**It has a silver bark and shiny bright green leaves, grouped in threes. The tree produces masses of white trumpet-shaped, sweetly fragrant flowers from August to December. The flowers fade with age from white to cream and finally yellow. The ribbed, egg-shaped fruit ripens between January and April, with seeds embedded in pulp.  Antelope, baboons, elephants, and monkeys love the fruit.**

about a cup of cilantro 
1/4 tsp cumin
some cayenne 
dash of oregano 
salt and pepper to taste ( can also add later)
one lime squeezed

πŸ†Growing Eggplant From Seeds w/ Pictures
In a post a couple of weeks ago, I talked about growing our own food and why we are doing it. I decided to make a series of posts about growing vegetables from seeds and am starting with eggplants.

![Eggplant.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmNVuCFZBRmcGQbX6fURbc5z3sCaLWzZUwtcGaZWbYPuzR/Eggplant.jpg)

Eggplant have tons of of health benefits it a rich source of vitamin C, vitamin K,vitamin B6, thiamin, niacin, magnesium, phosphorous, copper, dietary fiber, folic acid, potassium, and manganese. It is also very easy to grow in a tropical country such as the Philippines. We have managed to maintain eggplants that produced fruits for an entire year, some are able to do longer than that through more thorough care of the pants. In this post I will attempt to give you a step by step instructions on how to grow eggplants.

Winter is coming. Ed's fall garden roundup with a surprise.
There's been some very cool night's lately with frost warnings. So far in the city we've evaded the frost, but my brother on the farm had some almost 2 weeks ago.

Well back to work I guess for this lazy gardener. I've picked all of the tomatoes and pulled the plants out already. 

![20170916_185750.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmT8B8jrkjqKfzV4FMNZx9NTDNhFH4kkyrELugqom4Ccjj/20170916_185750.jpg)

I can't remember the variety of this spinach, but it's been producing very well and hasn't gone to seed in the summer heat. Here I've thinned it out a bit and pulled out some of the leaves that my wife won't go near because of bug bites or discoloring.

![20170917_143554.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmbQtAYVG4Nh967iMpvJtUo6abcwL1VpQugWrjAH8BfDWw/20170917_143554.jpg)

Here is some spinach I planted about 2 weeks ago.  Its just an experiment to see what I can grow in September.

Fruits & Veggies Monday - Harvesting Our Watermelon
For Fruits and Veggies Monday today, am sharing you our mini YELLOW watermelon! They are super sweet including the white rind! How's that even possible???

And to be honest, we didn't know that they were gonna be sweet already as somehow they didn't grow big as watermelon at stores.

We picked one as we just wanted to see whether they were ripe or not, and to our surprise, it's yellow watermelon and already really juicy and sweet.

My mother sent the seeds from Indonesia and in all honesty, I have never eaten nor even seen yellow watermelon growing up πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ So this was really a big surprise. We rechecked the seed package, and it actually has red watermelon pi

Black Beans, yes please!
![IMG_3275.JPG](https://steemitimages.com/DQmSWshoHJvqMHZNFaZ6Y2aRX2k1wLUhZUoXW3E2ytConJ2/IMG_3275.JPG)

I did mention about our black beans in a previous post but I think they need one all their own as  well. We received some black bean seeds from a friend several years ago. We planted them, and got enough to grow more the next year but not many to eat. The next year, we shared many of them, then planted the rest,  again only ended up with a few to share and a few to eat. 

![IMG_3306.JPG](https://steemitimages.com/DQmTva5xF7LY2h5phBXPf4nxGCqz6dQwyboW8zwjjfhquVk/IMG_3306.JPG)

This year we were determined to get TONS. So, we planted three long rows of them! 

![IMG_3297.JPG](https://steemitimages.com/DQmYv24joELxNofqtFrawWGzQJEapxroL4e4Bqw3dct8VfW/IMG_3297.JPG)



While planting them I remember telling them, "you will be burgers, and you will be tacos, and you will go in soup!" Haha

Why Grow Grass and Buy Food? #168
<p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmTcjaPmwBTkkPrE1jT91v5HSscnwDRDpq9udr4xmC6pEy/grass%20instead%20of%20food.jpg</p>
<p>Every week I spend hundreds of dollars at the grocery store to buy foods I could grow at home!  What made it normal for us in the United States and other countries as insane as we are to use our beautiful topsoil to grow a completely useless crop?
  As people starve around the world every day, I have a yard full of grass at home and I spend money at the store to pay people in Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, and Ecuador to grow food for me!  WTF?  The problem is not somewhere else because it is in my own yard!</p>
<p>Once you see this, it's the most ridiculous thing in the world.  If that is not enough, the most absurd thing is that at 33 years old I JUST REALIZED THIS in day 168 of <a href="https://jerrybanfield.com/podcast/">Happier People Podcast!</a>  I hope this post acts as an inspiration for each of us including me to learn more about homesteading and gardening because Steem is full of beautifu

Decoding The Green Thumb, Demystifying Gardening.

