Our wild food garden is perfectly artistic to me. It’s about to be seriously tamed but for now I’ll appreciate those colours, form & texture oh and taste- it’s still giving me produce 🙏 Mum what are they? Weeds. mum what’s that ?weeds. Mum and what’s that? We-no that’s lettuce 🍀✔️ oh ands lets do a big ✔️ for watering the garden too #rainclouds #foodgarden #grateful #countyourblessings #somethingsgottagive #thegoodlife #hecticlife #weedsyouwin #dailyinstapicslostthisweek #seasonsoflife 💧The Nest food garden is currently pumping out (all of its own accord) rainbow chard, spinach, asparagus, spring onions, roquette, lettuces of all sorts, horseradish, parsley and making its way up snow peas, Jerusalem artichokes, celery. Summer vege seedlings await planting... #tumbarumba #backyardproduce #coldclimategardening #cafegarden

Did a little more work today packing in the tiny greenhouse, which we are hoping will serve as a big cold frame... It’s packed to the frames with babies but a lot of this was an oh-what-the-heck effort to see if the buckets will yield anything. Over the coming weeks we’ll be trying to beef up the insulation and will probably be working with light reflection. Stay tuned, and as always - throw some tips at us!. . . . . #urbanfarm #phillyfarm #greenhouse #tinygreenhouse #coldclimategardening #coldframes #coldframegardening #bucketgarden #bucketfarm #growwhatyoueat #growwhatyoulove #youarewhatyoueat #veggies #growyourownveg

Such an awkward little plant, but so easy to grow and use. It’s a relation of cabbage and such, the difference is the energy storage is in it’s swollen stem, rather than a bulb or crown. (This isn’t mine, it’s from a friends patch) #kohlrabi #fallproduce #coldclimategardening #getinmybelly

2 gardens= 2 x the mess to clean up before winter. There is so much laying in a heap of death following the several heavy frosts we've been slammed with. Hard to know where to begin, and definitely difficult to get motivated to take care of it all when the weather is so cold and soggy. Ugh. I'm putting in an order for some sunshine with a side of motivation STAT. In the meantime, I will be indoors putting on my winter weight. 🍵🍞🍰 #gardencleanup #fallgarden #motivationlacking #ihatethecoldweather #somuchtodo #solittletime #fallishere 🍁🍂🍃 #thehomestead #lifeinthewoods #homesteading #minnesota #upnorth #upnorthliving #homesteadlife #coldclimategardening #modernhomesteader #homesteadersofinstagram #permaculturegarden #hugelkultur

Fall is the time to... keep planting!!! Last year we were eating fresh greens until mid-December, right here in Sweden. We just cover with #floatingrowcover and our #winterhardy greens ( #mache #springonion #buttercrunch #leeks ) do just fine. In January and February we eat #endive , #sprouts and #fermented veggies, by March we have fresh greens again 🌿. The fencing is to keep ducks out as they get more keen on veggies as the slugs start going under cover. #kitchengarden #veggiegarden #plantlyfe #wintergarden #coldclimategardening #wintergreen

Finally getting some garlic planted today. I have 300+ cloves going in and we had a small break from the cold rainy weather to get about halfway done. We are descending rather quickly into winter it seems with temps in the 20s at night this weekend, and 40s during the day with rain/snow. Lots of cleanup and prep work to do in the garden before it is covered for the season. The cold always comes too fast 😣 #garlicplanting #fallinthegarden #gardening #permaculture #permaculturegarden #growstuff #growyourownfood #organicgardening #coldclimategardening #pesticidefree #thehomestead #sustainableliving #smallfarm #homesteading #thehomestead #upnorthliving #myminnesota #minnesotagrown #organicgrown

All the tomatoes! 🍅 We finished harvesting the rest of the tomatoes tonight. I’ve held out as long as I could. But with freezing rain/fog/sleet and below freezing temps coming up I couldn’t risk it any longer. Gardening in our area has its challenges. A growing season of 90-100days (if your lucky) can make gardening here very frustrating. But oh so rewarding!! . Here’s to hoping most of these beauties will ripen and fingers crossed🤞🏻I will have a greenhouse to help extend the next growing season. . #tomatoes #organic tomatoes #organicgardening #coldclimategardening #homesteadersofinstagram #gardenersofinstagram #homestead #greentomatoes #purpletomatoes #heirloomtomatoes #eattherainbow #eatyourcolors #growyourown #growyourownfood #marketgarden

After years (and years) of trying I have finally grown a melon. A MELON! . I almost don't care that my children slashed it with a spade and I had to bring it inside prematurely... It is still so beautiful. . And for those who are curious this a Faerie hybrid (I've also got two sugar babies still in the garden) and I'm growing in Zone 5b. . . . #coldclimate #gardener #permaculture #ediblelandscaping #growyourown #crazyplantlady #coldclimategardening #melon #latesummer #yellow #sayyellowtomylittlefriend
