More late November blooms. Snapdragon, Pink yarrow, and Coneflower. We have had at least two overnight frosts here in zone 7. It seems highly unusual for spring and summer plants to keep blooming. Are any other gardeners experiencing this and if so, where are you? 🤔 . . . #question #perplexed #whattheheck #winterblooms #flowers #flowerstagram #gardening #gardener #mastergardener #ocmastergardeners #snapdragon #yarrow #coneflower #echinacea #gardenfeature #grow #organicgardener #healing #nature #healingwithnature #backyardgardener #urbangarden #zone7 #november2018 #northcarolina #purple #medicinal #medicinalflowers #climatechange
Falling into an early winter #imgc2019 #mastergardener
A bit too green for the season? Sorry to jump straight back to early summer, but today I am recapping our entire growing season for 2018 on the blog! What a year we had! I learned so much growing our own food for a second year as well as this being the first year that I grew food for others. I never would have imagined that I would spend most of time learning the best harvesting and washing techniques 😆 There was a lot of trial and error figuring out how to best package and store the veggies post harvest. But we made it! The field is now officially cleaned and ready for a long winter’s nap under a blanket of snow. Time to rest now and begin planning for next spring ☺️🌱💛 Link in profile + head to our blog to read all that we did this year on the farm! What did you learn this year farming or gardening? I’d love to hear your best tip! #UATRfarm #UATRgarden

Another client garden space complete! The couple was absolutely delightful to work with on this elevated herb & vegetable garden. There were slight mobility issues, which was resolved by simply bringing the raised bed up to meet the need. She may stand or comfortably sit on the finished top of a bed. Constructed of hardy cedar, each measures 3 ft. wide x 6 ft. long x 27 inches tall. The cobalt blue containers, graceful arbor, and decorative iron sculpture on the back fence finish off the space.

Lettuce is one of the easiest crops to grow- it’s a set it & forget it kind of plant. It can be grown in almost anything with dirt & water. 💥 Then you have some salad greens. What varieties of lettuce do you grow or want to grow? __________________________________________________ ▪️ ▪️ ▪️ ▪️ ▪️ ▪️ ▪️ #EdibleLandscaping #EdibleLandscape #Permaculture #SustainableLandscaping #FullBloom #SustainableGardening #MasterGardener #Houston #GardenCoach #Zone9A #TheHappyGardeningLife #UrbanOrganicGardener #UrbanGardening #UrbanGarden #EpicGardening #GrowForIt #SlowFoodMovement #FoodGarden #Lettuce #InMyGarden #BackyardFarmer #GrowingFood #GrowSomethingGreen #Salad #EdibleGarden #SustainableSprout #FallGarden #OrganicGarden #EatWhatYouGrow #GrowYourOwnFood

Well we have had a fantastic weekend here at the flower company. Thanks to everyone who came out to see us at @ashevillecitymarket and @marshallhandmademarket and also @rhubarbavl and @ferrari (!!!) for being wonderful clients. It’s a nice feeling to have crushed a weekend with the farm in hibernation and now weddings. I have to go home and do some math, but I think we might have surpassed a major goal this weekend! - Why the photo of anemones? These are a reminder of what I should have been doing! The weather was beautiful, but I barely spent a minute in the flower fields. However, tomorrow is all about anemones. Spring is coming soon!
What an honor!!! Kaye Kittrell @latebloomershow and Jacq Davis @epicyardfarm came out to visit my garden last week. Kaye put together this fun video of my garden and my dorky self🤣. Go check it out and follow her on ig and YouTube. Link in bio.
What’s blooming today in my garden! #bluehatgardener

For broccoli & cauliflower (as well as other plants but we’re talking about fall plants) especially I prefer to start from seed. Back in the day prior to starting all my own seeds I used to purchase starts. Some would form small heads or not even form heads at all. Did you know that there’s basically a shelf life on these starts? If they are not in the ground within the specific window, they will not perform well. This is one of the reasons why I decided to spend so much time learning about seed starting. __________________________________________________ ▪️ ▪️ ▪️ ▪️ ▪️ ▪️ ▪️ #EdibleLandscaping #EdibleLandscape #Permaculture #SustainableLandscaping #FullBloom #SustainableGardening #MasterGardener #Houston #GardenCoach #Zone9A #TheHappyGardeningLife #UrbanOrganicGardener #UrbanGardening #UrbanGarden #EpicGardening #GrowForIt #SlowFoodMovement #FoodGarden #Brassicas #InMyGarden #BackyardFarmer #GrowingFood #CityGarden #GardenGram #SustainableSprout #FallGarden #OrganicGarden #EdibleGarden #EatWhatYouGrow #GrowYourOwnFood

