“It’s okay to start again. It’s okay to change your mind about things you were so sure about because you’ve grown, because you’ve seen life in countless ways that now reflect your change, because you’re not the same person you were weeks, months and years ago. It is okay to walk on a timeline that is different to others. Because it’s no less than theirs, it’s not behind anyone else’s and it’s not ahead either – it’s yours. It’s unique and special to you, so embrace it. It is okay to watch things that you wanted fall out of your grasp and watch other things fall into it. It is okay to take a break, it is okay to take a breather, it is okay to give up and start all over again, it is okay to decide when something isn’t meant for you and it is okay to decide when something is. Embrace your journey, with every soft and sharp hill that you must cross to get to where you want to be. And even if you’re unsure about where that is, even if you don’t want to think of the long journey but the small road ahead of you, in the shape of hours, days, or weeks that unwind before you – that is still okay. The point is, you can choose to slow down, and you can choose to fasten your pace, and one choice is no bigger or better than the other. Because the choice depends on your personal battle and your experiences and everything that’s particular to you. Don’t wrap yourself up with jealousy, competition, or bitterness. Keep your eyes on your own timeline, on your own journey, on what you need and what you deserve, and spread love and light wherever you go.”
This is the last post from @sarahs.socal.garden today! It has been awesome having her today! Go check out her profile and follow her. She is full of great information! Violas depicted above or a pansy is a great addition to add to your garden. They cheer up any fall and winter garden with colorful blooms, plus they can survive a light frost. Not only are these delicate flowers attractive, they're also edible. Add to salads, sautée, or use as a garnish for desserts and cakes. 📸: @sarahs.socal.garden
List Season - What was there too much of? What was there not enough of? What did I reach for with every bouquet I assembled and what lay to waste in the field, pretty on paper but unproductive in our climate. Which colors and shapes could we use more of? Which gorgeous filler came and went in a flash, needing 4 more succession plantings next season? It’s seed ordering season and a gardeners mind is full of all the beautiful possibilities that lay ahead! #wildcreekgarden#grownnotflown#fieldtovase#growyourown

