11 years ago I visited my father in laws garden and spied his rhubarb plant - it was so healthy and my joys but I'd never eaten it before. Being an avid permie from the 80s he quickly divided the plant and gifted me a crown. I took that plant from our first home to our second. Before we moved to the farm I divided it again an managed to get 13 crowns which I've planted in one of my boarder garden beds. It's thrived here in the poorest of soils! hopefully I can gift my children many crowns and a childhood of eating this tart delight. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #homestead #homesteading #homesteadlife #harvest #livingthedream #growyourown #growyourownfood #garden #gardening #organicfood #organic #organicgardening #organicgarden #permaculture #selfsufficient #selfsufficiency #homegrown #homegrownveggies #farmgirl #justgrowit #veggiepatch #vegetablegarden #growwhatyoueat #livingofftheland #farmlife #rhubarb

Last year we visted a beautiful organic blueberry farm. After visiting this 1/4 acre farm and saw the abundance that it produced I dreamed of having my own bushes to feed my family. The 8 bushes that are here are more than enough to feed our family but they need to be nursed back to health as they were incredibly over grown! Hopefully next year we can pick more than the few punnets worth that are growing now. . . . . . . . . . . . . . #homestead #homesteading #homesteadlife #harvest #livingthedream #growyourown #growyourownfood #garden #gardening #organicfood #organic #organicgardening #organicgarden #permaculture #selfsufficient #selfsufficiency #homegrown #homegrownveggies #farmgirl #justgrowit #veggiepatch #vegetablegarden #growwhatyoueat #livingofftheland #farmlife #blueberry #blueberries #berry #berries

Promises...promises! This is a natural cross we are growing out this year in the hope it is a flaming sassy redhead which we call Lucille Ball! @redhillbrewery thanks so much for your brilliant name suggestion! So far leaf type and fruit shape are spot on.

Oops, mum reminded me I had to hand pollinate these ladies because we don’t get many bees here. So unfortunately about half a dozen didn’t make it but I started ‘assisting’ last weekend 😁

Today I am mulching my tomato plants with comfrey. Comfrey is high in nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, potash, and calcium and is perfect food for heavy feeders in the garden. I grow my comfrey around the drip line of my fruit trees and pick and drop it as mulch. If you don't have the space you can have one or two plants and pick the leaves to make comfrey tea to feed your plants. It is pretty invasive though so be cautious where you plant it 😊

For my birthday yesterday I discovered a beautiful national park which was only 10 minutes away from home. We've driven past the street it's on many times but it has no sign post 😍 it was so much better than expected and even had an under ground river! . . . . . . . . . . . . . #homestead #homesteading #homesteadlife #harvest #livingthedream #growyourown #growyourownfood #garden #gardening #organicfood #organic #organicgardening #organicgarden #permaculture #selfsufficient #selfsufficiency #homegrown #homegrownveggies #farmgirl #justgrowit #veggiepatch #vegetablegarden #growwhatyoueat #livingofftheland #farmlife #nationalpark #rainforest #treefern #gumtrees #forest

The first fig💜And it was heaven! And fills my need for purple food💜 Was showing Mila the watermelon and she spied beans I had missed this morning. So I said yay beans with the zucchini tonight and she pulled a face. So I asked whether she had enjoyed the soup last night. (I lied and said it was broccoli) She did enjoy it and was not as amused as I was that I had pulled the wool over her eyes 😂Sorry family. Zucchini every night while it's in abundance. The kids don't like zucchini, but I've managed to get them to eat it every night with a little imagination with the nightly menu 😆 #growtherainbow #eattherainbow #eatclean #paleo #banting #lchf #fruit #herbs   #urbanorganicgardener   #urbangardenersrepublic #thehappygardeninglife #capetown #veggiepatch #vegetablegarden #homegrown #homemade #growyourown #growfood #foodie #gardener #potager #hydrovegan #justeatrealfood #epicgardening #moestuin

Smallest broccoli head ever. It's literally 3 inches across. Interesting thing is that we planted 8 plants and this one started growing the head very early and its looking like I have to harvest it soon or else it will bolt on me. The other plants don't even have heads forming yet. This is why you always want to plant multiple plants, sometimes the plant fails or something kills it, planting 3 plants or more will increase your chances of having a good harvest and sometimes they all do very well and then you have no idea what to do do with all the harvest.

