🥕🥒GARDEN Update 🍅🥬(my big guy insisted I share a picture with you). ☀️ Everyone morning, the kids wake up and go check on the garden. It’s been such a wonderful experience and has been has been such a fantastic way to teach them to be responsible and care for nature. 🌻From watering them, 💦 to taking care of the compost, it’s so great to see my kids find some much joy in the simple things. “LOOK MOMMY the beans 🌱 are climbing!!! 🥬🥒 We officially have tomatoes, spinach, lots and lots of green onions and so much more!🥕 #raisingareaderwithrebekah #gardening #mtlmoms #canadianmoms #playinthedirt #kidadventures #unlearning #gardenlife #beansprouts #growingfood #growingfoodisfun

Tray cleaning can definitely take some time. Investing in the sturdier trays from @bootstrapfarmer was a wise move. The older, cheaper trays are a lot more difficult to keep in place once the hose is on them. They tend to break a lot easier as well. Initially the bootstrap prices were higher but we haven't had to replace a single tray. Can't say the same about the "budget" brands. Not an ad. Just throwing some praise at another business that has helped make our little farm better. #urbanfarm #farming #microgreens #microgreen #gardening #growing #growingfood #chores

Blueberry size - variety does matter, but for the fruits to reach their size potential, cross-pollination is required. When buying multiple plants, make sure their flowering periods overlap. For 2-3 plants, it may be preferable to get the same variety of each for this reason. . . . . . #backyardeats #homegrownfood #longlivetheraisedbed #homegrown #veggies #growwithjohnnys #organicgardening #chestnuthillpa #PHLgardendistrict #philly #urbangarden #urbanagriculture #growsomethinggreen #foodgarden #raisedbed #ediblegarden #gardening #growingfood #homegrownveggies #phillystartup

First harvest of gooseberries and red currants (there were some raspberries too, but they didn't make it further than the allotment gate before they were eaten 🤣😍) #growwhatyoueat #summerberries #nature #jam

Hey all!! Back again with another garden update! My Hubbard squash is getting a decent size and setting a bunch of squash! I love it! I can’t tell when to harvest the corn so I’m letting it sit as long as I can for it to fill out. Strawberries are still producing which I LOVE! Nothing is better than a fresh strawberry. Watermelon killed off some younger fruit in order to take care of the bigger ones you see! My tomatoes Lee getting fatter too but they’re still green so I’ll have to update when they finally turn color with them haha. This concludes my garden update for today but I hope you all have a great Wednesday!! QOTD: what is your favorite flower if you have one?

Growth sometimes happens no matter what. This blooming onion is proof that some things change no matter what you try to do to contain the situation. We don't control how or when. It just happens. When and how one blooms is when and how they bloom. ____ An unhealthy mind sees a rotten onion that wasn't used in time and throws it away. A healthy mind can see that the onion can still be used, but in a different way. Those little chopped green onions that usually garnish a dish? They gotta come from somewhere, right? That's right. The sprouting onion can still be used. ___ My kitchen is one of the hottest rooms in my house during the summer. My potatoes and onions will start sprouting if I don't get to them in time. Intentionally let my leftover onions, a red potato, and a sweet potato go just to see what they do instead of being pessimistic and throwing them out. So far, I'm not disappointed. Looks like my Cherokee heritage is kicking in. No lie, they had a use for EVERYTHING. ____ #paleo #whole30 #aip #keto #foodisthymedicine #birminghamblogger #paleoinalabama #farmtotable #inthenameofscience #mindset #freshfood #perspective #wisdom #mentality #growingfood #southernliving #paleolife #eatrealfood #foodie #foodblogger

I'm LOVING the garden right now!! Taking care of my 3 young kiddos plus 1 is definitely keeping me busy and making it hard to keep the garden as tidy as it usually is....but it is still so wonderful to be out there when I can. We've had plenty of mulberries, lettuce, swiss chard, kale, and peas. The tomatoes, beans, and peppers are coming along nicely and our zucchini is a day or 2 away from a first harvest. I can't believe how cool it has stayed!! Any other year, the peas would be long dead!!

Only one of the leafy greens our home growing systems offer right now is a species once referred to as miner's lettuce. Miners in the 1849 Gold Rush in California used it as a fresh salad green. Swipe to get the answer!

