🤗 So exiting my seedlings are doing well in the new raised garden beds Neil sorted out for me for my first Veggie Patch! We’ve got cherry tomatoes, egg plant, zucchini, cucumber, capsicum, pumpkin, beetroot, lettuce, heaps of herbs and blueberries/strawberries too. 🤞
Just like each plant is a unique expression so is this reflected in its seed as well. Currently we are delighting in all the different textures, sizes, colours, and scents as we wrap up seed cleaning for another year. In the coming weeks we will be working on packaging up these lustrous jewels and readying them for new adventures in new soils beyond. As we go along, we are updating ravensongseeds.com with new varieties for the coming season, adding in new growing info and loads of new photos too 📷🌱🌸An abundance of goodness in store for the new year ahead ✨🌿
All children should experience the joy of growing their own food 🥒 A sense of achievement at our house. We are winning the war on weeds and fighting back against the naughty bunnys to grow healthy food for summer 😊
Some of the amazing squash seeds we are saving for next season! This variety of heirloom squash has been handed down by @francismallmann and is a variety we will be proud to continue to grow for seasons to come! #innfarmer#innstyle#seedsaving
Today one of our local #richmond residents brought in Italian green beans and Roman beans! They are from a parent plant that dates back to 1956 when they were brought over from Italy. Saving seeds is magical, thanks so much for this donation!

Long overdue photos of the Tanzanian highlands and our first farming project at Mufindi Farm where we established a Permaculture Institute, a tree nursery and a seed saving company. You can see the land we developed in the picture of the farm, it's the red patch of land in the upper-centre of the photo, right of the greenhouses and below the white hut. I'm in the process of building the farm's website: www.practicalpermaculturetanzania.com, check it out when it's done in early Dec (and help me find all the typos, please and thanks!).
Faktor apa saja yang menentukan kualitas dan kuantitas bunga, bakal benih baru yang dihasilkan oleh tanaman ? .
Di foto pertama, 1 butterhead yang sengaja dipelihara sampai fase generatif ditanam di Hidroponik, 500 mdpl, yang kedua, secara organik di 40 mdpl.
Ridin' along with 180 tomato plants 🍅 baby, when I noticed you... 🎵
These leggy ladies are late to get down down to soil town, but tomorrow their number is up! Courtesy of my old pal @juliaandymeldrum 's Dad, John Towie, this variety is a heritage one called Challenge that he has seed saved here in Manjimup for over 30 years. Uh-huh. I've tried a number of varieties in the intervening years since I last obtained plants from John and to be honest... nothing compares with Challenge, and I'm pretty loathe to bother with much else anymore. Yep, grosse lisse, beefsteak, he's been there done all that and more, and long ago moved on. This variety has large, round fruit with ample flesh inside, making it not only ideal for eating, but also sun drying, cooking, sauces and preserves... ALL the boxes ticked. I picked up another roll of drip line today, so if all goes well, we will fill the three new beds we've prepared with 99 of these babies!
Preserving and you-pick events are nigh for 2018, so cheffy and events mavericks should inbox me now with 🍅 tomato-based hopes and dreams 😏🤤. Likewise any tomato growing hopefuls late to the planting party should message me now. In a never before, and never to be seen again offer we are giving away up to 80 plants tomorrow ✨🌈! If you'd like to make a donation to Stellar Violets in thanks feel welcome, but not obliged. Tomorrow only for this giveaway of Challenge tomato plants as these ladies are SO ready. I have no means to pot on and keep.. so hands up now for plants !😍☝🏻🤘🏻🖖🏻🤙🏻🍅🍅🍅🍅🍅🍅
Tomorrow's dinner probably. Bit bashed about cos him outdoors has scooped out the seeds to save because 'Crown Prince' is such a top notch winter squash and all-round gourmet food :) On some randomly selected but suitable vintage china :). Now stashed squashed in fridge but won't be long before it's eaten.
Collecting seed from my Tulsi today. Step 1: Let plant go to seed. Step 2: Once seed is brown, run cupped hand up the stem - releasing the seeds and an indulgent scent of spiced citrus basil bliss - no wonder the honeybees 🐝 and the blue-banded bees 💙🐝love it so much. Step 3: Plant seeds or share with community. #tulsi#basil#bees#nativebees#seeds#seedsaving
All said and done these are the specimens I saved for seed for next year. In an ideal world I'd be saving seed from all the varieties I grow, but hand pollinating over 100 different varieties while working a full-time job isn't exactly feasible. So I just saved seeds from things that were either exceptionally interesting or something I've been working on for a while.
