A walk through the forest near crater lake... Nature was just showing off! Such gorgeous flowers and examples of self-sustaining, biodiverse, healthy ecosystems. Kris hopes to learn as much as possible from nature and mimic its relationships (and therefore its strength) in the garden(s) on the Frickstead! . . . . . . . . . . #ecology #ecologicalgardening #gaiasgarden #nature #motherearth #summer #oregonsummer #southernoregon #permaculture #permies #plants #lichen #fungus #fungi #soil #soilbuilding #foodweb #pollinators #savethebees #wild #wildflowers #mothernature #garden #gardengoals #sustainableliving #sustainable #regenerativeagriculture

Kabak çiçekletinin dişi ve erkek olarak ayrıldıklarını biliyormuydunuz? Belirgin görülür farkları nelerdir? 1- Çiçeğin sap kısmı: erkek çiçeğinki uzun ve ince, dişi çiçeğinki daha kısadır. 2- Çiçek petallerinin sapa bağlandığı yer. 3- Açık çiçeklerin içi. . Zucchini plants have both male and female blooms, which have distinct, visible differences. New zucchini develops when the male flower fertilizes the female flower, which happens when bees or other insects transfer the pollen from the male flowers to the female flowers. How to Distinguish Between Male & Female Zucchini Flowers: 1- Check the blossom stems. The male blossom has a long, slender stem, while the female blossom is on a short stem. 2- Look at the point where the petals of the blossom attach to the stem. Male blossoms have only a slender stalk, while female blossoms display a small bulbous area, which is the ovary -- an unfertilized zucchini. 3- Inspect inside the open blooms. Only the male blossom has a stamen in the center of the flower. The pollen on the stamen pollinates the female plant.

Tough little dried Olive leaves ready to be sent through the food processor and chopped smaller for tea. I've always tinctured my fresh Olive leaves and have never used them for tea because I was afraid the tea would be too bitter. Recently I read that olive leaf tea is supposed to taste much like green tea only less bitter and more sweet. Well then, better get chopping! 🍃

Another exciting day for the @bastyruniversity Certificate in Holistic Landscape Design (CHLD) students, who collaborated with refugee gardeners from Bhutan to design, propagate and install a traditional medicinal and pollinator garden at Namaste Community Garden in Tukwila! After a community design charrette last fall in which translators helped CHLD students and gardeners connect about plants that were sorely missed from Bhutan, students propagated Korean mint, Chinese licorice, Tulsi, hydrangea and many, many more culturally important plants to install at Namaste for the gardeners to tend and use going forward. After the recent planting this spring, gardeners report that they are already harvesting comfrey to make salves for their chapped hands. Thanks to the @theirc New Roots Program for making this partnership possible! We love seeing medicinal garden design in action! 🌺🌸🌼🌾🌿 @holistic_landscape_program . . . . . . #gardendesign #chld #landscapedesign #landscaping #ediblelandscaping #landscapedesigner #designstudent #medicinalgarden #herbgarden #permaculture #pdc #permaculturedesign #permaculturedesigncourse #permies #permielife #bhutan #bhutanese #plantsofbhutan #namastecommunitygarden #tukwila #refugeeswelcome #togetherwearestronger #irc #ircseattle #newroots #bastyr #bastyruniversity #bastyrgardens #herbalism #herbalmedicine

I needed basil for a zucchini ravioli recipe I was preparing for a group of friends. I didn't have any regular basil so I decided to snip some leaves from one of my many African blue basil plants. It was great, I couldn't tell the difference! I'll definitely be using it more often when I need fresh basil because I always have African blue! That stink bug needs to go though. 🤨 . . #africanbluebasil

The principles of permaculture. Permaculture is not a set of design techniques, it is a way of thinking, a method of approach. This and more open source graphics at permacultureprinciples.com. #permaculture #permacultureprinciples #permies

The first principle of permaculture: Observe and interact. It would have been easy to mistake these raspberries for the himalayan blackberries invasive to our region. Spending time meandering the yard, looking before cutting, helped preserve these high yield plants. Next summer we'll put them on a trellis and have an even better crop. I can't emphasize enough how much value there is in looking deeply at the land you steward; it is likely someone has done work you can build on. The wild rosebuds opened in this vase of water, showing off their beautiful blooms. Will the raspberries ripen the same way? Probably not, but I can't resist an experiment. My leather gloves are now berry stained in addition to being shiny and holey with wear. I am proud of them. #permies #permacultureprinciples

