Abundance from our little veggie patch ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒž This was our Saturday, harvesting and putting up veggies for the winter. Some was kept fresh for the week and the rest was blanched or roasted and then frozen. This will be our first year with our own harvest in the freezer - I can't wait to pull out some beautiful sunny tomatoes on a snowy day ๐Ÿ˜Š . . . #eatwhatyougrow #growwhatyoueat #kitchengarden #homegrown #growfromseed #growsomethinggreen #growfood #newbiegardener #newbiefarmer #humanswhogrowfood #ecofriendly #eatlocal #eatyourveggies #sustainableliving #zerowaste #zerowastefood #zerowastejourney #goingzerowaste #yayforearth #lowimpactliving #smallfarmlife #simpleliving #slowliving #preservingtheharvest #eatinglocalisradical #seasonaleating #eatinseason #homegrownveggies #homegrowntomatoes #homegrown

๐Ÿ“ Strawberries ๐Ÿ“ ~ A hot topic (for an unfortunate reason) here on the East Coast of Australia at the moment. Recent suspected sabotage has had devastating effects on the industry. Punnets are back on supermarket shelves; donโ€™t let them go to waste, cut up your strawberries and enjoy Aussie grown produce! ๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ”ช๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ”ช๐Ÿ“ ~ Although weโ€™ve been growing our own Iโ€™ll be looking for them when I get a few groceries tomorrow. ~ The carbon footprint of growing, packaging, shipping and refrigerating is already made donโ€™t let them contribute to our food waste statistics too. Not only are there environmental impacts of food waste but our Aussie farmers need our support now more than ever to continue producing the superior quality Aussie produce is renowned for. ~ ~ ~ #strawberry #strawberries #strawberryflower #flowersofinstagram #yum #homegrown #freshfromthegarden #eatmoreveggies #homegrownfruit #gardentotable #growwhatyoueat #growyourownfood #zerofoodmiles #humanswhogrowfood #happygardener #urbangardener #organic #organicgardening #homegrownisbest #urbanorganicgardener #vegetablegarden #fromthegarden #growsomethinggreen #gardenblogger #girlswhogarden #girlswithplants #plantmum

Todayโ€™s #bfarmspringphoto theme is โ€œa changeโ€. Weโ€™ve been through plenty in the last 12 months but in the greenhouse is where you can see the massive shift in thinking. . Firstly, we have a greenhouse! Weโ€™ve only ever had one small veggie garden before but now we are looking at planting out around 30 tomato plants, 20 watermelons, 20 pumpkins, 10 cucumbers, 30 capsicums, plus herbs, rosellas, lettuce, radish, luffa and more. . This year we will start to see some real change around here!

Pallets are a great resource for cheap materials when building a coop and run. Great example here from @danny_seeley of a coop made from mostly repurposed materials. His description below is worth the quick read. ใƒปใƒปใƒป I spent the day yesterday knocking this up, excluding time dedicated to eating ๐Ÿ˜‚ this took around 9hours of labour on my own. Built from materials that we've had tucked away for a few years and a few pallets I'd collected over the past fortnight. The coop is easy to clean with a large side door where I can drag material straight into a wheel barrow. Open mesh floor to prevent build up of pests and diseases. Sturdy plastic nesting boxes (repurposed old totes) that I can easily remove, clean and refill through a smaller hatch opening on the back. The run is made from old damaged harris fencing, old pub floor boards and some pallets... I left half the ground bare and the othet half is woodchipped.... A nice little log pile to encourage some wild proteins ๐Ÿœ๐Ÿฆ—๐ŸŒ should make for some very happy chickens ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ” . . . @lawsonsmarketgarden . #selfsufficiency #offgrid #chickens #chickencoop #chickensofinstagram #coop #run #build #recycle #repurposed #upcycle #create #marketgarden #permaculturechickens #legbars #diy #graft #organic #humanswhogrowfood #gardeninglove

