Little update on my purple bell peppers! The plants have completely take. Off and now have about on each with more blooming everyday! They still have a bit more ripening to do , and will turn a much darker purple when ready (almost a black like purple!) I adore these colors💜💜💜 .

Third time’s a charm! The first two attempts of germination of these yellow watermelon seeds seemed promising but didn’t make it. This round I’m seeing some true leaves (the tiny more jagged ones), which I’m holding as a good sign. I’m going to let these sit in the greenhouse another week or so to give them the best chance. @shesgoodcompany sent me these seeds she saved from her garden last year so I’m particularly attached to seeing these through to fruiting so I can send seeds back! Fingers crossed! #playingwithmud .

Has anyone ever tried a lemon cucumber? I am curious to know what the flavor is like. 
I had never heard of a lemon cucumber until I went to @loweshomeimprovement to buy seeds. In the spring they usually have really good sales, so I picked up a bunch of organic @ferrymorseseed seed packets and made my way to the outdoor garden area. I wanted to start all of my garden from seed, but I could not refuse their 4 for $10. I bought several herbs, strawberries, a couple of tomato and pepper plants, and of course the lemon cucumbers. 
I planted all 6 from the little cup into my garden. Guess I should have given them a little more space because they are spilling over the panel and onto my sunflowers. I had to steer them away from my tomato plants as they were branching out, but I think it will be manageable. 😂 If it comes down to it I will build a trellis. @YouTube had some really good videos for DIY trellises. 👌

I am so thrilled to see this little guy growing. This is the first one and it is flowering like crazy. Still trying to figure out which ones are female flowers and which ones are male, but just to see something is happening is a great feeling. 
This is the first year of a full size garden for me and seeing all this growth... honestly, worth every drop of sweat.

Bougainvillea⠀
⠀
I find these everywhere: Along a fence, across a wall, or draping down from a wooden awning. And in so many colors too like red, purple, pink, and orange. They’re a beautiful piece to any home or garden to brighten things up. ⠀

Big pepper, little pepper, yellow pepper and green pepper! There are so many varieties, which one is your favorite?
#repost from @growing.in.the.garden
...
Here’s some information about the peppers in the picture:⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣
• Sweet Mini - colors range from green, red, yellow, orange & purple, depending on the variety.⁣⁣⁣
˙
• Jalapeño - A pepper’s heat is often compared with the heat of a jalapeño – “it’s hotter than a jalapeño” or “it’s not as hot as a jalapeño”. When jalapeños are left to ripen to red on the vine, the flavor is less hot and sweeter than the green ones.⁣⁣⁣
˙
• Bell - As the bell pepper ripens from green to red, then yellow, and finally orange, the sweetness and flavor increases.⁣⁣⁣
˙
• Bhut Jolokia - former Record Holder for “World’s Hottest Pepper”. Mine weren’t ripe enough to take a picture of, so thanks to @sprouts I could include them in this picture. ⁣⁣⁣
˙
• Thai - There are many different types of Thai chili peppers, and they range from hot to very hot. ⁣⁣⁣
˙
• Poblano - Mild with just a bit of heat and earthy tasting. They are often roasted and peeled. Dried poblano peppers are called ancho chilis.⁣⁣⁣
˙
• Jaloro - A hybrid of the jalapeño, turns red if left on the vine longer. ⁣⁣⁣
˙
• Anaheim - Milder than a jalapeño - mild flavor and heat. Favorite for roasting and chile rellenos.⁣⁣⁣
˙
• Serrano - Fresh flavor but hotter than a jalapeño. One of the easiest peppers to grow. ⁣⁣⁣
˙
• Fresno - When green, a Fresno pepper looks and tastes similar to a jalapeño. As the pepper matures, it turns red & develops a smokier & fruitier taste that is slightly hotter than a jalapeño.⁣⁣⁣
˙
• Habanero - Good mix of heat & flavor. Very hot plus a little citrus flavor.

Balance... They affected my onion crop this year but they provide SO much more than they took ❤ 
Humanly raised & loved, these 4 beautiful hens provide my family of 4 with all the fresh eggs we need. Free range eggs are a wonderful source of protein and vitamins.

You don't have to live on a farm. We share our suburban backyard with these lovely ladies. They provide entertainment & nutrition to our lives 🌞

This is why I believe the green caterpillar on the tomato was a cabbage looper. I spotted this moth in the greenhouse in May and sure enough it is a cabbage looper moth which I didn’t realize at the time.

