  • While Hugo takes a nice Sunday nap with Wednesday, a little look at some of what's growing here at the moment in both the food and flower gardens....
.
1. Periforme Abruzzese tomatoes from seed....I'm more than just a little impatient for these to ripen.
.
.
2. Beurre Bosq Pears, one of our oldest trees, planted pre-us here, this winter I promise to prune it and give it the love it deserves.
.
.
3. Golden Delicious Apples I didn't thin so busy messing with my baby apple trees I was, which lost all their apples to critters that got in in our absence anyway. That'll teach me.
.
.
4. Lovely Lilies, picked up from Crawleighwood Gardens, make for a heady vase-full in the house.
.
.
5. Sedum Matrona in all its gorgeous grape beauty and a magnet for bees, any sedum really, they lose their minds for it.
.
.
6. & 7. The dahlias I again have paid no attention to this year but have designed a large new border which will run around our chook run extension, entirely for dahlia love.
.
.
8. & 9. Classic Valencia always blooming and one of my new faves, Per-fyoom, though I hate the name I gotta say.
.
.
10. The Japanese Maples setting their delicate garnet flowers.

  • All the potatoes are doing well so far! 🥔 I learned from the last time I planted potatoes to not over fertilize or else I’ll end up with vigorous leafy growth and very small potatoes. I have only fed this round of potatoes with a liquid fertilizer once and the rain recently took care of all the watering. Can’t wait to harvest that first potato this season! 👩🏻‍🌾 I love the taste of homegrown potatoes, it’s nothing like store brought! Have you tried growing potatoes? Any tips to share? 😉

  • Folks! Plant flowers next to your crops! We cannot speak to the restorative and balanced growing spaces we have gained since inter planting!!

  • О луке салатном пора уже вспомнить и вчера я свой посеяла😋 Напоминаю и вам 🧐
Я давно выращиваю лук из рассады 🌱🌱🌱 и у меня часто спрашивают, что да как 🤓 Я обещала написать и показать процесс👉👉👉 Но в первую очередь я хочу объяснить почему мне нравится лук, выращенный из семян. В первую очередь потому, что я и мои близкие любим сочный, сладкий салатный лук. Второй причиной является то, что у нас продают 5-6 сортов лука головкой и… салатного среди них нет. Я фанат салатного лука «Эксибишен», «Глобо», а ещё лука порей. В этом году посадила  ещё 2 сорта салатного. Семена покупаю через  интернет. Хочу попробовать «Жёлтый сладкий испанский», «Красный салатный». И в дополнение решила вырастить из семян белый «Неман» и «Штуттгарский великан». Разные сорта сажаю в разные емкости, но обязательно глубокие. Разные емкости нужны из-за неодинаковых сроков прорастания лука, ну и чтобы не перепутать. Грунт лёгкий, питательный (т.к. рассада не пикируется) проливаю раствором марганцовки. Сажаю на снег – очень удобно. И растим рассаду. По поводу трудности высаживания рассады на участок – бред. Легче - легкого Делаем тяпкой бороздки, поливаем, при желании вносим перегной, удобрение. Нашу рассаду кладем перышками на одну сторону и дальше тяпкой сдвигаем на корешки второй валик бороздки. И опять, тяпкой, утрамбовываем. Поверьте моему опыту, посмотрите на последнее фото 👉👉👉 и удачи любителям вкусного лука ✌️. #урожай #овощи #огород #садовод #садоводство #рассадалука #огородники #огородникам #выращиваемсами #дачныйсезон #growyourownfood #onion #onions #seedlings #homegarden #indoorgarden  #containergarden #homegardening #sweetonion #sweetonions #fromseed #vegetables #organicgarden #homegrown #harvest #potgarden #food #vegetablegarden #growyourownfood #organicgardener

  • Nothing compares to a HOME GROWN TOMATO🍅 Seriously ‼️ And any self-respecting gardener covets the arrival of the new seed catalogs 📖 picking out the coolest varieties 🌱 by color, flavor, shape and size ☀️ Summer can’t come soon enough for me 🤩💕

  • Collecting seaweed to add to our compost heap. Never done this before. Have you?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’ve heard it can be a good addition to your compost, but are there important things I should know? Like balance or certain seaweeds to avoid? Or can I just plonk it on and know I’m adding some good stuff in there?

  • Good morning 😃 🌎 world. Have a nice day! See the sky he is smiling so why don't you? If you meet people that make you happy and smile, love them. If you meet people that don't make you happy and don't make you smile, close one eye, and smile to them. We are not Buddha or god so don't force ourself to be perfect.

  • Nu när kylan tillfälligt släppt taget så gick det äntligen att skörda igen 👏🏽 Ännu mår morötterna som jag sådde i slutet på juli fint ute i pallkragarna. Även de på friland var delvis ok, även om kylan tagit hårt på dem (de pyttesmå på sista bilden sådda i augusti). Jag förvarar morötter i garaget och i jordkällaren, men även en hel del ute under halm o löv 🍀🥕 Rättikan funkar fint ha ute med, men nu är allt snart uppätet. Majrova är det endast små fjuttisar kvar av, den brukar sjunga på sista versen såhär års🙈 I år ska jag så massor i juni/juli så vi har ännu mer över vintern!

  • What a cracker of a day! It’s time to dust off your tools and get out in the garden this weekend. Perfect weather to get weeding and mulching beds with compost. Perhaps even a Broad Bean sowing?
.

What are the gardening tools you couldn’t be without? For me it’s these guys - my copper trowel, handfork and dibber/weeder from Implementations (no longer shiny as they once were...could do with a clean!). Trusty @felco_official secateurs. Hori Hori Japanese trowel for hardcore hole making, cutting through roots etc. Opinel pocket knife. And of course a note book, measure and rusty old boot scraper!

  • Crop rotation..what is it, why is it important, how to plan in the home garden? If you are curious, take a look at my blog post this week on the subject of crop rotation at gardening4joy.com. Delicious grape tomatoes from my garden last summer, indeterminate and grew very tall
