#foodnotlawns cut the sod out:) This garden was made with local lumber and 5 blend #compost was made at my rural nursery. We can rapidly install a garden this size in 1 day with 3 people:) These 12 raised beds can meet all the annual veggie or carb needs of one individual. 1 bed for each month of the year in four seasonal sections. #tinyhouse #homestead #growyourown #growyourownfood #foodfreedom #gardentotable #fatmtotable #kitchengarden #permaculture #localfood #minifarm #organic #gardening

Chopping and tucking away *more* hot peppers ๐ŸŒถ This has definitely been the year of the pepper - they have gone bonkers!! This is an heirloom variety called Rooster Spur. Our Hungarians are not ready yet but will be probably within the next week, so we'll have those, too. . When you think about it, it's not that far off from what else went bonkers this year: the herbs. Hot peppers are very medicinal in proper amounts, both internally and externally. Someone up there knew we would need lots of medicine this winter ๐Ÿ˜‰ which kind of has me wondering what is heading our way.. . But! I have never had this many hot peppers before, and these are definitely a lot hotter than what I can sneak past the kids ๐Ÿ’ฃ๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅI am going to have to start looking for ideas of what to do with them.. in the meantime, I am chopping and freezing. Pepper jelly has been on my mind (although I have never made it before), so that is a possibility. . How do YOU like to use hot peppers?

Iโ€™d hoped to make a different video today, but my timing didnโ€™t cooperate with the location of the sun. Here instead is a glimpse of one of my favorite garden fruit/medicine trees, Asimina triloba (aka pawpaw.) If you know the fruit, youโ€™re likely a fan. If you donโ€™t, youโ€™re in for a treat when you finally try it! Even when fully mature this pyramidal tree doesnโ€™t take up too much precious garden space or cast much shade over neighboring plants. And its long leaves turn the best clear gold in fall. If you have or are thinking of growing a medicinal food forest, I highly recommend this. #gardenmedicine #foodnotlawns #pawpaw . . #asiminatriloba #biophilia #herbalmedicine #radgirlslife #herbalist #herbalistshavefriendswhereverwego #backyard #permaculture #foodforest #portlandflora #portlandgardens #treemedicine #shinrinyoku #forestbathing #naturecures #naturopath #naturopathicrevolution #senseofwonder #vitaminN #walkingwithorna #plantgeek #herbnerd

My front yard rose bush is knocking it out of the park again. One of my goals for tomorrow is to try to take the baby out into the garden. With high temps in the upper 60s/low 70s, we shouldnโ€™t get too sweaty and maybe the mosquitos will leave us alone. . . . #vegetablegarden #urbangarden #urbangardenersrepublic #growfoodnotlawns #bungalowpotager #bungalowhomestead #potager #jardin #horta #huerto #victorygarden #gardenactivist #iamcountryside #lifeouthere #foodnotlawns #kitchengarden #iamamodernfarmer #heirloomgardener #gardentotable #zone8a #backyardgardening #gardenatl #atlantagardener #urbanhomesteadatl #aglanta

Thanks to @alicelouisewaters , the @edibleschoolyard program she founded to transform childrenโ€™s relationship with food is alive and well throughout this country. These children came to their school garden on a Sunday with enthusiasm and gusto to harvest 4 varieties of beans and get the gardens planted with fall vegetables. Needless to say, plant destruction was definitely part of the fun. ๐Ÿ˜‚ 3 year old compost compactor video included. ๐Ÿ˜‰ #realschoolfood #edibleschoolyard #alicewaters #nutritiousneighborhoods #startthemyoung #greenhorns

Ernesto will begin with a historical introduction to Meso-American instrument-making. Myths and legends within ancient mesoamerican culture, music, and cosmology will be shared to give awareness on the deep connections that these instruments had on our indigenous ancestors.

Teaching our youngest today how to use the dehydrator. It's super easy! (Plus, the extra warmth in the kitchen is helpful for the sweet potatoes that we brought in last week.) Today, we are drying red raspberry leaves for tea in the winter ๐ŸŒฟ Red raspberry leaf is considered to be a great herb for women. Not only is it rich in nutrients, but it also helps support uterine health, among other things. Here's an article on its uses and benefits ---> https://wellnessmama.com/5107/raspberry-leaf/

A huge shout out to @gardenerthevegetable for the wonderful seeds! I can't wait to plant them... Although Brisbane's soggy weather is forcing me to be patient.. Lest they get washed away ๐Ÿ˜… โ˜” ๐ŸŒฅ โ˜” ๐ŸŒฟ ๐ŸŒฑ . Gardening is one of my favourite #selfcare practices. Working with soil seems to ground me. It's also great for building my kids immunity and planting vegetables to eat is much cheaper than buying from the shops! Often tastier too and I know exactly what has gone into getting my food to me. . . . #seeds #plants #vegetables #foodnotlawns #brisbanesmallbusiness #supportsmallbusiness #growfoodathome #debtfreecommunityaustralia #gratitude #reducefoodmiles #beans #pumpkins #thevegetablegardener #eatyourgarden #australiangardening #gardeningaustralia

