These strawberries just won't quit! We found that there's quite a bit of competition for these beauties, though! First the slugs came in and muched down every red ripe berry that ripened. Hit them with my awesome neem, castille soap & nettle juice spray and set some beer traps. Very effective. Then, the crows discovered them and told all their friends. It's never a bad idea to have bird netting on hand! Hit them with a nice physical barrier and the strawberries are mine once again! But these beauties are so worth fighting for! That's why they call it a garden, because you gotta guard it! 🍓 🍓 🍓 🍓 #strawberrypicking #strawberries #growingstrawberries #gardenersofchicago #chicagogarden #gramoftheday #gramyourgarden #gardengains #gardenersdream #urbanfarming #urbanorganicgardener #urbanpermaculture #permaculture #foodforest #foodsecurity #freshproduce #growitorganically #organicpestcontrol #organicgardener #growfoodnotlawns #permaculturegarden #gardentotable #homegrown #forageandharvest

I can’t believe it’s raining - again! 🌧🌧🌧 I have no new pics from today but I do have last night’s garden harvest. . 🌱Swipe to see the labels of what I harvested (yes I’m harvesting turnip tops because they’re all bolting instead of developing turnips!) . 🌱I put it all in a delicious frittata (accept the strawberries obvs!) I steamed the greens for a few minutes before adding it to the skillet, with spring onion. Then added the eggs with small cubes of goat cheese and olives. . 🌱What are you eating tonight? . . #frommygarden #gardentoplate #backyardharvest #ukgarden #ediblegarden #urbanpermaculture #strawberryseason #eatyourgreens #growwhatyoueat #homegrownveggies #homeandgarden #homegrownfood #growyourownveg #growyourownfood #growvegetables #permaculture #mygardenthismonth #lovemygarden #kitchengarden

ELDER. Most already know of the elder-tree’s widely proven immune supporting properties. But let me tell you a different story about Elder. • Anglo-Saxons, the Danish, and other old European societies believed the elder tree was sacred. She has strong feminine associations and throughout Europe it was widely believed that if you took from the tree without first asking the Old Girl permission, the spirit of the Elder-mother who lived in the trunk and who had the power to protect and to harm would befell ill-luck upon the taker. It became tradition to say, “Elder Mother, give me of thy wood, And I will give thee of mine, When I become a tree.” It was considered taboo to burn the sacred woods, but the hollow branches were often harvested to use for blowing on fires to stoke them, and for making flutes and harps. The leaves were dried and hung around the neck or home to protect from evil spirits, and a elder-tree fortuitously growing near a dwelling was believed to protect the home. The flowers and berries were turned into teas, jams, syrups and medicines. As the Church Christianized communities, it persecuted older folk traditions, working to associate them w/negative connotations in order to deter “pagan” cultural beliefs. Christian lore told that Judas Iscariot, the disciple who betrayed Jesus causing his crucifixion, hanged himself in an Elder tree. Lore also told that the Holy Cross was made of elder wood. However, elderwood is light and pourous, & the cross Jesus bore to the crucifixion site was heavy and cumbersome. There is no evidence for either of these claims and it seems even Tree Folklore can’t be protected from misguided intentions. By connecting folk beliefs such as those about the elder tree to Jesus’ death and other evils, the Church attempted making the old ways repugnant. This wasn’t always effective, so the Church blended older traditions with Christianity. This mixing of practices can be seen in the use of the lunar calendar to determine the date of certain Christian holidays such as Easter when we still celebrate fertility with bunnies and eggs, or the continued use of elders shaped into a cross at graves to ward off evil.

Have you ever seen such an insane amount of tomato blossoms?? This is an heirloom tomato from Germany, Blondkopfchen (“little blond girl”). I got the seed from @heirloom_tomato_seeds (tomatofest). It’s a new one for me, I can’t wait to try them. I may have lost 1/4 of my crop but geez, I might make it up with this one plant! 😂 . Happy Weekend y’all! May it be as productive as Blondkopfchen 💚 . . . PS unrelated update: remember how we tried to get @betterhomesandgardens to spotlight a sustainable yard? It didn’t happen. There’s one finalist that is just straight lawn and basically nothing else 😢. Thank you so much for the amazing support though! It meant/means so, so much to me.

