Yesssss!!!! The cherries are back in season......
It is hard to beat sweet, plump and juicy cherries picked from you very own trees, now it really feels like summer is here.

FREE Bitter Melon Seedlings if you are brave enough to try them out!!! Pick up only!!! DM me for details. WHERE do I live did you say??? Somewhere in Melbourne AUSTRALIA! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜
.
You are gonna NEED a TRELLIS for sure! You cannot (should not) let these crawl on the ground, as the fruit will bruise.
.
Whoever can pick it up FIRST, gets it!!! (NOT whoever messages me first)

And I'm back! Had such a fun day taking over @thelittlefoodgarden! Thanks so much for having me Farmer Govey - I just love what you do and your passion to see people grow their own! Go and check out his page if you haven't already! ๐ŸŒฟ This was this afternoons harvest. These kind of harvest remind me of why I love Summer so much - Tomatoes, Cucumbers, Beans, Eggplants, Peppers, Jalapeรฑos and Parsley ๐ŸŒฟ

HOMEMADE EARWIG LURE TRAP
.
A container of OLIVE OIL will attract earwigs. Death is decisive in approximately 10 seconds
.
Earwigs are nocturnal pests who love damp, wet, cool and moist living conditions and hiding places around those conditions.
.
They are omnivorous creatures however they donโ€™t only pry on garden debris and decaying material but they can dessimate healthy ornamental plants, vegetables and fruit
.
Place oil traps around tree trunks and around areas where they love to hide in damp areas. This includes around rocks, mulch, crevices, cracks, leaves and any other hiding place you can think of
.
These traps are extremely useful because earwigs release a special type of pheromone that attracts earwigs to come together and this is one of the reasons on why you will often find them hiding in large clusters together or within a close proximity of each other
.
Often homemade traps like these may not be enough for larger infestations in which case sprays like pyrethrum are effective or the laying of diatomaceous earth in localised areas where they seem to hide and congregate
.
The other problem with earwigs is that they do not have predatory insects that can readily attack them and in the right conditions they can multiply very quickly and wreak havoc. In very severe cases where the populations have grown out of control, you may need the help of a professional pest controller and submit yourself to the use of a chemical solution

My potted blueberry bush is doing so well this year! Very grateful for the juicy fruit it has given me ๐Ÿ˜Š

I have another two bushes in the ground it is their first summer in my garden and they are already producing fruit but they are very tart. Iโ€™m sure in a few years theyโ€™ll be just as sweet as my potted blube ๐Ÿ’š

Parasite in fig plants. Benalu dipohon tin. So tell me, ini masih berkhasiat juga nggak. Likewise kalo sesamanya kayak benalu kelor, benalu mangga, benalu teh dan benalu2 lainnya kan dicariin sama orang sakit (biasanya kanker) buat dijadikan remedy tea. It's dried up nicely now. Jadi inget almarhum tante yg sakit kanker paru dan selalu minta dibawakan benalu kelor.. #figs #fig #ficuscarica #pohontin #buahtin #pohonara #growsomethinggreen #growyourown #growyourownfruit #growyourownfood #urbangardenersrepublic #urbangardening #urbangardener #urbangarden #gardener #gardening #happygardening #gardeningtips #greenthumb #berkebun #bertanam #thehappygardeninglife #tanamanbuah #lovegardening #backyardgarden #containergarden

17/10/17 Balsams, finger eggplants and japanese cucumbers. Just some of the plants growing in @moksaubud's permaculture garden. Irrigation channels in from a stream that brings water from a natural water source, and bamboo features heavily in structures, including a small nursery that uses halved bamboo stems as seeding trays. Mulch is thick and heavy to keep soil and the ecosystem under away from the harsh tropical sun, and coconuts form the boundary of raised beds. Amazing that this entire garden is managed by only a handful of committed individuals.

Let's talk about vertical gardens... what an amazing idea! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜
A serious space saver, it keeps your produce off the ground, away from naughty insects ๐Ÿœ๐Ÿ•ท๐Ÿž๐ŸŒ and from rot.. plus, they just look so rad! Adding a bit of a #vertical element to your garden ๐Ÿ…๐Ÿˆ๐Ÿฅ• all you need are some decent sized branches and some twine ๐Ÿ‘ In October we cut all the lower branches off the tree in our yard & have kept them all for #gardenprojects .. Every time my fiance tries to throw them away I snarl at him ๐Ÿ•
We now have two teepees at the back, one for #tomatoes ๐Ÿ… & one for #squash & something yet unidentified.. Plus another tomato teepee in the front ๐Ÿ˜

Oil Spotlight / I finally got Copaiba in the other day(free with my loyalty points from doterra)! I couldn't wait to put this oil to the test. Its scent is oddly nostalgic to me - reminds me of camping!
Anyways, we have all been a little under the weather so I made an immunity blend (DM me for the recipe), and I added 10 drops of Copaiba. โœจ Because it's a magnifier oil - blending Copaiba with other oils boosts their benefits. Yes, please! ๐Ÿ™ŒI had the worst headache all day, and as soon as I got home I made a steam bath with Lavender & Copaiba. After a ten minute soak and a couple deep breaths, I found some relief!
Copaiba also has strong anti-inflammatory benefits. โœจIt contains large amounts of beta-caryophyllene which reacts with the receptors in your body, eventually encouraging the release of beta-endorphins. Basically, it soothes all those anxious feelings. Who wants that? ๐Ÿ™‹ Even my hubby let me rub it on his feet! He will be oily in no time! ๐Ÿ˜‚#hawriverhomestead #hawriveressentials

