What do you see? ๐Ÿ‘€

Apart from my desperate need for straight lines with my vegetables. And, apart from the crop being shallots ๐ŸŒฑ
I see green shoots on a row of future pickled onions ๐Ÿ˜€

Iโ€™ve had the urge to grow my own onions to pickle and provide for the table over the Christmas period for quite a while, but Iโ€™ve found choosing a suitable variety to make the large, crisp pickled onions I love has been tricky. Iโ€™m growing this crop of shallots to see if theyย make good pickled onions ๐Ÿ˜‹

Have you used shallots like this before?

๐Ÿ’กLesson 14: Never, ever throw out a hummus pot - wrestle them off friends/out of bins (too far?) if you have to. They make perfect mini greenhouses for germinating seeds, then theyโ€™re the just the right size for balancing on windowsills to get maximum sun action โ˜€๏ธ๐ŸŒฑ these nasturtiums are the first things that have prioritised leaves over two-foot long stems (Iโ€™m looking at you, cosmos ๐Ÿ˜ ) and I put it down to these bad boys๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผand also the great Monty Don would be proud of the plastic reuse - and who are we kidding, itโ€™s all about The Don ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿผโ€๐ŸŒพ

~*~Sharing*is*Caring~*~ I noticed I had a bunch of volunteer catnip in my front flower bed and put out a call on Facebook to see if anyone wanted them so they didnโ€™t just get composted. These five plants are all going to new homes and their happy kitties! ๐Ÿฑ

Drying some plantain leaves and calendula flowers to stock up on my natural medicine cabinet to be made into teas, salves, tinctures, etc. I donโ€™t have an indoor hanging space, nor do I have a ceiling hook installed. No problem! I rigged it to hang on my ceiling fan! This spot get lots of airflow and I donโ€™t have to worry about too much sun outside.

I have not had to plant silverbeet in a few years now, every year we have an endless supply as they continue to self seed, none however goes to waste its either used for cooking or as food for our turkeys and chooks! I find it also helps the smaller plants establish as the slugs/bad bugs seem to hang around the spinach which i find is a benefit and a win win for all.

I finally finished digging over one of the worst areas on our plot! Horray! ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐ŸŒพ
I sowed some more climbing beans, sweet peas, sunflowers, carrots, parsnips and chard and the rest of the space will be used for some of our green house seedlings. Now I'm looking at that awefull grass patch and thinking that's next ๐Ÿ˜ฃ But first I must wright everything down or I will forget what's going where! ยฐ

Farmers market goodies! Delicious crunchy new season apples. I planted some new veges today (some lettuce, 2 caulis, brocollis and cabbages, some pea seeds, and a sweet William flower ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜). Itโ€™s starting to look like quite a pot collection on the balcony now! Was a bit dark to get nice photos so check out my story and Iโ€™ll get some goodies at the weekend to pop up here! ๐Ÿ“ธ

[Autumn 2018]
Itโ€™s so lovely having lettuce and baby spinach again! Fresh and crisp, straight from the garden into a meal ๐Ÿ’š Itโ€™s too hot here over summer to grow lettuce and baby spinach, it just bolts or goes bitter and nobody likes it. ๐ŸŒฟ The white piping coming out of the middle of the raised bed is a homemade worm tower - a piece of 100mm plumbing pipe with 1-inch round holes drilled in the sides and a terracotta pot as a lid. You can buy commercial versions of these now, but they are super easy to make yourself cheaply. I like using worm towers as it means the kitchen scraps (the chooks donโ€™t eat) arenโ€™t in a compost heap that vermin can get to, it feeds the worms IN my garden beds and they distribute the casting and worm liquid into the soil where it is needed without me having to haul it around! Super easy way to improve the soil and reduce rats with little effort on my behalf ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
The netting is simply to keep nocturnal moths from laying eggs ๐Ÿ› and the chooks from having a feast ๐Ÿ“

First voodoolily in my garden is in bloom, hope the rest will follow soon! On the first day of flowering they smell like a mix of rotten eggs and poop, but I donโ€™t mind.

