We’re slowly, but surely, plugging along on our general plans! Most of this outline (not to scale at all) is complete or in-progress. We’ll wait for the ‘vineyard’ in fall or next year, but everything else is pretty much there. Not too shabby for 2mo work, I think! It will be way more filled in with food plants & flowers the next couple of years, but a good dent in this season’s goals. 😎 #ediblelandscaping #backyard #backyardgarden #urbanhomestead #homestead #eatyouryard #growyourown #growyourownfood

Baby Swiss chard and herbs from my #garden topped with the purple kohlrabi sprouts for lunch today (and a bunch of other #veggies and superfoods of course!). ... Using food as medicine to help detox my body. I feel like every time I turn around I’m exposed to weed killer or pesticides, especially during this time of year. This is why I make daily #detox through food, supplements and detox methods a priority. ... An accumulation of #toxins is what leads to dis-ease in your body so it’s super important for you, your family and your pets! ... If you haven’t downloaded my Detox + Glow checklist in my bio definitely do now! These are some simple actions you can start taking today.

🍉Sugar Baby Watermelon 🍉 I planted the compact variety so they could vine around tomato cages. I’ll have to tie them up with old tee shirts for support, but so far so good! #sugarbabywatermelon #organicgarden #homegrownisbest #growyourownfood #summerfruit #verticalgarden #suburbangarden #smallgarden #fishemulsion #ifyouplantititwillgrow

Veggie garden update. I feel like a proud mama! A lot of effort went into this little garden and most of the plants were started from seeds in April. We are amazed at how much it has grown already! If anyone needs dill please let me know - it’s already Jurassic Park sized and it’s only June. 😬 #veggiegarden #vegetablegarden #organicvegetables #growyourownfood #gardening #greenthumbsup

Today’s green bean harvest! Our gardens have not been doing good this year so this is awesome haha. No where near what I would like to be canning but it’s a few nights for this big family anyway( and few that get eaten raw by the little man in the pic!) . #fernforestblog #tinytwigfarm #homestead #homesteading #garden #farm #smalescalefarming #growyourown #growyourownfood #food #plants #greenbeans #harvest #gardeningwithkids #farmingwithkids #natureschool #earthschoolers #nature #mmm

Very late lunch after forgetting to eat breakfast. Lettuce, basil, and tomatoes on toasted French bread rubbed with garlic and tomato (great way to use tomatoes that are bruised) and drizzled with a little olive oil. #urbangarden #growyourownfood #vegan #veganonthecheap #pittsburghgardener #pittsburghvegan
