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 sautรฉes, and summer salads throughout what we believe will be #thebestsummerever! ...

Raise your hand if you've got tomatoes in the ground! ๐Ÿ… ๐Ÿ‘‹ 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 + sautรฉ + roast + stuff + pickle + oh sorry, I've gotten carried away... ๐ŸŒผ ๐Ÿ ...

Instagram post 18129076570168344 Outter space called... ๐Ÿ‘พ๐Ÿ‘พ๐Ÿ‘พ 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!

Picklin' Sundays | One bunch of #organic trimmed asparagus (or any seasonal #springtimeharvest), 1 tsp each: mustard seeds, peppercorns, dill seed, 2 halved garlic cloves, and a good shake of red pepper flakes (for #spicyspears!). Add all to a clean glass jar. Bring 1 part vinegar/1 part water, and a healthy pinch of salt to a simmer. Pour over spears until submerged, refrigerate, eat with abandon. ...

We're going bananas (see last post ๐ŸŒ) over this insane #foodjungle at the home of one of our clients! This #kitchengarden is a repurposed #backyardchicken coop. We really can grow #urbangardens in creative spaces, and since this structure offers complete protection from #gardenpests and our beloved wildlife, these harvests are second to none! ...