I’itoi onion harvest. I’itoi onions are a multiplier onion. This easy-to-grow onion rarely (if ever) sends up flower stalks and bolts. I’itoi onions tolerate and even thrive in the Sonoran Desert’s difficult growing conditions. One bulb becomes 8 or 10 bulbs, which in turn become more bulbs. You will be amazed at how quickly these bulbs multiply. Here are few tips for harvesting I’itoi onions:⁣
• When the greens die down, the bulbs are ready to harvest and divide. ⁣
• Pull up clumps of onions and allow to cure in a shady dry location for several days. ⁣
• Remove dried up shoots and divide onions. ⁣
• Store in a cool dry location.⁣
• Pinch yourself when you realize that your few planted bulbs multiplied many, many times! ⁣
• Each time you harvest I’itoi onions, save some to plant and share some with others. Most of these are headed to the seed library at ⁣@mesalibrary
• Teach others how to grow I’itoi onions, and share what you’ve learned!

I took a little stroll through the garden this morning. I’m happy to see that my peppers appear to be recovering a bit. It’s been a tough year for them, and I’m still concerned their growth will be stunted a bit, but I’m happy to see them growing again. Meanwhile, the onion patch and blueberry bushes are doing much better than I anticipated. This will be an interesting harvest, for sure.

In  CT the only things I *needed* to start indoors were tomatoes and peppers. I started other things, too, just because, but it wasn't really necessary. Different approach here with many things needing to be started indoors or you just won't have a solid enough start to reach maturity before frost. Not having grow lights or a greenhouse, I did what I've always done which is utilize every south facing window I could find. As is the case with this inferior method, many things grew leggy before it was time to move them outside (peppers and tomatoes are the exception, they never grow leggy for me). A little leggy I can deal with, but some plants were showing 12" stems before they even set true leaves. Not ideal. So I restarted some things as an experiment. Winter squash, calendula, cucumbers, cabbage, basil... only this time, it was the second week in May (late!), so I let the covered seed trays stay outside, in full sun, the entire time, acting like mini-greenhouses. Wicked fast germination and growth rate to reach true leaves. And no legs! The experiment worked. As challenging as this planting season has been for many of us, I've tried to take it in stride and use all the waiting-time to experiment and learn new methods for a new region. So next year, if I do not have a greenhouse yet, I'll still stick with starting tomatoes, peppers, herbs, and maybe a few other things indoors, but most plants I'll just give a later-than-you'd-think-possible jumpstart in covered seed trays, outside in the consistently-overhead springtime sun. ☀️

Had this in my story but too awesome not to put on the wall. This is the same squash one day apart! This baby is massive. Do I need to support it? It seems to be holding very well on its own. I wonder how big she will get! #giantvegetables #spagettisquash #homegrown #backyardgarden #orangecounty #lowcarb #healthy #myfarm #myhappyplace

Monday morning garden update from my little backyard circle plot. 🌸🌿✨ We are slowly catching up. No shortage of greenery. Even though I've been feeling lousy, at least this place doesn't reflect that. How does your garden grow?🌱#gardenmagic #grateful #myzenplace #backyardgarden .

🌱💃🏾#watermelon! Need a long growing season, some varieties as much as 80 days. They need a warm ground for seeds to germinate. Soil should be 70 degrees F or warmer at planting time. It can be difficult to grow up here in zone 6b, I've had success by starting my seeds indoors, and not expecting a huge crop. I usually get about 2 per plant and that's fine. I grow varieties that I can't find locally. These are an Orange glo and a yellow moon and stars.
.
Make sure the watermelon is well watered and mulching is a must. Watermelon are a vine and can take up a huge amount of space. This 3x8 box is not nearly enough room for 2 plants, but I plan to prune heavily! I also feed with compost tea, foliar spray and molasses, and I also top dress mid season with a fruit and vegetable fertilizer. Do you have any tips to share? .

