I put my strawberry/pineberry runners in a bucket of water in hopes that they would grow roots... and they are! You can see the roots growing in the 2nd photo! I'm going to have like 50 plants next year... from 4 plants! πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ“πŸ“πŸ“πŸ“πŸ“πŸ“πŸ“πŸ“πŸ‘©β€πŸŒΎ . . . #roots #strawberries #pineberry #strawberryrunners #growingroots #clones #thehappygardeninglife #backyardgarden #ilovegardening #foodgarden #garden #gardeningmom #gardening #raisedgardenbeds #gardentotable #homestead #instagarden #ediblegarden #backyardgardener #zone10 #californiagarden #365amb

Heirloom tomatoes are so darn ugly. But they are supposed to be the best tomatoes compared to store bought. I just learned that heirloom tomatoes are the most nutritional and flavorful. The store bought tomatoes are pretty but they have less flavor and have been bred to have uniform size, shape and color for mass production. I now prefer the ugly looking tomatoes. They are good. #tomatoes #vegetables #eat #food #raisedgardenbeds #photography #365photochallenge #365project #project365 #365_today #Project365 #camera #365photos #photos #daily #dailypics #photooftheday

Yesterday I finally bit the bullet and pulled the weeds around my garden. The rocks around my strawberry bed were full of them. Thank goodness it's finally done..... for now. I'm very lucky I didn't get burnt considering how long I was sitting there. Clever me finally realized and covered up. #strawberries #snowpeas #trellis #raisedgardenbeds #salvia #flowers #weeds

::: SUMMER MEMORIES ::: Fall is bittersweet for us, and many other #foodproducers. . . . We love the warm weather and all we can accomplish with our looonnggg days. But come September, we begin to feel pretty tired from the hustle on our #microfarm. . . . Tonight we’re thinking back to all the things we accomplished this year - on top of keeping a baby human alive!! . . . What are you proud about accomplishing this year?? πŸ‘©πŸΌβ€πŸŽ€It doesn’t have to be agriculture related🌈 . . . #raisedgardenbeds #microfarm #growyourownfood #farmery #farmerybrewery #farmerybeer #dewalt #dewalttools #dewalttough #manitoba #winnipeg #wpg #ywg #gardengoals #gardening #gardendesign #chickenproof

This is the good news. We β€”my kids and I β€” had a momentous harvest this year and tonight came home with pounds of carrots and green beans that we will both eat and put up this week. Plus scallions, tomatoes and a few more shishito peppers. It’s a pretty awesome harvest. But the bad news upsets me. I was at the garden to harvest our massive beet crop. The crop we’d cultivated and saved, harvesting a few here and there but saving them for now. I was going to make some to eat this week in salads and with lunches. But others were destined for pickling and putting up and I was so excited for us to have our own beets to eat all through our long Maine winter. But when I arrived at our community garden plot, they were all gone. There must have been 20 pounds of beets still in the ground β€” all stolen. This is the second time this growing season we’ve had a crop stolen and the third time in two years. I love the community garden, but I am so frustrated by the thefts. It’s discouraging and disheartening. My kids are sad. I am too. Why do people do this? Who besides us needed that many beets?? #garden #gardening #communitygarden #raisedbeds #raisedgardenbeds #raisedbedgardening #communitygardening #bangor #bangormaine #heybangor #maine #mainelife

Happy Monday friends. Hope it was a good one!! ✨ Today I am feeling a lot better with a lot more energy!! Got my blood-work back and I’m so grateful my blood looks healthy. It seems what I have going on is indeed a series of severe muscle strains and some good old fashion RICE has been a huge help to recovering well. ✨ I hope that whatever you’re facing today, that you can hold on to hope and get some good people in your corner to root you on πŸ’•

In Final for the installation series - "The five most common mistakes for Raised-Bed gardening". 1) Lining the bottom of the inside of the planter with non-organic material (I.e, garden cloth, weed barrier, plastic, roof shingles, etc). 2) Inadequate soil - soil has compaction or poor water retention issues. OR, was notΒ refreshed properly to replenish the soil. 3) Inadequate or improper watering technique. Raised-beds require being watered every day. If you did your soil properly, it requires daily irrigation. 4) Bad site location - Difficult access, no water source, pets disrupting beds, or sun coverage can make sustaining your garden difficult. 5) Wrong plant for area planted in - Make sure your shade crops are in shade and the same for high sun veggies. Happy gardening! #ezgatesngardens #garden #installation #gardeninstallation #raisedbeds #raisedgardenbeds #raisedgarden #diy #diygarden #gardening #gardeningtips #gardendesign #planter #planterbox #vinyl

