I've got a habit of grabbing carrots every time I visit the garden. We have our fill of fresh eating because you know there is no carrot better than the garden carrot. But now it's time to get serious. Carrot cake and bread and muffins. Pickled carrots. Canned and frozen carrots. Looking for new recipes all the time. Have any suggestions? #carrots #colorfulcarrots #gardencarrots #freshharvest #harvestbasket #gardenharvest #inthegarden #garden #thegarden #gardenfresh #organic #gardengoods #freshfromthegarden #eatyourveggies #hugelkultur #permaculture #permaculturegarden #growstuff #growyourownfood #homegrown #permie #coldclimategardening #rainbowoffoods

The first of many blossoms to bloom within Sorensen’s Glasshouse and Gardens. If you think think the blossoms in the midst of Leura mall are something, then you will be in awe of these incredible cherry blossoms nearly 4 times the size (and age) of those. How fortunate we are as Blue Mountains residents to live amongst gardens established by genius gardener Paul Sorensen himself, who called the Blue Mountains home for most his years. #paulsorensen #nearlythere #bluemountains #leuransw #coldclimategardening #sorensensglasshouseandgardens #mtnsmade #singleo #retail #gatherings

Azalea topiary at Bebeah, Mount Wilson, NSW, Australia. Interesting use of Azaleas - timing of pruning is everything too late and there would be no flowers.

Happy Tuesday from FHB and Especially Me! I wonder where our paths will lead us all today? “She ran around the shrubs and paths towards the secret garden.” Excerpt From The Secret Garden Frances Hodgson Burnett This beautiful path is in my @gardenwriters friend’s garden. Isn’t it dreamy? Her blog: www.coldclimategardening.com won a silver award of achievement recently, so if you are up north...check her out! #Repost @kopurdy ・・・ My front walk #inthegardentoday #flowerstagram #instaflower #bloomingtoday #dianthus #Iris #coldclimategardening #upstateny #thesecretgarden #secretgarden #franceshodgsonburnett #blogger #writer #paths #secretgardens #secretgardenstyle #gardening #garden #abitofearth #gardenpath

40 pounds of slicing and pickling cucumbers were pulled today after a week of neglect in the garden. I will be brining some for refrigerator hamburger pickle chips, canning some dill spears, eating the slicers fresh, and giving some away. It's scary to think that we could easily see our first frost in the next week (hopefully we get more time than that) and this could all be over 😟 #cucumbers #gardencukes #pickles #gardenbounty #homesteadlife #gardenfresh #organic #realfood #permaculturegarden #hugelkultur #growyourownfood #organicgardening #coldclimategardening #permaculturegarden #growstuff #growsomethinggreen #backyardgarden #backyardgardening #gardenlove #ilovegardening

My earliest blooming #Colchicum graecum. First described by @karin.persson.967 , this was collected by Antoine Hoog on Mount Vardousia in Greece and introduced in the 1990s. The Pacific Bulb Society says the flowers are faintly tessellated (checkered), but I can't see it. Perhaps mine doesn't get enough sun. Odyssey Bulbs rates it hardy to zone 6, but it's managed to stay alive in my zone 5 climate for 2 years. Amended the soil to be more free draining. #inthegardentoday #flowerstagram #instaflower #bloomingtoday #coldclimategardening #upstateny #colchicumgraecum

I'm fighting a migraine this morning to try and get the rest of the beans canned before it gets too hot again. So far, 24 quarts have been canned with probably at least another 10 to go. From 1 hugel bed that we had already picked 10 pounds from for fresh eating before the big harvest. We will get one more smaller round from this bed before we put it to rest for the season. Next to this bed is another bed of bush beans that are ready for picking as well. Thankfully, all of the beans in the mandala garden were planted 2 weeks later than these so I will get a little break because dang, it is way too hot to be running the canners. An outdoor cooking area is my dream. I suppose I will keep dreaming about it as I sweat to death in my house. How you folks down south do it is beyond me. Can it just be 70 degrees every day, year round? #greenbeans #freshbeans #bushbeans #canningseason #inseason #canningtime #homegrown #permaculturegarden #hugelkultur #permaculture #permie #permaculturedesign #organicgardening #coldclimategardening

Some gardeners say tomatoes are hard to grow, I say they are some of the easiest vegetables to grow. I have been growing them in and out of greenhouse with the same success, without staking, blown down and broken by winds and still producing a lot of large fruit. This year however, I was too busy on early spring and didn't plant any seedlings, so I decided to be tomato free for one summer....but look! There is a bush growing out of my compost trash! Some seed has sprouted, found the way through a crack, and grew into a bush. I guess I'm going to have some tomatoes after all 😂 #growityourself #dyrkselv #northerngardening #norskhage #norskhagetiden

#LadyInBlackGardens A few more flowers from the garden. First frame: Pansies, a personal favorite. Especially these ruffle faced purple ones. Second Frame: Nasturtiums and Lobelias. This is my first year planting my own Nasturtiums and I hadn’t a clue they smelled so damn good! Third Frame: Bachelor Buttons and Baby’s Breath. I will definitely be planting these again 💕 #gardening #garden #alaskangardening #containergardening #flowers #flowergarden #60acresofwhatever #coldclimategardening #Alaska #gardeninginAlaska

One of two flower species that I have been really excited for the first bloom: Hungarian Blue Breadseed Poppy. (I accidentally told some people “Himalayan” 😬) One thing I’ve alway loved since childhood, is seed pods. It started with Pansies (one of my top favorite flowers). I thought it was so cool, and still do, that you could pocket a pod with hundreds of seeds for another season. #LadyInBlackGardens #poppy #poppies #breadseedpoppy #flowers #gardenflowers #flowergarden #AKgardening #coldclimategardening #60acresofwhatever #Alaska

Autumn memories....although it’s been a mild winter so far for us, I’m missing a bit of colour & interest in the garden. Good time to look at structure & plantings for next year. Do you follow any amazing gardens/gardeners?
