Raspberries are tearing it up for the second year! Can’t believe it I’ve started breaking them apart and spreading I want MORE. haha you’ll find me making a dinner out of them come harvest time. 

Borage pictured below is about to bloom I remember it being taller in the past gardens I’ve had. We will see:) beautiful blue bee loving flowers.

Holy tomato blossoms! 

Cilantro just killing the game, would you look at that thing grow! I love cilantro on fresh tacos! Too delicious!

A Glimpse Into an Urbangarden

chicken coop, Compost Pile, garden

Intro for those new, this is the garden we started a year and a couple months ago. We had an old coop, now we got a new one, had no walls now we do have walls, soils slightly better and growing as the compost is fattening. Check out all the worms in my compost, I use red wigglers. Stay tuned it’s going to get real country.


Below is my tomato planter I have a variety of tomatoes. Behind them is a stump planter with wave petunias. Dragged the stump from a river and it was hollowed. 


My chickens pictured below are very very good to me, I get 2 eggs a day…change their water and feed them very often. 

Get them and keep them happy and they will provide for you.


Fresh cilantro enjoyed last night for dinner, the first yeild of this years garden. Very very good.


Borage flowers that have yet to bloom very early, the flowers attract many bees and can be eaten as well. Many places use as a garnish.

The garden becomes peaceful when dusk rolls in, nice place to enjoy a good book, or relax with the birds.


Green beans seem to be growing well after getting in too early this year. 


This is my compost pile. The key to good soil, as mentioned earlier, is red wigglers in the pile actively feasting on all the good scraps.


The goal is to grow what you eat, grow more than you can eat and give to those who you love.

Raspberries flowering, tomatoes flowering, sunflowers growing, everything’s beginning!

garden

Holy moly I noticed my tomatoes flowering already!!! And then I look at my raspberries and they’re flowering too! I’m so excited y’all as it keeps growing this place will yield and yeilds and yeild.

Don’t let the grocery store have you.

Got these ferns from a good friends mom she was so sweet to lend me them. Can’t wait until next year when they come back so full. Ferns are rarely seen in the city. They’d prolly call them blight. Good all ordinances coming to the rescue!


Look at them raspberrys^^Anyways there’s my pictures for y’all! Please comment message and share!!! Love y’all

Garden update 5/25/16

garden

Things are going swell I truly believe Summer’s here now, my girl loves sand baths in the summers sun. Her and I have been plugging away! Pay days this week so I’m hoping to get a lot more plants installed. 

One of my followers reccomended reaching out to a tree service company for free mulch. It just so happens my neighbor owns a company hat does that. He’s always hauling a big chipper with him. I went to chat with him yesterday and he said some time this week or next hes going to give me a whole trailer full! It’s not the decrotive mulch with dyes and what not. It’s the natural! I’m so hype once I get that spread you all just wait!

Pictured above is my herb box, cilantro and basil doing good! Parsley is in there somewhere too. I didn’t know this but cilantro will begin to flower and seed and the seeds are actually a different spice. The seeds are called coriander, I had no idea hahahah!! Please share anything you think of as I’m new to this whole thing too!
Please enjoy stay swift and be easy baby.

Funny how much of a different mulch can make in your garden.

garden

As you know I’ve been working steady on this puppy cleaning it up. I’m very pleased my brothers been telling me to put it at the base of each plant too so it helps them to retain moisture. Once I get some money here I’m going to get a couple yards delivered to the house. I love the look it creates:)


Look at that junk pile shhhhh don’t tell the city! I promise it won’t be there long.



But yeah steady trucking wins the race:)

Peacey’ally’all 

Cleaning up a winters mess!

Spring 2016

Been out here working and cleaning up the yard. I let it get really bad this winter and finally found some good weather to cleanup! I’d say I have a truckload of junk to goto the dump!    
    
Birds are happy and Laying!

 Plenty of cleanup to still do, I also have to repair the fense it seems to have shifted from original position. Nothing a few reinforced beams won’t cure.

   
Everything’s beginning to pop up! I can’t wait to get the garden going! Day Lilly’s and hostas and a few other things are starting to show!

 

Get out and get dirty

Thanks all
