So much for that spinach! It's been warm for 2 days and bam! That's a wrap. Unfortunately not a spinach wrap.😞

When the baby says he wants to plant stuff for playtime, we plant stuff!! 🌱 We busted out the catnip and basil seeds and that boy filled the pots, patted the seeds in, and watered them all by himself! 😍 #futuremastergardener 😉

“A world without tomatoes is like a string quartet without violins." ~Laurie Colwin . 🌱 There seems to be a certain amount of controversy amongst gardeners on whether one should prune their tomatoes 🍅—the suckers in the armpit between stems. All of my heirlooms are indeterminate, with a long growing season well into the fall, as compared to determinate, which have a shorter set growing period with all of the fruits coming in at the same time—good for pots and in colder climates with a shorter growing season. I prune mine every few weeks, leaving a few behind, to limit the nutrient hungry foliage and the amount of space they take up. ❓Do you prune your tomato plants❓ . ✨ #tomatoes #tomato #pruning #heirloomtomatoes #tomatoplant #homegrowntomatoes #ediblegarden #gardentotable #kitchengarden #ediblelandscaping #homegrown #vegetablegarden #raisedgardenbeds #lauriecolwin #tomatolove #growyourownfood

Can’t beat Free-ninety-free! I took the kids down to the cabin this morning and we cut a ton of bamboo poles to use for trellises and tomato stakes! We used the van to bring them back to the cabin from the gettin’ place and my parents hauled them on the trailer to the house 🙌🏻 . . . #farmtofork #yardtotable #eatwhatyougrow #growwhatyoueat #eatfresh #farmfresh #homestead #homegrown #gardening #farmstead #halfpinthomestead #homesteading #playingindirt #farmlife #arkansas #knowwhereitcamefrom #thatfarmlife #growsomething #justplant #growyourown #gardenlife #backyardgardening #frontyardtoo #heirloomgarden #farmliving #growfoodnotlawns #freetrellises #naturaltrellis #tomatostakes

The enemy. This plot is riddled with mares tail, and hasn't been weeded for aeons. We know it's best to hoe and not disrupt the root, but the plot is so lumpy and bumpy, we've got to dig and rake. This year will be damage limitation. The real war with starving it of light starts next year. #marestail #marestails #allotment UK #allotment #allotmentlife #growyourown #gardening #kitchengarden #growyourownfood #vegetablegarden #homegrown #allotmentlove #allotmentuk #gyo #ediblegarden #nodig #garden #vegpatch #gardener #allotmentgarden #flowers #harvest #veggies #growwhatyoueat #greenthumb #horticulture

Finally harvested my #redpotatoes from this 1x6 box. Kinda wish I had planted more and in a bigger area, but this is a first and I'm pleased.

As well as growing lots of lovely flowers and edibles, we want to make our garden and plot friendly to the local wildlife. Last year we put in a small wildlife area in our garden. We created a small pond by sinking a flexi-tub bucket and filling it with water. A year on and it’s full of life! We have at least 2 frogs living in it, as well as water snails. If you build it, they really do come! 🐸🐌 . . . #wildlife #pond #nature #allotment #allotmentlife #yarden #allotmentuk #allotmentlove #allotmentlife 🌱 #allotmentgarden #homegrown #allotmenteer #backyardgarden #urbangarden #urbangardening #veggarden #homegrown #homegrownfood #myhappyplace #gardenersofinstagram #instagarden #gardengram #growwhatyoueat

Just last month things were greyer; today we couldn't be more thrilled with the colour (especially green!) and the love our members are putting into Our Garden. Can't wait to see what summer brings!

