This garden was designed to incorporate different functional areas into the garden and still terrace the garden to deal with the hill so that it remains open and useful. The fence planters are for small herbs and the larger veggie planters are for growing seasonal veggies. The garden will fill in over time and feel more green as the plants grow. #bethgrowsgreen #oaklanddesigner #modernorganic #urbangarden #moderngarden #californiagarden #californiamodern #floatingbench #modernvegetablegarden #concretesteps #woodworking #concretewalls #concretework #modernfence

Peppers! 💚🌶💚 Working with these hot guys today. Making a few more hot pepper pickles and drying the rest for pepper flakes. This is pretty much the end of the hot peppers for the season - cue sadness. You know we like it spicy around here. Time to break out the hand protection and get busy. Hope your day is fiesta worthy! 💚🌶💚 ... #kitchengarden #summerheat #raisedbeds #raisedbedgarden #hotpeppers #fiestaparty #preserving . . . . #urbangarden #urbanorganicgardener #urbangardenersrepublic #sowtrueseed #thehappygardeninglife #eatseasonal #greenliving #growfood #organicgarden #gardentotable #hortas_jardins #lovegardeners #tractorsupply #gardenlife #californiagarden #vegetablegarden #potager #gardenharvest #redandgreen

Anticipation and fingers crossed 🤞 . I’ve had this little Meyer Lemon tree in a large pot for several years and it has always flowered but I was never lucky enough to have a fruit grow. I moved it into my kitchen garden this spring and it’s much happier. Location is everything . 🍋 .

Summer meets winter. The Malabar spinach seeded in late Spring are still growing SLOWLY but at least they’re climbing the trellis. Can’t really tell you what brassicas are planted here because I dropped the entire tray of the homegrown starts and they got mixed up and all look alike 🤔...what I do know is that they’re a mix of broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage. I probably planted them too closely but I figured there’s always a few that may not make it so I’ll thin them out later...survival of the fittest! • • • #nofilter #malabarspinach #brassicas #growsomethinggreen #homegrown #growyourown #organicgardening #gardening #garden #vegetablegarden #raisedbeds #raisedbedgarden #summergarden #fallgarden #wintergarden #backyardgarden #homegarden #urbanorganicgardener #urbangarden #suburbangarden #epicgardening #lovegardeners #getgrowing #zone9 #zone9b #californiagarden

Happy autumnal equinox and first day of fall ! It’s been a hectic month with barely anytime for gardening. That didn’t stop me from taking a basket to harvest my share of Chinese jujubes that are draping over my fence from the neighbors tree. My old neighbor who planted and loved this tree sold the house late last year. The new people seem to have no clue what to do with this. In the mean there is me and the squirrels happily munching on our share 😁 😜 #gardening #garden #urbanorganicgardener #californiagarden #chinesejujube #jujubes #fruits #backyard #autumn #fallequinox

This is our southernmost section of our property. It's a little too far away to conveniently water with a hose, so I have found some very drought tolerant plants that are thriving! They include, salvia, sweet Alyssum, borage, and California poppies. They all have a heavy layer of wood chips. Best of all, all these plants cost under 10$. The salvia were all propogated from a single plant in the backyard, sweet Alyssum and borage seeds were purchased from @bakercreekseeds , and the poppies are natives that just showed up! A big improvement from the poky thistles that used to dominate this area. The bees go nuts here! #permaculture #permaculturegarden #plantsforbees #savethebees #plantsforpollinators #nopesticides #noherbicides #nongmo #foodforest #backtoedengarden #growfoodnotlawns #woodchipgarden #salvia #sweetalyssum #californiapoppies #droughttolerantplants #petaluma #sonomacounty #californiagarden #zone9b

Do you ever think that your weekends aren’t glamorous enough? You could have mine! If you don’t follow all of my gardening antics on Snapchat here is what you’re missing out on 🤣 Just found a TON of grubs in my garden. (I had to ask my neighbor over the fence what they were😳) and I just don’t have the heart to kill them, but I kinda have to because they can apparently be destructive to the garden. Sooooo I’m helping out the food chain a bit and putting them in my bird feeder. Sorry grubs 🤢 #yourewelcome #hopeyourenoteating #gardengirl #grubsgalore #wherespumba #californiagarden

