“When a flower doesn’t bloom, you fix the environment in which it grows, not the flower.” -Alexander Den Heijer 🌷🌼🍃 This is a very wise reminder that if we find ourselves stressed, unhappy, unhealthy, we need to focus on our choices and environment: what can we change to lead a more fulfilling and healthy life? Do we need to change our work environment, our diet, cultivate our spiritual life, etc? I know I constantly struggle to find balance. How about you? #wednesdaywisdom #flowerstagram #flowers #bloom #grow #cultivate #wordsofwisdom #flowerquotes #homeandgarden #garden

Before and after today's project. Not all soils are created equal. This client's garden was overrun with weeds, sand and rocks after a contractor brought in 'top soil'. We put a stop to those weeds before they got established! #weeding #soilmatters #beforeandafter #earthshinegardens

A good few cloves here to plant. I am a little late getting them into the ground but I am sure all will be well. What an incredible plant this is, I read that there have been over 5000 peer reviewed articles done on this little #powerhouse for the prevention of major diseases. I’ve never met anyone who doesn’t love it but there must be someone out there. It’s a funny thing to plant as it doesn’t like touching anything not even the other garlic bulbs planted beside and around it, its not very neighbourly! It loves lots of organic, fresh fertilizer. Once harvested I tie it in bunches and hang it up to dry in the shed. I noticed this years stores kept shrinking and the kids said how great it is they have a constant source of it 😀. I have considered hiding some but I never could as I love it that they use it, it’s organic and just a delicious bulb of goodness. #garlic #superfood #growyourown _________________________________________________ #thegarden #getgrowing #organic #preventdisease #foodismedicine #feedyourbody #healthyfood #healthychoices #sogood #inthegarden #growyourownfood #plantingjoy #healthishappiness #sprayfree #soilmatters #foodshare #foodmatters #healthyeating #inthegarden #sogood #freshisbest #knowyourfood #planting #ourlife #flatlay #garliclovers

I’d love to share nothing but positive uplifting posts on social media but unfortunately we live in a world right now where we are constantly being bombarded by toxins. I am mother of 3 little humans and I care deeply about their health and the health of the world that they will grow up in! As a desperate way to “cure” global warming, the atmosphere is being injected daily with chemicals to create a sunshade💨This will undoubtedly impact every single living thing on earth, right down to the very soil that nourishes us! We are all living through this experiment without consent!

Part of our joy in this property was that there were several fruit trees already planted and at fruiting age. It was a step ahead in what i wanted for our #homestead . Unfortunately, that also means dealing with any potential problems resulting from poor care or site design. This #cherrytree had poor production, and the wounds were obvious. Then #gummosis became evident, which is the amber colored sap bleeding from the tree. At first I thought we could save it by pruning the #treedisease out, but all areas are now displaying symptoms, from small branches to all sides of the trunk and even the suckers. This means we will need to remove the tree. On a larger scale, it has made me question the location and quality of the #orchard . This is not the only affected tree. The young apricot seems to be growing poorly and the leaves look to have shothole. Several plums are showing #blackknotfungus . Also, notice the lichen growing on this tree. Slow growth and excess moisture imply poor soil drainage. So some investigation is going to follow in order to determine if that is the case. Then a solution will need to be tested before more trees are added. We don't have the fortune of lots of acreage to work with, so we need to do the best we can with the current space. #permaculture #permaculturedesign #foodforest #backyardorchard #soilmatters #soiltesting #soilproblem #growyourown #growyourownfood #fruittree #poortree

G A L A C T I C shout out to Bernard @cejsorganicfarms and Ben & Steve @jubileefarms.table for reminding me once again that we have all we need at our feet! It’s not only empowering to pick fruit/veggies/herbs straight from a garden and eat, but it taste 100x better! You can really feel the RA energy in fresh picked food medicine! If you are in the Charlotte area come down to this weekly farmers market it’s ( 500 South Turner Ave ) it’s every Saturday! Get your belly full and your mind on a new wavelength, it’s hard to shop outside of farmers markets for your greens again once you shake hands with the farmers who make your food. If we want R E A L change in our communities and our country we MUST go back to the basics! Support local farmers! We are all we need! “And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.” 🍋🍅🍑🍌🥔🍠🥝🥥🍍🌽🌶🍊🍐🍄🍏🥒🥦🥑🍆🥕🍉🍇🍓🍈🍎☀️✨✨❤️💜🧡💛💚💙☀️✨✨ ______________________________ #thefreequincy #supportsmallbusiness #supportlocal #farmersmarket #changemakers #plantbased #plantseedsoflove #Ra #trusttheprocess #photojournalism #ncfarmers #charlottefarmers #localgrown #freshgreens #sunfood #wearetheworld #weareallweneed #love #planttheseedandwatchitgrow #earthling #human #putyourhandsinthesoil #soilmatters #lovefood #vegetarian #vegan #agriculture #🥦 #veganfood

