Happy #FlowerFriday friends! We harvested all of our chamomile a couple days ago and have it drying on our herb drying rack in our kitchen along with a bunch of other herbs we trimmed back. But let’s be real, who would be if I didn’t grab a chunk of it and take a pretty pic? Pic or it didn’t happen, right? 🤣 I’m excited to see more color around the garden as I plant more and more flowers each week! Not all are edible, well most aren’t but they either serve purpose for food or for pest control 🌼🌼🌼 #ULBFrontYardHarvests

As time passes, the urgency of nurturing my community with locally grown produce, heightens. It is a massive wave that pushes me every day to show up, to be restless, to improve, to plant the seeds in soil. The best part is that I am not alone, the warriors are many and we are not giving up ✊🏾

Behold Speckled Pea. Pea Microgreens, when planted properly are covered with a layer of dirt. They take the goodness (water) from around them and break through into the world and become something beautiful and good for everyone. Be like Pea. Also they are PACKED with Vitamins A and C, calcium, iron and phosphorus! BTW for all my Keto fam out there, Microgreens are very low in calories. #microgreens #urbanfarmer #coloradosprings #eatclean #urbanfarming #supportlocal #superfood #coloradosprings #coloradohealth #keto #nomad

Our mini #wildflower meadow is one of my favorite places. 💗 If I am being totally honest, it gives me a bit of anxiety from about the end of April through the first blooms. I know how beautiful it will be when the buds begin to burst but it is soooo wild looking until the sprays of each flower type really begin to take shape. Another life lesson straight from the garden I suppose! #urbanjungle #urbanfarmer

Can someone tell me what this is? I've had it in my yard for years. It's been suffocated by a 50 year old ivy plant. thankfully my mom spend some time to clear out the Ivy and this beautiful tree has come back to life. 🌸🌼🌸🌼~ ~ #plantmomma #gardening #obsessed #spring #pnwgardener #pnwgardens #pnw #pnwonderland #columbiariver #gorge #gatewaytothegorge #yourvacation #myhome #pdx #Washougal #washingtonstate #urbanfarmer #greenthumb #secondjob #plantmomma #layout #planning #landscape #beautiful #sunny #love #overwhelming #zone8b #pollinator #flowers

If a flower could speak, what would it say? In the Victorian era, they gave flowers a language. Each blossom had a different meaning and you could send someone an unwritten message with a bouquet. . Knowing this, you can understand the modern world of flowers better! For example, #redroses and #babysbreath were popularized because they mean 'true love' and 'everlasting love' . Some flowers get their name because of their nature ( #daffodil - new beginnings) . Some get their name from their appearance ( #coreopsis - always cheerful) . Some are aesthetically descriptive ( #trillium - modest beauty) . Some are descriptive of their medicinal properties ( #coneflower - strength and health) . Some are romantic ( #tulip - declaration of love) . And some are just weird ( #potatovine - you are delicious) . . The language of flowers is wholeheartedly beautiful, regardless of what you want to say. Feel free to look at others online! Now that #flowerfriday has taught you to speak their language, try to use flowers to communicate with friends, family, partners, or anyone who might pass your front door ( #wisteria - welcome). . . . #flowerfriday #floweroftheday #flowersofinstagram #informationispower #flowerstagram #blooms #blooming #flower #flowers #learnsomething #educational #mothernature #ihavethisthingwithflowers #wildflowers #plantknowledge #urbanfarm #urbanfarmer #Knoxville #tennessee #greatsmokymountains #

I am not going to pretend I know anything about wild mushrooms. So this is not an educational post a foraging. Maybe one day I will get there but until then I will buy mine from the many fantastic local growers. Fun fact my immediate little corner of the world is a big area for mushroom farming. Anyway, I found this little guy as I was checking on my raspberry plants today and it just struck me as so fairytale. Just a little pop of nature + my sense of whimsy + my imagination = a little magic in my day. Just a grown lady checking out a mushroom imagining fairies and talking frogs. Just a typical Friday.

