Our little office caterpillar Paisley didn’t enter a cocoon until October, and after the weeks turned to months we realized he must be overwintering. I got pretty invested, checking on him every day. This Spring when he still didn’t emerge, a lot of people thought he was dead, but his chrysalis remained a bright green, and I knew he was waiting until he felt ready. I guess I could relate. This morning I was out for an appointment, and a coworker shared the news that Paisley was now a free butterfly. While I’d wanted to be there for it, that text felt like the sign I needed to start some changes of my own. Hope life outside your pupa treats you well, lil guy. . . . #theythem #pride #hrt #firstdose #genderisaplayground #butterfly #overwintering #catepillar #chrysalis

How delightful! This Criola Sella plant just recovered from a severe #spidermites epidemic. It is one of the plants that I had #overwintering on my office's #windowsill. It did well until this spring when the #mites attacked. Simply taking the plant out into the garden helped! . . . #baccatumchilipepper #baccatumpeppers #Capsicum #capsicumbaccatum #chile #chili #chilihead #chiliheads #chilimania #chilipeppers #chilli #criolasella #gardening #gardenshots #gaertnern #organic #organicgardening #peperoncino #pepperplant

Last year’s geraniums enjoying the outside fresh air along with the rosemary that I took in last autumn. Planting collected seeds from last year’s marigolds, lettuces & more only remind me why I move to live a more wholesome living here in Vermont. It’s just not a vibe, but a way of life. Plus not having to go & buy plants 🌱 for this year’s bounty is priceless. Literally! . While I’m trimming the geranium I will put the cutting in water whereby they will easily grow roots in a sunny window. . . #vermonthomestead #homesteadinglife #makemorewithless #geraniumtips #overwintering #heartandsoulapothecary #plantsthatheal #rosemary #geranium #organicgardeningtips #organicgardening #myvermontlife #vermontlife #growingseasoninvermont #flowerlady

#growtendforage Grow tour, Part III (Trap crops, companion planting, cover cropping & experiments in the garden) My friend Rachel at #windfallarts started the hashtag #growtendforage & asked fellow gardeners to share videos of their projects. She’s a beginner permaculturist, as am I, so I thought this was a fun idea for inspiration. Here’s the third part of mine. #showusyourgarden #permaculture #invasionofprivacy #eattheweeds #foodnotlawns #polycultures #plantdiversity #companionplanting #gardenforwildlife #pollinatorgarden #certifiedwildlifehabitat #trapcrop #seedsaving #swisschard #overwintering #threesisters #yarrow #salsify #lacinatokale #diy #mullein #nativemilkweed #monarchwatch #medicinalplants #somuchhairyvetch

So amazing! We took these caterpillars in way back in October, and I didn't have much hope they'd survive. Especially if they hatched from their cocoons over winter they'd have no where to go. I definitely thought these three guys were dead since its been 7 mos! Then I'm cleaning the classroom and I get this little magical thing happen 🦄✨ I absolutely was going to clear these cocoons from our jar I just hadn't gotten around to doing it. I'm so glad I procrastinated 😀👍🦋 #swallowtailbutterfly #overwintering #natureismagical #homeschool

The first caladium leaf is unfurling! ❤️ I've successfully overwintered caladiums for two winters now (see 2nd pic). They go dormant, and I just keep them in our basement.

Snapdragons!! From our overwintering trial that we did totally wrong, they still produced a very nice harvest 😻 I was a bit behind so they are too mature to sell. Instead, I loaded up some mason jars to spread the love. Some to our bank ladies because they’re so sweet and another jar for @bluemountainpizzabrew because they rock. I still had a few jars to spread throughout the house. It’s funny, most people think we always have flowers at the house since we’re flower farmers but it is actually very rare. We’ll need to invest some time and money into actually doing the overwintering correctly but this proves that it’ll be worth it! This year has shown me that I’m leveling up on this whole farming thing and I am so pumped!! Still so much to learn and do but we’re getting there 💃🏻

Dahlia tubers overwintered! I never got around to dividing them so I just replanted the whole clumps. I stored them overwinter in a root cellar. The only ones that shriveled up into nothing were Rip City, my favorite unfortunately, but a few clumps of those made it through too. I planted these into a new garden space yesterday. V excited to see them showing signs of life since I managed to kill all my dahlia tubers the winter before. #dahlias #tubers #overwintering #ripcity #cornell #amberqueen #calebswhite #gardenflowers

A tale of two kales — one that regrew from a plant grown in the fall that died back almost to the roots over winter and a second that grew from chance seed in the spring. The overwintered plant is WAY ahead of the other one, no contest. By starting kale in the summer for fall growth, rather than in the spring, I get kale over a longer period with the same amount of work. #kale #vermontgarden #veggiegarden #vegetablegarden #gardening #garden #overwintered #overwintering #seasonextension

