Check out the first of my new mini-series on ways to save time on the allotment! Link to the blog is in my bio... This first one is just quickly introducing how #nodig saves me huge amounts of time every year! The picture is of my yearly delivery of spent mushroom compost - an essential ingredient for my healthy rich soil plus my secret to spending more time enjoying my plot... #allotment #gardening #healthysoil #regenerativeagriculture #regenerative #soil #organic #savetheplanet #savetime #timesaving #allotmenteer #allotmentlove #growyourown #eathealthy #enriching #compost #mushrooms #fungi

A splash of colour to brighten up the day. So many beautiful little flowers on the allotment at the moment Each one of these flowers have a vital role on the plot that goes further than just there colour, I have tried to find as many plants that have a companion effect on the vegetables, It helps to increase the diversity of roots in the ground and some even detour pests #soillife #notil #gardenersofinstagram #healthysoil #nodig #alloment #allotmentsuk #allotmentblog #flowerstagram #britishflowers #homestead #somersetallotment

What a difference a couple of days sunshine makes! My De Monica broadbeans are finally ready to pick and the calabrese are heading up nicely. I did two successive plantings of calabrese so hopefully they won’t all come at once. The courgettes are coming on now and despite a very slow this year, the greyhound cabbage are starting to heart up. Looking forward to getting up there this weekend and doing some proper harvesting. #notill #allotmentuk #veggiegarden #permaculture #nodig #growveg #allotment #allotmentlife #growyourownfood #growyourown #broadbeans #favabeans #calabrese #organicveggies

Ghost chilli update! Bit of a dull photo but my ghost chilli plant is growing proper well and has quite a lot of chillies on it. This is the only one with fruit after the others unfortunately died so I'm trying my hardest to keep this one alive 😬 I’ll probably never try these myself as they will be way too hot, I’ll probably just take it to the local horticultural shows and see how it does around August time 👨‍🌾🌶 . . #gardening #gardener #garden #gardeninglove #gardeninglife #lovegardening #greenthumb #greenhouse #allotment #allotmentlife #allotmenteering #allotmentblog #allotmentgarden #allotmentlove #organicgardening #organic #nodiggarden #nodig #vegetablegarden #veggiepatch #vegetables #growyourown #growsomethinggreen #instadaily #gyo #herbs #cooking #allotmentuk #chillies #ghostchilli

Made a seed bed and covered the area at the bottom of the plot with wood chip. I’ll cut out the tarpaulin and cover the remaining grass and weeds with cardboard to act as a base layer and weed suppressor #nodig #allotment #allotmentnewbies #allotmentideas

The first carrots and beetroots! 🥕 I am literally beside myself with happiness and it was just the thing I needed to pick me up after a difficult few days at work. Don’t they look pretty? These are going in the oven to be gently roasted with olive oil and thyme and will be accompanying some peri peri chicken! Because this is what it’s all about - after the backbreaking toil, the heartbreak of bad weather and worse pests, the never fucking ending weeds and the stuff that no matter what you do decides it just ain’t gonna grow - at the end of all that, you get to actually eat the results of your labour. And it’s the best food you’ll ever have. #pardonmyfrench . . . . #food #vegetables #carrots #beetroot #allotmentuk #allotments #allotmentlife #allotment #allotmentsuk #growyourown #growyourownveggies #growyourownveg #growyourownfood #nodig #gyo #allotmentlife 🌱 #allotmentgirl #gardener #gardening #gardeninglife #growyourownfood #vegetables #allotmentsofinstagram #veggies #organic #photooftheday

After ferrying children about this evening, I’ve enjoyed a few minutes tending my veggie bed. Tonight I took the milk bottle cloches off my broccoli and covered the box in enviromesh to protect the plants from caterpillars 🐛 . The first piece I ordered was way to small and this one is too big!!😂 It’s a steep learning curve but I’m really pleased with how the plants are fairing so far. #nodig #organicvegetablegarden #raisedveggiebed #newbieveggiegardener #growfood #growyourown #northpennines

Using the reusable produce bags to protect my blueberries, really having a tough time keeping them safe from all these squirrels. Might have to start trapping, and killing the squirrels, I trapped and removed a few but they just keep coming back, and nothing I have done so far has worked? Anybody have any ideas, I really don't want to kill them but if they eat all my food they have to die because I refuse to buy grocery store food knowing that it causes 10x the amount of animal death and destruction! . . . . #vegans #growfoodnotlawns #makeamericastrongagain #victorygarden #americans #vegan #americanvalues #veganfood #vegancommunity #garden #growfood #growyourownfood #growyourown #suburbanfarm #suburbangardener #permaculture #backtoeden #nodig #foodsecurity #regenerativeagriculture #nature #foodsecurityisfreedom #squirrels #veganproblems #farmers #suburbanfarming #farming #independence #veganlife

I have a bad feeling about my tomato plants. They don't want to grow. Not enough heat. But today leaves seem weak and I am wondering if there is a fungal infection. I have grown tomatoes many times before with great success but at my previous residence.

