For the love of earth⠀ ⠀ Today’s crucial design ingredient is Earth; Soil; Good clean Dirt. ⠀ ⠀ We depend on it to feed us and our gardens, to support plants and get the right vitamins and minerals into our food.⠀ ⠀ Soil is different in its makeup and behaviour depending on the rock below and what’s growing above, and keeping it ‘in good heart’ is every experienced gardener’s first job. ⠀ ⠀ To know the health of your soil scoop up a dark crumbly handful in your hands and breath deeply, no kidding, good soil smells delicious! ⠀ ⠀ Good soil smells a bit like coming home. ⠀ ⠀ Soil health is key to food security and as designers ensuring good soil is also key to the success of our projects, whether the soil health of a border or the health of a woodland. ⠀ ⠀ “A penny for the plant, a pound for the soil’.⠀ ⠀ Understanding soil is deeply rewarding and needs longer than an instapost, but the key rules are simple:⠀ ⠀ Feed your soil with organic matter, keep off it when wet, keep it covered over winter with ground cover, mulch or green manure and mulched in summer. Avoid artificial fertilisers and poisons. ⠀ ⠀ Love your soil as yourself, it goes right through us and we go back to it of course! ⠀ ⠀ This post is dedicated to John Watson, founding father of Riverford Organics, inexhaustible seeker of knowledge and campaigner for looking after our land.⠀ ⠀ For an old blog post I wrote about him see the link in my bio. ⠀ ⠀ The frosty love heart leaves in the photo by jasoningram are the great little groundcover #Epimedium sulphureum #gardendesignjournal #gardensillustrated #houseandgarden #granddesigns #marianboswalllandscapes #Englishcountrygarden #englishgarden #countryliving #soilassociation #johnwatson #riverford #organicgardening#earthseekers #soilassociation #authenticfood#soil #12daysofdesign ⠀ ⠀

Bronze variety sunflower with a very welcome visitor. I was googling how to harvest the seeds from my giant sunflowers today and went to check if the backs of the flowers had started to go brown.

My Giant Bolivian Achocha doing a fair impression of another well known plant. A member of the same family as cucumbers and squash small cucumber like fruit and tastes like a pepper when cooked. #achocha #bolivian #vine #sprayfree #organicgardening #growing #urbanorganicgardener #healthylifestyle #heirloomseeds #fairdinkumseeds #edenseeds #sunshinecoast #horticulturist #sustainableliving #community #selfsufficientliving #backyardveggies #family #green #vegetarian #vegan #education #veggiepatch

Wie es aussieht hab ich Besuch bekommen in bzw unter der #laube . Auch der Hund war sichtlich nervös. Weiß jemand wie ich den Besuchern möglichst schonend beibringen kann das sie wieder gehen können? #ratten
Time to make medlar jelly and sticky toffee pudding. Before we left we picked these lovely medlars, now they are bletted and ready to be cooked.
The last of the Silverbeet destined for smoothies in the morning. It is such a hardy plant. Three plantings a year (any time here in Sydney) give me a constant supply, looking great in the garden and getting no pests or diseases (almost). #growyourownfood #urbangarden #urbanfarming #urbangardening #citygarden #rozellegarden #aussiegarden #australiagardening #leafygreens #gardenphotography #growyourownfood #epicgardening #thehappygardeninglife #seedsnow #vegetablepatch #veggiegarden #healthylife #growsomethinggreen #growfoodnotlawns #growingfood #urbangarden #urbanorganicgarden #organicgardening #organicgarden #instagarden #mygarden #homegrown
¿Hasta cuándo duran las plantas de pimiento? Estamos a mediados de enero y los pimientos han continuado dando frutos. Las plantas no tienen su mejor aspecto pero han seguido floreciendo y formando pimientos. Eso sí, de menor tamaño que en otros momentos. Hasta ahora hemos mantenido unas temperaturas superiores a los 15°C durante el día, según los datos climatológicos en el próximo mes la temperatura mínima será de 11°C, así que me temo que ya ha llegado la hora de dejar libre ese espacio para otras plantas hasta que llegue la primavera. ¿Ideas para ocupar ese espacio? #raisedbeds #ediblegarden #countryliving #healthyfood #gardening #allotment #growsomethinggreen #urbangardening #allotmentlife #veggiepatch #kitchengarden #gardenersofinstagram #gardeners #learntogrow #eatseasonal #homefood #organicgardening #homegrown #grownyourownfood #lifeinsquares #grownyourownveggies #thegoodlife #gardenblogger #greenyourfeed #greenthumb #urbanorganicgardening #selfsufficiency #homesteadinglife #alimentacionsaludable #huertourbano
It’s only with you instagram gardeners that I can share this pic and I just know you’ll share the excitement with me. A tulip, waiting for spring 😍 Learned a valuable lesson yesterday: if the ground is frozen solid and you did all your pruning it’s no use freezing your ass of at the allotment. Except for this little one... 💚💚💚💚💚 #allotmentlife #naturephotography #nature #tulips #tulipsofinstagram #tulipsofholland #springwillcome #organic #organicgardening #urbangardening #flowersofinstagram