When life gives you lemons ... 💚 That's really such a silly saying, especially as I really like lemons and life has no intentions of giving out free lemons. This tree I've had for almost a year now and it didn't overwinter all that well. It got bugs sucking it dry, but it's been trying to get back on its feet since I returned it outside. It's blossoming again, let's see how that goes. I guess I kind of relate to it: getting sucked dry bit still trying to do my best to create fruit. #10010 #learningfromnature #lemon

Made Strawberry & Vanilla Panna Cotta with the strawberries we got from @brocksfarm_nc 🍓 Panna cotta is creamy and passes the wobble test! I would normally make a compote with the strawberries to pair with this panna cotta. But the strawberries are just so sweet with a hint of tartness that it just balances out the creamy texture of the panna cotta. You can easily eat these berries on it's own - it's that good! I can eat a whole lot of this! One of my favorite desserts!

When we moved to our house in October we were left with a climbing rose and two mature lavender bushes. Our neighbour told me the rose would be stunning when it flowered and it hasn't let me down! The first bloom opened today!

How is your garden going so far? Did you remember where you planted everything last year so you can rotate your crops properly? Did you record when you planted everything so you can make any needed adjustments next year? How about just recording the different varieties your growing this year? There is so much to keep track of when growing a garden! The more you keep track of the better you can fine tune your growing practices and get the most out of your garden! I have so enjoyed using the Ultimate garden planner and journal to keep all my records organized. See mire in my stories.😁 💜You can get your copy via instant PDF download and finally get organized😉 link is in the bio. 💜 WHAT'S INCLUDED: Cover page Month at a glance Week at a glance Seed starting guide Crop rotation guide Pollinator garden planning worksheets (one for each season) Garden layout grid Seed list Harvest tracker 😊 https://www.myrollinghillsfarm.com/store/c3/garden_planner_journal_and_worksheets_PDFdownload

Normality resumes and it was back to the Lottie today 👍🏻 I feel like I’m chasing my tail a bit because everything is desperate to be planted out and I’ve only been able to grab 30 mins here and 30 mins there to get stuff done 😕 Today I planted out my aubergines 🍆 and sweetcorn. I did an experiment last year and found that I had better success growing aubergine in pots so this year they are all in pots...there’s something beautiful ❤️ about 🍆🤷‍♀️ #allotment #allotmentlife #allotmentlife 🌱 #homegrown #homegrownveggies #growyourown #gyo #growyourownveggies #growwhatyoueat #eatwhatyougrow #kitchengarden #vegetablegarden #allotmentgarden #allotmentuk #allotmentlove

Today’s post-work trip to water everything at the plot reminded me of last June/July! ☀️🌱 Remember when it didn’t rain for weeks?! 💧Literally every day I rushed straight from work to the allotment in order to get the watering done so I could make it home in time to watch the World Cup matches! 😂⚽️ Gosh, just think... this July I’ll have a newborn baby to contend with, too! 🤰💙

The backs of my #chiantihybridsunflower remind me of a carnival! 🤹‍♀️ . Swipe to see the front, which is just gorgeous!! 😍 These are by far my favorite that I've grown so far! They're a pollenless type so they really make great cutting flowers for inside! What are your favorite types of #sunflowers ? 🌻🌻

Shed base prep started, and weeding for the ‘garden’ area. Some changes to my original plan - the ‘shed’ will now be accessed via the ‘garden’ area itself, rather than from the side.

BIG UP to all a di Farmer dem! Much respek to the backyard gardeners worldwide. We should all try to grow something we can eat and if we all did that then we would have food coops right in our own communities for us by us. A pretty lawn is useless especially if your soil is already fertile. If you dont have a yard grow in containers and start small. Tag your favorite IG farmers and growers so I can follow them fam. Shout out to @infinite_roots_farm and @growwhereyouare. #farm #growwhatyoueat #eatwhatyougrow #selfsufficency #buyland #neighborhoodfoodcoops #shifttheparadigm #onegarden #atatime #love

