Here are two of my taste testers with a couple of ripe santa rosa plums from the tree we are growing. The plums got their seal of approval. I took a bite and it was sweet. A little tart around the skin but inside was very sweet!

Vitex Agnus-Castus aka Chasteberry is one of my favorite herbal allies. I fell in love with it while I was training to be a midwife and it truly changed my life and the lives of many I met over those years that were struggling with infertility and PCOS. This herb is a true miracle for PCOS and hormone regulation.⁣ ⁣ “Vitex promotes fertility (particularly in cases of established luteal phase defect, or shortened second half of the menstrual cycle, and high levels of the hormone prolactin); in fact, one of the “side effects” of some of the clinical trials that have been done is that women have become pregnant! It has also been used to prevent miscarriage in women who have a history of miscarriage, possibly due to effects on progesterone.”⁣ ⁣ “In one trial, 48 women (ages 23 to 39) who were diagnosed with infertility took vitex once daily for three months. Seven women became pregnant during the trial, and 25 women experienced normalized progesterone levels – which may increase future chances of pregnancy.”⁣ ⁣ “In another study, 40 women with abnormally high prolactin levels were given either 40 mg of Vitex agnus-castus or a pharmaceutical drug. Vitex was as effective as the drug in reducing prolactin levels.” ⁣ ⁣ A true woman’s ally, Vitex is also amazing at addressing the symptoms of PMS and Menopause! “A clinical trial involving sixty postmenopausal teachers between 45 to 60 years old studied the possible benefits of vitex for hot flashes. The participants were treated with vitex or placebo, at 40 drops per day for 8 weeks. The decline in frequency and in the severity of hot flashes in the group taking vitex was significant when compared with placebo, starting on the fourth week of treatment and up until the 8th and last week. The results indicated that vitex could be a great option for postmenopausal women, especially in women who have a contraindication to use of female hormones.”⁣ ⁣ #vitex #herbalallies #medicinalplants #medicinalherb #plantmedicine #planthealer #naturalmedicine #garden #herbgarden #mygarden #californiagarden #growyourownmedicine #gardenlife #gardenlove #plantlove #momlife #midwifery ⁣ ⁣

Weekend garden scene, also known as the calm before the storm, in which we gave Indy a long overdue bath. And by bath, I mean hosing him down and lathering him up right here in the garden because trying to get this 95 lb dog in a bathtub is like trying to wrestle a greased up pig. 🤣🛁🐖

📷 Source: @contrivecreations Thank so much for your image ...................................... Meet the Monroe’s 🧡💙 As you can see even from the same batch the sisters are all very different as they have been kept in different size pots and different light. Auntie is the size of the plant I got at same time as Mum whom I stripped for propagation 😱definitely needs to be moved to a sunnier spot so that it can develop some of the nice colouring like Cousin. These are just a few of my Monroe’s that I have not been able to part with as it’s been such a long journey. They are a reminder that patience pays off👌🏻 (My current story explains the pic) . . . -------------------- #plantsuccie #spreadsucculent #succienature #gardenskype #cactussuccs #gardening #cactus #succulents #succulent #cacti #plantas #urbanjungle #suculentas #succulove #succulentlove #succulentgarden #cactuslover #gardener #instagarden #plantsmakepeoplehappy #houseplantclub #plantstagram #inmygarden

There’s not much going on. I’m just doing maintenance on my awesome worm bin and worms (both gifted by @unclejimswormfarm ). I’m just chopping celery with my awesome Hori Hori Knife ( @barebonesliving ). Yes, I shot a video and will be putting that together soon.

