #caterpillar #flowers #blossoms #orchard #permaculture #foodforest #backyardgarden #mygarden #mybackyard #growyourownfood #growfoodnotlawns #freefood instafood #fruittree #organicfood #organiclife #urbanhomestead #greenthumb #eathealthy #letfoodbethymedicine #sandiegolife #socal #zone10b #blossomvalleylife #ilovemygarden

We harvested our first ice cream beans today! They are nice juicy fruit that taste similar to cotton candy. We bought a small tree from Exotica Nursery a few years ago and it is now 25 feet tall! You eat the soft white pulp and discard the hulls and the seeds. They also fix nitrogen from the air into the soil which can help the fertility of other plants nearby. #icecreambean #tropicalfruit #cottoncandy #nitrogenfixer #exoticanursery #fruit #orchard #permaculture #foodforest #backyardgarden #mygarden #mybackyard #growyourownfood #growfoodnotlawns #freefood instafood #fruittree #organicfood #organiclife #urbanhomestead #greenthumb #eathealthy #letfoodbethymedicine #sandiegolife #socal #zone10b #blossomvalleylife #ilovemygarden

Time to thin the Dorsett Golden Apple tree! It is loaded this year. Last year the apples were a little small so I plan on being ruthless with the thinning. Our other apple tree is an Anna which is a good variety to help in pollination. They ripen close to the same time and usually produce twice each year. #appletree #apples #apple #fruit #springblooms #orchard #permaculture #foodforest #backyardgarden #mygarden #mybackyard #growyourownfood #growfoodnotlawns #freefood instafood #fruittree #organicfood #organiclife #urbanhomestead #greenthumb #eathealthy #letfoodbethymedicine #sandiegolife #socal #zone10b #blossomvalleylife #ilovemygarden

I love watching all of the beans growing. It is so cool seeing the seed hull eventually fall off. I planted black beans, red beans, Lima beans, and runner beans, a total of eight varieties.

Anyone else having fun with foxtails? This is our worst year ever with all of the rain! With two large dogs it is nerve wracking to have so many. We have been cutting them down, raking and then throwing them away, but they are everywhere! The brush wacker we bought this year has been a big help but it is still overwhelming! The last vet bill two years ago was $600 for foxtail removal, and then they give us the foxtail in a ziplock bag and tell us to keep our dogs away from them.

The fava beans are finally blooming! They are a little slower this year because of all the gloomy wet weather we had. I cut half of them down around my trees to add nitrogen to the soil.

Added a lemon guava to my fruit tree orchard. It seems to be very happy in the location I chose. Looking forward to picking some delicious fruit later this year! Guavas are high in lycopene so can lower your risk of cancer. They also are fiber rich and full of vitamin C. They have four times the amount of vitamin C as oranges.

The everbearing mulberry tree is loaded with blooms. We had a great crop several times throughout last year. It looks like this year will be even better. I also have three Pakistani mulberry shoots which have just started to leaf out. I plan on putting them in the orchard a little later this year. I am excited to see the larger size fruit. Did you know that if the tree has male and female flowers it produces fruit? Otherwise it is just a heavy pollen producer which has caused some cities to ban them! #mulberry #mulberries #fruit #springblooms #orchard #permaculture #foodforest #backyardgarden #mygarden #mybackyard #growyourownfood #growfoodnotlawns #freefood instafood #fruittree #organicfood #organiclife #urbanhomestead #greenthumb #eathealthy #letfoodbethymedicine #sandiegolife #socal #zone10b #blossomvalleylife #ilovemygarden

Harvested nasturtium leaves and flowers today to dry in my Excalibur. I plan on using some of them for tea, and grinding the rest into a powder to use as a pepper seasoning in cooking. We eat the leaves and flowers raw in salads and on sandwiches, but the plants this year are huge. The nasturtiums come back each fall and die back in the summer, a wonderful perennial for us! Nasturtiums are great for the immune system and helps with the sniffles and allergies, being high in vitamin C and iron! #nasturtium #nasturtiums #dehydrator #excalibur #flowerstagram #flowers #springblooms #orchard #permaculture #foodforest #backyardgarden #mygarden #mybackyard #growyourownfood #growfoodnotlawns #freefood instafood #fruittree #organicfood #organiclife #urbanhomestead #greenthumb #eathealthy #letfoodbethymedicine #sandiegolife #socal #zone10b #blossomvalleylife #ilovemygarden

