Green leaf lettuces are my favorite lettuces to grow here at Tiny Urban Farm. They always do the best, bolt the last, and are stunningly beautiful. The latter quality always makes me reluctant to harvest from them and they become overgrown each season without fail. When I get overrun by green leaf lettuce, my go to dish is lettuce wraps and that is what I made today. I did a quick stir fry of the two fresh bell peppers with meat and cayenne pepper. The spicy, hot stir fry and the cool lettuce makes a delicious and nutritious combination. #growyourownfood #homegrown #urbanfarming #urbanhomestead #homestead #squarefootgarden #nodig #growfoodnotlawn #igrewthis #yardtotable #homemadestirfry #lettucewraps

Gardening on the cheap tip: check the trash!! You know the old saying, one person’s trash is another person’s treasure. Well, Kristian walked by this loved and weathered wine barrel the other day and sent me a photo and the location, knowing that I’d want to snag it. He knows me too well! We paid $50 each for the other two wine barrels we have in the garden, so I’ll gladly take this freebie and give it a second lease on life as a cute little herb garden! . It came from a fancy part of Santa Monica, so it was likely trashed because it didn’t look pretty enough anymore...but it’s still got years left in our little urban hodge lodge garden! 🥰♻️🌎

This lovely flower is the Columbine, hailing from the buttercup family. Also known as Granny's Bonnet, its leaves often bear the "doodling" of leaf miners (an insect larvae). But the damage usually is not serious and gives the foliage a sort of randomly "variegated" look that may be appealing to some gardeners. A perennial plant found in meadows & woodlands, the flowers of Columbines were consumed by Native Americans as a condiment. The taste is sweet and safe in moderation. However, the roots and seeds are poisonous, so use caution in handling them. Brightly-colored flowers that are tubular hold the most nectar, and are particularly attractive to hummingbirds. These include perennials such as bee balms, columbines, daylilies, and lupines; biennials such as foxgloves and hollyhocks; and many annuals, including cleomes, impatiens, and petunias. Once established, columbine plants are drought-tolerant. This makes them perfect for rock gardens or woodland gardens! 🌳🌸🌱 __________________________ #permaculture #ediblegarden #seattlegardens #edibleplants #urbanfarming #eatlocal #urbanforaging #organicgardening #permaculturegardening #columbine #instaflower

We haven’t been on ig much lately and the reason is we’ve been busy working on our self sustainable microgreen trailer. Our goal is to remodel and repurpose this 26 foot trailer into a fully functional and self sufficient microgreen urban farm. It’s been a blast but we’re faced with the biggest challenge yet, buying and installing a solar power system to power our farm. Its a lot to learn and these systems get expensive. We may have to wait till we can raise the remaining funds needed to buy a n efficient set up. Until then, we will continue to grow our microgreens the good ol fashion way. #urbanfarming #microgreens #cleaneating #farm #farmtotable #nutrients #verticalfarming #smallliving #simpleliving #fresh #container #solarpower #sustainable #natural #futureoffarming

Harvesting the first of the beets and sugar snap peas, and greens for everyone I know (there’s a second basket, not shown.) We also checked on the beehive and the ladies are looking great, building out their home and stockpiling honey. Sadly I forgot to take pictures. Spring is fully in bloom here in New Jersey and we couldn’t be happier. #njfresh #gardenstate #urbanfarming #backyardfarming #backyardbeekeeping #growyourown

And just as quick as they came, they’ve gone. All of our gorgeous tulips bloomed all at once and this week was a mad rush to find them all homes. Thanks to everyone who came by and bought tulips this week! I’d like to be able to take a nap for a few days now but all the seedlings need to get into the ground.... never ending life of a flower farmer 🤦🏻‍♀️👩🏻‍🌾 . . . . . #urbanfarmer #urbanfarming #urbanfarm #cityfarming #buylocal #farmerflorist #flowerfarm #queenstreetwest #trinitybellwoods #flowers #toronto #torontolife #torontoflowers #torontoflowersubscription #tulips #specialitytulips #cityfarm #torontocityfarm

Just a little experiment I did a few months back. Because my soil is so rock filled, I planted some garlic in containers and some in the ground. Look at the difference in roots and garlic size: the first photo, with giant roots and rich color are the ones in containers, and the smaller garlic in the second photo, with very small roots, were grown in the ground. And, the ground garlic was planted a month before the container garlic. I will definitely continue to grow garlic and all of my root vegetables in containers.

