Alpine strawberry harvest from summer... πŸ“πŸ“πŸ“ #myberrywonderland #berrygarden #strawberry #urbangarden #organicgarden #andrekoeks #andrekoeksart

A lovely evening in Ireland as the sun goes down over my garden... these long midsummer days seem to go by so quickly, I just wish I could press pause & enjoy it a little longer. πŸ˜β›…πŸŒ„πŸ€πŸ€™ #midsummer #sunset #ireland #kildare #mygarden #mybackyard #andrekoeksart #andrekoeks #myberrywonderland

Meet your berry gardener... seeing as I don't have any pics of myself on my page, here's a throwback of me tending to my garden 2yrs ago today according to facebook. Seems I should've had a word with my barber... look at those bald patches. Have a lovely weekend my green fingered friends! πŸ˜‹πŸ‘ŒπŸ“πŸŒΈπŸ€ #throwback #gardening #gardener #urbangardener #greenfingers #myberrywonderland #berrygarden #organicgardener #magicgarden #ireland #kildare #mygarden #andrekoeksart #andrekoeks

And they're up... the last of the nets under these Irish skies. Looks like we're set for moody weather today. πŸŒ§πŸ€πŸ•ΈπŸ¦πŸ˜ #gardening #irishsummer #urbangarden #organicgarden #berrygarden #magicgarden #mygarden #mybackyard #fruitgarden #myberrywonderland #andrekoeks #andrekoeksart #ireland #kildare #happysunday

Pots for Africa... it's like playing musical chairs in my garden trying to get the last of the nets up inbetween the bouts of rain before the birds raid me... And boy do the birds raid me! Have a happy Saturday gardeners! πŸ¦πŸ‡πŸ“πŸŒ§πŸŒž #blueberries #strawberries #vacciniumcorymbosum #potculture #organicgarden #berrygarden #magicgarden #urbangarden #permaculture #rainyday #handpainted #growyourownmedicine #growyourown #growyourownfood #growyourownfruit #fruitgarden #laboroflove #kildare #ireland #myberrywonderland #andrekoeksart #andrekoeks #happysaturday #gardening #pots

It's been a beautiful day here apart from a few rainy spells, in fact the whole week has been pretty summery and the bees are a buzzing! These are the last of the blueberry bells to be pollinated & this little fella is on his way to work. πŸŒžπŸŒΈπŸπŸ€#blueberry #blooms #blossoms #flowers #vacciniumcorymbosum #bumblebee #bee #magicgarden #mygarden #mybackyard #myberrywonderland #berrygarden #fruitgarden #summer #organicgarden #urbangarden #gardening #happysunday #andrekoeksart #andrekoeks #pollinator #ireland #kildare #healthyliving #healthyfood #organic

Honeyberries are always the first to bloom in my garden letting me know that the season has begun... not the only reason they're one of my favorite plants. πŸ€πŸŒ„πŸŒΊπŸŒΏ #honeysuckle #honeyberry #loniceracaerulea #gardening #ireland #homegrown #growyourownmedicine #growyourownfood #magicgarden #organicgarden #blooms #fruitgarden #flowers #sunshine #berrygarden #myberrywonderland #mygarden #mybackyard #growyourownfruit #permaculture #spring #berries #andrekoeksart #andrekoeks

It's been stormy winds, rain & even a bit of snow here over the past couple of weeks but the sun finally came out to play this weekend. Here are some Honeysuckle blooms in the late afternoon sunshine. πŸŒΊπŸŒΏπŸŒ„πŸ€ #honeysuckle #honeyberry #loniceracaerulea #gardening #ireland #homegrown #growyourownmedicine #growyourownfood #magicgarden #organicgarden #blooms #fruitgarden #flowers #sunshine #berrygarden #myberrywonderland #mygarden #mybackyard #growyourownfruit #permaculture #spring #berries #andrekoeksart #andrekoeks

I said I wasn't going to start any new plants this year but really wanted to try a few tomatoes, after all... tomatoes are berries too. They're still young but gettin on nicely. πŸ˜‹πŸŒΏπŸŒžπŸ…πŸŒΈπŸ€ #solanumlycopersicum #tomato #tomatoes #flowers #happygarden #urbangarden #urbangardener #gardener #gardening #berrygarden #organicgarden #healthyliving #healthyfood #organicfood #organic #hydroponics #growyourownfood #growyourownfruit #magicgarden #ireland #kildare #fruitgarden #fruit #mygarden #mybackyard #myberrywonderland #andrekoeksart #andrekoeks

I've really had to take up all measures in my strawberry battle this year.... if it's not the weather it's the birds & if not the birds then it's those damn bugs & slugs. Not much I can do about the weather but I can beat the birds & the bugs! So far I'm winning.... πŸ’ͺπŸ˜‹πŸ¦πŸ›πŸŒπŸ‰πŸŒΈπŸ€#winning #fragaria #strawberry #strawberries #happygarden #urbangarden #urbangardener #gardener #gardening #berrygarden #organicgarden #healthyliving #healthyfood #organicfood #organic #permaculture #growyourownfood #growyourownfruit #magicgarden #ireland #kildare #fruitgarden #fruit #mygarden #mybackyard #myberrywonderland #andrekoeksart #andrekoeks

Im so glad I changed my varieties this season... I wasn't having much luck with the weather, they were damping off as they were ripening and I was only harvesting about 50%... but not this year and the yields seem to be much better too. Hallelujah! πŸ˜‹πŸŒΏπŸŒžπŸ‡πŸŒΈπŸ€ #harvest #strawberry #strawberries #harvesttime #happygarden #urbangarden #urbangardener #gardener #gardening #berrygarden #organicgarden #healthyliving #healthyfood #organicfood #organic #potculture #growyourownfood #growyourownfruit #magicgarden #ireland #kildare #fruitgarden #fruit #mygarden #mybackyard #myberrywonderland #andrekoeksart #andrekoeks