3 of llthese little guys were picked yesterday from the patch and hope and we'll be munching on them for dinner tonight along with other homegrown bits. It's been a while since we had any cauliflowers ready so it's good to have a change!

The volunteer tomato... even though it's growing in one of our retainer blocks it is still flourishing and producing prolifically. We've pruned it right back this afternoon to give it some breathing room. Excited about the harvest - straight into a salad bowl tonight.

Composting, something you can do wherever you live. Yep! I once had a guest from France who lived in a city apartment but really believed in living sustainably so she set up her compost bin on her patio balcony. She didn't even have worms in it! She just put her kitchen scraps and shredded paper and waited for it to dissolve into black gold little by little. I was so impressed and think of her often when we design small space gardens. There are many composting methods out there. Which ones have you tried? And have they been successful? #compost #growyourownfood #organicgardening #urbanorganicgardening #organicfood #edibleschoolyard #gardeningtips #urbanorganicgardener #nonGMO #growveggies #growfoodnotlawns #gardeningwithkids #urbangardening #vegetablegarden #vegetables #veggiepatch #healthyeating #raw #plantbased #superfood #permaculture #blackgold

There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread. - Mahatma Gandhi ✨ Today I am thankful for my abundance, I have never gone hungry. I have always had a warm spot to sleep. How many in your community can’t say that? Today I’m thankful for my privilege and mindful of the responsibility of that privilege. My prayer for my own life is that I would live with open hands ready to give whatever is required. ✨ Oooffff....that’s a tough one and I’m not there yet. . . . . . . . . . . . . #thankful #responsibility #veggiepatch #abundance #childrensgarden #getgrowing #mybhg #mysouthernliving #gardenlife #plantsmakepeoplehappy #gardening #plantlady #growsomethinggreen #instagarden #homegrown #urbangarden #greenthumb #seedsofhope #thanksgiving2018 #generosity #fallgarden #gardenblogger #bloggersofinstagram #gardenersofinstagram #mysouthernliving #cottagegarden

I honestly had NO IDEA Cayenne peppers were so long! I had an amazing harvest of this variety in my home garden this year. Many I washed and put in the freezer to use in autumn / winter dishes. I highly recommend this pepper classic for any home gardener wanting to add some spice to their life. The pepper is tasty and BEAUTIFUL! ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #pepperfan #pepperaddict #homegarden #gardenchat #red #⁣ #growyourownfood #urbangardening #urbangardenersrepublic #gardener #urbanfarming #gardeningaustralia #growyourown #seedsnow #veggiepatch #gardening #epicgardening #harvest #permaculture #veggiegarden #organicgarden #allotment #gardens #urbanfarm #gardeninspiration #homegrown

Sometimes I like to go out even when it’s dark just to check on them 😂 they haven’t grown noticeably in 3 hours. Better luck next time aye 😂 . 🌿Energy flows where attention goes🌿 . This saying speaks to me on another level! For all things in life! The more time and effort you put into the things you love the better results you get 🙌 So if your not looking at least an hour a day of veggie patch porn your not doing it right 😂 Saying credit to @allthebloom . . . . . . . . . . . #gardenqueen #veggiepatch #gardenjourney #greenthumb #mygarden #homegarden #happygardener #veggielover #australiangardener #urbangarden #growyourownfood #canberragardenlover #aussiehomegrown #backyardpatch #plantlover #herbgarden #fruittree #horticulture #canberragardener #growtoeat #freshisbetter #housewifehobby

