I got a few suggestions on food to regrow from scraps that I have not personally tried. One being Bok Choy- until now. Just like with celery, you just cut the bottom off & stick it in a bowl of water- now I wait. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• • • • • • • • • • • #EdibleLandscapes #EdibleLandscaping #SustainableLandscaping #MasterGardener #GardenCoach #Zone9A #GardenActivist #Houston #HoustonTxBlack #GardenGoals #UrbanOrganicGardener #UrbanGardening #CityGarden #EatWhatYouGrow #GrowOrganic #GetGrowing #EdibleGarden #KitchenGarden #GYO #EpicGardening #GrowItYourself #TexasGarden #TheHappyGardeningLife #GrowingFood #SustainableSprout #GrowFood #VeggieGarden #GrowFoodNotLawns #GrowSomethingGreen #OrganicGardening

About a month ago, I prepared bunch of peppers from both my and Farmer Nancy’s garden for hot sauce. Time got away from me and after 10 days of room temperature fermentation, I put them in the refrigerator to slow down the process. I finally was able to get to them this past weekend. The flavor is amazing, deep and rich. It’s definitely got a very nice kick, but it’s not an unbearable type of burn. . Although, based on this experience, I should note that I should’ve worn a respirator or something. Working with a gallon of fermented hot peppers takes a while to blend, mix, re-blend and jar, which translates to a couple of hours getting pepper-sprayed. OMG. I got a little dizzy and nauseous after a while and had to take some breaks! . 🌶From my yard: Cuban Purple garlic, Ajo Rojo Garlic, Thai Purple garlic, green shiso, grape leaves, Thai chili pepper, Unknown volunteer Serrano pepper, Devil Serrano pepper, Yellow Cayenne Pepper, Kimchi Chili Pepper, Rehza Macedonian Pepper, and Cal Wonder sweet pepper. 🌶From Nancy’s farm: jalapeño pepper, poblano pepper, Anaheim pepper 🌶 I also added onion, mustard seeds, black peppercorns and a touch of sugar to the salt brine. . #fermentedhotsauce #fermentedfoods #foodpreservation #hotpeppers #koreanchili #cayennepepper #koreanpepper #iShopInMyBackyard #iShopInMyGarden #organicgardening #growyourown #gardentofork #farmtofork #gardentotable #farmtotable #urbangarden #growyourownfood #homegrown #urbanfarm #sustainableliving #permaculture #urbanhomestead #biodiversity #thehappygardeninglife #sustainablesprout #kelloggarden #realhensofocgarden #realhensofoccooking #realhensofoc

I am grateful. For blooms that turn to seeds. Little curls of dried life, seahorses from another time. Clustered together, afraid to swim until the first storm. Setting off on their own path, fighting against currents of soil and rain, But their ancestors knew this. It’s in the seahorse-shaped seed’s memory. Setting down in uncharted garden. To break open against the sun. To send down roots. To grow. To bloom. To dance the endless cycle again. For Calendula.

#TransformationTuesday 😜 🌱 Yesterday I cleared out this spent volunteer #watermelon vine growing in this wine barrel and the beautiful (but non producing 🤷🏻‍♀️) Carrizo #squash in the bed behind it. The watermelon gave me 4 good sized ripe melons and a smaller one that wasn’t ripe that the chickens will get to enjoy. 🌱 I’ve got loads of butternut squash growing on the other side of the yard but this one did squat, and now it’s starting to get aphids. This side of the yard is a bit hotter and doesn’t get as much shade as the side with the butternut. Every year I learn more about the different microclimates of my yard and what does well where. 🌱 Well these beds got topped off with some #wormcastings , rock dust, organic fertilizer including kelp and alfalfa meal and fresh soil. Now the fun begins. Bok Choy and radish did very well here last year. I might plant some carrots here too. The wine barrel will get some flowers and herbs for the pollinators 😁🌸🌼

