We had all but given up on this thornless blackberry after over two years in the ground and it just say there, barely a stick...Now it's bursting with green shrubby growth on numerous canes and has tons of flowers. It shows us that each plant is different and some just take longer than others to adjust and get established. We keep learning this lesson over and over as we watch what happens after we plant. Sometimes it's years of almost nothing, and then suddenly whoosh! #dontgiveuptoosoon #thornlessblackberry #homegardening #frontyardfoodgarden #permaculturegarden #foodforest

Jerusalem Artichokes - roasties!! Tossed in olive oil sprinkled with sea salt and a few twigs of thyme thrown on top and baked - really more-ish !! I was asked about cooking them and I have a few favourites this is one of them!! They are not at all like potatoes - their texture is more like a radish when raw or a beetroot when you cook them. I grow them every year now - very tough plants!! at Auckland, New Zealand

Popped by @theflowerspot here in Vernon for the first time today! 😍💕 - It's funny, I've known of the place for 3 or 4 summers now. Cruising around exploring, passed their super fun "tree" flower planter things in the parking lot 😍💕 - 2017, first year gardening, I guess I forgot about them living down in Kelowna. Then last year I remembered them the day After they closed!! What are the chances?! 😂 - Thisss year though, I got over there! 😍💕 - They've got quite a selection! ..including not only the purple night sky petunias, not only the burgundy ones, but PINK ones too!!! 😍😍😍💕💕💕 - I Love flowers! 😁😍💕 - Oh! & I got some Black Aztec Corn 🌽 How Awesome is that?!? 😍💕 - & if you're into Fairy Gardens, they've got allll sorts of goodies! & Bee 🐝 homes! 😁💕 - #theflowerspot #petunias #succulents #pansies #heliotrope #blackcorn #flowersmakemehappy #edibleflowers #flowersforthebees #flowers #growfoodnotlawns #growagarden #growSomething #natureisAmazing #foodismedicine #naturalliving #foodforest #yardtotable #urbanfarming #supportlocal #nature #garden #gardening #permaculture #exploreVernon #VernonBC #Okanagan #Okanaganlivng #appreciate #LOVE

The world is turning green again 💚 The Chicago hardy fig I've overwintered in the #geodesicgreenhouse finally came out to play. My childhood friend is kind enough to bring me a truckload of woodchips Wednesday, & I think I may actually be ready for them! So much prep work and not to mention spring cleanup. The 20 year old back fence is every so slowly getting replaced, I'm excited to see how nice a fresh privacy fence will tie the place together :) I've been doing lots of work on my website lately. I'd love it if you guys checked out this brand new section I created where I've partnered with Amazon to share direct links to the gardening products I use, love and recommend. If you're so inclined as to purchase something through my Garden Center, I collect a small commission to help fund my food forest and permaculture projects. It's something new I'm trying out, so I hope you guys enjoy it! 🌱 It's at earthflowerherbs.com\gardencenter 🌱 It took me days to put together but I think it'll all be worth it. I'm also thinking about blogging more seriously, but I guess what's holding me back is wondering if anyone will even actually read it! What do you guys think? . . . #hardcoregardener #urbangardener #urbanorganicgardener #foodforest #permaculturegarden #permaculture #420 #happyeaster #geodesicdome #geodome #greenhouse #growfood #gardenersofchicago #gardendesign #backtoeden #urbanhomesteading #chicagoblogger #gardengains #gardenart #gramoftheday #gramyourgarden #giy #foodpreservation #smallbusiness #smallscalefarming

Kinda in love with my home gym now that I have the book shelf out, the racks in, etc. I will never go back to an industry gym. The next step from here will be to build an out building gym. This will suffice for now. I have the closet full of bands, barbells, dumbbells, KBS, maces, and accoutrement. Also cannot beat that view of the food forest! #homegym #workout #squat #deadlift #bench #powerlift #foodforest #homegrownbig

Loquats are starting to ripen! They are almost a month behind last year’s timing. I like to just eat these as a snack in the garden, and use the excess for jam and for dehydrating for trail mix and granola. The birds love them too so I usually cover the tree as sections ripen. I use a mesh fabric so birds don’t get stuck in it. #loquats #fruit #jam # #fruit #springblooms #orchard #permaculture #foodforest #backyardgarden #mygarden #mybackyard #growyourownfood #growfoodnotlawns #freefood instafood #fruittree #organicfood #organiclife #urbanhomestead #greenthumb #eathealthy #letfoodbethymedicine #sandiegolife #socal #zone10b #blossomvalleylife #ilovemygarden

