Survivor ~ While she is scarred, she is beautiful๐Ÿงก Heirloom tomato with a significant burn from the intense heatwave that rolled through two weeks ago - temps reached up to 117 degrees in the garden and did some serious damage to many of the plants๐Ÿ”ฅ๐ŸŒฟThe tomatoes growing on the outer vines received bad burns, and some were so fried that their whole outer skin was seared, their insides turned to mush, and had to be removed ๐Ÿ˜ž But I didnโ€™t have the heart to cut all of the burned ones off, and after some TLC, this 1 pound beauty bounced back, ripened on the vine, rocks the sunburn like a badge of honor, tastes delicious, and reminded me that we first need to be tested to allow our resilience to shine through ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ…โ˜€๏ธ #badasstomato #lessons #resilience

Bismillah 16 Juli 2018 Bitter Melon/Bitter gourd ..... 5.ย Helps in weight loss Bitter gourd isย low in calories,ย fatย andย carbohydrates. It keeps you full for longer and hence, it can easily fit in your weight loss plan. In a 2010 issue of a report published in the Journal BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine, it was disclosed that extracts of bitter gourd helped in the dislocation of human fat cells and also hindered the formation and growth of new fat cells. It was further concluded that bitter gourd can be viewed as a natural agent for treating obesity. Karela juice benefits:ย It keeps you full for longer ย 6.ย Boosts your immune system Bitter gourd fights viruses and bacteria andย strengthens your immunity. Itย prevents allergiesย and indigestion. The antioxidants work as powerful defense mechanisms against illness and also help fight free-radical damage that can cause various types of cancer. In 2010, a study was published in the Pharmaceutical Research Journal which stated that bitter-melon has anti-carcinogen and anti-tumour properties. It reduced the risk of prostate,ย breastย andย cervical cancer.

What is it about yellow courgettes? I donโ€™t find they taste much different to the usual green ones, but I love the way they can brighten up a meal! Good job as 4 out of 9 plants are a yellow variety. The beauty of chucking a ton of seeds into some soil after so many failed germinations ๐Ÿ’› . . . #hen #exbatteryhens #chicken #coop #omlet #eglu #smallholding #sustainableliving #allotmentlife #eggs #rescuehens #allotment #growyourown #homegrown #kitchengarden #sustainable #organic #ediblegarden #gyo #gardening #summer #urbangardenersrepublic #harvest #sustainablesprout

First decent harvest of the season. Romaine lettuce, yellow wax beans, tomatoes, a few green beans, purple bell pepper, lemon cucumber, and pickling cucumbers. Do you see that massive cucumber in the right? ๐Ÿ˜‚ There's always that one cucumber or squash that eludes you and grows far too large. . . . . . #thehappygardeninglife #urbanorganicgardener #organicgarden #organicgardening #urbangardening #urbangarden #growyourownfood #growsomethinggreen #garderningphoto #gardenactivist #urbangardenersrepublic #sustainablesprout #gardenersofinstagram #summerharvest #romainelettuce #lemoncumber #cucumber #purplebellpepper #tomatoes #greenbeans #yellowwaxbeans #beans

Every year I always try to pick one or two varieties of tomatoes that Iโ€™ve never grown before. This year I planted a variety called dark galaxy.๐Ÿ”ฎ . The longer the tomato stays on the vine, the darker it gets. And the white streaks and spots you can see starting to form - they get more defined and begin to look like starts in the galaxy.๐Ÿ’ซ . Or this is what is heard is supposed to happen. So far Iโ€™ve eaten them as soon as they turn ripe (and that reddish color) because I am too impatient to wait for true dark tomatoes! ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜‰ . So a red galaxy it is!!๐Ÿ˜‚ . . . #tomato #garden #gardening #plants #plantlife #urbangarden #dirt #veggie #veggies #growyourown #vegetables #vegan #sustainablesprout #organic #healthy #fruit #plantsofinstagram #gardens #mygarden #girlinthedirt #diy #gardenlife #homegrown #greenthumb #instagarden #growyourownfood #bayarea #california #lovegardeners @gardeners

Missinโ€™ my hennies ๐Ÿ”๐Ÿงก . I have been traveling a ton over the last few weeks between work and some fun personal trips but Iโ€™m missing my little backyard farm. I am so thankful to have a chicken and plant sitter that I trust and my boyfriend to take care of things while Iโ€™m gone but I miss checking out new growth in the garden every day and talking to my chickens like a crazy person. Excited to come home after this weekโ€™s travels and stay put for a little bit ๐Ÿงก .

RED CABBAGE . High in fibre, rich in vitamin C and K and a great source of minerals and antioxidants. Red cabbage is one of my all time favourite vegetables, especially when made up into a vietnamese salad as my Canadian buddy so amazingly did or braised with some red wine, fennel seeds and apple. Now I just have to practice patience as it grows!

My first black Brandywine! In just a few days time, a rodent ๐Ÿ˜ก had taken bites out of 6 of my tomatoes, I had to pick this one a couple of days early and let it fully ripen by the window. It tasted delicious with a sprinkle of salt! . Whatโ€™s your favorite Brandywine ๐Ÿ… variety?

Emerald Green Tomatoes I got SO lucky and have a few tomato plants growing in areas that didn't get flooded. I have 4 plants in a small garden now and 3 more on my tomato wall. I have also started about a million new plants, so it might get interesting here in September!

In all the excitement of harvesting my first cabbage (which was absolutely delicious with dinner! ๐Ÿคค), I nearly forgot to share this - my stonefruit #fruitsaladtree is waking up! ๐Ÿ˜ This branch is a plum.

Hosta's are becoming one of my favourite plants to grow in the garden. Which is odd because I hate shrubs so never though I'd go for a hosta!
