Cut red cabbages never get old. My red cabbage from tonight. Wow, I haven’t eaten this juicy cabbage including my own for a long time. This is “Express Red” type. I particularly don’t find it speedy variety, but the disease resistance and taste take the full mark. My son loved it. As a child, I loved eating the densest center part of the cabbages we grew. I gave my son some from the same parts, and he came back for the second one. “Express Red” is keeper until another red cabbage beats it. . . Follow @tristinasmith1288 if you love gardening. . .

Your plants are only as healthy as the soil they’re growing in 🌱I’m in the process of converting a small patch of overgrown garden in our apartment complex into a small herb garden. It’s mostly sand and gravel at the moment so I’m mixing in loads of compost to improve the organic content and health of the soil before I plant anything - hopefully it will save me lots of frustration in the long run!

Red berries. I just put the last ones in my morning smoothie. Red berries grow in almost all circumstances: sun or shade. The only drawback can be the birds, who are also crazy about the berries. By coincidence I discovered that when you let the weeds around the bush rise high until the berries are ripe, even the birds do not find them. When it's time to harvest, cut everything short, use the clippings as mulch under the bush and everyone is happy (except the birds 😁) . . . . #foodforest #inthegarden #abundance #redcurrants #ribesrubrum #berries #summerfruits #harvest #permaculture #workingwithnature #ediblecrops #lavieenrose #mylifeinfrance #kitchengarden #homegrown #permaculturegarden #growfoodnotlawns #backtoedengarden #summerharvest #frontyardgarden #petitjoys #frenchcountryside #eatlocal #locavore #lifeandthyme #thewaywelifeinthecountry #morningslikethese

Oh hello purple podded pea flower 👋🏼 The peas have recovered from their previous ordeal (strong wind, arches and peas don’t mix well). They’re growing back and are just beginning to flower again. Fingers crossed they survive the August winds!!

It’s an enormously exciting day because after weeks of waiting, our oldest child finally emerged from the daily prowl around the tomato plants with the first ripe fruit! Thank goodness for his triumphant howl, or I would have missed the chance to document the first of our toms ever to be produced on the farm. He assures us it was delicious. I remember this from our tiny London garden, my husband and oldest would periodically saunter around the patio stripping our tomato plants clean and so if I ever wanted any to cook with I had to get up very early to snaffle them! 🍅 🍅 🍅 🍅 #garden #gardening #countrygarden #gardens #gardenlife #gardener #gardenlove #gardengirl #gyo #growyourown #growyourownfood #growfood #growfoodnotlawns #kitchengarden #vegetablegarden #vegetablegardening #growvegetables #herbgarden #raisedbed #raisedbeds #vegetablepatch #tomato #tomatoes #cherrytomatoes #cherrytomato #harvest #homegrown #gardeningwithkids

We have wonderful neighbors at the tiny house we rent, and jokingly call our two houses “the commune”! If one household runs out of something, the other can usually help. Some of the commune life activities: babysitting, puppy sitting, borrowing various household items, sharing homemade foods (um lol @sypsarah ’s lemon candy!! With fresh lemons!!), and more! We have an avocado tree behind our place, and they have a guava tree in their yard. They ALSO have these gorgeous hibiscus plants that I always dream about making tea with! 🍵

Back from a weekend in the Rockies and am excited about all the chard. A handful of tomatoes and a lone tomatillo too.

After a lovely bike ride by the bay, belly surfing in the waves until our cheeks were sore both from being reoccurringly slapped by salt water and laughter, barely dodging a thunderstorm while re-racking the bikes (more laughter,) and shucking so! many! dried bean pods with The Pickle I am pleasantly exhausted. While The Hubs read with the kiddos, I grabbed my seeds, my calendar and my favorite gardening books. And I am happy to announce that I finished my fall planting schedule! (plotting it, to come.) A month-by-month calendar, sorted seed packets, and grow lights are ready to go. What’s in store for this fall? Lettuce, lettuce, lettuce, radishes, beets, kohlrabi, cabbage, cauliflower, turnips, kale, brussels sprouts (my first go🤞🏼,) spinach, carrots, onions, collards and mustard greens. Phew. Heading to bed with a full heart and a tired body. What do you plant in your fall garden? #backyardveggies #organicgardener #fallgarden #groworganicfood #threesistersmethod #driedbeansonthevine #urbanpermaculture #greenthumbs #urbangardener #growsalad #farmtotable #farmgirlstrong #farmher #heirloomseeds #eatyogreens #fallveggies #vegetablepatch #foodasmedicine #veggiesrock #growkale #growfoodnotlawns #growwhatyoueat #myheartbeatsforbeets #backyardsaladbar #collardgreens #growsomethingedible #eatingwell #gardeningwithkids #kidseathealthy #plantgraffiti