So this is happening every few days now, lots of raspberries for the picking along with the strawberries... here are 3 varieties together. Falls Gold in the back, the deep red ones are Autumn Bliss & a dwarf variety called Ruby Beauty. πŸ˜‹πŸŒΏπŸŒžπŸ‡πŸŒΈπŸ€ #yellowraspberries #rubusidaeus #raspberry #raspberries #happygarden #urbangarden #urbangardener #gardener #gardening #berrygarden #organicgarden #healthyliving #healthyfood #organicfood #organic #permaculture #growyourownfood #growyourownfruit #magicgarden #ireland #kildare #fruitgarden #fruit #mygarden #mybackyard #myberrywonderland #andrekoeksart #andrekoeks

Strange sticky little wonders... My Japanese Wineberries should be fruiting inside those pods right now. They look a little like those carnivorous plants but they don't bite. πŸ˜‹πŸŒΏπŸŒžπŸ‡πŸŒΈπŸ€ #strangefruit #japanesewineberries #japanesewineberry #rubusphoenicolasius #wineberry #happygarden #urbangarden #urbangardener #gardener #gardening #berrygarden #organicgarden #healthyliving #healthyfood #organicfood #organic #permaculture #growyourownfood #growyourownfruit #magicgarden #ireland #kildare #fruitgarden #fruit #mygarden #mybackyard #myberrywonderland #andrekoeksart #andrekoeks

Nowhere near ready... these little babies are swelling up nicely tho. If you're going to add some blueberries to your garden, try add a few different varieties, not only good for pollination but if you mix early, mid & late varieties you'll have blueberries from early summer into late autumn. πŸ˜‹πŸŒΏπŸŒžπŸ‡πŸŒΈπŸ€ #blueberry #blueberries #vacciniumcorymbosum #happygarden #urbangarden #urbangardener #gardener #gardening #berrygarden #organicgarden #healthyliving #healthyfood #organicfood #organic #permaculture #growyourownfood #growyourownfruit #magicgarden #ireland #kildare #fruitgarden #fruit #mygarden #mybackyard #myberrywonderland #andrekoeksart #andrekoeks

Well thats the lot for the currants today... however the other varieties are turning fast too, so a few more currant harvests expected over the next couple of weeks. πŸ˜‹πŸŒΏπŸ“πŸ‰πŸŒžπŸ‡πŸ’πŸŒΈπŸ€ #blackcurrants #whitecurrants #harvest #harvesttime #happygarden #urbangarden #urbangardener #gardener #gardening #berrygarden #organicgarden #healthyliving #healthyfood #organicfood #organic #permaculture #growyourownfood #growyourownfruit #magicgarden #ireland #kildare #fruitgarden #fruit #mygarden #mybackyard #myberrywonderland #andrekoeksart #andrekoeks

Big Ben black currants... surprisingly very sweet & meaty, not as tart a lot of black currants out there. I'd rate these quite highly on the flavour chart, you can eat em straight off the bush! πŸ˜‹πŸŒΏπŸ‰πŸ“πŸŒžπŸ‡πŸ’πŸŒΈπŸ€ #blackcurrants #blackcurrant #ribes #bigben #happygarden #urbangarden #urbangardener #gardener #gardening #berrygarden #organicgarden #healthyliving #healthyfood #organicfood #organic #permaculture #growyourownfood #growyourownfruit #magicgarden #ireland #kildare #fruitgarden #fruit #mygarden #mybackyard #myberrywonderland #andrekoeksart #andrekoeks

Black & white currants together... I always try to keep a few different varieties of the same plants beside each other, it's really good for pollination which also means good for yields. πŸ˜‹πŸŒΏπŸŒžπŸ‰πŸ“πŸ’πŸ‡πŸŒΈπŸ€ #blackcurrant #blackcurrants #ribes #whitecurrant #gardeningtips #happygarden #urbangarden #urbangardener #gardener #gardening #berrygarden #organicgarden #healthyliving #healthyfood #organicfood #organic #permaculture #growyourownfood #growyourownfruit #magicgarden #ireland #kildare #fruitgarden #fruit #mygarden #mybackyard #myberrywonderland #andrekoeksart #andrekoeks

These white currants are definitely ready to harvest... they look like fish eggs on a tree which may not sound too appealing but they're delicious, I promise! πŸ˜‹πŸŒΏπŸŒžπŸ’πŸ“πŸ‡πŸŒΈπŸ€ #whitepearl #whitecurrant #ribes #fisheggs #happygarden #urbangarden #urbangardener #gardener #gardening #berrygarden #organicgarden #healthyliving #healthyfood #organicfood #organic #permaculture #growyourownfood #growyourownfruit #magicgarden #ireland #kildare #fruitgarden #fruit #mygarden #mybackyard #myberrywonderland #andrekoeksart #andrekoeks

Big Ben Black Currants are ready to go... an easy kilo if not more & just a light brush past the bush and the aroma fills the air. Such a strong scent and a unique meaty but sweet flavour. πŸ˜‹πŸŒΏπŸŒžπŸ‡πŸŒΈπŸ€ #blackcurrant #bigben #ribes #ilovemygarden #happygarden #urbangarden #urbangardener #gardener #gardening #berrygarden #organicgarden #healthyliving #healthyfood #organicfood #organic #permaculture #growyourownfood #growyourownfruit #magicgarden #ireland #kildare #fruitgarden #fruit #mygarden #mybackyard #myberrywonderland #andrekoeksart #andrekoeks
