A bit of colour in the veggie patch this morning with my broccoli and cabbages coming along nicely in the background, after our drenching rain yesterday which my plants would have loved even if I didn’t 😆👏🏻🌧 . .

Child free morning and friend for coffee so instead of clearing up the toys and hoovering up the breakfast breadcrumbs scattered throughout the house, I had a bit of fun trying to bottle the zingy orange and purple corner of my garden. It worked and she was thankfully distracted from the mess 😂😂 💪🏻 It’s all going on in this exotic mix- two types of orange daylillies, tagetes, crocosmia, verbena, alliums, lime green tobacco, ammi visnaga, and green amaranthus . Busy and suitably diverting . . . . #peartreecottagesussex #cottagegarden #homesteading #growyourownveg #growyourownveggies #countryliving #countrylife #sussex #allotment #gardensofinstagram #gardeningwithkids #mygarden #whatsinthegarden #earlysummer #julygarden #gardentotable #growwhatyoueat #potager #cutflowers #cuttinggarden

All I can think of is; CARAMELIZED SHALLOTS Ingredients: 2 pounds of whole shallots 6 tablespoons of butter 3 tablespoons of sugar 3 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar 1/2 teaspoon of sea or kosher salt 1/4 teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper 2 tablespoons of flat leaf parsley, finely chopped 1 thick slice of Roquefort cheese Directions: Start by peeling the papery skins off the shallots. To do this, bring a pot of water to a boil. Boil the shallots for just a minute and then drain them. The outside skin will slip off easily. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Melt butter in a large sautee pan. Add the shallots and sugar and toss to coat. Cook over medium heat until the shallots begin to brown. Add the vinegar, salt and pepper and toss. Roast the shallots in the oven until tender and caramelized, about 20-30 minutes. Sprinkle the parsley over and serve with a slice of Roquefort cheese on top or on the side. 🤭😋🤗

The most expensive cucumbers, tomatoes and basil 😜😭😂 I still can't get behind growing your own veggies to save money...yet. I'm sure I'll get there, but that's not my motivation. Highest quality, safe, delicious, good for you food, that can be accessed at any time keeps me going. And it's fun. The growing community is fantastic. #tomato #tomatoes #cukes #cucumbers #garden #gardening #raisedbed #raisedbeds #raisedgardenbeds #instagarden #gardeninglife #gardenlovers #veggies #veggiebed #vegetablebed #summergarden #backyardgarden #growwhatyoueat #eatfresh #homegarden

Great success 🍾 and disappointing failure 😢 all in one photo. I grew dahlias from seed last year and stored them away. I tried to follow the guidance of the great and wise Monty. When I brought them out in spring and repotted them, they looked liked they had survived but after months of waiting I was left with just one dahlia 😓. Then I nearly put it in the composter by mistake 🙄. I suspect I overwatered the others because the tubers had started to rot 😣. This one is going to have lots of TLC and next year I shall have another go 😋 #dahlias #flower #allotment #allotmentlife #growwhatyoueat #eatwhatyougrow #lincolnshire #GYO #growyourown #homegrown #realfood #garden #gardening #2018 #gardenersworld #kitchengarden #sustainable #gardenchat #summer #allotmenteering #realfood #greenthumb

One of my fondest memories of middle school was having a watermelon vine in the back of our classroom, however we went on summer break before the watermelons fully developed...womp womp 😑 . I didn’t think I could grow watermelon in my soil-less backyard but after watching @calikim29 grow these babies vertical by using a diy tomato cage, I knew I had to try to grow my favorite fruit! Here we are, in the middle of summer and I’ve got baby watermelons growing, ready to be harvested in a few weeks! 🍉