This is apple blossom antirrhinum that I grew from seed last spring and left with lots of others to overwinter in the border...I just cut them back, didn’t mulch and just left them alone.... they are now looking fantastic and very bushy so lots of flowers yippee!!! Definitely worth leaving some in your border as although they are a half hardy annual they can survive the winter and be a short lived perennial! #instagardens #flowers #antirrhinum #overwintering #halfhardyannual #perennialgarden #newgarden #ilovegardening #bushyplant #flowerborders #flowergarden #iloveflowers

It is believed that habaneros have been around for 8,500 years. Habaneros grew in popularity throughout Mexico and Central America. The worldwide spread of the habanero is believed to be spread by the Spanish towards the end of the 15th century. It wasn't long after that, that the habanero took the world by storm, becoming a staple pepper in dishes all over the world!🔥 ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #pepperjoe #pepperjoes #peperseeds #containergardeing #thp #thehotpepper #habaneros #redsavina #carolinareaper #ghostpepper #exoticpeppers #overwintering #homegarden #capsicum #chinense #7pot #spicy #pepperporn #superhotpeppers

We had all of our herbs overwinter in our planters (tucked into the vestibule for protection worked!!). So much so, we divided and added some more pots. Can’t get enough herbs. I’ve been aching for fresh herbs again. This time we added nasturtiums and much more basil. 😋🌱 Also got a really cool trailing rosemary.

The garden is looking pretty miserable after the frosts. That's the cucamelon tower in the foreground. I've dug up some tubers to store in the laundry and I'll pile mulch over the other plants. I'm equally nervous about both options as I've never overwintered any tubers before. Anyone have any experience? #cucamelon #overwintering #canberra #foodgarden #gardening #growyourownveg

'The Sleeping Partner' . . Earlier in the year whilst on a walk at #thoresbyhall I was fascinated to find these little ladybugs all huddled together on a gatepost! As you can see there is just one of the more familiar ladybugs and that gives us a better idea of how tiny the others are! Apparently they often overwinter like this, hunkered down until the days warm up! After doing a bit of research I found some info on these little guys...the 16 spot ladybird, Tytthaspis Sedecimpunctata, measuring 3mm and found in grassland and meadows! They feed on pollen, nectar and fungi ❤ . . #ladybugs #ladybirds #outwalking #16spotladybird #naturespatterns #patternsinnature #overwintering #getoutthereandlearn #natureisamazing #naturalworld #samsunglover #phonesnaps #dof #photographygroup #thankGodfornature #🐞🐞🐞

At the end of every season, any leftover shrubs or perennials that we didn’t sell get tucked away for the winter - then, every Spring, we wake them up in our greenhouse, and put any that are not-quite-perfect on sale in our discount racks! This weekend is planting weekend, so come have a look while selection is at its best! #dealsdealsdeals

Omg I learned soooo much today! A neighbor #beekeeper came over and showed me how to properly treat my #hive for mites by vaporizing the treatment in. It was fascinating and I’m so glad to have an effective and fairly simple mite treatment tool (which required a jump off my tractors battery) to use from now on. This will greatly increase my odds of #overwintering my #beehives 🐝 I’m excited to learn more and do my best for all my ladies!! #beekeeperlife #honeybees #savethebees #johndeeretractor #nothingrunslikeadeere #farmlife #lesrnsomethingneweveryday

Brought my coconut plant into my room today for overwintering, I’m probably gonna leave it outside next winter as right now it’s only around 1 year old and it may not be used to the dry winters we have #overwintering #plantsofinstagram

Throw back last winter... It was the very first time in 🔟 years that we left our boat in the water during a winter period. Because we got Pepper since August, we took the chance to get to know her during all seasons. Only the nights were so cold that we even wear socks in bed 😂 but we all survived 💪 We really enjoyed the mystique of the cold water and the private islands; it was all exclusive to us for a few months and it was so magical 🔱 Next weekend it will be crowded again and hopefully we can drop these woolen hats 🧶 . . #sailingpepper #svpepper #taling33 #grevelingen #grevelingenmeer #zeelandfoto #zeeland_sky_sun #sailing #boatingseason #boating #overwintering #sailingholland #sailing_feature #privateislands #jacquescousteau

Mid spring bulbs are coming up! Tiny daffodils are here to replace the crocus under the witch hazel. . The yard is full of returning perennials and bulbs. Most notably for me are the lavender that managed to survive the winter outside and my St. John’s wort that I started from seed last year. Good job friends! . Love watching the yard grow and change after a long winter ❄️🌱 #Hypericumperforatum #overwintering #tracychapman