Here is Bentley as a puppy! He is the best beach and hiking companion. Newfoundland dogs love the water and are such sweet spirited friends! He loves to garden and has learned to only eat produce when it is offered to him. He loves apples and cooked collard greens. His favorite thing is if I accidentally drop an egg from the chickens and he gets to eat it shell and all. I love walking with him as he gently holds my hand in his mouth as we walk. He really is a gentle giant! #newfoundland #nationalpuppyday #newfoundlandpuppy #bestdogever #permaculture #foodforest #backyardgarden #mygarden #mybackyard #growyourownfood #growfoodnotlawns #freefood instafood #organicfood #organiclife #urbanhomestead #greenthumb #eathealthy #letfoodbethymedicine #sandiegolife #socal #zone10b #blossomvalleylife #ilovemygarden

The purple tree collards are going to seed. This plant does not produce a true variety from seeds so I always cut the flowers off. Each year I start a new collard tree from a cutting so I always have new plants growing. The purple tree collard usually lasts 4 or 5 years for me before It either gets too tall, or quits producing. I use the leaves almost every day in soups, stir fry, or salads. #purpletreecollard #bolting #fruit #springblooms #orchard #permaculture #foodforest #backyardgarden #mygarden #mybackyard #growyourownfood #growfoodnotlawns #freefood instafood #fruittree #organicfood #organiclife #urbanhomestead #greenthumb #eathealthy #letfoodbethymedicine #sandiegolife #socal #zone10b #blossomvalleylife #ilovemygarden

This is my current yard project, trimming banana leaves. I left the frost damaged leaves on for a while until the weather warmed up a bit. Now I am trimming the leaves and using them for mulch beneath the trees. Bananas are heavy feeders and require a lot of water so mulch really helps. Did you know that it can take a banana 18 months to produce fruit? Once you harvest bananas you cut the plant down as it only produces one time! #bananas #mulch banana #leaves #fruit #springblooms #orchard #permaculture #foodforest #backyardgarden #mygarden #mybackyard #growyourownfood #growfoodnotlawns #freefood instafood #fruittree #organicfood #organiclife #urbanhomestead #greenthumb #eathealthy #letfoodbethymedicine #sandiegolife #socal #zone10b #blossomvalleylife #ilovemygarden

I harvested some of my turmeric yesterday. Once you plant it you can just replant some each year so you have a never ending harvest. It is great for inflammation and preventing heart disease. I add it to smoothies, soups, and my favorite is curry! #turmeric #antiinflammatory #antioxidants #curry #orchard #permaculture #foodforest #backyardgarden #mygarden #mybackyard #growyourownfood #growfoodnotlawns #freefood instafood #organicfood #organiclife #urbanhomestead #greenthumb #eathealthy #letfoodbethymedicine #sandiegolife #socal #zone10b #blossomvalleylife #ilovemygarden

It really is looking like Spring is coming! The peach tree is blooming! Each day there are a few more blossoms. Last year was our best crop ever, but I did some pruning this year to shorten the branches. The fruit was so heavy we had some limbs break, so I wanted to prevent that by opening up the tree. #peaches #peachblossom #peachtree #stonefruit #fruittree #orchard #permaculture #foodforest #blossoms #backyardgarden #growfoodnotlawns #freefood #mygarden #mybackyard #urbanhomestead #greenthumb #organicfood #organicgarden #growyourfood #growyourownfood #letfoodbethymedicine #sandiegolife #socal #zone10a #blossomvalleylife #ilovemygarden

This is my herb spiral gone crazy! It used to be filled with multiple types of herbs. Now the lavender is over 10 feet wide and has smothered everything else. Today we cut it back much to all of the bees dismay! Luckily our orchard is full of blooms to keep them happy, now I need several loads of dirt and new herbs to fill in. The spiral rock design is buried under soil and needs to be rediscovered!

