Some of our seemingly endless supply of dried shiitakes... We have been experimenting with some different substrates for our mushrooms – coffee, peanut shells, and egg cartons, to name a few. 🍄 These guys will eat anything! 😂⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #learnbydoing #iteration #oystermushrooms #mycology #mushroomcultivation #fungi #urbanmushrooms #mushroomfarm #mushrooms #mushroomfarmer #mushroomhunting #mushroomspotting #mushroomphotography #mushroom #mushrooms 🍄 #mushrooms_of_our_world #shitake #shitakemushrooms #shiitake #shiitakemushrooms #urbanfarming #urbanfarm #urbanfarmer #urbanpermaculture #growyourownfood #canmushroomssavetheplanet

We love these!! We didn't know what to expect from this Gelber Englischer Custard squash from @bakercreekseeds but it's become a favorite! The squash grows quickly and is delicious in stir fry, breaded/fried or in a summer squash soup. Anyone else growing these or any unique summer squash?? . . . . . #gelbersquash #summersquash #rareseeds #squash #farmher #urbanfarmher #urbanpermaculture #growyourfood #homesteading #gardening #urbanhomestead #seedlings #containergarden #backyardfarm #growyourfood #urbanfarm #playindirt #permaculture #gardenlife #kidswhogarden #foodnotlawns

#tbt #thetimewhen I processed my first rabbit in between bottle feeding day old kits. I have been hesitant to post these, but it’s important. It’s mostly important because I eat meat - a decent amount of it, and not always responsibly. Our farming journey has increased my thoughtfulness and mindfulness at the table - especially in regards to animal products; every time, I “thank” my food (fruits, veggies, farmers, the sun, etc.) for their hard work, sacrifice and ability to nourish myself and my family. #farmgirlstrong #farmher #urbanpermaculture #urbanfarming #champagnedargent #pasturedrabbits #humanefarming #premies #farmkidshavemorefun #anatomylesson #thankingallearthscreatures #homesteading #mindfuleating #consciousmeateater #broomstickmethod #theironyofthatdaywasnotlostonme For more (and some delicious rabbit recipes) visit my blog. ✌🏼❤️😊 The Farm @a_table_ensemble

Amazing Devil’s Claw: This is a native plant to the southwest deserts of the United States. It has food crop, practical uses, and medicinal uses. The young pods are edible as well as the mature seeds. I have tried the seeds that resemble sunflower seeds and I plan to fry up some of the young pods this year like fritters. Traditionally, the black fibers have been used in basket making that Tohono O’odham tribe artisans create. Other plants are used like grasses and yucca for alternative design colors. These baskets are amazing works of art! Last, the root can be used medicinally and contains anti inflammatory compounds. These can be found in pill form and found in health food stores. I would like to learn how to extract this from my plants safely for a proper dose level. There is always something new to learn with plants that can applied within the Permaculture lifestyle realm. — - #devilsclaw #nativefoods #nativeplants #desertplants #permaculture #permaculturelife #grownativeplants #plantphotography #plantphoto #wildedibleplants #foodforest #droughttolerantlandscape #droughttolerantplants #permacultura #urbanpermaculture

🌱Permaculture in it’s essence is about stories. Learning to read the stories of the land and world around us. . 🌎Sometimes it takes a much bigger perspective at a different angle than to see the relationship and story that nature is trying to tell. . And its just like learning a language so you can read a book there are rules, guidelines, and laws that nature follows just like language. Once you learn those laws you have the tools to uncover and read their stories. . But without the language, all you can do is guess at the meaning…. #permaculturewisdom #mothernaturerocks

#tbt : exactly one year ago we began our #urbanfarming journey. RECAP: + Lots of lessons learned. - The Hubs (with good reason) “quit.” + & - I have had the experience of burying 3 animals, slaughtering 17 animals and hand raising 6 animals. - It has been extremely challenging at times. ++ My children are now #farmkids and have learned love, loss, anatomy, sustainable ag practices, permaculture design ... I could go on and on and on ... +++ I have never felt stronger, healthier or happier. So, would I do it again? ABSOLUTELY, #inaheartbeat #farmher #farmgirlstrong #urbanpermaculture #urbanfarming #farmfresheggs #pasturedrabbit #ducklings #chickenmamas #farmkidshavemorefun #farmtotable #homesteading #backyardfarm #thehonesttruth #dothingsthatscareyou #dothingsthatmatter #dothingsyoulove .

It's summer. Unfortunately too hot to cook complicated meal.... These are all from my raised garden. If I plan it better, I could harvest enough vegetables for my family. 小さなレイズドガーデンからこれだけの野菜が採れることにびっくり。 家の改装や開業や英会話のレッスン作りが優先され、野菜はかなり優先度が低くなってしまっていて、蒔き時に蒔けなかった種が多かったり、収穫時期に収穫出来ない野菜もあるのが現状です。 が、しっかり計画を立てて、計画通りに密度濃く植えればこのレイズドガーデンだけで家族2人分の野菜はほぼ収穫できるんではないかと思います。 限られたスペースを賢く使うアーバンパーマカルチャー、楽しいです。 (暑すぎて料理を作る気が起きないのが1番の問題) #ediblegarden #urbanpermaculture