P L A N T to P L A T E 🌱 Something a little different for this post - a discussion of food miles. Did you know that the issue is not as simple as where a food is from? For example a tomato grown and brought in England during winter actually has a HIGHER carbon footprint 👣 than a tomato grown in Spain during the same season and imported to England 😱 This is because the production method accounts for approx. 83% of the footprint on average, versus 4% for the actual transportation from production to store to consumer. Projects in Sweden are an exception as they’ve worked out how to grow tomatoes during winter using waste heat and renewable energy. So unless you can get your hands on those Swedish super toms 🍅 🇸🇪 🙌 here are the key takeaways: • Stick to *local* produce BUT in season only • If buying out of season fruit buy from counties where it *is* in season • If you can grow any in your own garden HAVE AT IT AND ENJOY THEM AND ENJOY THOSE FINE TASTING VEGGIES 🌈 🌽 🍅 🥬 🌈

Does anyone else get so excited about carrots and parsnips you just have to pull one out to see if it’s ready yet? I give you my first ikle baby carrot and parsnip. Not quite there yet, but soon, very soon 🤤 Spring onions starting to get to the right length to harvest too. I’m like a squirrel eating what I can fresh and storing the rest for winter - in my case mainly the freezer. I’m on a low FODMAP diet due to a medical condition, which unfortunately means I can’t tolerate much of onion or garlic which is a key ingredient in many dishes I love. As a work around I’m growing a lot of spring onions, leeks (can eat the green parts), chives and garlic chives. The flavours are so much more potent when home grown and freshly harvested... #lowfodmap #fodmap #fodmapdiet #ibs #grow #growingfood #growyourown #allotment #allotmentuk #allotmentlove #allotmentlife #allotmentgarden #garden #gardening #garten #gartenliebe #jardin #urbangarden #urbangardens #kitchengarden #food #veg #vegetables #vegetablegarden #mindfulness #stressrelief #green #wales #joy

A bunch of veggies are starting to emerge. Excited that we have tomatoes starting to form, alot of the tomato plants were struggling due to all of the rain we have been receiving. The other plant pictures are of romanesco broccoli, Casper eggplant, tam jalapenos, bell peppers and a cucamelon (which was immediately eaten after the photo). The last picture is destroyer of seedlings, Olive 🤣. My watermelon, corn, squash, and beans are not fenced so she loves to run through the garden and by extension trample some of the younger plants 🤷‍♀️ luckily I planted 12 watermelon seedlings and alot of beans! #doggo #garden #growingfood #broccoli #caspereggplant #eggplant #jalapenos #cucamelons #destroyerofplants #wilddoggo #growsomefood

Let me be very honest here.... since having the girls home from school for the summer it has likely rained more than half of the time. I love a perfectly good snuggle-on-the-couch-with-a-movie #rainyday , but this mama is over it and needs her sunshine (for everyone’s sake). The overall stir-crazy that this rain brings out in my girls from being cooped up in the house is ridiculous. 🤪 And it’s still only June. Haha _ However, what I am loving about all this rain is that the garden is poppin. Rhubarb & strawberries 🍓everyday, eggplant & peppers budding, tons of lettuce 🥬 and I think this may be the first year we get a crop of blueberries!!! _ We’ve been able to sneak out at least once every day to take a peek at what’s growing & even pick a few early growers to snack on. Sweet! _ #Silverlinings are what it’s all about! 🌱 _ #mylittlegardeners #growyourfood #garden #plantingseeds #vegetablegarden #fruitgarden #fruit #veggies #herbgarden #growingfood #pickyourfood

