I feel like crying! I watered all my new seeds this morning and everything was looking good. I came out two hours later to find a Bush Turkey had come to visit πŸ˜₯#bushturkey #gardenpests #vegetablegarden #homegrown #homestead #urbanfarmer #urbanfarming #urbanfarm #homesteading #selfsufficient #selfsufficiency #sequeensland #brisbane #queensland #gardening #garden #wanttocry

Fields of beauty 🌾
The cloud cover and thick smoke this morning created what looked like a second sunrise. Note how high the sun is in the sky. #seqldcountry #southeastqueensland #squeensland #toowoomba #toowoombalife #toowoombaliving #toowoombaregion #seqldcountry #sequeensland #southeastqueenslandcountry #sunrise #smoke #hikingadventures
This is the wonderful soap tree, it is an awesome pioneer species and host to many insects and birds. The varied appeal of this tree makes it a fundamental native tree for our bio-diverse environment. This tree can also be used for hygiene, when leaves are crushed with water they create a lather which you can use to clean your hands, hence the name soap tree. The leaves contain saponin which is the active ingredient to create the soapy foam. If you are going to pick leaves off of your soap tree please check for any caterpillars or larvae under the leaf before you remove it. #bushtricks #bushregeneration #oxleycreek #sequeensland #jaggeraland #caringforcountry #magic
Was already pretty stoked on today after a sunrise 20km hilly trail run with heaps of laughs, family picnic in the forest but family wines at the water tops it off. Feeling fulfilled and ready for another hard training week #4weekstogo πŸ˜ŠπŸ€—πŸ˜ #redlandbay #mumma #lighthousebarandcafe #mudflats #sequeensland #moretonbay #family #tookus15minsforonephoto #toomuchlaughing #stradbrokeisland
I have been pottering about on the patio and my Plant Watering Buddy, Elsa, has been keeping me company. I could hear a noise at the side of the house and noticed that Elsa had disappeared. I found her on the outside lounge which is really Digby's spare bed. We hadn't gotten around to organising a Coop for One but looks like we need to now! Her eggs are so small compared to the full-sized Sussex Chooks. #chicken #egg #eggs #chickenlaysanegg #chooks #chickensofinstagram #homegrown #homestead #homesteading #urbanfarming #urbanfarmer #urbanfarm #selfsufficient #selfsufficiency #sequeensland #brisbane #queensland
These are a dwarf variety of Borlotti beans. I have planted one bed out with two rows of the beans, two rows of turnips and one row of melons. So it is not really a rotational or companion planting more a "I rummaged around this morning, found and armful of seed packets I forgot I had bought, most of which are out of date and probably won't germinate but hey let's jam them in and see what happens!" type of planting 😁 #beans #borlotti #borlottibeans #grownfromseed #homegrown #homestead #homesteading #urbanfarming #urbanfarmer #urbanfarm #selfsufficient #selfsufficiency #sequeensland #brisbane #queensland #garden #gardening
I planted these Charentais melons at the end of a row of beds at the edge of the bed. I will train these onto the pathway as no-one really walks down there and I have grown melons on the path before, by accident (the plant was a lot bigger than I thought it would be) and the stone path stops the melon from rotting on the base. #melon #melons #fruit #fruitvines #melonvine #vegetablegarden #homegrown #grownfromseed #homestead #homesteading #urbanfarming #urbanfarm #urbanfarmer #selfsufficient #selfsufficiency #sequeensland #brisbane #queensland #garden #gardening
So this packet was open when I found it which would suggest I tried to grow them. They must not have grown well as I can't recall them and I had no clue if they were a radish, turnip or some mystery vegetable that caught my eye at some point. I turned to Google and initially all the information came up in French which in turn posed the question 'Where the Hell did I buy these?' According to the internet they are a very tasty turnip so I planted two rows.....now we wait 🍽#turnip #grownfromseed #vegetablegarden #homegrown #homestead #homesteading #urbanfarming #urbanfarmer #urbanfarm #selfsufficient #selfsufficiency #sequeensland #brisbane #queensland #gardening #garden
These corn I planted in the bed with the Mint and Johnny Jump-Ups. I managed to fit in three rows of three and then two more on spots the Mint hadn't covered yet. I'm going to try to use up all these seeds before I purchase anymore. I think I'll move towards Heritage varieties. #corn #mint #johnnyjumpup #grownfromseed #homegrown #homestead #homesteading #urbanfarming #urbanfarmer #urbanfarm #selfsufficient #selfsufficiency #sequeensland #brisbane #queensland #gardening #garden
The Queensland Blue are my absolute favourite pumpkin. I can't remember when I bought these seeds but it was possibly at a holiday to Coffs Harbour two years ago when I went a little berserk at a nursery buying seeds and then promptly put them in a drawer upon returning home. Anyway these seeds have been planted two to a hole in three spots under the pear trees. I was going to grow perennial vegetables under all the fruit trees but as space is at a premium these huge pumpkin plants will be just as good. I'm not sure if they'll get enough sun here but time will tell. #pumpkin #pumpkinplant #vegetablegarden #vegetables #qldblue #qldbluepumpkin #homegrown #grownfromseed #homestead #homesteading #urbanfarming #urbanfarmer #urbanfarm #selfsufficient #selfsufficiency #sequeensland #brisbane #queensland #gardening #garden