Build nutrient-rich soil with beans 🌿🍃 Not only do beans provide a happy green home for lizards, they also have a symbiotic (give and take) friendship with rhizobia bacteria.This soil-dwelling bacteria enters the roots and multiples to form little clusters called nodules. The bean plant doesn't mind because rhizobia solve a critical problem for leguminous plants and all life.  Nitrogen is essential to life, but the nitrogen gas, N2 that makes up 80% of the Earth's atmosphere is unusable by most living things. Rhizobia converts N2 into the usable form NH3, and gives it to the plant in return for energy and nutrients. We grow cow peas, pinto beans and black beans, but there are many leguminous plants, even trees, that do wonders for the soil. At the end of the growing season, chop the plant and leave it in the garden. The nitrogen, now in a usable form, in the plants' roots, stalk and leaves will be steadily released to the soil while you plant the next crop. Some of the nitrogen will "leak" out of the roots during the plant's lifetime, therefore it's not a bad idea to grow beans near nitrogen-loving plants. Best of all, beans are so easy to grow, we often find them sprouting in the path after being misplaced. Our bodies are made up of soil, therefore healthy soil is the foundation of healthy bodies and minds. Wendell Berry put it best in Unsettling America, "The soil is the great connector of lives, the source and destination of all. It is the healer and restorer and resurrector, by which disease passes into health, age into youth, death into life. Without proper care for it we can have no community, because without proper care for it we can have no life."

I now have enough beans for tea every day. I grow these in the patch at home so I can pop down to the garden after work and pick them fresh every day. I love it that I have a bit more colour variety this year although the deaf yellow beans are not doing as well as the rest

Just got back from vacation -It was wonderful to spend time relaxing with friends and family in Central Oregon at a family wedding. Check out a few photos of the gorgeous forest wedding @calicameraguy shot (and our waterfall walk, visiting the last Blockbuster on earth) on his profile. 😀 ☀️ Home Sweet Home and back to the garden today! It’s always fun see what the garden’s been up to after being gone. Good thing my Tiny Tim Tomatoes and Yellow Patio Choice didn’t take a break. 🍅 Any fun vacation plans for you this summer? Tips for getting your garden ready for u to be gone? . . . .

Hola everyone 👋🏼😃 Is it cloudy or just overcast ☁️🤷‍♂️🌫 I can’t even tell anymore but at least it’s not hot 😂😅😂 Here’s a long overdue harvest of some neglected beets. My idea was to grow them in small containers so I can move them around to chase the shade but you know, sometimes it just don’t happen 😁🤦‍♂️😁 I’m not complaining because even though the greens never looked all that great, I’ll take a summer beet harvest any day 🙌🏼😃🙌🏼 Can’t wait to start some cool weather things, especially the colored carrots and beets you sent Cathy ( @grown.by.a.rookie.510 ) 👏🏼😆👏🏼 But in the meantime, I’m gong to go look for some more Chile Manzanos to harvest...I believe there will be at least three ready!!! Enjoy the rest of your day or nite everyone and thank you so much for stopping by 👋🏼😊💚 #ilovemygarden #beets #betabel #remolacha #growfromseed #grownfromseed #growyourown #growyourownfood #growyourfood #growwhatyoueat #growwhatyoulove #growsomethinggreen #containergarden #containergardening #gardentotable #gardentherapy #happytuesday #thankyoueveryone

The garden is starting to produce more!!@ zucchini, cucumber, anaheim pepper, mini pepper (supposed to be a sweet variety....pretty sure that was a lie as the bite of the other I tried was HOT), pear tomatoes, kale, chard, mint, basil, oregano! So excited for the other heirloom tomatoes to ripen, the small spaghetti squash to be ready, and hoping the corn and melons do well! #growwhatyoueat #gardengirl #homegrownveggies #eatwellbewell

2 dozen zucchini muffins, 2 loaves of zucchini bread, 8-4oz servings of zucchini and yellow squash baby food, a full gallon size ziplock bag of blanched and frozen chopped zucchini, 1/2 gallon of blanched and frozen sliced yellow squash, AND I still have 2 huge zuccs I haven’t touched yet and more on the vine. It’s a learning experience and now I know that next year I’m going to grow way less! • • #suburbangardening #suburbanfarmer #suburbanlife #homegarden #gardening #growyourfood #growyourown #614 #cbus #asseenincolumbus #girlswithplants #mygarden #zone6a #homegrown #gardentotable #greenthumb #growfood #growwhatyoueat #eatwhatyougrow #zucchini #summersquash #yellowsquash #instagarden #instaplants #instafood #instalike