Clematis catching those last few rays of the day...🌸 . Im definitely no green goddess, but I am trying harder than I have in previous years to make the little space we have outside a bit greener, prettier and more useable...🌱 . Clematis and Honeysuckle are absolutely thriving, the wisteria has not been so great but we did get a couple of little flowers this year... 🌱 . Tomato and chilli plants have been grown from the seeds of last years fruits by Nanny G and have now sprouted and are ready for collection - Aurora is super excited about having her own tomato plant to tend for and water ...🌶❤️ . Forever dreaming of that little smallholding (preferably somewhere warm and by the sea) where I can grow all of my own... #daydreamer #oneday . . #gardenlife #greenfingers #clematis #yarden #flowerstagram #sunshineyday #homesweethome #gardenersdelight #growyourown #groworganic #growwhatyoueat #teammotherly #teachthemyoung #letthembelittle #alittlebeautyeveryday #theeverydaygirl #myhousebeautfiul #ohheymama #teamgreen #countryside #englishgarden #gogreen #ecofriendlyliving #gardenersworld #mygarden #atmine

Love my soil. Soaked up within an hour and stopped raining long enough to get the woodchips down!!! I’m ready for round 2 in an hour and a half, let’s see how well it holds up. . The awesome thing about woodchips is they soak up water and release it when the ground needs it! . Btw: I saw sooo many worms, spiders, and crawly things in these chips it’s amazing the ecosystem this creates!!! Seriously, like 4 worms per scoop of chips. 😍 . . . #iowagarden #growfoodnotlawns #cottegegarden #growwhatyoueat #woodchips #backtoeden #backtoedengarden #permaculture #eco #grow #garden #girlgrowers #heirloomgardening #backyardgarden

Finally finished the ‘edge’ bed for the ‘fruit garden’ area today. The two beds in the middle are for strawberries - one of which already planted. The long ‘U’ shaped bed will accommodate Rhubarb. The long ‘thin’ part (around 5m long) will include my 3 grafted apple trees, which I plan to espalier (thus forming a kind of ‘hedge’ separating me from the plot behind).⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣.⁣ ⁣.⁣ ⁣.⁣ ⁣.⁣ ⁣ #growwhatyoueat #growyourfood #veggiegarden   #kitchengarden   #ediblegarden #greenfingers #gardenersofinstagram   #horticulture #mygardentoday   #growsomethinggreen   #growfood #organicgarden #ilovegardening   #gardenblogger #growfoodnotlawns   #lovemygarden   #organicgardening   #mybackyard   #backyardgardening #vegtablegarden   #allotmentlife #allotment   #growyourownfood #allotmentlove ⁣ ⁣

When you buy produce, more than just pesticides can put your health at risk. Germs from other customers are rampant and hard to avoid. ⠀ ⠀ Research shows that the average grocery store shopping cart has nearly 138,000 bacteria per square inch!!⠀ ⠀ Now imagine those germs getting onto your produce from the number of customers searching for the perfect apple or head of lettuce after pushing their shopping cart around. Lost your appetite yet? 😷⠀ ⠀ Skip the grocery store and sow some seeds instead.🌱⠀

The garden is coming along nicely 😍. I have about fifteen tomato plants, eight peppers, a million peas, twenty bush beans, and quite a few melons. I'm still collecting cucumbers but I have four different varieties and counting. One pumpkin, and one zucchini. The corn is getting nice and big and I'm so excited to eat that fresh off the stalk! My blueberry bushes are covered in little green berries, and the apple tree is looking fabulous thanks to Uncle Danny's pruning job! We are also still enjoying meat from our birds from last fall, and plenty of fresh eggs every day. If I had a doe in milk, we could practically live off our home grown food. . #organicgarden #organicgardening #growyourownfood #gardentotable #farmlifebestlife #dreamcometrue #oregonroots #oregonrootshomestead #growwhatyoueat

Are my subjects doing that thing with the #raisedbeds correctly? #henrysgardenadventures (we usually wouldn’t have put the plastic sheets in, but the reclaimed wood we’re using has a lot of tarmac sticking to it which we’re not that keen to seep into our soil, and later into our vegetables) . . . #gardening #raisedbed #naturalgarden #veggiepatch #growyourownfood #gardenlove #farmtotable #instagarden #cattitude #instacats #😻 #🐱 #🌱 #gardenlife #gardeningberlin #vegetablegarden #organicgardening #growyourownfood #growwhatyoueat