Onions at up! Following the advice from @realseeds They went into the propagator a week ago (they need a long growing season) - looking good so far!! #organicgardening #onionseedlings #propagator #earlystart #growwhatyoueat #eatwhatyougrow #homegrown #vegetables #allotment #germination
The starting of wheatgrass ! I had put in a few wheat grains that I picked up from supermarket and they finally sprouted !!! Wheatgrass is full of nutrients and is great for metabolism. With it being all the race these days, I thought I should get myself an organic one too and viola ! Now I can make my own organic wheatgrass smoothies 😋 Also I finally put my karvachauth's karva to good use...as a wheatgrass pot 😁 P.S. turns out wheatgrass is good for cats as well so looks like Coco is gonna be delighted as well 🐈😊

Each year I grow caterpillars on our kitchen table at #SophiesPatch ...... #monarchcaterpillars that is. It’s not for my kids, it’s actually for me as I just love watching the whole process from #caterpillar to #chrysalis to #butterfly . When they emerge we take them outside and let them have their first flight and it’s always #breathtaking . There are lots of #monarchbutterflies in our garden already, as well as lots of #nativebutterflies and I am very delighted that #mypatch is an official #butterflysite from @butterfly_conservation_sa
Swipe to see what I made with the yummy cabbage I grew! I had to take off the outer leaves because... slugs... but inside the cabbage was so sweet and delicious, a treat!!! I have a few cabbages left, including a red cabbage... so I’ll have to think of lots of different ways to cook it! Any suggestions? #salinagrewit #winterharvest #cabbage #organic #londonallotments #growyourfood #homegrown #vegetables #allotmentlife #ontheplot #organicgardening #organicfood #igrewthis
Today we made ‘Worm Towers’, insitu worm farms that work directly in the soil at the plant roots, as my 8yo boy’s first ‘Farming & Gardening’ Block project for his Grade 3 year ❤️ As I took photos I thought I’d add instructions for anyone else wanting to make one ☺️. As we have a significant issue with possums devastating the garden and orchard on our mountain bush block, we tend to only put kitchen scraps in lidded #compost bins or in #wormfarms as compost heaps attract them into the garden. I’m a huge fan of worm farms 😍 so it will be wonderful to try these insitu ones. Learning from last time, I had my middle boy start his Grade 3 kitchen garden plot in spring at the end of his Second Grade and he has been able to plant, tend and harvest his plot over the summer holidays, the aim being to harvest and process the bulk as we go back to homeschool in autumn. Over the course of his third grade year ‘Farming & Garden’ will be our primary focus and we’ll again use the wonderful ‘Seedlings’ #Permaculture for Families course by @spiralgarden ❤️ I’ve been so excited to do Third Grade for a second time 😍; we had such a wonderful G3 year with my eldest boy ☺️. I have planned a somewhat different year this time around, focussing even more on practical skills in the garden and on the farm. I have also decided to sync more of our Grade 3 and Grade 4 main lesson work this year, not only just syncing the blocks but overlapping some of the topics too as I think this will give us some lovely opportunities to work together on projects. Right in the thick of 2019 #homeschoolplanning now 😍

After the potato harvest, it had to be a garden cook up for lunch. Everything on the plate was picked less than half an hour earlier from the backyard. #permaculture #zerofoodmiles #backyard #organic #veggiegarden #homeharvest #organicgardening #potatoes #zucchini #beans #tomatoes
I brought my chilli and sweet pepper plants indoors from the allotment to overwinter as an experiment to see if I would get an earlier crop. I have read that some Capsicum spp. are good for overwintering but others aren't. As I would usually grow then as annuals and compost them anyway, I didn't have anything to lose. I left two lemon drop plants with their small green chillies on, and they've ripened over winter (1). I cut back all the other plants and they started growing leaves a week or so ago (2). If this is successful then I shall be overwintering my pepper and chilli plants every year! I grew lemon drop, Alberto's locoto, early jalapeño (all chillies), king of the north and dedo de mocha (both sweet peppers). Has anyone else overwintered their plants? Which varieties did you try and were they successful?
Miss this already! #earthovenpizza

