Autumn harvest of magic beans. 🌿 The purple beans have been my absolute favorite thing to grow this year. They produce wonderfully with minimal effort, taste amazingly sweet and tender even when left on the plant a little too long, and just look at that gorgeous witchy purple color. Swoon.

Earlier this year I picked like 60 lbs of fresh figs from a neighbors tree, than dehydrated them. Since then they have been in my freezer and although they have a shelf life of 2 years, the last of them disappeared on Halloween. Looking forward to the spring of 2019. #freshpicked #pickyourown #organicproduce #locallygrown #locivore #texasfigs #texasproduce #biodynamic #gardening #fruitforest #fruit #fruitforaging #vegangardening #fruitariangarden #freelancechildrensbookillustrator #whimsicalart #naturalliving #symbiotic #driedfigs

Pumpkin Soup – the classic Halloween soup. We’ve been using this recipe for many years after hollowing out pumpkins to make lanterns. Save some for bonfire night – or make more! 1 medium-sized pumpkin (around 2kg) 1tbsp light olive oil 2 onions 1 L vegetable stock or bouillon 2tsp mixed herbs 1tsp mixed spice (optional) Salt and pepper 1. Scoop the flesh out of the pumpkin with strong metal spoons and roughly chop. 2. Take a large pan and fry the chopped onions in oil over a medium heat for 5 minutes. 3. When the onions are soft, add the pumpkin flesh and fry for a further 5 minutes. 4. Add a litre of stock and season with the herbs, spices, salt and pepper. 5. Bring to the boil and simmer for 15-20 minutes until the flesh is soft. 6. Blend the soup (a hand-held blender is ideal for this) until smooth. If the soup is too thick, add more water. 7. Taste the soup and add more seasoning if required. From our new book: The Vegan Cook & Gardener: Growing, Storing and Cooking Delicious Healthy Food all Year Round.

It’s lovely to enjoy a coffee in my tiny slice of nature. I’ve filled the inside and outside of my apartment with as many plants as possible (it’s amazing).

✨ H O M E ✨ Fall is here. In northern California this means weather in the 70s during the day, and cooler nights (yes, I had to even turn the heater on for the past few days!) This also means the garden on the north side of the house is getting less sun. These sugar pumpkins (which were miraculous little volunteers) haven’t shifted color in weeks. So today I cut them from the plant and am giving them a little sun bath. ☀️ Apparently (thanks, Google) they will continue to ripen with some sun and warmth. Oh. And Rosie says hi. 🐶

Fig and Dark Chocolate Tart – truly heaven-sent, this delectable and decadent tart is so good, you’ll want it every day. It’s gluten-free too, and can be refined-sugar-free depending on the chocolate you choose to cook with. For the base 125g ground almonds 1/8 tsp salt 1/8 tsp bicarbonate of soda 3tbsp date nectar 2tbsp coconut oil, melted For the topping 8 fresh figs 1tbsp date nectar 120g dark chocolate 120ml coconut milk 1. In a bowl, stir together the ground almonds, salt and bicarbonate of soda. After melting the coconut oil, form a well in the middle of the dry ingredients and pour in the coconut oil and 3 tbsp of the date nectar. Combine well using a fork. 2. Place the dough into a tart tin. Using a spoon and/or your fingers, create the tart case by pressing it evenly to the base and around the sides of the tin. 3. Let the dough firm and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes or more. 4. Preheat the oven to 160°C and bake the chilled tart case for 10 minutes. 5. Meanwhile, cut off the stems of four of your figs and slice them into circles about 0.5cm thick. 6. Lay the sliced figs on greaseproof paper on a baking tray and drizzle with the remaining date syrup. Place under the grill for around 5 minutes, until the syrup starts to bubble. Keep a close eye on them to ensure they don’t burn. 7. To make the chocolate ganache, heat the coconut milk in a small saucepan. As soon as it starts to bubble, remove the pan from the heat and add the chopped chocolate. Stir the mixture until the chocolate has completely melted. 8. Once the tart case has cooled, arrange the chopped figs around the base and pour over the ganache. Chill in the fridge for a further 30 minutes or more. Remove the stalks from the remaining four figs and chop into quarters. Once the ganache has set, arrange them on the surface. Slice and serve with vegan cream, ice cream, on its own or with a cup of tea. From our new book: The Vegan Cook & Gardener: Growing, Storing and Cooking Delicious Healthy Food all Year Round.

