Still a few hanging on. The tomato plants were slow to start and slow to go. This season was so sleepy for most of the garden, and a lot was eaten or otherwise ruined by pests. I dont know if we'll still be in the same place next year, but if we are, I have a great start on planning and recognizing what grew well in my soil and what didn't. 🌿🍅 . . . . . . #sustainableliving #gardenpests #gardensofinstagram #instagarden #gardenphotography #tomatoplants #plantlover #nature #organicgardening #organicpesticides #urbangardening #urbangarden #urbangardeners #zerowastegoals #zerowaste #pacificnorthwest #pnwgarden #pnwgardening #growyourownfood #eatwhatyougrow

I’m about to serve this gorgeous Tomato Phyllo Tart for my Break Fast. I layered phyllo dough brushed with olive oil, topped it with sautéed onions, garlic and oregano, topped that with the cutest little cherry tomatoes from my garden, and topped that with pecan dust, nooch and fresh parsley. I am going to hide a piece and save it for later because I’m predicting there won’t be even a single flake of phyllo left over. #vegan #freshtomatoes #tomatotart #phyllotart #freshtomatotart #vegantomatotart #eatplants #plantpower #plantsarebeautiful #eathealthy #gardentotable #growyourownfood #yomkippur #breakthefast #jewishvegan #veganjewishfood #happyjewishnewyear

9.19.18 // cat sitting for a friend this week so I won't have any new garden pics 🌿 here's a flashback from last year instead : 1 • did you know my husband and I lived in a tiny house for 2.5 years? We designed it ourselves and loved every minute of living in it. 2 • my first humble attempt at gardening in the state of NC when we first moved down here. 3 • I built my beds following the lasagna method. I had pretty good results with this technique. 4 • when we moved from Chicago to NC we brought our tiny house with us. We were fortunate to find some awesome people who let us park on their land. 5 • @homesteadstrong & I the day our tiny house trailer arrived. After two years of planning & designing we were so ecstatic that it was finally happening! 6 • tony kitty + tiny house 7 • another shot of my old garden during the growing season 8 • the first four beds I ever built! 9 • our tiny house was 118 sq ft. It was the perfect size for us and we miss it everyday! ✨

Luna is such a bully! She leaves her feed bucket to go and shove Coco away from hers, but then runs back to her own so Coco can’t get to that one either. Normally I tie Luna to the fence when she’s eating so she can’t do this but this morning with the rain I just didn’t have time. Sorry Coco. . . . . . #worms #wormfarm #compost #backyardpoultry #backyardchickens #fresheggs #exbatteryhens #urbangoats #backyardgoats #urbanfarm #urbanhomestead #microfarm #growyourownfood #growfoodnotlawns #organic #freerange #suburbanhomestead #nigeriandwarfgoat #nubiangoats #mininubian #sisters

The secret of growing healty organic vegetables is is all about improving your soil fertililty. We compost our kitchen scraps in a worm bin.The worms decompose the scraps and turn them into compost and wormtea. Adding the tea to the water when watering the plants will give them a extra shot of nutrients and microbes who will protect them against pests.

The garden in mid-September (as seen from my porch roof). Lots of flopping over and blocked pathways but it’s still producing. The first photo is the new garden beds as of this year-it was all grass last year. Swipe ➡️ to see: My front walkway flanked by both sides of the garden (and the Belgian block we “harvested” from the construction project on my street); many, many, many beans and some emerging fall crops in the third photo; and the utter mess of corn, pole beans, and squash in the fourth. Looking ahead, I can’t wait for you to see the fall-blooming perennials in October!

Being healthy isn't always convenient. My daughter has been making us gluten free muffins for breakfast the past few days. I'm glad she is learning to make homemade instead of relying on processed food. ❤️ Teach your kids what whole ingredients are and how to use them. It will carry through their lifetime because fresh food tastes better than processed. ◦ ◦ #homemade #healthisntconvenient #makeyourownfood #noprocessedfood #createrecipes #eathealthy #freshingredients #growyourownfood #creatememories #cookingathome #healthcoach #wellnesscoach #healthylifestyle #cookwithyourkids #kitchen #organicgardening #cleanfood #healthyfamily #holistichealth #backtoyourroots #cleaneatingfun #cookingforhealth #makegoodchoices #naturalingredients #familyfarming #homesteading #vegetablesforlife #smallchoicesmatter #gooddecisions #thelittlethings

I’m so thankful that I was born in the southwest, because otherwise I may not have ever met salsa verde! Roasted Salsa Verde! I love this stuff! I love using it to make Chile verde, stuffed chilies, eat it with tortilla chips, on eggs or just eat it right out of the jar 😂. There isn’t a way that it’s not delicious. Roasting all the veggies is the most time consuming part of this job but well worth it because I like the extra roasted flavor blast it brings to the salsa. My tomatillos were small this year and my green chilies big but that’s just how it goes in the garden some years.

