During the #summertime, our corporate farms boast pounds and pounds of #organicproduce as our #farmteam fills these huge kitchen prep tubs headed straight into #corporaterestaurant lunches. If you're like us, then you know there's nothing sweeter than eating right out of the garden. #itdoesn'tgetmorelocalthanthis ...

We're nearing the end of #CaliforniaPoppy season as petals drop and seed pods burst open to start anew. How lucky are we to witness this beauty? Who's growing these orange beauties at home? 👋 ...

Nasturtiums are delicious (and spicy!) #edibleflowers that self-seed. Add the blossoms to salads, pickle their seeds, wrap sashimi in #nasturtiumleaves, but whatever you do, keep them in containers. These gorgeous plants are considered invasive in temperate climates like Southern California where they easily #overwinter. Their vines take over hillsides and can make it difficult for #californianativeplants to thrive. So we recommend them for your #containergarden and #raisedbedgarden only! 👈 ...

Interplanting marigolds with your summertime #pepperplants isn’t just a pretty idea. Bonuses include:⠀

Attracting beneficial insects to your #gardenbeds 🐞 ⠀
Bringing the bees to the yard for #pollination 🐝 ⠀
Potentially inhibiting the spread of #nematodes 👾 ⠀

They’re ALSO pretty, let’s not take that away from them. Plus, they easily re-seed for blooms all season long!

#Organicorchardcare is so much more than providing an occasional haircut. Ensuring your soil is nutrient rich, bark and branches are pest-free, and your #fruittrees are covered in fountains of #springblossoms is a science! Who's ready for lemonade, lemon leaf tea, lemon bars, lemon curd, lemon zest on everything, lemonade popsicles... 👋 ...

This gorgeous bed of heirloom corn and climbing beans was brought to you by Farmer Jazz at #CFG last summer. Succession planting both of these #warmweathercrops every two weeks will keep you in cobs for grilling, beans for sautées, and summer salads throughout what we believe will be #thebestsummerever! ...

Raise your hand if you've got tomatoes in the ground! 🍅 👋 If you're new to planting, these tips will encourage strong root systems and a focus on green growth prior to #fruitset: 1. Remove the bottom third of the plant's foliage and sink deep enough into the soil that the area is covered - tomato plants will grow roots from any area submerged! 2. Remove any existing buds at planting time. Voila! #somanytomatoes ...

Hey there, pretty! These gorgeous bursts of sunshine open up wide, first thing in the morning, begging for bees and butterflies to stop on by and spread pollen. We're planting #summersquash in our #ediblegardens any day now, and soon we'll be up to our eyelashes in squash to grill + sauté + roast + stuff + pickle + oh sorry, I've gotten carried away... 🌼 🐝 ...

Outter space called... 👾👾👾 Wait, that's just an excited potato! When planting #seedpotatoes, which are grown specifically for propagation, you'll know they're ready for #organicsoil when they begin to sprout fraggle toupees like this one. They like well-draining compost-rich soil, and thrive both in the ground and in large containers. April marks the end of the planting window, so get to sowing! ...