Did you know Nicole is a Master Composter Recycler volunteer for the @cityofedmonton ?This week she gave a composting class to Whyte Ave Rotary Club! @whyterotary She brought her indoor worm bin and taught everyone the benefits of keeping these helpful pets and how to keep them healthy. Everyone learnt the basics of composting, how to build an outdoor pile and how to extract the finished compost. We all smelt the beautiful earthy smell of the final product. ⁣ ⁣ The best part? - There is one very 'active' pile on site which let out steam when we prised it open with the fork! 😁🤓 #yegmcr Everyone was brave enough to stick their hand into the centre of the pile and feel the intense heat generated by millions of tiny organisms as they breakdown the organic matter into the perfect soil conditioner. ⁣ ⁣ The Garneau Community Compost Station at Veg in Yeg has space for 6 large piles. The station is open to anyone in the community to bring their plant-based food scraps and paper-based/organic waste - we see people coming in to use it every day! Thanks to Rotary Club and everyone using the station so far who is contributing to reducing the CO2 output of their waste in this way. Climate heroes 🙌⁣🌎 ⁣ We also need to give a shout out to @suzannedennis. She is a Master Composter Recycler who lives in Garneau and has created loads of great waste-reducing initiatives like the incredible @boombagsyeg. She also has a party kit full of cutlery, plates and hand-sewn reusable napkins that she lends out for free to community members to help reduce the waste of catering for a small event like this. So happy we could prevent the use of disposable plates this way! If you'd like to borrow them you can contact Su.⁣ ⁣ Composting is easy and fun. Whether you're an organization, business, family or individual and would like to come to the farm in Garneau to take a free class with Nicole, get in touch! We also recommend taking a trip to Compost' S cool at the John Janzen Nature Centre to catch one of their many free workshops. Find out more at: www.edmonton.ca/compost. ⁣

We started our three sisters garden yesterday evening by planting our first crop, corn! We had four sisters present in each direction as a brother held space for us. We gave thanks to the water that will help these seed sprout and grow tall, to the soil that will nourish the roots, to the sun that will help the grass grow, and to the wind that will pollinate the corn so we can make delicious tortillas! After giving thanks we each took two seeds, put them in the ground in the four directions and watered them with our saliva. Then we continued the planting in a sunwise direction. Feeling excited to tend to these sweet sweet babies & plant the beans and squash in the coming weeks 🌱 • • • We are at the end of our campaign and we still need to $7000 more dollars to build a new multi-stall wheelchair accessible bathroom. Any/all donations are appreciated! Link in bio

They've struck again! This is what happens when you try and be all creative and use twine to construct a bamboo climber thing 😂 Apparently it also makes good nesting material for every bird in the garden lol 🐦 🌿 Literally every one of those junctions was totally tied up and I think there's now two holding the entire thing up now 🤣 Honestly, I think a passing fart could blow it down Going on a hunt to find something less bird fascinating to re-tie it, maybe like some washing line or something . . . . #plantgang #plantsmakepeoplehappy #plantstagram #nature_lover #plantsofinstagram #plantaddict #plantlove #nature #urbangarden #plants #gardening #diy #instagarden #gardener #gardens #gardenlife #greenthumb #urbangardening #instaplants #plant #botany #plantlife #greenlife #propagation #garden #growyourownfood #growyourown #propagationnation #urbanfarming #veggiepatch