Super soursop 😋 this one fell from the tree when it was perfectly ready! 🌿I think one of the best investments you can make for your home (and health!) is to grow your own food! Whether you buy or swap or replant from seed/s, you will save money in the long run if you look after them ie water! Fertilize, mulch, position correctly - sun/shade, and have plant species that are suited to your climate (subtropical, frost required etc). And think of the bonus of low miles, eating in season and getting some exercise and vitamin D from the sun while you garden! 🌱 Win win all around 👌🏼🤗 . . . . . #backyardgardening #gardening #soursop #gyi #lowincome #familylife #simplelife #growyourown #food #foodforest #foodisfree #ecothrifty #savemoney #thrifty #fresh #vegan #fruit #permaculture #islandlife #ripe #rawfood #seasonalfood #lowbudgetlife #fruittrees #lowmiles #forage #wastefree #naturalfood

We’re currently trying to manifest some roadkill. While pawpaws are pollinated by a variety of flying insects, their pollination can be greatly encouraged by the presence of flies. Hanging a dead squirrel, other small mammal or bird(something that will decay in a reasonable amount of time) can be hung amongst the pawpaw blooms to attract flies; increasing your odds of successful pollination #manifestationroadkill #roadkill #pawpaw #pawpawbloom #northamericanfruit #favoritefruit #foodforest #offgrid #missouri #missourifruit #wildfruit #permaculture #foragemore #shopless #foragedfood #growmorefruit #seasonaleating at Missouri

Earth Day is this Monday April 22nd and to celebrate we will be eating from our organic edible hedge! We recently added to our warehouse space and whenever you build in an industrial area you have to add a certain amount of plants as a hedge. We asked if we could use Blueberries, Persimmons, Olives, Blackberries, Figs and one other plant (can you spot it?) instead of ornamental plants. The powers that be said yes! Thank you @st.johnscounty . These plants are all perennial which means they don’t have to be re planted every year like annual fruits or vegetables do. Much less work and the soil will improve over time. As I type we are in the early stages of our one acre food forest right next to our warehouse and this little edible hedge (153 plants) is giving us encouragement and a sweet reward!

Magic. There's just no good reason why today should have turned out as well as it did. The weather held off, the people showed up, and all 400+ native plants were planted. Thank you to everyone who made this happen. Preston's Spring Cave Park got a lot of care and love today. . . . #nativeplants #permaculture #ecologicalrestoration #wildedibles #foodforest #lexingtonky #lexington #kentucky #foraging #sharethelex #cardinalvalleyneighborhood #prestonsspringcave #caves #karst #wildsprings @livegreenlex @lexkyparks at Cardinal Valley, Lexington

STINGING NETTLE SATURDAY! Perennial Stinging Nettle plants (Urtica dioca) are at @artemisia.nursery right now, so go get some of that plant medicine good good! ⚡️Nettles are used for allergies, asthma, arthritis and joint pain, blood fortification, water retention, lactation, hair skin nails, and more. Use in teas, soups, pesto, spring greens, and broths, tinctures and all sorts of medicine making. It’s delicious and tastes like emerald green goodness beyond compare. It’s also part of the #biodynamic compost preps to enhance flavors of crops, enliven soil health and Biodynamics Rudolph Steiner said nettle is like “an infusion of intelligence for the soil.” Stinging nettle is an herbalists main squeeze and for good reason! 💚👁🙌🏽 Also used for energetic protection. PS This is the perennial Urtica, not the annual one you will find in spring, and will continue to yield and grow. #stingingnettlesaturday #ediblegarden #foodforest #growyourownmedicine #herb PPS - There’s also #gotukola , #brahmi , Chinese Mint #bohe and other faves right now at @artemisia.nursery too.💋 at Artemisia Nursery

Getting joy from getting to know each and every student in the PDC. Figuring out how they learn, what they need to gain the confidence to move forward with their life goals, taking their feedback and shaping the class as we reach the halfway point. Amazingly this is the 12th course that I’ve had the opportunity to co-teach. The best part about it is the students, their passion and work ethic, and getting to participate in that. Nothing but gratitude! . . . . . #permaculture #permacultura #permaculturedesign #agroforestry #soil #farm #farming #farmlife #knowyourfarmer #sustainable #sustainableliving #sustainability #organic #organico #foodforest #centralamerica #tropical #designideas #designinspiration #dowhatyoulove #livecreatively #liveauthentic #tropicalliving #instagram #design #designers #landscapedesign #puravida #costarica at Rancho Mastatal Sustainability Education Center

Our Big Jim loquat tree will look quite different tomorrow afternoon as I graft some new varieties onto this beautiful tree. We may lose the beautiful form and structure it has established, but we want to get extended season and more varieties to eat. Especially after tasting the delicious fruit from our own tree for the first time today! #巨蛋枇杷 #枇杷樹 #枇杷 #bigjimloquat #loquat #loquattree #foodforest #ediblegarden #backyardorchardculture #ediblelandscaping #sunkengarden at Tempe, Arizona