I hear a lot about the importance of planned and methodical watering regiments...what I’m about to tell you is strictly my opinion and should not dictate how you water.... When a plant is growing unassisted in nature, there is no option of a two day dry time! I do my best to replicate Mother Nature’s touch in this regard.... when they tell me their thirsty I give them water 💦... #startfromseed #cannabis #organicallygrown #mothernature #medicine #givecare #stayirie #prop215 #sb420 #outdoor #sungrown #soilmatters #smartpots #rootpouch #compost #enjoythemoment #garden #justaddwater #planttherapy #naturalremedies #intuition #feelit #rebelrootz

Legs for days 🔥I’m spending my Friday night laying around watching tv with Aslan. She’s such a lovely house bunny. Very chill and friendly. I didn’t know anything about bunnies before I got one but I know now that her super relaxed personality is kind of a rarity! And her 💩 makes the best compost 🙈 . . . . #tropicalvictorygarden #rabbitcompost #compost #girlswhogarden #growagarden #soil #gardensoil #soilmatters #permaculture #bunbun #bunniesofinstagram #bunbunshout #housebunny #bunnygram #rabbitlove #bunnymom #veggiegarden #rabbitsofinstagram #rabbitstagram #ediblegarden #eatwhatyougrow #floridagardening #zone9 #centralflorida #southernbunny

“Unless we put medical Freedom into the constitution, the time will come when medicine will organize an undercover dictatorship. To restrict the Art of Healing to one class of men, and deny equal privileges to others, will be to constitute the bastille of medical science. All such laws are Un-American and despotic, and have no place in a Republic. The Constitution of this Republic should make special privilege for Medical Freedom as well as Religious Freedom”... - Benjamin Rush MD... #medicine #cannabis #freedom #startfromseed #stayirie #givecare #planttherapy #medicalcannabis #cannabissaveslives #organicallygrown #mothernature #naturalremedies #earthcandy #benjaminrush #doasyouplease #rebelrootz #helltopay #compost #justiceforall #enjoythejourney #sb420 #prop215 #thyme #dwarflimetree #smartpots #soilmatters #garden

Somewhere between chaos and control lies the inspiration for this, my "perennial sweet potatoes". This is the third year running and though I tip-toed rather close to shear-total-utter-neglect (official STUN method 😉) here they are once again, triumphing in our Texas heat! No-till beds, regenerative field practices, almost no labor involved and I still harvest a couple hundred pounds of sweet potatoes each fall. Not too shabby for this one-woman farm team, eh? 👩‍🌾 Speaking of, we're still looking for enthusiastic farmers to join our team! It ain't always easy, but it sure is worth the ride y'all.

Bug life. . . What a heartening feeling to sight a variety of bugs thriving. In a patch (ok, a bit larger than a patch) of land, which was brown, dry, with just a few wild bushes and a smattering of trees an year ago. Diligent and rational efforts can bring about a transformation in the soil, and consequently in the surrounding ecosystem. And the best part? The coming together of strangers as a collective to debate, question, learn, make mistakes and work towards fixing some seemingly unsurmountable problems connected with soil, ecology and farming. Working with the soil has an evolutionary and spiritual connection. And this small change does feel like a huge stride. In the right direction. . . @tamarindvalleycollective #tamarindvalleycollective

Common name 'ice-plant' botanical name is Corpuscularia Lehmannii Section of a very old potted plant I found in a Antique Shop in the country town near Mildura. The last photo shows most of it, but couldn't fit it all in the shot. The fronds are aproximately 80 centimetres long...I have carefully repotted it using a river sand, same as what it was originally potted in.. All this for $10.00 pretty amazing price don't you think.. #succulents #succulentlover #succulentcollector #plantsnstuff #succulentart #pottedsucculentsandcacti #vintagelove #soilmatters #succulentsofsydney

Los andosoles se caracterizan por tener arcillas de tipo alofánicas. Los alófanos tienen alta capacidad para retener nutrientes, por eso los andosoles suelen ser buenas tierras de cultivo. Para detectar presencia de alófanos se utiliza NaF y fenoftaleína, la prueba es positiva cuando el suelo se pinta color fucsia. 💕🌱 #suelosvivos #soil #andosol #soilmatters #crops

Compost!? 🍄 Yup. So Austin, TX has started a compost pick-up. I, personally, have never dabbled in composting. From what I read (on the flier), composting... ▫️recycles wastes ▫️adds nutrients back to the soil and helps the soil to maintain moisture ▫️reduces landfill waste ▫️introduces beneficial organisms to the soil that help stave off plant disease ▫️protects the environment So. Here is my stab at contributing to the city effort! 🍄 I’m interested in your thoughts on composting? Likes, dislikes, tips? . . .

El exlago de Texcoco fue desecado artificialmente.La salinidad de sus suelos solo permite crecer algunas plantas adaptadas a altas concentraciones de sal (halófitas). Cerca de este sitio se construye el nuevo Aeropuerto de la Ciudad de México, lo que frenará el rescate del Lago y provocará daños ambientales. #noalaeropuerto #suelosvivos #salinesoils #soilmatters #soil