These luffa plants have been through a lot these last few weeks, between earwig/pillbug attacks, unexpected storms, cooler than normal temps, and chickens attacks. But it looks like they are starting to climb and I’m feeling hopeful about beating everyone in @epicgardening ‘s #luffachallenge2019 😈🙃

Aaaand we’re back, for another #sciencefriday. . . Why does pH matter to plants? . . Well first, what is pH? pH, or potential hydrogen, is a reading of the alkalinity, or acidity, of a solution. Especially in a hydroponics greenhouse like ours, where the plants drink their nutrients rather than get them from the soil, pH is particularly important, as it affects the solubility, availability and uptake of essential plant nutrients. Keeping a garden’s pH within range means the plants will have access to the full menu of nutrient ions for optimal growth and productivity. . . In our greenhouse, we shoot for a pH range of 5.5-6, which we measure using an agrimeter. Depending on the reading, we are easily able to alter the farm’s pH using our injector system to dose the nutrient solution with a specific amount of acid. . Thanks again for joining us for this week’s #sciencefriday. This is Altius Farms, have a beautiful weekend 🌞 . . . . . #verticalfarming #indoorfarming #aeroponics #growyourown #greenhousegrown #fromseed #knowyourgrower #urbanfarm #urbanfarming #sustainablefarming #urbanfarmer #altiusfarms #towerfarm #towergarden #growupnotout #ph #sciencefriday #scienceiscool

Here's a little different plant share, sent to us by our friend @thespacedsociety who is trying out a technique for his #durbanpoison called #mainlining. This is done by trimming the top and bottom branches off your plant, and tying the two main branches down to train the plant to grow wide and maximize the intake of light. It creates an equal distribution of energy to help maximize your yield even in a small space! Super cool pics, we love getting these updates from you guys. Make sure you go check out @thespacedsociety and give his page some love. Have a great weekend!!

‘Rain, rain, go away’... . In all honesty, I am loving all of this rain! Everything is green, the spring garden is thriving and lush, the birds are singing their beautiful songs, and the weather is deliciously cool. . Rain, you can stay as long as you’d like! It’ll be hot and dry before we know it, so I’ll hold onto spring as long as possible! . . #utah #gardener #inmygarden #inmygardentoday #fresh #freshflowers #garden #gardener #gardenflower #gardenflowers #grow #growyourown #urbangardens #urbangarden #homestead #homesteader #homesteading #homesteadlife #homesteadliving #organicfarming #organicfarm #urbanfarm #urbanfarming #urbanfarmer #igrewthat

🚫 Cat Defense System 🚫 I don't like cats at the best of times, but especially when they are using my freshly planted garden as their litter box 😫 my wife has googled every non fatal option to deter the neighbourhood cats from visiting us and the sticks seem to be the most effective so far. I'm sure the neighbours think we're crazy covering everything in huge branches but I will protect my baby seedlings!!

I sat down for a fantastic interview with @bootstrapfarmer and we discussed small farm business strategies. Full video link in profile. They dropped some serious knowledge for the channel talking about their farm to chef/delivery/foodtruck etc models along many other topics. There is a lot we can learn from these guys. They also have a fantastic podcast called Bootstrap Farmer radio which dives deep on a lot of farm business topics.

Had to take a break from Instagram to build our chicken coop 😂 our chicks are getting bigger by the hour and we are almost done with the coop. It’s really more like a shed and it’s HUGE! 8’x10’ so the flock will have plenty of room both out and in. ☀️🐓 Walls, siding, and roofing should be done in the next few days, can’t wait for the finished product!! Btw we built this ourselves with no knowledge of building whatsoever! Not too bad for just winging it lmao 😝🏠🌴🐔

•FERMENT• Natural sparkling, fermented tea, full of living probiotics. . I think 16 litres should last us the week 😆 Thanks to the great team at @hummingbirdsnpc for getting us our original "scoby mother" Via @buchikombuchaustralia After months of experimenting and tweaking the recipe we finally have a brew we're happy to stick with. Skipping the second ferment all together and adding the beautiful flavours from the start. 🙌 Loving it! We're a little addicted to fermenting.

A nice low carbon way to retrieve pallets. There's a warehouse that offers them for free down the road so I walk down with my handy yard cart and load it down as much as I feel I can. I live on a side hill and these are near the bottom, it makes for a rewarding physical activity. . . Some of these pallets will be used to build a second compost bin. Others I'll be trying to build some low cost trellises with for my Amish tomatoes and pole beans. . . #urbanfarmer #urbanfarm #pallet #reusereducerecycle #reuse #buildyourown #diy #organicfarming