And this is The Delayed Staking treatment. The Westralia Climbing Beans grow to 1.8 metres ( I'm getting a cold sweat just thinking about that much bean scrambling over the garden paths) so there is no way they can outgrow this baby! I must say a big Thankyou to my husband as he put this together amongst much muttering and swearing but when he is eating the fresh beans he might forgive me its purchase. I also planted Honeypod Peas (the shelling kind) on this arch as well. They are a dwarf form and only grow to 50cm. I planted them from a punnet not seed. #peas #climbingpeas #beans #climbingbeans #grownfromseed #vegetablegarden #vegetable #homegrown #homestead #homesteading #urbanfarming #urbanfarmer #urbanfarm #selfsufficient #selfsufficiency #sequeensland #brisbane #queensland #gardening #garden
The Westralia Climbing Beans are best before August 2018 so luckily I found them shoved in a drawer! They are specifically bred for Australian conditions so that might be helpful. I love the fact the company says NO to GMO ⭐️I have direct sown the seeds, two per hole. I have recognised my own inability to stake in time; I suffer from Delayed Staking Syndrome (sad but true πŸ˜ͺ). In recognition of this and as a means of dealing with Delayed Staking's sad effects I have come up with an ingenious plan ...........#beans #climbingbeans #vegetablegarden #vegetable #grownfromseed #homegrown #homestead #homesteading #urbanfarming #urbanfarmer #urbanfarmer #selfsufficient #selfsufficiency #sequeensland #brisbane #queensland #gardening #garden
In the Tomato bed I have planted two Tigerella, two Costoluto di Marmande (an Italian Heritage Tomato), one cherry tomato Midnight Snack and one yellow cherry tomato Sugar Pop Snack. I also planted two punnets of Green Mignonette lettuce. In this bed I am going to fill out spaces with the 2012 seeds. One row of Ashbrook, one row of Butterhead and two rows of Lamb's lettuce because I can't recall eating it and am keen to try it. Hopefully some of the old seed will still be viable. #vegetablegarden #vegetable #grownfromseed #homegrown #homestead #homesteading #urbanfarming #urbanfarmer #urbanfarm #selfsufficient #selfsufficiency #sequeensland #brisbane #queensland #garden #gardening . NB note to self: the Lamb's lettuce seed are much larger than standard lettuce seed. It was easy to plant two rows from one packet.
In the past I have been a vegetable grower of moderate success. When we lived in Guernsey I was a pro at Brussel sprouts, Broad beans and Beetroot. In Brisbane I have had success with various Tomatoes, Cucumber, Zucchini and the Triffid Cucamelon. I am also fickle. As a result I have accumulated an array of seed packets which I may or may not have actually tried to grow. I have Butterhead lettuce, Lamb's lettuce, Ashbrook lettuce and Rocket all who have a best before date of 2012 😳but I can't bare to throw them out so they are being sprinkled around today and we'll see what happens. #vegetablegarden #vegetable #lettuce #growfromseed #homegrown #homestead #homesteading #urbanfarming #urbanfarmer #urbanfarm #selfsufficient #selfsufficiency #sequeensland #gardening #garden #brisbane #queensland
Northbrook gorge. Tricky little track to walk, but well worth it. Water is crystal clear, and flowing nicely. #sequeensland #moretonbayregion #bushwalk #northbrookgorge #brisbane #weekendouting
The Eureka lemon trees have obviously forgiven me for my previous neglect. A bit of Blood and Bone, Seasol, Chook poo, thick mulch and a good water and two weeks later they have all put on fresh growth and buds. It could be that they forgave me or it could be that they thought they were going to die and had to breed quickly to continue the species. I'll be positive and go with option one. πŸ‹πŸ‹πŸ‹#lemon #lemons #lemontree #fruittree #survivalofthespecies #homegrown #homestead #homesteading #urbanfarming #urbanfarm #urbanfarmer #sequeensland #selfsufficient #selfsufficiency #gardening #garden #fertilizer #mulch #treecare #manure #seaweed #feedthesoil
Treated myself to no running this morning 😊 Instead a family walk at park run, found this hidden gem and picked up local honey made by 6th generation apiariests πŸ˜‹ #organichoney #mtcottonapiaries #mountcotton #mtcotton #mountcottonnursery #treatday #saturdaydoneright #brisbaneviews #logancity #queensland #sequeensland #nursery
New techniques are always welcome. Here we have a site that we can't dig in because of ground contamination. So, these bags are filled with good soil and positioned like coir logs to aid in securing the slope. We then plant trees and shrubs into the bags and by the time that they are well established the bags will have decomposed leaving no trace. #bushinovation #bushregeneration #oxleycreek #sequeensland #jaggeraland #caringforcountry #newtechniques
I bought two metal birds at Fremantle markets in Perth 15 years ago. One of them has broken off its spike but this one is still going strong. Sculptures in the garden always add a little extra interest. #bird #birdsculpture #gardenart #gardensculpture #metalart #metalartwork #mint #herb #herbgarden #vegetablegarden #homegrown #homestead #homesteading #urbanfarming #urbanfarmer #urbanfarm #sequeensland #selfsufficient #selfsufficiency #gardening #garden