I really can’t believe the amount of rain we’ve had -15 inches so far this year! So far 4 banana plants have toppled over. We thought about trying to stake them up but since we have over s hundred banana plants it is not really necessary. These plants we chopped up and used as mulch around the others. It helps to enhance the soil fertility and keeps them warm in the winter. #banana #tropical #tropicalplants #foodforest #permaculture #backyardgarden #mygarden #mybackyard #growyourownfood #growfoodnotlawns #freefood #organicgarden #organicfood #eathealthy #urbanfarm #growyourownfood #fruit #growyourownfruit #rainstorm #sandiegolife #socal #zone10a #blossomvalleylife #ilovemygarden

Glad to see new growth on the Hass avocado tree even with the few freezing nights we’ve had. Last year wasn’t a very productive year for this tree. Trying to do research on its habit of being an alternate bearing avocado. One year they have a large crop and the next a small one. It seems the solution is to remove some young fruit one year so more shoots will develop for the next year. That’s the plan for this year! #avocado #avocadotree #hassavocado #orchard #fruittree #backyardgarden #mybackyard #mygarden #greenthumb #permaculture #foodforest #eathealthy #freefood #growfood #growfoodnotlawns #growyourownfood #organicfood #organicgarden #urbanhomestead #letfoodbethymedicine #sandiegolife #socal #zone10a #blossomvalleylife #ilovemygarden

The rain has finally stopped and we had a nice clear crisp day! The Anna apple tree never lost its leaves this year and it is already in bloom. This variety works well with a minimum of low chill days and produces a nice size crop each year. I had planned on pruning it after the leaves dropped but I guess that will have to wait for next year! #apples #appletree #appleblossom #fruit #fruittree #freefood #growfood #growyourownfood #eathealthy #growfoodnotlawns #organic #organiclife #organicfood #backyardgarden #mygarden #mybackyard #epicgardening #instagarden #urbanhomestead #permaculture #foodforest #greenthumb #orchard #sandiegolife #socal #zone10a #blossomvalleylife #ilovemygarden

A few last chayotes hanging in there! Time to do more winter cleanup in between rain storms! The chayote squash was done after giving us hundreds of squash. I trimmed it back to about two feet tall and I’ll see if it comes back next year. It was over 30 feet long trellised on the fence this year, and has lasted two seasons. I always plant a back up for the next year just in case. If this one grows again I pull out the new one because one vine is enough! #redundancy #chayote #squash #gardenlife #backyardgarden #mybackyard #mygarden #freefood #growyourownfood #growfood #growveggies #eathealthy #organic #organicgarden #organicfood #epicgardening #growfoodnotlawns #urbanhomestead #permaculture #foodforest #greenthumb #sandiegolife #socal #zone10a #blossomvalleylife #ilovemygarden

The sun came out for a while today and the bees were so happy to visit the rosemary bush. We had three inches of rain yesterday which is a lot for Southern California. Another major storm is arriving tomorrow that is supposed to be bigger. Can’t wait for it to dry out a little so I can garden. Tomorrow I’ll have to be content with planting seeds for under the grow light. I can’t imagine living in a climate where you can’t garden year round! #sunnyday #rosemary #purpleflowers #bees #rainyday #backyardgarden #mygarden #mybackyard #epicgardening #organicgarden #growfoodnotlawns #eathealthy #growyourfood #growyourownfood #permaculture #foodforest #urbanhomestead #greenthumb #organic #herbs #letfoodbethymedicine #socal #sandiegolife #zone10a #blossomvalleylife #ilovemygarden

While most of the country is having extremely low temps my crazy irises have started blooming. It was a nice 66 degrees yesterday. Usually they don’t bloom until April.

