The strawberries are done for the season, so Penny and Mabel are now cleaning up the fallen servicberries, and soon the mulberries will be ripe 🙄 #smorgasbordintheyard

Have you ever wondered if the #plants or animals might have #prayedforrain ? I ask myself that question nearly every damn day because that's about how often it rains. I don't think any of us in the US are praying for it, at least. There reaches a point when it interferes with outside plans that it becomes quite annoying. On the plus side if it'll hurry up and pass, the ground will be good and moist for getting my #seedlings #planted , I guess..... .. .. #rainraingoaway come again another day. June showers bring? .. .. #gardenerproblems #gardeningproblems #rain #alldayerrday #thunderstorm #paweather #homestead #homesteader #homesteading #homesteadproblems #homesteadinghick

Cookbook club is back tonight after a few months hiatus, and I've missed it. We always seem to go back to @doriegreenspan , this time #EverydayDorie. The cauliflower tabbouleh (which is really more of a cauliflower salad with almonds, raisins, chickpeas, and whatever else sounds good, in this case cucumber and red onion) needs about 4 times the herbs it calls for, which makes it an even more perfect summer dish than I expected #gardenerproblems

I have various issues happening with the #plants in different locations. I remember seeing a guide somewhere and though this wasn't it, it's helpful in diagnosing what ails the plants. .. .. #didyouknow urine is a good source of #nitrogen for the #garden. It needs to be diluted 10 to 1 with water or it will kill the plant. #peecycling is a thing. #googleit. .. .. #gardeningtips #gardeningtip #gardens #gardenerproblems #gardener #gardening #gardentips #gardentip #homesteading #homestead #homesteader #sustainable #sustainability #sustainableliving #homesteadinghick

Snack ready snowpeas 🤤 We love the purple varieties because they're much easier to find on the vine 😏 but they don't last long 😋

I'm not exactly sure what this is, but it looks menacing and I don't want it in my raspberries.

Some of my spinach bolted, so I saved what was left to freeze. Not on my to-do list this evening, but you do what you gotta do. #gardenerproblems

I always check the #garden on my #lunchbreak. I'm so proud of the #asparagus , #bananapeppers , and #tomato #plants. They're closer to earning their keep 😏 Now to keep everything out. I had quite a few leaves nibbled off last night. They really got the one #pepperplant and a side of the #tomatoplant. Might be having some #squirrel dumplings and #rabbit stew if they don't stay out of the garden. .. .. #gardenpests #gardener #gardenerproblems #gardening #plantwhatyoueat #allnatural #pesticidefree #gmofree #gardentotable #futurefood #naturalliving #homesteading #sustainability #sustainableliving #sustainable #survivalist #survivalism #survival #homesteadinghick

Sorry for the close-up!!! ~ I wasn't going to post this, but I need advice..... ~ So last night while I was gardening either a little black fly or a gnat bit me right below my eyebrow. (I know everyone calls them something different) That was at 7 p.m. & nothing showed up lastnight, but this little red dot & I went to bed at midnight. Now this is what I wake up to this morning....... All Swollen, red, it's kind of hard to see out of my eye, it doesn't really hurt, but more uncomfortable than anything. ~ So I'm looking for a natural remedy to help this go away. ~ #help #bugbit #bugs #gardenerproblems #naturalremedy #blackfly #gnat #spring

No filter needed for this beauty 😍 Idk what I love most about this #gardenia the look or the smell. It’s so soft and delicate and stunning I’m just obsessed and can’t get over it! Doing some #gardenresearch 🤓 on care tips for this beauty and deciding on whether to risk planting outdoors or not?? 🧐 The tag says it’s hardy zones 7-9, so I’m hoping being 7a is safe 😬 Decisions, decisions! #gardenerproblems #gardenersofinstagram #plantingwoes #flower #beauty #fragrantflowers

So I finally got to the bottom of a big mystery today. Something had been digging in my plant pots. I thought it might be a rat or a mouse, or even the cats next door. My boyfriend even set up cameras to see if we could find out who it was, but no luck. Then I heard a strange noise and came out to find this little guy sitting on the fence. Explains why I found a peanut shell in one of my pots too!

I had a visitor today after the rain. I was in the side yard talking to the asparagus and praising the onion for it's hard work. When I came back, Mr. #Rabbit was on the patio enjoying the seed that the #squirrels dumped out of the #birdfeeder. I told him we can be friends this month but next month we won't be cool. He better stay out of my #garden. .. .. #easterncottontail #cottontail #petercottontail #bunny #sylvilagusfloridanus #gardens #getoffmylawn #gardenpests #gardenerproblems #gardener #gardeningproblems #gardening #homesteadinghick

Raised bed garden is doing much better with the warmer weather now. The plants had a little damage at first when I was hardening them off as seedlings and then it got really cold right after planting. But, they have been resilient and nearly all have bounced back and growing strong. I’ve had some difficulty with the soil too. It’s a little hot, as in I don’t think the soil company let the manure sit long enough before he mixed up the compost and sold it to all us unknowing and trusting buyers. I sent in a sample to be tested so I know where I’m at and then I’ll know what to do for it. I thought a local organic soil company would be the way to go, but now I’m having second thoughts. I’ll figure it out though. #gardenerproblems #southwestgardening #witchesofinstagram #stewardoftheearth #growyourownmedicine #urbangarden #raisedbeds #growyourownfood #greenwitch #gardenwitch #kitchengarden #medicinegarden #soil #gardenglimpse #plants #plantwitch #herbalist #herbalwitch