The living wall / vertical garden is doing pretty well. Here’s some Permaculture analysis: . What’s working? . ✅The pea shoots seem to be thriving in their compartment. They don’t seem to mind being crammed into a small space. I’m harvesting pea shoots for salads. . ✅The strawberries also are thriving in their compartments, and are happy with restricted roots. . ✅I’ve harvested radish thinnings, radishes of a half decent size, and I’m leaving the rest to flower and set seed so I can eat the pods too. . ✅The dill has grown well and we’ve had multiple harvests. . ✅It is conveniently located next to the water butt for ease of watering. . ✅It gets lots of attention being right by our seating area. It’s easy to take a handful of dill and put it straight on my lunch! . . What’s not worked so well? . ✳️The salad rocket hasn’t thrived at all as I’d hoped. . ✳️The spinach got leaf miner damage so I pulled it out. . . What could I do differently? . ❇️I could multi-sow in modules so that I can quickly replace any crops that don’t do so well. . ❇️I am keeping a record of what crops are thriving in the small spaces, so I can replicate success in future. . ❇️Direct sow more thinly in future, or thin out seedlings more thoroughly to prevent overcrowding. . . #homeandgarden #mygardenthismonth #permaculturedesign #designprocess #howimonochrome #permaculture #urbanpermaculture #homegrownveggies #growwhatyoueat #homegrownfood #ediblegarden #livingwall #verticalgarden #permaculturelife #frommygarden #backgarden #patiogardening #patiodecor #patiostyle #growyourownveg #growyourownfood #gardentoplate #eatwhatyougrow

Was over in Greenpoint this past weekend working with the Newtown Creek Alliance ( @newtowncreek ) and National Wildlife Federation’s ( @nationalwildlife ) Eco-Schools ( @ecoschoolsnyc ) program installing mycelium enriched soil and native plants to create a meadow over at Manhattan Avenue Park. 🍄 Right before we started work on to apply compost, soil, and mulch on the base of a tree, I noticed a newly hatched baby bird on the ground.🌱 It was so young that It’s eyes weren’t even open. Thankfully I was able to scoop it up to safety while wearing gloves. We located the next and we’re able to return it from the nest which it fell! Wild Greenpoint ( @wildgreenpoint ) captured the moment in action. 🐣 #repost Wildlife hero alert! Last weekend during the planting day at Manhattan Ave Street End Park, @nyc.myc found a tiny nestling underneath a tree. Thankfully, the baby bird (a mockingbird) was gently scooped up and placed back in its very high nest, with help from @nameiswillis (who had to stand on a table and a bucket!). The mockingbird parents were nearby, and they hopped back into the tree soon after the nestling was returned. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #greenpoint #urbanwildlife #mockingbird #nestling #birdsofnyc #birdingny #birdingnyc #manhattanavenue #northbrooklyn #birdrescue #becareful #wildlifeheroes #floof #brooklyn #babybird #ecology #eco #urbanecology #biology #bio #permaculture #urbanpermaculture #nyc

Not the best footage - it's hard to get the right lighting, but here's a quick sweep to show the progress I'm making with the no-dig bed. I have just put down some grass clippings as a base layer after mowing the lawn today. I'll be working on filling those gaps this week and next and will be popping in the rest of the seedlings. I can't believe I'm actually going to get them all planted this season! I have built up so much soil, that I will actually have to buy some flowers. This area is already unrecognisable from what it was around three months ago, let alone from how it looked when I moved in (overgrown dying grass and dead trees). My real estate agent is in for a pleasant surprise. Transforming this area from scraggly and lifeless, to active, vibrant and abundant took a bit of planning, but not much laborious work. Once this is done for this season, it will be time to start another project! #worksmarternotharder #frontyardvegetablegarden #ediblegardensarebeautiful #growwhatyoueat #eatwhatyougrow #permaculture #permaculturewomen #nodig #nodiggardening #nodiggarden #growyourgreens #foodforestgarden #organic #organicgardens #gardendesign #urbanpermaculture #urbanpermaculturedesign #gardentoplate #gardentotable #gardentofork #sustainablegardening #sustainablegardendesign

Another one from the hospital run. Precious had been gradually getting worse with her sour crop and nothing was working. So as a last resort I tried her on colloidal silver in her water and she's finally come good. She'll still overfill her crop, occasionally, but it's not going sour any more, so it clears through quicker. I usually just need to make sure she misses a meal, and she's good by the time the next meal comes. It means she'll be a permanent resident in the hospital run, but hopefully I'll also be able to take her off the silver occasionally in the future. #ChickenHospital

La ubicación del macetohuerto es tan importante como el sustrato, el riego o la fertilización. Esta caja en 3 niveles está bajo un porche estrecho (no tiene heladas en invierno) y recibe sólo el sol de la tarde, que es el mejor en invierno pero el peor en verano. Hemos probado de todo y lo único que se ha aguantado mas de un año ha sido el romero, que creo es indestructible. Seguiremos haciendo pruebas!! 🇬🇧 In container gardening, location is just or more important than watering or feeding. This container in 3 levels receives only afternoon summer sun (the harshest), but is under a narrow ledge so no freezing in winter and winter afternoon sun (the best) So far, rosemary is the only plant that has survived the test of time and seasons, but then again rosemary is virtally indestructible in Mediterranean weather . . #huertourbano #huertinadetoni #huertoorganico #macetohuerto #huertoencasa #huertogaby #loslocosdelahuerta #permaculturaurbana #urbanpermaculture #urbanorganicgardening #thehappygardeninglife #containergardening

A harvest from my garden of a dried and liquid kind, today. Mounds of dried lavender bunches and buds, some dried bay leaves and another 3.5 litres of 100% cold pressed Organic Tahitian Lime Juice. The kitchen smells divine 😍These are now future ingredients for many lovely things. On another note there is no professional way to take pic 2 I’ve decided. Without a kitchen drone in an invisibility suit that is. Reflection alert. I needed that drone so badly when I did all my kitchen YouTube videos some years ago.