This mornings harvest: the first lot of apricots, zucchini bush baby and yellow pygmy tomatoes. Also mini cauliflower, radish mix, green rokoto chillies, very mature spring onion, mini savoy, & broccoli.
We have partially covered the apricot tree. The birds have to decided to leave some of the uncovered apricots intact whilst pecking at others through the net - go figure... I am a little unsure about this dwarf apricot tree- I donโ€™t find that it holds the heavy fruit well on the branches -they constantly look like they are going to snap (& indeed one of the branches did snap last year). Does anyone find that with their dwarf?
Little dance for another lot of gooseberries ๐Ÿ’ƒ. I have pretty much picked the lot now. The fruit on the two thornless bushes is considerably smaller than the fruit on the thorned bush I first harvested from. I canโ€™t remember the varieties- one is Captivator-not sure if the size difference is due to position or variety?? I must say that picking from the thornless variety considerably more pleasan- than picking from the thorned one - I was able to just run my hand along the underside of the branches and pick them in one go rather than picking one by one trying to avoid the huge thorns. I should have enough fruit to make a small jar of Nigel Slatersโ€™ โ€˜Sweet Pickled Gooseberriesโ€™ & a small jar of jam. The larger ones are destined for pork chops (I use them instead of apples). The first lot of tomatoes almost escaped my attention. I was greedy and planted the mini tomato bushes way too close together and also havenโ€™t pruned out the foliage so they were hidden below a sea of green. Pruning these will be a job for this afternoon.
โ€จVery happy to have another bunch of mini caulies. I am going to roast these whole.

Hopefully Iโ€™ll have some cucumbers soon!

Pretty purple ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œMonday harvest - can you name these veggies?

The kids and I went to Little Shop of Physics at CSU today and geeked out on the overload of science.
Aaaaalso I canโ€™t be left to navigate a college campus alone. 30 minutes, 3 times driving in circles and I gave in and called Robert (who has never been on campus either). Literally 10 seconds later he was telling me which way to turn, what I should be seeing on my right (a park) and voila we were to lot 310. I think he might have superpowers or heโ€™s using magic. Either way I donโ€™t have any of that and my kids are fully afraid to go anywhere new with me. #directionallychallenged #butphysicsiunderstand #doesthatcount

Turn on the volume to hear why it was time to pull this cucumber plant.

Kimchi, vegetarian style, in the making! So, 2 pounds of gathered Chinese cabbage leaves turn into about half a jar full after a good salt sweat - ridiculous! Fermentation used to be this big scary thing for me but now I realize it is really the easiest of all preserving techniques. It is forgiving and getting creative with ingredients and proportions is just fine. This version has Chinese cabbage, carrot, radish and scallion as the base - I had to fill the jar, after all. The spice comes from ground garden peppers, ginger, brown sugar and of course, salt. It will sit in a brine for 5 to 14 days. If you donโ€™t like the fermented taste so much, the whole business can just go in the fridge and be used right away. Again, the rules are loose with fermentation. Fun - right? ๐Ÿ’š #kimchi #fermentation #preserving #gardenfresh #savingtheseason

Soil: a Brita filter and an air filter all in one! -----------------------------------
As water moves through soil, charged ions like important plant nutrients (calcium, magnesium, etc) and heavy metals (lead, chromium, etc) get bound to oppositely charged organic matter and clays (smallest sized particle in soils). Not to mention, microbes are hard at work eating organic compounds, at times converting pollutants like PCBs and PAHs into less or non-toxic forms. Like the liver, it is possible to overtax the system, though in the last few decades we have learned many ways to team with microbes to 'bio' remediate contaminated sites.
------------------------------------
As for the air, soils support plants and microbes that pull CO2 right out of thin air, forming organic compounds that provide the building blocks of life! As microbes in the soil eat and metabolize these compounds, 1) they build up their bodies providing long-term storage of soil carbon, helping keep atmospheric carbon in check and 2) they breathe out CO2 and other greenhouse gases, returning a portion of what they ate back to the atmosphere. The goal is to create an environment that allows for maximum microbial efficiency so that your soil is more like your health nut friend than your lactose intolerant friend who still eats dairy ๐Ÿ˜œ. Soil health practices that keep microbes in mind have the potential to offset up to 15% of global fossil fuel emissions! โœ๏ธ:@soil.life ๐Ÿ“ท : @soil.life

There is nothing more rewarding than a raw dish with herbs fresh from the garden. Want to know the secret to the best guac? Garlic cloves and tiny chopped onions, a drop of lemon essential oil and pestle press, fresh cilantro....No seasoning, No salt. Let the pestle bring the flavors to life so no additives are needed!