2 varieties of sweet corn, cantaloupe and pole beans in this section - a spin off of a three sisters garden which traditionally uses dry corn and winter squash. Pole beans are just starting to sprout and will ramble up the corn stalks for support. Cantaloupe vines will keep the soil cool in this area. I also planted two varieties of bush beans on the right hand side along the fence. The sunken 5 gallon bucket filled with kitchen scraps is breaking down nicely and will hopefully feed this bed well. Have you grown a Three Sisters Garden before? This is a first for me. Next year I would like to try a more traditional combination but I’m looking forward to seeing how this plays out. . . . #threesisters #threesistersgarden #organicgarden #organicgardening #ingroundgarden #woodlandgarden #californiagarden #cagrown #placergrown #sweetcorn #polebeans #cantaloupe #gardener #greenthumb #raisedbedgarden #gardenblog #gardenblogger #rusticgarden #gardenfence #gardeninspo #gardeninspiration #growagarden #growyourownfood #knowyourfood #backyardgarden

This apple tree hangs over a wall near the gym where I work out! Absolutely full of apples. I’m guessing either Anna apple or Golden Dorsett. Just amazing the amount of fruit a tree can put out! • • • • #fruittree #fruittrees #fruit #californiagarden #socalgarden #backyard #backyardgarden #growfruit #ediblegarden #ediblefruit #fruits #fruitslover #ilovefruit #fruittreeseverywhere #tree #apple #apples #appletree #annaapple #goldendorsett #loadedfruittree #amazing #abundance #california #socal #sanfernandovalley

This fun starfish loaf of a cactus came home with me 2 weeks ago as seen in the 3rd photo. Now 2 weeks later she's so happy with her new pot and some love that she's busy making flower buds for me! Can't wait to see these blooms of gratitude 💕🌵

Our passion fruit vine is going bonkers and grabbing onto the trees, and stretching into the abandoned lot next door so I hopped up on the wall with some plant tape and got to work! We can’t reach it through the front of the beds because the corn decided to grow 7’ tall which is great, but also DERRR Amy and Kristian, next time don’t plant corn in the front of your beds. Live and learn!! . And a huge THANK YOU to everyone who weighed in on my sunflower dilemma yesterday!! I’ve been coming on IG just once a day in the morning to post and reply to comments because I read Cal Newport’s “Digital Minimalism” book and am trying to cut way down on my social media use and limit it to once a day for a few mins. I’ll let you know what happens with my unicorn sunflower and if she gets her 15 minutes of fame! 🤣

First garden pick of the year! What’s in your first big harvest? I’m counting on this one to tide me over for a while. Why? Well, in the wise words of Mandy Patinkin in The Princess Bride, Lemme explain...No, there is too much. Lemme sum up: Freak rainy spell, followed by freak heat wave = every gardener’s favorite, powdery mildew. Add in some pests that went unnoticed while we were on vacation and you’ll find me resowing spinach and radishes a little earlier than planned and my succession snap peas are toast. My cucumber is also sad. But there’s a lot more zukes and beans comin, and I spy some tomatoes forming!

Hibiscus slowly unfurling her delicate petals as the morning dawns. I have noticed the flower closes at dusk when sunlight retreats and opens again with the sun’s warmth in the morning. I fell in love with hibiscus when I first visited the island of Maui. These flowers were blooming vibrantly in different colors in every nook and corner and set against the lush green landscape of the rainforest, it’s imagery was striking. #backyardgarden #californiagarden #hibiscus #maui

Hello pumpkins 🎃! Pumpkins are beginning to sprout up rapidly in the garden! In case you haven't been keeping up, one of my biggest goals for my garden this year is to finally grow some pumpkins. So far, the pumpkin growing journey is going well! Not too much to report on aside from the fact that my pumpkin seeds seem to have germinated delightfully quick and now appear to be very healthy and thriving! Surprisingly, I think the major heat wave we had did them some good. #growyourownfood #homegrownfood #growwhatyoueat #backyardgardening #garden #grow #raisedbed #growyourown #plants #pumpkinplant #culinarygarden #ediblegarden #gardenlife #organicgardening #pumpkin #gardentotable #inmygarden #tomatoplant #sustainablesprout #californiagarden #harvest #raisedbeds #veggiegarden #vegetablegarden #homegrown