Check out @desert_monsoon_apothecary we make a potent tincture with echinacea🌵 🌵 It's really easy to grow, but it does require the proper conditions to grow in our desert. We've have had success growing it in sub-irrigated planters. It does really well in SIPs. You'll be harvesting huge roots in 2 years 💯🌵 🌵 DM me if you want to learn how to grow your own. I set up people up with gardens that will last for decades. It's not the cheapest option, because I only use the best materials, but you'll definitely get maximum value for your money.💯 💪🏽 #herbalism #herbs #herbalist #plantmedicine #desiertosonorense #SonoranDesert #tucson #arizona #az #southernarizona #foodsecurity #phoenix #tucsonaz #permaculture #urbanpermaculture #notill #soilfoodweb #probioticfarmersalliance #yerba #yerbera #yerbero #belikeabird #wildcraft #grinding #food #life

Bokashi-News 💚 hin und wieder schwärme ich hier von meinem Bokashi-Eimer, den ich jetzt seit über einem Jahr benutze. Im letzten Jahr waren schon alle Beete bepflanzt, so dass ich nirgendwo die Möglichkeit hatte, ihn zu vergraben und vererden zu lassen. Also habe ich ihn in einem separaten Behälter mit offenem Boden gesammelt und im Herbst unter den Obstbäumen verteilt. Der Bokashi, der über den Winter produziert wurde, landete in einem Hochbeet und im Gewächshaus. Immer wieder kamen Fragen von Euch, wie das denn alles funktioniert und ob man tatsächlich einen Unterschied bei der Ernte verzeichnen kann. Also habe ich in diesem Jahr eine kleine Testreihe gestartet, um auch für mich selbst zu schauen, ob sich der Aufwand lohnt. Heute kann ich euch endlich etwas zeigen. Nämlich meine Brokkoli-Ernte. Ausgesät habe ich die Sorte Waltham 29 im März im Haus. Kurz nach der Keimung wanderten die kleinen Pflänzchen ins unbeheizte Gewächshaus. Dort standen sie circa einen Monat bis ich sie Mitte / Ende April in meine beiden Testhochbeete gepflanzt habe. Eins mit Bokashi, eins ohne. Das Ergebnis seht ihr auf den Bildern. Die Beete stehen genau nebeneinander, die Pflanzen sind ungefähr gleich groß. Nur die Köpfe weisen einen immensen Unterschied auf. Sie stehen beide in Mischkultur mit Salat, Blumen und Kürbis (erst kürzlich hinzugekommen). Im Bokashi-Beet steht außerdem noch eine Tomate. Auf dem letzten Bild seht ihr noch eine weitere Pflanze in einem anderen Bokashi-Beet. Auch ziemlich groß 💚 Expertin bin ich natürlich nicht. Ich habe mir alles selber beigebracht und probiere immer gerne aus. Und vielleicht liegt es auch an ganz anderen Faktoren, dass diese beiden Brokkolipflänzchen so unterschiedlich gewachsen sind. Trotzdem werde ich weiterhin meinen Bokashi-Eimer nutzen und mich an der schönen Ernte erfreuen 🌱🌿💚 #gärtnerninderstadt #kleinstadtgarten #sustainable #bokashicomposting #urbangardening #urbanpermaculture #grüninderstadt #permaculture #ediblegarden #essbarergarten #permakultur #growfoodnotlawn #growyourownfood

I am mainly growing cassava plant for its roots, albeit others eat the leaves as basic green vegetables. The plant is poisonous, full of cyanide from its leaves to its roots. However, thorough cooking gets the harmful toxins out, and as such, make it safe to eat. It is a tropical root crop similar to taro and yam and is grown for food in Pacific Island countries, South America, Asia and Africa. Processed cassava products, such as cassava flour and tapioca pearls used for tapioca pudding, are safe because the cyanogenic glycosides are reduced to safe levels during manufacture. It takes about 24 months for the cassava roots to be large. The leaves, however, are ready right away.🍀🌿☘️🍀🌿 . . . #gardeningaustralia #cassavaplant #cassavaleaves #permaculture #permaculturegarden #organicgarden #permacultureprinciples #ediblegarden #ediblelandscape #foodforest #organicgardening #sustainablegardening #horticulture #hugelkultur #brisbanegardens #tropicalplants #tropicalgarden #gardeningtips #gardeninglife #homegardening #homegrown #blissful_aficionada
