You guys have been so supportive of my super tired and short of breath pregnant self with this new IGTV video and I’m forever grateful. I was hesitant about branching out to more channels to deliver our message but I had to revert back to why @blackgirlswirhgardens exist, my explore page is filled with plant videos with people who don’t look like us 💁🏾♀️ so cheers to more content filled with us doing what we love! 🌱✨ #BlackGirlsWithGardens oh BTW, new followers, I’m Jasmine the founder of this platform and member of this amazing black plant mama community! Say hi or something. I talk to everyone when I can.
I get a lot of questions from people who want to start canning food but are overwhelmed or scared and don't know where to begin, so I thought I would share my journey. My husband actually canned pickles long before I met him and a water bath canner became part of my kitchen before I even knew what to do with it. Then, about ten years ago, I decided to pull it out of the cupboard and see what it was all about. I bought a copy of the Ball Blue Book and made some strawberry jam for the very first time. I was so amazed with how easy and fun it was that I quickly moved on to applesauce, jellies, and pickles. A few years later, as we began gardening and growing more of our own vegetables, I also decided to buy a pressure canner and learn to use that. All along, my Ball Blue Book was the perfect guide, providing safe recipes and canning instructions. The key to canning is sterile equipment, clean food, and safe recipes. Once you master the proven recipes, you can play with a little different flavoring and spice here and there without compromising acidity levels and safety. If fear is holding you back from getting started, I want to encourage you to try. Start with high acid foods that can be safely preserved in a water bath and once you get the hang of that, you may get bitten by the canning bug like I did. It's been ten years now and I can't imagine what my kitchen life would be like without all of those pretty jars lined up on my shelves! #youcandoit#canning#crazycanninglady#foodpreservation#canner#putitup#fillingjars#preservetheharvest#selfsufficiency#selfsufficientliving#sustainability#homesteading#homestead#homesteadlife#farmher#farmlife#homesteadkitchen#kitchenlife#gardening#growyourfood#knowyourfood
Not only is @studiolilykwong's mission to create beautiful, natural environments; we are also all about education and learning more about the sociological effects of plants and the impact they have on our society. I am currently collaborating with DUO, fellow @ColumbiaGSAPP Incubator members based at @newinc on a very special study - discovering the dynamic of stress levels and emotional empathy of #SummerInWinter visitors.

My White Icicle Radish 👌
مهم نیست ساکن کجای دنیا باشی . هرجا که باشی ، یک ضرب المثل گیلانی هست که میگه :
تُرب بُخور پَلا بُخور 😁
امروز کمی ترب و برگ ترب چیدم از باغچه و برای عشقام . البته اونقدری که برگ ترب خونه ی ما طرفدار داره ، خود ترب نداره 😎 گیلانی های عزیز میدونن چی میگم .
Sow radish seeds in well-worked soil after danger of frost in early spring, again in late summer for fall crop. In frost free areas, sow in the fall.Sow thinly in rows about 6" apart. Cover with 1/2" of fine soil; firm lightly and keep evenly moist.Seedlings emerge in 4-6 days.Thin to stand about 2" apart.Sow winter radishes in midsummer for late fall and winter use. They can grow large with several inches of root showing above ground.
Keep weeds under control during the growing season. Weeds compete with plants for water, space and nutrients, so control them by either cultivating often or use a mulch to prevent their seeds from germinating.Water continuously and evenly. Avoid over-fertilizing radish plants.Keep plants well watered during dry periods to promote uninterrupted growth. Plants need about 1 inch of rain per week during the growing season. Use a rain gauge to check to see if you need to add water. It’s best to water with a drip or trickle system that delivers water at low pressure at the soil level. If you water with overhead sprinklers, water early in the day so the foliage has time to dry off before evening, to minimize disease problems. Keep the soil moist but not saturated.Monitor for pests and diseases. Check with your local Cooperative Extension Service for pest controls recommended for your area.
Pull spring radishes when they are the proper size for the type, about 25 days after planting. If you wait too long to harves
🔅 SAUCHA 🔅 Existe un principio en yoga que trata de la pureza, de cuerpo físico, de mente y de espíritu ! Es el primero de los niyamas y se traduce usualmente como “Pureza” o “Limpieza”.
👉🏼 Mi interpretación es la siguiente: PUREZA de pensamiento, de palabra y acción. Si todo lo que haces es puro de verdad tus resultados serán auténticos 💚 lindo miércoles !
PD: mañana lanzo un sorteito dulce 100 % puro btw 😜!

Das ist quasi unsere Weihnachtstomate. Lilly, unsere kleinste im Hause, hatte diese im Sommer auf der Fensterbank stehen und nun versuchen wir sie über den Winter zu bekommen! Auch jetzt trägt sie Früchte 😇 Auf diesem Weg allen eine schöne Adventszeit :) #wintertomato#xmasgarden#gardening#gartenzwerginnen