Here’s some #pearcompote that I made from #pears gifted to me from @dementiamirth who has a pear tree. I need more canning jars to make more since she’s planning on bringing me more pears later this week! πŸ˜‹ I’m so into this idea of sharing #homegrown produce with friends. I believe this is the way it should be and hope that more people get into it. I’ve share tomatoes and seeds with her in the past and enjoy chatting with her about gardening stuff. #growyourownfood #homemade #preserving #canning #whatveganseat #raisedgardenbeds #squarefootgardening #vegangardener #urbangardener #urbangardening

Flicking thru some photos & I realised that I forgot to sow beets! How good are they, I love them baked & as Beet Kvass - a salty earthy fermented, probiotic rich, liver tonic made using beets. You can find many recipes on the net, if you like fermented tonics & foods you’ll love Beet Kvass, give it a go & let me know what you think.

My wonderful hubby Dan has added to my patch as I complained of wanting more. 15 wicking beds is not enough. I have wanted to add an over the rainbow archway incorporating two 1/2 size cladded wicking beds so I can grow pumpkins and cucumbers over it. Stay tuned for further photos as it grows. Fingers crossed it all goes to plan. πŸ’™πŸŒ»πŸŒˆπŸŒˆπŸŒˆπŸŒˆπŸŒˆπŸŒˆπŸŒˆπŸŒˆπŸ’”πŸ˜’ #applecrate #backyardgardening #crossedfingers #dantheveggiebinman #danmyman #fullgarden #gardenenvy #wantmore #archway #overtherainbow #heartbroken #missyousomuchteddie #archwayforyouteddie #wickingbeds #raisedgardenbeds #gardenwithaview #lovemypatch #sunnydayz #everythinggrowswithlove #forevermissed #pumpkins #cucumbers #yarravalleygardening

The last couple of sunny afternoons Sustainable Gramps (as he was coined by a follower*) and I have been out in the back garden plotting-literally. It was my birthday recently and what did I request as a gift when asked? -another raised garden bed kit to add to the one I already had. With a bit of thinking by both of us, and quite a lot of constructing and digging by him, he has been able to turn 2 beds into 3. Not finished yet but I have already begun adding some "lasagna" layers. Using what we had-old local newspapers to line the base, sifted soil (using an old crate as a sifter), leaf mould from the autumn leaves, some sugar cane mulch, some aged chicken manure (Dynamic Lifter for the Aussies) and some homemade compost, I am slowly (and I mean slowly because my hip is still gradually mending) building up the layers. Sust. Gramps has even kindly offered to make a munchie brigade proof/shade cover if I want. Meanwhile the little covered greenhouse is doing a great job at keeping the possums away from the greens! *Thanks for the name @pepitas.and.pistachios #diygardening #growyourown #lowimpactliving #lowimpactlifestyle #raisedbeds #backyard #raisedgardenbed #raisedgardenbeds #veggiegarden #diyvegetables #plantmother #plantmomma #growfoodnotlawn #birdiesgardenproducts

Infinitely more exciting/satisfying than an Easter egg hunt. Right at half a basketful (a little over 21#), but I’m happy since it was an experiment for us in the raised beds after spring peas.

Harvesting lots of goodies today. Last of the popping corn, from one bed. The glass gem isn't ready yet, not sure if we'll get any from it at this stage, the wind is wrecking it! Loads of cucumbers, did not realise there was this many. Will try to pickle or make a relish from some. Waiting for the rain to stop before I go back out, so much weeding to be done! #harvest

Did a little gardening today. Not a lot.. planted some seedlings after quickly fixing the raised garden bed soil level. Checked on my plants and saw that my sweet peas are racing to the finish line and my lemonade tree is doing greatπŸ€— my passionfruit vine needs alittle tidy up. My raised bed looks alittle nakey atm but it will fill up quickly. Have to plant the fruiting vines still at the back of the bed etc. I also need to plant the seedlings in the pots out the front still. Overall good day!πŸ‘ŒπŸŒ±πŸ‘©β€πŸŒΎ

Surprisingly not too shabby harvest of cucumbers today. The vines look pretty dead but I keep finding cucumbers so I'm leaving them alone for now. Cherry tomatoes are still producing decent amounts every other day.
