I spent the whole winter dreaming of having light pink and light yellow roses, and here we are almost a full year of living here and we're just now finding these light pink roses! Did they even exist before, or are they just another one of my manifestations?! 🌹😁🌹 #manifestation #pinkroses #rosebud #inbloom #springtime #flowergarden #zone4b #maine #westernmaine #homesteading #gardenlife #permaculture #polyculture #hugelkultur #backyardfarm #smallfarm #plantbased #veganic #growyourown #backtoeden #selfsustainable #selfsufficieny #gardensofig

As love grows in the garden so does everything else ... I've heard Buddhist monks make art in the sand because life is temporary. This is our art in the sand. It's nice to have winter time to free up some of that creative energy for other things and to work with the land at a different pace. . #cannabiscommunity #cannabisculture #ganjafarmer #ganjagirls #polyculture #legalweed #legalized #weed #cannabis #cultivator #caligrown #sungrown #sunflower #permaculture #smallfarm #smokewithme #420cali #420 #thc #seedbreeding #seeds #weedmaps #smokeajoint #hightimescannabiscup

Biodiversity allows for balance in the garden and creates a home to the bugs we know and love. This blue dragonfly was lounging under the canopy in the greenhouse, I saw her as I was readjusting the plants for more space. I also saw 4 ladybugs outside in as many minutes!🐞🐉 For me it's the natural way. #Polyculture #biodiversity #goodbugs #pesticidefreegarden #thenaturalway #tastethedifference #cleanandgreen #cannabiscommunity #naturesway #cannabisenthusiast #bringoutthebest #promotehealth #iloveweed #weedfarmer

There was an early outbreak of russet mites at @coveloseedandscion , we handled the situation by spraying organic cold pressed neem, home made citrus enzyme ( thanks for citrus scobi @patternregeneration 🙏🏼🙏🙏🏾 you da man!!) pumpkin fpj, and lots of water in between applications. Now that they are pretty much gone we are introducing Andersoni mites, thanks so much for the recommendation @bugladysuzanne you are an amazing woman 🙏🏼🙏🙏🏾!!. The rest of the pictures are some of the plants that we introduced at @coveloseedandscion last year,all the pollinators that they attract plus other critters seems to really help Whit pest issues, as soon as plants go out into the garden what ever russet where left seem to disappear, but rather safe than sorry so we introduced the Andersoni. #ipm #bugladysuzanne #polyculture #pollinatorgarden #strongertogether #wearemendocino #emeraldtriangle #regenerativecannabis #cannabiscommunity #covelostyle #goldenfiggardens #goldenfiggardenseeds #lovewhatyoudo #bumblebee #demfamily #fpj

NO TILL OKRA LAWN! . . . This strip of the lawn has not been dug. It was instead seeded heavily with 1/4 lb of okra seeds, buckwheat and local castor bean seeds. It has also been interplanted with perennials. I simply started amending this okra-lawn with manures hay, wood chips, food scraps, and compost. Crab grass is difficult to pull but I’m hoping the whole system just works itself out. In another heavy wood chip bed, the weeds gradually became easy to pull after a few months. It will get woodchips and compost sifted in thin layers (hand broadcasted) weekly. The ground “eats” everything. There’s even squash tomatoes and greens coming up here and there 😋 I encourage all you farmers to be thinking about next seasons crop with your practices today and make use of cover crops and so called marginal land. If I can get away with using okra and castor as a nurse crop for establishing perennials I’m never gonna be hungry and my hair will be shiny forever lol. The perennials are obedient plant, Motherwort, sunchokes, elecampagne, tall coreopsis, rattlesnake master, so it’s transitioning towards a native plant / pollinator garden. #donothingfarming #sustainability #nativeplantgardening #weeds #beefriendly #actualnotill #rethinkfarming #reclaimyourpower #foodismedicine #naturebasedpractice #landethics #covercropping #clemsonspineless #onestrawrevolution #baltimorefarms #cooperativefarm #farmerofcolor #qtpocfarmer #intercropping #polyculture #agroecology #intercropping

When we raise chickens on pasture, the pasture THRIVES. We're talking about converting way more sunlight into plants, injecting more organic matter into our soils which causes the soil microorganisms to flourish and rapidly build topsoil. As if that wasn't enough, the soil is also more protected from direct sunlight, helping it to retain soil moisture. And all the added organic matter from healthier root systems makes the soil more permeable and sponge-like, further improving its moisture holding capacity and resilience in the face of hotter, dryer summers. This is just one tiny part of why we raise chickens on pastures. Learn more by reading our recent blog post! Link in profile.