Seed starting 🌱You hear me always talking about it, but in the fall it’s vital. Some crops have a short window in which you can plant them. Since it’s fall and cooler temperatures are among us remember cooler temperatures can decrease the germination rate of the seeds. Decreased germination rates can lead to decreases in overall yield and vigor. In the fall I especially prefer transplants to direct seeding. Good sturdy, healthy transplants help ensure you can make the most of this window. __________________________________________________ ▪️ ▪️ ▪️ ▪️ ▪️ ▪️ ▪️ #EdibleLandscaping #EdibleLandscape #Permaculture #SustainableLandscaping #FullBloom #SustainableGardening #MasterGardener #Houston #GardenCoach #Zone9A #TheHappyGardeningLife #UrbanOrganicGardener #UrbanGardening #UrbanGarden #EpicGardening #GrowForIt #SlowFoodMovement #FoodGarden #InMyGarden #BackyardFarmer #GrowingFood #CityGarden #GardenGram #SustainableSprout #FallGarden #SeedStarting #OrganicGarden #EdibleGarden #EatWhatYouGrow #GrowYourOwnFood

Compost selfie!!!!!!!!!! 🐛 🌱 This is my FIRST EVER compost!!!!! It’s juicy and black and filled with microbes and ready to make the grounds super fertile for new life!!!!! 🙂YAY!!!🙂 Now, for those of you pro composters who are creeping and judging right now- YES, I did it completely wrong lol. It was in a clear container, no holes, moisture wasn’t controlled, I NEVER cared to mix it up (everything was molding and it honestly grossed me out). But HEY! Somehow I did it. I made some delicious, barely ready to use (okay not even ready to use) compost. So now I know what to do. And I’m going to take this ish seriously next time. I WILL become a master composter. 🥕🥦🌽🍏🍊🍋🍉🍇🍓🍒🍑🍍🍅🥑🍆🥒🌶🍠🥔

Had a great time representing the University of Maine Cooperative Extension with Lisa from @fresheggsdaily at the Maine Harvest Festival today. So many wonderful vendors to visit too- just on my way out I got some delicious sauerkrauts from @graciesgarden_ferments , a super cute gift from @mainealpacaexperience , fresh grass fed beef from Bouchard Country Store and a cup of @boldcoastcoffee from Tiller and Rye- oh and a bag of herbal popcorn from Little Lads that didn’t quite make it long enough to be part of the picture. 😋 Highly recommend this festival- great Christmas shopping and who doesn’t love supporting local small businesses? It’s open again tomorrow so stop in if you can! . . . #maineharvestfestival #crossinsurancecenter #supportsmallbusiness #shoplocal #christmasiscoming #farmfresh #gifts #umainecooperativeextension #mastergardener #volunteer #november #maine #thewaylifeshouldbe #littlelads #popcorn #mainefarms #gardening #farming