Zinnias are starting to open up! They were strategically planted in this location for a few purposes: 1- to add color to garden, 2- to attract pollinators and 3- to provide a little shade to the soil and surrounding plants (chives and cucumbers) because they grow to about 4 ft tall. The zinnia seeds were direct sowed (heavy handed) 8 weeks ago and gets about 8-9 hours of direct sun so you can see they are a fabulous choice for a fast growing heat tolerant flower. Bonus...they’re a cut and come again variety so they’ll be blooming throughout the summer as well! Seeds are from @reneesgardenseeds (swipe to last picture for varieties). . About the trellis: cucumbers (and winter squash in the background) are growing on the Titan Pea Tunnel Trellis purchased from @gardeners.

This is the Beauty plum graft on the multi-grafted plum tree. It’s pretty loaded even after I have aggressively thinned. Need to be careful for broken branches as the plums are sizing up and starting to ripen. • • • • #californiagarden #growfruit #organicgarden #organicfruit #stonefruit #socalgarden #socalgardener #gardening #backyard #backyardgarden #growfood #growwhatyoueat #eatwhatyougrow #growyourown #growyourownfruit #growfoodnotlawns #ediblegarden #ediblefruit #fruit #fruittree #fruittrees #plums #plumtrees #plum #beautyplum #gardentotable #lovefruit

First of the eggplants fruiting up...these ones here are Listada de Gandia and were planted first of the four varieties growing in the garden. Since the redwood tree removal, this bed now gets a lot of direct sun...close to 10 hours! I didn’t take that into consideration with my watering schedule or adding more mulch to retain moisture so a lot of their flowers started dropping but once I made the changes, they’ve made a comeback. So that’s something to think about if you see a lot of your flowers dropping or the leaves looking a little stressed. . . #nofilter #eggplant #listadadegandia #growsomethinggreen #ediblegarden #homegrown #growyourown #gardening #garden #gardentotable #vegetablegarden #summergarden #raisedbeds #raisedbedgarden #backyardgarden #homegarden #urbangarden #urbanorganicgardener #suburbangarden #epicgardening #lovegardeners #getgrowing #zone9 #zone9b #californiagarden #sacramentogardening

Sunflowers are slowly but surely coming along!🌻⁣ ⁣ We planted seeds in early spring and they were all eaten up! I then planted some inside and kept them there until they were big enough to hold their own. Most of them made the transition- except one that succumbed to a tiny human foot. Looking forward to them gracing us with their sunshine!⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #frontyardgarden #gardentotable #growwhatyoueat #ediblegarden #harvest #growyourownfood #urbangardening #sunflowers #gardeninglife #organicgarden #organicgardening #organicallygrown #ediblelandscaping #gardeningwithkids #kitchengarden #vegetablegarden #altadena #thehappygardeninglife #instagardeners #instagarden #urbanorganicgardener #sustainablesprout #californiagarden #gardenlife #growyourownveggies #growyourfood #ilovegardending #inmygarden

Happy #flowerfriday 🌼 This flower bed was created from a chest that used to be in our living room at our old place (swipe ➡️). We had been using it outside on our patio and the top had gotten warped by rain, so I decided to repurpose it for a fun flower bed. I'm thrilled with how it turned out! How do you repurpose things in your garden?

My First Split 🐝 Our hive has been going strong and I felt like it was time to get working on number 2. From the established hive I pulled 1 frame of honey and 3 frames filled with brood at various stages from egg to larvae to capped and ready to emerge. These 4 plus an empty frame for room to grow were installed in the small box (Nuc) on the left. If all goes as planned the worker bees will quickly sense the absence of a queen and raise up a queen from the eggs in about two weeks. Fingers crossed and hoping it works. New to this but getting some good assistance from great beekeepers 🙏