Finally got the mesh fencing up around the garden. Just in time because mama deer and her fawn came by last night and were surprised to find they couldn’t get inside #homegarden #chillingintheculdesac

We keep our Poppy outside on the deck in her hutch in summertime.  It's been such a rainy wet soggy start to summer that poor Pops hasn't had much time in her A frame in the grass.  Our backyard is completely soaked this summer.  All. The. Time.  Like flooded.  It's hard to keep the grass cut bc the mower cant get through it.  This pic is from one day last week she was in the grass and given some garden goodies. I hope it dries out soon so she can stretch out in the grass and not get muddy.  Just read a report that many of the Illinois farmers decided to not plant bc,  well, they can't.  Total loss this year.  To be a farmer, you really have to trust in Jesus bc you are so dependent on him... for the sun, for the rain,  for no hail, for no disease, for no early frost, for no injury, for helping hands, and to do it all again over and over... for so many things out of our control.  Total surrender.  If we could all live by this example of grace. #rabbits #backyardrabbits #backyardchickens #backyardhomesteaders #backyardfarmher #farmher #backyardgarden #catholic #grace #christian @camoandfeathers @the_red_barn_farm @dewaynesmithfarms

Swiss Chard-ing Through 
Monday ...
.
Father’s Day was Mr. WN’S day to be “king for a day!” Hopefully the rest of the father’s in insta-world enjoyed the royal treatment?.
.
After yesterday’s rain our Swiss Chard ‘Bright Lights’ is growing in leaps and bounds.  Compared to last years in ground crop it’s doing remarkably better in the galvanized washtub thus far.
.
FULL SUN 
Matures:  In 60 days
Care:  Best in fertile, well- drained soil kept evenly moist.
Stems are produced in a rainbow of colors!
.
The second photo was taken only a couple days prior to this mornings rain covered photo.
.
A wave from the mobile greenhouse ...

So I went to the farmer's markets the other day searching for some white vegetables to make this amazing white winter soup (recipe on website). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Accidentally picked up a white exterior sweet potato, only to discover the colourful inside.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Needless to say my soup was purple. Kids loved it!

I don’t normally do food posts because, frankly, I’m the worst cook (we can’t all be good at everything guys 😂 Once I failed at making a packet mix cake twice. Don’t ask how because I seriously don’t know 🤷🏻‍♀️). Since I began growing our own food though, I’m getting better and this year I’ve been half determined to really improve my skills. So I now present to you.......homemade mini Damper and homemade Rosella jam! Full disclosure: I wasn’t actually going for mini sized Damper but it happened and I’m claiming it 😂 If you’ve never tried Rosella Jam, I would highly recommend growing them (so easy) and making some because it’s pretty incredible - definitely my favourite jam ever. 🌿

The first flower...
This is on our courgette 'eclipse' and could possibly be one of only a few we get this year. I planted out four of each of the courgettes I sowed, eclipse and zucchini. Thtee of each have been totally eaten by slugs and snails and the one remaining zucchini looks like it's hanging in there but it might all be in vain, there isn't much left. 😢 The trials and tribulations of gardening! We will definitely treasure any harvests we do get though.
The slugs have also demolished our Kohl Rabi so the remnants have been pulled up this morning and rainbow carrots sown in their place. 🥕 Carrots are usually the crop that I struggle with but they are doing well this year, it's everything else I'm having trouble with!

"We keep all of our little friends in one window, not just because they have the same care needs (which is a good idea) but mostly so that the light that comes through this window can reach further into the hallway. Layering the height of you greenery allows you to have more green deeper into the home, not just in window sills."

From @homegrown.garden -  Hurrah! 🙌🏻 The bean support on my shared plot has been weeded, strung and the beans directly down.. 🌱
.
It was such a mammoth job but I’ve got there and now I’m celebrating the small victory. 🎉
.
The frame is super long which is why I haven’t pre-grown the beans. Instead I soaked them in water to help them germinate, made a drill (a line dug out in the soil) and sprinkled them in! Im positive that I’ve over sown them 🙈 but I’m so excited to watch them grow up the awesome structure on Zorun’s plot! I also have some peas growing behind me which are separate to the others as they will reach 2m tall! 🌿
.
I also hope to grow some Syrian cucumbers on the opposite side where you can see, if you look closely I ran out of garden string! 🧶

Chilli plant when I first planted it outside and then a few weeks later after some pruning(pic 2). Nipping the top and gently pulling off some of the big leaves once it is 30cm tall will leave room for new branches to form and you will end up with a bushier plant instead of it just growing tall and skinny. And more branches equals more fruit (hopefully 😉)