Need to get to work using up the Meyer lemons! This year’s crop is huge and the tree is already blooming for next year. This dwarf variety is about four feet tall and gives us hundreds of lemons each year. Luckily I have a lot of friends who can help eat them! I have made fermented drinks, lemon bars, pies, marmalade, candied lemons, and dehydrated for tea. #meyerlemon #lemon #citrus #fruit #fruittree #backyardgarden #mybackyard #mygarden #foodforest #permaculture #epicgardening #growfoodnotlawns #freefood #growfood #growyourownfood #organicgarden #organicfood #organic #urbanhomestead #greenthumb #eathealthy #sandiegolife #socal #zone10a #blossomvalleylife #ilovemygarden

One thing nice about all of the rain and wind is the macadamia nuts are falling on the ground and easy to harvest. The tree is loaded with them and already starting to bloom for next year’s crop. We let the nuts dry for two days and then remove the green hull. Then another two weeks or so and we crack them. They are a ton of work to process but so good to eat! #macadamia #macadamianuts #nut #nutbutter #nutmilk #backyardgarden #my backyard #mygarden #organicgarden #organicfood #organic #growfoodnotlawns #freefood #urbanhomestead #epicgardening #foodforest #permaculture #eathealthy #greenthumb #orchard #sandiegolife #socal #zone10a #blossomvalleylife #ilovemygarden

The Cherimoya are getting bigger! I am starting to check them to see when they are ready to eat. I am thinking within a month! These are one of my favorite fruit. Our production is lower this year as we were traveling during pollination time. Natural pollinators are not present in California so it has to be done by hand which is a lot of work! #cherimoya #pollination #pollinators #tropicalfruit #fruit #orchard #freefood #organic #organicgarden #organicfood #growfood #growyourownfood #backyardgarden #epicgardening #growfoodnotlawns #greenthumb #foodforest #permaculture #eathealthy #mygarden #mybackyard #instafood #sandiegolife #socal #zone10a #blossomvalleylife #ilovemygarden

The Dancy tangerines are finally starting to ripen! I like to wait until the sweetness is just perfect and then eat them straight from the tree. The only problem is we have hundreds of them as you can see if you swipe. Once I decide I need to empty the tree I have massive peeling sessions and freeze the fruit. They make a perfect addition to my morning smoothie. #tangerines #citrus #fruit #fruits #smoothies #growfood #growyourownfood #eathealthy #organic #organicfood #organiclife #foodforest #permaculture #urbangarden #greenthumb #growfoodnotlawns #farmtotable #freefood #instafood #vitaminc #backyardgarden #epicgardening #mygarden #mybackyard #sandiegolife #socal #zone10a #blossomvalleylife #ilovemygarden

The seedlings under the grow light are ready to be hardened off for planting in the garden. These are mostly greens like kale, bok choy, and cabbage. I am always surprised how fast they grow and how often I plant new things in the garden.

One of my volunteer luffa vines decided to grow throughout a huge lavender bush I have. The freeze damaged the ones growing in the the open but the lavender protected the others. We have a week of rain coming so I harvested the rest. I placed them on an open air metal shelf and once they are dry I will peel them. Then I slice the luffa with a bread knife and use them as sponges throughout the house. I also like to put them in soap molds and pour the soap around them. #luffa #luffasoap #sponges #lavender #growyourown #backyardgarden #epicgardening #growfoodnotlawns #urbanhomestead #organicgardening #organic #greenthumb #mybackyard #mygarden #permaculture #foodforest #vine #growfood #eathealthy #letfoodbethymedicine #sandiegolife #socal #zone10a #blossomvalleylife #ilovemygarden

The Valencia orange tree still has oranges from last year, and next year’s crop is starting to turn color. We have 9 different citrus trees so it is a challenge to use all of the fruit even with giving a lot away! The tree is about 10 feet tall and a great producer. Today I picked another 5 gallon bucket full and made juice. We put the peels in a compost area on the property where we are doing long term composting. The juice was delicious as always! #oranges #citrus #orangejuice #freefood #freshjuice #juice #orchard #backyardgarden #epicgardening #growfoodnotlawns #urbanhomestead #mygarden #mybackyard #greenthumb #organic #organicfood #organicgardening #growfood #growyourownfood #freefood #farmtotable #permaculture #foodforest #sandiegolife #socal #blossomvalleylife #ilovemygarden

