I didn’t really consider that two pounds of onion transplants would take up a whole bed...fingers crossed for red and yellow onions next year
💨Who made the first wind chime?
💨The Times of India says that wind chimes have been around since 1100BC when ancient Chinese civilizations cast the first wind bells called Fenglings. Considered religious objects which could attract kind spirits, it’s no wonder they’ve maintained their enchanted status throughout time. But how did they enter western culture with such widespread appreciation?
💨According to West Park Gallery, when Japan opened their ports to western countries in the mid-1800’s, eastern traditions and material goods began to make their way to Europe and the Americas for the first time. Now cultures around the world enjoy wind chimes around their homes and gardens.
Not long until these summer seedlings will go into the patch. Tomato, chilli, capsicum and basil are staples at our place. If you are thinking of planting tomatoes in the coming weeks, don’t fall into the trap of planting several of the same variety. Mix it up, so you have a tomato for every occasion. 🍅 🌶 🌿 🌱
Something will grow from all that you are going through, and it will be you!
Lots of people say they can’t start a garden cause they live in an apartment. Upon closer inspection, you’ll discover that LOTS of these people have balconies! As our friend @plant.nerd.melbourne
shows, you can grow a LOT of food in a pretty tight space quite efficiently. In this space, there’s room to walk through the middle, there’s a LOT of stuff growin and nothing is constricting. Good work yo 👍
The balcony this evening 💚 #balconygarden
Feeling grateful for today’s mini harvest 🍆🍅🌶
🎶"There's got to be a morning after, if we can hold on through the night. We have the chance to find the sunshine, let's keep on looking for the light."🎶 😁
If I were out in my hoop tunnels tonight with my veggies, I know the theme song from The Poseidon Adventure is what they would all be singing!😄 No worries...the temperatures are dropping, but everything is snuggled in bed...raised bed(s)!😄
Nunggu ganti warna aja sampai sebulanan, jadi kebayang gimana lamanya menunggu mereka bisa gede sejak semai dulu 😆🔥

Mau mulai menanam hidroponik?
Jangan takut langsung memikirkan pipa-pipa rumit dan pompa di sana sini.
Kita bisa bertanam menggunakan rumah tanam yang sederhana saja seperti botol amdk dan box styrofoam.

Our children are naturally curious learners, and nature is a wonderful teacher! We are happy to launch our first pre-school programme for the more junior of our junior urban farmers! Through this hands-on workshop, your kids will discover the joys of outdoor exploration and sow seeds for a lifetime of nature appreciation! Our early-childhood and MOE-trained instructors will guide them in learning basic gardening skills, including planting, watering and harvesting, while reinforcing language and numeracy skills.
The workshop runs for two days on 27 Oct and 28 Oct, and we encourage participation for both days, as the learning outcomes differ. The Workshops are also available for single-day purchase.
Keen to sign our young ones up? Click through the link and enjoy early bird promo!

Eggplant and tomato from our front yard. 🍅 Our Finance professor once taught us the value of growing your own vegetables at home. His explanation was too long. Basta it had to do with economy churva.😅#growyourownfood #organic
Harvesting Cabbage is one of the best feelings as a gardener, man when that cracking sound happens you know it's fresh!
This time of year we have sacks of our homegrown Macadamia nuts hanging in our shed drying! They are such an asset to us. We use them in baking, pesto, bread, bliss balls you name it! I have been inspired by @begoodorganics
to use some to make nut butter! So the kids and I have been sorting through some to see which ones a dry enough to crack! You can do this by shaking the nut and if you hear it move inside the shell it is ready! Now for the cracking part! I really need to invest in a good macadamia nut cracker! Any suggestions?
Hell yeah! We brought a tea lounge to The Sanctuary in Ojai and served two nights creating a cozy space for mingling and celebration. Shout out to everyone who contributed, especially all the freestyling and beatboxing magic!! I always wish I took more pics =P