This Equinox has been such a literal & metaphorical harvest in my world. Honoring all that I’m harvesting that I planted months ago, even a year ago. Seeing the spaces I’ve tended carefully flourish and provide. Honoring the fruit that was possible because I stopped tending other things so I could really pay attention to what I wanted to grow. Some things didn’t grow, there are a lot of weeds, and there are some stragglin’ late bloomers in there too. Grateful for this time to take stock of it all and put new intentions into the seeds I’m planting now that’ll overwinter and be tended when the time is right. 💫 SIGH 🍁 Literally, Fella and I are harvesting as many of these muscadines as we can for preserving and freezing. We got DOZENSSS of jars of jelly made this past weekend with the help of a newly “adopted” Southern “mom.” The old fashioned way, no added pectin, and OMG I don’t really even like jelly but this jelly is so good I can’t stop. Muscadine jelly on everything for the foreseeable future. 🤤 Savoring this season... on a piece of freshly made bread. 😉

To the left of the photo you can see the now monsterous Cornus siberica ‘Midwinter Fire’ (dogwood) that I forgot to cut back this year. I grow it for winter interest when the red branches blaze out once the leaves have fallen. They are much more red if you cut it back to a stool every year. Also, I just realised I still haven’t planted my new crocus bulbs... anyone else? . #dogwood #cornus . . . . #thehappygardeninglife #urbangarden #urbanorganicgardener #urbangardenersrepublic #gardenersofinstagram #garden #gardening #mygarden #jardin #potager #greenthumb #tinygarden #smallgarden #kitchengarden #GYO #ediblegarden #londongarden #eatwhatyougrow #dowhatyoulove #myhappyplace #sustainableliving #sustainable #sustainablesprout #organic #organicgrowing #thegoodlife #allotmentlife

I weaved the dead rosemary branches in amongst the old bed head as I’m finding the tendrils seem to cling and hold onto natural materials a bit better .

Apples are such a big part of autumn for me. With a tree that yields hundreds of fruits that I attempt to turn into a hoard of crumbles, pies, stews and cake - the house quickly becomes an apple store! What are your favourite varieties? Of course, I wouldn't have it any other way. Whilst the fresh salads and perishable crops start to teeter off around this time of year - I know that the apples, along with the squash, will keep me from needing to go to the supermarket over winter 😀 . . . . . #apples #apple #gardening #garden #treesofinstagram

Radish, Land Cress and Spring Onion are 3 'quick' crops, sown early Spring and early Autumn for best harvest results during our cooler days. Before I went away, I decided to sow all, in 1 small container. Horray 🙌 all germinated 🌱🌱🌱 . If the outdoor temp starts to dip overnight then I shall just move this container into the Greenhouse with the Winter salad, Spinach, Chard, perennial flower seedlings other herb containers of Coriander, Flat Leaf Parsley and Curly Parsley. You can still sow these seeds, best to do so now, in the Greenhouse, and they will soon germinate and give a crop before frost. .

Good morning dear good people 😘 Tomato is definitely my fave plant to grow. It doesn't take much effort yet produces nutricious fruit 😍 . . Here's some tips for growing tomato: 🍅 it requires full sun spot, means direct sunlight at least 6 hours / day. Remember the key, DIRECT SUNLIGHT. 🍅 place them in good air circulation area. I think every plants love this kinda spot. 🍅 using something strong to support its branches is a must. 🍅 rich soil is the best media for tomato and other fruity tree. 🍅 organic fertilizer regularly given at least every 2 weeks. I use Nafos guano, 1 tblsp / tree. 🍅 give them protection from harmful bug by regularly spraying organic pesticide. I use neem oil once in a week. Low dosage (5ml/L) for protection. Adding its dose gradually by the level of severity pest attack. 🍅 prune unproductive brances and leaves. 🍅 take care of them with a lot of love. Believe it or not, they can feel your touch and intention 😊 . . Have a good day and happy gardening 💕 .