I have never had an ornamental garden, but the lady who planted out the farm had a love for roses and pretty flowers. The plan was to rip them out as our philosophy has always been 'if you can't eat it, don't grow it'. But I've quickly fallen in love with the pretty blooms that I can admire and gather to brighten my home. We live on the side on a hill with a 100 meter fall in sea level from the entrance to the dams and up the otherwise again - so the only flat spot for a kids play area is in this pocket of garden housing all the roses. I have decided to rehome them in another spot so I can continue to admire their beauty. . . . . . . . . . . . . #homestead #homesteading #homesteadlife #harvest #livingthedream #growyourown #growyourownfood #garden #gardening #organicfood #organic #organicgardening #organicgarden #permaculture #selfsufficient #selfsufficiency #homegrown #homegrownveggies #farmgirl #justgrowit #veggiepatch #vegetablegarden #growwhatyoueat #livingofftheland #farmlife #rose #roses #flowers #flowerstagram #pinkroses

What did you do this Friday night? My son and I went to the #beehotel making workshop at the #ELF (Environmental Learning Facility) here in #orangensw we learnt about the different types of bees that like to lay eggs in different types of holes. Some like mud and others need 5-10mm diameter hollows. We also learnt about the importance of keeping flowers that attract bees into our gardens. Apparently they prefer blue and yellow ones! Lavender, mint and carrot family flowers are favourites amongst our native bees. There's around 1400 different species of bee here in Australia and about 400 of them live in the ground! After making our hotel we sat together to eat in the twilight at the foot of the beautiful community garden. When we were done the scraps were put into the compost and the Reusable plates returned to the kitchen. We then took a turn in the garden and found some gigantic #Asparagus ! #environmentalism #bees #organicgardening #permaculture #onewithnature #teachthemyoung #ecolife #zerowastelifestyle #greenliving #sustainability #noplanetb #veggiepatch

Weekend #harvest 💚🌸🌿 Been having visitors in the garden and it's so heartwarming to hear all the oohs and aahs and watch people photographing away. I was brought eggs and pepper dew seedlings for some zucchini and plants and this morning someone came to pick a basket of herbs for a gin table for a wedding. So proud of my little patch this month and we are eating mostly from the garden. Last night I made a zucchini soup. A new recipe I looked up. So simple, but wow! It tasted like fresh asparagus. Sauté the chopped zucchini with onion and garlic. Add stock and basil leaves and cook for 15min. Remove a few chunks and blend. Add cream, parmesan and chopped flat leaf parsley and serve with extra cheese and the zucchini chunks. I went back for seconds and will definitely add this to my soup reportoire. #growtherainbow #eattherainbow #eatclean #paleo #banting #lchf #fruit #herbs #urbanorganicgardener #urbangardenersrepublic #thehappygardeninglife #capetown #veggiepatch #vegetablegarden #homegrown #homemade #growyourown #growfood #foodie #gardener #potager #hydrovegan #justeatrealfood #epicgardening #moestuin #zucchini #courgette #summersquash #artichoke

I have found it quite hard to source smudge sticks locally & online. I decided to grow my own sage & have just harvested my first sage smudge sticks to dry out. I have hopes of home growing different herbs and flowers in the future and adding different types online forsale. Let me know if this is something you would be interested in. Happy Friday 🌙

Hope you get to spend time in your veggie patch this weekend ... it’s good for your soul and for your health, keeps you active and gets you into the great outdoors. And if you haven’t yet planted out your summer patch, there’s still time ... dig through plenty of organic matter, pop your seedlings in and mulch well.

Here is Rebecca radish in all her glory (i.e. my first home grown radish - see her insitu in the garden in a previous post). Perhaps not up to scratch with Peter Gilmore style veggies, but she was utterly delicious. Thank you Becky🙏 - Best way to have fresh radish....straight from the garden, carpaccio style; sea salt, freshly ground black pepper & Cobram Estate extra virgin olive oil.
