Indian yellow cucumber! I grow more than one type of cucumber but this by far outgrows all the others. It grows like a weed and each week has grown far beyond what I thought it would.

Lavender hates wet feet. With that being said, with all of the rain we gave gotten lately, this is my lavender. I am not content to let it go so "Operation Purple" will commence this evening. I'll remove the mulch, prune it back, recheck the drainage holes, and add some compost. I had started to lose my mint plants a few weeks back for other issues, so I pruned heavily, fed with fish fertilizer, and made sure they were evenly watered and they bounced back for ya girl. Even though lavender has a different nature, I'm ready to try and save its life! πŸ‘©πŸ½β€πŸŒΎβœŠπŸ½ . . _________ #growing #organicgardening #blackgirlsgarden #browngirlsgarden #zone8 #zone8b #zone8gardening #containergardening #growingherbs #gardening #containerherbs #growinglavender #lavender #savingherbs #lavenderhateswetfeet #blackwomenwithgardens #blackgirlswithgardens #austinorganicgardeners #austingardeners #centraltxgardening #texasgardening #texasgardener #bonnieplants

Summer has been a fun transition that has required some adjustments, and I'm soaking in all the goodness of it. The #sahm life is quite rich and sweet. 😊 Most of my workouts have moved to indoor workouts before Avery wakes up. HIIT workouts are my best friend right now. Short and effective. Yesterday and today's were between 16-18 minutes, but felt like 45 minutes. Others are full body, some using the program I created last year. There's a lot you can do in a small amount of space. My goal is to still just stay healthy and active. I'm indoors for most of the day, so I'm taking this time to READ, grow, and play with Avery. The garden is coming along and we are still learning so much! Here are a few of the books I'm reading. Broken fidget spinner, toy car, and empty bowl of cereal I still need to clean up pictured because...that's just real life. 😊 #sahmlife #fitspo #fitsporation #plantbased #plantbasedeats #plantbasedathlete #zone8gardening #juicelife #veganeats #vegan #mawarrior #ma60dayteamlimitless #homeworkouts #fitmom #summer

Some of the things in the garden yesterday that made me smile. 1 - Taishan yellow dwarf african marigolds - started inside from seed 3/6. These look FAR better than the marigolds I purchased from Home Depot and Lowes. I will never buy marigolds again. 2 - Blue berries tomatoes are continuing to develop their bluish color. They're really pretty. 3 - Muncher cucumber being grown vertically. I grew my cukes vertically on a cage last year and found it to be a good experience. I'll likely always grow my cucumbers this way. I get pretty intrigued watching it climb. 4 - Habanero peppers coming in hot. 5 - Anaheim peppers coming in hot as well. . . _________ #growing #organicgardening #blackgirlsgarden #browngirlsgarden #zone8 #zone8b #zone8gardening #raisedbedgardening #garden #gardening #grow #growingpeppers #growingveggies #growingtomatoes #growingflowers #africanmarigold #blueberriestomatoes #munchercucumber #anaheimpeppers #habaneropeppers #wildboarfarms #growingvertically #blackwomenwithgardens #blackgirlswithgardens #austinorganicgardeners #austingardeners #centraltxgardening #texasgardening #texasgardener

Almost time to pick these cherry tomatoes. The plant is pretty loaded with them (pic 2) and that makes me happy. What DIDN'T make me happy was the leaf footed bug (3rd pic) that decided to chill on them. I tried to get it but it flew away 😫 I reapplied my BT / Neem mixture to everything yesterday as the rain, I'm sure, had washed it away. I'm telling you, the pests this year have been rude and trifling and disrespectful. But thankfully I haven't lost anything to them.

Bought some rooting hormone last weekend after deciding to try my hand at propagating herbs.

My oregano said SIKE! πŸ˜‚ Will check in another week or two by giving them a gentle tug to see if it feels like roots have started establishing.

Yesterday we had a hail storm with heavy wind and rain. I went out later to check on things and my pepper and tomato plants were leaning... HARD. I hadn't had my peppers tied to the stakes but I staked them yesterday. My tomato plants were leaning as well so I tried to straighten them up. My cucumber leaves have holes in them from the hail. I lost branches with tomatoes on them. It's a little messy outside so I'll need to straighten it up soon.

Thinning Apple fruit round 2. Round 1 I just took out the king Apple. This time I took out the fruits that were at the bottom of bunches, touching stems, removed 1 when 2 apples were touching any with damage, and removed lower fruit that wouldn't see the sun. It feels like a heartbreaking job but it pays off in the end. I'll still thin 1 or 2 more times. Thinning helps the fruit to be larger, sweeter, and less diseased. It also helps keep the tree from going bi-annual. . . #appletree #apples #fruitthinning #snacksfromplants #ediblelandscape #ediblelandscapes #ediblelandscaping #microfarming #minifarming #homesteading #farmlife #homestead #rareedible #uncommonfruit #pnwgarden #pnwgardener #temperatefruit #zone8gardening #permaculture #growingfruit #growyourown #foodforest

Garden score tonight, can’t wait to dip these babies into some ranch dressing. Had Swiss chard and spinach the other day, nothing beats fresh eats cultivated with your own hands. #organicgardening #pnwgardening #zone8gardening #pnw #upperleftusa #freshveggies #eatyourveggies #eastereggradishes #colorfulbounty

I think I am trying to do too much on my cookie-cutter lot. I need a few acres because everything I plant, grows! πŸ™„ Will be doing some maintenance pruning soon, especially after the blackberries finish. #backyardgarden #zone8gardening #tewmurch

I thought I composted these peach seeds, but they all sprouted. I am going to try to espalier them soon because they are blocking the path between the shed and the fig tree. Espalier is my last resort before pulling them up. #alwayswantedtotrythat #zone8gardening

My blue berries tomato "bush" is quite loaded. It is pretty neat how they already have a bluish tint. I think these will be so gorgeous once they start turning more. Come on, babies! It rained last night so I'm really anticipating how much more the garden will flourish over these next few days! 🌧 . . ___________ #growing #organicgardening #blackgirlsgarden #browngirlsgarden #zone8 #zone8b #zone8gardening #raisedbedgardening #garden #gardening #grow #growingtomatoes #blueberriestomatoes #wildboarfarms #blackwomenwithgardens #blackgirlswithgardens #austinorganicgardeners #austingardeners #centraltxgardening #texasgardening #texasgardener #tomatoes

Salmon berries are in full swing right now in my neck of the woods. They like dappled shade on the forest edge and are attractive shrubs that have maple like leaves. Only the young wood is thorny but only slightly. They are deciduous and grow from bushes. They do spread some and seed freely so they can be a pain. They come in bright red and bright orange. The orange ones are sweeter but I've found some good tasting red ones. They resemble raspberries but don't have the sweet and tart balance. They are juicy and refreshing but not on the same plain as raspberries or blackberries. They are a month or more earlier than raspberries with them usually coming in mid may in Seattle. They are good and worth having for earliness alone. . . #salmonberry #salmonberries #rubusspectabilis #nativefruit #snacksfromplants #ediblelandscape #ediblelandscapes #ediblelandscaping #microfarming #minifarming #homesteading #farmlife #homestead #rareedible #uncommonfruit #pnwgarden #pnwgardener #temperatefruit #zone8gardening #permaculture #growingfruit #growyourown #foodforest