I am writing this article because I believe in a future of self sufficiency and re connecting with the natural environment around us and well as rediscovering the value of basic commodity. By growing your own food you understand what the food you put into our bodies means. The time and intention it took to get to where it is ready for consumption. I have met an alarming amount of children that have no idea where our food comes from or even what it is. They would not recognize it in its raw form. Food comes wrapped in plastic, clean and finished. It's instant gratification, further conditioning that invested time is a waste of time. By a lack of understanding of the time it takes to create this source that is vital to our own life we create waste without the information to care. 

I have heard people say that they don't have green thumbs, and have often wondered what event happened that took t

My Homesteading Bucket List
When I was a child, I enjoyed playing under the fruit bearing trees that grandma planted such as the mango and Java plum trees. We used to have a hammock too tied in between our tamarind trees and enjoyed picking jack fruits. Missed all those and I missed grandma more.

Sadly that they needed to sell that portion of our land and those trees were cut down. But grandma did not stopped gardening as she started planting some vegetables in our vacant lot such as bitter gourd, sponge gourd and spinach greens. But later all spaces were cemented and vegetables were removed. 

Just recently, we started to plant squash and chili pepper, and I was able to grow some lemon seedlings posted here [Future Lemon Tree in the Pot, Squash and Chili Pepper](https://steemit.com/gardening/@zararina/future-lemon-tree-in-the-pot-squash-and-chili-pepper). Starting gardening again brings back happy memories and hope of being able to eat fresh produce again.

Manuka Honey. A trip to where it all started.
<html>
<p><center>rhttps://s19.postimg.org/kgrgri38z/IMG_1012.jpg<center/></p>
<p>This tiny little flower on a scraggly bush packs a powerhouse of goodness. &nbsp;This is New Zealand Manuka and the honey from this bush has taken the world by storm. &nbsp;</p>
<p>https://s19.postimg.org/ni929z1mb/IMG_0994.jpg</p>
<p>I am lucky enough to live just 20 minutes from where it all started, so thought I would take you on a quick drive out to Comvita who produce UMF honey. &nbsp;(The UFM stands for Unique Manuka Factor). I have chosen Comvita not <em>just</em> because I live so close, but because they were the first in the world to discover the UMF and in the face of strong opposition and ridicule they have not only survived, but proved themselves....Besides....I wanted to try the muffins at the cafe.</p>
<p>As usual, it had been raining as we headed out on our new-ish stretch of motorway to Comvita on the outskirts of Tauranga</p>

Summer is coming!
And for South Africans, in comparison to [Westerosi](http://awoiaf.westeros.org/index.php/Westeros) and winter, this is a grand turn of events, not the most terrifying experience of our lives. It brings dog walkers, not White Walkers, out of hibernation.

# What turns a South African's crank?
It might be cloudy today, but something which makes the South African heart go pitter patter even more than wedding bells (which will make sense if you've been reading the leadup to the Wedding of the Century - which I promise you I'll post about tomorrow) is the gentle sound of spring rains after the long dry season. The air smells of impending rain, and is bursting with the competing smells of flowering plants. Clouds mean rain, and rain spells relief from the long period of dusty, beige Highveld winter landscapes.

Spring arrived with force and splendour here in Johannesburg a couple of weeks ago, with trees racing each other into bud, leaf and flower. It's particularly heady in the late afternoons when @tim-beck and

A Walk Through the Wild Asters
A foggy Autumn morning provided a good opportunity to take a leisurely hike around a nearby marsh. The first thing that I, being an avid gardener, had noticed when we arrived, were the various colourful asters.

![image.jpeg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmY4HZzYS1n8tSfX42VkGuZGJrnZmC89nzu9o48ACht2sz/image.jpeg)

![image.jpeg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmdMg419yvkvCs1SEL9cCoVWD5Z5n1kcqngrBCQBt55Kta/image.jpeg)

Compared to the flowers in most well tended gardens, wild asters may seem small and insignificant, but their fragile and fleeting beauty has its own special appeal.

