I’ve decided to leave the apiary I set up on farmland on the Warwickshire border and bring the hives over to the village apiary a stone’s throw from where I live. These dried flowers are pretty much the forage that produces the golden summer honey I love. The plants are mostly perennial: lavender, allium, oregano, achillea veronica, so you get the same flavour each year. And it pours like syrup, retains all its health boosting properties and actually tastes of herbs and flowers. I have less honey this year for a number of reasons including my hive management but I’m happy to have tried out a few new things like top bars, never feeding with sugar nor using queen excluders which are practices I’ll take forwards as I work towards the highest ethical standards and a product that’s as natural as possible. We need more people to keep bees and promote the advantages of a smaller number of hives and less intervention. So today I’ll be combining the hives left on the old site ready to move the colony in September. I’m going early before we get to 30 degrees. Enjoy this high summer’s day too.

If you're happy and you know it clamp your vines. A vertical gardening hack! Instead of having to constantly tie vines to trellises, a selection of Dollar Store clips do the trick! Buy clips that are loose enough to not pinch the vines and clip them to the trellis. In a day or two the tendrils will securely attach the vine to the trellis. Then you can remove that clip and use it on another shoot needing guidance. Quick and easy!

Buckets-of-death!!!! 👹👹👹🔪🔪🔪🔪🔪🔪🐀🐀🐀🐀🐀🐀 Last night I had one bucket out and caught 3 HUGE rats. It’s now become a war.. as my tomato plants dwindle I’m protecting em as much as I can. Tonight I set up 5 buckets all over my yard. Mostly trying to protect my 5 Brandywine tomatoes that are covered in huge 🍅, the remainder of my cherry tomatoes, and my one blackberry plant that has like 10 berries on it. I swear I’m gonna murder every rat that’s ever lived in this neighborhood, and will ever live in this neighborhood. GOOD RIDDANCE!!!!!🖕🏻🤖

I live near the coast and around this time every summer my zucchini is looking pretty sad and full of powdery mildew. I just thought this is what happens because of the marine layer that comes in and keeps everything wet so I pull it and replace it with some other vegetable that can tolerate this climate. I stumbled upon a YouTube video by @migardener that talks about how beneficial it is to prune your zucchini leaves. By doing this you get rid of the powdery mildew and your plants can last much much longer. You essentially need to get rid of all leaves below the zucchini on your plant. As you can see in my photos, what I’m left with is a skinny skeletal spine and a healthy plant that will keep on producing zucchini well into the summer. This was my second pruning. It’s pretty drastic, but I can assure you, your plant will become lush and full once again. #zucchini #pruning #dontbescaredtoprune #gardensnack #gardentotablefeast #backyardgardener #backyardfarmer #instagardener #spring #kitchentable #growyourownfood #farmtotable #urbangardener #urbanhomestead #goathill #organic #vegetables #ediblegarden #permaculture #gardeningsoutherncalifornia #zone10a #zone10b #socalgarden #socalgardener #socalgardening #ocgardener #therealoc #ediblelandscape

Mid-July is peak production in the garden. All of this, plus more cucumbers, multiple baskets and stock pots of tomatoes, potatoes, carrots, and beets, were harvested over the course of the past week. Each day is a flurry of daily chores, homeschool lessons, outside play, errands, activities, and cooking our meals from scratch, in large part from our own farm. Then, just when I’m ready to sit down and rest a while, I remember all that marvelous produce that needs saving for winter. So from dinner until bedtime, I chop, freeze, jam, and can. And it’s more than a bit bewildering to compare the price of store-bought tomato sauce to the cumulative price of my homemade sauce. But there is at least one important lessons from this (extremely wide) cost gap: industrial food is incomprehensibly cheap. How a jar of tomato sauce can be grown, processed, packaged, globalized, and retailed with special sale prices to the consumer for such a low price doesn’t make sense- even with the “economies of scale” argument. This isn’t a new discovery for me, but one that I realize more keenly and personally as we produce more and more of our own food. And, contrary to what you might think, the knowledge of this makes me want to produce even more of our own food, and to know the local (when possible) farmers who supply us with what we cannot and do not grow. Call me crazy.... call me an idealist... but don’t call me while I’m canning tomatoes.
