Chickens got to one of the snow pea boxes (4 plants), this was going to be one of the plants I seed saved from since it is one of the strongest, have 6 I can fall back on though. Wire barrier needed to be held in place better. Mistakes: - not securing wire barrier. - not completely covering corners of boxes #permaculturegarden #indoorgardening #containergardening #organicgardening #urbangardening #gardening #urbanpermaculture #gardeningisfun #permaculturelife #permaculturedesign #snowpeas #food #permaculture #permaculturefarm #thehappygardeninglife #vegetables #green

Meta-Theory Design • Talking about design work that is practical for 3 life periods of the house hold as we’re advocating for (15 years intervals accounting for the dynamic self-interests, the physical capabilities and family members) is the main idea behind this post • We’re discussing concepts so what we did is like dividing the plot into 4 portions (N-E-W-S) then according to our most dominant element impact that is the sun we started to locate the functions of house spaces (kitchen should be away from sun or shaded - living area can tolerate some sun - sleeping areas can be put on sunny areas as they’re use is mainly at night…etc) • The more important to consider in the depth of the analysis of uses throughout the life periods is the future expansion options! The yellow part in the foundation picture indicates the non-construction portion (which is on the East quadrant of the property) left for gardening function and the red indicates the foundation work beneath the pool area where we have linked the foundation of the house with that of the fence… That strategic decision was made possible mainly because of the 3 lifetimes analysis discussed earlier along with the logical reasoning of “why pay now and be in debt for something not necessary now while we can hold the space for later upgrades and be a family cooperative project”, people change so as tastes in activities and interests! • The extent of analysis made it possible for us to create 3 expansion opportunities 2 with complete private solution and 1 with semi-private family habitat. The most important pointer here is that you reduce the potential future headache of expansion by taking all and every infrastructure based utilities to the highest point in the property ((no higher than 15 m above as per Municipal regulations)) and you can refer to the 3D model for the example… of course water tanks are better shaded and service ladder can be accessed from indoors • Please enjoy your design journey! • #thati #selfsufficiency #urbanpermaculture #gcc #kuwait • • *Plans Drawing work credits go to Hamada Consultants and 3D model credits go to The Planner consultancy ((اغلب الترجمة في التعليق اسفله)) 👇🏼

Back with gangchaos at #lolarosgarden my mom place after few days in KL. So happy some old seeds that beyond the expired date still sprouts. So now i have 11 tomatillo baby seedlings from the seeds germination test done on 9th sept. Hope this babies will not get stress, died...hope it continue growing after I've transplanted them in pots. Not sure if my mom garden have space to grow them all here... But now lets just hope this babies survive thanks to gangchaos caring for the seedlings in my most humble seedlab while im away. Haha....Anyway, its not a seedlab...just reused plastic containers, tapes as labels and i use paper towels to germinate seeds. #urbanpermaculture #permaculture #urbangarden #containergarden #potgarden #lolarosgarden #homegarden #ediblegarden

Food for the native birds and bees on a beautiful spring morning in my garden 🌸 A wattle bird is at the top of the cream grevillea in this photo slurping the nectar. Eastern wattle birds, Rosellas, native budgerigars, noisy minors, rainbow lorikeets and the occaisional king parrot and cocky, visit this tree daily at this time of year. The golden queen peach is making bees of all different kinds very happy with its blossoms, and me too! Diversity is true abundance in the garden. #vintagetrish #peachtree #goldenqueen #spring #grevillea #australiannativeplants #bees #australiannatives #australianbirds #peachblossom #bluesky #cockatoo #urbanpermaculture #wattlebirds #naturalgardening #rainbowlorikeet #vintagetrishgarden #homegrownfruit

For a garden that has been almost entirely neglected for a year, there's still a fair amount of edible produce to be found! 🌱😍 Picked these beauties for dinner tonight🍴to stir fry along with the one solitary onion still in the fruit bowl, then mix with a jar of basil pesto I found in the freezer and I'll cook up some pasta to make it a meal. Grocery shopping on the agenda tomorrow! 😀

Shades of green 💚✨ This mornings collection of tomatillos for making up some salsa verde, wild cucumber pods for drying and courgettes to make... well honestly, I still have courgettes piled high in the house, so I'm not too sure what to do with these, but I'll figure out something! I should really have listened to the advice @fromthegrange supplied in her posts and only planted a couple of zucchini plants, instead of the eight I planted... Maybe next year I'll learn my lesson 🤔 . . . . . . . . . . . . . #urbanpermaculture #permaculture #permaculturefarm #homegrown #growyourown #growyourownfood #growmedicine #nutritiousfood #moestuin #potager #potagergarden #notill #nodig #hugelkultur #homestead #slowliving #slowlife #slowlifestyle #seedsaver #farmlife #permies #permaculturefarming #ediblegarden #organicfarming #organicgardening #greenthumb #growfood #gardenchat #groworganic #gardentotable