So after what has been a pretty crud start to the plot this year with all the wildlife damage and rain meaning its looking like a jungle. An actual harvest that isn't rhubarb is very welcome! Our second early potatoes aren't quite ready yet. These few delightful looking spuds (look at that purple 😍) were from 2 plants. But everything else is in full swing. #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

Does anyone else look at the neighbours garden and think the grass is greener on the other side?!🤔?! My allotment neighbour has been gardening his plot (pictiered) for longer than I've been alive! His rows are always straighter, he never seems to have weeds, and never seems to struggle with the typical garden problems the rest of us face! He always has words of wisdom and has been doing 'no dig' and organic for the last 45 years before it was the 'fashionable' thing to do! I love talking to him and watching how his garden develops. My own allotment trip this afternoon ended in tears and a trip to the doctors surgery! My little boy was stung multipul times in the face and arm by wasps - seems we have a nest in the shed where he likes to play. 😭 Thankfully he's fine, although a little sore! #WoodcrestKitchen #Burnopfield #allotment #allotmentlife #allotmentkids #wasps #waspstings #noseyneighbours #overthefence #grassisgreener #allotmentwork #allotmentenvy #beautifulgarden #stunning #allotmentneighbours #neighbour #nature #nodig #northeastfoodbusiness #organic #lovemygarden #gyo #goodfood #eatlocal #localfood #soil #growyourown #homegrown

My second bed of cucumbers with a fantastic layer of armor in the soil from last years corn crop. I had some older seeds that I needed to get rid of so I direct seeded a massive amount of seeds directly into this mess and then covered with some composted manure. Ive been trying to incorporate Gabe Browns techniques for soil health in my little urban farm and the results have been fantastic. No till organic for 3 years. Diverse cover cropping and rotation and intercropping for 2. The number of beneficial insects has skyrocketed and plant health is vigorous. I used to have terrible aphid and spider mite problems and now I can’t find a single one in the entire garden. Check out his book #dirttosoil. It’s a brilliant read and totally applicable from small gardens to thousand acre farms. . . . . . #sustainableagriculture #nodig #notill #urbanfarming #urbanfarm #farm #communitygarden #gardening #gardening_feature #urbangardening #gardensofinstagram #growsomethinggreen #growyourown #nyc #brooklyn #crownheights #organic #raisedbeds #smallspacegardening #permaculture #regenerativeagriculture #gardeninspiration #growfood #farmtotable #allotment #biodynamic #biodynamicfarming

Okra The okra plants I planted are finally starting to take off, they stayed quite small for a month but I think the roots have gotten down into some quality soil now as they have grown pretty fast over the past week.

Way back in April, on the Easter bank holiday, I planted two types of main top potato ( #picassopotato pic 1,2,3 and #desireepotatoes pic 4,5,6). I top dressed the Picasso’s with a thick layer of grass clippings and the Desiree with the last of the well rotted manure. The the Picasso’s have absolutely flourished! Desiree are still looking good but they’re definitely further behind. I imagine that the grass clippings meant that, when it was hot and dry, the ground was able to retain its moisture and give the tubers a little extra help. Next year I will lay the compost in the autumn in the classic #nodig way and then top dress with grass clippings after the potatoes have been planted. #growingpotatoes #allotment #greenfingers #growingvegetables #growyourown

🍅Pink Berkeley Tie Dye💚 Tomato! By @wildboarfarms This is one of the green ones I picked a few days back to avoid bugs! These are also the ones that my chickens kept flying over my fence to consume while I was at work a couple summers back and I didn’t get to eat ANY! Yup. They tasty! And beautiful! Apparently it’s tomato week around here... but the bugs have halted my zucchini and squash! I’m thinking I’m just gonna replant first week of Aug like I did last year and have Zucs till frost!

Påfyll til de yngste potetene! Jeg låner en rute av parsellnaboen i år. Denne jorden er frest årlig, så nå trenger den å stå i fred og få mer organisk materiale. Flaks at andre parsellanter kaster gresset sitt! #jorddekke #poteter #soilhealth #soil #nodig

So much rain makes the garden grow! And also...all the weeds! It looks like we are growing more grass than veggies. And then the tomatoes caught the blight anyway. I forgot to spray but hopefully I can today and save the ones that are left. There are a fair amount of "okay" plants. And then buy more transplants, and begin again. I should be weeding today per my weekly schedule, but with the rain today, plus a couple of sick kids and not feeling so well myself...probably going to just prep cardboard for laying down later. #hearthandfield #howmygardengrows #growyourown #veggarden #organicgarden #notill #nodig