What is this picture of? It’s me loading a truck full of cinder blocks. Not breaking a sweat or having to stop and catch my breath. • Twice, men asked if I could handle it. One even offered to help (employee). • I am not too proud to not expect help. I believe that more of us need to say yes when people offer to help, even if you could have done it on your own. It benefits both individuals and gets things done faster. • I do think the man was surprised that I could match him block by block. (And to be honest I was a bit surprised myself.) • I am ever so grateful for my body. I have been mad and frustrated with it many many times. But I only got one. #watchoutworld #strongwomen #greenhouseprep #gardener #mastergardener #choosekindness #service #loveothers #seethegood #strongereveryday #fitlife
Thought I should take advantage of this good hair day to announce...it's official! #MasterGardener
Here we go! I have had a steady supply of beets thanks to the fall garden. They all came into the house in 2 days last week thanks to the sudden winter (I know - 17 degrees is warm for some people - but not me 😂) Beet carrot lemon juice! 🥤 it’s actually pretty tasty! Recipe- 1 lb carrots 2 beets 1 lemon (rind removed) 1 inch fresh ginger Makes 2 servings #beets #beet #organicbeets #organicgardening #organicgardener #organicgarden #mastergardener #mastergardeners #farmfreshfood #farmfresh #farmfreshforlife
Another way to use hot pepper plants. I like to make my own hot sauce because it’s easy & homemade always tastes better. Also, be cautious or wear gloves when handling peppers! 🌶 Here’s what you will need to make it: 1️⃣. 1 pound of Tabasco peppers (or Serrano, habanero, Thai, cayenne) 2️⃣. 2 cups of distilled white vinegar 3️⃣. 2 tablespoons of salt • ➡️ Remove the stems & wash the peppers ➡️ Place peppers in a good processor or blender & roughly chop them ➡️ To a sauce pan in medium - high heat add peppers, vinegar & salt. Continue to stir & wait for the mixture to boil ➡️ Once the mixture is boiling lower heat & let simmer for 5 mins (stir occasionally) ➡️ Remove mixture from heat & let it cool down completely ➡️ Pour the pepper mixture back into the food processor & purée ➡️ Pour mixture into a sealable jar & place in refrigerator for 2 weeks- after 2 weeks strain out the seeds (or leave them in the sauce) ➡️ The strained mixture is the finished hot sauce 🔥 keep in the refrigerator. This sauce will keep for a year. ___________________________________________ • • • • • • • • • • #MasterGardener #Houston #Zone9A #GardenCoach #UrbanOrganicGardener #GrowForIt #FarmToTable #GetGrowing #GardenToTable #RealFood #PepperPlant #TheHappyGardeningLife #Spicy #GrowItYourself #GardenToTable #EatHealthy #EpicGardening #FoodForFuel #HealthyFood #HealthyOption #EatWellBeWell #FreshFood #Tabasco #GrowWhatYouEat #EatRealFood #HotSauce #PepperSauce #HomemadeRecipe #SlowFoodMovement #MakeYourOwnFood
Sweet, spicy, and fresh as morning dew, my French Carnation Faith fragrance is a unique and beautifully complex floral. Forget the plastic-like flowers sold in cheap dozens. Heirloom carnations (Dianthus caryophyllus) are deeply colored and amazingly fragrant. One of my favorite garden writers, Louise Beebe Wilder, noted: “The wild Carnation with its five rose-crimson petals may be seen by travelers in France growing upon wild rocky places and upon the walls of many an ancient chateau.” Can’t afford a trip abroad? Close your eyes and let your nose transport you!
Bright and warm, cleansing and comforting, my Lavender Vanilla Love fragrance is a match made in gardening paradise. Two beautiful flowers from opposite sides of the world come together: Maillette Lavender oil (Lavandula angustifolia) from the South of France–the deepest and most fragrant because of perfect growing conditions--and pure vanilla oleoresin (Vanilla planifolia) harvested from vining orchids in the tropics of India.
Uplifting, awakening, and perfect for clearing away the metal cobwebs on even the most challenging days--that's my Paradise Grapefruit Joy fragrance. The essential oil extracted from grapefruit peel (Citrus × paradisi) smells amazing. The scent is mild but invigorating and surprisingly sweet. To it I’ve added a hint of Clary Sage oil (Salvia sclarea), a natural antidepressant.  The combination is absolutely joyful!
These perky little chrysanthemums provide a colorful punctuation mark on the garden landscape. They faced the freezing temps from two nights ago, and are as bright as ever!

Are you a slave profiting from enforcing the dictates of the slave masters? Ya, don't tell me your thoughts about cannabis 'regulation' unless you are prepared to defend illegal [Shuttlesworth vs the City of Birmingham] licensing requirements about growing dandelions in your gd front lawn, as well. 😒 “If the State converts a right (liberty) into a privilege, the citizen can ignore the license and fee and engage in the right (liberty) with impunity.” (Shuttlesworth v.

It is time to officially announce our relocation. Two weeks ago, I said . to my garden. I have been clearing out my garden last couple of weeks. The first photo is my old garden, and the second one is the new one. I took all of my containers with me as you can see in the second pic. I only have basils and some squashes left in my garden. I am going to harvest and pull them and return the keys sometimes this week. . the beginning, I tried not to have emotional connection with my garden, because I knew that I would have to leave it sooner or later. I am not upset for leaving my garden, but I feel pain that the garden would not be cultivated anymore. It is simply going to be lawn again. At the first glance, my new garden seemed small, but I think, I have more than enough space to grow if I use my new backyard wisely. All in all, if anyone needs an affordable rental house with fertile backyard near UA Little Rock, please dm me; I will connect you to my land lady and personally help establish your garden. I have a great, supportive land lady. Wonderful neighbors are also bonus. I am going through mixed feelings, but I am excited about starting another garden . scratch and sharing the progress with you.

🍂Fuyu Persimmons🍂 Our Fuyu persimmon tree is loaded with fruit👏 Persimmons fall under two categories, non-astringent and astringent. Fuyu is a non-astringent cultivar. Meaning the persimmons can be eaten fresh right from the tree and are crisp like an apple. Whereas, astringent cultivars are best picked and ripened for a few days until soft and nearly mushy before they are sweet enough to eat. Happy harvesting! #fuyupersimmon #persimmon #mastergardener #gardenofthesevensisters #heyslomgs