Je me suis enfin décidé a ramasser les potirons (variété howden) pour enlever le plant qui commence a être couvert d'oïdium (c'est de saison en même temps). Résultat : 26kg de nourriture pour meme pas 50cm2 au sol. Si a grande échelle on ne peut pas s'amuser a fabriquer des hamacs a tous les fruits, dans mon petit potager c'est parfait. Je renouvellerai les citrouilles suspendues l'an prochain c'est certain. #potiron #citrouille #courge #squashes #pumkins #pumkinpatch #potager #potagerbio #potagerurbain #urbangarden #permaculture #legumes #vegetables #cultureenlasagne #organicgarden #urbanorganicgardener #cultureverticale #permaculture #potagerurbain #potager #allotment #plot #backyardgarden #organicgarden #urbanpermaculture #permaculturegarden #recolte #recoltedujour #harvest #harvestoftheday

Spring Meat Chicken Update Week 4: At one week old, they're growing fast! They've nearly doubled in weight from 40g at hatch, and are now eating like crazy. Even with a very low powered electric brooder (18W) and reused materials, we're up to $10.47 in total with food, bedding and electricity, or $2.61 per bird!

Pour commencer la semaine je vous propose un petit tour dans mon potager 🍆🍅🌶🥕pour suivre l'évolution des cultures. Faites défiler les photos 😀. Je vous avais montré mon semis de jeunes pousses début septembre, le voici 17 jours plus tard. Il a survécu aux attaques des escargots. Je les ai protégées avec un filet pour éviter l'invasion. Les escargots 🐌 raffolent des jeunes pousses 😬. Je pense que d'ici une semaine je pourrai m'en régaler 😋. Un semis de betteraves et d'épinards qui poussent tranquillement sous Un paille de tonte de pelouse. Et Oh 😲 surprise une jolie courge, je pense que ce doit être un potimarron ? Une courgette prêtre à exploser 😀 Et pour finir mes tomates qui mûrissent malgré le mildiou qui s'est installé . Bref plein de légumes qui s'épanouissent.

I find soursobs (oxalis pes-caprae) rather pretty, despite them taking over every winter. The whole plant is edible, with each part having different taste aspects. The leaves and stems have the sour, almost citrus like, taste which gives the plant its name. The flower is sour, but also slightly bitter. When the roots start to swell towards the end of winter they have a sweeter taste and the bulbs are nutty rather than sour. #OxalisPesCaprae #EatWhatGrows

Post summer harvest- the dwingling down 9.16.18 A look into Wexfordia: 1.) Harvested the last of the carrots, beets, cucumbers from the summer planting. Collected sunflower and calendula heads for seeds. Harvested Tulsi, lemon balm, and core0psis. Planted some cool crops for under cold frames and experimenting with how long we can grow into winter 2.) & 3.) Both taken today. the sunflower beds, used as food for the birds and bees, cover for partial sun crops, & a natural cucumber trellis + the amaranth beds planted with pa native amaranth and coral fountain amaranth, plus medicinal and herbaous flowers 4.) + 5.) Those same beds photos taken 8.17.18 approx 1 month and 2 harvests between the two photo sets! 6.) It's Tammy hiding between our giant Tulsi bushes!

Egyptian walking onion from top bulbs is growing. I heard in Garlic, even though bulbs are a clone of mother bulb, mutation is quite frequent that new bulb has a slight mutation from the original, and epigenetics that we have yet to fully understand. As a result, the new generation of plants should be more adapted to your climate, well that is what I read. When the climate is changing fast, I think it is essential for people to seek more adapted gene each year. #urbanpermaculture #egyptianwalkingonions #gardening #onion

I just saw little paper wasp came and took the corpse away from spider net. Spider sucks the blood of the insects, and the bloodless corpse is still good enough food for wasp and she took it away. Probably spider does not mind because the net is cleaner. Recycling network of nature is quite well organized. #urbanpermaculture #circleoflife #wasp #spider #recycle

Three unexpected visitors to the #urbangarden 😳 #herpitology says .... ? EDIT: thanks for all the ID help! Harmless Little brown snakes for the win!! (Dekays brown snake specifically thanks @wncbotany 💙) and for all of you worrying about my snake identification skills, please don’t be. Living in these mountains for over twenty years, and farming ten of those, I know the species to watch out for. These guys were obviously harmless, I was looking for definitive ID more than snarky comments. Thanks though!) 💚 #snakeidentification #helpplease ? #snakeid #southernappalachianhighlands #urbanpermaculture #livingunderabucket #shelterfromthestorm #tinybutmighty