Aaaaaah! The cherries are ripening! I predict that the 2 weeks before we leave for Spain will be madly spent dehydrating greens and pitting and freezing cherries so that nothing is wasted while we are gone (for over 2 weeks...). Hopefully we will be able to time our next big trip better with the yard 😝

Tonight's dinner haul - organic & fresh. Everyone can be self sustainable, dont listen to what the government and big corporations tell you. Start by growing herbs from seeds purchased from a small producer and see where it takes you! We can't become self sufficient overnight but every step we take towards taking back our own lives and supporting the lives of people around us the less control the government & corps have over us. . . . #garden #gardening #gardenactivist #sustainablegarden #gardening101 #gardening_feature #sustainablegarden #ediblegarden #organicveggies #organicgardening #permaculture #permies #growfoodnotlawns #garden #growingfood #thehappygardeninglife #gardenactivist #sustainablegardening #growfood #veggiepatch #veggiegarden #epicgardening #growsomethinggreen #eatwhatyougrow #edenseeds #mountainlife #sustainableliving #homegrownfood #wheredoesyourfoodcomefrom #sustainablegardening #chemicalfreegardening #chemicalfreefood

En de goudsbloem is ook dit jaar de topper van de tuin. Zoveel! Aan de bamboestokken hangen de eerste pronkbonen. Dit jaar voor het eerst dus ik ben zeer benieuwd naar het eindresultaat! Bovendien doen de greppels die mijn broer dit jaar gegraven heeft zijn hun werk goed ✌ .. Lovely #garden so far 🌱

::: Year Two ::: Taking time to appreciate the intricate balance between wild and tame as we settle into the second year on the land. Apples ripening on the branches that we planted last year, last year’s gardens showing off their well-earned fecundity as this year’s new gardens suffer through their infancy. Keith and I experiencing our own microcosm of the land’s cycles as our relationship dynamic shifts. Year one was a sprint, year two we’re resting into the marathon pace of the homesteading lifestyle. . . . . . . . . #homestead #homesteading #homesteading101 #dreamitbuildit #offgrid #rawland #fromscratch #yeartwo #wildandtame #rewild #rewilding #apples #driftwood #driftwoodcreations #sustainableliving #sustainablelifestyle #offgridhomestead #pnwonderland #summer #summerdays #givethanks #cycles #reflections #greenliving #permies #ecologically #olympicpeninsula #liveinbeauty #romanticism #fruitoftheearth

My baby #Bielefelder chicks are growing QUICKLY! Each day they look a bit more like grown-up chickens. They eat a LOT. I chose this rare German breed because they are cold hardy (our winter temps can get down to -40F) and extremely friendly. Some day they will be very HUGE, beautiful birds that lay XL brown eggs. . . . #bielefelderchickens #chickens #chicken #bielefelderkennhuhn #organic #homegrown #chickensofinstagram #rooster #chickenselfie #mngrown #chickenmath #backyardparadise #permaculture #permies #ediblelandscaping

Sorry for being absent online recently! I've been building and throwing and starting a business. But to make up for it, here's a pic of yesterday's hardwork, our new chicken pen! (it's 6'6" tall by the way, no chicken's getting loose on my watch)

It feels soooo good to get caught up on some projects. We've implemented so many things in the last 2 years it is sometimes hard to keep up. These are our blackberries, but they grew up and became fruit bearing while we were working on other things... This means we will have to fight to find our fruit when it is ripe for harvest. There were lots of new shoots this spring so we finally built a trellis and tied up the new, so we can prune away the old at the end of the season. Swipe left for before and after shots of the front and back.

I recently acquired these apple juice x frozen margarita seeds for a specific purpose. I’m hoping I get lucky and get a mom that is Apple juice dominant to become my new strain #demapples. I have several 50 year old apple trees on my property planted in 1977 and I wanted to get a super Appley strain that I will supplement in the fall light dep w fresh squeezed apple juice into the feeding regimen.