As its that time of year for chutneys and jams, here's a little tip if you don't have lids for your big pans when the chutney or jam gets to the 'I'm going to splutter and redecorate the kitchen' stage. Crack a bit of greaseproof on the top and push it down, will still let the liquid evaporate whilst keeping the rest of your kitchen chutney free. Also stops chutneys from boiling to quickly meaning you can crack on with other jobs and won't end up having to chisel the bottom of your pan when finished #allotment #allotmentlife #seeds #vegpatch #gardening #gyo #growyourown #homegrownveg #urbangardenersrepublic #kitchengarden #plot118 #plot #ediblegarden #greenfingers #homegrown #growfoodnotlawns #gardentotable #vegetables #veg #humanswhogrowfood #organic #gyocommunity #grow #plottoplate #instagarden #growyourownfood #everyonecangrowtheirown #nodig

A basket of broccoli shoots with the preschool knees of my garden helper. Itโ€™s shoulder season in the garden at the moment, all the wintry crops are bolting off and spring seedlings are yet to yield. So weโ€™re down to harvesting broccoli shoots, lettuce,kale, spring onions, leeks, silverbeet, herbs and edible flowers. This time last year we had beautiful cabbages ready but this year itโ€™s been much warmer and they arenโ€™t heading up. We await the asparagus with baited breath.

In my natural habitat ๐Ÿ’š - My second year gardening has been successful and quite the learning experience. I realized that I probably shouldn't have planted so many tomatoes as I constantly had so many once it harvested lol But it was so hard not to considering how most of them were gifted to me ๐Ÿ…๐Ÿ˜… - I also learned that pruning and consistent watering is key ๐Ÿ— to keep your plants alive and happy. I had to water my plants twice a day especially during the hot weather! Of course good soil also plays an important factor (I used egg shells in mine). - Pruning at first may be a little scary as your plants look completely naked but it helps them focus its energy to the rest of the plant ๐ŸŒฑ๐Ÿ’• In the first 2 photos I just prune the plants and cut some leaves off of it. If you swipe you'll see a video of my garden bed now โžก๏ธ There's new growth and new flowers!! Pretty cool right? ๐Ÿ˜Š

Put it's guts in the blender.. Threw in some grape tomatoes, "sweet Hungarian peppers," dill from the garden... Then some of pretty much every spice, turmeric, ginger, cumin, cinnamon, basil, sage, probably other stuff too ๐Ÿ˜ Blended it! - Thennnn scooped 90% of it into the zucchinis. - Cooked some ground beef with the remaining 10%. - Threw the zucchini in the oven for 40min. Put the ground beef on about halfway through. - It was prrrretty yummy! But yeah, the "sweet Hungarian peppers," the pepper itself is sweet, the seeds though, phew!

There is such abundance in the garden. Sometimes I think there won't be much to harvest, but than I look closer and find the hidden treasures. Since the season for fresh herbs is coming to an end I've started drying some. Now my room smells like parsley and basil and lavas. I've learned that the seeds of cilantro and dill can be used for pickling, so my drying rack is full of them. The sunflowerheads are for the chickens. They seem to be thriving on a gardenbased diet. #eggvignette for @happydaysfarm #fingerprintofgod #harvestbasket #rootedgardengame4 #homegrownfood #homegrownherbs #growyourownflowers #growwhatyoueat #growyourownfood #growfoodnotlawns #growsomethinglovely #growingbeauty #farmlife #countryliving #livingintentionally #livingwiththeseasons #livelifeincolor #livingofftheland #livingwithnature #lifelonglearning #humanswhogrowfood #iamamodernfarmer #womenwhofarm

At #ipuwai.farm our soil is composed of a lot of #clay. In order to plant our fruit trees we cant dig into the soil, we have to plant on top with added soil. Here are the steps we take in order to plant a happy #cherrytree... 1. Scratch the soil and pull all of the grass away from a meter wide circle. 2. Lay cardboard or newspaper on the circle. This acts as a weed mat that eventually decomposes 3. Put some compost or, in our case, decomposed silage on top of the weed mat. 4. Make a small hole and add some natural fertilizer or composted #manure. 5. Place the root ball of the plant into the hole and face the plant the way you want it. 6. We added some #biochar around the hole and then put more #compost over the root ball but not too close to the base of the tree. 8. Stake and tie the tree near the base so it will not move as the roots develop. #claysoil #treeplanting #fruittree #nzfarming #sustainable #humanswhogrowfood #farming #fruit #spring #nz #northland #takahue