![image.jpeg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmQVZEcHyKVk2riP5fc3jMseKjRQr22RKR9iwfY71rf3e8/image.jpeg)

![image.jpeg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmT63GsC749vTfDLSwLd85HfNxtvTDxPPPgvADg7yMqLuz/image.jpeg)

The wild asters only last a short time and I'm happy that they were in such perfect form on the day we chose to visit the marsh.

Bruschetta!

Today was the day! A day full of football, and homemade bruschetta. As you know, I already baked my bread a few days earlier, so now, all I had to do is gather up the rest of my ingredients and whip it together.
![IMG_4221.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmcn1sBrdEXMWSd9Yv7vZzVNShuDeWCbXwkHQNW4TS3him/IMG_4221.jpg)
First, a trip out to the garden to pick some fresh Basil.

![IMG_4223.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmezD3t2rMaE6YSdYULTrqtbgH6N2WVcvrJNSyXDhThcS4/IMG_4223.jpg)
A few tomatoes (store bought, but if you have your own, even better!), onion, and basil. Slice, dice, chop your tomatoes how you see fit. Toss them in a big storage bowl.

Finely chop your basil. Now, as a not so good knife wielder, I have to improvise when chopping such fine things as basil. I found that scissors do wonders in this department. I gather about 10-15 leaves of basil (personal preference, can be used to taste), and I take

Colorchallenge Monday Red - Big Tomato
It's not that often that a garden tomato is perfect..inside and out. I regret that I didn't take a picture of this beauty before I cut it, so you'll just have to take my word for it. 

![image.jpeg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmRmNgxEQyCNyZaDJKqM6ZGfPyDkkqS1dHTeZpkPLi1Kuc/image.jpeg)

Did I mention that it is sitting on a dinner plate?

Not really, but it "was" a big one and it helped to provide several BLT sandwiches for lunch!

WEEK 1 OF MY GARDENING AND DIGGING A HOLE FOR ELECTRICITY POST,HOMESTEADERS LOVER..
Good day friends and to all of my fellow steemians..


Today i did alot of things,as a homesteaders early morning when i awake. I hear a little bit noise like hammer..when i get off from bed,i saw my brother making a hole for electricity post..


We are living simple as you think,we use only solar panel for our light and charging gadgets and for fan load only..when i saw my brother doing it alone,i decided to replace him and cotinue what he are doing..

My garden left me a letter and I have come to terms with it, begrudgingly

>Dear Farmer,
>We regret to inform you of the early demise of your garden. Due to forces both inside and outside your control the bulk of the plants are either dead or dying. Those of us who are willing to confess include Spider Mites (who send their regards), Aphids (who send a hearty thank you), Powdery Mildew (who exploded spores in exultation), and the 2 nights of freezing temperatures (which said, "Tough shit! I'm NATURE!"). We thank you for the food source you provided and your ignorance of effective control of us. We look forward to the feast you provide next year.
Sincerely
Your Garden & Nature

This is the letter I was left with Saturday morning. I kinda knew it was coming but didn't want to give in and admit it. The summer has been the longest period of no rain in the area in recorded history and the land is parched now. 70+ days with no rain means all the native plants and trees a

Continuing the Grape Processing on a Rainy day
<b>It's raining pretty hard today for only the second day after 80 days of no rain. Sounds like the perfect time to proceess some grapes.

36 pounds of grapes from this harvest plus the 10 pounds from earlier gives about 50 pounds of grapes from the 2 Somerset grape vines this year. This is far better than last year and today I only was able to get through 17.5 pounds processed today but that is partly due to lack of gallon jugs for freezing the juice. 

![IMG_20170918_135214469.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmRmZ2GojVWunWcGozrACYymWtuDHvDimEgWtxMB2BxwmA/IMG_20170918_135214469.jpg)

For a little while I had a helper, but his attention span is a little limited given he is almost 4. He does well, but the little energy bugs seem to get under his skin, like scarabs, and he has to go do something to burn it off. We started the processing at 2:15pm.

![IMG_20170919_142159194_HDR.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmYeFJjrFhHnooiWArHwGh3rDEaeL6rT53T9i8yeGwLBpw/IMG_20170919_142159194_HDR.jpg)

Rice is the main food crops producing staple food in Indonesia and continuously developed for the creation of maximum production. The people of Indonesia have made rice as a staple crop so that the increasing demand for rice in Indonesia compared to other commodities as alternative food such as corn, cassava, sago, and potatoes. The local government once participated in campaigning "a day without rice" but did not think about the availability of alternative substitute for rice, so the impression is only the wind then
