Scapes scapes scapes!

Sometimes the best moments in the school garden are unplanned and just happen when you leave space for curiosity and conversations to unfold. This afternoon was just such a time. 💚🌱 #happyplace

Solstice harvest ❤️🌞

This evening’s harvest🌱💚

#whatsfordinner on Father’s Day: Dad’s favourite.... homegrown, homemade pesto. 💚

Forgot to check on my mason bees. 🐝 Thanks to these sweeties, and the ground bees in my yard, I’m having a bumper crop of berries this year. Every day we can pick two bowls full. 😋

Local honey 🍯 🐝Stories about people making a difference, local farmers, seeds, and land use at @richmondfoodsecuritysociety AGM yesterday. #BeTheChange

My morning garden watering buddy, but out of focus because no glasses. 👓 Aging sure is interesting. 🤪Edit: now that I have them on, it’s really not that bad 🤷🏻‍♀️

I’m excited to play with this new-to-me plant, mullein. I don’t have enough space in my small garden for a big harvest, so this will be an experiment to see how much oil infusion I can make with the flowers. Next spring will try a tea from the leaves.

And now breakfast with my berries: overnight oats, chia seeds, flax seeds, maple syrup and almond milk. #backyardbounty

More dessert.
It is a bumper year for berries in my garden. I have never been able to pick these many strawberries at once (usually just a few here and there), and I can’t keep up with the raspberries. I will be washing and freezing some tonight.
