Early morning harvest ready for pickup by the awesome delivery guy from the local community breakfast charity (aka my dad!). They usually serve breakfast burgers, frittata and salad and any left over produce gets put in a communal fridge for other food bank charities to use during the week. About a year ago I thought about sticking an extra garden bed in to grow produce especially to give away. @birdiesgardenproducts and @richgrogarden contacted me to offer to help get the bed up and running #legends and baskets like this are the result. I don't give every week, but that's definitely my goal (so long as the delivery guy doesn't mind a quick hug and chat in the driveway each week). ✨🍃✌🏻❤️ #foodinsecurity #foodwaste #donate #charities #hunger #pleasegive #doseofreality #foodbank #donate #foodnotlawns #growtoeat #garden #giftsfromthegarden #microgardening #paddocktoplate #backyardfarmer #growwhatyoueatbackyardgardening #allotment #growyourownfood #seedsnow #homegarden #growsomethinggreen #lobotany #permaculture #organicgardening #moestuin
Harvest time! Eggplants ‘Solanum melonera’ are an easy-to-grow vegetable that look just as ornamental as any flowering plant. Their beauty and colour really enhance any garden. Personally, I prefer these Lebanese purple ones as they look SO pretty and are fast growing – great for impatient gardeners like me! The flowers attract pollinators and then form fruits. Most varieties take 70-90 days to mature. I grow a few different varieties including ‘Little Fingers’, ‘Early Long Purple’ and ‘Black Beauty’ (a large egg-shaped variety that takes longer to fatten up). Eggplant is a member of the nightshade family of vegetables, which also includes tomatoes, capsicums/peppers, chillis and potatoes. I grow in both pots and garden beds. Plants may need staking and picking regularly encourages more fruit. I’m lucky to be able to grow eggplant as a perennial in our warm climate so it’s great value year after year. Research shows eggplant contains a phytonutrient in the skin called ‘nasunin’ which is a powerful antioxidant and free radical scavenger that helps protect cell membranes from damage. How do you know when to pick your eggplant? There’s a simple test you can do to see how ripe it is. Gently press your thumb against the skin. If it springs back, the eggplant is ripe. If you see an indentation, let it keep growing. Simple hey? What are your favourite ways to cook eggplant?
Frost warning tonight so I did the last harvest of the microgarden. Long growing season ends Oct 16th. #microgardening #microgarden

I like to wash my plants during harvest season. You will be surprised what a difference it makes,whn you smoke it.. First, i pull as much fan leaves off as possible, then i wash the plant for about 30 seconds to a minute, shake as much excess water as possible. I have an 8'X12' area i can hang the plants, with a 50pint dehumidifier that i run for 2 to 3 hours on the lowest setting. Just enough to dry the excess water from plant, so no mold sets in. Now you can proceed with the usual dry curing process. 🌊🍀✂🔥💨😋😁 #farmtoflame #igrowsmallplants #microgardening #outdoorgardening #BackYardBoogies #happygrowing #HappyHarvest #croptober #BagSeedsOnly #BagSeedBlessed #BagSeedBanditBlit #BagSeedExtracts #BagSeedFarms #420 #710 #prop215 #prop64 #cannabiscommunity #staylifted #staymedicated #staylit 👍🙏✌
Picking a brand name and getting it #trademarked can be a #prickly endeavour... Lucky for us, we have a #relaxing #WearDeck on our quiet back #patio to #meditate on while doing some #microgardening 🌵 Now we're ready to #getdown to #business again. Thank you all for your patience and support! 🙏
Basil is not only delicious, but it's also an excellent home pharmacy medicinal herb to grow. It contains compounds with anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antioxidant, antimicrobial properties as well as chemo-preventive and radio-protective effects. Phew! Pretty impressive hey? That's not all ... Fresh basil contains Vitamins A, C and K and many phytonutrients essential for health. Like all herbs, basil contains digestive enzymes. Try raising seeds and growing as microgreens if you've only got a tiny space. Dig into my article in the Bio for my free Easy Guide to Growing Basil.
This hasn’t been the easiest process. I know i could’ve done things better to help them along and I could’ve prevented a lot of plant deaths but it’s just not easy doing it in pots. BUT...my slow and easy veggies have FINALLY started to produce! Of course, right when they need to come in the house ahead of frost but I’m so happy! #veggies #pottedplants #pottedgarden #microgardening #sweetpeppers #jalepenos #onlythestrongsurvive #frost

I make my own pizza dough with organic GF flour, salt, organic olive oil, water, garlic and fresh herbs. I spread with homemade tomato sauce (with onion, garlic, oregano, basil, parsley and thyme). Even before topping, the flavour is delicious! Perfect as an accompaniment for soups or snacks. Then smear some basil pesto (I freeze in ice cubes for use throughout the year) and top with seasonal vegetables. Lebanese eggplants are big enough to harvest now in my container garden. You don’t have to cook all the ingredients though. I love the pop of flavour of some fresh chopped capsicum, tomato and of course basil on top. What are YOUR favourite pizza toppings? Let’s share some inspiring combinations!
It's October and the microgarden is still producing sweet million cherry tomatoes. And eggplant. #sweetmilliontomatoes #microgardening #microgarden