#oldiebutgoodie #noscreentime bonus: one-on-one quality time. Let me explain. The little ones played legos by themselves - uninterrupted - for 2.5 hours today. This gave The Oldest and I precious quality time, which happens to be his number 1 #lovelanguage. . We watched the ducklings in their new paddling pool. We picked dandelions for animal treats. We tore, soaked, blended and then made our own paper (with lots of trial and error.) In short, we had true #qualitytime. . Pro tip 1: #trustyourselftrustthechildren Pro tip 2: figure out your child’s #lovelanguage —— http://bit.ly/2qcqFgk Pro tip 3: go with the flow - follow your child’s lead. 😊 And don’t forget: Have fun! #childhoodunplugged #minimalismandmotherhood #urbanpermaculture #mommydiaries #hewillalwaysbemybaby

Moranga squash. Finally we got it right! These beauties are taking off. I had a shrimp in moranga squash dish when I was in my teens and still dream about it. It was delicious. When I saw these seeds at @bakercreekseeds I had to get them. They have beautiful soft leaves that are different than other squash. They are growing in size quickly! I can't wait to see them change from yellow to pink. . . . . . . #moranga #pinkpumpkins #pumpkins #wintersquash #farmher #urbanfarmher #urbanpermaculture #growyourfood #homesteading #gardening #urbanhomestead #seedlings #containergarden #backyardfarm #growyourfood #urbanfarm #playindirt #permaculture #gardenlife #kidswhogarden #foodnotlawns

Jarrahdale pumpkin is coming in nicely! We messed up and didn't put enough flowers to attract pollinators where these vines are growing so we aren't getting many pumpkins on each vine. However, the ones that are coming in are amazing!! . . The kids are learning to be more in tune with food and growing seasons. They are learning the importance of winter squash and why the hard outer shell is pertinent to keeping over harsh winters. How did people survive when they didn't have stores to run to? This is how. The planet has given us all the resources and tools for survival... I hope more people get back to that knowledge more. . . . . . . . . . #farmher #urbanfarmher #urbanpermaculture #growyourfood #homesteading #gardening #urbanhomestead #seedlings #containergarden #backyardfarm #growyourfood #urbanfarm #playindirt #permaculture #gardenlife #kidswhogarden #foodnotlawns #pumpkins #wintersquash #jarrahdale #homeschool #homeschooling #gardenschooling

Many of you are wondering what's happening with Bienestar Oasis in the wake of the disappointing decision made by the Planning & Zoning Board. We've paused all work on our project and will eventually build domes, gardens and have tents for our (and our invited friends') personal enjoyment, probably inviting WOOFers and Work-Away folks to be part of the adventure. (The irony of the decision is that these structures are only prohibited if they're open to the public but legal if they're for our personal use). In the meantime, we're renovating a lovely 108 year old craftsman style house in Bisbee with hopes of including permaculture gardens, rainwater tanks, solar energy systems and greywater re-use. ...sound familiar? #likeaphoenix #renovate #reducereuserecycle #urbanpermaculture #lovethyneighbor #craftsmanhome #homeiswheretheheartis

Eat my shorts. 🐛💩 This is a pair of cotton shorts, a natural fibre, that will in theory break down over time. The reality is it will take a long time in my humble bath farm, but they work as a great worm ‘blanket’ for now and it saves them going to landfill. @1millionwomen has written a handy blog on compostable fabrics - I’ve added the link in the bio

Quelques infos intéressantes sur le potager en carrés : il vous faudra une petite surface, soit un carré de 1,20 m sur 1,20 m, pour cultiver quelques légumes et pourquoi pas, certains fruits. Les principes du potager en carrés ont été énoncés par un jardinier américain, Mel Bartholomew. Il a rassemblé les éléments décrivant cette technique dans son ouvrage Square Foot Gardening, publié en 1981. La méthode est ensuite arrivée en France, notamment grâce à Eric Prédine et Jean-Paul Collaert qui l'ont décrite dans le magnifique livre "L'art du potager en carré". L’idée est de cultiver quelques légumes et autres directement à la maison, sur le balcon, ou pourquoi pas dans un jardin partagé sans que tout l’espace y soit consacré. Le potager en carrés amène des avantages non négligeables : Peu d’espace est nécessaire : une terrasse ou un grand jardin, c’est comme vous voulez/pouvez ! On peut commencer à n’importe quel moment de l’année.On n’a pas besoin d’engrais, ni de pesticides : à vous le jardinage 100 % bio. C'est une excellente méthode pour qui souhaite débuter en jardinage. Les enfants peuvent facilement jardineravec vous. On peut jardiner même avec certains handicaps physiques, il vous faudra juste penser à bien surélever le potager en carrés. #squarefootgarden #potager #urbanpermaculture #life

Scarlet runner beans, edible and ornamental. It also serves as plant support if planted close to tall plant such as tomato, corn and sunflower. So this is three for the price of one deal!! #urbanpermaculture

Vetch is not consumed today but instead used as animal feed, ground cover, green mulch, and means to add nitrogen to the soil. I bet there are many other plants like this, in which human picked up, lived with few thousand years together but never finished the work of breeding. #urbanpermaculture #vetch

Going on vacation? This is how I prepare our plants to survive our absence (up to a week): 💦 Fill a bottle with water and plug the top into the soil. Make sure it‘s stable and that no bubbles appear. Water the plant one last time. If the bottle is still full when you‘re done watering all the plants, you‘re save to go! What are your tricks? 💦 #happyholidays #trick77 #wateringplants #irrigation #balconyplants #physialis #plants #mybalcony #permaculture #urbangardening #urbanpermaculture #balconygarden #plantingveggies #urbangardeningswitzerland #greencity #growingfood #organic #organicgardening #thehappygardeninglife