Bloodroot, my friend. I'm so happy to see you. Though I have struggled in my past, I now have the privilege of enjoying my own yard. . Not everyone has a yard. . I've been so creative, coming up with all the cheapest ways to grow plants wherever I lived. Ice cream bucket arugula, flower vines along stair railings in the only spot of sun. . Now, I have a yard <3. . It's not just any yard. It's in the Driftless: a place where western and eastern plants merge into a unique habitat along the Mississippi River among the bluffs. . So, I get to watch the ephemeral show right off my porch. These beautiful Sanguinaria canadensis grow beside a maple, next to the chicken coop. . . . #driftless #galenail #galenaillinois #driftlessgalena #springephemerals #nativeflowers #bloodroot #wildcraft #backyardmedicine #whiteflowers #forestflowers #forestwalk #forestyard #foodforest

I accomplished a lot in the Garden today not only did I refresh and plant new beds but I clear it out grass put down a bed of cardboard as weed blocker and put down wood chips for a walking path in my garden. My goal is to have my entire backyard as a Edible Garden with walking paths and each week I am working on this. It's not all going to be done at one time it's just going to be steady work in progress and today I took a huge step and I'm proud of myself. 🌱🌿💚 💚🌿🌱 #blackgirlswithgardens #growfromseed #girlswithgardens #landscaping #growyourgreens #growyourownfood #growyourown #greenthumb #veggiegarden #growsomethinggreen #ediblegarden #backyardgardener #foodforest #organicgardening

what's a PawPaw🤔 ... It's the largest tree fruit native to our neck of the woods is what! In the future I'm gonna grow these babies on my farms and in my orchard...until then I'm giving away the seeds...LETS REINSTALL THESE BUTTIES TOGETHER!! They do great in partial shade so PawPaws are perfect to integrate into a border of trees you might already have in your yard...Want to take part dm me so I can send you the seed!  #hudsonpapaws#farmersmarket#hudsonvalley#foodforest#permaculture#ediblelandscaping

This is the current state of our Drink Forest Garden that we’re cultivating at the incredible @rockfarmveg therapeutic community growing project in west #sussex. It doesn’t look like much edible food is growing, but we have planted about 120 young #edible trees in this area now ! (They’re all very young and most are just coming into leaf so are barely visible here...) But we have everything from Apples to Quinces, Horseradish to Lemon Mint and sea-buckthorn to cherry plum growing in this landscape. Once a monoculture potato farm - soon to be an abundant #forest #garden that will both supply the ingredients for our #botanicaldrinks as well as be one of the spaces that can be fertilised by our brewery compost #forestgardening This is also where we are making a modern version of the #terrapreta with the burn to charcoal stoves innovated by our freind Brian. We’ll be making a lot of #biochar and gardening here until this landscape is a thriving self-sustaining #foodforest and an example of how we can restore biodiversity whilst also meeting our own needs for delicious #local food and drink. @floroadmarket are already doing it with this site - growing tons of #seasonal veg below this area of the site. We are bringing the secrets of ancient fermentation and biochar to the table. 🍻 Drink forest gardens for ecosystem restoration #ecosystemrestoration !! ✊️🌱🌳🍄🐌🌎🐝💚

Leonardo’s birthday is coming up. And being the most efficient person of the family during harvest, we dicided that he wished for bushes and tree with fruits, berries and nuts. And with the great companionship of grandmother and grandfather, he went to the plant nursery and got two pear trees, a red and a green hazel, two apple trees, a Tay berry and a white currant. Although we have our suspicion that he doesn’t quite understand that these plants will provide him with delicious food, we are sure he will enjoy the harvest. #forestlove #apples #gardeningisfun #garden_explorers #gardenstyle #gardengoals #gardeninspo #gardening #gardener #gardeners #growfoodnotlawns #growyourfood #growfood #tree #tree_love #treelove #treemagic #appletree #fruittree #fruittrees #permacultura #forestgarden #foodforest #permaculture #sustainablefarming #sustainableagriculture #orchard at Family In The Forest

So, we harvested the fully ripe Big Jim loquat. It was absolutely delicious! The flesh melts in your mouth, with slightly firm peach like texture. Perfect balance of sweet and tart like a combination of mango, peach and apricot. My husband and I savored half of this fruit each and looking forward for the other one to ripen in a few days. I am going to see if I can learn more from Taiwanese farmers about pruning and feeding program to get more blooms next year! #eatyouryard #growfoodnotlawns #loquat #bigjimloquat #loquatfruit #枇杷 #巨蛋枇杷 #foodforest #backyardorchardculture at Tempe, Arizona

Finally finished digging the #hugulkultur bed. The currant and berry shrubs are all doing wonderfully, as are the fruit and nut trees! We’ve been out to water the young trees on the #sheptonmallet #foodforest plot. The figs are slow to show their buds, but that was expected, unlike the cherry, apple, plum pears, that are all flowering nicely. . . . #regenerativeagriculture #permaculture #permaculturedesign #thefoodforestproject #agroforestry #johnthakara #bioregional #organicfood

Do you ever get seeds and wonder "what the heck am I going to do with this?" This is rue, from my dear friend Cissy. I have no idea what I'll do with rue, but she gave them to me, so I started them because I love her. We'll figure out what to do with the rue later. 😀🌱 at Providence, Rhode Island