Let’s all have a moment of silence for my back the next few days... . . Green beans are coming in hard. Swipe to see the small area I covered today. 🙄 Tomorrow I will be picking most of the night to try and catch up. Tuesday I’ll be canning them! . . I love my @therooapron for things like this. I do like to shove it full, and sometimes the opening at the bottom allows produce to slip through. I’ve been toying with the idea of sewing it shut as I don’t use it to dump produce out. Then I could carry around a lot more produce and cause more back pain! ;) . . The roo apron is amazing and very high quality. I love mine. It has pockets at the top which routinely house my phone and pruning shears. . . #greenbeans #growfood #gardening #growyourownfood #growyourown #growfoodnotlawns #organic #harvest2018 #gardeningaddict #homesteading #gardenactivist #selfsufficient

It’s easy to forget where our food comes from when most of our food is packaged and wrapped in barcodes, we can forget that our food grows, develops, lives and comes from the Earth 🌏 Keeping this in mind, it helps us to be more appreciative of our food, and less likely to waste, overeat and to be present while we eat. When you are present and relaxed while eating your body turns on its parasympathetic nervous system aka rest and digest. This process ensures our body digests properly, making the most out of its nutrients and even healing qualities. Be present. Be grateful 🙏 . . . . . . . . . . #naturopath #naturopathy #naturopathystudent #growfoodnotlawns #herbalisim #asparagus #holistichealing #medicinalplants #nutrition #bepresent #plantbasednutrition #vegan #animallover #spirituality #naturelover #mothernature #ancientwisdome #foodasmedicine #greatful #consciouseating #womenkind #womenshealing #presentmoment #healthyliving #consciousliving #mondbodysoul #energyhealing #awakening #connect2earth #kristyleenaturopathy

If only everything could be as bright as these little beauties. ☀️💚 Our zucchinis are flourishing. Most years to many to bare with so far. We have a steady little harvest of them. 3 lbs on the scale and another 3 cups in the fridge waiting to be made into scrumptious #goldenzuchinni cookies. What are some of your favorite tried and true recipes for your #zuchinnis ?

Garden pea love ❤️ Delicious and fresh, far better than any can or frozen bag. It sure takes a lot of pods to make a serving though 😂 It's ok, my daughter ate half of what we picked tonight. It was just the first small flush, there will be plenty more! . . . . . #hippiefarm #urbangarden #urbanfarming #urbanfarm #backyardgarden #gardenpeas #englishpeas #peas #pea #heirloom #vegetablegardening #growfoodnotlawns #squarefootgarden #squarefootgardening #sustainable #selfsustaining #selfsustainable #composttea #notillgardening #backtoeden #organic #organicgarden #tinyfarm #cityfarm #growyourown #growyourownfood #michigan #growninmichigan #usda6b #6b

Too rainy to be at the farm so I popped some popcorn from the farm instead... nothing like homegrown, veganic, organic popcorn! As a matter of fact, I challenge you to find it elsewhere!

Everyone should have one of this. Chaya- aka tree spinach, is toxic when raw and AMAZING when cooked. high in protein(5.7%), crude fiber (1.9%), calcium(199.4 mg/100g), potassium (217.2 mg 100g), iron (11.4 mg/100 g), vitamin C (164.7 mg/100 g), and carotene (0.085 mg/100 g).💣 . It is easy to grow and maintain. I highly recommend it for an edible garden and to implement in a weekly diet. 🙌 . . #chaya #ediblegardening #selfresponsibility #selfsustainable #consciousliving #plantbased #foodishealing

A little before and after. The before was three years ago. The after is this afternoon. I honestly can’t believe once there was nothing but grass in this yard! Sometimes I wander through and think, “I need to do this. I need to fix that over there. That space is really bare.” Then I see this and I’m all like, “you nailed it girl!”. 😂 It’s the heart of a gardener I guess, it’s just never finished. Thank goodness for that! 🌿🥒🍅🍈🥕🌽🌶

Will you ever ripen??? I swear these cherry tomatoes have been sitting on the vine for weeks, and just will not turn red! It’s driving me crazy! . We’ve tried putting one of the plants in the shade, one in the sun, more water, fertilizer...everything and they just won’t give! . Does anyone have any idea what’s going on??
