Did you know that worms have 5 hearts? That's a whole lotta love. We loved learning about vermicomposting at Maxie's Garden during yesterday's workshop.

It’s a nutrient deficiency... clovers pull nitrogen out of the air to add to the soil! So if you have patches in your lawn that have clover, that soil is in need of nutrients and the clovers arrive to add it back in!

This one looks like fireworks.. #naturaltiedye #feedthesoil #clovermeditations

Dialed in! Always on point with quality & consistency. We’ve been doing this for nearly 25yrs. Through much research, trial and error we know what our worms like. - Hit us up if you want to talk about getting ready for round 3 using Vermicompost & Vermi-Extract

The cover crop is getting mown in our new greenhouse by Phoebe - her first time on the ol' walk-behind. We may not have a roof on yet, but by hook or by crook we'll have tomatoes in soon! #springiscoming #doallthethings #dothemnow #fiteverythinginbeforeitrainsagain #springmadness #marketgarden #greenhouse #covercrop #soilfertility #feedthesoil

A few pics from my second plot which is the no dig half plot. From a thistle jungle to productive plot in just a couple of months, everything seems to love growing in leaf mould. Next year my main plot will also turn to no dig due to its success on the half plot.

I don't know which is more exciting, digging up delicious potatoes, or all the the nitrogen nodules I'm finding on the roots of the vetch I planted with the potatoes #feedthesoil #feedtheplants #feedthepeople

UP9 🦄💩 on day 17. The small light in the middle was an attempt to slow down the stretch with some 5000k spectrum...didn't seem to help much!

A close friend and great farmer (far better than myself) recently asked me for a few simple gardening tips while preparing to teach a class. No great tips came to mind straight away, so I offered my simple approach to tending the land and raising #crops. If you want to learn a lot of #agricultural development with #sustainability in mind, I suggest you follow @dirtygirlgreens. She is putting these simple, yet powerful concepts to work in a big way on a daily basis.
.
1. Know what to expect from your crops
2. Feed the soil
3. Train the crops

"#biochar and #perlite make a nice combination. What do you inoculate your biochar with? I keep it simple... bear piss lots of it!!" Reposted from @sacredorganicsoils

We’re trying different varieties of the ‘Three Sisters’ guild in different bed types. The ‘Three Sisters’ is an indigenous mutually beneficial polyculture: the squash serves as a ground cover and the corn is support for the beans that fix nitrogen into the soil in return. We’re growing Blue Hopi corn, a variety that has a long history in the arid southwest, cultivated by the Hopi people. This variety generally has 30% more protein than yellow corn.
We’re also trying Tepary beans, a very hardy drought resistant bean that has been cultivated here in the southwest for hundreds of years, long before Europeans set foot on this land. .

We’re comparing a new double-dug bed with sunken beds, and with individual sunken basins. .

Who else believes that all city streets should be lined with food? Plants and flowers are beautiful for the urban environment, but why not make many of them perennial edibles? Recently, I walked past multiple beds in the middle of a huge sidewalk flourishing with this beautiful Russian kale variety🌿💜 Healthy, clean, fresh food must become the norm, not this fast food crap that has additives and a slew of other unhealthy ingredients that make the consumer, you, addicted to the product. If a food looks drastically different from its natural state (how it looked when it was harvested) than it has been processed...find something else to nourish your body with💥 You body deserves better.

Payin’ rent! First eggs from this years chickens!

Sunday Funday we received over an inch and a half of rain. Farming doesn't stop due to stormy weather. We potted up winter squash, transplanted cucumbers, summer squash and zucchini, direct sowed lima beans, installed drip irrigation, mulched bare beds and tarped new ones-- all in the rain. To be honest, it was a welcome reprieve from the blaring summer heat.
The power was knocked out due to lightning striking a powerline on our property but after a brief intermission we carried on and had a very productive farm day.

Yellow squash and sweet potato going bonkers. #ithacagarden #feedthesoil #anyoneneedasquash

It’s moments like these that makes me wonder why I garden. This year I had a bumper crop of plums... that were infested. Plum maggots and brown mold all over. The outcome, I only had two edible plums. So I gave the tree a good pruning and took off all the plums so the tree can concentrate on healing and would have better airflow. Hopefully next year will have a better outcome.
At least all those infested plums didn’t go to waste. They went into my very hot compost. 😈🔥

"A story of biochar…
Biochar is a charcoal like substance that has basically gone a step further. While charcoal can usually still be burned as a fuel, biochar, if done properly, will have all of the remaining volatile oils and combustible carbon structures removed from its mass. This is done by a process known as pyrolysis. Pyrolysis is the baking of biomass in an oven-like structure with little to no oxygen. We do this on the farm with an old 44 gallon drum that has breathing holes cut around its base and sitting on fire resistant blocks for better air flow. Once loaded in the base with combustibles and burning well…(we use the wood of fallen or dead trees and waste bamboo pieces)...you place the biomass to be turned into biochar in an inner bin, place that in the larger barrel, and fill around and over the top of that with more wood. With the lid on this inner bin, you will create an oven for the biomass inside that gets little oxygen. Once complete you should be left with a mat black dull biomass. If not quite done it may still exhibit the colouration of combustible material and the sheen of volatile oils. Once the burn is complete, you crush up the biomass and then sieve it through finer gradations until you have a fine powder. Keep crushing and sieving until it is all fine grounds. This makes an excellent soil amendment because the fine carbon structure provides habitat for untold trillions of micro-organisms beneficial to the life of your soil. We will be using this in our nursery potting mix for our vegetable and tree seedlings, but you could just as well add it to compost or throw it over your garden bed. Building a rich soil is the foundation for growing healthy and nutritious food. Give it your utmost attention and you will be rewarded with lush healthy growth, great tasting mineral rich food, and vital health." Thanks @zaytunafarm for this incredible walk-through!