L'anno scorso il nostro albero non ci donò nemmeno un caco. I pochi frutti che erano cresciuti erano stati fatti cadere da un'inclemente grandinata sul finire dell'estate. Abbiamo sentito la mancanza di questi frutti che per essere mangiati al momento giusto richiedono anche qualche arte magica. Se sbagli il momento dell' assaggio non te lo dimentichi più e stai lì con la faccia storta e la bocca che sbatte per cercare di toglierti che terribile sapore dalla lingua. Eh, il caco lega. Così si dice. Quest'anno la nostra pianta è piegata sotto il peso dei frutti in attesa di maturare. E quando li vedremo tingersi di arancione sarà ufficialmente autunno. Ma per il momento l'estate non sembra avere ancora voglia di lasciargli il posto. ___ We love persimmons so much and we are waiting for them. When they will get orange, they will be ready to eat... #freeyourfamilylife #creabitus #ecosostenibilitàfamiliare #sustainablefamilylife #whatthehealth #harvest #garden #cleanfood #healthyfood #organicgardening #greenthumb #growyourownfood #growwhatyoueat #autoproduzione #orto #ortosinergico #horticulture #kitchengarden #ecoliving #greenfingers #naturalfood #mothernature #natureinspired #permaculture #farmtotable #organic #ediblegarden #urbanpermaculture

Growing your own organic kale is a simple way to avoid pesticide consumption. You can harvest very young leaves to use fresh in salads or allow plants to mature and use as a cooked green. Kale can be steamed, stir fried or blended into a green smoothie. This is a leaf vegetable high in vitamin A and C, and calcium, among many other vitamins and minerals.☘️🌿🍀☘️🌿🍀 . . . #organicgardening #gardeningaustralia #brisbanegardens #homegrownveggies #homegrownfood #aussiegarden #permaculture #permaculturegarden #kitchengarden #ediblegarden #foodforest #gardeningisfun #urbangarden #fromgardentotable #kale #greenleafyveggies #leafvegetable #leafyvegetables #blissful_aficionada #greenthumb #vegegarden #urbanpermaculture #hugelkultur #australiangarden

My little chooks are loving their ghetto brooder! There's a temptation with backyard farming to buy shiny and new and fancy stuff, but it's a waste. A found plastic tub, some scrap avairy wire, a drink bottle saved from a rubbish bin and some cable ties is all they need!

Staff aren’t the only husk cherry addicts around here!! . This black swallowtail caterpillar is nourishing itself so it can grow and grow! Soon it will form itself into a chrysalis, in which the incredible transformation takes place. About two weeks later, a beautiful butterfly emerges! . The wings of the black swallowtail are mostly black, with two rows of yellow spots lining the edges. The delicate pattern is slightly different on males and females, most notably in the size of the spots. . Share what kinds of butterflies and caterpillars live in your gardens and parks! #stlouis #caterpillar #huskcherries

The fence is gorgeous. Is that a thing? I think it is. It's amazing how much a fence can change a space... especially a small urban garden. See that space on the side of the house? A hog panel archway will be going there as well as a couple fruit trees. We have a food forest planned for that whole side yard that will maximize food production in a itty bitty living space. So.

Troisième année que j'essaie de mettre en place un potager auto-fertile et naturel sur cette terrasse de 8m². Cette année, mise à part l'achat de quelques sachets de graines, d'un sac de terreau et d'un sac de fumier pour les semis, je n'ai rien eut besoin d'autre à acheter. Je peux dire que cette terrasse est presque zéro déchet ! Tout ce que j'utilise c'est de la récup ou des matériaux naturels (pots, substrat, godets, tuteurs, étiquettes, etc...). Il me reste 2 choses assez difficiles à optimiser : le besoin en eau et en espace... #potagerzerodechet #jardinzérodéchet #potagerautofertile #mobilierpalette   #solvivant #potagerbio #lepotagerminimaliste #potagerterrasse #balconcomestible #terrassecomestible #terrassepotager #potagerurbain #agricultureurbaine #permacultureurbaine #permaculturebalcon #urbanpermaculture #permacultureurbanism #potagerenpots #cultureenlasagne #vegetalisonslaville

Our hugelkultur beds are really taking off! We are so pleased to see wild mushrooms sprouting amongst the basil, onions, painted mountain corn, borage, kolrabi, sweet alyssum, beans, peas, kale, yarrow, peppers and (last but not least) cannabis, which means the bed is developing into a fertile and nutrient-rich ecosystem. The raised garden beds work with nature rather than against it! 🤗💚🌳🐛🐞✨ . . #permaculture #cannabis #cannabiscommunity #permaculturedesign #growyourownfood #californiacannabis #cannabisculture #permaculturelife #420 #organic #california #cannabiscup #permaculturefarm #marijuana #cannabislife #growyourown #weedstagram #cannabis420 #permaculturegarden #californiacannabisindustry #cannabissociety #nature #weedporn #cannabisheals #urbanpermaculture #californiacannabiscommunity #cannabiscures #homesteading #weed #garden