"If it's your job to eat a frog, it's best to do it first thing in the morning. And If it's your job to eat two frogs, it's best to eat the biggest one first" - Mark Twain.
I think this is great advice for weeding. I've got into the habit of doing a little weeding first at every visit to the allotment ๐Ÿธ ๐ŸŒฑ How's the weeds on your plot now that spring has finally arrived?

#Sadafuli or #periwinkle or #vinca are, as the name suggests, always in bloom! ๐ŸŒธ๐Ÿƒ๐ŸŒธ A good idea to have as part of your garden or #terracegarden. Easy to maintain and they look so delicate and pretty! #whatsinmyhand #nativeflowers #growyourownflowers #flowerpower

Thereโ€™s some gusts coming in so I thought it was about time to get some support in for the broad beans! I normally weave twine round bamboo canes to make a type of fence...but since Iโ€™ve got wire to stop the girls getting in Iโ€™m making the most of it. These were sown over a month period with the tallest planted at the back to stop the sun being blocked to the smaller ones ๐Ÿ’š

Growing Zucchini indoors has been such a fun learning experience! The biggest challenge has been watching the blossoms closely in order to hand pollinate. These two blossoms will be open very soon. Anyone have any good tips or tricks for this process? ๐Ÿ‘Œ

I donโ€™t remember what these were called, but they are SO TINY! They produce even tinier ones and then those fall off and root and make more. If anyone can tell me what they are that would be awesome! So pleased they survived the zone 5/6 winter too.

When your garden gives you abundance, you enjoy all itโ€™s wonderful flavors! Yesterday, I harvested tons of different kales. We made a hearty salad with Red Russian and Russian Frills kale for dinner, along with other garden goodies. Then I turned the lacinato kale into black pepper kale chips for a healthy delicious snack, which also goes will with a fried egg for breakfast. We will be making another large kale salad tonight too! I love being able to shop from my own backyard. How about you? What are you โ€œbuyingโ€ for dinner today?

Gotcha! ๐Ÿ› by far my biggest nemesis in the garden currently is the humble caterpillar. I check the plants for eggs every day only to find carnage a few hours later. Where are they hiding? ๐Ÿค” My favorite Tuscan kale is affected the most but it seems even the spring onions are fair game.

One way to completely avoid all plastic food packaging is to grow your own veg #andkeepiteco!
How beautiful are these glass gem corn?๐Ÿ’Ž๐ŸŒฝ Those pink and purple kernels are just stunning.
If you'd like to find out what you should be planting this month and the months ahead, take a look at the link in our bio from @the_rhs. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
Do you have any veggie growing tips? ๐Ÿฅ•๐ŸŒฝ๐ŸŒถ๏ธ๐Ÿ†

๐ŸŒŽ Earth Day and some recent events has me contemplating how my individual actions can make a difference ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’™
.
๐Ÿ“–๐Ÿ“š I'm currently reading the book "Drawdown โ€“ The Most Comprehensive Plan Ever Proposed To Reverse Global Warming" and it has really shed some light on the impact our food choices make on the environment ๐Ÿ“’๐Ÿ’ก
.
Raising livestock accounts for a larger percentage of greenhouse gas emissions (between 15% - 50%) ๐Ÿ„๐Ÿ–๐Ÿ’ฉ
.
SO I was thinkingโ€ฆ I recycle โ™ป๏ธ I take my reusables ๐Ÿด๐Ÿ›๏ธ I compost at home ๐Ÿƒ๐ŸŒ I try my best to support local, buy from the market and grow some veges etc ๐Ÿ…๐ŸŒฑ BUT I still feel like I can be doing SOOO much more.
.
Naturally I think my next step should be to have a more plant-rich diet ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒถ๏ธ๐Ÿ„๐Ÿ† It seems a little daunting but I am up for the challenge ๐Ÿ’ชโœ”๏ธ
.
Eating with a lighter footprint not only reduces emissions โฌ‡๏ธ but is also healthier (leading to lower rates of chronic disease) and does less damage to ecosystems and freshwater resources ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒง๏ธ๐Ÿšœ
.
"Making a transition to a plant-based diet may well be the most effective way an individual can stop climate change" ๐ŸŒŽ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’™
.
INSPIRE MEโ€ฆ What initiatives are you taking to reduce your carbon footprint? Let me know below or send a DM ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ“ฉ๐Ÿค—