Prepping the front yard gardens for winter! ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿ’จ Turned the beds, laid layers of compost, and seeded organic hairy vetch as a nitrogen-fixing cover crop. ๐ŸŒธ We left tall, straggly lacinto kale plants for the finches, and a few last tomato plants with green fruit (must eat every last one)! ๐ŸŒฑ๐Ÿ… Still need to winter-prep all the backyard beds. ๐Ÿ’ฉ How do you prep your beds for winter? โ„๏ธ #urbanfarm #organic #vegan #garden #citygarden #veggies #wintercrop #covercrop #foodnotlawns #growyourownfood

Not your typical glamour shot... but this is gold in the making guys. True gold.๐Ÿ’› Vermicomposting (aka composting with worms) creates a nutrient rich product which helps plant grow strong. ๐Ÿ’ช . . I started vermicomposting about a year ago and once you get past the ick factor it is such a lovely and rewarding activity and it doesn't need to cost a lot either! Get an old bin or large Tupperware, some red wigglers worms (I got mine through a Kijiji ad lol) and some soil and voila! you've got yourself a nice vermicomposting setup. Thanks to my wormies I've further reduced my food waste and been able to improve my gardens' soil dramatically. . . Would you consider vermicomposting at home? ๐Ÿ˜ . . . #vermicompost #garden #gardening #mygarden #veggies #vermicomposting #worms #foodwaste #cleanfood #gardenlife #gardentotable #growyourownfood #homegrown #harvest #urbangarden #growfoodnotlawns #goinggreen #homesteading #zerowaste #urbanfarming #foodnotlawns #gardensofinstagram #yycgardens #yycgardening #RenfrewAcres

A bit of an overcast day here today with showers and mild conditions forecast for the next few days, making it a perfect day for transplanting these seedlings into the main growing beds. Cucumbers, rockmelons, watermelons, cucamelons, pumpkins, zucchinis, button squash, tomatoes, beetroot, coriander, jalapeรฑos, fennel, eggplant and capsicum. Crikey, where will they all fit? ๐Ÿ‰๐Ÿฅ’๐Ÿ…๐ŸŒถ๐Ÿ† #seedlings #grownfromseed #growyourownvegies #timetotransplant #fromlittlethingsbigthingsgrow #growitall

๐Ÿƒ SOLscapes has phase 1 of a VERY exciting project starting tomorrow. Hint: We'll be facilitating a gradual transition from #grass to #garden. For SO many reasons, it's time to re-think your lawn. Conventional lawns are ornamental and often underused. We desgin, install and maintain gardens that are functional, diverse and beautiful. They use less water, are easy to maintain, require no chemical input, save energy and money in addition to building healthy soil and plants. Sounds like the perfect space for you and you family to grow into.

I pulled most of my #sweetpotato plants today. Although there were quite a few this big, I wish they were all this size. Next year, Iโ€™m going to stake and prune the vines to only allow one lead. I think thatโ€™s the key to huge tubers. #PlantSomethingEveryDay #growyourownfood #urbangarden #backyardgarden #frontyardgarden #backtoedengarden #woodchips #backtoedenfilm #organic #organicgardening #notill #backyardchickens #chickens #blackfarmers #virginia #foodforest #goodsoil #foodnotlawns #blackmenwithgardens

...this is what happens when you really need a fence, but you really can't afford one & they're all really boring!! ๐Ÿ˜‚ My amazing hubby is great at translating my enthusiastic gesturing into something tangible... he whipped me up a massive planter box (5+ metres long using recycled planks from the old deck we ripped up) and then we attached 3 metal archways ($17 each)๐Ÿ‘Œ all of this took 10 times longer than expected as the kids were 'helping'. ๐Ÿ˜† I can't wait to get it filled with soil and some beautiful climbers planted! (& by 'beautiful climbers' I really mean cucumbers, tomatoes & sugar snap peas ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ…๐Ÿ‘Š) #foodnotlawns

Homegrown/local Sunday morning omelet ๐Ÿณ Our heirloom tomatoes, heirloom peppers, and heirloom kale (dried and crumbled). Local shiitake mushrooms and local eggs. Seasoned with salt, pepper, and garlic. #foodmedicine and delicious. . I have said before how incredibly grateful I am for neighbors and friends who intentionally raise more hens than they need, in order to generate a surplus of eggs for folks like us who do not have hens of our own. You guys are doing a wonderful thing ๐Ÿ’› . A family around the corner from us raises their hens in a free range environment, and they supplement the hens' foraged diet with non-GMO feed. We love seeing the hens out and about, enjoying the grass and sun... they are so happy and healthy, and you can see it in the yolks of their eggs. The difference is like night and day, compared to grocery store eggs! We have been buying our eggs from them for about 2 years now. . This is community. It is human health. It is the reclaiming of life skills. It is the restoration of our local environment... and so many other positive things. If you can't grow your own, support local folks who do #eatinglocalisradical