“Some things you know about, you know what the ingredients are - maybe not all of them. But it’s up to you to put in the amount. “ - Dame Judi Dench . Love this quote. The next line I think is something like: “It’s up to the director to nag you until you get it right.” ☺️ . My nagging looks more like a never ending to-do list. Lol. Hope you’re all well and staying sane with the holidays. . Me, I’ll be over here sorting out the ingredients and their amounts. 😊 #growwhatyoulove . . . . . . . #garden#seasons#growyourown#mygardenlife#grateful#wellness
Blueberries & beans 💙 My parents are coming up tomorrow 🥰 I cannot wait for their company. Mum and dad always help us complete our garden projects and always refuse to let me pay 💗 so spoilt and grateful. Who knows what we will get done this weekend! 👏😁
Tomato Celano is so delicious and beautiful you'll want to eat them right of the vine! Celano was selected as an AAS winner for its delicious, sweet taste, texture, deep color and healthy plants that produces ample yields.
Our plums (or more technically pluots) are going nuts at this time of year. This is a @flemingsnurseries "Flavour Rouge" variety. It is a cross between a plum and an apricot, with the plum parentage being dominant hence it is called a Pluot :) It really has the best qualties of both parents, with blood red flesh and the delicious sweetness of a ripe apricot. This is our most prolific fruit tree and produces 50kg+ each year, which is plenty for us and the kids to gobble, with enough to bottle so we have delicious pluots the whole year. If you look back at one of my old posts, you can see the tree covered with thousands of flowers which have now become all this delicious fruit. It has been such a dry year and we haven't watered the tree at all, it still bears prolifically but I have noticed that the size of the fruit is smaller this year. I don't often have time to water the garden, and we have horribly sandy soil so everything in my garden is tested to be drought tolerant 😁 I am also growing other varieties of pluot, and one aprium tree (apricot x plum with apricot dominant which I will post about later). Highly recommend these trees. And no I am not affiliated with Flemings, just a raving fan!
How cute is his excited giggle?! We started these chard seeds back in July but they’ve been our most productive plant so far this Fall! I’m finding so many ways to add chard into many meals while we are waiting for our carrots, peas and broccoli to be ready. Im thinking some kind of soup for dinner tonight! What’s your fav way to eat swiss chard?! #swisschard#eatyourgreens#gardeningwithkids#growyourown#grownfromseed#zone9a
The Tomatoes are starting to pick up the pace and we are now getting daily handfuls! It’s a moment I look forward to every Summer! These Tommy Toe Cherry Toms are some of the biggest I’ve ever grown and they taste amazing! 🌿
I am sloooowly getting my colors back! I feel like my birds take a little Extra time off for their yearly molt😂. ✧ Enjoy the break ladies! Self care! You do You! You got this! You will be laying baskets and baskets before we know it!
Hachiya Persimmons! These fruit treats when ripe* are unbelievably sweet, almost jam like. The key to these oval shaped persimmons is eating when absolutely ripe and are a different variety from the Fuyu persimmon which look like an orange tomato with its squatty orange-reddish flesh. The Hachiya persimmon must, I mean must be eaten when very soft to the touch, thats when you know their ripe. When eaten unripe, it'll potentially scare you from eating persimmons again because it has an unruly bitter flavor when eaten unripe. 📸: @sarahs.socal.garden
I can’t believe it, my Mongolian Giant sunflowers have grown taller than the garden shed. Yay! 🎉 . The past few years I’ve planted giant sunflowers and although they grew tall they didn’t grow this tall, and the flower heads developing all the way at the top of these sky scrapers are massive. How awesome would it be to finish off the year with a truely gigantic sunflower, one of the ones you see on Instagram sometimes that you think just can’t be real 🌻 . I’ll give these beauties a liquid feed of worm wee to keep them growing with some extra nutrients and see what that does. If you’ve got any advice on giving them a growing boost feel welcome to let me know! 🙏 #giantsunflowers#mongoliangiant#growinggiantthings#whatwillpennygrownext#veggiegarden#growingveggies#urbangarden#urbangardening
Hi! I’m Hilary, co-owner of @seattleurbanfarmco (SUFCo) and the person behind this account. I’ve been pretty quite around here lately and all I can say is that Insta has taken a backseat to life over the past few months, but I’m still here and SUFCo is still going strong! Starting this Friday I’ll be sharing 12 days of favorite gardening tips from our two books, “Food Grown Right, In Your Backyard” (@mountaineersorg 2012) and “High-Yield Vegetable Gardening” (@storeypub 2015). My hope is that this provides some inspiration as we head into the shortest days of the year. For those of you looking for fun practical gifts you can give the garden lover in your life, follow along because you may get a few good ideas! The series starts Friday and I look forward to sharing ideas and dreaming of spring gardens with you all then! . . . #kitchengarden#potager #diy #gardeninspiration #lovegardening #growwhatyoueat#growingfood #instagardeners #ediblegarden #garden #gardening #mygarden #allotment #growyourownfood #terratrellis #homegarden#backyardgarden #vegetablegarden #organicgardening #urbangarden #gardenlife #seattle #organicgarden #gardenlove#growyourown#gardentotable

Enfocas tu mente y tu atención al cumplimiento de tus objetivos sin importar el sin fin de situaciones y circunstancias que planean arruinar tu camino!! No te preocupes por lo que hace el otro, por criticar al otro, por mofarte o imitar a otro, ocúpate de caminar por ti mismo, de crecer con bases, con conocimientos y aunque sea el mínimo de valores que te hacen crecer como persona y profesional!!

I have in possession persimmons, pomegranates, and satsumas that was given to me. The persimmons came off my parents own tree, that how I’ve been eating them for years, and the other two fruits was also gifted by them. * Do I plant on growing these fruits myself? I hope you thought yes she’s going to. If you did, then you’re right! I planted a persimmon tree two years ago, and I purchased two Wonderful Pom pomegranate trees this year. I do grow a citrus, it’s a Meyer lemon plant, but I want some sort of orange. I thought I wanted a satsuma, but after being gifted some, I don’t think I want to grow one anymore, crazy I know. Though it was good & kind of sweet, I didn’t care much for how the membrane sticks to the actual fruit 🤷🏻♀️. * I need some recommendations for orange varieties, keep in mind that it will have to be grown in a container due to the cold winters here. I like my oranges sweet, seedless or little as possible amount of seeds, and easy to peel. Not too much to ask for, right 😜😂 Drop some ideas below & share your thoughts. 🧡
Christmas arrives in my studio tomorrow so one last shot of it filled with everlastings, I’ve loved shipping these out to folks, bunches of crispy colourful joy winging their way around the uk (and Germany!)
