❤️ #whywegrow ❤️ "Clementine, I grow for you because you deserve it. Your smiles encourage us to work harder, but your childlike fascination in the field forces us to slow down and appreciate the many things that make farming so special. I grow to support your needs as an awesome little human and I grow to show you how hard work often pays off, but sometimes losses are unavoidable. I grow for you because my father grew for me. I grow because I love you more than growing itself."
Nicholas, Owner of @grow_farm in Bush, Louisiana
Hands down without a doubt in my mind my favourite flower..... the Globe Artichokes are back for the summer. Huge call I know because I do grow and absolutely love so many other wonderful flowers in my garden, however these make my heart sing like no others do. With their iridescent purple centre they actually look like they are glowing in the borders, standing as tall as me well above the other flowers on long straight stems, they are so statuesque. The only challenger will be their cousins the Cardoons I grew from seeds earlier in the year and have just transplanted out into the garden. I have been told ther are like Globe Artichokes on steriods and I cannot wait for them to flower!
Homegrown burpless cucumbers. 🥒🥒🥒 They’re called burpless because their skin is thinner and they contain lower levels of curcubitacin, the stuff that can make cucumber ends a little bitter and make you burp. 😄
Since I saw many posts about best nine, so here’s mine 😋. What a great year and I feel so loved 💚🌿.. Thank you so much for following my account and thank you for all of your support. Happy Gardening and Cheers from Bali 🥂☀️🤗
It’s December 14th and the lows have been in the twenties here this week but this jalapeño pepper plant seems to be doing just fine hanging out in the garage. Kinda makes me wish I had a proper greenhouse to extend the season for all sorts of plants.
One of our favorite holiday DIYs: dried citrus decorations! They smell like Christmas - and you can compost them at the end of the season! We love adding cinnamon and cloves for a fragrant zing! What are your favorite holiday DIYs?

Sticking to tips from permaculture master Geoff Lawton I tossed in a big chunk of freezer burned lamb from my last lamb spit. The preference is road kill for a more diverse microbial count but this sufficed. It took 5 days with the “hot cook” Berkeley composting method to reduce it down to bones. It important to have a 140F-160F heap going as it kills harmful pathogens in the protein. Makes for super compost! PS-It doesn’t stink. When it stinks the recipe is wrong. #thebohemianrealtor#berkeleycompost#hotcomposting#organicgardening#growyourownfood#natureisbest
Gardening is an exercise in faith and trust. You can do everything by the book, but if the conditions aren't right it can all come to nothing. Last year our plum tree failed to produce any fruit. Mr P's aunty said it was due to the very wet weather when the bees were pollinating. // This year the plum tree has exploded. The tree is at the top of our property, near the driveway. As Mr P walks down to our house at the end of the day, he fills his pockets with plums to present to me in the kitchen. This is one of many baskets that we've filled. This week Mr P turned these ones into his first batch of plum jam for Christmas presents. #plums#homegrown#growyourownfood#thehappygardeninglife#kiwichristmas#petitejoys#seekthesimplicity#beautyintheordinary#gardening

So, there is an olive tree 🌳on the plot next to ours, it has grown so some of its branches are long and go into other areas. The whole summer and last summer we were looking out for olives. As London isn't particularly Mediterranean in climate I just assumed they wouldn't grow, so we were waiting to see if they ever would. Much to our surprise we saw the tree was full of olives, in December! So, I got very excited and took one of the tree, stuffed it straight into my mouth and....spat it right back out! 🤢 It was one of the most bitter and pungent things I have ever eaten and definitely not like the olive taste I was expecting. 🤣 Well, at least they look good! 😆
Maiden voyage attempting to grow fodder for the chickens because I hear it multiplies your feed dollars times 5! Now I like that kind of math when it comes to reducing our critter feed bill. #wheat#fodder#chickenfeed#growyourownfood
