We would agree, but money is needed by people. Instead of demonising monetising things we should be asking where our money goes, what is it encouraging when we spend on some 'x' or 'y' thing?

We can democratise our world by choosing #SOLE (sustainable, #organic, local, ethical).

The #ShopEthical website is a good one. Putting aside the fact they give (Sc)Amazon an 'F'-rating and yet use (Sc)Amazon to host the site.

Btw our instance is going down, no funds for a year.

Really benefited from two months' of cooler wetter conditions. Only two years with anything of significance growing ...

These layers (and others not in shot) work together to protect & fertilise the soil, attract beneficial insects, and resist extreme weather.

Bunnytrix Hopper posing prettily in front of my wall of Melothria pendula (native cucumber).

Also caught her munching on milkweed. Has anyone ever heard of a bunny eating milkweed? I thought it was poisonous.

Bunnytrix is almost full grown now. She is standing on the ground in front of a double-layered green fence plus chicken wire. She is sitting on her bum facing right. She has a white chin and white belly and is tawny and light brown. 

Climbing up the fence is small light green ivy looking leaves. There are tiny yellow flowers but you can’t see them bc they are very small. Even smaller are the baby cucumbers.
Another pic of the rabbit is her stuffing her face in front of the milkweed. You can see most of her body but her most of her head is obscured, just her ears stick out. 

The pic was taken from a different angle in front of the native cucumber fence. There is also maypop seedlings coming out of the ground in front of the fence.

This is my larger baobab growing in a larger pot. Baobabs will adapt to the size of the growing space. I harvest leaves mostly from this plant. It is also growing with stones at the bottom and 50% sand. It is a struggle to lift up stairs into the sunroom for its seasonal migration. At these times, I regret all my life decisions.

See AltText for more growing details.

#gardening #plants #GrowYourOwn #organic #cooking

Pic shows a larger baobab tree sitting in front of a brick wall. It is nearly 5 foot not including the pot. It has two large branches coming out of the lower right and middle left and a bunch of new branches growing from the top where there was a hard cut. 

Baobabs cannot sit in water and need to be kept lifted off dampness. They can get root rot. I live in a place that gets nearly 50 inches of rainfall so I regularly have to tip the saucer filled with stones you see below. There are rocks at the bottom of the pot besides the potting soil being 50% sand. It is so intensely heavy, I have to tip the pot and saucer on heavy duty shoes or concrete slabs to drain the water. Being a bigger pot and so holding more water than the smaller pot, I do not water this baobab nearly as often in the summer. 

If you want to grow a baobab, put seeds in a cup of water over a seedling warming mat for a couple days. In two days, the seeds will crack open. Plant germinated seeds in seedling potting mix (not sand yet) in a seedling pot and let grow until true leaves appear. Then plant the seedling in 50% sand and potting mix with perlite.

2/ As a young plant, it doesn’t produce many leaves. You can see the proportion I use for my everyday salads below. The baobab leaves are on the bottom left.

Baobab leaves are high in protein and vitamins and minerals. In Africa, a porridge of dried ground leaves is used for weaning babies besides it being a culinary staple. The fruit and seeds (shell is very hard!) are also edible and tasty.

Baobab is known as the Tree of Life.

My pretty pony,… sorry, baobab.

Adansonia digitata, baobab

Easy to grow tree, but will get aphids when brought indoors in winter. See AltText for further growing details.

Leaves taste slightly peppery, and are very nice in salads. Can be juiced, cooked and stewed. Also dried, it tastes mildly herbal, tea-like. Can be ground easily into powder for soups and baking.

#gardening #jardin #GrowYourOwn #organic #plants #plantas #cooking #food

A beautiful two year old baobab seedling growing in a clay pot. It is sitting on a clay saucer with stones lifting the plant. The plant is sitting on top of green grass. The leaves are a darker and shinier green than the grass. The seedling has been cut at about ten inches from the ground and has four tall branches emerging from this cut. The cut isn’t visible and will look natural over time. The leaves are large and teardrop shaped. Each leaf stem produces three leaves but a stem will emerge out of this so on the branch, 2 leaves appear opposite each other. 

The plant is easy to grow, but has a few growing requirements. It cannot sit in water and it needs very well-draining soil. The soil I have for this plant is around 50% sand and potting soil with perlite. It is growing in a clay pot and there are rocks at the bottom of the pot to keep the roots from sitting in damp. The plant is sitting on rocks on top of the tray filled with rocks so any roots that emerge out of the pot will also not sit in water. 

I water this plant everyday in warm/hot temperatures. 

When temperatures start going below 50F/10C at night, bring indoors in a well-lit space. Do not water or water only once a month while it is in cooler temperatures. My baobabs do not defoliate in the sunroom but they don’t grow very much. I unleash hordes of ladybugs in the sunroom to control the aphid population. Occasionally, I will go on a squishing campaign.

"When you go to your farmers' market or your local retailer and purchase what you think is organic, it may not necessarily be organic.”

"Organic products intended for the Australian market don't need to meet a particular standard or be certified to be labelled organic. However, businesses that make an organic claim, such as through a claim of certification, must be able to prove the claim." (The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission)

“Certification gives consumers confidence that those products have been made without synthetic herbicides, pesticides, fertilisers, or genetic modification, and meet high standards of animal welfare, biodiversity, water conservation and regenerative land practices.”

Full shot of a slightly soft focus yellow rose - giving the impression of being in the presence of the archetype colour yellow
Unfolding peachy orange rose flower, slightly out of focus to accentuate the abstract nature of colour.
This is a really creamy orange feast of a many folded blossom, slightly out of focus to take attention away from the detail and on to the sheer sensory experience of the colour itself
The detail at the heart of this deceptively simple pink rose bloom fades into shades of pastel pink and darker as the eye drifts to the edge of the bloom.

Take 15 seconds with this great spotted woodpecker male tapping away on our feeder just now on The Bee Sanctuary of Ireland.
At least four different individuals visiting the feeder at the moment.
A privilege to observe.

Started to create my own #sustainable #zerowaste #garden and it's even #vegan because I do not use it as a toilet for the crap of animals from factory farming.

Currently working on the fourth bed, which is around 12m (~40ft) long and I am trying to put in stuff, which likes each other (#symbiosis) and all of it is #organic of course!

To live amongst trees is a privilege…
But shouldn’t be a rarity.

Stop cutting them down.
