So many thoughts swirling around my head when I saw this sign.
Did someone translate this for the birds, bees and wildlife?
Did you know that when you buy conventional produce, even if these toxic chemicals don't directly effect you, they've already leeched into our water streams causing damage to the health of our planet.
Vote with your fork. It's an act that can have very real impacts for local farmers, our amazing community and our future here on this planet--we all feel it in a positive way when you vote with your fork and choose local, organic food.

Two separate sheriff cars crossed double yellow lines out of and into the carpool lane today without blinkers on my commute to work. Nothing out of the ordinary to be honest. Keep the rubber side down out there y’all.

Most humans have no idea what species of insects this is. For allof you who do not know... these are the larva of lady bugs. these baby ladybug need 10 times more aphids then their parents, if you need all that protein to produce wings and go through #metamorphosis ...
Once the adult ladybug has found a food source , she/they will lay many many eggs and these eggs will hatch into larva, they almost resemble salamanders so if you ever see one of these in your garden do not squish ...and I repeat do not squish, have a good day everyone ... #onelove#ladybugs#beneficialinsects #foodweb#soilfoodweb#notillgardening #feedthesoil#insects#microbes#Fungi#bacteria#hyphae#biology #microbiology #schoolgarden#teachingkidswherefoodcomesfrom #gardenfarms

Welp, had to turn the compost pile and add more carbon (leaves) and nitrogen (used coffee grounds and vegetable waste) to help feed the compost to get it back hot again. May have to put a tarp over it with this Texas weather not acting right. .

Hubby was super busy creating our compost mountain today, with a little help from our neighbours tractor. He has planted 1500 garlic this year and was the inspiration for me giving flower farming a try. We are looking ahead to building our soil for next season and this is part of the process. So thankful for a super clever and resourceful garden (and life!) partner.

Fungi vs insect. Fascinating!

It’s a picture of fungi that have killed an insect (a Thrip). The Fungi ate through the insect’s exoskeleton and consumed its nervous system. It then reproduces by sending out spores (the flower like things in the center of the picture).⠀

Collected some leaves for compost pile. Restacked said pile it had dropped to 60 degrees. Tree down on the fence. And moved the chicken tractor/cold frame up on blocks to add working room. On a farm as with life, their is always something that can be done, to prepare for tommorow.

The highest point in New Hanover County folks! YES, IT IS OUR LANDFILL! This is the current look of the New Hanover Landfill. In another 4-6 months this current cell will close. 40 acres of pine forest were just cleared where the next landfill cell will reside and operate. 30-50% of our current waste landing in the landfill is organic waste or compostable materials that can be composted! That’s a huge percentage that could be diverted to extend our current landfills lifetimes, save some tree’s, cut back greenhouse gases and save taxpayer money!

Every now and then my career sets challenges in front of me that test my patience and resolve. As a leader of people, sometimes it’s hard to find the strength to continue pushing. When these times come I tend to open one of my favorite books by Dale Carnegie. Today, I opened it to find a photo of the team that taught me so much.

If you know me, you know I don’t believe “things happen for a reason” and I firmly believe that you have more control over the outcome of your life than you think. This moment challenges that belief; this photo and the page that it was stuck between spoke to me. It’s as if my past self knew this day would come and intentionally placed this here so that I would find the courage to keep fighting a good fight the right way. I’m so blessed to have worked with so many unique and beautiful people the past 8 years.
A Drop of Honey.

She certainly looks like a producer!

And that's a wrap on our first season of #hops. There might be some great opportunities for me to provide hops to local #brewers in the future, so here's hoping each coming season's success continues to #grow!

trying to create a more zero waste footprint and one thing I’ve been doing is putting ALL organic waste into compost. i saw in a documentary it takes 25 YEARS for a lettuce head to break down in landfill. wtf. feed it back to the soil!!! sometimes I can’t be bothered composting my kitchen scraps but then I think about this fact and how landfills are designed not to allow things to breakdown, it quickly snaps me back. also try not using plastic produce bags, even if you they are biodegradable. they don’t breakdown how they’re intended to. 100% post-consumer recycled plastic is better than biodegrade #zerowaste

Grey day for remembering the #blueskies of this weekend. We're #greeninglafayette with our #barley #covercrop to #feedthesoil and #preventerosion all winter. #worksmarternotharder #growyourown #resilience

**COMPOST TEA**
We are definitely converts and use it on our plants quite religiously every 2-3 weeks when they are in their infancy. As we have only been at our site for 2 years we are still working to improve our soil (especially inside the glasshouse), and this does the trick!
Quite simply it’s a liquid fertiliser and extremely easy to make! #composttea #feedthesoil #itsallaboutthesoil #flowerfarmer #britishflowers #somersetgrown #grownnotflown #flowersfromthefarm