A very helpful allotment neighbour gave me an awesome idea to collect the spent ‘Cosse Violette’ purple climbing bean pods before I composted the plants and store the beans that had formed inside. These fellas have dried out over a couple of weeks for storage over winter, all they need is an overnight soak and they’re ready for stews and curries alike! #sharingknowledge I’ll definitely grow these again next year, mega yields even during our heatwave summer ☀️ #vegan #vegangarden #vegangardening #vegangardener #metalheadsinanallotment #organic #organicveggies #growyourown #growyourownveg #growyourownveggies #crueltyfreeallotment #crueltyfreegrowing #crueltyfreegardener #organicgrowing #vegangrower #freefood #greenfingers #allotmentlife #veganallotment #govegan #whatveganseat

Our mini garden hall! I’m going to get out and film all of our sprouts because we have a ton of stuff that sprouted and is growing great! So excited to be eating our greens soon! We have some collards that are ready but I like to pick greens right before we eat them. So awesome and satisfying to have fresh greens! Plus anyone can grow them with a little effort 💚 #gardenlife #gardenfresh #pomagranate #squash #jalapeno #woodchipgarden #tucsongardening #arizonagardening #vegangardening #gardeningvegans #growyourownfood

Happy #NationalFarmersDay ! I feel as a society and world we need to appreciate farmers who grow the plants we eat a lot more. They are doing a huge service for us and are usually overworked and underpaid. May we support and appreciate them, encourage more #organicfarming and sustainable food production, and encourage farmers who keep animals to move to plant production instead.

My garlic harvest this year was so poor -note the one where there are just 2 tiny cloves of my favorite variety 😩. I planted way too late last year - mid Dec in SE Michigan and also needed to amend my soil pretty badly. I’m planting this week this year and adding lots of good stuff to the bed. That should help. . . ____ #gardening #homegrownfood #smallgardens #raisedbedgarden #growfoodnotlawns #ediblelawns #backyardgardening #idigmyfood #michigangardening #vegangardening #garlicharvest #growgarlic #ilovegarlic #rrgardensandgourds

No garden posts recently as have been in the garden all the time, making the most of this fine weather, preparing the garden for winter, getting the greenhouse gradually filled with edible plants, taking the nets off the kale, cleaning up the dead kale keaves, showering off the whitefly and spreading a mulch of compost under the kale plants. The greenhouse is getting gradually filled with salads and greens for over winter. Have filled wooden and plastic boxes from the greengrocers, with compost and planted these up with red Solix lettuce and winter purslane and put these on the greenhouse staging, also sowed more winter purslane and some Rouge d'Hiver winter lettuce in wooden trays and planted up a large black tree tub with a mix of perpetual spinach and Swiss chard. The salad in the greenhouse long bed is doing well, maybe a bit too well for over wintering.. we shall see. Outside the leeks and recently planted Swiss chard and perpetual spinach are doing well. Have put the cold frame over some salad plants in the large raised bed and will be covering some other areas of salad and spinach with cloches or enviromesh tunnels as the weather gets colder. I was going to move one or two kale plants into the greenhouse to plant in large pots, but the kale has been badly hit by whitefly and I don't want to introduce that into the greenhouse. The wildlife pond needed clearing and de-sludging... a big job, now done, and now it needs netting to prevent leaves from falling into it over winter. The pond is almost dry, which has never happened before. We have had so little rain in East Anglia over the past few months that the water butts are empty, so have had no rainwater to refill it. Just keeping fingers crossed that the pond will regenerate and repopulate once the autumn and winter rains come.

My man(ny)’s got a green thumb 👍💚 Summer weather is creeping into fall and I know we all complain but the garden is mostly happy (except for our poor beets 😞). This is Friday evening’s haul! I’ve taken to picking the zucchini a little early because otherwise they grow bigger and thicker than @mannyperalon ’s arm and that’s just hard to work with 😅

Missing my homegrown tomatoes something fierce right now. 🖤🍅 Small plot gardening means it’s out with the old and in with the new as soon as fall starts to make room for my cool season crops. Kale, carrots, radishes, brussels sprouts, cauliflower, peas, and I’m trying my hand at beets for the first time this year too! Wish me luck!

Every year it takes me for ages to find the right pair of winter #gardening boots. This year, I made my task soooo much harder by shopping only for #vegan #vegetarian friendly boots. It was such a task that I blogged about it and if you’re interested to find out which of your favourite brands are vegan or non-vegan, check out the latest post on my website. And if you know of anyone making good vegan outdoor boots, be sure to comment below and let me know about them!Thanks 👍

"Party mix" from my mini herb garden. 😃 I love plants so much! 🤩 (Amethyst basil, mojito mint, boxwood basil, curly parsley.) Unfortunately I also have a black walnut tree in the backyard. Black walnut trees, and others like pecan, release a chemical called juglone from their roots that poisons many other plants, to kill off competition, including a majority of common food plants, so while my herbs haven't totally died, they're still within range (about twice the canopy length out from the tree) to be effected. Hence the stunted growth/failure to thrive. Oh well, some is better than none. 😁 #gardens #smallgardens #foodnotlawns #vegangardening #vegangarden #herbs #simplelife #hygge