Our permaculture allotment is a mix of wilderness with old fruit bushes and a row of raised beds with different polycultures. Mixing plants works so well they did all grow to monstrous sizes.

Grow my little beauty! These seeds were sold to me as organic Rouge vif d'Etampes, the heirloom Cinderella pumpkin but I'm not convinced! They are turning more orange every day but not the right shape I don't think? Grown organically anyway and I'll be saving the seeds to plant again next year 🙌🏻 #pumpkin #autumn #harvest #allotment #allotmentlife #allotmentlove #plotlife #garden #gardening #organic #growyourown #GYO #dig #growyourownfood #sowandgrow #plot27 #fruitandveg #homegrown #ediblegarden #organicfood #vegplot #veg #fruit #grow

Last Autumn we had orange & purple carrots, not so lucky with this year's harvest! No carrots and no radishes. The weather this year was crazy. Only the most resilient plants survived. Broccoli bolted early, Spuds are going strong, borage a plenty, a sea of chives, chamomile is flowering for a second time, nice bit of sage growing, still getting blueberries, and lots of Elderberries still too. #seasonalfood #growfood #growyourownfood #eatwelllivewell #naturalhealth #wellness #foodismedicine #nutrition #foodforlife #healthmadeeasy #healthyfood #HealthyEating #wellnessauthor #wellnessbook #healthylifestyle #healthtips #parentingtips #recipes #naturalremedies #irishauthor #authorsofinstagram #homecooking #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #parenting #parenthood #irishblogger #thenaturalwellnessbook

As many of you know I support local farmers, where possible for our source of food. 👩‍🌾 Do you buy from a local farmer? If so, share the deets. 😊 I'm a little lost this year with not having my own garden, but thank god our community has a Farmer's Market... it truly has been my saving grace this year. 👨‍🌾 To my surprise the grape plant that I planted 6 years ago is FINALLY producing grapes. 😯🍇😍 The aroma coming off the plant is AMAZING and the taste is SOOO much better than anything I have tasted from the store. Anyone grow their own grapes? What produce are you still getting out of your gardens? #growyourownfood #supportlocal #farmers #farmersmarket #knowyourfarmers #grapes #greenthumb

Honey bee on our peach tree. I'm so excited to see if we get peaches this year. Last year we had the first fruits form but they didn't set, the tree was suffering badly from peach leaf curl. I treated it this year, hopefully enough, and the blossoms are now starting to die back and leaves coming through so I will know soon if the tree had enough treatment. Happy Thursday everyone, only two sleeps until the weekend! This weekend is a big one for us, the husband's birthday is on Saturday night so I have a lot of final touches to clean up and food to start prepping for the crowd. Not only that, big things are happening in the background for Fig and Pepper Garden.

This Pingtung Long Eggplant is mesmerizing! 😍 What unique veggies are growing in YOUR garden? #repost from @highmowingorganicseeds via @crgardening . This is our organic heirloom #pingtunglong eggplant. It's rare to see such distinct lines, but each of these stripes represents a day's growth. As time goes by, more exposure to sunlight creates deeper & deeper color in the fruit.

What does abundance mean to you? Our garden adventure this year has had its ups and downs. Our gourds didn’t make it and after repotting all of the peppers, we’re finally seeing some babies grow! (The growing season here is longer than some other places.) The real MVP this year though, is our cherry tomato plant (scroll to see pix). This dude is has provided us with many little tomatoes and I feel like I actually know what I’m doing when it comes to him. The other 2 tomato plants are still struggling but I love them just as much. Even though our bounty is small, successfully growing our own food is abundance to me!

I am so gratefull for our first harvest. Everything I did was one big experiment but it worked out so well. The kids learned a lot about the natural way food grows and enjoyed tons of warm sunkissed strawberries, cherries and plums. Every time it is a small wonder how much colour and taste can evolve out of one small seed.

I can use some recipe inspiration with Cavolo nero. We roast the leaves in the oven and eat them as chips or mix it with green smooties. Any better suggestions?
