#Garden pics 🌿
I really should post more on this, but like so many things pictures just don’t do it justice.
Also you’ll notice my garden is not any sort of an ordinary one, most things are mixed together and planted to benefit each other; #companionplanting
I have a very small backyard, and it is north facing, but despite this I’m still able to grow a solid 20% of my own food with relative ease
The beds are a mix of #Garlic, #Kale, #mustard greens, #broccolini, #cauliflower, with some #strawberries under the tree and some #potatoes and #beans by the back fence.
Also pictured is my dwarf #mandarin tree, #raspberry bush, and my second grow bag bed which has #bokchoy, #onions, #sorrel, and more broccolini
Day 14: Today was a day full of new classes and experiences! We spent the first part of the day digging up raspberry plants and I've got to admit it was a little rough getting all the roots up! After we got them dug up we moved them and replanted them. We learned how to harvest asparagus, got some amazing spring salads for lunch and met this beautiful guy!! He is a Belgian Draft horse and we had a class on horse behavior and training! I never knew it, but horses sense our emotions and they react based on our behaviors. I remember when I was a child, riding for one of the first times and my horse took off into a canter. I screamed my faced off!! Now I realize as an adult, the horse could probably sense my fear. It was a very cool and useful experience! After we finished class we headed into the mushroom house to innoculate our first batches of oyster mushrooms! You have to cook the straw, and once it's done and cooling, you have to be in a sterile environment. We packed these cylinder bags with the straw and the spores to get them started. It was very cool, and I'm excited to see how my mushrooms turn out!! :) #skullsandkittens#raspberry#planting#farming#farmlifebestlife#organicfarming#organic#asparagus#harvest#springsalad#horse#belgianhorse#horsey#horsesofinstagram#canter#trot#mushrooms#mushroominnoculation#innoculation#turnerfarm#sustainableagriculture