After a busy weekend and two long days in the garden, I promised myself (and my family 😆) that Id catch up on the housekeeping portion of my duties. 😅 But I’m here creepin on my freshly planted pepper bed instead 🤫 Some people express amazement that I can juggle being a housekeeper, mom and homeschool teacher while keeping up this garden. I’ll never pretend for a second though that that is the reality. It requires a lot of patience sometimes, especially in spring, from my family. There’s a lot of “Again? I just fed you guys dinner last night!” and “I’m sure there’s clean socks in that pile over there”. I love you guys for putting up with me 😘 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦 And for you fellow gardeners who are also juggling motherhood and housekeeping - please tell me you can relate 🙏🏻 . . . #keepinitreal #instareality #sahm #momlife #homeschoolmom #womenwhogrow #womenwhofarm #gardenerproblems #thehappygardeninglife #sustainablesprout #urbanorganicgardener #gardenactivist #rusticarbor #gardenarbor #diyarbor #rusticarch #gardenstructure #woodlandgarden #growyourown #growyourownfood #gyo #gardenview #inmygarden #growagarden #pepperplant #kitchengarden #gardenblog #gardenblogger

*Put your sound up for birds* There was a volunteer lupine in one of my raised garden beds. I thought, "Oh, let her be. The bees like her, she's might fix some nitrogen, and the flowers are pretty." Then I noticed her going limp but in my haste these days passed it off as the weirdly dry weather. Tonight I needed the space in the bed so I went to pull her out I got covered in aphids and honeydew. My leggings were pulsing with aphids. It was gross and fascinating. I thought, "At least it was a host plant for ladybug fodder!" Then I saw this little soldier 🐞 and said, "Yay!" I immediately fretted. "Did I just yard waste all her baby larvae?" 😢. #ladybug #ladybird #ladybugs #ladybirds #aphids #organicgardening #backyardgardening #gardenerproblems #organicgardenerproblems

These tiny little maple trees keep starting themselves amongst my flowers, and with my container veggies! They seem especially fond of the sweet potatos 😊🙌.

Every spring, my amazing wife gets out there on her hands and knees, scraping, digging, and planting. She can't make the whole planet beautiful. But the small part she can reach - that's eye watering.

I'm that weirdo that takes pictures of neighbors' plants when going on walks. I really can't help myself. 😳 But honestly, taking pictures during walks has helped my agoraphobia a lot because I'm so excited to look at and capture nature's beauty! • • • #Agoraphobia #AgoraphobiaRecovery #AnxietyJourney #BeatingAnxiety #BeatingAgoraphobia #Landscape #Landscaping #Xeriscape #DroughtTolerant #Agave #Plants #Gardening #PlantLover #SnappingPics #GardenerProblems #PlantLoverProblems

tonight I worked in my new community garden in the rain. As I was digging, I uncovered several ant nests - ants I have never seen before - tiny yellow ones. They exploded out of the soil and I won’t lie, I was totally grossed out. I killed a bunch of them and I feel guilty about it. I googled them and apparently they’re either citronella ants or yellow meadow ants? Either way, I’ve never seen them before! The sheer quantity was overwhelming. If anyone has any information on these ants, let me know! #gardenerproblems #communitygardening #inbloom

Having a #healthydebate with my Momma as to whether or not to just cook the #squash with the #pickleworms or take the time to remove them. My #argument is that two billion people in more than 80 percent of the countries around the world already regularly eat insects, and we will never taste them. Her argument is that she will KNOW that they are in the prepared dish and that #psychologically we won't be able to get over that fact. So, the question is...should I just leave the #rindworms in or remove them before cooking? #Thoughts ? #gardenersworld #gardenerproblems #agardenerslife #organicgardeningissues

Can anyone tell me what this plant is 💁? It's marked as scarlet kale, but it looks absolutely nothing like the other scarlet kales I have started 😅. It also looks oddly similar to one of my indoor mystery #volunteerplants 😳😊🌿 . . . . . . . . . #plantidentification #whatsthat #imnewtothis #gardenerproblems #growyourown #growyourfood #homestead #backyardfarmer #backyardfarm #growwhatyoueat #realfood #mysteryfood #unknownplant #plants #plantsofig #plantsofinstagram #veggiegarden #veggiepatch #vegetablegardening #gardeningnewbie #microfarm #heirloomseeds #bakercreek

This is probably the biggest garden disaster I've ever experienced. My tomatoes were doing fabulously well, growing with gusto and looking lush, when I noticed some of them were looking funny on the tips. I assumed they'd just dried out a bit from touching the grow light. On closer inspection, I discovered that the newest growth all looked like this, deformed and clubbed; every branch.😩 . Google seems to think it's a reaction to the herbicide 2,4-D, or something similar, likely from the bag of steer manure I picked up at our building center in February in my desperation to get planting, as that was the only thing I'd never used before. Apparently this can be an issue if the cattle had eaten something contaminated with it. So now, all 30 of my heirloom tomato plants appear to be ruined. Devastating. ☠️ . However, while the main growing tips have all died back (the thick yellow parts - swipe to see more), it looks like some of the lower suckers are growing again and may take over. So what do I do? Leave them and hope they'll grow through it? Dig them up and dispose of them and the soil? Would I even want to eat something that comes from these plants? 🍅 . Have you ever seen anything like this? Could it be something else? @charles_dowding posted today that he is dealing with something similar from horse manure. It just shows how careful you have to be in choosing your compost.