Today was my birthday today so I took the day off work to hang out in the garden. I built a raised bed from an old work bench, cut some green manure and sowed some more, picked 2kg of tomatoes, harvested loads of chard, kale and four measly (but very tasty) raspberries. I also gave the tomatoes their autumn hair cut to help ripen up the last few green ones. All in all, a very enjoyable day in the autumn sunshine! . . . . . . . . #growyourown #growyourownfood #gyo #vegpatch #thehappygardeninglife #instagarden #backyardgarden #mygarden #organicgardening #urbangarden #urbangardenersrepublic #urbanfarming #homegrown #greenthumb #growfood #vegetablegardening #vegetablegarden #gardening #garden #urbangardening #organicgardening #growyourownfood #bristol #urbangarden #urbangardening #kitchengarden #growfoodnotlawns #plottoplate #gardenersworld #sustainablesprout #tomato #kale #chard #autumn

Rise and shine! Bright and early in the patch to harvest greens for breakfast smoothies. For anyone starting out with a vegetable garden, salad greens are a terrific start. They’re so expensive to buy in the shops and yet they can grow like weeds in your garden. They’re an efficient thing to grow and with a shallow root system they don’t need much space to thrive. And the best part is that you don’t need to harvest the whole plant, just pick what you need and leave the rest to grow for next time. I have various types of lettuce, spinach, chard, kale and celery that keep a steady supply of salads and smoothies. Happy gardening! 🌿 #mybackyardharvest #saladgreens

Trying tomatoes again. Haven’t been super successful with them as they seem to always eventually get blight no matter what I do. Hopefully they will do better in the fabric raised bed vs. in the ground. These have been planted for a few weeks now and have grown significantly. Fingers crossed they stay healthy 🤞#🍅

📣 Big'un has been harvested! 📣 I had to wait for back up to get it into the boot of the car. It was dark by the time we did it and looked very dodgy, heaving a blanketed mass into the car... 😁 The main vine had died so it was time to take home! You can see the secondary vines in the background still producing corkers so have left those on. Will be busy for Halloween this year! 🎃 I'll post some more pics later this week, maybe with a few tips if anyone is intruiged! . . . #allotment #plot #growyourown #urbangardenersrepublic #organicgardener #growsomethinggreen #thehappygardeninglife #gdnbloggers #gardenbloggers #kitchengarden #gyo #growyourownfood #knowwhereyourfoodcomesfrom #growfoodnotlawns #farmher #sustainablesprout #maddysgiantpumpkins

Last night I was looking in my spice cabinet and the fennel seeds caught my eye. First thought, I wonder what fennel sprouts would taste like. I threw some into a jar with water and set them aside to soak. This morning as I was getting ready to drain my seeds I noticed that it smelled amazing. Well guess what? That soaking water tastes pretty amazing too! I added a bit of sugar to sweeten it up and am in love! I am already imagining fennel switchel and kombucha..... time to start buying fennel seeds in bulk ❤️

Rosmarinus officinalis var. repens is flowering yet again. This is such a hard worker with no woody legs in sight. Repens means ‘with a creeping habit’. This one might have a specific cultivar name but I’ve lost it. Also RHS says these all belong in the Prostratus Group of rosemary ... not sure we are covering groups in level 2. We are covering families and this is in the Lamiaceae family. Prostratus is so similar to repens; there are loads of names for almost the same meaning. I’m only through the A’s so far in my @rhswisley #latinforgardeners book! #rosemary . . . . #thehappygardeninglife #urbangarden #urbanorganicgardener #urbangardenersrepublic #gardenersofinstagram #garden #gardening #mygarden #jardin #potager #greenthumb #tinygarden #smallgarden #kitchengarden #GYO #ediblegarden #londongarden #eatwhatyougrow #dowhatyoulove #myhappyplace #sustainableliving #sustainable #sustainablesprout #organic #organicgrowing #thegoodlife #allotmentlife

A little Monday morning harvest while the baby takes her morning nap #🍉#🌱 👶🏻 💚 I cleared out the volunteer #watermelon and harvested these last few melons. Also picked a smaller butternut to check for readiness. Since this is my first time growing butternut I’m not 100% sure when they’re ripe. The color and outer skin look ready and the stem was pretty dry. There are a lot of squash on the vines so I don’t want to jump the gun on harvesting. #💚 Two types of #basil needed harvesting too. A traditional Italian basil and a larger leaf variety. Looks like we’re having pesto and squash for dinner tonight 😋 #butternutsquash
