More harvest from the plot down the street. So many potatoes, tomatoes and squash I have to share them with friends and family. @hotvedterik Thanks Eric! I will continue to make sure as much of the food is used and eaten as I can! #backyardabundance #gardeningwithgwinup #usingthespace #thespacesbetween #highdesertgardening #centraloregongardening #bendorgardening #backyardharvest #harvest #squash #tomato #tomatoes #potatoes #fresh #food #doyourpart

Nooooooo! Not again! I had broccoli, spinach, radishes, carrots, bok choi, romaine lettuce, loose leaf lettuce, peas, arugula, kolabri and kale all coming along nicely until the mystery critter returned to dig them all up and eat them. 😫😫😫 I'm going to have to figure out some kind of barrier to keep animals out. Not sure I have enough time before the temperature starts dropping to start over, but I'm going to give it a go since the forecast is still showing weather in the 80s. #😢 #😫 #gardeningwoes #highdesertgardening #growyourown #gardenpests #endofsummer #santafegarden #vegetablegarden #WHYYYYY #somethingiseatingmyplants #whycantyoueattheweedsinstead #santafe #newmexico #gardenlife

Not as pretty as a peach, but this peach pie didn’t fall far from the tree. #homegrown#highdesertgardening

Dont tell me it's too soon, dont go breakin my heart!

Back from the brink of death! We found a sad looking wormwood, Artemisia absinthium, at a local nursery. After a few doses of worm cast tea and daily babying we have new growth! He is enjoying his new home along side the manuka tea tree and black elderberries. I cant wait to see them grow up together, their contrasting colors will be so pleasing.

I'm a fan of the leaves on our hackberry tree. Large, deep green with a contradicting texture. How can something be soft and rough at the same time? Much like a cats tongue.
It is naturalized the world over and is known by many names, including sugarberry, beaverwood, and nettletree. It is part of the hemp family (cannabaceae) and the bark has been used by the native people, throughout the Americas, medicinally for women's reproductive wellness, sore throats, and even some STDs.
The thin skinned berries are cumbersome to eat due to the large seed, but that doesnt stop gatherers from flavoring syrups and jellies or being crushed and eaten whole, as a well rounded trail snack. Full of fat, protein, carbs, and vitamins, hackberries also make an excellent animal feed, specifically poultry.
The berries are available all winter long and are a welcome sight to wildlife when food is scarce. They tend to grow on the upper branches so harvesting can be a pain. You can climb a sturdy ladder to gather or use a long stick to shake the berries loose and gather from the ground.
This semi-drought tolerant shade tree needs very little to be happy. In our climate, it spreads readily in areas with access to water. The first year I watered daily, now one good soak a week is all that is needed. Be sure to choose a spot with plenty of stretching space as they can get 30ft tall!

More harvest! The honey crisp apples came from a tree up the street that no one was eating. The red potatoes and yellow carrots came from @hotvedterik and his allotment up the street. Will try to harvest and share as much as I can Eric! The potatoes look amazing and are huge just like the carrots. The rest of the produce came out of my garden. The usual tomatoes, peppers, squash, cucumbers and such. Yum! #gardeningwithgwinup #scrumpin #communityfood #neighborhoodproduce #neighborhood #fresh #freshfood #backyardabundance #highdesertgardening #centraloregongardening #peppers #tomatoes #potatoes #cucumbers #squash

This Navajo Cushaw Squash just keeps growing and growing. I let them vine out, it's fun to watch them crawl around. This vine is like 25 ft or more. #cushawsquash #vining #highdesertgardening #dinébikéyah

Blue tomatoes. These when mature have a tint of red come into them and turn almost purple. #bluetomato #bluetomatoes #allnatural #fromseedstothese #highdesertgardening #dinébikéyah