part 3 #terraliberalisbook … in order to explore this planet and in order to answer the question whether life is possible on Terra Liberalis or not and they’ve also found out that Terra Liberalis has a very fertile soil and that the planet is full of important raw materials! And shortly before the 1st human landed on Terra Liberalis, they’ve sent special robots to the planet which built the basic infrastructure for the colonization, so the First Colony and the space airport there was built! But, there was also another settlement there- the mining companies let the robots also built the infrastructure for the crystal mine and for the plantages, where they were farming the fruit and vegetables bound for planet Earth. The Mining Companies wanted to have this built, that they can just start with the mining and farming, soon after the first humans arrived on Terra Liberalis! And now, the “emigration- to- Terra Liberalis- business” was a booming industry! The Mining Companies were offering an offer the most people can’t refuse: “Your flight to Terra Liberalis is for free, but you have to pay off your debts in the mining and/or at the plantages!” “Okay, okay, but you said, the robots build the basic infrastructure there, but why do they still need people in order to mine and/or in order to grow and harvest the crops at the plantages?” Well… the transportation of the mining and other huge machines was possible, but so expensive that it was cheaper to let humans do the work!  And due to the fact, that the waiting lists for way Nr.3 were long, the Mining Companies didn't even think about letting the robots doing this job! #readingbooks #scifibooks #readingscifibooks #anotherplanet #exoplanet #universe #outtaspace #spacecolony #thefuture #22ndcentury #writingbooks #writing #corn   #harvesting #foodcrops #plantages #fertilesoil #agriculture #mais #wetsoil #colony #convictcolony #sciencefiction #growingfood #foodcrops #cashcrops

part 2 #terraliberalisbook And if that specific talent you got was needed in the First Colony, the foundation was paying your ticket to Terra Liberalis! And yeah, planet  Terra Liberalis was full of opportunities! The whole infrastructure, the whole city, the whole First Colony was still under construction and that means, that there had been a lot of job/ business opportunities for all the people! But there was also way Nr. 3 for getting to Terra Liberalis: For way Nr. 3 the people were waiting on the waiting lists, because this way was for free! But what all these people didn’t know was, that this was their way to slavery! The idea/business model for way Nr. 3 was simple: your ticket to Terra Liberals was for free, HOWEVER! You had to pay off your debts (the 1.000.000$ flight ticket) with 'helping' in the mining or at the plantages as long as your debts were paid off!  Terra Liberalis is full with important raw materials and it is a very fertile planet! The warm climate made it almost possible to harvest weekly, if not daily! On Terra Liberalis there were also such special crystals, which was an important raw material down on Earth- with spaceships they brought these crystals down to the Earth, where they were selling them for a very high price! These same with fruits and vegetables grown in the soil of Terra Liberalis- this created a real hype down on Earth- everybody was paying a lot of money in order to enjoy food with was farmed outta space/ on another planet! “Hey! Wait? It’s the 22nd century and aren’t there any robots doing the work?” Well...after Terra Liberalis was discovered, they’ve sent exploration robots to the planet…” #readingbooks #scifibooks #readingscifibooks #anotherplanet #exoplanet #universe #outtaspace #spacecolony #thefuture #22ndcentury #writingbooks #writing #corn   #harvesting #foodcrops #plantages #fertilesoil #agriculture #mais #wetsoil #colony #convictcolony #sciencefiction #growingfood #foodcrops #cashcrops

Thank goodness we were able to make some pesto with the basil my mom and I grew in the Aerogarden! I was digging into the pesto and eating by the spoonful before I reluctantly put it away. There wasn't enough basil for an entire jar of pesto so I supplemented with spinach. I have enough to use on pasta for one meal and pizza 🍕 on another (if I don't eat it all by the spoon).

You had me at hello! 💚👩🏻‍🌾 My favorite tomato is the Cream Sausage. Eventually these guys will turn into perfect yellow candy gems. Like all great loves, this relationship has its hardships. The Cream Sausage does not really love zone 10b, but I stay with it because the effort is rewarding. So, nothing but the best for my little determinate buddy, a sweet self-watering container(details in my stories), a view of the pool and plenty of hands-on attention. If we get through June gloom, we have a date for homemade pizza! We all have one thing in our garden we are willing to work a little harder for - right? 💚💚💚 #tomato #tomatoes #worththeeffort #containergardening #tomatoseason #gardenlove

First ferment from our garden this year. Going traditional this round with some good old garlic, red onion and dill pickles. Red onion from @hairston_creek_farm. With the temps rising these babies should be ready to taste in 4-5 days. Only one variety of cucumbers ready for picking so far, but lots of babies hiding out; gerkins, another variety I forgot the name of, shishito peppers, and a bunch of itty bitty melons! Planning to pick our carrots some time in the next week or so and plant, hmmmm I don’t know, maybe beans in their place? What can one plant when expecting 100° temps?