Our second batch of Cherry Lotus, bred here (White Lotus x Glazed Cherries) just broke our farm testing record with some impressive stats. THC 34.04% - Total Cannabinoids 41.16% - CBGA 2.28% - Total Terpenes 2.8% Limonene dominant. This is affirming information for the regenerative cannabis movement, showing the power of the sun, stars, clean mountain water and living soil to create flowers with dynamic, nutrient dense and potent cannabinoids. These flowers were grown with our homestead compost made from simple free ingredients that are byproducts of our farm. The best part is that because these plants were truly healthy, and grown in a diverse polyculture, they had all the tools they needed to naturally fend off infestations. Absolutely no sprays or treatments of any kind were used. Nature gives us all the tools necessary for health and vigor.

Yes it’s possible... 15 year old tree, traditional Greek apricot variety Diamadopoulou, chemical free, hasn’t been fertilised in 10 years, perfect fruit, extremely sweet and tasty, big size for this variety, LOADED with nutritious food (I estimate at least 4 boxes, meaning 100kgs). All professional farmers have something to learn from amateur gardeners like Takis! #polyculture #notill #microbiology #agroforestry

Oh Pluerry, how I luv thee 😘 This Plum/Cherry cross is so super delish. Sweeeet. Normally, I would thin out the fruit a bit (2"-3" spacing), but knee surgery tends to put a damper on orchard tasks. Actually, I'm kinda enjoying a more wild look in my orchard this year. Come Fall, tho, my trees will be getting a nice haircut to bring back some order and foster health 😄

Oh so delicious and sweet even tho it still has a week or two until they are ready to harvest 😳 This wonderful fruit, grown right in my own high brix holistically grown orchard, is truly supreme. Of course it's called Flavor Supreme Pluot!!! Nothing mediocre about this beauty. When the flesh has completely turned a beautiful blood red color, it's ready to devour and savor. Because it has such a high sugar content, the birds get in on the action well before it's tree ripened 🙄 🐦 Can't say that I blame em'.

"Mother Earth is our first teacher. She has informed us that oneness does not equal sameness. She shows us this through the harmonious balance that is held in the rich biodiversity that exists within our world. To achieve oneness we must transcend our differences and embrace the integration of every individual aspect of humanity into the whole, knowing that all healthy systems are comprised of complexity and an abundance of diversity." 🌿 -Sherri Mitchell Weh'na Ha'mu Kwasset . . . #biodiversity #oneness #foodforest #foodforesttheworld #climateactionnow #protectbiodiversity #permaculture #bioregional #biointensive #biodynamic #polyculture #onionflower #womenwhofarm #portlandfarmers #regenerativeagriculture

Pasture Life! The cattle were grazing this field 2 weeks ago. Already it’s green and ready for goats. Goats and cattle are just the beginning of our multi species farm practices. Diversity is the key to a healthy ecosystem and healthy soil. What would you like to see next?? #farmlife #regenerativeagriculture

One of the great regenerative ag leaders, Ray Archuletta, says that “soil is naked, hungry, thirsty, and running a fever.” Since I started gardening in Idaho, about 4 years ago, I’ve learned this lesson the hard way. From 40 degree nights to 90 degree days in the heat of the summer, plus little rain and the chance of freezing any day of the year , the climate isn’t ideal for a lush garden. But basic principles, like cover cropping, polyculture, and mulching have done wonders in just a few years! This was a few inches of dirt on top of river rocks three years ago and with a lot of help from Nature has become a lush garden bed sustaining so much life. This year qi will be home to the corns, beans, squash plants. The buckwheat has reseeded three years in a row, and provided ample seed for healing other areas of the yard. These seedlings even handled a few nights of freezing with just a layer of fabric! I’m amazed at how Nature provides when you spend a bit of time tending the garden 💚 . • . #garden #highdesertgardening #gardening #regenerativeagriculture #threesisters #biodiversity #polyculture #corn #beans #squash #buckwheat #covercrop #soilhealth #nature #grateful

"Glenn" is a beautiful old Florida style mango. Delicious sweet flavor and a slightly spicy after taste, reminiscent of haden. Fiber only directly around the seed. I love Florida mango season! . . . . . . #permaculture #organicgardening #gardening #regenerativeagriculture #homestead #growyourown #tropicalpermaculture #tropicalgarden #tropicalfruit #subtropics #wild #forage #wildgarden #vegetablegarden #floridagardening #eatyourveggies #polyculture #soillife #soilfood #notill #mangoes #mangoseason #lovemangoes
