Sometimes you just have to accept defeat and realize that you won’t be able to grow everything from seed. Chives are one of those plants that I’ve probably spent $20 worth for seeds and have never been able to grow successfully so last year I said F this, these 4” pot nursery starts for $2.50/each are worth a shot. And you know what, they totally were! I transplanted four last Spring and they’ve come back bigger and stronger than ever. Since they act as a perennial here in 9B, I just heavily prune at the end of the season (around December) and they spring back to life by March so we get a good 9 months of harvest from these plants. I added the chives to the raised beds to add more color and they say that planting alliums will help deter some pests (I dunno...they, whoever they are, say a lot that isn’t always true). These plants get about 9 hours of direct sun (8am-5pm) so here’s another one to add to your Sacramento heat tolerant plant list. . . #nofilter #chives #growsomethinggreen #ediblegarden #homegrown #growyourown #gardening #garden #gardentotable #vegetablegarden #springgarden #raisedbeds #raisedbedgarden #backyardgarden #homegarden #urbangarden #urbanorganicgardener #suburbangarden #epicgardening #lovegardeners #getgrowing #zone9 #zone9b #californiagarden #sacramentogardening

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

One of our main reasons to create a garden was to attract as many birds as we could. These wonderful creatures are clear front runners of the voices we were aiming for in our garden. Not only with their varied and beautiful songs but also as they stimulate other senses with their colours across the pallet, and movement across land, wind and water. We have now seen 157 bird species in the garden. Here are 5 of these from 5 different families. Those on the left of the photo are permanent residents. Those on the right are migrant visitors resting here before returning north, linking our garden ecosystem with those far away, showing clearly how local action to conserve biodiversity can result in global impact. On the left top is the Blue-grey tanager (Thraupidae(, bottom the Tropical Flycatcher (Tyrannidae). On the right top the Baltimore Oriole (Icteridae), middle the Summer Tanager (Cardinalidae) and bottom the Yellow Warbler (Parulidae) resplendent in its reproductive colours. #tropicalgarden #tropicalwonders #tropicaladventures #tropicalbirds #tropicalwildlife #gardendesign #gardenwonders #neotropicalwildlife #neotropicalanimals #neotropicalbirds #birdshots #birdangles #urbangarden #urbanwildlife #urbanbiodiversity #gardenbiodiversity #biodiversity #therapeuticgardens #recreationalgarden #voicesofthegarden

When the baby says he wants to plant stuff for playtime, we plant stuff!! 🌱 We busted out the catnip and basil seeds and that boy filled the pots, patted the seeds in, and watered them all by himself! 😍 #futuremastergardener 😉

The rain did a lot of good for my garden, I even have a few tiny tomatoes growing and at least two ears of corn! Its wild seeing some of this stuff grow, I've only ever really seen the end products so it's cool seeing it at all their stages of growth. #gardening #urbangarden #corn #tomato #cucumber #cabbage #garlic

Wow! There are a ton of new people here, High new people! 😎 I thought I would do a little intro since we jumped up in numbers so quickly. I’m Kate, I’m 36 years old and I live in Western Massachusetts with my dog, sun and my boyfriend. I love plants, As you may have noticed.🤪 I have a little Urban Garden that I’ve been doing myself for the last 5 years. But have a lifetime of tutelage under the women in my family. I previous just grew food but now that cannabis is legal in Massachusetts, my little urban garden is now cultivating it. This is our second year and I’m really excited about sharing our journey with all of you. I definitely plan on doing some Cannafood recipes with you in the future also. I originally started this account to share my recipes with friends, but it has now morphed into a plantstagram with some food posts 🤷🏻‍♀️ it’s funny how things work themselves out eh? Welcome and Thank You for the follow! #urbangarden #healthymunchieheroine

Greetings from the Garden 🌱🌻 🌱 ✨ ✨ ✨ Beginning June 1 I will begin my third RAW VEGAN CLEANSE. It’s a 100% plant based diet, no cooked food. Like last year I will share recipes and tips. This year it will be 40 consecutive days. Even if it’s for a day please join ya girl on this incredible journey. Stay tuned for more info. ✨ ✨ ✨ Rainy days are a time when Earth is nourished. Water is an essential element. Give thanks for rain 🌧 providing growth to plant life, deepening their roots. ✨ ✨ Early winter planning came in very handy this year. The garden is feeding me greens 🥬 galore!! (Swipe to see video) all the seeds are flourishing. Soon there will be blueberries, goji berries, strawberries 🍓, and apricots :). 10 slides is not enough! During this time weeding is very important. In order to have a plentiful supply to eat it’s important to continue sowing seeds every 2-3 weeks. ✨ ✨ ✨ I curated into this years garden an abundance of Black Beauty’s and more sunflowers 🌻. I’ve also added some new heirloom seeds such as Lima beans, sorghum plants (great for making flour and molasses), and more. Happy Gardening Familia! Give thanks for womb earth 🌍.

As well as growing lots of lovely flowers and edibles, we want to make our garden and plot friendly to the local wildlife. Last year we put in a small wildlife area in our garden. We created a small pond by sinking a flexi-tub bucket and filling it with water. A year on and it’s full of life! We have at least 2 frogs living in it, as well as water snails. If you build it, they really do come! 🐸🐌 . . . #wildlife #pond #nature #allotment #allotmentlife #yarden #allotmentuk #allotmentlove #allotmentlife 🌱 #allotmentgarden #homegrown #allotmenteer #backyardgarden #urbangarden #urbangardening #veggarden #homegrown #homegrownfood #myhappyplace #gardenersofinstagram #instagarden #gardengram #growwhatyoueat

🌿The @presidentstgreenspace Community Garden is such a magical little place in Park Slope - hands down one of my favorite neighborhood spots. It's almost always open and you never need a key to enter. AND it's got a little lending library to boot 📚 Now the garden needs our help! $6000 is required to fix the garden gate and it is well outside the garden's budget. If you love this little jewel as much as I do, consider donating to paypal.me/presidentstgarden 🍃 . . . #parkslope #parkslopebrooklyn #parkslopeparents #parkslopeciviccouncil #communitygarden #urbangarden #brownstonebrooklyn #presidentstgreenspace

Это необыкновенно красиво!😍 Я не смогла пройти мимо! Полюбила клематисы всей душой! Засадила бы ими весь участок, ходила бы радовалась, наслаждалась😊 Но пока только первый год и она у меня не цветёт. А сорт посадила похожий на этот, цветы будут розовыми, широкими 🌺🌺🌺🌿🍃 #клематис #цветы #арка #весна #лето #дача #дачныйсезон #сад #кустарник #лиана #красота #катенька_огород #вдохновение #garden #gardening #gardenlife #urbangarden #liketime #flowers #flowerpower #bloom #spring

How is your garden going so far? Did you remember where you planted everything last year so you can rotate your crops properly? Did you record when you planted everything so you can make any needed adjustments next year? How about just recording the different varieties your growing this year? There is so much to keep track of when growing a garden! The more you keep track of the better you can fine tune your growing practices and get the most out of your garden! I have so enjoyed using the Ultimate garden planner and journal to keep all my records organized. See mire in my stories.😁 💜You can get your copy via instant PDF download and finally get organized😉 link is in the bio. 💜 WHAT'S INCLUDED: Cover page Month at a glance Week at a glance Seed starting guide Crop rotation guide Pollinator garden planning worksheets (one for each season) Garden layout grid Seed list Harvest tracker 😊 https://www.myrollinghillsfarm.com/store/c3/garden_planner_journal_and_worksheets_PDFdownload
