A new family welcomes its swimming farming friend. 🐠🌱😍 Water Garden is a mini aquaponics ecosystem where fish fertilises the plants and the plants, in turn, clean the water.💧
Fewer water changes and more time for family fun! 🌱😜 #linkinbio
Early in my pregnancy, my doctor told me to limit sugar because “it makes big babies”. I remember nodding my head earnestly, and then getting into my car and downing a handful (or two) of swedish fish because they were the only thing that eased the nausea. Not proud of it, but also you gotta do what you gotta do. Lately, fresh fruit is making a comeback in my diet and I’m reveling in how delicious it is. Growing up, my mom always called it “God’s candy” and after this bowl of blackberries...I wholeheartedly agree. #ourlittlewoodskitchen#growingbabywoods#instagarden#midwestliving#homesteadersofinstagram#littleaccountlove
Carrots have been one of the highlights of the Winter season for me. It’s been my first wildly successful season with them after having years of a few hits and a few misses but I think we’ve cracked the code! 🙌🏼🌿
And our Brighton Project is full steam ahead. Top Terrace Patio is laid and a lovely hand cut tapered edge. And cables ran in for the lights to go in the bed where the tree is and into the back wall, and today started and nearly finished the bottom patio 3/4 completed but tomorrow got some fiddley bits to do before completing the main patio. • • • •
What do you guys think of the Window Boxes this year? let us know in the comments below! Feel free to tag a friend that may like this window box!
I know that I couldn’t top last year’s, but this year’s looks like it is even bigger!
The right side got a little heavier than the left with the wave petunia, due to an early watering mishap. But other than that, they are looking awesome! They are super easy maintenance too! I had to use a ladder to clean off the canna flowers on top. That’s something that I have never had to do before. They get watered every third day. I water them all the way through, until the water is dripping through the drainage holes on the bottom. Every third time that I water them, I water them with water soluble fertilizer. I use Jack’s bloom booster.
A big deep windowboxes the way to go. It makes watering maintenance so much easier, and helps promote bigger plants and bigger results throughout the season!
this box here is 7 feet long by 12 inches deep by 12 inches wide. These were built with cedar. We are on our fifth year, and next year we will need to build new ones.
A harvest of over 50 tomatoes. This harvest includes the first Roma tomatoes and green beans of the season. Going to make some pizza sauce from the Roma tomatoes and give the other varieties away. This is turning out to be a great season for tomatoes. As we planned on watering the garden yesterday but then a short rain storm came through. It made us realize it has rained a day or two every week this summer. We have only had to water the garden ourselves just a handful of times. This is probably why the tomatoes are doing so well.
Who else LOVES pomegranate? These beauties are heat-loving and drought tolerant, making a great addition to your garden. Yum! 😋
PS. Peep that gorgeous mason bee hotel in the background! #saveourpollinators #repost from @growing.in.the.garden

I’m loving having Nasturtiums back in my garden. The colours in these ‘Gleam Salmon’ are so beautiful and they grow so wild. This one is climbing up a stake at the moment whilst also attempting to take over its entire raised bed. If you don’t grow Nasturtiums they are a great edition to the garden - good for pest control, bees love them, they are beautiful and the whole plant is edible 🌿