El verde es vida! She is so young you can still see has facial hair LOL. She is part of our new generation of Queens. The mother was a rock star over wintered, gentle, great egg pattern, disease free and honey producer. We have not measured Varro resistance or sensitivity. Last year we introduce Saskatraz stock, Italians from Northern California and we also have a few queens form Hawaii and local queen. Yes California has winters LOL. • • #verde #green #new #generation #newstock #abejas 🐝 #varroa #savethebees 🐝 #savethebees #improving #diversity #wintering #overwintering #breedselection #queenrearing #italian #hawaii #saskatraz #local #🐝 #🐝🐝🐝 #beesofinstagram

I've come to realise I am just a massive fan of overwintering veg! Anything that grows any time of the year is wonderful, but there's a special place in my heart for all the stuff that grows during winter. I've done sprouts, psb and now onions, what else should I try for this winter? #allotment #onions #allotmentlife #redwinter #overwintering

Silver drop eucalyptus is a perennial in zones 9 – 11 per seed vendor websites. I am in zone 7. I tried overwintering the eucalyptus plants by keeping the row covered with agribon AG-19 row cover. When the night time temperatures dropped down to less than 26 degrees, I covered the row also with agribon AG-30. We had a mild winter. There were at least 400 plants. Only 32 silver drop eucalyptus plants survived. So that is an update on the eucalyptus that I overwintered. I probably will just start with fresh seedlings each year. #eucalyptus #seedling #grownfromseed #overwintering #fieldtovase #scentedfoliage #flowerfarming #flowerfarmer #flowergardening #growingcutflowers #locallygrownflowers #ncflowerfarm

Having marjoram throughout the year is quite a treat! While this plant does not tolerate Zone 6b winters, I have found success in overwintering it in my greenhouse. Growing new plants via seeds is easily achieved but I have found that I can speed up propagation by simply utilizing the layering method. - The steps for layering are simple: 1. Identify a branch 2. With a small dibble create a hole that is 1 in deep and 2 in away from the mother plant 3. Gently place part of the branch in the hole - do not break it 4 Add some moist soil on the buried branch and assure that the end of the stem is upright. - Do not disturb the soil and in three weeks you will notice that the branch has continued to grow. At this time you can cut the layered branch (at the point where the branch goes into the soil) and you can transplant it into a new container. Look at the picture and focus between the two dibbles. If you like experimenting try this method to propagate plants at home. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #propagate #majoram #zone6b #overwintering #greenhouse #layeringplants #propagation #propagationstation #hobbygarden #dibble #growthpotential #green

The reason I'm such a big fan of container gardening is that it enables me to move plants inside during bad weather and during the winter months. Which means the plant will stay alive and well. We have heard of a few plants making it to 10+ years! Some towering to over 6 ft. tall. All while staying in a 5 gallon container. ⠀ ⠀ A reason to keep at least one or two of your favorite plants in a container is to get a head start on the harvest for the following year. That way your plant can look like this, just a few weeks after moving it outside! 🌶️ ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #pepperseeds #pepperjoe #pepperjoes #containergardening #thp #thehotpepper #habaneros #redsavina #carolinareaper #ghostpepper #exoticpeppers #overwintering #homegarden @pepperjoes

Dungeon Gardening 🖤 I brought up round 1 of plants from my basement dungeon 😱 . Unheated, 42-50 F, no light. These plants live there 6 months of the year! I don’t have a greenhouse or windowsill space so tough love. They do JUST FINE! 💚 I bring them up to the warmth for 24 hours, then water them with warm water. After the dried out soil is workable again, I will split all the bulbs and repot. . Yes I could unpot them in the fall, but I’m tired then. Harvest is a busy-busy time. I just toss everything in the dungeon and go to bed. . These bulbs all started sprouting awhile back, but I left them. Pineapple lilies (Eucomis), caladium, sweet potatoes, dahlias. Geraniums are hit and miss. Cuttings work better but... 5️⃣ that little bit of green in the stem tells me it’s going to be fine 💚 . 6️⃣ This is a great book for #zone3garden people. Authors are Alice and Brian McGowen. . . #bulbs #pineapplelily #eucomi #dahlia #minnesotagarden #minnesotagardening #overwintering

Overwintered peppers y'all! At the end of fall we trimmed back our peppers and kept the roots and limbs alive (in the garage with little light and water) so we can start the year with FULL GROWN pepper plants! 4 out of 6 made it! 2 jalapeno, 1 bell and 1 lunchbox pepper. We put them in the raised garden after we amended the soil. Popped a few eggplant behind them and BAM they're home ❤ All 4 of them are already filled with leaves at their tops and have buds 😍 Unlike our little baby pepper plants, we can leave those buds on because they will make some great peppers! Frickity Friiick that shit makes me happy! . . . #peppers #peppersgalore #texasgardening #overwintering #overwinteredpeppers #headstart #sofarsogood #firsttimesacharm #gardeningislife #gardening #mygardentoday #raisedgarden #womenwhogrow #womenwhogarden #ilovethisshit