#notill Vegetable garden install for a client. Started as a mix of aggressive weeds (2nd photo) which were chopped and layed down where the beds would be. Compost covered the weeds and a woodchip mulch was used for walking paths. Transplants give an instant garden but this could have mostly been planted from seed as well. #polyculture

Fig tree is going harddd this year! I haven't had a successful fig harvest in a couple year's, I think because of the wet climate mixed with cold temperatures in the winter the fig tree has suffered considering they are more of a tropical plant. However growth is looking really good this year! Huge leaves and strong branch's! . . . . #figtree #growfoodnotlawns #figs #victorygarden #vegans #fig #tropicalplant #chickensofinstagram #patriotic #garden #growfood #growyourownfood #growyourown #suburbanfarm #suburbangardener #permaculture #backtoeden #nodig #foodsecurity #regenerativeagriculture #nature #foodsecurityisfreedom #nongmo #fruittree #farmers #suburbanfarming #farming #independence #chicagohardyfig

Three dwarf fruit tree guilds (apple, pear, crabapple) planted just six weeks ago in mineral-amended organic compost, populate a southeast pocket of the front garden. Planted as bare root stock from @lecoteaunursery and under planted with insectary herbs like borage, garlic chives and chamomile to keep prey and predator insects in check and help retain moisture. My mini orchard loves it’s sunny alcove, protected from the wind, close to the bees and pollination garden. With annual pruning, the columns between the trees and between the guilds will remain sunny, breezy and open, and fruit will stay well within reach. So far, so good with the urban permaculture plan. #fruittreeguild #insectaryplanting #urbanpermaculture #organicgardening #gardenfarminf #nodig

Best lunch break ever 🙌🏻 Decided now I’ve got my new strimmer I’d take it for a run this weekend so popped to the plot to weigh up the workload. I also wanted to get my bed sorted to I can finally evict these peppers from my windowsill so after A quick trip to home bargains and some bags of compost later - I’ve decided I’m going with the no dig way as I’ve always planned 💪🏻 whilst at the plot checking everything out...I saw some familiar berries poking through the weeds. These are my AUTUMN fruiting raspberries that have suddenly decided to start fruiting...🧐 I got two berries but I’m sure there will be more. This lead me to check my other berries, and hey presto! One strawberry, and a bunch of redcurrants. My hands are absolutely covered in nettle stings for the privilege mind, but I’m over the moon with my first ever harvest ❤️❤️❤️ . . . #ukallotment #allotmentlife #allotmentlove #femalegardener #gyo #growyourownfood #organic #allotment #allotmentuk #growyourown #allotmentblog #vegetablebed #plot #allotmentdiary #allotmentsofinstagram #lazybed #notill #notillgardening #harvest #brambles #overgrown #gardening #organicgrowing #nodig #nodiggarden #couchgrass #weeds #raspberries #strawberries

One of the glasshouses we were kindly gifted had some missing panes of glass. These tomatoes were desperate to be freed from their too small pots so I've recycled a bit of plastic sheeting the previous owners left laying about to block up the holes until we can source some spare glass. #borntobeawomble . #homegrown #vegpatch #allotment #growyourown #growingseason #homemade #smallholding #escapetothecountry #homestead #ourbackgarden #nature #Countrylife #Countryliving #countryside #selfsufficient #harvest #eatwhatyougrow #growwhatyoueat #nodig #allotmentlife #vegetablegardening #raisedbed #greenhouse #tomatoes #reducereuserecycle #upcycle #recycle

Save the bees with sunflowers! The study, conducted by researchers at North Carolina State University and the University of Massachusetts Amherst, showed that two different species of bees fed a diet of sunflower pollen had dramatically lower rates of infection by specific pathogens. Bumble bees on the sunflower diet also had generally better colony health than bees fed on diets of other flower pollens. . . . . . #sunflowers #growfoodnotlawns #makeamericastrongagain #victorygarden #bees #savethebees #americanvalues #honeybees #honeybees #garden #growfood #growyourownfood #bumblebees #suburbanfarm #suburbangardener #permaculture #backtoeden #nodig #foodsecurity #regenerativeagriculture #nature #foodsecurityisfreedom #nongmo #savethebees 🐝 #farmers #suburbanfarming #farming #savethepollinators #pollinators

I picked up a ground cherry transplant from the @wyldecenter plant sale a couple of months back. This is my first time growing ground cherries and it is doing great! The plant is sprawling and spreading on the ground and already has lots of fruits in it. The fruits are sour while green but become deliciously sweet once mature. I have found it best to harvest by waiting until the fruits drop from the plant. This is definitely a keeper and will be grown each year going forward at Tiny Urban Farm. #growyourownfood #homegrown #urbanfarming #urbanhomestead #homestead #springgarden #nodig #squarefootgardening #growfoodnotlawns #groundcherries
