Are you also gardening? Have you sown early in the Spring? Then.. like us - you must also be harvesting here and there aren't you?
If you remember back when it was sowing season, I posted this and in the video there I showed you we were sowing radishes.
Have you ju
Have you ever encountered a plant that smells like garlic, looks like a bit of an onion with the leaves of a lily? What did you do? Did you look it up or did you just dig it up and ditch it?
Have you any secret recipes you could share us of ramsons? Steemit it!
Between working over the road right now, a new little pepper showing up, and investing a good amount of time and effort into steemit, my garden is somewhat lacking this year. I’ve got some cucumbers, Chinese red noodle beans, kiwanos, kale, popcorn and other plants growing, but I still have a lot more to put in. Here is one example of a pile of seedlings that I still have to get in the earth.
The plan is to get the rest of the seedlings and seeds into the garden today and tomorrow, but we will see what actually happens. My only consolation is that up in Wisconsin I often would not plant my garden until June 1st or so, because of the risk of frost sometimes still late into May.
As I was preparing to plan out the rest of the garden, I n
STEEMIT Just Kicked YOUTUBE In The SHINS! OUCH!
Hey All! We are an off grid family that live in the American Ozarks! My wife and I have 2 kids and we live together with her parents on 56 acres. We are only tied to the grid here via a DSL line that we power with solar power. We've been doing this for 5 years now and LOVE living this way.
Recently our Youtube channel was flagged with Youtube's new algorithm that pulls what it believes is non-advertiser friendly content. It was a video showing how we process our own grass fed non-commercially raised animals. We appealed their ruling and they replied with,

Well, a week to winter and we have not even had 20 millimetres of rain. Our dams are down to 11% usable water and we face the very real prospect of having no sewerage and running water in taps.

So Saturday morning I set about preparing the platform for the tank
I purchased sixteen 400 x 400 x 35mm concrete pavers and cleared and leveled the area and started placing the pavers so..
Come out to my garden and let me show you the soil-dirt that we started with and then show you what I'm growing in today. I can literally grow anything I want in my garden and all it took was a little TLC and knowledge to get started.

I am building this wall from a salvaged wood/pvc pipe trellis, our leftover stems from an herb harvests, dying cut flowers, overgrown vines, shrink wrap, and bamboo grown on the perimeter of the @gardenofeden.
During the harvest of the masses amounts of herbs grown at the @gardenofeden for tea, sachets, smoke blends, a luxurious bath or culinary treats, I looked at the piles of stems of all colors (the generally unusable parts) that were going to the compost, and felt called to put them to other beneficial purpose.
This is a fabulously old beech tree found at Wave Hill Public Gardens in the Bronx, New York City.
I took this photo last June. It doesn't seem to mind all the graffitti.
(ps. If anyone reads this...I am not seeing the thumbnail photo on my post on the home page. Is that happening to anyone else?)
This is the vegetables on my balcony.In the beginning of May, I planted mini tomatoes and "Ririko" tomatoes on the balcony of my house. Mini tomatoes quickly grow bigger, the first fruit is beginning to grow.
It's nice to see how every week different plants are beginning to bloom. Today I noticed that our lupines (Lupinus polyphyllus) are already showing their yellow, blue and red flowers which are attracting lots of bumblebees and other insects.

It's been 3 months since moving to our little piece of paradise in the Kootenays. My husband and I have never felt so close to Mother Earth as we do right now. I made a promise that when we moved, we would not just talk the talk but we would walk the walk and make a huge difference on our footprint on this beautiful planet.
First thing we did was sell a vehicle. We realized that 2 was too many and the costs of fuel and maintenance on one was enough.
Second thing we did was rent a home! We knew that the housing and financial markets were in a massive bubble so we chose to keep our condo as a rental income and step into another person's house for a very reduced monthly bill.
As soon as we moved in, we decided to build a large garden that will supply us all winter with fundamen
Stop thinking of yourself as a goat or sheep farmer. You need to think of yourself as a GRASS farmer. If you have healthy grass and pastures, you will have healthy goats and sheep. The same goes for cows!
BEWARE of commercialized breeds! We at first made the horrible mistake of trying to raise a commercial breed naturally with avoiding wormers and medicines. It did not end well.
If you want to raise healthy strong grass fed animals, you need to find heritage breeds that can withstand not using modern livestock methods.

Yes, I grow this year after year and now I'm sharing it with my fellow Steemers!
Here is a plant that will make you a successful gardener GUARANTEED! The Sunchoke or what is sometimes called the Jerusalem Artichoke will always produce year after year for your family. Once you plant it, you can count on it coming back each year and always giving you food for the winter. It will be almost impossible for you to kill the sun chokes. Even the worst gardener can grow this!
We've been growing the sunchoke for 4 years now. My wife makes a great soup with it!
With this plant in your garden, your family will never starve!
I am temporarily living in New Brunswick Canada. I signed up to Steemit thanks to Gregory Mannarino. I'm certainly not here because I am a crytocurrency fan. I have no idea how to be one. I didn't care about Bitcoin until I started reading Clif High's web bot reports. I followed the price when the webbots started mentioning the $888 number. I took all the Bitcoin books out of the library at that point and vowed to figure it out. I looked at the covers and then the books sat in a pile until the due date and back to the library they went. If there is a post on Steemit or info anywhere called
Crytocurrencies for Dummies could some direct me to the source? Or, Gregory, if you read this, could you come over to our house and teach us all about cryptocurrencies and I will cook you the best vegan Italian dinner you have ever had.

I am below average height, a fact that doesn't bother me too much. In fact, I am a good sport about my diminutive stature and play along with all of the short jokes hurled down upon me from above. There are some things about being vertically challenged that I find truly taxing, and weed eating used to be be one of them.
A standard weedeater probably works just fine for someone 5'4" or taller, but for us stature-lacking folks it presents an ergonomic issue. I would have to hold the weed eater aloft, about shoulder high and then swing it in a weed-whacking swath of unwanted foliage massacring doom. Don't get me wrong, I like a good muscle scream inducing workout, but running a weed eater in that particular manner was more Spanish Inquisition than Beachbody workout.
One day I was wandering through
