The Padrón Peppers are very early this year. We only have a handful at the moment but in the next few weeks we expect loads from the 1200 plants we planted 4 weeks ago. Padrón Peppers are a traditional tapas pepper and 1 in 15 are hot so it’s a real pepper roulette. We enjoy them best by simply sautéing with olive oil and sea salt. You can find them in our new farm shop very soon. 🌶 👨🏻‍🌾

“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

In love with my wild, adventurous (sometimes pecky) chooks. These are some of the finest, most delicious eggs.

The cucumbers are out! 🥒 Trying to grow two to a pot, and will make them a little climbing frame when they get a little bigger. Can't wait for the little pickles 👏

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

Did you know if you put green onions in water they will keep growing? Just trim the green ends for eating. Keep the bulbs in water...or soil...and you’ll never have to buy green onions again! Change/add water as needed. #greenonions #kitchengarden #houseplants #cookingathome

The dwarf kale have been in the ground now for a couple of weeks under an enviromesh tunnel but these Rudolph broccoli seedlings will grow to 90cm in height so are having to brave it in the open. I don't usually grow anything other than dwarf brassicas but these and the purple sprouts were in a seed box I got at Christmas. Both are winter cropping but their height in my less than sheltered garden means they may not survive too long once the gales start. Still, I have to try them and they may do better than expected - that's if they survive cabbage root fly and cabbage white caterpillars! One thing's for sure, if all the brassicas start producing I won't have to write "greens" on the shopping list for a while!!! #growyourownveg #growyourownveggies #growyourowngreens #homegrown #growyourown #growyourownfood #homegrownveggies #kitchengarden

Also ich bin ja kein eitler Gärtner, aber es erfüllt mich mit unglaublich viel Stolz schöne, unversehrte Radieschen zu ernten. Ich weiß nicht, wie es bei euch aussieht, aber die meisten meiner Radieschen sind doch in irgendeiner Art "verunstaltet" - unförmig, angeknabbert, gerissen. Da kommt mir jedes Mal wie ein kleines Weltwunder vor, wenn ein hübsches Radieschen das Licht der Welt erblickt 😉 . . . #meingarten #biogarten #gemüsegarten #gemüseanbau #radieschen #küchengarten #gesundessen #gemüseliebe #garten #gartenliebe #ernte #selbstversorger #gartenpflanzen #gartenfotografie #gardening #vegetablegarden #kitchengarden #homegrown #growyourown #giy #harvest #radish #organicgardening #healthyfood #gardening_love #gardensofinstagram #gardenphotography

“ Bees for Bees Sake. Not honey or money. “ we are at a point in time where we cannot have the Victorian mindset to all things farming and environmental. Beekeeping as we know it In Langstroth hives was developed over 160 years ago! But we know most of the land mass in the uk is not cover by kept bees but by bees living wild. But bees like bumbles face challenges of pesticides, herbicides. Bad farming. But additional to all of that bee don’t naturally live in Beehives. They live in big cavity’s in trees. This is a big challenge because trees with big cavities are normally rotten and get cut down before they fall down on someone!! GARDENERS BEEHIVE IS A MOCK TREE STUMP!! Saving trees by using wood efficiently!! Give honey bees what they are looking for 1: biologically 2: mechanically/ physically. Nothing quite like it in the world. Please do consider one for your garden or a friend. Or at the very least please tell someone who you think would love one. #englishgarden #walledgarden #naturalbeekeeping #kitchengarden #beesaving #strawberry #strawberryfarmer #gyo #beesfordevelopment #bbcawards #bbcgardenersworld #montydog #richardbranson #itvnews #bbcnews #gardendesign #gardening #growyourown #beehiveuk #honey #goodfooduk #homecookeduk #gardenflowersuk #orchiduk #gardenbloger #gardenlove #pandprichmond