#Repost @tetaneman with @get_repost ・・・ Kalau ada yang menawarkan tanaman mimba, jangan pikir dua kali, langsung ambil yaa.. Mimba ini "jimat" berkebun saya. Saya jadi bisa memangkas biaya jajan pestisida, fungisida, skaligus pupuk untuk kebun berkat tanaman mimba ini Untuk pilihan pestisida organik, menurut pengalaman pribadi saya, mimba masih yang terbaik. Selain pestisida, daun dan biji mimba bisa dipakai untuk fungisida, melawan virus dan bakteri, dan juga untuk pupuk Sudah banyak penghuni kebun saya yang diselamatkan dengan ekstrak daun mimba buatan sendiri Untuk media tanam bekas pakai juga selalu saya sterilkan menggunakan ekstrak daun mimba Kalau bentuk siap pakai yang dijual biasanya sudah berbentuk neem oil yang merupakan hasil proses pengekstrakan minyak dari biji mimba secara cold pressed Cara buat ekstrak daun mimba bisa cek di #ttmekstrakmimba yaa Selain untuk kebun, tanaman mimba juga punya sederet manfaat herbal yang luar biasa (silahkan googling manfaatnya) . Siapa tahu ada mimba yang tumbuh liar dekat rumah, yuk dimanfaatkan lebih lanjut 😉 . . . . . #neemtree #neemoil #neem #neemleaves #mimba #ttmekstrakmimba #organicpesticide #pesnab #pestisidaorganik #pestisidanabati #berkebunorganik #organicgardening #pesticides

Today I´m finally posting a gardening picture for those of you who have been waiting for a long winter time. The first Peperoni is there and officially opened the gardening season 2019. Paprika is the only seed where I start the pre-growing in January, because they have a very long growth phase and it is often not as warm as they need it. I don't have a greenhouse either, so they always have to get along outdoors. Those who have been following me for some time know that I live in a flat with a small urban garden. This year everything will change, because we will move into our own apartment with a roof terrace. So the urban garden will become a rooftop garden. Exciting times! . . . . #growyourown #urbangarden #urbangardening #urbanfarming #growingfood #growwhatyoueat #organic #plantbased #ecoliving #slowliving #goinggreen #organicgardening #homegrown #growfoodnotlawns #bringtheoutsidein #indoorgarden #peperoni #paprika #rooftopgarden #growsomething #plasticfreefood #growsomethinggreen #urbanjungle #plantlovers #bellpepper #redhotchilipeppers
I tied Hakusai not to be rotten by frost. Though I have seen them tied with rope before at any fields, I didn’t know for what they did🧐. One of people managing a field told me the reason. It was tough than I thought before trying it because there were so many and big leaves😅.

This is what happens when you don’t check your squash for a few days 😳 With all the awesome suggestions you you guys have given me, I now have heaps of ideas as to how to tackle these 💪🏼 I’m a little sad about the tromboncino though as it fell off the vine. It’s over a metre long and was my best contender at this stage for the @tromboncino.of.ig challenge. The current record is sitting at 1.8m so it might be game over for me 😂

Blue Salvias are a Bee Magnet! 🐝 Did you know bees have favourite colours? BLUE 💙 is one of them along with yellow 🌻 and white 🌼 flowers. I often watch honeybees and blue banded bees queuing for the blue flowers like salvias in my garden. They are a high-rise nectar factory with a banquet of free food for these wonderful pollinators. If you're not sure what to plant in your garden to attract bees, try salvias. They are the largest genus of plants in the mint family, Lamiaceae. There are 100's of herbaceous perennials and annuals to choose from. A few edible ones I love in my garden are chia (Salvia hispanica) and many varieties of sages. 🌿 What plants do bees love in your garden? 🐝🐝🌼🌻 . . . .

OUTDOOR KITCHEN PROJECT (KITCHEN TOOLS CABINET) We are on the middle of building our oven, stove and smoked house but we forget to build one important thing....which is a kitchen cabinet, a storage to organize our kitchen tools. We have so much traditional kitchen tools made from clay, wood, stone and even a coconut shell. We always use it if we want something special from our kitchen and we want to show our friends how special the tools are by displaying it at the outdoor kitchen. Remember, that all of the material we use are a secondhand material 😀 so we dig into our junkyard material to find what we need and just a few hours later, it's done. Now, i have to clean our kitchen tools before displaying it. #bandungpermaculture #permaculture #urbanpermaculture #permaculturefarm #permaculturelife #permaculturedesign #growyourownfood #knowyourfarmer #meetyourfarmer #organic  #organicgardening #organicfood  #organicfarm #urbanfarming #urbangarden  #urbangardener #urbanorganicgardening #urbangardenersrepublic #wastefree #zerowaste #explorebandung #zerowasteliving #wastemanagement #reducewaste  #indonesiaberkebun #bandungberkebun #kebunorganik #kitchentoolcabinet #petaniurban #minimalistliving
This statement means so much to me. I can only hope that one day my daughter find her own garden and loves and cherishes it as much as I do. . Gardening with kids, it's a start.

I woke up early in the morning to repot a galangal plant to sell. I would have worked up a sweat unearthing it, if not for the welcoming cool weather. I managed to also dig up a small piece of galangal, and decided at the spur of the moment to cook a non-spicy version of tom yum noodles for The Little Emperor. This unassuming piece of woody herb is a torture to unearth but the fragrance is incomparable, and an essential ingredient in tom yum. #theslowgardenproject #suenyeegrows #cookmoreeatless #suenyeecooks #homegrown #growyourown #organic #organicgardening #thelittleemperoreats #toddlerfood #toddlerfoodideas #gourmettoddler #yummy #delicious #eeeeeats