If you want a prolific squash plant go with chayote! Picked a wheelbarrow full of chayote squash before the frost and I’m still trying to use them up! I have easily harvested over 150 so far . I made pickles and soup with them last week, so today I shredded several for some recipes. First up was hash browns with onion and garlic - so good! Next I made bread with dried cherries, shredded chayote and carrots, and pecans. Chayote can be used like zucchini in most recipes! #chayote #squash #freefood #growfood #growyourownveggies #growyourownfood #farmtotable #vine #bread #hashbrowns #backyardgarden #mygarden #mybackyard #epicgardening #growfoodnotlawns #urbanhomestead #letfoodbethymedicine #organic #organicgarden #organicfood #instafood #greenthumb #permaculture #foodforest #sandiegolife #socal #zone10a #blossomvalleylife #ilovmygarden

Here is the potato bed all cleaned up! It’s 65 degrees today so I thought it would be a good day to tackle this project. I trimmed the damaged potatoes and weeded, but left some mallow and stinging nettle plants. The garlic still looks great as it doesn’t mind the cold temps. There was a hole in the bed too where some animal was eating the potatoes! We have wire at the bottom and this was a big hole so I’m thinking a raccoon. May have to set out my trail cam!

It froze last night! We rarely get temps below freezing as we have gentle slopes on the property and things are planted densely and mulched. The open bed area is where most of the damage happened. The potatoes were doing so well! Swipe to see what they look like now. The chayote squash vine is gone too. Luckily the tropical trees are planted so densely that only the outside banana leaves were hurt. The banana fruits are still looking good. The plan is to cover a few things tonight. After a couple more days I will cut back all the frost damage and see how everything does. #freezing #freezingcold #growfood #growyourownfood #eathealthy #foodforest #permaculture #urbanhomestead #backyardgarden #growfoodnotlawns #epicgardening #letfoodbethymedicine #mygarden #mybackyard #organic #bananas #organicgardening #organicgarden #greenthumb #sandiegolife #socal #zone10a #blossomvalleylife #ilovemygarden

Finally picked the last of the pomegranates that were at the top of the tree. I love eating them on salads or in fruit smoothies. The color is so rich and beautiful, and they are nice and juicy.

The chayote squash vine is loaded with fruit! I started the vine last year from a 50 cent squash from the store. The vine is 30 feet long and in its second year of production. I get over a 100 squash a year. They take on the taste of whatever you cook with them so are great in dishes like curry. The only drawback is you need to wear gloves or peel them under water as they have a protective residue that can irritate your skin. You can also eat the flowers and the green tendrils on the growing end of the vines. The squash are a great source of fiber, and contain no cholesterol. #chayote #squash #vine #fruit #growfood #growyourownfood #backyardgarden #mybackyard #growfoodnotlawns #letfoodbethymedicine #permaculture #foodforest #organic #organicfood #organicgarden #freefood #greenthumb #urbangarden #eathealthy #mygarden #sandiegolife #socal #zone10a #blossomvalleylife #greenthumb #growyourfood #ilovemygarden

The bees were going crazy for the bananas today! I walked by one of the plants and heard the buzzing sound. Nature is so beautiful! We have so many blooms now, I don’t think we’ll ever have to buy bananas again!

I have been trying to decide what this volunteer is in one of my raised beds. I finally decided it is a luffa. At first I thought it might be Metki Painted Serpent from Baker Creek seeds. I guess time will tell for sure. If it is luffa I plan on eating them while they are small as I’m not sure they’ll fully develop this late in the season. #blossom #freefood #vines #luffa #growfood #growyourownfood #vegetables #farmtotable #food forest #permaculture #backyardgarden #growfoodnotlawns #mybackyard #letfoodbethymedicine #homegrown #organic #organicfood #organicgarden #greenthumb #urbanfarm #sandiegolife #socal #zone10a #blossomvalleylife #ilovemygarden

Harvested so many butternut squash from a single vine. Decided to make soup with squash, onions, leeks, hot peppers, and garlic all grown in my garden! Just had to add some coconut milk and spices. Once it was hot I used the immersion blender and topped the creamy soup with pumpkin seeds and Asiago cheese! #butternutsquash #squash #instapot #homegrown #growfood #growyourownfood #growfoodnotlawns #backyardgarden #mybackyard #letfoodbethymedicine #homemadesoup #freefood #urbanfarm #farmtotable #wintersquash #greenthumb #eathealthy #permaculture #harvest #harvesttime #foodforest # sandiegolife #socal #zone10a #blossomvalleylife #ilovemygarden