Whilst I’m impatiently waiting for the eggs in the incubator (only on day 5 out of 21!😩🙈) I thought I’d address the fruits and flowers garden tonight🍒🍓🌱🌷🦔🐝 . . I’ve potted on two varieties of lavender, and a new purple perennial (you can tell I’m more into crops not decoration by not knowing it’s name 🙈😂). . . My sunshine magnolias (2nd pic) are also finally coming through! All the raspberries and strawberries are growing like weeds too this year. I just love the life that springs up at this time of year ☺️🌱🐣 Definitely need to pay some attention to the seedlings at the veg garden this weekend and do some transplanting, thank goodness it a bank holiday 👩🏼‍🌾🙌🏻👏🏻 #gardening #grownyourown #sustainableliving #fruit #herbs #kitchengarden #lavender #pollinators #pollinatorgarden #beefriendly #beekind #savethebees #farmlife

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

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!

Not your average Friday....registered our notice of marriage, tested out my new strimmer and waited with the other plotholders for the controlled explosion of an unexploded WWII bomb, which had caused many local people to be evacuated from their homes. Enjoying golden hour, and being the last person on site ✌️

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! 🤰💙

Mulching a pepper and eggplant bed at BB Garden, Hillsborough, California. When people say their peppers never do well, the first thing I ask is if they mulch after planting them. I’m always surprised at how few people mulch their vegetable beds. In a hot climate like California’s, mulching is absolutely critical. • • • Mulching • Holds in soil moisture and reduces water use. • Protects the soil surface from the baking effects of the sun (and being sterilized by UV). • Cools the upper root crown. • Creates a biologically rich zone just below the mulch that enhances nutrient cycling in organic gardens. Suppresses weed growth—and makes it easier to pull up any weeds that do emerge. • • • We often use the same compost we mix into the soil when we plant on the surface as mulch. That way, we can just cultivate it into the soil at the end of the season, when we prepare the bed for the next crop. We later on about an inch of mulch and spread it around between the plants, then water it in. • • • #growitorganically #organicgardening #bestpractices #mulching #organicgarden #tipsandtricks #kitchengarden #growyourownfood #gardening #vegetablegardening

Like sikkert som at våren gjør sin ankomst, like sikker er min ukuelige optimisme på at mine fingre har blitt et lite hakk grønnere siden sist og sørger for å svi av en liten formue på Plantasjen, - for nok et forsøk på å dyrke min egen lille grønnsakshage på balkongen også denne sesongen! Glemt og fortrengt er alle de mislykkede forsøk fra tidligere tider 🤪. I fjor døde vel halvparten innen sommeren kom, men et lite lysglimt er det jo at en av sitrusplantene faktisk har overlevd vinteren! Kanskje er det håp....? 👍. Jeg har dessuten investert i en selvvannende balkongkasse for å se om dette kan bedre cherrytomatenes levekår. Og i år har jeg i tillegg satset på jordbærplanter som visstnok skal være flerårige! Skal bli spennende å se om de i det hele tatt overlever sommeren først....! 😉. Angående auberginerplanten ble den med på lasset fordi den så så fin med sine flotte frukter. Hva som kan lages av den......se det må jeg vel spørre mr. Google om! 🤣. Ellers har jeg som vanlig fylt opp urtehagen med både oregano, timian, gressløk og basilikum. Og selv om urtene har en lei tendens til å dø fortere enn svint på kjøkkenbenken om vinteren, så skal de ha det at de er svært så overlevingsdyktig på balkongen hele sommeren igjennom, merkelig nok! 😁. . . . #sålengedeterliverdethåp #evigoptimist # # #kjøkkenhage #urtehage #chili #paprika #aubergine #basil #chives #balconygarden #vegetables #gardeninthecity #kitchengarden #eggplant #thyme # #cherrytomatoes #strawberries #timian #basilikum #gressløk #oregano #kjøkkehagepåbalkongen #littlegarden #gardener #hobbygardener #amateurgardener #drivhus #hagenmin #selvforsyning #smallgarderen
