Morning chores all the sweeter 🐣 Also, Luffa is amazing! They are heavy gourds (letting mine grow huge and dry for sponges) that need plenty of room and support. Months of flowering late into summer which is good news for the worker bees out scrounging for food this time of year. 🐝 They're in the flowers as soon as it's light outside and all through the day. It's been resistant to the many plagues my gardens have faced this year too. I'll be saving seeds for the swap! . . . #babychicks #mamahen #backyardchickens #circlegarden #luffagourd #growyourown #luffa #organicgardening #farmher #nature #farmlife #homesteading #dirtykneesfarm

Luffa update: Good God Mon! (in my best Grim voice) . I dont know how big they get or when to harvest, but the fence was sagging. I lift heavy things and weights for fun and my arm was shaking trying to get these 3 in a damn photo. Speaking of... I was loading something heavy in my cart today (ugggh trips to town) and dude runs over to me, "Let me get that!" *gives him evil eye* "Let me hold your cart while you get that!" *Eviler Eye* I know I know you're gonna say he's just trying to be nice... but it's a peeve because it happens every freaking time I shop. Look at my arms dude. Go help a little guy, or the elderly. . . . #gardener #girlswholift #homesteading #luffagourd #circlegarden #growyourown #womenfarmers #imfiesty #dirtykneesfarm

The circle garden is poppin'~ round two. Early greens have taken their bow and the last of the carrots are full sized ready for picking. I carefully planted successive crops between the rows of former residents to cut down on time - basil tucked in where radish grew now have full leaves. Swiss chard showing colorful stalks where the failed broccoli grew. Taking my chances on squash again where radish was harvested. Kale took the place of a bountiful beets. Cucumbers are climbing the fence and flowering where rain clobbered peas had to be pulled. Volunteer sunflowers tower over my efforts. First time luffa crop just might fight the cucumbers for fence space. My first try at black beans straight down the middle. Some wins, some fails, but it all comes down to having faith and trying again either way. . . . #gardener #marketgarden #CSAgarden #farmher #organicgardening #alwaystryagain #circlegarden #homesteading #virginiagrown #womenfarmers #goodgrowshere #dirtykneesfarm

Great things start small. From nothing to something. (creating) The circle herb/flower/veg garden 2017. It used to be a bare, sandy, weed(couch grass)infested patch of land. Covered for a while to kill weeds and the rest dug out manually. SWIPE LEFT to see progress The usual herbs like lavender, thyme, rosemary, oregano, sage, chamomile, chives, parsley and mint were grown. Flowers included marigolds, poppies, chamomile, lavender, borage, cosmos which were great for the insects, bees and other wildlife in general. A few vegetables/greens grown were lettuce, chard, and runner beans which tbh were not the most exciting of things for me to grow and eat, but nevertheless. It was beautiful, and served good purpose. That's what matters. Paths were dug out for beds to be created, also mulched with straw and then woodchip to prevent weeds. Beds needed a lot of irrigation, compost and mulching in most areas due to the really sandy soil but also luckily most of what we planted here, especially the herbs and flowers were well able tolerate dry sandy soils and drought conditions. It was quite productive and fairly easy to manage. What else? It was beautiful, it was circular, diverse, quite therapeutic and enclosed to work in compared to open straight lines. Would it be commercially functional? Not sure, unless you had a couple of circles and many hands lol and it were in more of a permaculture setting. I'm quite biased towards the circle or a few little gardens/enclosed spaces for different things rather than one open field. No to monoculture though. We ought to try as much as possible to imitate nature. For a Next time herb garden which I don't know when that would be, I would put in loads of ginger and turmeric- lovely flower.. And plant, loads of African basil,, aloe Vera, lemongrass, garlic, efo tete(amaranth greens) and even bitterleaf.. Etc what else? We will see. Im still looking out for what tropical pure flowers and plants are good for insects and wildlife in general. #thingsineverposted #circlegarden #valeheadfarm #herbflowergarden #medicinalgarden #gardening #farming #agriculture #permaculture #biodynamics #growyourownfood #biodiversity #nigeria #stewardofthearth

The peas that said nope. Well over a foot of rain has fallen in May, breaking records actually!☔ Half the peas got yellow and buggy so off they go to compost far away. When (if😂) we dry out around here I'll put cucumber seeds around. Loofah is already getting its start where one pea variety never germinated. Volunteer sunflowers in the #circlegarden too, see 'em? . . . #gardener #growfood #organicgardening #homesteading #farmher #virginiafarm #getoutside #womenwhofarm #farmtotable #nature #dirtykneesfarm