Happy first day of Autumn! Finally stopped procrastinating and got some fall/winter nursery starts into the big bed. Within minutes our cat and pup decided to play chase and trampled all over the new transplants...damn them 🙄...so up went the hoop cover (take that you little fur balls). In this bed are: ‘Morris Heading’ and ‘Carolina’ Collards. The Morris Heading are suppose to be heat/cold tolerant and slow to bolt and the Carolina can also tolerate full sun so these were planted on the sunnier side of the bed (we’re still sunny and in 80-90F’s). Towards the shady side are ‘Blue Knight’ and ‘Lacinato’ kale...I found that kale did well last year in this shady section so I’m giving it another go. Chives and onions are also in the bed...hoping to deter some pests but having the hoop cover on right after transplant definitely helps! • • • #nofilter #brassicas #growsomethinggreen #homegrown #growyourown #organicgardening #gardening #garden #vegetablegarden #raisedbeds #raisedbedgarden #fallgarden #wintergarden #backyardgarden #homegarden #urbanorganicgardener #urbangarden #suburbangarden #epicgardening #lovegardeners #getgrowing #zone9 #zone9b #californiagarden

Cucamelons, strawberries and a late calendula. 💚❤️💚 This is what happens when you do a morning coffee walk through the garden. If you can’t find me today, I am either watching football or the cucamelon plant has finally taken over. Seriously, that plant just won’t quit. I am hoping that is the same situation for my Auburn Tigers.....🧡💙🤞 #kitchengarden #cucamelons #wde #strawberries . . . . #urbangarden #urbanorganicgardener #urbangardenersrepublic #sowtrueseed #thehappygardeninglife #eatseasonal #greenliving #growfood #organicgarden #gardentotable #hortas_jardins #lovegardeners #tractorsupply #gardenlife #growittoknowit #californiagarden #vegetablegarden #cropswapfeatured #hydrovegan #gardenharvest #growvegetables #citygarden

This is a Passion flower. One of my favorite flowers esthetically because it reminds me of something out of a Dr. Seuss book. For a little bit over a year now, I have been working on a butterfly garden in my front yard. Last year I added this Passion flower vine, and this year my garden has been full of Gulf Fritillary butterflies. Most butterflies have a host plant. That is a plant where they lay their eggs. The butterfly chooses this plant because it is the only plant the caterpillar of that butterfly can eat. Passion flower vine is the host plant to Gulf Fritillary. If you swipe through the pictures you can see the flower and the butterfly. Gulf Fritillary have wings that are a little bit longer and narrower than most butterflies, and they often get confused with monarchs for their color. If you have a yard and are interested in making a butterfly garden it may be easier than you think. Simply look up species of butterflies in your area, Google search their host plants, and start filling your garden up with these plants little by little.

This ought to take care of the pill bug problem I’ve been having. Tomorrow I will be figuring out the neem oil thing so I can take care of the white flies. I really don’t like using ANY pest control in my garden, even if it’s all natural organic pesticides because I feel that they hinder the natural order of things.

So much beauty in this frame I can’t stand it. Look at that Culibra that thinks it’s an octopus. And that giant echeveria on top. It’s so massive it wouldn’t fit in the frame. And to think that when I brought it home in January it was the size of the Imbricata pictured here. 🌿 Hope you all have a wonderful Friday.

The @vegepod progress —seeds were sown about 3 weeks ago. I like to sow late summer/early fall seeds densely in the pods for maximum yield but most plants can take 60-100 days before they’re ready to harvest...except for the forever reliable radishes. • • • #nofilter #vegepod #containergarden #selfwatering #growsomethinggreen #homegrown #growyourown #organicgardening #gardening #garden #vegetablegarden #raisedbeds #raisedbedgarden #summergarden #backyardgarden #homegarden #urbanorganicgardener #urbangarden #suburbangarden #epicgardening #lovegardeners #getgrowing #zone9 #zone9b #californiagarden

Loving the cooler weather.

✨🌚✨ . Ahhh BLACK BEAUTY, you are as delicious as you are beautiful. . Like I said recently about the Cucamelon a few posts back, I half expected these to be sorta “meh” and more of a novelty veggie for cool IG photos. I am so happy to report that these exceeded all expectations and just may be the perfect tomato! Sweet and rich with low acidity, meaty flesh that is never mealy, and no issues with catfacing or cracking. Thank you for making these incredible varieties available to us home gardeners @wildboarfarms ! . . . #blackbeautytomatoes #heirloomtomatoes #wildboarfarms #grownfromseed #growyourown #showusyourtomatoes #eattherainbow #heirloomtomatoes #organicheirloomtomatoes #organictomatoes #showusyourtomatoes #thehappygardeninglife #sustainablesprout #wildboarfarms #igrewthat #homegrowntomatoes #tomatogram #groworganic #eattherainbow #backyardveggiegarden #familygarden #kitchengarden #potager #gyo #growyourown #gardenerfever #urbanorganicgardener #forageandharvest #gardenactivist #harvest #todaysharvest #todayshaul #foodisart #californiagarden #placergrown
